Winter Wear

I have always been a summer girl- so sad when the leaves start to fall and so happy in the Spring to know that it will soon be summer.  So, it is very strange to me that I am actually sad to know I won't be wearing winter clothes much longer.  No more heated blanket, hot chocolate, space heater next to my feet, and warm, cozy sweaters in a couple months.  I better get in all the cute winter outfits I have been pinning before it is too late!

A Playroom for the Kids

This winter has been pretty mild here in Utah, but even so, we still have only been outside a few times.  For a three-year old this is torture, and has her mom scrambling for new things to do during the day.  I would LOVE to have a big playroom for my kids one day with all sorts of room to run around play.  Here is my idea of the dream playroom:

A place for Allie's dress-up clothes:

Family pictures on the walls:

Fun alphabet letters:

Possibly some cute garland:

A table to do crafts and art projects, along with shelves, drawers, and a big bulletin board or something to hang all their artwork on (maybe even a big chalkboard)

A reading nook:

Some fun ottomans to sit on:

And a big comfy couch:

What would your dream playroom include?  I am sure I am forgetting some things...

The Great Outdoors

Lately I have been aching to get outside.  In the mountains somewhere.  Away from people.  


And I would wear a cute camping outfit like this. :)

Happy Weekend

So far this weekend has been just perfect...catching up on all our shows Friday night, spending time outdoors today, and I can't wait to see some family tomorrow and sleep in Monday.  Love these three-day weekends!  I am hoping I can get caught up a little on the blog this weekend too...we'll see.  Happy Weekend!

Not sure if it is this job or cabin fever, but lately I have been daydreaming of bright, open rooms and what our future home might be like.  I love all of these spaces:

This little ole blog is a little neglected.  I am hoping things will be changing for us here in the new future and I will find myself with a little more down time...we'll see :)

My Brand New Blazer

I just bought myself a blazer- FINALLY, and I can't wait to start putting together some cute outfits:

I think I like the striped shirt under the blazer and also the sequin tank combo the most.  What is your fave?
