And now I want more pink.

Why I now definitely, positively want pink curtains in our family room. {I need this to happen} Specifically, the fabric below (dangerously available and not ridiculously priced). And why I now want to paint more rooms pink (that part won't happen - our kitchen is already pink).  I thank Katie, who sent me the link to this house. :) I can just see these pink curtains, all sidled up to our Christmas tree, brightening up the room.  

Despite the fact that I absolutely love white furniture and whites and grays and burlaps and wood and all things simple and modern and country all the same, it turns out I can never seem to resist color and pattern.  I want things to be so perfect and matching.  But I have given into the fact that my house will naturally always look as if a 5-year old little girl came in and threw up her most favorite possessions and colors all in one room.  Which is what is happening now.  I can see it now before my eyes.  For example - on my coffee table - my favorite classic blue serving bowl, filled with classic-colored felt pinecones (Parents of toddlers, don't fill bowls with ornaments.  Bad things will happen.  Trust me.), then added to silver tinsel and hot pink puffy pom-poms?  What?!  Yeah. Oh, well.

And on that note, glorious pictures of that beautiful pink-ness of a house, all from Young House Love {post here}.  I also like the owner's blog, where she talks about her inspiration and art, and where she got the colors for her walls.

  2. Oh my yes please please can I have those yellow and white upholstered headboards! When I saw this room on YHL I'm pretty sure I felt actual pain there were so many beautiful things I wanted to recreate :) One day when there aren't little needy folks climbing all over me all the live long day I'll have time to make the rooms I live in cute again....
    Also, did you see the glass lamps she filled with little toys (cars and such) in her son's room??!! Becket would be just as excited as me about that :)

HAIR.

You guys.  These are by far these worst videos ever made.  Yet I made them.  That's your first piece of information.  Second - why?  Why on earth would you post these silly, low-quality videos? I've had some people ask about my hair recently, specifically the waves/curls I've been doing. And, we've all talked about getting together, but sometimes it just doesn't work out.  So, here you go.  I can't wait to get my first thumbs down on YouTube.  Also, I am completely aware that there are much more important things going on in the world right now. 🙂
The main product that makes the difference for me is my curling iron, The Beachwaver (I use the S1 most of the time, S .75 less often).  I swear I'm not trying to sell it. I just really, really like it.   I realize it is a lot of money for a curling iron, so it's an investment (the 20 % off coupons from Ulta apply to this product when they're available and you can apply for their points system - I got min…

Current clothing faves.

Regular blogging, she said, right?  Whoops.  Seriously...I'm trying.  I swear I'll get more consistent.  Anyways...  
Madewell is killing me right now.  The idea of spending more on maternity clothes that won't fit in three months is too much to stand, but I am still running out of stuff to wear, so I decided to try some things on the in the store recently (Holla - store close to home!) and holy cow, they are winning this season.  Madewell is one of those brands that I find doesn't look as cute on the website or hangers as it does in person.  Here were my favorites...Some outer layers to wear over maternity tanks and tees and then a few other tops that can expand. 

This long cardigan.  I typically don't wear long cardigans because of my height, but this one seems to work - I think it must be the weight.  

Look at this you guys.  You are wearing a sweatshirt.  But you look like you are wearing a structured jacket.  BOOM. 

This shirt is incredible. Works with a belly, bu…

The move.

We've had some questions over the past few weeks as to how the adjustment is going for us.   And I kept meaning to write about it earlier, so here we go.  With a smattering of very high quality photos (kidding). 
Overall, we are doing well.  This is not to say we don't miss people, that everything is absolutely wonderful all the time, etc.   Change is really hard, but it is so good, and so stretching for our lives and our faith.  So, good is my overall answer.


Eloise at the Circle. 
For those of you who don't know the whole story of our move, I'll give you the shortest version possible.  Last fall, Zach was offered a hospital medicine job in Southern Illinois (he had been working at his old engineering job the first few months after graduation from PA school).  This decision was made after much deliberation and prayer and applications were sent out just about everywhere (seriously - we were open to anywhere).  The job in Southern Illinois made the most sense and we de…
