Whew, it is Memorial day weekend and I am really looking forward to this three day weekend! With the end of school just weeks away my kids schedule is insanely hectic, we are going non-stop with school functions and spring/summer sports my kids are involved in. Which is why when we get down time, I take full advantage of it. Coming to you on this special weekend post I am sharing How to maximize outdoor living this summer.

I also am doing a little planning, and sharing my fun outdoor living ideas with you! Last summer I had the privilege of working with Cost Plus World Market to give my backyard patio space some function and style. With it being Memorial day weekend, many people are soaking in the sun and outdoor fun on this glorious three day weekend. I have big plans for that as well, to kick off what I hope to be a long summer filled with lazy days relaxing and a home full of family & friends enjoying our home. Which means a ton of entertaining on the patio.
Even though I did a lot of projects last summer, I still have a few tweaks to the flower beds as well as some new additions to the decor itself. Let me tell you, along with hanging out and hosting a BBQ I plan to shop, nothing like those glorious Memorial day sales!
Since I mentioned function as needing to be prioritized when maximizing an outdoor space, that includes organization. A place to store pillows or other decor as well as any toys kids have outside.
This summer I am focusing on improving the function of the grill area. As of now it works-ish…. we have two grills (a charcoal grill as well as gas grill), but that is it.
My red headed husband would also like a little more shade in his corner of the patio. So an umbrella is a must on my list as well. Just like the inside of my home, I want the outside of it to be 100% utilized. That can mean a place to relax, work or just enjoy the beauty of a space. Bring on more outdoor dining!
I also tend to have an idea, a rough plan of what I am going to do, but I like to flesh things out in person with the smaller details. Finalizing design ideas and what can work when I am in the store and pulling it all together.
