Well it’s been a hot minute since I wrote one of these posts but once again I’m trying to bring them back and be more consistent with them. It’s a fun way to wrap up the week and share some of my favorite random things from around the web and update you with what’s going on.
Sometimes I forget that I have people who only subscribe to my blog through email and don’t follow me on social media so forgive me for being absent lately! I took the kiddos to Costa Rica for two weeks on vacation and we had the best time! Dan’s schedule is crazy right now and he’s gone a lot so I thought I’d make some of that time go faster by packing up and heading someplace warm.
My family has a home in Costa Rica and my parents spend 3 months of the winter there so we spent 2 weeks with them soaking up the sun and enjoying a slower pace of life. This was the kids first time there and first trip out of the country and they both did so well. They loved every minute of it and I can’t wait to take them back again soon.
So now we’re back and I’m still trying to play catch up from being away for so long. But it was totally worth it.
If you don’t follow me on instagram then you probably don’t know that our new island countertop FINALLY arrived. I talked about it back in my Budget Kitchen Makeover post a loooong time ago. The process just took quite a bit longer than expected but it’s here and it’s gorgeous and we’ll hopefully be installing it soon!
A little update on our half bath – the tile is in, I’m just waiting on my FIL to install the tile. He’s got some big jobs keeping him busy at work right now so when things slow down a bit for him he’ll be able to get that going for us. Hoping it’s soon!
My next project I want to work on is sprucing up our little bar area in our dining room. I never decorated it too much after the One Room Challenge reveal and have kind of neglected it since. I’ve always struggled with what to put on the walls so I’m currently trying to figure that out. I’m drawing some major inspo from the above photo taken by Monica Wang though.
FAVS FROM THE WEEK
I bought this All Natural Honey Simple Syrup to add to our bar cart. Pretty & functional = a win win.
With spring officially here (even though it doesn’t feel like it) I’ve been adding a few things to my wardrobe like this cute Camo Sweat Dress. Because I hardly ever wear real clothes ha.
So much encouragement from this quote I found on Pinterest.
Serena and Lily is having a huge sale on their site until the 25th. 20% using code INSPO.
We have some new neighbors who moved in across the street so I thought I’d try out this Brown Butter and Toffee Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe to bring them. I might have to keep a few 😉
Dan’s home opener is this weekend and it looks like we’ll have some nice weather for it so you can find us at the ballpark! Hope you all have a great weekend!
