And now we can enjoy the outdoors

While most of the country is prepping for fall and winter, we’re getting out of the oven heat and enjoying some sweet weather.

Outdoor sales is our time to stock up to get ready to go outside and play.  I love that we get to benefit from it, there’s no reason to pay full price for any outdoor anything.  Here’s what I found online at great prices.  If you’ll be putting your outdoor goodies away, you could always stock up for when the snow melts, it’s like buying a season ahead!  As always, I may or may not have already bought a few of these.


(1) Armillary Sculpture, on sale $35 perfect for peas to climb / (2) Garden rabbit, on sale $60 because now I’m that crazy rabbit lady / (3) Punched Star Candle Sconce on sale $15 to illuminate the nights / (4) Stepping Stones, on sale $13 each also comes in green / (5) Colorblock pot, on sale $10, comes in pink too / (6) Swivel chair, on sale $40.

Oh, and here’s a little refreshing drink.  This completely accidental like a Christopher Columbus discovery.  It happened years ago at the soda fountain at Sauce when I was having lunch with my girlfriend Nicole and she decided to mix these two and I followed suit. You just need two things.

Pure incredible freshness!  We now always have a fridge stocked with Sobe and Sierra Mist.  There’s no recipe, just put in the ice, fill it up with Sierra Mist and add some Sobe at the end (it’s heavier than the soda).  You could do 3 parts SM, or do equal.  Put it down on your grocery list, then leave me a comment later telling me your thoughts.
