Week In Pictures

Recent happenings through the eyes of my phone camera.

Last weekend we discovered our new favorite place - Sandventure!!

LOVING this foundation.  Also loving that one of my girlfriends works for Revlon and hooks me up!!

My SIL sent this pic from the 4th.  Natey and Ty are besties for life!

Got super excited about Fall and switched to darker nails!  One of my favorites - Essie Wicked.

It's SO hard leaving the little girls in the morning.  They just want to snuggle!

I don't get Starbucks all that often, but it is so sweet that the baristas remember I need a sleeve!  Cold hands, warm heart!

Blaming this dress for the reason I now have 4 million NEW mosquito bites and am going insane!

But had the BEST time at Sandy and Alex's wedding!

Ate our way around the fair!  Crab Fritters, Fried Pickles, Breakfast Quesadilla, Nutella and Strawberry Crepes and corn!!

Happy weekend!

Dining Room Update

Our dining room was one of the easiest updates we had on our list, other than figuring out the paint color.  It is a small space but makes a big impact because it is seen from the front door. Definitely an important room to have looking good!

Once we had 4,000 paint samples of dark grays all over the wall, we realized we didn't love them and decided to select a medium gray.  We saw these pictures of Young House Love's gray bedroom and had to get a sample!  Off to Benjamin Moore we went and picked up Rockport Gray.  The pictures don't do it justice, but it is perfect with the curtains!

We also moved our monogram here.  This thing has been everywhere in our house - it truly does work in any place!  Love it on the front door but my wreaths get first billing.

This is also Chimi's favorite room because she gets lots of nice sun to lay out.

The light fixture still works perfectly in here.  So glad we did this!

Attempted some evening shots to see the color better - not much help.

The list is ticking away!  Love making those check marks. :)

Happy Friday!

Week In Pictures

Recent happenings through the eyes of my phone camera.

Another new favorite polish - OPI Alpine Snow!  (shown with my addiction - Diet Sunkist Lemonade)

Chimi is also loving this new color.

New crops from AE!  Doesn't everyone take mirror shots to make sure you like what you are buying from all angles??

Have been wanting to switch from sheets to dryer balls for a while.  These little cuties made me do it!

Junk room was beyond repair...had to do my quarterly cleaning session.

Sprinks new favorite toy - she loses her mind over this ball!

Our nephew Tyler is two!  He got a sit and spin from us.  He has the sitting part down!  Miss him!

Our sectional came for the patio!  Good thing Natey likes putting things together...

Saw this deal on Very Jane for the cutest striped cardis ever!  The red was my first choice but it was sold out so I got the black.  Can't wait for it to arrive!

Then went to Albertville outlets with Steph and Loft had a similar one!  It is going to be a Fall filled with cardis (who am I kidding...cardis are all I wear any season)!

Wearing this oldie but a goodie on Friday.

Friday night Nate was at the Twins game so I got myself some sushi and relaxed!  So nice!  PS - this Old Man and the Sea roll from Tokyo sushi is TO DIE FOR!!

The seats Nate and his friends were in had them on TV about every 30 seconds.  Cracked me up!

We grabbed brunch at one of my favorite places this weekend - Hot Plate!  Love the decor, food, location, everything!  I got the Corned Beef Hash and Pumpkin Waffles.  AMAZING!!

We are loving the patio!  Caught up on Instagram and my trashy magazines with Natey and the little girls.

Funny little faces waking me up.  Love them so much!

Our strawberry hydrangeas are slowly starting to turn pink!

Hope you are having a great weekend!
