Jen ~ burlap & sea  • simple + neutral + pretty • renovating our so cal fixer upper home • slightly obsessed with dogs + cupcakes • dm to collaborate

I’m just over here trying to complete some looming goals and projects so I can start 2019 anew. Anyone else rushing to get projects done or are you waiting until after the holidays?

Thinking of all our firefighters and first responders as they continue to put out the worst fires in our state’s history. My heart continues to go out to all those who have lost loved ones, pets and homes.
Today in San Diego, we are on high wind advisory and extreme red flag warming until tomorrow night.
To all my CA friends, please stay safe. ❤️

Sorry friends, this previously posted without a caption. Thanks @thesanerhouse for letting me know.❤️
.
I had something written but I’m guessing the Instagram algorithms didn’t find it all that interesting 😂 so I’ll keep things simple this time.

Have a great night friends! . .

Happy Sunday!
Halloween is packed away (not that there was much).
I went to two yoga classes this weekend (for the first time in at least three years) and squeezed in a two mile hike.
And we just had a lot of trees removed from our backyard so now we have a view of the hills near our house. Yeah!
I have to say, it’s been a good weekend.
What is everyone else up to today?

Sometimes we all need a little IG break.
Step back from the algorithms, the numbers game and everything else that can really affect you....if you let it.
I took a step back for a little bit.
Enjoyed my real life. Focused on me. And caught my breath.
Anyone else ever take a step back every once in awhile?
It’s ok, all will still be well when you return. ❤️

Remember when you were a kid and thought you could jump from cloud to cloud or better yet, sleep on one?
.
Now that I painted our bedroom white, I feel like I’m sleeping in the middle of clouds. It makes me so happy and I’m wondering what took me so long to do it. (Although I’m guessing laziness might be one reason 😂)
.
Do you have a project that you’ve been putting off, but you know it’s going to make you so happy once it’s done?

Today’s 70 degree weather is one of the many things I love about San Diego. It’s perfect!
.
Since we have such great weather here most of the year, I’ve been thinking about some upcoming outdoor projects and it’s a lot to undertake. In the coming year (dreaming here), I’d like to replace our fence, remove unnecessary landscaping, put some fresh plants and fruit trees in and paint the house. Since I haven’t won the lottery yet, the hubs and I will need to do a lot ourselves. I’m pretty sure we can paint our home’s exterior although we’ve never done it.
.
If you’ve painted the exterior of your home, do you have any tips/advice? It’s a ranch style home so there won’t be too much climbing, thank goodness!

Meet Quinn.
He’s a total stinker, a total goofball and always has a serious look on his face. We love him.
.
For those that don’t know me, I’m a huge animal lover. We have adopted many pups over the years, of all ages and all stages of health.
We adopted Quinn almost two years ago and got to meet his litter mates and his (black lab) mom too (prior to us adopting him). It was the first time our kiddos chose a puppy and it was so special.
Swipe for another photo of the big guy.
.
Your turn....tell me about your fur baby(ies). If you don’t have one, do you want one?

Happy Monday Friends!
This is how we decorated for Halloween over the weekend, along with a few pumpkins and hanging bats outside. I know, it’s probably on the boring side for some of you. I like to keep things pretty simple when I decorate for the holidays. Less stuff around helps me feel calm and I don’t have to store very much.
Having said that, I do totally love seeing everyone else’s fun decorating (I live vicariously through you all ❤️)
How do you decorate for the holidays?

I can’t believe we are coming up on two years in this house. It’s definitely been the OHC (one house challenge). We’ve renovated every room (one partially) from floor to ceiling. We’ve painted, mudded walls, removed wallpaper and flooring and the list goes on. It’s all been totally been worth it and honestly, I’d do it again!
Check out our half bathroom that we renovated several months back. Swipe ⬅️ to see what it looked like the day of our inspection. .

Sorry not a decor post this time.
.
Truth.
This summer I hit my highest weight ever. What did I do about it? Nothing.
I was too bummed with how I looked that I did my best to cover up and not wear a swimsuit in public. I avoided the issue altogether.
A few weeks ago, I couldn’t take it anymore. Avoiding mirrors was becoming too stressful. I was already giving away clothes and not buying new ones. I was also hearing about too many people becoming ill from an unhealthy lifestyle.
I didn’t want to be that person. .
What am I doing about it now?
I’m slowly making changes...eating breakfast, exercising, smaller portions, etc. The things that should become part of my everyday life. Not a fad diet.
Why am I telling you all this?
I want to be held accountable. I want people to know we all go through periods of time when we aren’t our best. And maybe you/someone else is going through the same thing. We can support each other behind the scenes.
.
If you want to share any health and/or fitness tips or advice here, I’m sure I/we will love it! ❤️
