Disneyland 2012 ~ Summer vacation Part 1

 Hi friends! 
   We're back from California! What a great vacation but boy am I pooped! We were on the go the whole 10 days we were there. The kids enjoyed themselves so much! I want to share some Disney pics with you. You know the magic of Disney even turns us grown-ups into kids again:)
   Bare with me, this post is going to be picture overload!!
  Victoria couldn't wait to walk through the castle. See that autograph book she's holding, she made sure it was full before we left! 
   Some pictures of the parade.
  Night time shots and the amazing fireworks display!

  Hope I didn't bore you with all these pictures!
I have so much more to share with you so stay tuned. 
Thanks for stopping by and have a super weekend!

~White Kitchens~

 Hi friends!
I know I've been out of the loop, but with the kids home for the summer I really have no projects planned. Just enjoying family time with no homework, no sport meets, no bedtimes or alarms waking us up in the morning, and we are getting ready for our upcoming trip to California next week, can't wait :) So I'll be taking a little break for the next 2 weeks.

I love white kitchens, how about you? Here are some images that I feel in love with.

 Love the chicken wire in the upper cabinets!

  Look at that fabulous sink.

 These next two are my favs!!
 I love exposed brick!
 So which one was your favorite?  

I hope your all having a fabulous summer! See ya in a few weeks!

Freshened up the deck using Padre Brown

Back in May after my hubby had knee surgery I took on the job of staining our deck. It's been about 5 years since it was last stained and was totally faded from the sun. 
Our back deck is not that big but it took me 3 days to finish it! NEVER AGAIN!! I told the hubby when this needs to be done again we are replacing it with Trek decking, he agreed.

Home Depot sells little sample cans of stain which is great if your not sure on the color you want. That was a good thing in my case because the first three colors I tried I didn't like! I finally decided on Padre Brown.
What a difference already!
We had a retractable awing installed our first summer in this house. Our deck is in full sun all day, we would never be able to sit out there. It also helps keep the sun out of our breakfast area and kitchen.
I planted Portulaca in the clay pot on the table. It thrives in the sun.
My tomato plant is doing great too and we started seeing little tomatoes, can't wait to pick them!!
I love the contrast of the dark brown stain with our taupe siding.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a Happy 4th of July!!

A little Country French lovliness

          Hi friends!
 Hope you all had a great weekend and stayed cool!! We spent most of the weekend in the pool with the kids. In between swimming and going for ice cream I found a little time to surf the web, look at all this prettiness I found on the BHG website.
 Love these chairs!

 Look at this gorgeous bed.

  Have a super week and thanks so much for stopping by!
