What a crazy week it's been! Our painters were here Tuesday and Wednesday painting most of our house. My parents watched the boys both days so they were out of the way and I could work while the painters were here. I'm happy to report that Camden no longer has a pink room and our bedroom is no longer a dark brown cave! If you caught my snaps or instastories earlier in the week you saw how light and bright both rooms look now! We landed on SW Popular Grey (which we used pretty much all over our last house in IL) for Camden's room and Bill's office. Our bedroom, master bath and the boys' bathroom is painted with SW Olympus White which is a really light, pale greyish blue! I absolutely love the color! I can't wait to style the rest of our master bedroom and share photos with you all. We also had our kitchen painted SW China Doll, which is a neutral very light cream color. We still have to paint our great room, entry way and hall ways which will be done after we have some drywalling projects to complete in the great room. But, I'm happy that 'phase 1' of painting is complete!

Now, on to 5 things I've been loving this week:

1. When I noticed I was about to run out of my daily sheets in my current agenda, I started searching for a daily agenda pad on Amazon and stumbled upon this daily agenda pad and this weekly pad (which I use now for blog planning). Both of which I am loving! I still use my agenda for keeping track of upcoming monthly events/holidays/birthdays, etc. but, it's so nice to be able to write down my daily to-dos on the daily agenda and then tear it off at the end of the day!

2. As I was searching for the above agenda pad, I stumbled across this weekly menu pad and this 'all out of' grocery list pad! I am loving using both of them and keep them by the fridge for easy access. Bill has been loving checking off the items he wants me to pick up at the grocery store. Now there is no excuse for opening the fridge, staring blankly and saying we have nothing to eat (my pet peeve).

3. I picked up a few new beauty products this week that I am loving. One is the Physicians Formula color correcting CC cream. I got it in the shade 'light/medium' which I wish I would have got the 'light' shade. I think the shade I got is a bit too dark for my complexion at the moment, but hoping that it will work better for my complexion in the summer months. It is a really smooth, lightweight, build-able coverage cream which I love!

4. I also picked up a new bronzer that I have heard nothing but great reviews about on blogs and youtube. It is the Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer and it is definitely worth the money! It is so smooth and creamy and it smells like you are on vacation! I can't wait to use this more in the summer!

5. Lastly, I've been wanting to get a new high chair for Bennett for a while now and had my eyes set on the one from IKEA. I loved our highchair we used for Camden, but it was so bulky and the fabric liner always got SO messy and so annoying to take off and clean. I just wanted to get one that was ALL plastic, easy to clean and had a modern/sleek/minimalist look to it. The one from IKEA has been sold out for a while (at least in our area), so I just bit the bullet and got this one that is similar (and still only $30!) from Babies R Us. I love it! And now that Bennett is sitting up a lot better on his own, it is perfect for him! If any of you are in the market for a highchair, I highly recommend this one if you can't get the IKEA one.

What have you been loving this week?

Happy weekend and happy shopping!


  1. Yay for paint! You know I love Popular Grey so that was a good choice. ;) I still have to try that bronzer, but I'm glad to hear that it's a winner. Happy Friday!
