So What Wednesday

Hi everyone! Hope all is going well and that you're keeping the "so what?" attitude.

SO WHAT  if...

  • So what if we were nastily threatened to be sued if we didn't take the photo of Trix Krispies off of our blog. Some garb about "intellectual property."  Even though we gave proper credit the person WITH a link back to her blog so people would see where it came from.  She was going to "report" us... (to who? the blog police?") if we didn't remove it "within 24 hours."   Really? It's Trix cereal and marshmallows, people...
  • we removed it.  
  • Everyone is always so excited about Summer. I'm always a little panicked about it.  A lot of kids, food, wet towels, rides, money given out, etc. 
  • I haven't worn shoes in 4 days as my blisters from dancing all night at the wedding are still healing.

  • My college son went to stay with Jen for the weekend.  He brought about 2 months worth of laundry for her to graciously clean.  I got a text from her saying "He only brought one bath towel.  Is that alarming?"                

again, college rocks!!!!

Have a great Wednesday from in your back pocket.

White Jeans

I know you've all heard the ANCIENT rule: No white till after Memorial Day.  We don't believe that , but if you do, here's some easy inspiration for you.

Memorial Day fun: Monogrammed Cornhole

A cute idea for your backyard party...You know our fascination with monogrammed ANYTHING!
Did you know it was called "Cornhole?"  My Country-Big-Bad-Husband taught me that.  I just know it as "bags."

These bottom two are available at Style My Corn toss on Etsy. 

Have a great long weekend, from the girls of in your back pocket.

Coffee Stations

 More than drinking coffee, I love the IDEA of coffee- warn cup, smell, etc.  I want a cute, organized, inviting station in my kitchen.  Not one filled with a coffee maker and messy K-cups, lovely  protein powder (teenage son,) dog treats (cute retriever,) and sometimes a toaster (lazy kids who don't put it back in cabinet.)

We also love the look of a coffee bar someplace unexpected..

( Kind of a wimpy coffee station, but just like the photo.)

Put an inviting "coffee bar"coffee in your back pocket.

"Runner" Hoarder

I can admit it. I have a problem (well, one of many) with carpet runners.  Whenever I bring a new gem home I get this look from my Big Bad Husband that says  "oh HELL no." 
Below are a few that are currently in the my runner graveyard. Saved from going 6 feet under simply to show evidence of the obsession....
I must admit, this problem is the reason I do'nt buy expensive runners.  They get stained, covered in dog hair and the "damn corners" roll up which drives BBH insane. 

By the way Homegoods has quite a selection these days...
Here's a little justification...

See, they can add a little punch of graphic or colorful detail.  Although I currently have a plain ol' jute one in my kitchen right now...just for a change.
I know we've posted about this before, but stay on the lookout for a great new runner...from in your back pocket.
