Pool Time

Warm weather has finally arrived and seems to be here to stay for Summer now!  I finally was able to have a weekend full of pool time this past weekend.  I tell you since we moved into the house back in November, I've been longing for the days I could spend hours in our backyard reading and laying out poolside.  I finally was able to take full advantage.  We had no plans this past weekend, which is rare.  We did have some friends come visit us, but we took it easy, spending time in the hot tub after dinner and then hanging out in the pool the next day.  It was fabulous!  Just what a weekend should be - oh so relaxing. 

We recently purchased these two chaise lounges and side table at Target.  We also bought the beverage tub at Target as well, but I've used it for towels, sunscreen and other necessities.  We plan on adding cushions and pillows to make it look a little cozier, and we have an umbrella to put up when it's not so windy. 

So this is where I sat this weekend.

With these views. 
(Yes, and Gus roaming around the yard when he's not in the pool swimming.)

I was also reading this book.  I have the dvd's with the interview recordings, but it's fun to read the book with the footnotes too.   I recently read "Mrs. Kennedy and Me" as well and loved it.  She is so fascinating!

Hope you enjoyed the glimpse of our backyard.

I think this is what I'll be doing a lot this summer.  My view probably won't change too much from this picture above, well except for maybe a different nail polish color.  :)
