Happy Monday?

Well, it was a Monday for me. After five days off, it's back to the grind. Ugh! There's nothing worse than reality hitting you smack in the face after a long weekend of family, friends, cooking, relaxing, watching movies... and ignoring all responsibilities whatsoever. But, I did accomplish one thing today - a list of blog posts that must happen soon! I am so bad at getting all of my posts to you that I promise, like the Before and Afters of the Cape Cod. They must be revealed before I can show you any of the renovations at the new house. Oh and might I say, I hope everyone in Canada had a great long weekend...

Anyways, as I recoup from a dose of reality today, here's a few pins that I've been eying up lately, okay they're from my "text." board, but still inspirational and hopefully enough to get my butt back into gear and getting my products on the etsy shoppe before Christmas! Enough babbling, hopefully you can find some inspiration or truth to some of these:

I absolutely love the last one! Live every day with intention. Now, I must go finish reading the rest of my advertising and promotions text book. Only three assignments and an exam away from being finished... and then I may never look at a school course again. Have a great rest of the week and hopefully you had a great Wednesday!

Me and My Pinterest... The Nursery

Just when I thought things would slow down... we got a puppy! I will be posting pics within the week! In the meantime, I thought I'd do one of my favorite posts, what's up on my Pinterest. The other day I posted on my personal Facebook, to get a puppy or not get a puppy... The response was actually not that surprising, many people said have a baby! The hubby and I have been married for two years and together for ten, so we are very used to people asking when the baby will be arriving. And, while there are no plans in the making (heck, we've got our whole lives ahead of us), I do have a Pinterest board dedicated to "when I have kids". So, until the day comes when we actually choose the baby rather than a puppy, here are a few nurserys that are to die for:

Blue Skies Baby Bedding.


Charm Home - Chase's Nursery.

Project Nursery.

Interior Design for the Bedroom.



Okay enough of the baby talk. While I do have a whole Pinterest board dedicated to when I have kids, it's still not time for anyone to get too excited. We are not onto the baby talk yet and don't plan to be for a while. And for those of you have been following my Pinterest for a while now, know that I have had that board the whole time... which I'm sure has been close to a year already. So, it's all in preparation for the day when we are ready. Until then, we will stick to our new puppy Hank, who I can't wait to show you and I'll try and be back tomorrow for a Favorites Friday, but just in case I get caught up in life, have a great weekend out there!

Life in Grace… The Perfect Kitchen!

A kitchen that feels like home. Have you ever remodeled a home and then found something you thought would have been better? Ahh… that's what happens when you stumble upon so many ideas. Well, I have finally found the kitchen that feels like home. If we were ever to build a home in the country, this would be the kitchen.

Life in Grace - The Kitchen, Her Highness

From Life in Grace…. The mix of colors and countertops makes it feel as if it's been there for ages. I am absolutely obsessed with every little detail, the built in hutch, the dining bar with wood countertops and the oversize island. I'm pretty sure I'm in heaven. I'm not quite sure how I stumbled upon Edie's blog, but I just couldn't stop exploring once I had. And, I ended up seeing two more of her kitchens, not so much a favorite like the firsts, but definitely still worth sharing! The character she puts into them makes them feel like home every time.

Life in Grace - Lake Cottage Kitchen: Before and Afters

I was curious. So, I kept exploring. Honestly, I could sit at home and blog surf all day, while dreaming of the perfect home. Waking up in the morning, going for a fun, opening up the email and blogs, then writing and crafting for the afternoon, of course while baking and getting ready for supper. A girl can dream can't she! :D

Anyways, I've been side tracked by my dare to dream life… back to Life in Grace. Here are a couple of more rooms I absolutely adore.

Life in Grace - The Girls' Room

Now, I must get back to renos, work, school and the real life.
