Happy Thursday!!! I am soooo excited for today’s reveal! I’ve had this vision for my outdoor patio and grill area for so so long but have never gotten around to actually completing it until now! Since my divorce, I have this newfound love for planting flowers, creating beautiful planters and fixing up all of my outdoor spaces. Being outside is so therapeutic and having friends over has been a huge part of my healing and “moving on” so it’s kind of the best of both worlds. I used to be the girl that bought all kinds of beautiful hanging baskets and then forgot that they needed to be watered. Now I literally look forward to spending time outside every evening watering everything. It’s all a part of my newfound love for living in the moment and enjoying the little things. I’ll have a little dork moment here for a moment and say that it’s been fun to watch everything grow and thrive as I am trying to do the same. Yep, told you. Me and my weird mind these days 😉
Today I have teamed up with Walmart and their “Save Money Live Better” campaign to get my outdoor grill area Game Day Ready!!! And wine night… and kiddo sleepover outdoor dance party… and smores night ready. We have seriously been using our outdoor spaces an absolute ton lately. It’s even in our weekend plans. I love shopping Walmart online for so many reasons. Of course, the prices are THE BEST! Plus, shipping is FREE for orders over $35 and most things ship so fast! Perfect for this crazy busy single momma. For my outdoor grill area, I wanted to add touches to the space that made it feel like an outdoor extension of my home. I LOVE the hanging cutting boards in my kitchen so I wanted to add the same touch to the grill wall with this wood cutting board and this small round marble one. From there I did a few new hanging baskets, hung grill tools and added a few cute little pots. I also wanted some simple seating so I found these super affordable barstools. Love the color of them too! And finally, I got all kinds of cute serving bowls, tiered platters and appliances for the space! I am OBSESSED with this three-piece crockpot buffet server. I also got a little ice countertop ice maker too! Sorry, I am a wee bit excited about this space. LOL. Oh and I am also sharing MY FAVORITE PARTY DIP recipe at the bottom of this post as well! It is so easy and SOOOO YUMMY!!!
The BEST and EASIEST Spinach & Artichoke Dip!
First, cook spinach according to microwave cooking instructions. Combine jalapeno slices (to taste), drained jar of artichoke hearts and cooked spinach in a blender or food processor. Blend until chopped well. In a medium stovetop pan on medium heat, combine two blocks of cream cheese and blended mix and heat until the cheese is melted. Once all melted and mixed, place in small crockpot and heat on high until hot. Enjoy!
