Popcorn In The Pool!

I hope this blog post finds you staying cool in this summer heat :) and I don’t know about you but I am so happy it’s Friday; been dealing with some computer issues this week [AGAIN] so I am MORE than ready to have a few days off to lay by the pool!

This weekend is a special one for the Pilant household as it marks six months of us living here in our forever home. Can you believe it? It’s already been six months. CRAZY! Initially, we were going to throw a “Sweet Home Marriage” party tomorrow to celebrate both our 2015 elopement and this year’s house purchase. However, after experiencing our first Summer in Pauma Valley, we decided to NOT make our guest miserable and postponed it closer to the one-year mark — most likely sometime this coming January as it will be much cooler then ;)

One of the areas #MeandD have most enjoyed in our new home [I can still call it new, right?] is the backyard pool. Since I grew up on a dryland farm in Central Nebraska, the whole concept of having a pool is so foreign to me. As kids, my mom used to drive AT LEAST a half an hour one-way to take us to a public pool. So needless to say, I’m loving it. Seriously. You have no idea how much and my husband is too. I jokingly call him by pool boy ;) he just laughs. It’s just so nice for us to have this place to relax!

I mean it doesn’t matter if you’re in the water floating around or even just lounging underneath our giant umbrella with a cold ice tea, it’s simply an #instahappy experience waiting to happen and I cannot wait to share it with all of our friends!

Plus, I’ve been thoroughly enjoying the “shopping” experience as well :) can someone say new swimsuits? I am currently obsessed with Marysia Swim. Maria Dobrzanska Reeves‘ designs are so fun and beyond comfortable. The material is to die for; feels like you’re not really wearing a swimsuit at all. That’s right! This suit is THAT comfortable. Highly recommend!

I love to pair it with my “Mrs. Pilant” hat that I got off of Etsy, these “very Jackie O.” sunglasses and this crocheted tank top I got ON SALE from REVOLVE Clothing for my “Jenna & Kristin Take Vegas” trip this past May!

Yeah, so we are definitely enjoying home ownership over here :) there’s still a lot of progress to be made on the house [in general] but we are taking it all in stride. I will continue to update you as we make improvements. IN FACT, please check back the early part of next week as I reveal the big project we just wrapped with SolarWatt Solutions. It’s going to give us much more pool time year around! Have a fantastic weekend, y’all, and stay cool out there!
