Happy Monday all! Moving day is around the corner, and I am so excited to finally be in our new home. We will dearly miss our current house – it’s a charming cottage we bought right before we were married. From our days as newlyweds to bringing both of our children home from the hospital to this house, we have loved every minute. The cottage will always have a special place in our hearts, however, life is filled with change, and this change is one we are all ready for! We can’t wait for our next chapter and the fun adventures ahead.
So what am I most excited about? The pristine white kitchen of course! You know how I love to cook, and having a beautiful space to make all the meals will be a real treat. And the playroom – finally a place to store all of the boy’s toys!
We will now have a guest room for loved ones too (hooray!), and we will need to put the finishing touches on this cozy retreat so it’s ready for visitors. We’re doing a neutral palate – think white, tan and blue – including some special monogrammed pillows for the bed. I still need to find a headboard, mirror, and other furniture, and so I’ve been trying to find some inspiration. Here are a few of my favorite guest rooms, and cheers to a great week ahead!
Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! We celebrated Mother’s Day with our family, including the boys godparents and their precious baby girl, and it was so special to all be together. We had brunch yesterday at one of our favorite restaurants in Dallas – Bistro 31 – and sat on their sun drenched patio enjoying the gorgeous weather, fabulous food and of course incredible company. The weekend was capped off with a casual dinner with my parents at our house, and I’ll share my blue and white table setting and floral arrangements later this week.
Now onto the sandals! White sandals are always on-trend for summer, especially this year. I’m loving these classic ones by Joie (they are also 10% off!), and can’t wait to wear them with white jeans or maybe a little striped sundress. I’ve included my favorite white sandals and slides for the season, and cheers to a great week ahead!
I’m so excited for Mother’s Day next weekend – we will be baptizing our second baby boy and celebrating this beautiful day with loved ones, including our son’s incredible god-family. Mother’s Day is of course a perfect occasion to show mom how much you love and appreciate her, and so I’ve rounded up some goodies that she’s sure to adore. Also, keep an eye out for an upcoming post on the baptism brunch, including a DYI for the flowers. Cheers to the weekend!
