Happy Friday + Links 1.13.17

Happy Friday!  If you follow me on Instagram you already know that I'm back home after a spur of the moment week in Manhattan to visit my old friend (who became my sister-in-law 11 years ago) and her brand new baby boy.  Baby Arthur was only 4 days old when I arrived, and I promptly ignored everything on my to-do list for a solid week of newborn snuggles and helping the exhausted new parents feed themselves.  It was glorious! Now that I'm home, I promise to get back on that to-do list and dig into 2017!

A few things that have me excited this week (besides a certain newborn):

We watched the Minamilism documentary on Netflix, and I'm 100% on board.  Now I'm on the look out to see how people adapt this philosophy into family homes.

The before and after of this home exterior is pretty unreal.  Chip and Joanna do it again...and again...and again...

I have no idea if this is really true, but this article about Matt Damon is one reason why I love our hometown, Ellensburg WA.  Because even if it's not true, it sure could be!

Ten Decorating blogs that will help you design on a budget.  And who's not into that?!

The best swaddle blankets for babies, in case you were wondering.

This Instagram account (and her blog too) is stunning!  Emily and her husband are renovating a 1920's Sears Kit house and I can't wait to see how it turns out!

Hope you have a great, coffee-filled weekend friends!
