backyard inspiration...

now that we have an honest-to-goodness yard boone and i have been talking about how to make it a good looking, really fun place to be. to do this, we've done some backwards planning and identified some next steps to get there. Here they are:

Step 1: get ready to entertain
how fabulous would this look in my backyard filled with ice and beer? i'll tell you---- so fabulous. should it really be step 1? maybe not, but i can dream.

Step 2: get a dog and a place to keep said dog
so, (don't tell my dad) there are four stray dogs that are living near the preK classrooms at a school i visit. these dogs are sweet, just the right size, good looking AND they need a home really badly. boone and i are thinking about bringing one or two of them home to live with us in the backyard..which means we need a goodlooking dog pen/dog house.

Step 3: set up the hammocks.
do you need more information about this?
Step 4: Decorate
um..we've actually already accomplished step 4. maybe that's backwards, but michelle and michael gave us this WONDERFUL birdhouse when we got married and I'd been dying to hang it up. PLUS we had a bottle tree stand we 
 needed to utilize and some deep windchimes.

images from AT, google and a random blog(our birdhouse and bottletree and the dog we're going to get LOOK like these, but these aren't ACTUALLY ours)

Yay, I'm glad you have a place for the birdhouse now!

Also, I laughed at all of the TFA language that is present in this post!
