Hey guys! Welcome to another Friday Feels where I share what I’m “feeling” this week. This post contains affiliate links.
This week I’m feeling ready for summer! I just received the new Homes on the Water magazine in the mail, which features our old home across the lake. Charlie insisted on posing with it.
1. It’s so fun to look back at our old house. 2. It’s making me SO ready for summer weather and swimming. 3. I can’t even handle how little my kids are, I think they were 3 and 6 in these photos? All the tears…
You should definitely pick this magazine up if you see it on newsstands. It features some amazing homes – I was so inspired after flipping through it! Also, sneak peek of my mini bedroom makeover…in love with this blanket on our bed.
Speaking of my kids growing up, the Mr. and I were out to dinner with friends last Saturday night and I received this text from my now 10 year old who was home with the babysitter –
Tomato, Tom-ah-to! I could not stop laughing. I like to blame the Mr. for her smart-alecky-ness, but the truth is she didn’t stand a chance with the two of us as her parents. In her defense, we do have a babysitter named Anika and a babysitter named Amelia. They both have dark hair, so I guess I can see her mix up?!
Oh, and if you need a good screen time monitoring app, I use Parentkit. It allows me to turn off all the apps and internet on her iPod from my phone. But it still allows her to use the text and music functions. It’s been a lifesaver, so I don’t need to worry about her sneaking extra time on her device.
Also, I’m like this close to finishing up her bedroom, finally! My fantastic mother in law worked her sewing magic for a new canopy above her bed (more on that soon). Her new bed came this week from Wayfair and she loves it. I bought her this one during the Way Days sale, but it’s still such a great price point.
I also picked up a few accessories like this basket and this faux plant and cross your fingers, I’m hoping to share this next week on the blog (if I can get her to pick up her piles of dirty laundry first.).
Or maybe I’ll just share it in it’s full on garbage pit glory (Pinterest cover your eyes!).
I also have some changes planned for our living room including this giant coffee table I snagged during the sale.
I’m really excited to replace this round one, because our new couch is much lower than our old one and the round coffee table is not comfortable to plop your feet up on. I’ve already cut the legs down once and I don’t think it will survive another surgery. Even though I do love it, the scale isn’t quite right for this room.
I can’t wait to have such a giant surface to style, plus the extra storage underneath will be so handy.
