The Friday Before Vacation

Happy Friday, folks! I’m in a particularly good mood today because it’s the Friday before vacation for us in the Anderson household! I’m only two days away from sunshine and warmth, and I cannot wait.

The Friday Before Vacation
Although, there’s not much to complain about in Wisconsin this week. We reached 70 degrees a couple days ago, and it was glorious. We finally got all our Christmas lights taken down, the front yard cleaned up some, and Finn was spoiled with a few walks. It’s crazy how a little sunshine instantly boosts my mood. Oh yeah, and I wore all the spring things. As much as I love my cozy sweaters, it’s definitely about that time when I’m itching for a change.

Before I run off to finish packing – okay, more like start packing – here’s a few of my favorites from around the Web this week.

| An easy tutorial for an effortless, textured messy ponytail.

| The cutest front porch spring decor.

| My next DIY project for our master bedroom.

| Have you been into Target lately? Their shoe department is ON FIRE. I have my eyes on these sneakers and these low block heels.

| ICYMI – my top 5 birthday wish list and our DIY faux fireplace reveal.

While I am going to try to stay off social media a majority of next week, I’m sure I won’t be able to help myself at least a little bit. Be sure to follow me on Instagram @msinthemidwest to see what we’re up to! Regular content also will be posted on schedule here on the blog, so stay tuned to next week. 🙂

Have a wonderful weekend!

    It really is amazing how the weather can be an instant mood booster or mood downer. I’m glad that you’ve been enjoying the nice weather and are ready for your vacation! That tutorial for the textured ponytail is amazing!
