Good morning. Hopefully you are enjoying a nice long weekend. The kids are thrilled to have today off from school and took advantage of sleeping in. One has hockey practice later and one is headed out on a hike while I try to get some things done around the house. As per usual, I have started way too many projects and need to focus. Please tell me you do the same thing. It’s definitely my fatal flaw when it comes to all things design. In any event, welcome to the Monday morning wrap up.
If you have been following along, you know that we are working hard to give our bathroom a refresh without tearing anything out. My husband removed the glass from these doors and I will be adding a fluted detail to them. That way we don’t see all of our bathroom products and mess on a daily basis. Hoping this turns out like I see it in my head. To be continued!
*Our striped drapery panels are from here. The color is Indigo but they read charcoal gray.
When we first moved to Tennessee, I was so worried about the winter months and things looking so brown and dull. Don’t get me wrong. . . winter can be tough but these bare trees are so artistic and beautiful. It’s like an ever changing art print through these windows and I love it. Plus the anticipation of green trees come Spring is exciting.
These two have such a special bond. I love watching them hang out and our chess board has been used almost daily since we bought it. And I have to say these barstools get five stars from me. Incredibly comfortable and loved by everyone.
DAY AT VANDERBILT
This past weekend, Vanderbilt University hosted the State championship for indoor Track and Field. It was a gorgeous day and really fun to watch some of the events. If you are ever in the area, it’s a really great spot to visit.
LIFE IS MESSY
This book was given to me a while back and I never read it. I opened it this weekend, and while I just started it, I love it. It’s a deep dive into how all of life is messy. It’s never the perfect road you think it may be but it’s how you handle the twists and turns that matter. I never expected to lose both my dad and brother and walk the Alzheimer’s journey with my mom for ten years. It’s been a journey of learning to cherish and embrace life amidst the unexpected realities.
FAST (AND CLEAN) FOOD AT HOME
I love when my husband makes his burgers and fries. Beyond good. He has perfected these homemade fries and I am trying to get home to write down the recipe to share. And my go-to burger includes arugula, blue cheese, red onion and avocado. So good, my friends.
BEAUTIES ON SALE
Run, don’t walk. I finally bought these for myself because they are on sale. The square version of these is now $63 for a set of 2. Excited for them to arrive and most likely go in our music room. If you missed Saturday Shopping, there are some great Presidents’ Day deals happening.
And with that, I am off to make some sense out of the piles that have accumulated around here and attempt to make a to-do list for these unfinished projects. Thank you for stopping by. Have a wonderful day.
May I ask about the handbag beside you in the book picture?
I’ve read Life is Messy, we were gifted it at Church. Some seasons of life are really difficult to navigate. We’ll never be the same after them, but can be changed for the better because of them.
I love everything, but especially the gray vase with the branches. Are they real? If fake, can you share the link for both?
