It has been a work in progress for a while now, but we are happy to report that the front living room & dining room have finally been painted!! Farewell, tan walls! I will not miss you! I am obsessed with the difference the grey makes (the color is called Simple White by SW) & can’t wait to finish the room! I bought that Caroline Wright canvas a few years ago & have always wanted to design the room around it, it has just taken much longer than expected. I am thinking instead of the mirror on the wall, which was too bulky for that space, that I will hang a long photo ledge & put some artwork and a smaller mirror in it’s place. What do you think? I do love how a mirror opens up the room & brings in lots of additional light, but this was definitely not the right one.
We are in the middle of a light fixture DIY that I hope to have finished tomorrow & can’t wait to share pics when we hang it!!
We took Eloise back to the doctor, her eye was completely healed, thank God! Hopefully Edward scissor-hands will be a little more careful about eye-poking her sister from here on out.
Brandon took the day off yesterday to make up for some of his crazy work travel lately, it has been really hard on him being away from the girls & they have missed him tons. And I was so happy to have what felt like a three day weekend! We made an early morning trip to Target, always a complete circus, but the girls were loving the new cart so they were surprisingly chill while we got some groceries & picked up some birthday party supplies. In the afternoon, we took the girls to play & pick out books at the library & then met friends at our favorite BBQ place for dinner. It was insanely cold but that was not about to stop us from having our much needed family fun day! 😉
Wildest hair award goes to…
Our friends at 7A.M. Enfant sent us the most amazing stroller blanket, which I am completely obsessed with! They fit right over top of any stroller or carseat, allowing the straps to pull through openings in the back side of it & then they zip shut in the front. I can not get enough of that neon pink. Eloise was all smiles despite the freezing temps, nothing like getting a little sunshine in the middle of winter!!
Hope you all are staying warm. Happy Tuesday! XO16
