It’s Friday!!  Like most weeks, this week seemed to breeze by, but in a much happier way than it has been lately.  It was our first full week living back downstairs in our bedroom and using our newly renovated bathroom (!!).

I know it may sound silly, but wow.  WOW!  I recently told Christian that I knew this bathroom remodel would be a quality of life upgrade but it is honestly even more impactful than I realized it would be.  And he agreed.  I don’t know how to even properly explain it, but not only do I love being back in our bedroom, I also just can’t believe we have this new bathroom that makes me feel like I’m at a fancy hotel.

This is our first year of home ownership.  Other than having the exterior of our home painted last year, we’ve never done any kind of major project like this.  We are renovation novices, and it was a labor of love, blood, sweat (no tears, thankfully!) – as most renovations are.  Now we are actually able to enjoy it, and I will accept the victory.  I’ll be sharing a before and after once we have all the small finishing touches complete!

This week was what I call the calm before the storm.  A slower work week before things kick into high gear next week.  So I took advantage of the time and soaked up some extra snuggles with Hudson.  Took an hour long bath with a margarita and spent more time playing peek-a-boo and less time on email.  And it was really, really sweet.

This weekend I have some projects to work on and I’m hoping to catch Chelsea Handler’s new stand up on HBO Max.  I’m hoping Christian will take over some of the cooking… even if it means takeout!  Have you watched anything wonderful lately?

Thank you so much for reading!  XO –

  1. Yesss new show alert! Netflix released a show called “Dream Home Makeover” and it’s like Chip & Joanna Gains 2.0, but even sweeter. Definitely check it out!! Have a great weekend!

  2. Emily in Paris is a fun/feel good show on Netflix. I think you’d get a kick out of it! Have a great weekend!

  3. I have a big wooden dough bowl from my grandmother too! I struggled styling it so I turned it into a giant 6 wick candle. I bought the wax off amazon and some essential oils for fragrance. Thought I’d share since I get a lot of compliments!

  4. Hi! New to your page, can you give details on sweater & jeans on the Palmetto post picture? Thanks!

    1. Welcome, Tracy! You’ll see this photo under “shop my Instagram” at the top of this page. If you click on the photo, you’ll find the denim, boots and similar sweaters.

  5. Pete Souza’s The Way I See It (HIGHLY RECOMMEND, bring tissues) and The Undoing for just beautiful backdrops and intrigue.
