A Casual Day

Some days I wish I had a beautuful lawn out back


So I could lounge around and play a few rounds of croquet with friends



Then move over to the patio area for a BBQ and some cocktails



Yea, that would be a really nice day.

Oooh, yeah, that patio! Love it! Love the croquet pics, I had a croquet image in a post last week, so summery! That's a sport I can actually play, too, lol!

unfortunately a gorgeous yard like that either means you can't relax b/c you have to work so damn hard at it ... or you are busy working a ton to pay for someone to keep it looking gorgeous! hahaha, jk ... i'm just jealous! the hubster is working away on trying to create that in our backyard. figure it's a few years away but it's great to dream and get inspiration!!

Croquet makes me think of that movie "Heathers." Have you seen that? It might have been before your time :)
