The best part of summer so far has been hanging out on our back porch. We all fell in love with this house once we saw the porch. Now a year later we are adding our own touches to it and making it our own oasis. New addition is party lights....Katelyn's idea and at first I wasn't a fan.....but now I really like it.







We have the ipod speaker ready to go and now we just need to party to start.....oh and the bugs to stop biting!

Happy Thursday! What's the best part of summer for you so far?

I love your porch...so pretty! Have you thought about getting a bug zapper? How about hanging some of those off repellents around ? Lots of citronella candles? My hubs sprays the area if we know well be out for a while too.

I'm so jealous. I love porches. I'd dream up such a great outdoor space if I had a few hundred thousand dollars!

Yours looks like a great place for coffee and a book or a cocktail and conversation.

i got bit the fourth time today by a horsefly and said THAT'S IT! and i stopped the mower and went in the house and sprayed myself with DEET that a friend brought from america. i didn't realize it's sticky and oily and i think i've ruined this kitchen laptop - that is, i'm stuck to it!

(i've been needing a new laptop anyway and the one i want is not produced anymore: ( (IBM))

but boy the bugs are staying away from me now! ugh, DEET tastes awful!

A year? A YEAR?! Holy COW, the time has flown. How cool is that that we've been friends for so long already? :)

The porch is beautiful; they provide an atmosphere all their own. Sorry I can't help with the bugs, as I have my own such issues over here.

What a perfect back porch. I'd be sitting there every night. If the lights haven't grown on you completely try paper lanterns. They slip right over the bulbs and hang on the cord. They also come in fabric so you can leave them up all summer. You can leave the paper ones up too but by the end of the season you'll probably have to buy new for the next summer. They create such a nice warm glow but I also love the sparkle of the bare lights. Either way looks like your summer is in full swing.
