Kitchen Update {New Chandelier}

March 24, 2013

Happy Sunday!!
I am so excited I can't even contain myself. We have been in our home for just about five years now and I've had to look at an ugly black ceiling fan in my kitchen, doing nothing but collecting and spinning dust everywhere!! Seems like when we did our original renovations we put a fan in every single room in the house! So NOT a fan! So after months of trying to find the perfect chandelier that would fit in our small kitchen over a high kitchen island, I finally found one on...wait for it.... eBay!!!
So without further adieu...
My new chandelier...

It is just perfect....

The Mom Cave {sneak peak}

March 17, 2013

Finally!!! Things are taking shape in the mom cave.... After weeks of waiting for the desk to arrive, getting shelves up and computer moved things have really fallen (literally) together and I'm so excited that I had to write a post and share pictures even though there are a few more items that  need attention. First and foremost, a great cozy chair and some cute window treatments. I've been to Home Goods and back, Pier 1 and online numerous times and I just can not commit to a chair, window treatments or a rug!
I really would like all three to coordinate, but I just can't make up my mind (shocker!!).
So here it is... 
The Mom Cave in the making!

Just a sneak peak....more to come soon!
In the mean time a little source list:
The pillow is from My Sweet Savannah's Melanie and you can find her Etsy shop here and her blog here.
The chair is from Ikea, the "mail" bin is from Joss & Main.
The desk and large bulletin board is from Ballard Design.
The wall shelves are from Ikea...
That's your sneak peak! Hope you like it!
Happy St. Patrick's Day!!!

Obsessed!! {Chalkboard Tags}

March 11, 2013

Happy Monday!!!
So once again it's been a crazy couple of weeks. The office is almost done. Sadly at the present moment it is being used once again as a storage room until we are done painting and updating our living room (more on that soon!!) and finding a place for every little thing in the office. Not an easy task at all....
As I was searching the Internet for fun organization ideas for the office I came across this shop on Etsy and did a complete 360 and ended up back into my kitchen to make some cute updates....
I am kind of obsessed with chalkboard anything these days and I just had to have these!!
Aren't they adorable??!!
Get yours here!!

Bobbing for Babbles {mommy & gracie day}

March 2, 2013

Happy Saturday!!
Even though I can't wait until Spring, I am still kind of glad it's a cold winter day.... It gives me a great excuse to paint my nails in one of those great bold, dark, "winter" type colors I've been seeing all over Pinterest. I've pinned tons of the here....
I'm really not a dark color type of gal, but it was a special day getting my nails done with my Gracie and she LOVED the color and insisted I get it so here it is.......
it's called "Bobbing for Babbles" by Essie.
Cute right?

Have a great weekend!!!
