Weekend Recap

Last weekend I was in NYC, and when I arrived home Paul unloaded a whole list of projects that he had thought about while I was gone. This was shocking for me, seeing as he usually is the one putting the parking breaks on all of my project ideas, but I love projects so I was very welcome to them!

Modern Farmhouse Design

I have been recently loving the modern farmhouse look filled with clean lines, shiplap, white walls, and industrial pendants. I owe this new found love to designers like Black Bear Design, Studio McGee, and of course JoJo Gaines. My personal style is a little more coastal than the typical modern farmhouse design, but I'm hoping to add some of these features in some of my future home projects, especially in our basement. I have rounded up some of my favorite modern farmhouse designs for your eyes to feast on. Enjoy!

Office Chandelier & Design Board

Today I’m sharing the one space in our house where I have free reigns when it comes to designing, my home office. Now don’t get me wrong, the rest of the house very much reflects my style, but this is the one space that Paul gets no say, as well as since it’s an office I can have fun with it and explore a little beyond my normal style. After all, I spend the majority of my day in here while I work my full-time Marketing job, so it’s important to me that I have a bright and light functional space that also makes me excited to work. Since last sharing my home office, I have shifted the furniture around and have added a new chandelier so come check it out!

New Year Activewear

As I mentioned in my blog post on Monday, this year my husband and I have joined a YMCA to get in shape and for me to train for a half marathon and sprint triathlon and him train for a Spartan race. Since we joined the gym, I thought it was the perfect excuse to get some new activewear because cute new gym clothes always give me a little extra motivation.  Here are some of the items I’ve gotten and others I have my eye on in case you too are feeling the whole “get in shape for the new year” thing. On the list includes leggings that keep you warm on the way to the gym while also being comfortable while working out to tops and bras that are breathable and give you different levels of support. Also best part, most of these items are currently on sale, including my all time favorite running shoes that are currently 50% off (see #5)!

2016 Goals and Projects

Happy New Years everyone and welcome to 2016!! I thought that it would be appropriate for the first blog post of the year to be about my goals this upcoming year, because one way or another you will hear more about them on the blog throughout the year.

HOME PROJECTS: I have a long list of goals that I want to achieve in our home this year, but realistically we most likely won’t be able to do all of them. Out of the list, though, the home projects that will be happening this year involve projects in the kitchen, basement, master bathroom, and our deck.  The kitchen project actually began last week, and have since changed from our original plan that I blogged about awhile back so stay tuned for details later this week about we are doing in the space. Below is an image of what our kitchen looked like in case you forgot.
