Let there be Gravel!

I went with the Shabby Apple navy striped skirt. Thanks for the feedback!

To be honest, I don't have it in me to create a fab Friday's Fancies post. My mental energy has been channeled at work and whatever I have left is put into the patio.

Work started on Tuesday, but we've hit a few hurdles with a delivery delay and rain. Oh, the rain! I know we need it in Chicago, but why now? And of course the storms were at night, so I didn't sleep very well. On Thursday morning, our patio hole was looking like a swimming hole!

So instead of filling in the hole with gravel, they were pumping out water and removing part of the driveway.

Fortunately, our permeable pavers were delivered!

And they were able to remove part of the driveway.

We also we went ahead and ordered our patio table and chairs! Yes, they're from Walmart, but the set met all off our requirements:
  • A table for 6
  • A metal tabletop
  • 2 swivel bouncy chairs
  • Under $1,000

The patio set also had really, really good reviews. One lady even left a review 2 years later saying how well it's held up.

In other good news, they're filling the hole with gravel as I type!

Hope you have a fantastic weekend!
