Dining

A dining room may be one of my favorite spaces in any home. It's a place for families and friends to gather and chat about the day. Ours is also known to quickly become an art center or game table. I thought it would be fun to put a space together that I wouldn't mind having for myself and I think this one would do quite nicely. I could easily see myself enjoying this space thoroughly especially while enjoying a meal from The Paleo Comfort Foods which has become one of my favorite cookbooks for cooking gluten free.

Chic

Every once in awhile I dream of what it would be like to be pregnant again. I absolutely adored it even though I was sick every day for 9 months and gained 40 with KJ and 60 with Ellie. In my current dreams though I am quite blissful and easily resemble this mama to be. In reality though my non pregnant self still dreams and in these dreams I have carefree spaces layered with things I love, I live by the water, and I am continually and beautifully organized in my all time favorite binders. Rows and rows of the binders would easily grace my bookshelves. This little amethyst beauty from Mackenzie's new shop could easily keep all my papers from going astray upon my lovely little desk. Oh, and the best part? Some of my dreams can become a reality! (no not the pregnant part though)

Happy Easter {snippets of my home}

These are a few little shots of our Easter decor. Yes, I know the reason for the season is not bunnies and Easter eggs, but they are quite cute and the kiddos really like them. I am incredible thankful for my Lord and Savior. I am who I am today because of the sacrifice he made for me so long ago. It also reminds me to live this life to the fullest and one of those things that continually bogs me down is a messy home. The quote above and the whole reason I bought the book was for that little reminder to not miss moments because things are out of place for a bit. It really does make me a bad mother at times and I have been blessed with two children who don't need me to get in a tizzy over a house. They need me to be an example of Christ and show continual love no matter the circumstance and a little mess is not worthy of being an issue. I mean REALLY?!?! Why is this even an issue for me.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

*my bunnies and eggs came from Pier One. New coffee table books: book by Mary Randolf Carter, Steven Gambrel, and Victoria Hagan.

Color

It seems Ellie has been rubbing off on me in the color department. She LOVES color and you know how I veer towards neutrals, but I must say I adore these pants from J.Crew factory. This little shoot was done by the Mr. right before Ellie lost her front top tooth. Every time she talks I can't help but stare at the gaping hole. Ha. KJ is finally going through the "I can't stand picture phase". I am thankful he managed to squeeze in a few since he is looking mighty cute these days. I just love them.

Changes {Christy Ford}

Do you recall this little girls room from Christy Ford that was featured in Southern Living ages ago? Well, on her blog, and George, she shared the progression of these two rooms for her children. Happy to know I am not the only one who changes up the kids rooms so much. Photo as seen in Southern Living...

and the room over the years...

Not sure which room this was from, but I sure do love it! You can see more images of the spaces on and George.
