Pispiration: Outdoor Patio Areas

Hey, y’all!  The house is coming along! Right now, it’s just a bunch of wood.  Super interesting! šŸ˜‰


The weather has delayed the builder a bit, but every time we drive by there are one or two guys out there working on the framing. Seeing them work always reminds me why I wasn’t meant to be a construction worker.  (I also wasn’t meant to do jumping jacks or push-ups, but that is for another day) If you sent me to a job site and pointed at a pile of wood, we would have problems. Like major structural problems. Like the house would not stand problems.  I remember the time that we built a gingerbread house from scratch when Jackson was just a preschooler.  Bless it, that poor gingerbread house looked more like a condemned crack house.  Robert even went so far as to find yellow caution tape so he could wrap a perimeter around it while I was out one night.  Anyhow, I haven’t made another gingerbread house since then and it’s good to have skilled workers building your home.  šŸ˜‰ It’s slowly getting there!

 Anyway, since the weather is warming up, I am starting to think about our back patio area!  I can’t wait to sit on our back porch and watch the kids play!


Do you sense a theme.  Backyard twinkle lights are my favorite.  I have no clue if they are allowed in our future HOA, but I’ve never been good at following rules…so you know I’ll try.  šŸ˜‰


This swing makes me want to grab a glass of iced tea and a good book!


And, this.  Lord, help me…I must have pinned this years ago.  And, I swear that I am going to host a movie night with giant planters of popcorn under the stars in our new backyard if it is the very last thing I do. šŸ™‚


Also, I’m obsessed with cozy firepits


and charming pathways


and more firepits

Our backyard has a tree line, but it faces South so I am thinking we will be getting too much sun for these sweet flowers.  But, this is my Pinterest pretend backyard…and I’ll have shade plants if I want. haha šŸ˜‰


And, glass topped barrels.  How cute is this!!  I think we may even make these nightstand tables since the glass might be tricky outside.  So fun!


While I was pinning all of these goodies, I came across these.


Dear Keebler Fudge Striped Smores, I love you.  Just roast or microwave your marshmallows and smoosh between two of these cookies.  Yes, ma’am!

Happy Tuesday, y’all!! XOXO Narci

  1. And now I’m thinking I need twinkle lights in my backyard!! And lots of gorgeous flowers. And someone to come water them daily because I never remember. šŸ™‚


  2. These patio inspirations make me want to head outside right this second! They all look so cozy and straight out of Parenthood. I can’t wait until your house is finished! So exciting girl!


  3. We have twinkle lights on our pergola… but I’m thinking we need more. When I get them up you’re coming over to hang out and girl talk with me under the lights šŸ™‚


  4. These outdoor spaces are amazing!! All I want to do after reading this is curl up in that porch swing with a good book & a handful/bowlful of those S’more cookies!!
