I haven't wanted to post pictures of the new digs yet because we are still getting settled slash I am not finished decorating. If I had unlimited funds I would definitely be able to wrap up this little project in no time, but we are slowly getting there. I am not talking about our "some day down the road" plans, there are still many items on my immediate list of things to do before I will want to share pictures. The main thing which I can cross of my list, is a new refrigerator! My love for good appliances is no secret, so when we purchased the house I knew the refrigerator was one thing I could not live with. I know that sounds silly, but literally the fridge that came with the house was not even as tall as me, it came up to my chin. Jack could open it, and would every chance he could. So you can imagine my excitement when my appliance buddy called me and told me they had a great Viking fridge on mega clearance because it was being discontinued. When I say mega sale, I mean mega sale, we scored the fridge at 70% off the original price. That explanation didn't quite sell the Mr., his response is always "I don't care how much it used to be, how much did we spend on it?" Men... Was I supposed to say no thank you we actually can't afford it right now, I will keep my mini fridge and purchase a pad lock for it since Jack is growing accustom to sneaking in for snacks? To make a long story not as long, we had our new fridge delivered yesterday and I am one happy camper. It's amazing what a beautiful shiny new appliance can do for a room! Here is our new fridge, along with some other fabulous kitchens that boast dreamy appliances.

The Lilly Pulitzer for Target Look Book is live and it is getting me so excited for Spring! I don't know what I love more, the collection of Lilly items for the Home or the assortment of swimwear and dresses for toddler girl's. If I had a beach house I would buy the 9' patio umbrella in a heart beat along with the coordinating hammock, however, I am going for a totally different look on our patio. Think more French bistro meets wine country than Palm Beach Chic. While I probably won't be purchasing anything from the Home section (except maybe these bad boys,) I will be rocking my sweet little girl in Lilly all summer long. Happy Spring you all!

Baby B is not due until June, so I know I have plenty of time to get her
closet room together, but I am feeling a little behind lately. I finally picked out a her crib and and a rug so now the fun begins! I chose a blue leopard print rug, which will be the main pop of color in the space, and here are a few blue and white inspiration photo's I am loving lately. Happy Monday!

Last Thursday we had freezing temps and 6 inches of snow fall on the ground... flash forward one week to today and it's all melted, and my entire yard is a mud pit. Don't get me wrong, I am soo happy for warmer weather, but I can't keep up with the dog towel laundry lately. All I have to say is thank the Lord for the fact that we have a mudroom. I never thought we would be in a house now, let alone one that has a mudroom so I shouldn't really be complaining about the weather. Our faux wood mudroom floor has held up so well with all the mud and water being tracked in over the past month. I am so happy with our decision to turn that random room into the most useful room (other than the kitchen of course) in the house. If you do not have an entire room to devote to a mudroom, a small wall or corner of your foyer can do the trick. Here are some great mudroom solutions I have seen lately, some of which are as simple as purchasing a piece of furniture from Home Goods or Ikea and hanging a few hooks on the wall.
