Be Our Guest....

It is summertime in Florida which means one thing...visitors! It's no surprise friends and family love to come down and visit for a summer vacation.  Making sure they feel welcomed and comfortable are super important! It is always a good thing to be the hostess with the mostess :)  
All that aside I am certainly a little over anxious this year because I finally have an actual guest room and guest bath! Since I recently finished the guest room I thought I would write up a quick little post about how you can prepare for any visitors this summer too!
Obviously rule #1.  Get the bed linens all laundered and fresh.  Including some new bath towels and wash cloths.  I found these plush striped towels at my local Marshalls and thought they looked super cute with the guest room theme. 




Make sure the guest room has a side table lamp as well as an overhead light.  This way in the evening if your guest wants to read they can do so without illuminating the whole room.

Dining Al Fresco...

I am sooo excited to finally share that the new patio dining set is (all) here and I love it!  I found this set about a month ago and shared it with you all but couldn't really vouch for quality till now. This post contains affiliate links.

Last week you probably saw how all my chairs got delivered and how PUMPED I was that each chair came fully assembled! YES! I said fully assembled.  If you have assembled or have read reviews on assembling the wicker outdoor furniture then you understand what a big deal this is!   However a shipping mistake happened and I received extra chairs and no table.  However I immediately called customer service and they were awesome and rush ordered the new table and I got to keep the extra chairs.
So now I can officially say this dining set gets my stamp of approval!

I looked around for a while trying to find a 6 person dining set (brown wicker AND glass top AND cushions)  that was under $1000.  Well, it was hard...and when I t…

A Little place called Amelia Island....

Last weekend we kicked off summer by heading North (about 4 hours) to a little historic town called Amelia Island.   My husband always talks about heading North to Jacksonville so that is how the idea came about.  Me...I am always looking what's South of us.  It's like I completely forget there is a whole other half of Florida to explore! I am so happy we took this trip and I think it was the perfect combination of relaxing and exploring.
We stayed at the Omni Amelia Island Plantation Resort.  What a slice of heaven! This property is HUGE and offers so many different types of rooms.  From the standard hotel resort room to villas to full blown condos.  Getting around the hotel is a breeze since they offer free trams that you literally just call (by pressing 0) and they come right to your location.  Or you can stand by all the numerous "tram stops".  
Aside from the gorgeous resort the historic downtown is definitely worth the trip! The cutest little shops, restaurants an…
