Front Porch Renovation: Ideas

April 16, 2014 | Posted by Leave a Comment

Could this really be happening? Is NY’s weather finally starting to heat up after what seems like a year long winter? Let’s all cross our fingers…

Now that it’s finally spring, I’m thinking about all the projects I want to tackle. One of the top 3 on my list is renovating our front porch. It’s pretty fugly right now, like really bad, but I think I’m up for the challenge. It’s an indoor porch with black carpeting. Oh and pillars that have been painted white about 10 times over. The paint is chipping, the windows wont open because they’ve been painted shut and the carpet needs to be taken out or cleaned. I keep looking at ideas of what I’d like, and I’ve found a few awesome indoor porches I thought I’d share.

This is perfection. Love the painted ceiling.

Is this even legal? So adorable with the pops of color


Lanterns for Porches

Lanterns are my porch weakness. These will be happening on our porch fo sho.


I can’t even believe I found this dream porch on Pinterest. Seriously, this bar is exactly what I want. And lanterns! Ugh. Need it all now.


The wood floors = to die for. I am also obsessed with pops of color on porches.


Doesn’t looking at pretty porches make you so happy? I know it does for me :) Can’t wait to have that baby up and running for summer time dinners! Yes, the porch will be up and running.

Happy hump day!

Our Vacation to Florida & The Bahamas

April 9, 2014 | Posted by Leave a Comment

I haven’t posted in forever! But I have a good reason – we’ve been on vacation for the last week! It’s been so long since we’ve taken a nice long, relaxing vacation, this was much needed. We actually went on a cruise out of New York City on NCL’s Breakaway ship. It. Was. Amazing. I can’t even tell you how much fun we had and how much delicious food we ate. Seriously the best time ever. I thought I’d share a few photos of our trip – enjoy!

Look how blue the water was. Definitely the bluest I have ever seen it.

When we were in Great Stirrup Cay, which is Norwegian Cruise Line’s private island, we saw Royal Caribbean’s Explorer of the Seas, which is the first ship we ever cruised on! So cool to see that.

By far my favorite picture taken below.

Do you like cruising? Where have you gone?
