4.24.14 | Pinspiration

It’s funny to go back and look at collection of your pins or boards after you have been pinning for a while.  For me, I start to see themes.  Colors I really like, styles, what I am drawn to.  Sometimes I don’t even notice that the same color, for example, is in everything I pin.   That’s exactly what I found when pulling the following images from my Pinterest boards. Gray and white over and over again.


I love this porch!  At some point I would like to add some extras design details to my porch….



I love the little shelf, the lamp, the stars, the couch, the pillows. Yup, I love everything about this little corner.



Cute polka dot shorts, yes please!




This would be so cute on my Zooey, yes?





I am still keeping my eye out for a sectional couch that I like. I am liking this one!


What have you been pinning? I love finding new people to follow on Pinterest. Leave a link to your Pinterest boards in the comments and I will follow you! You can find me here.

4.18.14 | Happy Friday


(image above via Pinterest

Happy Friday!  Good Friday too!  Another week has come and gone.  This week has been spring break for the boys.  So no school for them!  Dimitri and I still have had work – so the boys have been spring breaking it at Grandma and Papa’s during the work day.  Too bad the weather hasn’t been that great for them.  Oh don’t worry, they have had lots of fun!  I however, have still been dreaming of a beach vacation.

Here are some photos I took along the way this week via my iPhone.

Did you know that according to my desk calendar it’s still February? Which might explain the snow we had. This week I attempted to get caught up and at least into the correct month.  (sigh)


Our dinner guest, Mr. Caterpillar

I guess I was jealous of all of Zooey’s new shoes! So I got some for myself. They are from Keen and I love them. Keen Women’s Cortona Ballet  FlatDimitri says I hit my cute shoe quota for the season #keenshoes

Soup, salad, and bread sticks at Olive Garden is all fun and games until someone (me) loses their sunglasses!
Soup, salad and bread sticks lunch #yesplease but then I lost my sunglasses #bummer

Sugar the Dog may have slowed down a bit – but she will do about anything for food.Give me food #gooddog

Ethan loves Lucy. Lucy loves Ethan.

Out and about with Papa…Owen took some photos with Papa’s iPhone during their adventure.Out and about with Papa today. Owen took a selfie #I wenchristopherHi @rcoacher ! Photo by #owenchristopher

So I purchased these sunglasses as possible replacements. No one seems to like them. I might need to try again.I am not so sure about my replacement sunglasses. I lost mine old ones yesterday at lunch

Watching TV and playing. I like how the pets get the furniture and the people are sitting on the floor.Right now #bostinelosbros

Bedtime stories❤️❤️❤️ #daddysgirl #missz @dimitri_bostinelos

Owen had his first baseball practice of the season this week! So get ready for baseball pictures around the blog. You have been warned!First baseball practice of the season! #owenchristopher
