Friday Favorites!

Happy first day of SPRING!  Woohoo!!  Although I do have more updates for you guys (I know it’s crazy how much is getting done now), I have some other fun stuff I want to talk about too so here we go:

Favorite Moment:
My favorite moment this week was finally feeling better, which wasn't until yesterday!  I was down with the stomach flu Sunday through Wednesday and I don’t wish it on my worst enemy.  So happy to be feeling my normal, healthy self!

House Updates:
You may have seen my picture of the kitchen back splash which I am so in love with.  Also the trim is going up where it can and the master bath tile is really coming along.  Joe said that was the most tedious and most difficult job of the entire house because of all the lining up and cutting that they did.  He created a lot more work for himself by making every single tile line up, but it really looks beautiful!  This weekend the plan is to finally paint the last 2 rooms, the laundry and powder room and get the tile down in those rooms.  We are inching closer and closer to occupancy!

finally that cabinet that was the wrong finish was replaced!

backsplash is on and looking amazing!

I have to admit, this is just stunning!

bench in the shower

shower tile really coming along!

love our decision to go with the rustic looking trim!

Favorite Recipe:
I haven't made this yet, but I thought it sounded light and springy!

What I’m looking forward to:
Dinner Friday with friends at a local Italian place is first up, followed by an interview Sunday with our local newspaper!  That’s right, a friend of ours writes for our local News Tribune, she asked me if we would be interested in interviewing for National Infertility Awareness Week (NIAW) next month and I, of course, jumped at the opportunity.  If you guys remember we did that taped interview a few months ago with SIU, things are going in a little bit of a different direction with them, we are making that a long-term relationship where they highlight our milestones so that process will be taking longer than what we had originally thought.  I’ll be sure to post the link to our news interview next month though.  NIAW will be April 19th-24th and this year’s theme is “you are not alone”, a notion I can fully embrace.

Happy Friday lovlies!
