Happy Friday 4/12/19

Happy Friday! Things have been moving a little slow around our house this week…or maybe I should say fast. Spring sports started up (I’m coaching my 5-year old’s running team!) and our laundry room reno is getting underway (I’ll share more about next week). We’re making quite a few decisions as we go - you know, our standard M.O. - and I find myself getting more excited every day. But everything else at home - the laundry, cooking, reading, blogging - has taken a back seat. I guess you could say we’re back in renovation mode 🙃

I started a Pinterest board for those of us with wood trim in our homes. I know it’s easy to think "hey let’s brighten it up in here with some white paint” but hopefully these images will inspire you to love your wood trim…or at least appreciate it.

Stop asking kids what they want to be when they grow up. For that matter, stop asking adults what they’ve grown up to be. Do you hate this question, too? I never know how to answer it plus some of us aren’t done growing up ;)

I ordered a new swimsuit this week - a one piece with a pretty pattern that will hopefully make me feel pretty too. I’m a shop-by-reviews gal and this one had 5 stars. J.Crew’s been my go-to for 20+ years and they’re all 40% off right now (with code saleupgrade).

21 Life-Giving benefits of Owning Less. Number 3 is what I have my eye on right now.

Speaking of owning less…How Decluttering her Home Changed This Young Mother’s Entire Life. This feels very appropriate for Spring.

One weekend without your phone. One of the things I loved most about our road trip last month was all the time away from our phones because there’s no service in many National Parks. It’s harder to intentionally stay away from your phone at home (at least for me), but I’m trying…

LeAnne Ford is one of my very favorites! I pinned every photo from this reveal…

Growing up with parents who have demanding careers. Inspiration for all of us parents.

Have a great weekend!
