At Home // February 2018

Hi All & Happy Sunday!
I thought it would be fun to share some snaps from my home. I've shared a few of the rooms before but I don't think I've ever shown pictures of the dining room. If you're wondering no we didn't choose that green color, it was that way when we moved in, we just haven't gotten around to painting it! The other photographs are from my office/closet space. If you have any questions about where items are from just let me know! 

The dining room hasn't been clean since before THANKSGIVING- not even kidding. We've had gift wrap, cookie platters, and decorations scattered about. This weekend I decided this room needed to get back into order and I'm so happy it's finally clean! I like to have breakfast in here on the weekends because it's so Sunny. I've had to find decor items that will match this oh so lovely green wall color and I think these floral place mats are perfect- they have me dreaming of warm spring days! 

My office may look clean right now but I can promise you it's not always that clean, 95% of the time there are clothes in a pile on the furry stool and my makeup is scattered all over the vanity. I spend a lot of time in this room so I love how much natural light it has. It's a very bright happy space that I truly enjoy being in. It's nice to have a spot that's girly and all mine! 

What's your favorite room in your home?

Thursday Thoughts

Happy Thursday!
 I feel like this week has been so crazy! I've been going to bed so much later than usual because I've had so much to do every day! I've been trying to keep to my workout routine regardless of all the things I've had going on which seems to be helping me keep my sanity. I definitely suggest trying to stick to your normal routines as much as possible as it helps to keep your life somewhat in order.

Things I did this week //

* Valentines Day! I'm not sure anyone is more excited for Valentine's day than First Graders. It was a crazy few days leading up to Valentines as the kids were just SO excited. I received so many sweet cards it made the day extra special. As I mentioned before Kyle & I keep it pretty simple for Valentine's Day. This year Kyle prepared bacon wrapped filet, stuffed salmon, asparagus, wild rice, AND chocolate cake! So delicious & I love getting to have a quiet night at home. We went out one year for Valentines Day and it was CRAZY! The service was terrible the food took forever and it was so noisy- I learned my lesson not to go out on this holiday!

* Completed ALL of my laundry!! Which was a goal of mine last weekend so I'm happy to report it is all done, it did take a while though! Does anyone else greatly dislike having to put clothes away!? I avoid it at all costs.

* Increased my speed on the treadmill, which you're probably thinking 'who cares', but for me, this was a big step. When I started working out back in December I was so out of breath on the treadmill and could barely fast walk without becoming fatigued. Now I have so much energy on the treadmill and I'm able to run without feeling out of breath or weak. Push through the difficult phase of working out- I promise it gets better! I'm to the point now where I enjoy working out every day and am bummed if I miss a day. 

Things I'm doing this weekend // 

* Saturday Mani - I'm thinking I want a nice nude color but I'm worried it will make my hands look even paler! I always like to find a fun design or color on Pinterest prior to going. Let me know what your favorite nail colors are!

* Baby Shower- I can't believe I'm at the age where I'm attending baby showers! I feel old! One of my coworker's daughters is having a baby this spring and her shower is on Saturday. I got the most adorable little baby clothes for a gift and these sweet little velvet shoes. Baby girl clothes are seriously the cutest! I had a hard time not buying the whole store. 

* Beginning to pack for our vacation! Kyle and I leave next weekend for our trip so I need to get packing! I'm freaking out a little bit about all of the illnesses going around and the germs at the airport! How do you stay healthy while traveling!? I'd love to hear any tips!

What are your plans this weekend!?

Spring Wishlist

We had some beautiful weather a few weekends ago here in Vermont, high 40's and sunny! It had me dreaming of Spring days so I thought I'd put together a post sharing some of the items that are on my Spring wishlist! These are also great items if you're headed on a vacation anytime soon! Kyle & I are going on a trip in a few weeks but the weather where we are headed unfortunately doesn't warrant espadrilles and a straw tote.

As you can tell I'm loving espadrilles- they're so comfortable and the perfect Spring shoe! I'm also hoping to add some more color into my wardrobe this spring as I tend to stick to more neutral and muted tones.To shop any of these items just click the product images at the bottom of the post!

What products are you wanting for spring?
