Happy Friday + Links 6/16/17

Happy Friday!  You guys…Father’s Day is THIS weekend!  It kinda snuck up on me this year, but I can’t wait to celebrate the dads in our lives, especially Garrett.  He is such a dedicated and downright awesome father to our boys.  We’re all so lucky to have him in our lives.  I know everyone says that, but really guys, this one is a keeper.  Garrett asked for a hike and a trip to the brewery on Father’s Day, so that’s what we’ll be doing.  Of course there will be a homemade card, drawn by a certain 4-year-old.  And Brooks will be in charge of providing extra snuggles because goodness he’s a good snuggler when he puts his mind to it.  And I’ll be doing my best to keep my feet moving forward on our *hike* which is surely to be more of a slow meander with 2 kiddos and super-pregnant me along for the adventure 😉

Anyway, happy Father’s Day to all you hard-working dadas/grandpas/uncles/friends out there who are fighting the good fight – tackling bath time, giving shoulder rides, and loving those kids more than life itself.  You make their world go round.

It’s time to grab a cup of coffee and dig in to all that the Internet has to offer!

Victorian Farmhouse Insta


These guys are restoring an 1892 Victorian Farmhouse and it’s gorgeous.  Definitely an Instagram account worth following!

A preschool in the woods.  This is pure amazing.  Sidenote: this book is now on my Amazon wish list.

The top 50 baby names of 2016.  Garrett and I settled on a sweet baby girl’s name about 4 1/2 years ago (for the record, it’s not on the list) but we himed and hawed over a middle name until about a month ago.  I love what we came up with and I’m crossing my fingers it fits our baby girl when we meet her next month!


I’m crushing hard on this window bench by DeVol Kitchens.

A stylish, family home in 484 square feet.

Tips for shopping at a Farmer’s Market.  We always end up buying way too many pastries and the kids usually leave with cherry stains all over their cheeks, but the local fruits and veggies at our Farmer’s Market just can’t be beat!

Hope you have a great weekend!  Now go celebrate those awesome dads in your life.

  1. Hello Cathy! I’ve followed you for a long time because I, too, am an old-house lover (my husband & two teens & I live in a 1907 home that we have been restoring for 25 yrs!!). I especially love your new home & it’s so much fun to see how you are decorating it! You & your husband are so very talented!! But, today, I wanted to thank you for also bringing the beautiful Victorian Farmhouse to your readers attention. It’s a WOW! home, just like yours! Had you not posted about it, I don’t think I would have had the pleasure of seeing it. So, thank you! I enjoy all your posts & Friday is always fun as you introduce me to some fun viewings that I wouldn’t maybe find on my own! Best wishes w/your newest addition. It’ll be fun to hear the special name you’ve chosen for her! Take care-

    • Thanks for the comment Lynn! Glad you liked the Victorian…I’ll keep sharing fun renovations I find on Instagram and elsewhere with you guys. And thanks for the kind words 🙂

  2. This lovely Victorian is on the historic register and needs serious love in Bellingham WA. It has an amazing views of the of the San Juan islands and should be your next project! (I’m not affiliated with it, just would love to see it brought back to life!)
