our projects at hand...

Adam is building these beds in our toy room so it can double as a guest room/sleepover room for the kids.
I mean what guest wouldn't want to sleep in the toyroom??
No, actually I am really happy he is doing this because it will give him something to do on the weekends which are normally consumed with football and naps.  Plus the kids will love it, and it is pretty adorable!
And of course I found the photo on
If you haven't already, then download the app.  It could be as addicting as pinterest!

This is Emily Maynard's kitchen in Charlotte.  Yes, she is the adorable new bachelorette this spring.
She's got pretty cute taste from what I have seen. 
I just loved the gold mirror, chandelier, and the subway art on each side.  So this is what we are doing in my sister in law and future brother in laws kitchen.  Early wedding present...  Won't he be excited!? She will, that is for sure!  As soon as we have collected enough subway art pieces I will post a photo to share with you!

And now I must go, for I turned around to find my sweet Finley gulping down the rest of my coffee and creamer...
We may have a long day ahead!

dining decor

Love, love, love each dining area.
If I could combine the elements of each of these rooms
into one it would be simply amazing!
Happy Wednesday everyone!  My sweet peas and I have a full day ahead!

orange accents

Happy Snowstorm Illinois friends!  Finley had school this morning so we were actually out in this mess!
Now we are all cozied up at home and looking forward to night of good t.v.  I am so in love with the little girls bathroom in this set and would love to do something like that at the family beach house!  We happen to have an old quilt rack there for towels as well!  I love repurposing!!
Stay in and stay warm!!!

color combo: black and gold

Well after 4 days of being homebound with sick babies I am definitely ready to bust out of this farmhouse and do something!  This winter has not exactly felt like winter to me and I am ready for the two month flea market hiatus to come to an end... 

Absolutely love the gold and black combo and the very sophisticated yet awesome kitchen above! 
Have a great day!
