One Room Challenge Week 3

Morning! Busy little bee over here….this weekend we are having my daughter’s 9th birthday party, and I have been planning a fun celebration with family and friends. As such I made the insane decision to start the actual implementation of my One Room Challenge after this weekend. So it is now a six week challenge in 1/2 the time! Put some coffee on!

So far, I chose a blush wall color, purchased some repositionable wallpaper for a focal wall, and made a plan for the addition of crown and base moldings.

I purchased some lamps (an amazing HomeGoods find):


And large scale artwork:


And I fell for this bold rug that will create its own statement:


I still need to find soft neutral curtains (see inspo pic below) and figure out what type of headboard I am doing. Yikes! But paint is going on the wall next week (and by that I mean I am painting my tushy off)! Woo hoo!


And you can follow all of the amazing progress from the other guest participants in the One Room Challenge here.



P.S. Mom, if you are reading this can you please come and hang some repositionable wallpaper? Pleeezzzzz!

Spring Styling- Easter Dresses


Hello All! This week I have been deep in the process of developing new projects, getting taxes done for hubby’s practice, and planning a fun Easter celebration! Phew! Even though the snowbanks are still visible in the backyard, I am excitedly and anxiously counting down to warmer weather!

On the top of my list is to plan an awesome Easter weekend because it will be my nephew’s FIRST Easter and he will be joining us in his first ever egg hunt!  Traditionally, my mom hosts an amazing Easter brunch complete with Easter baskets and of course, the egg hunt for the grandkids. We end up attending several Easter celebrations and as such, I try to find cute colorful dresses for the girls that will hold up to all the Easter fun!

Here is what I have scoped out so far:


Love this pleated look from Lands End


Adorable shift from Kate Spade


You cannot go wrong with this embroidered shift from J. Crew Factory


Love Navy & White– now on the hunt for some bright pink or yellow shoes!


LOVE this ribbon tie sailboat sundress now for $25!

Last year they wore the Lilly Pulitzer for Target dresses that I stood in line to get…so worth it! I am very lucky that at least for right now, they let me pick out some of their clothes…. so I will take that opportunity and run with it while the gettin’ is good!


Have a great weekend!
