Three Things on a Thursday

Hi everyone! Happy Thursday! Hope you’re having a great week.  Just popping in to say hi and share a bit of life lately!

First up, I know the last time I was here I was talking about boy rooms, but oh how easily I get distracted! Now I’m thinking about girl rooms!  When we moved in, my daughter was still in her crib.  Then shortly after, we got a new mattress and she got our old mattress so it could double as a guest room for family that was coming in town.  I never really “designed” her room.  It just sort of came together with what we had.  Now that the baby is getting older and will be in preschool next year, I’ve been thinking about projects around here I’d like to tackle- one of them being some updates to her room.  I’m thinking maybe about painting, possibly some wallpaper, and I’d love to put a rug in there as well.  She’s also in need of a new dresser as the one she currently has is falling apart.

After researching wallpaper, I came across this fantastic room by House Seven.

Its actually a peel and stick wallpaper from Chasing Paper.  So fun, right?  Here’s a little mockup showing how I’m envisioning my daughter’s room.


I’m just in the dreaming stages, but I’ll keep you updated!

Next, one of my favorite bloggers is on a four month road trip!  Do you follow Emily of Jones Design Company?  She and her husband and four kids just left for the journey of a lifetime across the country! I sort of feel like I know her because I’ve been reading her blog for so long (that’s totally not creepy, right? haha!), so its fun to live vicariously through her posts on the blog and instagram for me and see this great adventure unfold!


Lastly, its almost Mother’s Day, and I just finished this parenting book by Kristen Welch.  Highly recommend if you have children of any age.  She’s relatable, funny, gives practical advice, and challenged me in a good way.  Plus its one of those with a pretty cover… I love books like that.

That’s it for now.  Hope you have a great weekend and Happy Mother’s Day to all you moms out there!!
