cottage trip 2012 highlights

Our final trip of the summer has come and gone. Even though it rained almost the whole time we were there, we still managed to squeeze in some staple cottage activities during the few dry hours we had outside and made up our own fun inside as well. Here are some of the highlights from the trip: Continue reading

lucy loves :: waterlogged

If Lucy had a say in this post, it wouldn’t be happening. She actually hates water. Being a terrier, she would rather dig in the dirt than dip one paw in the water. Regardless, here are three things that would be great for the water-loving dog.

1. Lifejacket. Lucy has a life jacket she wears when we take her on boat rides. She is less than thrilled with it. (see photo below)

2. Water Toys. West Paw Design’s Hurley toy is great for playing fetch in the water since it’s totally buoyant.

3. Cooling Bandanna. Dip this bandanna from My Outward Hound in water then tie it around your dog’s neck to keep them cool when it’s hot out (and they aren’t swimming). Lucy’s thinking this is a must have since she’s not a fan of those super hot summer days.

We’ll be dusting off her life jacket again this week at the cottage. I know she can’t wait!

happy monday

Happy Monday! It’s a short week for me since we’re heading up to Canada midweek to spend time at my parent’s cottage on Lake Huron. Looking forward to spending days on the lake, sunset boat rides and campfires.

Stay tuned for another addition of Lucy Loves and some cool events I’ve been working on in Columbus!

Enjoy your day!

Happy Monday! I’m back and feeling refreshed and rejuvenated from our lovely beach trip! We got crab legs not once, but TWICE, and every day was sunny and beautiful. Can’t ask for much more than that! We didn’t get in until late last night, so my apologies for the late Monday post. Stay tuned though, I have some fun stuff planned for the upcoming week! The photo above is one of the pics from my trip. Check out my photos on instagram for some more fun highlights @stuffstephdoes.

Enjoy the rest of your day!

beach bag essentials

I think this will be the 42,876th time I’ve mentioned it, but, B and I are headed to the beach this week! Woot! Design Sponge posted this awesome diy beach bag project out of a mesh screen and since I am completely in love with it, I used it as inspiration for planning my next few days of soaking in the oceanside rays. Here’s some of my essentials for beach days:

1. A good read. I’ve started this book already and I’m sure I’ll finish it up this week. // 2. Keep a hat on to protect your hair and scalp. How adorable is this hat from Target? // 3. Sunscreen is a must! I always put stronger, oil-free stuff on my face to keep up my youthful appearance 🙂 // 4. Need to stay hydrated when the sun is beating down on you all day. // 5. I typically keep the books away from the beach because I don’t like to get them sandy, so I read magazines down by the water. I try to keep it well rounded balancing out the modern design with a healthy dose of celebrity gossip.

Alright I suppose I should actually pack instead of blogging about it! Enjoy your Tuesday!

Happy Monday! Hope everyone’s weekend was lovely. B and I went to the food and truck and fest on Friday with some friends and then explored some of the unseen areas of Columbus. The picture above is one I took on instagram. (you can see more by following me on instagram @stuffstephdoes)

This week is going to be especially awesome because B and I only have two days of work before heading to South Carolina for some much needed beach time. I’m excited to soak in the sun (with sunscreen of course!) and catch up on some reading since I never seem to be able to read at home.

Today’s song has no theme, I just really like it, so I hope you do too!

Enjoy your week!
