    Right?! It's probably a little sad that we are that excited over a household appliance DIY, but hey – that's the joy of growing older.

    Right?! I think my obsession actually started when you bought that blush coat from Old Navy. It's just perfection. πŸ™‚

    Awe, I bet that baby ornament is too cute for words. I'm glad everybody is looking into the calligraphy class – we all should do it!

    Absolutely, especially in this weather! I'm glad I'm not alone with the winter pastels obsession – it's just so clean and fresh for this time of year.

    I was so excited when you pinned that online calligraphy course – we should do it together! I've always been big into handwriting, so I'm hoping to do it in the next few months.

    Baha, right?! You know you're grown up when you're excited about a DIY project that involves a washing machine.

    Amber, you are so sweet! I bet that hair color looks amazing on you. And, that bread – right?!

    Thanks, mom! I knew you'd like that ornament – Finn has to have it next year!

    I think the most adulthood thing ever is getting excited about washers and dryers and I have totally reached that point! That DIY looks awesome!

    I've been seeing that bread all over Pinterest – I think it's a sign I need to try it soon πŸ™‚ And I'm obsessed with winter pastels, especially blush pink right now! It's such an unexpected and fun color for winter!

    That ornament is adorable! I found a similar one in a baby form (aka a onsie) the other day too. I'm definitely looking into that calligraphy class! And I love the hair color inspiration! Have a great day girl!

    Love #s 5 and 6! My husband loves bananas and blueberries so I'll have to try making that bread some time. It would go nicely with a warm beverage. πŸ™‚

    That fruit dip sounds amazing, I think I might make a batch up this weekend to keep at work next week! I've been loving the look and creativity of hand lettering lately so I'm hoping to find some time to take that course too!

    Oh my goodness #1, 6 and 9 happening ASAP! Love this post!

    Bananas + blueberries = heaven! Will be baking this SOON! I went with almost this exact same hair color a couple of weeks ago, and I love it! It's going to look stunning on you! πŸ™‚
