Fancy This Fridays 76 – InstaFriday

Happy Friday lovelies!!!
Time for another edition of Fancy This Fridays and while we’re at it, another edition of Insta-Friday!

It’s been HOT here in Arizona this week. Phoenix has been over 100 degrees which means somewhere in the 90s for us all week long! Hubs and I debated and debated and finally decided to purchase an above ground pool!!!

It had to be done. It’s just too hot not to. At least that’s our reasoning. haha.
So, since it was Mother’s Day weekend and my mom was here visiting she, Kayli and I went over to Wal-Mart and made the big purchase!

Can I just say if you’re going to my local Wal-Mart and need to buy something large… Take a team with you.
It was an act of congress to find someone to help us get that thing off the shelf and then into my Nitro!

The next day the hubs had to work so Kayli and I set it up! We’re not ashamed of our awesome tarp holders… You know, a lawn chair, a broom, a dump truck. Hey, it worked!

We felt so hardcore getting it all set up by ourselves.

Then we just had to wait while it filled up!

So bummer alert… The NEXT day we discovered it had a leak. :( We (Kayli, I had to go to work) called customer service and we’ve got a new liner on its way! Stinks we have to wait for it, but that’s too much money to spend for it to be less than awesome!!

I was for real stressed out about it. SO much so Nate and Kayli thought I was being silly… But little things like that really get to me. Random Kassi fact of the day.

SO, what have you been up to this last week? We wanna see!

Fancy This Fridays Rules:

1. Please link directly to the project post on your blog.
Not the blog itself.
2. Please link only your OWN posts.
We prefer to see what YOU have been up to… not someone random.
3. Please grab a button and display it somewhere on your blog. On your sidebar, on your posts, on your linky party page. We aren’t picky!
4. We would LOVE if you would comment on at least one other link.
Just pop over and say “Hello, coming by from Truly Lovely”, or something more clever… You know. 😉

Thanks for linking lovelies! Have a great weekend!!!

By the way, our May Group Giveaway ends at midnight on Sunday! So get those entries in! :)



  1. Such a bummer that it was leaking, but at least they’re bringing a new liner!! Smart lady, buying a pool – I’m sure it’ll pay for itself pretty quickly, especially with weather that hot!

    • Kassi @ Truly Lovely says:

      Yeah, I am really hoping we can get it all fixed up right because it will be so NICE to have this summer! :)

  2. Thank you for hosting!

  3. Yeah, I think a pool was definitely in order! BTW I had a Walmart experience as well, that almost got my sister kicked out of Walmart LOL. Who knew you could not test ride the bikes in Walmart? My kids bought me a bike for Mothers Day, and apparently no test driving!

    • Kassi @ Truly Lovely says:

      They’re strict there I guess huh… Not strict enough to have anyone around when I needed help the other day though… Sheesh. NICE Mother’s Day gift by the way!

  4. This summer is going to be so hot, good thing you got a pool. (Sorry about the leaking part!)
    Have a great weekend!

  5. Katherine says:

    Wow, I’m so jealous of the pool! Not jealous of the heat though. I hope you get your liner quick so you guys can enjoy the pool!!

    • Kassi @ Truly Lovely says:

      Us too!!! :) It is NINETY FOUR degrees here today! Just miserable!

  6. MAN! That totally stinks. I am JUST the same way. I get so “bent out of shape” as my dad calls it when things just can’t go the way they SHOULD! It drives me nuts. Both that Murphy’s Law is real and that I get so upset over it!!

    • Kassi @ Truly Lovely says:

      Right?! Boo…. Yep, I’m the same way. Wish I was more laid back about things like that, but I’m not… So that’s how it goes. haha.

  7. So I’m a little to late to enter this time but wanted your button on my site to remind me for next week and it’s not exactly working… maybe you can figure out what’s wrong.

    • Kassi @ Truly Lovely says:

      Hey Kendra! Thanks for the heads up! I’m working on getting it fixed… For some reason it’s not pulling the image!
