1.  I even squeezed in some time to get a Hydrafacial, which was a very relaxing treat. I haven’t had a facial in a really long time.

2.  After considering moving my office from an extra upstairs bedroom downstairs to the dining room, I gave it a try this week.

We don’t use our formal dining room often, and it feels like wasted space. My thought is that I could keep the dining room as is but set up the table more like a desk. If we needed it for dining, I could just move my computers into our bedroom.

Turns out, it’s been so convenient to be downstairs. I love the view of the windows from the dining room, and I think this might need to be a more permanent change.

3.  This has made me have the wild hair to change up the wallpaper. Whoops. I have the nature-inspired mural coming that I’m really excited about! I will share more details once the installation begins.

4.  I binge-watched Selling Sunset‘s new season over the weekend, I think I’m over this series. The framing of the constant chase of ego and money is starting to feel a little sad to me. Does anyone else feel that way? I know many shows are like this, but the “reality TV” element of this one makes it feel extra depressing.

But I did watch RHONJ wedding special and part 1 of the VPR finale and that was a great time.

5.  The pool has started a soft open and I’m gearing up for one on two under 3.5 years old at the pool. Prayers are appreciated!

I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday weekend and stays safe and cozy. Thank you so much for stopping by and checking in. Talk soon xo –

  1. Same exact feeling on Selling Sunset. Couldn’t even get through the first half of the new season! I don’t WFH so I made my dining room a “lounge” & I love it!!

  2. I can’t agree more on Selling Sunset. I still watch it to binge the excessive fashion though. Oh the looks!

  3. hi Kat! We just moved into a new house and wanted a formal dining room but realized it wouldn’t be used that often so we call it “the library” as it can transition from work/homework to dining very easily! it’s very achievable and being on the first level does make a difference, you’ll love it!
