Easter Ready

6 Easy Easter Dresses

Flounce Hem Dress (on sale) // Embroidered Drop Wait Dress // Chambry Shirt Dress // Short Sleeve Floral Dress  (similar here, here, & here) // Short Sleeve Minimal Dress (similar here) // Fluttered Blooms Swing Dress

The fact that Easter is only a week away, literally blows my mind. This year is FLYING by! On one hand, I want time to slow down, but on the other (dominant) hand, I am so ready and excited to be pulling out those new spring prints and dresses! I can't get enough of the pretty floral/ pastels this season, and the options available right now seem to be endless. 

This is also Harrison's first Easter that he will actually kind of be able to understand what's going on, so I'm extra excited for it! I've gotten everything together for his first Easter basket (we saved our money last year and skipped the basket since he was not even 4 months old yet).. we got him a toddler soccer ball, a new book, bubbles, and little treats to stuff in some Easter eggs :)

Target Threshold Home

Target Threshold Home

Have you guys seen the new spring Threshold items at Target yet?? SO adorable. I had to make a Target run this afternoon on my lunch break to get milk for the babysitter and got so off track when the bright pink caught my eye. I am absolutely loving the gold accents, bright colors, and bamboo motifs. I seriously have issues shopping there without straying off of my list! I just thought these were too good not to share... happy hump day!

Evolution of Our Living Room

Hi guys! I'm back after taking a couple weeks break to move in (!!!) to our new addition. We are completely done with construction and are now just focusing on filling in the pieces with furniture and accessories. We still have a mile long to-do list but I'm excited to finally share some real progress photos with you! So here is a [condensed] version of the progression of our living room...

Dreaming of Spring...

Spring Shoe

I am so over this snow. And my winter wardrobe. And wearing socks. With highs in the 60's yesterday and the lurking snow storm today, I feel myself falling back into that seasonal depression that tinkers on the brink at the end of every winter season. OK, maybe I'm being a little mellow dramatic, but you feel me right?! 

So in the spirit of spring, because that's the only thing getting me through this weather, here is some inspiration for your footsies. There are so many great options this year and I can't wait to break out a new pair of sandals. Bring on the warmer weather!!

Dining Room Mood Board

Hey ya'll! Wow, I can't believe how fast March snuck up on me!
 So far I've shared with you our master bath mood board, which is coming to life exactly how I imagined it. I'm hoping to share finished pictures with you next week! eeekkkk! We're only waiting on finishing touches now with the mirror and sconces..

I also shared our fireplace inspiration here, which our own fireplace is about 95% finish and I am in LOVE. 

Soo for a lack of "after" pictures, I thought I'd pop in today with a little dining room inspiration for you... 

Dining Room Mood Board

Pre-addition, we didn't have a proper dining room - more like a cramped eat in kitchen. But post-addition we are transforming our old living room into a dining area. We are really excited to finally be trading in our old hand-me-down kitchen table for this new, grown up, and more "us" version. We don't want the dining room to be too formal because this will be our everyday table as well, and most importantly the room needs to be appropriate for a wild toddler to run around in too.  

The room is in dire need of new paint, and I'm in love with BM Seattle Gray (the same color we used in our new bathroom). Still searching for the right dining chairs but I love the stripe details on these - just don't know how well they would hold up with sticky baby fingers :)

Addition [Updates]

Some exciting things have been happening with the addition progress and I am happy to finally share some quick little snippets with you!

The builder dropped off our mantle on Friday and I am THRILLED with how it looks so far. It will be painted the same color as the rest of the trim in our living room, BM White dove. They also dropped off the carrara marble slab for the hearth, and I'm equally smitten! We're hoping to have the hearth and subway tile surround installed this week.

The bathroom cabinets were also installed last week. The vanity counter top was supposed to come yesterday but this snow storm has thrown yet another wrench in our schedule, so we'll just have to wait and see how things pan out. But as soon as the counter top is in, they can finish the plumbing, install the linen cabinet on top of the vanity, and finally hang the mirror and sconces. 

I just keep reciting to myself...

patience is a virtue
patience is a virtue
patience is a virtue

Master Bedroom Mood Board

Master Bedroom Mood Boarf

Things are getting close! Today, the painters are putting the finishing coats on the trim, the electrician is hanging our fixtures and finishing the outlets, and tomorrow our hardwood floors will be sanded and stained. I've felt like a gypsy the last week (going on two now) because we've been hopping from relative to relative's house in order to keep little Harrison away from all of the fumes at home. But we're getting so close now, I can almost taste it! 

Today I put together a little mood board for our master bedroom... 

I like a mix of traditional pieces with contemporary art and accessories. Our bed was actually a wedding gift from my parents and we've used these Restoration Hardware bed linens since our wedding as well, except we just added this linen duvet cover recently for a more lush, layered feel. I ordered custom made, black out, flat roman shades in an off white linen for the window treatments that should be ready in the next couple of weeks. Other than the windows there isn't a lot of new things we need for our master, except I do want new bedside table lamps and art. I'm loving this piece right now, and think it would look amazing over our bed, although I'm worried the size may be a little too small.. but the colors are perfect.
