Three Things I’m Loving Right Now

Each week on my favorite podcast, Jamie Ivey’s Happy Hour, she asks her guests what three things they are loving right now.  Every time I listen, I think, “How would I answer that question?”  Well, today, I thought I would share.

  1. To begin, have you ever followed Young House Love?  They were some of the earliest home & DIY bloggers, their newest book (Lovable, Livable Home) came out recently, and they also just updated their website (which is huge if you follow them because they quit blogging about a year ago!!) Well, they have a new video spoof on their website and as a fan of both Young House Love and Real Housewives, it makes the top of my list. I give you The Young Houseloves of D.I.Y….

2. The latest issue of Better Homes & Gardens.  I mean, just this beautiful cover alone is enough to make me want to paint something in my house this gorgeous deep teal color.

 And then on the inside, an entire home designed by my favorite, Lauren Liess.

There are way more pictures on her blog and in the magazine.  She does such a mix of traditional and modern and she uses so many organic elements.  I love the layered rugs and the use of blue in this home too, my favorite color.

 Also, in this same issue (I promise I’m not getting paid to sell this magazine to you, haha!) we get a peek inside the home of Jessica Honegger, CEO of Noonday Collection.  Do you know about Noonday?  Its one of my favorite places to shop for jewelry.  You can check it out here. Very cool to see her eclectic and globally inspired home in the pages of such a popular magazine!

3.  Tissue paper banners. After my confession last week about how much I dislike seasonal and temporary decorating, I have another confession to make.  I was actually in the middle of creating a tissue paper banner for a baby shower I was hosting.  It took hours and I almost quit because as I made each individual tassel, I was thinking to myself, “this is going to look awful.”  But when I finished and put them all together?  It was like magic and I think I am in love!  This one went home with the mommy, but I really think I might start making these for all parties, seasons, and occasions, I am just so in love with it, ha!   Definitely worth the time it took for me.

I layered this striped paper banner from Target over it.  That part of it is not hand made though I did stamp the baby’s name on it.

    1. As you already know, I’m loving reading Livable Lovable Home. I just love their humor & highly recommend the book.

    2. I’m loving how Shutterfly offers me a free gift almost every other week. I’ve gotten playing cards with my family’s photo on them, a personalized placemat for my daughter, an emergency numbers magnet for my fridge, address labels, etc. The only bummer is I have to pay $7.99 shipping each time.

    3. I’m loving watching my 8 year old & 5 year old sons take a hip hop class together. It is seriously the highlight of my week. I’m that crazy mom with her nose pressed up to the viewing window the entire hour long class. It’s the funniest, best thing to watch!

    1. I’m loving some deep friendships that i have with three ladies where I live. They are such good friends who are challenging and kind and that I just SUPER love spending time with.

    2. I am loving Holy Yoga (holyyoga.net) and Revelation Wellness (revelationwellness.org). I’m doing the videos, because the classes aren’t offered where I live, but I just love how the word is taught and spoken over you while you’re working out in the yoga and rev well is so fun.
    There’s a free six song workout tomorrow at 8 am on Periscope (which, by the way, I’m also loving). Follow Alisa Keeton or Revelationwellness…both are good, but the workout is prob on rev.

    3. I am loving this bible that my friend says she’s getting me for Christmas from Illustrated Faith, because I am a doodler. (Illustratedfaith.etsy.com).
