Rain, Rain, Go Away!

I was hoping to have a gorgeous tan right now, after spending my 4th of July break here:

But that did not work out as I planned.  I ended up spending zero time in the sun because it rained in Atlanta for about six days straight.   At least the rain kept the temperatures down (good for our plants and power bills)!

I’m praying for sun this weekend, what about ya’ll?

Outdoor Dine Time

This past weekend the weather was absolutely gorgeous in Atlanta.  It definitely has me excited about Spring and having a tan line!   Grilling out and sitting by the pool/lake are some of my favorite things to do.  And it’s almost that time of year here in the south.

Fur

Lately all this cold weather has me wishing I had a big fur blanket to cuddle up in.   Atlanta weather has been so sporadic in the last couple of weeks.  One day it will be 73 degrees and then for three days straight the high temperature is like 50.  I can’t decide whether to turn the heat on or not.  I’d love to add a little fur to my apartment somehow… Faux fur, of course :)

Ikea has some great faux fur area rugs like this Tejn rug.  It would be so nice to have one right next to the bed.  My feet would love it first thing in the morning.

If faux blankets/pillows/rugs are too much for your home, perhaps you would like to add a little faux fur to your wardrobe like Kate Moss:

I’ve always wanted to have one of these furry hats but honestly don’t think I would ever wear it.  Think what your hair would look like when you took it off!  [JCrew Toscana Shearling Trapper Hat]

LOVE the furry print on this scarf… Sorry it’s probably not available any more… From One Kings Lane.

Anthrop0logie’s Divna Fur Jacket

Or I looove their Collared Peplum coat in Yellow.  But let’s be honest, you couldn’t wear a bright coat like this too often or you would be “the girl with the yellow fur collared coat”.

I have ALWAYS wanted some furry moccasin slippers like these Dakotas from Ugg Australia.  [hint hint, Santa Claus]

That’s all the fur I have for you today!

Porches

There are only a few more weeks left to sit out on the porch and enjoy this beautiful weather.  So that’s what I’ll be doing with my glass of wine :)  If only my porch looked a little more like one of these…

By the way, can you tell that I love a porch swing?

 

 

 

Absolutely in love with those slipcovers and that ceiling.  Pretty much in love with everything about this picture.  I wonder where this is?  If anyone knows, feel free to speak up.

SR Gambrel — I don’t normally like red so much, but this red and white is simple enough for me.  Not to mention the surround yard looks sooo peaceful.

Goal for the weekend: to not melt

The temperature in Atlanta is expected to be around 107 degrees this weekend… Shoot me now.  I am miserable in hot weather.  I literally melt.  I love the sun but not when it feels like I’m on fire.  You can find me inside in the air conditioning all weekend long.  Although I wish I could be enjoying the great outdoors.  What I wouldn’t give for a pool in my backyard to just sit in allll dayyy loooong.   But a pool might just feel like a hot tub in these scorching temperatures.  If I ever have a pool, I’ll be sure to look at these pictures as inspiration…

And I’ll be drinking one (or like four) of these to forget about how insanely hot it is:
