Lily’s going to the middle school “party” tonight @sloclassicalacademy (called a party because some people are afraid of a dance 💃🏻 😂). They are supposed to dress up from a decade in the 1900’s - Lu chose the 90’s. We leaned towards the late 90’s: my old overalls, Birkenstocks with socks, flannel around the waist, baby tee, black choker, big hoop earrings, plum lipstick, scrunchie in her half-up hair (with whispies pulled down on the sides, of course). I’m a little jealous. I never looked this good in the 90’s!

Colors have always been “my thing”. Choosing fabrics to go together was my favorite part of my business years ago. Helping clients choose paint colors is one of my favorite jobs now!
Currently, I’m helping a couple with exterior colors for a funky 1960’s apartment complex, trying to modernize it, but still honor the 60’s vibe.
White for the stucco, a rich grey for the shingles, and black for all the trim. Swipe left to see the possible door colors ✌🏼.

Outfit of the day, pretty much on repeat. Between spring break, packing the house, and running the kids around, putting extra thought into what I’m wearing is not feasible. At least I’m dressed. #itsthelittlethings

There really isn’t a filter that makes moving boxes look pretty. Yep. Moving boxes 📦. Our lease is up in our rental house and we have to move into another until our home is built. Our home that we are still waiting on permits for. #imgettinggoodatwaiting

We had a beautiful Easter today - church, hike, slowly prepping yummy food (all from @theforestfeast), and sharing that food with friends and family. God is good and He is risen!

We’re on the long 7 hour drive home, but it is so worth it for the great weekend we had snowboarding! Vacationing with kids becomes easier and so much more fun the older they get! (Thanks @snacker & @mrssnacker for the invite!)

A new view for homeschooling today! ❄️📚❄️📚❄️

These 2 cuties are headed to the father/daughter sock hop @sloclassicalacademy tonight 😍😍. Sean is basically super dad, knowing he’s going to be ditched pretty quickly for 12 year old friends and cotton candy!

I chopped my hair today! I’m guessing maybe 6” or so. It still feels long but it’s a big change - I love it! Thanks @lainiethiessen - you always do a great job! Check out my stories for before, during and afters.
My hair has been so many lengths throughout my childhood and adult life - pixie to super long and everything in between! Do you like to change up your hair, or does it freak you out?!

I’m an online window shopper. I like to look, add to my cart, then hardly ever buy. The fun of shopping without the guilt of buying!
I’ve compiled a handful of my favorites for spring on my blog today (all the links are over there... link in my profile). What about you? Do you like to window shop online? Or prefer to in real life?

I couldn’t fall asleep last night until nearly 2am, so when my cozy bed called to me this morning after dropping the kids off at school, I answered with a “YES!” I’ll be eating bonbons and watching soap operas for the rest of the day if you need me. That or doing taxes and meeting with our accountant and running errands... #samesame #adulting
