Outdoor Firepit

20130701-162805.jpg

I had always wanted a firepit, but I did not want the hassle and expense of installing one. My sister has a fabulous built in one. I am so jealous.

I did not realize there were other options until three years ago.

I found: This LP Granite Firepit. I bought mine from Walmart of all places. I paid $500, but it is currently on sale for $450. It runs on propane tanks. The tanks you use in your gas grill. It is wonderful. We have had it for three years and have had no problems. They also carry a newer, prettier, more expensive version that was not available at the time we purchased.

Easy. Convenient. And I like that we can turn it off and just slide our tired selves back inside.

We use ours strictly for s’mores. We use it all summer. The kids love it.

I am weird. I do not like s’mores. I just like the toasty marshmallows (not as toasty as in the pic. That was a sad reject).

Do you have a firepit? And, more importantly, how do you feel about s’mores?

    • I will definitely have to check it out next time Bunco at your house! I am glad I am not the only one who just enjoys the marshmallow. I cannot get behind mixing it with chocolate. I also did not try a s’more until I was in my thirties, which explains why I do not have a taste for it. : )

      I cannot wait to see you again! I hope you have a wonderful day! Thank you SO much for commenting!

  1. We have a fireplace out back, which my husband built. I am not a Smores fan either, mainly because I’m gluten free (I suppose I could just buy the gluten free graham crackers). Your backyard looks beautiful! Love the pillows. 🙂

    • Thanks Lorraine! Lucky girl with the talented husband! He can cook and build! I remember that yummy looking meal he made for you on Mother’s Day. It looked delicious! : )

      How are the gluten free crackers?

      The white pillows I just purchased from West Elm in April. They were a great sale price. They are still on sale, but are more now. ? I do not know why.

      Thank you so much for commenting! Have a great evening!

  2. I am a hard core s’more lover but the marshmallow is the best part. Try substituting butter cookies or chess men cookies for the graham crackers. I see Ollie likes the pit too. Is he feeling better? My bully suffers from allergies sometimes also.

    • I bet I would like butter cookies better! Yum! I will have to try that! Thank you.

      Ollie had a really rough week last week with his allergies. We saw blood on the floor and it was everywhere. It turns out h was chewing his paws. He scrapes his feet clomping around. We treated it. He is much, much better now. But I was worried. Thank you so much for asking! How do you treat your bullies allergies?

      Thank you for responding! I really appreciate it! Have a wonderful evening!
