10 Things I Loved in May

Kali is finally through her urinary infection (*knocks on wood*) and we are finally able to breathe with her being in the house. We took her to doggie day care today for the first time and she seems to have had the time of her life. She’s been sleeping since we got home and I know Taz has been enjoying the quiet day around the house.

Progress around the house continues to move along slowly. At least it’s moving along at all. I’ve got a few more things up on the wall and eventually will be able to squeeze in a couple of DIY’s with some furniture. I plan to lightly sand and re-stain one and probably paint over the other.

5 Fabulous Home Tours

I haven’t been feeling too well lately. With not having that much energy to exert, I did want to still share a few favorites with you. Hope you enjoy looking at these beautiful homes as much as I did.

  1. Love this blue and white room with a fresh twist by Amanda Webster Design.
  2. I cannot get enough of this gorgeous Long Island House by Jersey Ice Cream Co. Any house with windows and views like that is to die for!
  3. If we’re all about bringing the outdoors in, why not dine at a restaurant that has plants in every corner to the point of feeling like you might be out on the patio? This is in Copenhagen!
  4. When it comes to fabulous homes in Costa Rica, you can bet Beth Webb was behind it.
  5. You never would have guessed this home owner did not spend a fortune on her home! It’s so fun and eclectic.

10 Best Landscape Photography

You know I’ve said it time and time again how much I’m inspired by nature. That being said, I want to pick up more landscape photography. I’m not choosing something because it looks pretty, but because it transports me somewhere. Here are my 10 favorites that I’d love to have in my house:

1)This is not a Gray Malin aerial view, but it’s just as good to me. Honestly, I’m in love with the colors here. I think this photographer captured just the right amount of color that would equally capture me if I were in a helicopter flying over an island for the first time. Check out the Etsy shop here.

One Room Challenge: Spring of 2017

Every year there’s a contest where 20 blogger get together for a contest. A contest to make over at least one room in 6 weeks! Can you imagine the stress? I’m a slight prostincator, so, yeah, I’m imagining that.

One Room Challenge. 20 Bloggers. 6 weeks.

But, man, are the results worth it! Sometimes we all need that push to get a room done and get some of that eye candy in our homes. Here’s a few of my favorites:

Not only do I love the blue and gray color combination done by Censtational Girl, I’m dying over that corner fireplace. And her lumbar pillow. And her ceiling light fixture… click here for more.
