Weekend Love

Friday, February 24, 2012

Well, I've now been battling what I'm calling a "weird cold" since Sunday.  It feels as though it's lingering, but not really getting worse.  All I want to do is curl up in a ball in bed....something I very rarely want to do, so that's how I know I'm not feeling like myself.

Oh well, this too shall pass.

One thing that is making me smile everyday is seeing this sign outside our house.  Yes, indeed.

We sold our house on Sunday, five short days after listing it. Everything was finalized on Tuesday.  I can't even tell you how thankful we are.  The market here is pretty hot, it is definitely a sellers market, we are so lucky.

Now we move onto searching for a home in our soon to be new town.  I'm always on MLS checking to see what's new and can't wait to see which house we'll be calling home in a few short months.  Totally exciting.

And now, I shall go and sip some tea and catch up on blogs.  I wish you all a lovely weekend!


Embrace Colour!

Friends, how are you? I'm sorry, I really didn't mean to neglect you, but things have been absolutely insanely busy here the past week.

I will update you as soon as I can with all of the goings on with the house.

In the meantime, I wanted to share this Target commercial with you.  I only just saw it for the first time yesterday and absolutely loved it!

I think it's time I share a song....haven't done that in a while.  This song is used to celebrate the re-release of Lady and the Tramp.  I absolutely love it, just makes me smile!

I don't often play around too much with hair styles.  I'm not quite sure why that is, it's almost as though I don't think of it really.

So I decided to change it up a little bit last week.  Nothing too crazy, but something different than just wearing it down, or pinning back a few strands.

blazer - old navy
tank - gap
necklace - forever 21

So, how about you? Do you style your hair differently everyday or every so often?


Recap: Decor Purchases (With The Help Of Instagram)

Wednesday, February 8, 2012

Last week I took some time to write out a list of items I wanted to buy to stage our home for when it goes on the market. I love love love to shop for the home.  I now have a clear plan and shopping list to keep my head from spinning!

Here are a few of the items I picked up via instagram (gotta love instagram you can find me under the name elliven).

 decorative grass for "his" bedside table

vase and florals for "her" bedside table

a few items that turned into....

this and....

this (this one is now in the downstairs bathroom)

a few floral touches

new iron decorative wall hanging (walls to be painted a slightly lighter colour)

I purchased the iron wall decor and the last set of florals from Pier 1, all other items were purchased at the Superstore.

I'll continue to share pics here on the blog, so stay tuned!

Hello, hello! How was your weekend?

I find myself gravitating more and more towards chunky and layered necklaces. I've fallen head over heels for Lauren Elan's necklaces.  They are perfection!

I've been playing it a tad bit safe lately when it comes to my wardrobe, so on this day, I went for prints along with a bright & bold necklace.

top - jacob
necklace - le chateau
watch - baby-g


Last Week.....

Thursday, February 2, 2012

After several years, I finally found a perfect use & place for a crystal ashtray that was handed down to us.

cuddled up with my one of my loves 

rocked one of the comfiest pairs of boots I own 

patched some walls (apparently the boys think that walls are barriers that need to be taken down)

washed the walls

and painted the walls (how do you like my painting pants?)

then I rewarded myself & the kids (for being so good while I painted) with some take out!


What's in the bag?

Wednesday, February 1, 2012

Thought I'd take the time do the infamous "what's in the bag" post!

Sooooo, here we go!

1 - the lovely Coach purse that hubs bought me for xmas (love the grey interior)
2- my new "Little Pink Book" a place to write my notes
3- iphone sleeve (made by yours truly) and iphone
4- epipen incase someone tries to feed me peanuts (yup, I'm allergic)
5- delicious watermelon gum
6- make up bag (full of mac lipglass!)
7- trusty wallet
8- ipod
9- yummy smelling hand cream
10- granola bar (you never know when hunger will strike!)
11- antibacterial wash
12- pen

I don't switch purses all that often, maybe once or twice a month and it's probably because I'm a tad bit lazy, but we won't admit that (wait, just did, didn't I....).

Hope you enjoyed this edition of "what's in the bag"
