Man, i had no idea how hard it was going to be to get back into posting. i took this pic two weeks ago and had every intention of plopping it right on my feed. and then life...and then i forgot 🤷🏻‍♀️. .
.
anyhow, a friend of mine gave me that christmas cactus in the corner. it is ginormous. she sort of tricked me. she had her husband send my husband a picture of it asking if i wanted it. my excited plant loving self immediately said “yes!!!” about 30 seconds later i realized that the picture was taken right in front of their couch, and, uh, the cactus was the same height as the couch and about 3 feet wide 😬. crap. so, now i’ve got the biggest christmas cactus i’ve ever seen living in my already too full (for me) house 😆. i’m going to break it apart one of these days and give pieces to friends. until then...

Hellllloooo!!! i’m back! did you even notice i was gone?! i decided to take some time off of insta over the holidays to sort of catch my breath/regroup/figure out why i was on here in the first place. i think i found myself really enjoying gaining a following and then disappointed in myself when my account wasn’t growing. and all of that totally sucks because that’s not why i started this account. for those that have account growth as a goal, awesome. good for you. i just want this to be a fun outlet for me and i like that i have a little audience to bounce ideas off of (i’ll have a poll in my stories about that buffet wall there shortly). anywho, i took off some time and really enjoyed it. i also found that i had so much more time for everything else. time that i could really use since late winter/early spring is my busy season trying to wrap up projects before the building season starts.
long story short, i’m back. i don’t know how frequently, but i’ll be here. i’ve missed you all!

I’d planned on doing a little holiday baking in here this year, but i’ve already decided to go on a diet and the holidays aren’t even over 😩🤦🏻‍♀️. i think it was all the yummy food in seattle. oh, and my parents sent us a package that is waiting for me to pickup at the post office and i’m pretty sure it’s full of cookies. my dad bakes the best molasses and snickerdoodle cookies you’ve ever eaten and they usually give them (those and choc chip...and sometimes my grandma’s monster cookies) out every christmas. i kind of want to leave them at the post office for a while, but my dad has been tracking the package 😆! .
.
.
who else is with me on the yummy food ban?!!

Good morning friends! i’ve been in seattle all week, hence the absence on ig. i just flew in yesterday morning and hit the ground running prepping for my daughter’s dance winter showcase. i’m about ready to head out the door to be a dance mom, but wanted to share my mantel/stocking styling tips along with a few other gals. i’ll also be sharing a bit on my stories, so watch me there!
hop on over to see how these lovely ladies display their stockings:

Still can’t even begin to tell you how happy i am about how this bathroom turned out. this is still an iphone pic, but a friend lent me a real camera to try out. i’ve messed around a bit, and what a world of difference it makes! i need to get a tripod and figure out how to get the pictures from the camera to my phone so i can upload to ig (or upload from computer to ig). baby steps. .
.
.
also, i remember some of the gals finishing the one room challenge saying they were going to go drink their coffee or eat their lunch in their completed room. i totally want to do that in here, but i think that’d be a little weird 😆!

Did a little repotting of plants this morning. it feels like i’m constantly repotting something. is this what it’s like to be a plant lady? this is all fairly new to me 😆. oh, and who knew it took so long to water them all?! i haven’t landscaped one bit at this house, but did at the last...and i’ll tell you, watering outside plants is way less time consuming!

next chore this morning: cleaning bathrooms 😩. the worst. that and folding laundry. not sure which is worse. seriously considering hiring someone to clean my bathrooms and mop my floors. what’s your least favorite chore? do you hire help for cleaning? .

Breaking up the home decor feed a bit to share this regal fella. he sits so perfectly all the time. you should see his walk. he’s got the most perfect gait ever. don’t even get me started on his coat. it’s the prettiest, flowiest, silkiest coat on a golden retriever i’ve ever seen (he probably should’ve been a show dog)! but, alas, he’s a complete and total goofball! his personality totally does not match his looks. he’s really not a manly man at all (we had a golden who was) and he’s so pretty that we sometimes call him princess. or fabio. .

I love that my 8-yo daughter is as opinionated about decorating as i am. i hate that she doesn’t share my same opinions 😆! it is fun to watch and listen to her rationale about why she does things a certain way. like her little white house and bottle brush vignette you see by the brass lamp? i’m not sure if the objects could be smooshed any closer together or the trees arranged more perfectly. i think i tend to arrange things a little more casually/organically. but you know what? the kid loves to decorate for christmas so i let her. .
.
.
what about you, friends? do you let your kids do the decorating or do you hold your ground and do it yourself? or maybe you’re lucky and your kids don’t care 😅?

Hey, hey! it’s fwineday! i got home from the gym this morning and thought about all the things i need to finish up for work. then i remembered that i worked until 8pm last night and my husband went hunting today. so s***w it, i’m taking the day off (mostly) and dinking around at my house. i just went out and cut some hemlock and blueberry bush branches for that always empty vase right there. next i’m going to deal with the garland that is sitting on my porch waiting for me to do something with. question for you all: do you soak your garland, let it dry, wilt-pruf it, and spritz it everyday? last year i hung it and did nothing...then hated myself because it made such a mess. or are you a genius and bought faux? .
