Lake House Kitchen Project

This week we kicked off a project at the lake house, we are giving the kitchen an update to make it a little more our style & I’m excited to share some of the progress with you! One of the challenges with the current kitchen was the one small window which kept the kitchen feeling dark & shadowy. You know I am a lover of open shelving instead of upper cabinets, so we drew up some plans and talked to the builder of the home to see what it might look like to take down the cabinets & add some more windows to the far wall! The main floor is currently painted a dark khaki color, and we also had plans to add vertical paneling to the walls and paint them all white. Well, this week, all of our lake house dreams started to come true!

Throwback to the kitchen when we walked through the house for the first time, we made our offer on it during the very first showing right here in this kitchen!

And what it looked like after we moved in & Brandon built us an island!

And here is where we are today! It feels like a completely different space & the amount of natural light is BANANAS!! We can also see the water from the kitchen now which is an added bonus we hadn’t thought about.

I will share more pictures with you guys as we go, they are wrapping up all of the work today & painters come tomorrow morning to spray the entire first floor, it should be done mid next week!!

PS. There will be shelves on either side of that range hood that I’m already excited to style with all. the. fish. decor.

Friday Favorites

Happy Friday! I cannot believe that next weekend is already the fourth of July! We have been in full blown summer fun mode over here, lots of home projects (see my last post), and having fun at the lake with friends. I realized it has been forever since I’ve done a Friday favorites post & had a handful of things bookmarked to share with you, so let’s goooo!

If you have kids, and especially if your kids have friends over or you are hosting a lot in the summer, you need these cups in your life!!! They come in two colorways, and if you grab them both, you can mix and match for so many fun combinations! They are so great because 1. lids and straws!!! and 2. kids will remember which cup is theirs!!

I have been livvvvving in these joggers, love them so much I bought a second pair.

My favorite clean, organic self tanner (and sunscreen!), a summer must have!!

Lots of you asked about my swimsuit on Instagram the other day, it is currently 40% off!! These are the high waisted bottoms and this is the ruffle top!! It runs true to size & is always my go-to swim pick!!!!

The s’mores cookie recipe that I butchered. They were still good, and I’m sure you’ll do a better job!

Need some new Summer entertainment for your kiddos? A few current faves: this watermelon slip n slide, classic hippity-hops (fun to do outside in the grass through the sprinkler!), and my girls all time favorite, loom bracelets!!

Sort of ironic given the state of the world right now, but I love love love this doormat and it’s on sale right now.

Need some 4th of July entertaining ideas, find them here!!

Happy weekend, friends!! XO
