Catching you up with all things currently.
Happy Friday friends! How was your week? Ours was a whirlwind (which seems to be becoming the norm around here lately!).
Carson celebrated his 10th birthday last week (two whole hands old, I still can’t believe it!). We’ve never really been much for big birthday parties and instead usually celebrate by spending the day together doing something special, usually with a couple of friends along for the adventure. This year Carson wanted to head into the city to check out the waterpark, so off we went to spend the day jumping through waves and sliding down waterslides with three adventurous boys in tow. It was a super fun day and Brady and I always enjoy the chance to spend some extra time with C and his buddies.
Spring has officially arrived and it’s had us dreaming and scheming up all sorts of plans for the Summer ahead. Brady’s been hard at work planning out the new garage build for our backyard while I’ve been searching up all sorts of ideas and inspiration for some exterior renovations. After working our way through most of the interior of this old house from the 70’s (see how far we’ve come here), it’s been super fun to start thinking about some of the things we could do to make the exterior feel more like us. And, while the interior of our home has always been fairly neutral and “safe” in its decor I’d say, I’m planning to go a little more bold with our exterior. It was this beautiful home that sparked the idea – I happened across it a few years ago and haven’t been able to shake the idea since…
We’re just in the beginning stages of planning all the things, but after years of dreaming up ideas for our exterior, I couldn’t be more excited to finally start bringing it all to life! Stay tuned friends, I promise to keep you posted along the way!
But first, here’s a quick little update of where we are currently…
Reading: Here’s what’s on my nightstand right now.
Writing: A wish list of project ideas for the Summer ahead.
Needing: Now that the weather has warmed up, it’s time to pull myself away from our Peloton Tread and get my butt out for a run outside!
Creating: I’ve been working on an updated video tour to share. Our last one was in early 2020 and there’s been SO many changes since that I definitely need to share.
Wearing: With the snow finally melted away, I’m SO happy to be able to wear my favourite flats outside again!
On my wish list: I’ve been shopping for a new dining table for ages now and this one is quickly moving to the top of my wish list. I think it would look amazing with some white upholstered chairs at either end.
Planning: I’ve been diving deep into planning out all of the ways we can bring more character to the exterior of our home (check out all of my inspiration on Pinterest here).
Working for me right now: Still loving my Peloton Bike+ and Tread! Honestly, I can’t wait to put them to work most days!
What’s not: Finding balance through all the things. It’s been such a struggle to find the time to fit it all in and get it all done lately.
Anticipating: Summer and all of the fun, adventure and outdoor projects that come with that!
I’d LOVE to hear where are you currently! Let me know what’s new and exciting in the comments below.
Wishing you SUCH a lovely day my friends!
