This week, we're in beautiful Mount Pleasant, South Carolina visiting my parents. 
Mount Pleasant is about 15 miles from Charleston, and they live in 
a gated community in an area called Dunes West. 
Here's their house.  Isn't it so pretty?
My Dad is a ROCK STAR with landscaping.  
Their house sits on about an acre of land, and it's seriously stunning.  
Every time he comes to Virginia, he kindly hits up the Home Depot and 
plants a few things, so our yard isn't a complete disgrace. 
{Whether we keep said plants alive is another story, of course.}
His plants, on the other hand...
Could you die over these window boxes?!  
This almost makes me want to plant some stuff myself.  ALMOST. ;-)
They painted their front porch ceiling "haint blue," 
and they say it really does keep the bugs away {not sure about ghosts, though.}
They painted their front porch and their back screened-in porch floors in a semi-gloss gray:
While we were there, we did a little of this...
...and a little of that...
And even some of this!  
Come on!  You knew I'd sneak in a little DIY action, didn't you?
I'll be back with more photos of my parents' beautiful house, 
and details on reupholstering my Mom's dining chairs.
In the meantime, thanks to Mom and Dad for a great time! 
We love you! xoxo

Your parents home and yard are stunning...in fact that whole neighborhood is gorgeous! I'd take any one of those houses.

Heading to the beach tomorrow with my BFF for several days...sun, surf, food & shopping...what more can a girl ask for?

Hi Aimee-It's Brian next door. I painted my porch ceiling Haint Blue too but I'm not sure it's hainty enough! What color is that? It is what I was going for

Hey Brian! I'll have them check as soon as they get back to SC {probably Tuesday}. And when are you going to let me feature a room in your beautiful house? :-)
