Hydrangeasummertable_thumb.jpg As you are reading this I am hopefully nowhere near a computer and I am kidless, shoeless and in the sunshine. Dana and I are finally getting away for a few days to celebrate our 20th anniversary (that was a year and a half ago). Now do not worry, my house is not sitting empty and my children are cared for - Grandparents for the win! I saw so many inspiring things this week and fell down a few internet rabbit holes that I just had to share them with you today. First, I want to share the beautiful new fabric line from my friend KariAnne. The one that looks sort of like lace is my favorite for sure. Sweet Tea Okay, so last week I shared the actual commercial but it turns out the outtakes are just as good. I do realize that we are biased and have a long standing love relationship with Cookie Monster, but really, it is so funny. If you are feeling the itch to get your DIY on this spring, here is a great guide to inspire you for some outdoor projects. 16projectstotry_this_Spring In the old days of blogging, I was always discovering new blogS. Truthfully, I don't have a lot of time reading blogs these days but this one stopped me in my tracks and sent me down the internet rabbit hole for much longer than I had time for. Let's start with this project - stunning! When you are done there, visit her house tour. Her style is just lovely and creative. Speaking of the old days of blogging, did you see the project I shared this week as part of a series of bloggers who were sharing Thrifty Under $50 - remaking something from a vintage shop or yard sale, all for less than $50. I shared the vanity desk we made for our daughter's room from an old door. You can start the whole tour of projects at Beth's - Home Stories A to Z. vanity-desk-from-old-door I saw this dress in person last week but I didn't have time to stop and try it on. I am thinking about using a gift card for it. What do you think? This recipe looks so delicious and fresh and light. Of course it will probably be less "light" if I eat with a million chips like a usually do. I love the crustless take on this recipe. I have been trying to eat a little bit healthier and this looks it would be a great meal. This bedroom makeover is so simple but it is so bright and light and makes such a huge impact. I was feeling a little bit sentimental last night and rediscovered a few posts that are just so true - We Are All a Village and Who's Your Betty. And just for fun, Thirteen Things About Hawaii. I attended a really amazing event last week and here is the perfect sum up of how it all went. Can you find which collage is mine? That is all sweet friends - enjoy your weekend!
