After the Falmouth Road Race yesterday, Mal and I invited Jess and her husband Scott back to our house to hang out. Our afternoon and evening included drinks, dinner, and lots and lots of laughs. Seriously. Jess and Scott are hilarious. At one point, Mal and I both agreed our faces actually hurt from laughing so much!
Our evening also included trying out our new fire pit that my friends at Wayfair sent me to review.
Wayfair has all sorts of great fire pits in a variety of shapes, sizes, and styles (there are some seriously funky ones) on their website. Mal and I picked the Fireside Escapes Saturn Steel Fire Pit because of its simple design and smaller size. Our backyard isn’t all that big, so we didn’t want a huge fire pit monstrosity taking up half of our backyard. We also liked the shape and low proximity to the ground, so we could invite friends over and all comfortably sit around it.
Please note the pug in the photo below. He was so sneaky with the kindling.
He’s so darn cute. Obviously, we couldn’t get mad. It’s Murphy’s world…
We hung out by the fire pit for quite awhile, telling stories and chatting about life.
We ended up keeping the “spark guard screen” off the fire pit for the majority of evening—mostly because it made for easy access when we wanted to add more wood.
Plus, the fire wasn’t really sparking at all.
Here’s what the fire pit looks like with the spark guard screen on:
It also makes a great piece of equipment for chasing and trying to trap pugs!
Scott and Murphy had a grand old time running around the yard with the spark guard screen. The two of them had us laughing so hard!
I also really liked that the outside rim of the fire pit stayed cool. I wouldn’t want someone to walk by and burn their leg on it or something like that. And, hey, it’s great for putting up and warming your feet!
