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)

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!

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

4.17.14 | Pinspiration

Here are a few things I am pinning these days…


I can’t get enough of stripes these days.  I love these stripes with shorts.


At some point I want to replace my living room furniture (my current couches are only 13 years old..but who is counting). I love this sectional. Oh and the lamp.


Our basement project is moving at a snail’s pace.  But I love the idea off all this storage for the basement with the TV on the wall.


I am still messing around with my shorter hair – trying to get use to styling it short. I love the look of her curls.  With the summer humidity around the corner, curls will be my only look.



Remember that studio I am dreaming about…well put this image in the studio dream file.



I am always looking for cute decorating ideas for my porch. I love that little yellow table!



I love stars… I don’t know if I love wallpaper. But maybe if it had stars on it! Maybe that isn’t wallpaper but painted?  I do like the stars…



Along with a cool studio, can I get a little cabin by a lake?  That would be awesome.



I love this mantel and the clock…and all the white.


I can’t wait for consistent warm weather so we can green things up around here. I would love to get some large planters and fill them full of greens!
