Five on my Mind

This summer has been all about less projects and more organizing and basically just getting my life to where it’s a little bit easier.  One of the items on the to do list was to get my photos off my phone.  I take lots of photos of pretty things I see or reminders of what I want to do or need to get done.

I’ve gone through my phone recently and thought I’d erase what I didn’t need and post some of the things I want to remember.

1.  Keep my eye on the lookout for some pretty tiles so that I can use them as coasters outside while entertaining.

2.   This outfit pretty much sums up my style.  Love a basic white shirt, a denim jacket that is always in style if you ask me and always, always, always, stripes, a touch of green and most definitely leopard!

3.  I admit I’m not a naturally happy person it’s something I have to remind myself to do and to be.  I like this reminder!

Happy People


4.   I have a slight obsession with pillows and coffee table styling.  Amber from Amber Interiors rocks them both.!

5.  I think success has alot to do with the happy people don’t you?


Does anyone else take a billion pictures on their phone?  What do you do with them all?

I know I’m not the only one there’s been a … Continue reading

Happy Birthday Cooper!

Ok it’s not really Cooper’s birthday but he is officially a year and a half years old and in baby time that’s a big deal!  (At least for me!) I hope you don’t mind the non-design related post but my family and friends read my blog and they probably actually like the Cooper updates more than the house updates! Time … Continue reading

I’ll Totally Admit It…I’m A Tease in the Bedroom!

Now that I have your attention, I’m going to admit total failure with my One Room Challenge.  I’ve bought some things for the bedroom to get going on it but honestly I’m just not feeling it and I’ve been having a heck of a time coming up with a complete design plan.  I was afraid if I rushed through it … Continue reading
