Makeup Vanity Lights

I have been hunting for some lights for my makeup vanity for a long time, and finally found the perfect ones!  I was inspired by this vanity found on Pinterest, and also this one from Glitter Guide.  I reached out to the first one on Instagram to ask where from but didn't hear back, then just did a bit of googling and found these puppies at Ikea!



You might have seen this posted on Instagram a while back - takes me a while to post blogs these days!


I love having more light!  I love our bedroom so much but we are always lacking light.  Our ceiling fan basically gives off a dim nothing light, so in the mornings I was getting ready in the dark for work!  No longer!


We still need to figure out the chair/stool situation.  This friend has been helpful, but not pretty in here!  My birthday is coming up in a week so I am hoping to possibly up my chair game from the hubs...hint hint!



And of course the wall still looks blank.  I don't think we will put a mirror here, since really all I need is the small mirror, so maybe art someday?  Never ending ideas and projects...



While I was taking these pictures I looked over and the little girls were snuggled in so cute!  Of course I had to have a mini photo shoot of them!



Love her bed beard!





I love making house progress!  Who's with me??

Nursery Planning Has Begun!

Now that things are getting a little more real, I have been super obsessed with nursery planning!  So far we have some ideas, but making them come to life has been the struggle.  And I am semi starting to show a little so we need to get cracking!  21 weeks will fly by!


The room we are using for the nursery is currently the least used room in our house, so I am excited for it to be cute and over used! :)  We had a guest bed, TV, desk, and Nate irons in here.  That is about all it offered!  


As you can see on the walls, we like grey so we can go crazier with the accent piece colors.  Here we go again with paint samples!


At this point we are leaning towards aqua and orange accents, and if a girl, adding in magenta. I'm sure once we start finding things everything will change!  One thing we know, we will have this canvas in here (purchased from Swag).  I have had it for years and we love it for the nursery!  Whether we have a boy or girl, they will need to be a dog lover.  So excited to have this as a focal point in here!


Our first to-do was to sell the bed so we could get in the room and start creating!  Nate did get it sold on Craigslist this weekend so I am glad to have the empty space now, and our first purchase had arrived - a rug!  Bad news - the rug is smaller than I was hoping (and Nate doesn't love the quality of it).  I am planning on exchanging for a bigger size because for the price, I feel like the quality is just fine and I do really like the color and look.  TBD on this...


View from the closet; posted this sadness on Instagram.




Chimi likes it!


I also know I want to paint a dresser a fun color for the nursery, and my parents have an old dresser at the lake they are getting rid of.  Perfect!  Can't wait to see the after!


Also toying with the idea of a hot orange closet...do we dare?? :)


 So that is where we are at - I know it isn't very far but have to start somewhere!

Little girls love sitting here while we cook.


Love new tumblers!


Work fun!  Well, for a while it was fun...

This has been our go to dinner recently!  Spinach, rotisserie chicken, pickles, tomatoes, avocado, cucumber, lemon juice and salt and pepper.  Addicted!!


Every morning I gather as many snacks as I can find to bring to work.  Never enough!


New magnetic board from Hobby Lobby!  Matches the loft so nicely.


We have had tons of stone samples laying around and can't figure out what we like.  So hard!


Had our St Patty's wreath up!  Only decor I got around to!


The lithe girls had dentals recently.  Chimi is always a little drugged for a while after.


Spotted this at Sam's Club and am obsessed!!  Feel like this is a must have for this summer with the fam at the lake!


We are still making tons of smoothies!  Love our Nutribullet!


So vacation got me super behind on the Closet Remix Challenge, but I like to think I still did an ok job with it. :)  Here are a few that I posted on Instagram.  Comment if there are any outfit deets you are curious about!












I realized I matched my tumbler as I was leaving. :)
