{Weekend Dreaming} Gorgeous Lake House

If I lived here…I would invite you all over for a girls’ weekend lake house party! Girls only.

We would leave all the laptops and cell phones on the other side of the lake so we could enjoy an unplugged weekend!

All of our kids would be taken care of back at home, by family, of course.

We’d sit outside in those chairs late the first night in our jammies and talk, laugh, swap stories and ideas.

In the morning (really late, after we slept in and no one woke anyone up) we’d make coffee and scones and then go out in boats to gently (no one would get sweaty) row around the lake.

We’d stop for lunch at a charming bistro and then spend the afternoon browsing on a lovely little street of quaint shops.

We would suddenly realize we were a little sad that we weren’t able to Instagram or FB about all the fun we were having since it was an unplugged weekend and we didn’t have phones, so we’d ask someone on the street to take our picture and text it to us for later.  Crisis averted.

Then we’d return to the lake house at dusk, make ourselves some fruity drinks and take a nighttime swim in the indoor pool.

Because I dream it must have a pool in that glorious house.

We’d end the day all in our cozy yoga pants, making snacks and watching chick flicks.

By the time the weekend was over, we’d be BFF’s.

Forever more, every time we’d visit each other online, we’d fondly remember our weekend with all of us hanging out at the lake house.

The End. You know? I really like this dream.

What if YOU lived here?
{remember, don’t burst our bubble….this is just for FUN, not real life}

      Laney, I’d be up early with you, we’ll make an early batch of coffee, drink it by the lake side, maybe I would kayak around the lake for an hour, and later make the scones for the other girls, I don’t get hungry that early anyways! The plans for the rest of the day sound absolutely PERFECT!! I know we all agreed that this is just a fantasy, but why can’t it be real?

    If I lived there, I would never want to leave. That is probably one of the greatest homes I’ve ever seen.
    My new dream home certainly. Many thanks for sharing!

    I would have a big barbecue and invite all of our family and friends to come and visit our dream home. And we would have bouncy houses, a band, and maybe even a giant outdoor movie screen for after dark.

    I think I might have to wake up early in that house just so I wouldn’t miss any of the glorious sunshine that I imagine streaming through every window! Living in the PNW, I just wish for sunshine more than anything.

    And I might want to sleep on the lawn, just so I could see the stars as I drifted off to sleep, listening to giggles of happy women!

      Oh YES we could sleep out on the lawn! That would be wonderful. It would be a perfectly clear and comfortable night for sleeping outside, in my dreams. :-) And no bugs.

    This house looks amazingly beautiful. I don’t think your plan can be improved upon! It’s a pretty dreamy house, that’s for sure.

    Sounds like a beautiful day to me! By the time you all are getting up, I’ll be having my 2nd or 3rd cup of coffee on the deck. See you out there….
