I change my mind, I'll take a lounge!

The patio idea I originally posted over here is great in terms of a typical outside dining space. But we kinda live outside and I'm getting old, which means I need a comfortable seat! I think this outdoor couch via ikea is just the ticket; so I'm trading the dining table for a couch! Will post live pictures soon!

It doesn't get more "Spring" than this! {Our spring pictures!}

This was like walking onto the poppy field scene in the "Wizard of Oz" so so spectacular! These are the flower fields in Carlsbad, California and for a color lover like me, a complete dream come true!

Boaz's "Buzz lightyear" room

To say my two year old loves toy story would be a gross understatement at this time! I try and veer from overly themed rooms just because they grow out of the phase so quickly, but when I saw this rocket canopy on land of nod, I had to come up with a whole room centered around that piece!

Friday Favorites


(via)

This bike kinda sums me up right now! Feeling worn (a bit old!), there's a bell indicating there's still some toot in my horn, and the flowers.....the flowers offer hope of new life. 
In other news, this past week we had tinker bell and the pirate fairy movie on repeat. They are cleverly lining up the tinker bell stories to the Peter Pan world, which I find fascinating! Anyway, its a great story with a great lesson on mercy. Check it out!

Along with everyone else in the world I am beyond obsessed with frozen- it caught my heart at a very fragile time and hit me in the best way. Check out kristen bell singing all three anna voices, she's such a talent. My other favorites from the week:


This style quiz was fun!

I need to start drinking my coffee with two hands.

Have a great weekend, friends!

Wallpapering using wrapping paper

We've landed an awesome base house in San Diego, the Lord's grace to us truly. There's basketball courts, sidewalks galore and parks on every corner-dream come true for this season of our life. It's really been answered prayer, I was one lonely girl out in the country.

I'm sure this will surprise no one, but I've already contact papered my kitchen and changed out the light fixtures. (which we will have to hang back once we leave!) Next up on my to-do list is the downstairs powder room. I love when you go into bathroom and your surprised in a good way...wallpaper, cool mirrors, artwork-delightful. While I'm not going to wallpaper, it occurred to me I could possible use pretty wrapping paper and get that same wowzer impact. After all its teeny tiny in there so it shouldn't take too long and be cost effective. Here are my top two favorite options:

A whole meal around goat cheese

I have a serious love for goat cheese, it just gets me. A cheese that is creamy, tart, and smooth. Heavenly. Here's two goat cheese recipes that have me drooling.

Turquoise stones

Ever feel like you've been lashed by a storm?! Yeah me too. In fact, the day I arrived to California. A storm in my life I never saw coming....

I intended merely to hit the reset button when I arrived to California, but God wanted a complete rebuild. Good news....when he rebuilds it's with precious gem stones.
