Farmhouse Friday 1/19/18

Happy Friday! How was your week? Garrett and I snuck away to Seattle for a couple days of city fun with the kiddos. There were bouncy houses and parks. Early happy hours and bakery breakfasts. And of course (because we are Poshustas after all) a little bit of work too. The Bryant House got ready for more guests with a new (old) bed frame in the small second bedroom (previously set up as an office). The boys slept in there, and I have to say it was soooo fun to see Wilder back in his very first nursery again! Other nostalgic highlights: bath time in my favorite yellow tub, and staying up late with friends, visiting at the dining table (and repeat for breakfast).

Living in the country has been amazing, but we miss a few "city" things. Like escalators, our friends, the trolly, and Amazon same day. But probably most of all, we miss the food. Oh the food! When we make it over to Seattle now, it's all we think about. Where can we eat lunch? What ridiculously expensive grocery store can we buy smoothies from? Where's that new brewery we heard about? And what life altering donut/ice-cream/cupcake can we treat the boys to? It's hard to fit all the food in, BUT WE TRY! I had a request for a Seattle city guide recently, so I'll try to round up our favorite spots and post them here (eventually). In the meantime, I'd love to hear of any places we MUST try next time we're in town!

Well it's Friday again, which means I've scoured the internet for all the best links and things. Grab a cup of coffee and dig in!

A thoughtful article on crafts (or craefts if you're old school) and what that means.

2018 Kitchen trends from Emily Henderson. I love so many of these, like hidden hoods (I wrote about that earlier this week, actually), marble, and banquette seating.

Where to donate everything after cleaning house. And about that cleaning...non-toxic products you probably already have in your pantry. The wonderful ladies behind these thoughtful posts, Ashley and Natasha, will be cleaning out a closet Konmari style on Instagram Stories LIVE this Sunday, so check it out!

I've been drooling over Bennett's nursery for a couple of weeks now. Lucky girl!

Speaking of lucky girls, Apple's effortless and eclectic room gets all the heart eyes.

Five-ingredient meals that make kids happy and are healthy. They get me.

I played this game with the boys at Bryant and it's soooo good.

Did you notice I changed the name of this post? I want our Friday posts to feel personal, like they're chats at our home, so I wanted to try "Farmhouse friday" out. I may still play around with the name, so bear with me.

Have a great weekend!
