Make: Gardening Bug

A few of my coworkers are busy planting their gardens right now, and to get outside I decided to make a little garden in the corner of our patio! Of course I had to make it as colorful as possible, so here is a how to on how to make a girly-not-so-outdoorsy patio garden:

Start by getting some terracotta pots and trays, acrylic paint in your favorite colors and some paint brushes.

Paint a layer of white on your pot so the colors are vibrant and true.

Paint on your design!

Then, layer some potting soil in and plant your seeds according to their directions. I planted pepper seeds and basil seeds, as well as some already growing gerber daisies and cilantro.

Visit: Monte Sano State Park

I had the day off yesterday, so Ryan and I decided to experience Huntsville! We drove to Monte Sano state park for some hiking and picture taking, we had a beautiful day for it and can't wait to go back!

Wear: The Lady in Red

Necklace: Boutique in Arizona | Shirt: Thirty-Six boutique
Skirt: Anthropologie | Shoes: Clarks

It's so warm here in the south! I'm currently in denial about the amount of humidity, if I pretend it doesn't exist then it doesn't exist. My dog Audrey taught me if she hides under the couch and can't see me, then I can't see her even if her tail is sticking out- so I'm having the same mentality about humidity.

I am loving the warmth now though, it's letting me wear my summer clothes earlier than expected. Although- be prepared in a month when I start complaining about wanting to wear my fall sweaters. I'm still in talks with mother nature about monthly rotations of the seasons.

Wear: Southern Blue Skies

Dress: Anthropologie | Shoes: Clarks | Necklace: Tiffany's (gift from Ryan)

Hello to my first post from Huntsville! Look at that beautiful blue sky! I've had such a great week this first week, not only has the weather been beautiful, but our apartment is fantastic and I really really love my new job! Sorry for the much delayed post, but it's been so crazy moving down here. I've definitely been a bit homesick, but it's so exciting starting this new life.

I've got to keep this post short and sweet to finish unpacking- I just heard Ryan yell, "you're so messy!!".  I don't think he was expecting all this girly girl stuff.... poor guy!!
