It’s TUESDAY TALK!
Today, I thought we’d chat about…
‘Tis that time of year when I post every picture from outside in our backyard…
…it’s where we eat…
…where we gather…
…where we work and…
…where we live.
I know, so many yard pics. #sorrysorrysorry
BUT with all the time outside and the excessive amount of pics, I get lots of random and great questions, so today, I’m answering a few about all of that yard stuff 🙂 .
Question #1: Where do you store your towels?
…we have a pool bath in the house right off the patio and inside, there is a closet where I store our towels. You know how in magazines all of the towels are navy and white striped folded and matching near the beautiful pool? Yeah, ours are not. We have an eclectic assortment from over the years…the majority of which have some sort of Disney princess on them…folded and waiting 🙂 . #itsbasicallythesamethingright We keep the towels there along with a plastic bucket of sunscreen for adults and kids along with the giant floats we haven’t inflated just yet. When we’re ready to swim, it’s easy to carry that stuff out to the patio and/or grab it from inside.
Question #2: Where did you get your slushy machine?
We have a friend with a party business and bought one of his used machines from him. My brother just bought one this last week and purchased his from a commercial party store, so I don’t have an exact answer from you, but I think a commercial restaurant store is the place to start. I’ve had questions about what’s inside our cabinet too and the answer is…
…extra sunscreen and outdoor placemats.
Question #3: Where do you get your giant floats and do they blow away?
We almost always buy them from Amazon and yes, they blow away quite often. Andrew really tries to keep them tied up to the basketball goal or else…
…they fly off 🙂 .
Question #4: Where do you store all of the goggles and pool toys?
In this bin…
…that we’ve had for years from Home Depot. It stays out year around and weathers all sorts of rain/heat/cold. At the end of a pool time, we just gather everything up and toss it inside. Then, we close the lid, and it’s all put away.
Easy as that 🙂 .
Question #5: Is that a shower I keep seeing?
It is! For quick showers after yucky days outside, the kids (and adults) can rinse off before going inside or going home (if they’re friends’ kids). Obviously, it’s not for a private shower…but it works great after the kiddos and their friends have been playing hard in the yard and covered in dirt.
Question #6: Where did you get your red chairs?
We love our red chairs!! I’ve mentioned them before in THIS home post, but it’s always a FAQ around here! I believe you can buy them at both Home Depot and Lowe’s, they’re only $20 and come in many colors. They last FOREVER and are so durable and comfy!
That’s it for today’s Tuesday Talk! If you have any other questions, I’m happy to answer them in the comment section below 🙂 .
I hope you all have the BEST day!! xo
