Currently …

Dreaming … 
of our finished family room. Now that we actually have paint on the walls, furniture in there and new carpet picked out, I’m especially anxious to get the built-ins finished so we can fully enjoy the room.


Planning …
our two-year wedding anniversary vacation to San Juan, Puerto Rico! We finally decided this week that that is where we want to go, and I’m looking forward to another fun adventure come October. 

Cooking …
lots of new recipes that allow me to use my Veggetti. I definitely was missing out on this trend – zoodles are delicious! 

Drinking … 
water with Dasani flavor enhancer drops. I can’t get enough. 

Reading …
The Girl On the Train by Paula Hawkins.

Wanting …
see Dreaming – a finished family room!

Looking …
for decor and unique pieces for the built-in shelves.


Enjoying …
the sunshine and warmer temperatures! Who knew that 40 degrees could feel warm?

Watching …
Friday Night Lights on Netflix. There’s a total binge-a-thon happening over here, and I’m not one bit sorry about it. 

Playing …
fetch with Finny boy! 

Wasting …
(too much) time relaxing on our new sectional. It’s so darn comfortable! 

Loving …
all my new makeup and clothes from my birthday shopping trip with my mom. Now it just needs to be warm enough for me to wear them! 

Needing …
to get my office space painted and decorated so I finally have a retreat of my own to work.

Wearing …
skinnies, graphic tees and lightweight cardigans  – pretty sure this is my new go-to spring uniform when I don’t want to think too hard about putting together an outfit. 

Following …
closets galore on Poshmark!

Thinking …
about my extensive, never-ending to do list for the week(s) ahead.

Feeling …
happy, content and at peace. There are no better feelings!

    I loooooove your design inspiration. A girl after my own design heart! Also, super jealous of your PR getaway coming in October! What a fun way to celebrate!

    We stayed just outside of San Juan near the airport. Definitely spend some time in Old San Juan and walking around the Forts. It's a really pretty little town. Try the mufungo! Check out the rainforest – that was one of my favorites! I have some other suggestions in the travel section of my blog too, if you're interested.

  3. 3.10.15

    I can't wait to see more of your living room once you guys are all finished- I'm sure it looks amazing. Also, I can't wait to hear what you think of Girl on the Train! And yay for an anniversary trip!

  4. 3.10.15

    Thanks, girl! It's coming together slowly. πŸ™‚

  5. 3.10.15

    You will love the veggie spiralizer! It's so easy to use and makes delicious meals! I definitely love our tradition of anniversary trips – I hope it continues once kids come into the picture!

  6. 3.10.15

    I can only hope my rooms turn out half as good as those! We are super excited for our vacation – it's the one tradition that we established before we got married that we would try to go away every year for our anniversary.

  7. 3.10.15

    We can't wait for vacation!

  8. 3.10.15

    I just can't wait for my home not to be a disaster zone so I can decorate period! πŸ™‚ Girl On The Train is good so far – looking forward to getting deeper into it!

  9. 3.10.15

    I'm only a chapter into it, too (I've been too into binge watching Friday Night Lights, lol) but so far, so good!

  10. 3.10.15

    An early congratulations to you! I love October weddings, but obviously I'm a bit biased. πŸ™‚

  11. 3.10.15

    Thanks, mom! We are excited for our vacation – just like I'm sure you're excited to get Finny for a week! πŸ™‚

  12. 3.10.15

    Our sectional is from Ashley Furniture! We got it for a great deal during their President's Day weekend sale, and we are very happy with our choice. I ordered sitting chairs from Wayfair that should be here today, which also will be my first experience with ordering furniture online. We'll see how they turn out!

  13. 3.10.15

    I know, the weather is divine right now. I can't believe I waited so long to watch FNL – it's so addicting!

  14. 3.10.15

    Right?! I still need to unpack my office, lol!

  15. 3.10.15

    Where in PR did you honeymoon?! We are going directly to San Juan – I'd love all the tips and recommendations that you can give!

  16. 3.10.15

    I love it, too! Such great inspiration.

  17. 3.10.15

    Right?! I wish we didn't have to wait until October!

  18. 3.10.15

    Thanks, girl! I'm definitely excited for both things that you mentioned. πŸ™‚

  19. 3.9.15

    I love what you all have done with your living area so far; what fun colors! Up next on the reading list is Girl on the Train for sure.

  20. 3.9.15

    I FINALLY got myself a veggie spiralizer and have big plans for it this week – haha! And yay to anniversary trips!! My husband and I did that for our first two, and now I'm longing to start that tradition back up again!

    I'm reading Leaving Time by Jodi Picoult right now, but The Girl on the Train is next on my list – I've heard amazing things about it. I totally hear you – it's currently 3 degrees and sunny, but it feels amazing just to be above freezing! Those room photos are all so dreamy – they're really getting me in the mood for some spring redecorating!

  23. 3.9.15

    Love everything in this post!! Are you enjoying that book so far? I was reading the summary on the Kindle and it sounds good, but I'd love to hear what you think about it. The 40s felt amazing this weekend. So excited for the 50s this week too!! Hope that you guys had a nice weekend too!! πŸ™‚

    Loving that shelf inspiration! It's so hard to find the perfect knick-knacks to put on shelves in my opinion πŸ˜‰

    Your family room is getting there, love all your inspiration!

  26. 3.9.15

    So glad to hear your new sectional is comfortable – that's my biggest fear with ordering a couch online! Can't wait to see what you do with your office space, that's on my (never ending) to do list, too πŸ™‚ Happy Monday!

  27. 3.9.15

    Can't wait to see your family room! It's amazing how wonderful 40 degrees feels, no more gloves, I can unzip my coat, it's heavenly! You know I love my Friday Night Lights, and yay for picking a vacation destination!

    Yay for Puerto Rico!! That's where we honeymooned and we loved it! Let me know if you need any suggestions. πŸ™‚ Doesn't 40 degrees feel amazing?! I'm with you on that one. I was all about a light jacket and no socks/scarves/etc this weekend.
