Our Pool is Finally Opened!

It was a very long early summer for our boys while they waited for our pool to be finished.  We needed some structural work done in addition to a new liner.  We also decided to add some built in stairs to a corner.  They couldn't wait to jump in when we finally got the go ahead from our pool guy.

Here's what our pool looked like until 2 weeks ago....

But, not anymore...

I hit up the Target outdoor clearance this week and got some great bargains at 75% off, including these lounge chairs and the ottoman being used as a side table in the picture below.  Also, the blue basket in the above picture is made of weather resistant wicker.  Definitely check your local Target if you need any outdoor stuff!!

My favorite spot to read by the pool.

Keeper is very happy about the pool being opened, too!

Happy Summer!


  1. Your outside is just as gorgeous as your inside Courtney. Have you ever given any thought to doing design work? I think you'd be awesome at it.

    1. Hi Kim, Thank you! I have thought about design work, and even took a couple of classes, but it hasn't happened yet. I think I would enjoy it so if an opportunity were to come along I will definitely take it. Hope you're having a great summer!!

  2. Yay! Happy summer!, the pool looks fabulous and I bet you guys will spend many happy hours there!, enjoy:)

    1. Thanks Krista! We are definitely enjoying the pool. We've had lots of very hot and humid weather here. Hope your summer is going well!
