Decorating Finds

Hey there, remember this post over here:
It was all about my inspiration for my apartment I will be living in come September. Well scratch all that because I have a new inspiration. Since I love the beach, and I live in New England during school, I thought an old beach cottage feel would be absolutely adorable! So far I have started buying things for my room and bathroom, and will work with the other girls to find things for the common spaces like kitchen, and living room/dining room area.
But for now here is a little look at a few things I have gotten so far.. more to come!

I thought this would be cute in the bathroom

Little beach chair to hold a candle on

A cute shutter looking hanger for towels 

Old sign to hang up in my room

An antique looking tin to possibly put flowers in

So there you have it thats what i have so far. A bunch of do it yourself decoration ideas will be coming your way soon :)

Its Independence Day

Here is a look at some of the food I made for out yummy fourth of July bbq

little blurry picturee

shrimp cocktail, meatballs with a chimichuri sauce, and
proscuitto di parma

mini quadruple mac and cheese with bacon and panco topping

This is my boyfriend dan's dog eddie. He walked onto the raft
all by himself and did a little surfing. He was loving the pool!
I also made my famous ribs to go with the spread. Other things at the bbq included two pasta salads, more ribs, venison tenderloin, perogies, a quiche, some salad, and of course some burgers and hot dogs.
The meal was finished off with a million deserts including my second try and lemon tarts which came out much better this time, and some smores later on in the night.

Hope you all had a wonderful fourth of july full of food and fun!
