Eat Drink & Be Mary


Edisto Island '16

Every year Thomas and his family go on a beach trip to Edisto Island, and I've been going for the past four years (minus last year, none of us went, because well wedding madness).  It is the best place for a family beach trip.  It's not touristy, at all.  So quaint, and very family friendly.  

We get out there midmorning, come up for lunch, and go back until 5 or 6.  One night this trip, we stayed out on the beach until 8:30.  We cannot get enough of the beach y'all.  Thomas and I are beach bums at heart, and pretty much everyone in his family loves the beach just as much as us.  

At night we (and by we I mean not me) cooked different, easy meals, went looking for geotags (anyone else heard of this before), made icecream runs, had cornhold tournaments, went to the sound to go fishing and played pictionary.

Relaxation at it's finest y'all.  

And yet when we came back Sunday T and I were exhausted.  I'm pretty sure that had something to do with the cutest niece and nephews that joined us on said trip.  But they're cute, so its okay.  

And now for the pictures...

DDT [june.28]

Welcome to a new week of Delicious Dish Tuesday, where we share our recipes and ask you to share YOUR awesome recipes with us!  Last week we had some delicious looking recipes shared, I love finding all these new recipes to add to my "to-do" list.  This past week my favorite recipe was shared by Ashley @ A Cute Angle.


Making Our House a Home: Bathroom Update

The first time Thomas brought me to his late grandparents house (currently our house) the one thing I knew had to change was the paint color in most of the rooms.  Especially this mustard yellow.  I just can't.

Now that we're almost 10 months in, Thomas and I have made some legit progress on our 1940's house, and it definitely feels like home.  I'm loving adding personalized touches, and decorating each room.  While most of the rooms are not finished and I'm not ready to share yet, our bathroom is.

Our house has one bathroom.  Yes.  You read that right.  One bathroom.  And it's pretty small, so decorating it was relatively easy, as we just kept it simple.

First things first?  A new paint job.  Painting was the first thing we did (even before I moved in) because it was easier without all the furniture in the way.  

Next we switched out the light fixture, added a cute striped shower curtain and bathroom rug.  Oh and did I mention the bathroom didn't even have anything to hold the toilet paper or a hand towel?  So those were installed quickly.  I picked up a floor cabinet for extra storage to go over the toilet (similar here).  Add in some fake flowers, some Etsy prints and I've called it a good thing.  



Paint Color : Valspar Polished Silver (Home Depot matched it for us)

Wash Brush Floss Flush Print

Bobby Pins Print

Frames (Walmart for $3)

Floor Cabinet (similar)

Bathroom Light Fixture

Shower Curtain

Bath Rug

Hallway Light Fixture

I honestly wouldn't mind replacing the cabinet above the toilet, just because it ended up being shorter than I expected, and this summer I need to do a real good cleaning on the panneling (or possibly a new painting job?), and repaint the trim.

And I'm thinking something needs to happen with the window/blinds situation.  Bamboo shades?  A fabric roman shade?  Help me.

I'm hoping to get those tasks done this Summer and move on to our dining room.  And in the mean time don't miss out on the sneak peeks on snapchat (mary_timmerman).

Do you enjoy redecorating the rooms in your house?  Have any suggestions for our bathroom?  Aren't those Etsy prints the cutest?

Head Over Heels, Again...

Ahhh Summer break.  Everything I've been dreaming about for the last 10 months and more.  And now being at the beach with T's family is just the cherry on top, and it's only the third week of break.  

Now that is Summer break I'm on the search for some new c u t e summer clothes.  While I'm still searching for flowy, off-the-shoulder tops I have found once again fantastic jeans for summer.  

You guys, I've mentioned before I am head over heels for distressed jeans and these Harper Distressed Skinny Jeans are just feeding the obsession.  Although I'd describe them more as a boyfriend jean than a skinny jean (as you can see in the picture).  Right now you can get them at TOBI and first time customers get 50% off your their order, making these jeans $21...ummmm totally more than worth it!
