Peace, love, sandy feet

Hello Wednesday! We are still enjoying our summer as much as ever! We went for a boat ride last night and the water was like glass. We rode out to the lighthouse in the photo and watched the ferry boat come in from Wisconsin. The kids loved it! Looking forward to another perfect day at the beach!!

I'm in Michigan with the kiddos patiently awaiting their daddy's arrival. ETA still unknown. We are enjoying ourselves anyhow and beaching it everyday. This place is beach house heaven! There are some pretty amazing places around here that I will have to share with you this week! Right now I am enjoying a moment of peace and quiet as Finley has gone to morning activities and little stinker Henry is napping. I say little stinker because he woke me up at 5 a.m.

Annie's place

Ok now I must show you where I spent my weekend in chicago. My dear dear friend Annie and her fiancé Brian just bought this amazing apartment in chicago. Walking in, I instantly felt like I was in restoration hardware. It's amazing! They are in the process of finishing up painting so ignore any painters tape you may see. The awesome bar made kitchen island/cabinets was originally from Scotland and it gives their place so much character. I just loved their unique home and wanted to share with you all!!

Black and white closet

My closet in a nutshell... Organized one day, a complete mess the next... Well, I've been trying to work on this part of my life because I've realized how great I feel when my home is organized. And after walking into my brother in laws color coordinated walk in I have realized I need to get to work on my own. He put me to shame!! So I'm starting with these shelves and if anyone has any tips or pointers I will gladly take them. My thought is to merchandise the closet as if it were a store. Think j.crew... By the way did anyone see my beach hat? I recently had it monogrammed and it's currently my obsession! www.

Tonight I made pillows from a tutorial I found on pinterest. And they turned out quite well if I must say so...
I ordered the fabric from and happened to have several old pillow forms. I'm working on my living room which has a stone fireplace surrounded by built ins which I think I will paint. (Right now they are white). A black and white striped rug from crate and barrel and gray velvet sectional. Next on my list includes things for my walls and curtains!! I'll keep you up to date!!
Ps did anyone hear emily on the bachelorette say she was "going to go west Virginia backwoods hood rat on his ass"??? Love my guilty pleasure!!!
