Backyard Bliss.

I love Spring.  When the weather starts to warm up I look forward to wine and s’mores in our backyard.  Looking to spruce up your backyard for Spring and Summer?  Here are some pieces that will create the backyard oasis that you’ve been dreaming of.

That being said, I have two kids to put through college and have no business paying $25,000 for a tub and some bathroom fixtures- so, I’ll be finding the next best thing (at a price I can afford.)… But a girl can dream, right?

Oushak Rugs  |  Kiki's List

Recently, I had a reader ask about our kitchen rug.  Unfortunately, it’s a one-of-a-kind Oushak that I bought on Etsy.  The good news is that there are a ton of other one-of-a-kind rugs out there!  Here are a few that I sourced:

our little mermaid.

Our Little Mermaid  |  Kiki's List

A couple of weeks ago, our little Lou turned seven.  She wanted a mermaid party inspired by her last Halloween costume.  It was so much fun designing the details.

Our Little Mermaid  |  Kiki's List Melissa custom-made these invitations for us.  Our Little Mermaid  |  Kiki's ListLou was so excited for the day of her party to finally arrive.Our Little Mermaid  |  Kiki's ListLuckily, her theme matched our porch.  😉Our Little Mermaid  |  Kiki's ListMint is Lou’s favorite color, so it made things very easy.

However, I had the brilliant idea of surprising the girls with goldfish thinking that they could double as centerpieces.  (I know, I am a maniac.)  I figured it was a great lesson in responsibility.  Much to my chagrin, my girls are far more responsible than I thought… I also learned that these goldfish can live up to 40 years.  Yowsa.Our Little Mermaid  |  Kiki's ListBut they love them.  Lou named hers Sparkles, and E named hers Lucky.Our Little Mermaid  |  Kiki's ListJust two more animals on this crazy farm… but back to the decorations…
