Farmhouse Friday 1/26/18

Happy Friday! How was your week? We finally got past the winter onslaught of colds and other bugs around here, and we've had a healthy, sleep-filled week to show for it. It's amazing what a couple nights of decent sleep can do for a lady. I've been waking before the kids, hiking and practicing yoga, reading at night (!!!), and following the weekly routine we set for ourselves at the beginning of the year. Life is good! Of course it will only last as long as we can all stay healthy (which is certainly not for long with 2 kids in preschool), but for the time being, I'm enjoying the heck out of it.

We are in the planning stages for some exciting projects coming up on the Grit and Polish. A couple of family renovation projects (a quick bathroom reno, a kitchen!), some updates at the Farmhouse, and our big focus for 2018: DIY tutorials. I can't wait to get into all of it! But I'll share more another day, because today is Friday, which means I've scoured the internet for lots of great links. So grab a cup of coffee and jump in.

Brett and Kara Phillips, are killing it as entrepreneurs while raising 3 young kids. They filmed a pilot for HGTV and opened an online shop last year, which you can read more about in this article. I think you'll be hearing a lot more from this talented duo and you should totally follow them on Instagram!

Another beautiful kitchen from Park and Oak design. Swoon.

This is kind of random, but my brother accidentally sent one of these "no sharp edges" can openers to our house instead of his and he's never getting it back ;) Totally lives up to the hype.

Ellen Pompeo on the salary she's fought for. Plus this: "These poor girls have no real money, and the studio is making a fortune and parading them like ponies on a red carpet. I mean, Faye Dunaway is driving a f*&%ing Prius today..." And while we're on the subject: Jessica Chastain and Octavia Spencer. Same fight, different day.

Yes Daphne (Oz)! I can RELATE! Post-partum is amazing and horrifying and well, just what she said.

I'd like to highlight more of my favorite Etsy shops here on the blog and Clare Ellasser's art is on top of my list. The print above is by her and I always get the sweetest compliments on it, but then again all the prints in her shop are beautiful!

Remember last week when I told you my friends Ashley and Natasha were cleaning out a closet Konmari style? Well they did and it's amazing and now I want to clean out all my closets! You can get the recap here.

Have a great weekend!
