Light It Up

We got the house!!! As soon as we found out, I immediately started planning the decor. We have most of what we need inside, but this house has an amazing backyard that I can't wait to spruce up. 

I knew my first purchase would be string lights. The owners actually have some up that they are taking with them, so I started my search as soon as we found out, since they are a seasonal item and won't be around much longer!

First I went to Target. I found exactly what I was looking for. And the price was right.

But then I read reviews online and apparently they shatter too easily. 

So then we went to Home Depot, Lowe's, and Homegoods. We found some pretty ones, like this

and this

I love the paper lanterns but I don't think they would hold up well outside.

Then I try Pottery Barn and JACKPOT! I found the perfect ones!

The strand was really long and they are a great price! I was sold. So I add them to my cart to only find out that they are on backorder until OCTOBER! If you know me in real life, you know that I have about zero patience. So obviously this was not going to work. I get all sad for a minute then continue on my search.

Enter: partylights.com. They have the exact same ones, for a better price, that they can ship to me today! 

Now that this important matter is taken care of, I can concentrate on patio furniture. Craigslist and I will be spending a lot of time together! :)

I've been such a bad commenter lately, but I've been reading along! I'm so glad you got your house, and I bet those lights will be so cheery. I can't wait to see pictures of it all decorated and put together!

I hope you've been having a great time, and that you get a moment to do some celeb creeping soon. :) PICTURES if you do!!!!!
