Memorial Day and More...

Time for a good ole' blog catch up:

A few weeks back we spent an evening on Goldbug celebrating my Aunt who recently passed away.  It was a beautiful occasion to remember her life with joy and love:

This fountain is on the ground's of my mom's work:
 We had a happy hour at Gene's last weekend, where it all began...
A playdate with our besties to kickoff Memorial Day Weekend:
Another (gasp!) date night for appetizers at Amen Street.
We had two family cookouts over the dreary holiday weekend, we are SO HAPPY the sun is out today!!

Placemat Pillow

Happy Monday!
 I wanted to share a super quick DIY that I finished today during EB's naptime.
I found these cute lemon placemats at the Dollar Tree.  I carefully cut a slit in the side, filled with pillow stuffing (purchased 50% off at Michael's), and sewed the slit back up.
Nice and easy $5 project.

Mother's Day 2018

Hi, Happy Friday!
I hope that everyone had a fantastic Mother's Day weekend.
We spent time with lots of family starting Saturday with a Surf and Turf cookout at home.  Low quality photo...but the meal was delicious!

And then more family fun on Sunday. 
I love being a mom more than I could have dreamed!
I hope your motherhood dreams, whatever they may be, come true as well.

House Tour: Living Room

Hello out there!  Today I'll share some snaps from our Living Room! 
I'd say our living room is a work in progress.  It is truly treated as a "formal" living room, in that we don't spend much time there unless entertaining.  The majority of our time is spent in our family room, or den.  But never the less, I've enjoyed putting a cozy/comfortable spin on this room.  After all, it's the first room you see when you walk in our front door.  
This first photo was actually taken from our doormat:
Through the single french door is K's office:
Here is the view from K's office, showing a peek of the dining room.
As with so much of my home, it is put together from Estate Sales, Consignment Shops, Auctions, etc.
If you have any specific questions, please ask.  
Oh! One thing I'll say is our sofas are from Rooms to Go and we are very very happy with them.
Summary:  Oh what a difference paint, curtains, and furnishings make.  I really want to change out the ceiling fan and replace the floors in here.  One day!

Friday Highfive

A very quick Friday Highfive for y'all today.  EB will be up from nap any minute and then we're off to get a tire patched at Gerald's.  TGIF.
We spent the most gorgeous day out on IOP this week.  LOOK AT MY SWEET GIRL!
Date night look.  Check, please! ;)
Playground fun.  This was at the JICP playground after we had a splashpad date with friends.  Right after I got EB dried off and changed, she bolted straight back into the splash zone.  Wouldn't you know the stars aligned, and the large bucket that tips once it's filled did so right as she was zipping by.  
We are LOVING our time spent in the backyard.  Sundays are for afternoon cookouts...come on over! 
First trip to the pool this week:
