Enjoying the Great Outdoors

Now that the warm weather is here to stay, we have been spending most of our time outside.

Found this idea on Pinterest. Cupcake wrappers on a popsicle- genius!

As I have told you before, I am not a gardener. But happily, I have a husband who is! Jeff has been busy cleaning up the backyard and making our other living area comfortable. We are hosting a backyard summer party this weekend, so he wanted his yard to look its best :)

First,  we (he) started with some new potted plants. I love these succulents, they remind me of the ones I saw in Napa last summer.

Next on the list, re-painting our wooden patio furniture.

And finally it was onto the removal of bugs. We seem to live in an area with a lot of mosquitos. And my girls are so sweet, those bugs just won't leave them alone. Luckily, we have a great candle from Cutter that really helps on the patio.

Then I have been using the Cutter Dry spray and Cutter Natural spray directly on our skin.

Finally, Jeff treated the backyard with two different types of Cutter Backyard Bug Control. This has been such an effective way to prevent all those itchy bug bites!

What are you doing to get ready for summer?

  1. We have been LIVING outside too! I broke out the kiddie pool a few days ago. I also use the Cutter spray for the kids, but I failed to earlier this week and Luke got a big bite on his face. Have a great party this weekend!

  2. Cupcake wrappers!!! Yay! One of my major summer problems solved!
