Happy Friday + Links 4/28/17

Happy Friday!  It feels like an extra happy Friday at our Farmhouse since we got our Spring cleaning and organizing out of the way last weekend.  There’s nothing better than waking up to a clean house.  Okay, maybe waking up to a clean house, rested kiddos, and homemade pancakes.  A girl can dream after all 😉

Speaking of kiddos, we made a big change last weekend…we moved Brooks into Wilder’s bedroom!  It’s something I’ve talked about doing for a long time.  I had hyped the transition up in my mind to a gargantuan deal, but it turned out to be one of those ‘hey lets move Brooks’ crib into Wilder’s room’ kind of no-big-deal tasks on Saturday.  For the record, I’m so happy we finally did it!  The room feels cozier with both boys in it and they seem so happy to look across the room and see each other as they’re settling down – even though that means an extra hour of giggling, squirming, tossing and more laughing.  That part hasn’t been ideal, but nonetheless it makes my mama heart very happy.  I’ll share more on their bedroom next week, but in the meantime, do you have any suggestions for nighttime routines in a shared bedroom?

Well it’s Friday again, and I’ve scoured the internet for great links.  So grab a cup of coffee and dig in!

A lovely master suite in the San Juan Islands.  What a great use of an unfinished attic!  For the record, I’m dying for that mirror.  Wouldn’t it look amazing in baby girl’s nursery at the Farmhouse?!

Wondering whether to paint your room in a light or dark color?  This post is definitely worth a read before you get to the paint store.

The blackout drapes in Wilder and Brooks’ room are on sale! I get a lot of questions about these…we have the Navy ones and yes, we absolutely love them!

I’d like to add something like this to the powder room door.  Cute, right?!

This cake blew me away.  But who could ever eat something so beautiful?!  Okay, totally kidding because I could, but not before I took a million photos of it and framed them for my mantle.

I just bought this book and it’ll probably take me a year of bedtimes to get through it, but I’m pretty darn excited to get started!

  1. Hi Cathy,

    Thanks so much for including my post about dark vs. light paint colors in your round up! Beautiful blog. And congrats on your TV pilot. I hope that it’s a smashing success! xo, Laurel

  2. I have that same Field Guide book! It is pretty dense, but one day (maybe in 60 years) I will be proud to have memorized all of it!

  3. I had on old version of that book growing up, and I loved it. Then my dad and I would walk through the neighborhood and talk about all the architectural styles. This helped expand my love of construction / design / homes!

    • That is so sweet! What a fun family activity…I hope my kiddos would enjoy something like that when they’re older!
