neutral nursery








This time around our little nursery is going for a new look.  This is weird for me because I am a color girl! I love to accent with bright colors and patterns.  But this little nursery is going to be neutral, sophisticated, and beautiful.  I can't wait to bring in textures to warm it up.  All of these rooms above are adorable and have inspired my soon to be nursery.  
Which reminds me that I need to get working on it...

Yummy salads





While browsing Pinterest...
I found this salad and it looks amazing! 
 Recipe found here.
I am anxious to try it even though it calls for fish oil which terrifies me for some reason.  It just doesn't sound right but maybe it makes the salad?  I am going to try it out this weekend!

Also found this one which looks so summery and yummy!  And the blog it is from is called Patty's Food and she beautifully photographs every meal!

I am so over the heavy heart warming meals right now.  I want yummy salads and chocolate chip cookies!

rainy day




Another rainy day???  My husband has been busy building fence and sandbagging with his brother and the rest of the crew this week in hopes that we don't lose a major amount of farmland due to all of this crazy rain!  I just keep hoping for a "normal" year but those are few and far between in the farm world.
I am also worried about my garden!  I don't want what I have planted to rot!  So I am staying hopeful that it will all work out!  
The good news is that I am now in my second trimester and feeling more and more like a normal person...
Except that normal people do not eat ice cream EVERY night after dinner! oops...

weekend review...

 Remember my post on my mudroom inspiration?
Well we started that project this weekend!
Finley helped out!
We started by tearing down the existing mudroom.







and then painted the walls white...
I was a little nervous about this genius idea of Adam's to paint it white.
I mean it is a mudroom and it does get dirty...


But after the room looked a lot larger, so that is good!
Unfortunately we are stuck here.  The new washer arrived yesterday and we are unable to stack the existing dryer with our new washer.  So now we are in the process of deciding whether or not to get a  new dryer??
I vote yes!
In the meantime the kiddos and I started on our garden!
Here is the start of the herbs.
Basil, cilantro, flat leaf parsley, sage, rosemary, chives...
Exciting!

 Strawberries!
Can't wait to eat these straight out of the garden.  
Hopefully these wont attract snakes...

Sweet onions!


We also worked on the front porch.  The floor needed a new coat of paint and a little TLC...
Pretty rockers that were Adam's mama's that we will enjoy so much
 and of course time for flowers!



Flowers in the boxes outside of the crazy mudroom project.
Gardenias and they smell unbelievable!!




Can't wait to have a friend over for wine out here!
after bambino number 3 gets here of course...

pretty florals

Right now I am crazy about florals! 
Maybe because of those Laura Ashley and Liberty of London prints my mother
 use to dress me and my sister in?  
Either way I am glad they have made a comeback for Spring!
Even more exciting is that Gap has several maternity styles in floral prints!




If you want to get the look...


this adorable floral dress can be found here

LOVE these shoes that would look great with jeans and a vibrant top


Obsessing over this swim suit from here

This dress here can also be found in a maternity style!!!
Happy Spring!
