Farmhouse Friday 2/9/18

Happy Friday! What a whirlwind of a week it was. Our pilot aired on HGTV last Saturday, and while it was a momentous occasion - one we'd worked towards on and off for 3 years - it was over in a flash. On Sunday we were back to dealing with our rental properties, wrangling kids, and visiting late into the night with friends :) We'll definitely let you know if and when Master Plan airs again on HGTV. And don't worry, we requested more notice next time ;) A lot of you are asking when to expect more episodes, which makes all of that hard work on the pilot seem worth it! But honestly, we just don't know if anything will come of it. HGTV is rumored to commission upwards of 60 pilots a year, some of which are aired, some of which are not, and only a handful get picked up for a first season. We're just happy that ours saw the light of day.

In other news, our boys...

Our Farmhouse // Master bedroom (update post coming next week)

These boys (and Daphne too!) really do make things fun. Hard and exhausting at times, yes - I think that goes without saying when you have young kids - but also so fun! Case in point: Valentines Day. As I mentioned last week, Valentines Day used to be little more than an excuse for Garrett and I to cook dinner together. But now, it's a thing at our house. We make cards, write sweet notes, read extra stories, and bake!  Thankfully the boys seem to have inherited my sweet tooth (or maybe not thankfully, but you know), and they are even more excited than I am to make our traditional Valentines Day treat: extra-large, heart-shaped sugar cookies with super thick pink frosting. It's Nana's recipe!

Well it's Friday again, which means I've scoured the internet for great links. Grab a cup of coffee and jump in.

I mentioned last week that we purchased an inexpensive soil moisture sensor for our new fiddle leaf fig and I'm kind of shocked at how little it's telling me to water. Perhaps that's why I've been slowly killing our houseplants. ;)

Baby Bennett's nursery reveal is up on Wit and Delight and it's just as beautiful and fun as I thought it would be. Kate always gets it right.

Ever wonder what people think about their kitchen renovations years after they've lived in them? Stefanie is sharing 5 mistakes she made a decade later. Related: earlier this week Garrett and I shared what we liked best in the 7 kitchens we've renovated to date.

Planning to make these falafel burgers tonight.  Fingers crossed they are as delicious as the recipe looks.

My love for antique beds knows no bounds, but this beauty stopped me in my tracks.

Jenna's DreamStone Diaries vlog is awesome! Have you guys been watching? It's definitely worth a follow if you're into houses, design, or real estate investing!

Have a great weekend!
