Things That Thrill Me

1. I’m not a huge fan of Kelly Ripa, but if I can get my arms to look like hers with this workout, I’m in.

2. Salads are my bee’s knees lately, and this one looks especially delectable.

3. A DIY accessory in one of my favorite prints? Yes, please!

4. The family room is our next big home renovation project, and this photo and article is providing lots of inspiration.

5. Kate hasn’t posted a new hair tutorial in quite some time, but she really hit this Golden Globes-inspired updo out of the park.

6. I’ll be refreshing all my pages as my blog layout and design is revamped. This blog has a great example of an About page.

7. I love pita bread but never am quite sure what to do with it. This relatively healthy and easy option looks scrum.

8. All the elements of this chic, casual look is perfection.

9. Continuing on my acrylic kick, this DIY side table is both functional and stylish.

  8. I'm so glad that you enjoy these posts! Always nice to receive feedback so I know I'm not just boring everybody with what I find interesting. That living room is nearly identical to our space/layout, so I'm anxious to get going on it!

  15. I'm definitely coming to realize that being a homeowner means that you have a never-ending to-do list of projects!

    Not a huge fan of Kelly Rippa either. She's waaaay to thin and doesn't look womanly.

    Can't wait to see the blog revamp! The about me section on the other one is great! Yay for a renovation of your family room–we've got a list of rooms for updating/re-doing, too. It's always a process but definitely worth it in the end!!

@Disneyland is full of hidden scenes and little details. This area in particular, right around the corner from Fantasyland, was my favorite of them all! Maybe because we were there early before the crowds came pouring in, or maybe I was taking a moment to be nostalgic ... either way this was the first time in a few months that I felt happy and 100% myself. Perhaps that’s the magic of Disney that Walt always talked about.  #adultsatdisney #disneyland

  • I can’t stop obsessing over this book! It’s Behind-the-Music meets Almost Famous, and I had to constantly remind myself that I wasn’t reading an interview in Rolling Stone Magazine. I just love when a book comes around that makes me fall further in love with reading than I already am. Have you read it? What are you #currentlyreading? #bookworm #bookstagram
