Three Container Planter Ideas for Planting Succulents

I know I’m not the only one in love with succulents, they’re super popular right now. It seems like all the popular magazines and bloggers are featuring room designs that have beautiful succulents in beautiful pots. They’re especially everywhere on subscribe to my YouTube channel! Not only do I love to look at them, but I love planting succulents, too, because it’s so easy!

Here in New Orleans Spring and Summer is hot in a major way, but we’re crazy people, so we still tend to spend the most time outdoors these times of the year. Now, is the time that we’re out eating our crawfish, having our BBQ’s, and planting our flowers, veggies, and fruits. Having stylish patios and backyards are a MUST this time of year, because we’re all about the “get-to-gether”.

Now, because we have only been in our new house for about 2.5 months now, we have to prioritize the projects we take on. The kitchen was the first room to be done and even though I don’t know how soon I’ll be able to fully tackle our back patio, a dog house was one of those things that I felt was a big priority and a treat to our dogs.

You should know Pocahontas already, but remember a few months ago on Instagram, I told you guys that I had a new dog? Well, he’s a Husky, named Rilo, and he is a handful!

They’re both inside dogs, but Rilo loves to go outside to hang out on the porch and play in the grass. He also really likes to eat all my veggies, bite on all my outdoor furniture, and poop everywhere he thinks my foot will land. He literally gets it right every time, so I’m starting to think he was a psychic in his past life. (more…)

The Plan for My Kitchen + Updates (One Room Challenge – Week 2)

Okay, I’m moving like a snail when it’s comes to making updates here in my kitchen, but I’m hoping to pick up the pace next week to get everything done by the end of these 6 weeks of the One Room Challenge. As I mentioned last week, I’ve tried to finish two separate projects in previous challenges (one didn’t get finished in time and the other was my bedroom in the apartment we recently moved from), so I’m really motivated this time.

Here’s a before photo of my kitchen when we first moved in:
