05.17.13 / Five Things

Friday seems like a good day to be spontaneous and step off the beaten path. I’m going to try sharing five things on Fridays. They might be five things I do every day, five things I would buy if I won the lottery, five things every stylish house should have, five things in my wardrobe, five things I’m good at, five things I’m awful at, five things I love to eat, etc. You get the idea. So, here we go.

I have not been a very good pinner. My pinterest account was lacking. But if I had to choose one thing to fall by the wayside, I would choose pinterest over my kids, piles of laundry, blogging, a DIY project, sleep, New Girl and wine. Yes, those are things that have been preoccupying my pinterest time. Sorry pinterest.

A little over a year after welcoming #3, I finally feel like I am starting the slow return to normal. Whatever normal is. Is it just me or does it take longer to find “normal” with each sequential kid? #3 was a doozie for me. My worst sleeper by far. But the good news is she’s developed into a great little sleeper {hallelujah!} and she’s pretty much the cutest thing ever {I might be biased}. And, yes, those two things go hand-in-hand. The better she sleeps, the cuter she gets. So keep sleeping, pretty girl.

Anyways, I found some time last week to update my pinterest boards. I deleted some {goodbye pregnancy} and added others {hello shelf styling}. They are by no means a done deal but they reflect my style much better. I want to keep curating and adding as I discover inspiration online and now I have a good foundation to do it. Here are five things I added to my pinterest boards.

I love the feel of that living room. Simple and laid back. The modern cabin on stilts is HH’s and my dream abode. Emily is so good a creating little moments within rooms. I wouldn’t be upset if that wood and wenge bench decided to take up residence at the foot of my bed. And the literal indoor/outdoor mat puts a whole new spin on “cuttin’ a rug”.

What have you been pinning lately? If you want, you can follow my continued pinning efforts here.

I have been getting so much inspiration from your recent pins! I’ve been adding some to my little curated collection! So I guess a “Thank You” is in order? :)

I noticed your resurgence into the Pinterest world and I’ve loved what you pinned. I even got some new ideas thanks to one of em!

And yes you are biased, but your little girl is still the cutest thing. ever.

If you guys ever find yourself in north central Washington, you could stay at the Rolling Huts (also designed by OK and near the cabin). The site was zoned for mobile homes, hence the “rolling” component. :)

Oh Lauren, that would be our dream vacation! The boys enjoy camping but I prefer not to sleep on the ground. The Rolling Huts seem like the perfect compromise. Putting it on our ‘places to go’ list. Thanks!

i love it! i actually have a {five things} series too! i use the same platform — five things about whatever i want! five is my lucky (and favorite) number, so that was how i started it.

i LOVE following you on pinterest. it seems that just when i’m thinking about a certain style or am questioning if something would look good, you go and pin it! =) so i’m a frequent re-pinner!

I laughed when I saw the picture of the cabin, it looked just like the Rolling Huts – I knew it had to beethe same architect. We are actually staying in the Rolling Huts this summer for our 15th anniversary.

I don’t understand pinterest enough to try to stay on top of it. And with my third son turing 4, I FINALLY feel like I’m getting a handle on this three-kid thing!

I’m so envious of your upcoming vacation! The Rolling Huts look fun and cozy – and quite affordable.

Hi Dana, the spice rack is undoubtedly the best spice rack design i have seen in my life, i have only seen one similar but was alot smaller. i thought i looked cute but never quite set it up in my own homes, however the fact its not just in a standard block with a black backboard makes its stand out so well.
Good post,
Jen
