weekly roundup


It's Memorial Day Weekend!  I hope you all have very relaxing plans!  I think we may sneak up to Michigan for a bit and I am totally ok with that.  
Here are my links for the week:

I love, love, love this skirt  and it is 30% off

Here is a Perfect (and one of my favorite) salad for Memorial Day Weekend.  You've got the grill involved, lots of greens, and the perfect light dressing.  So good...

Absolutely love House of Harper's gorgeous summer table setting here.  Really makes me want to start entertaining again.

And don't forget to hit up the Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale.

Here are just a few of my favorite deals from the sale...

Have a safe and wonderful holiday weekend!

So many good outdoor spaces inspiring me.  We recently freshened up our patio space and it made a world of difference.  We love spending time out there now and we never did previously.  It's the last day of school over here and a big furniture delivery for Adam's office is happening today which I am so excited about!  Enjoy this beautiful day! xo,

my favorite blue

Happy Monday everyone!
It's hard to believe tomorrow is the last day of school for my big kids!  This year went extremely fast and they have grown up so much!
So much fun in store this summer and we are so ready for lazy mornings and being outdoors.

This powder room below (and the wallpaper, the fixtures, the hardware) make my heart skip a beat.  My favorite shade of blue.  I just love...
Have a fantastic start to your week! xo

This week seemed like the longest...
We had a baby with croup, a field trip for two of my kiddos, lots of work to do at home and for clients, and a nagging headache that lasted the whole week through.  However, I finished everything I needed to complete and even squeezed a run in each day (which totally kept me sane).  
Stress from busy daily life can creep up so quickly and it is so easy to become overwhelmed.  I've learned over time that it's not about how heavy the load is, but how we carry it.  So cheers to the weekend, I hope you enjoy!

Make Today Amazing

So many good things happening.
  My new niece will be arriving today (hopefully) on her grandmother's birthday.  
How special is that?!  Our family is so excited.  
  The weather has been amazing and it makes me so happy.  I just love spending time outdoors and in the garden.  This time of year everything is so pretty.
I hope you have a wonderful Wednesday.

Modern Vintage Rugs

I absolutely love the look of vintage rugs but sometimes the price tag doesn't fit into the budget.  Luckily there are plenty of modern- vintage rugs out there and so many to choose from with reasonable prices.  Here are a few of my favorites...

Yes, this one above is from Target.  It is sooo pretty!

I just love the blues and grays here...

This one is a great neutral

The perfect vintage looking gray rug

And this one is just stunning...

neutral spaces


I hope you all had a relaxing Mother's Day.  I spent the day with my husband and babies planting flowers and soaking in the beautiful weather.  My sister hosted a lovely Mother's Day dinner and then I crawled in bed so early and slept so hard.  It was perfect.  Today I am chaperoning a field trip with my kindergartener and first grader to the zoo.  
Have a happy Monday!

weekly roundup

Loving these task lamps and their price.  I just ordered this one for Wells' room and this one for Adam's office.

I am totally head over heels for this one of a kind runner
great price for a 9 footer.  

My good friend that shares all of the awesome recipe really needs to start a food blog, she shared 
this one with me and it was amazing.  I mean, sooo good...

Love, love, love the remake of this song, totally brings back middle school memories

In love with this wallpaper, and even more excited Lulie Wallace is at Anthro now

I am hoping to catch up on some rest this weekend but probably not going to happen.  A girl can dream right?  Have a fantastic weekend and Mother's Day!

Design Trend: Leather Throw Pillows

I love trends but I also tend to shy away from them.  However, I am definitely into leather throw pillows lately and here is why... We have seen the leather sofas and chairs quite a bit so it is refreshing to see accessories and accents of leather.  I love the contrast a leather throw pillow gives against a neutral or white sofa or even on a bed.  These are also such a great option for those who just don't want to give into the leather sofa idea.  Masculine but still chic and totally ok to mix with a watercolor floral or patterned throw pillow.
