Hanging Around

The Mr. has been wanting a hammock for a while now. I have had my eye on an L.L. Bean one, but when you add the stand and shipping costs, it had a price tag of over $400 and I just couldn’t pull the trigger. As luck would have it, a couple of weeks ago when the Mr. took his mom to Christmas Tree Shoppe (not his favorite place to go, but he’s a good son!), he found one with a stand for only $99! After we set it up and tried it out, Nola decided she would like to test it too.

  1. Adorable! I like that the weave on the hammock is so tight– the hammock my family had when I was growing up had such a loose weave that often it would leave a fishnet-looking pattern on any bare skin when you got up.

  2. Nola looks like she is really enjoying her new hammock. Oddly enough, we were just talking about getting a hammock on Saturday and the hubby said Ray would probably want to be in it with me the entire time. I didn’t think so, but seeing how much Nola likes it makes me rethink…
