5 Things

Do you ever feel like your weeks seem infinitely longer after a vacation?

Yup, that's this week.

I spent 4 glorious days disconnected from all social media, lounging around, and eating way too much junk food. So as you can imagine, jumping back into a full-blown craz-cray work week was quite the shock to my system.

Needless to say, I am beyond ready for a leisurely weekend... hollatchagirl!

1//  Holy Remodel!
Beyond excited to show you progress on out kitchen makeover. Making HUGE progress! Despite the super sexy 1970's mustard yellow counter tops still in place, the freshly painted cabinets/walls and new hardware have our place looking snazzy! Next up... granite, sink and back splash! Photos coming next week... stay tuned.

2//  Sneaky Girl
While hubs was out of town on business, I spent every single evening painting our guest bathroom (which would've been our weekend project). Poor guy has been working so hard, so i wanted to surprise him with a relaxing weekend. Needless to say, he was pumped (or as pumped as someone can be after traveling all day and finally getting home at 1:30 a.m.). Wife points for the win!

3//  I. Need. Sleep.
I don't know why, but every time he's out of town I stay up until midnight or later doing the most ridiculous things (like painting our dimly-lit guest bathroom). This weekend will be full of naps, naps and more naps. These dark circles sure don't lie.

4//  Cultural Weekend Adventures
Tonight we are catching the latest installment of the Starlight Music Theater season... FLASHDANCE!
Never seen the movie. Have no clue what it's about, but I've heard that everyone you look is Broadway singers in the world's tightest spandex. Good thing we have close-up orchestra seats! ;)

Heading out to the KC City Market farmer's market tomorrow morning with the parents. I fully plan on indulging in some locally brewed coffee, fresh wild flowers, tons of produce, and perhaps I will browse the delicious homemade goods that the sweet Amish folks tempt me with.

5// A Million Trillion Thank Yous

I had so many overly kind comments, e-mails, and tweets about Wednesdays post, Embracing Imperfection. Those words came from my heart, and it's such a blessing to know I am not the only one out there who struggles with this. Beyond thankful that it provided encouragement to those of you in the same boat - xoxox!

In Case You Missed It...

What are you kids up to this weekend?

Make it a good one!

  1. Yay! I can't wait to see what you have done with the kitchen! So much fun. And girl, I give you MAJOR kuddos for tackling the bathroom on your own. I am paint challenged so to speak. I think it is sooooo sweet you wanted to surprise him with that :) Happy Friday! Hope you get some good sleep this weekend.

  4. I have been enjoying your kitchen sneak peaks on Instagram and can't wait to see it when it is finished. Looking good so far! Hope you had an awesome, relaxing weekend :)
