Friday: Last One for February

Well, it's Friday, and Brandon is coming home today from his business trip! #allthepraisehands


Fingers crossed, our contractor should be able to start work on the house middle of next week, so that's a good sign. As much as I wish I could just tell him to rip out my kitchen while he's in there and give me my dream white one, that's just not in the budget. ;) 
Plus, we know we're moving in about two-ish years, so we are just making the house A) fixed, B) livable just like it was and C) sellable. 

But you can bet your bottom dollar that I'll be getting my dream white kitchen in our next house, just like this one:

So, Walmart for the win! I have always loved the Anthropologie ceramic egg and berry crates, but I just couldn't justify the $12 price tag for something that held six eggs. So, when I found this egg crate at Walmart {that looked just like the Anthro version, natch} I had to scoop it up for just $3.98! And bonus, it holds 12 eggs! 


Why is finding a swimsuit so ridiculously difficult?! I absolutely love the ruffle trend going on right now, but my girls are just too big for a ruffle around my chest; I seriously look ridiculous. And as much as I wish I could wear the cute triangle tops, I just need a little more support. So, I've been on a major hunt for an appropriate, cute bathing suit for this summer that will also work for chasing after two active boys. Here are some I'm loving lately: 




Do these succulent planters not look like they're from Magnolia?! I saw them on Amazon, of all places, and put them on my birthday wishlist. So cute! 


I saw this quote on Pinterest and couldn't love it more, especially as we're in a little bit of "limbo" with our house situation, and it's hard to not feel a little guilty for uprooting our boys, but still trying to maintain their normalcy and schedules and daily life. So, it just reminded me to enjoy this season instead of just wishing these next weeks away until our house is finished. 

Have great weekends, y'all! 

Linking up with: April, Amanda, Andrea, Amy and Katie 


  1. Such great news that your house may be done early! That kitchen inspo picture is soo dreamy!! Both of those swimsuits are adorable but I think you would look so good in the red with your coloring! Have a great weekend, friend!

  2. Oh I love that white kitchen too!! I'm dreaming of changing my counter tops to something white!! Those suits are so cute. I hate bathing suit shopping. That motherhood quote is perfect. Have a great weekend friend!

  3. That red suit and those planters are amazing!! x

  4. That kitchen!! Love!! Great find on the egg holder. I may have to run to my local Walmart and see if they have any left! And those! Uuggh, can't even think about bathing suit shopping yet. Stopping by from Friday Favorites. Have a great weekend!

  5. I seriously love Target's swim selection and what a win at Walmart with that egg holder!! Yay for Brandon coming home today too!! Happy Friday girl! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  6. I absolutely LOVE that Target suit- I think Im going to have to buy it today haha :) Thanks for sharing!

  7. That kitchen is so gorgeous! Target has a lot of suits with built in support, which I love! I still like wearing two pieces, but have started to grativate towards high neck options, or ones that have detachable straps so I can sunbathe but then run around and feel like I'm not letting it all hang out ;-)

  8. JCrew has the best bathing suits! That's almost where all of mine come from - good luck on your search! Have a great weekend :)

  9. We did the same thing with our first house the one we are in now. We are in the works of something that could potentially happen for our dream home, so all the prayers have been in full effect. An all white dream kitchen will happen eventually, girl. I like both off those suits but that red one is a lot of fun! Target is currently having buy one get 50% on their swim. Have a great weekend. Beautifully Candid

  13. LOVE that kitchen - please have one like that in your new house ;) I hope the repair goes quickly and smoothly. Love those swim suit choices - I need to get rid of some excess "love" in my hips so I can wear one-pieces lol! Have a great weekend :)
