TODAY is the day I pick up Frank!! I’m beyond excited. I’m apologizing now for the massive amount of puppy photos heading your way.

west elm- seriously I need to go to a west elm support group. I can’t stop buying home stuff.

our home is coming together and I’m loving it

what surprised me this week?

I’ve woken up at 5:45 four mornings in a row to go to a 6:30 bar method class. Shocking. It felt amazing though and I’m hooked on early morning workouts. I wonder how that will all work out with a puppy

Lastly…this has nothing to do with inspiration, gratitude & surprises but I had to share because it made me laugh out loud.

It’s wedding party time

obsessed

5 Feb

I’m obsessed with all things home decor right now. OBSESSED. I think it comes with the territory of moving into a new space, right? Problem is I have a long list of other things I need to do, like work. But instead I find myself spending a good portion of my day calling my mother with new decorating ideas….I think a mirror should go here and a table there and maybe we need a rug in the office and we need a painting there and should we paint the walls? When Brian gets home from work I spend at least a half an hour (after I give him a hug and kiss of course) showing him things we clearly NEED at West Elm. He seems less enthused than I. For a man who doesn’t see how important a Bazzar Pouf can be to one’s life – he certainly has some strong opinions about decorating. I’m dying to meet those husbands who don’t care what the new couch looks like because that’s not who I am marrying. I show him pictures and he’s like “naaaah, I don’t like that shade of grey”. I mean reeeeaaaallly. Doesn’t he know I’m only asking to be fair? Kidding…kinda. Thankfully I’ve made him realize how important it is that we have THIS rug in our office.

Alright, I’m off to tackle Tuesday and finding the “perfect shade of grey” couch. I’ll leave you with a few home decor inspiration photos that make me swoon.
