Hello, friends! Currently Dale and I are enjoying a week in California but I couldn’t let that stop me from sharing a few of my favorite finds this month. This month began with a bachelorette party for my friend Steph in Lawrence and was followed by weekends with family, the KC Design Week homes tour, a couple of workouts at Fusion, Game of Thrones (!) and finally an anniversary party for our ten years of dating! I also really loved taking Adobe’s Creative Type Quiz. I’m a producer, “the quintessential “doer” of all the creative types.” The whole description made total sense and I loved being able to take a personality quiz that really focuses just on creatives.
I’m obsessed with these patterns by Charlotte Bolton!
A great article about leadership
Beautiful floral illustrations
Marisol’s home on Design Sponge! I loved having the chance to get to know her when she worked at Hallmark.
A great quote about Spring, all the flowers this month were my FAV
An interesting read about meritocracy
The perfect Summer drink!
My favorite recipe we tried this month! I will admit we did add hamburger buns, but it felt healthier all the same.
Cinco de Mayo is right around the corner, loved this inspiration if you are celebrating!
No Rain, No Flowers!
Hello, friends! December is always a whirlwind and this month I was extra grateful to be able to spend so much time with family and friends. We celebrated my mom’s birthday, I went to a gingerbread decorating party, went to several other holiday parties (including one with Dale’s co-workers, an ornament exchange with college friends and the Jingle Ball), and ended the month with all our traditional Christmas festivities. I also love all the holiday inspiration around the web this time of year. While some of these finds will have to be put on hold until next year they are just as lovely!
First up, this adorable A-Frame DIY. Definitely on the list to make for next Christmas!
Also, these cookies.
One of my favorite Christmas presents I received. Our kitty Otto has been extra ornery lately, only fair to warn visitors.
Hoping to make this recipe with the pecans I received this season from my mother-in-law.
My all-time favorite pants in a new pattern.
Already re-labeled all my spices with this handy label maker!
Loved this article, Dale and I watch Love Actually every Christmas Eve Eve when we exchange our gifts.
Just what I need to head into the new year.
Maybe Miami needs to be on my travel wish list for 2019?
This recipe is one of my new favorites, easy and healthy.
