around these parts....

Oct 2, 2015

fall style
Does anyone else feel like they have accomplished so much just by making it to Friday? Because, I'll tell ya, I could have thrown in the towel on Wednesday! The child attitudes in the house were on fire this week, and the snow falling outside did nothing to cool them down. I am fully blaming the change in sunlight. I too have been in a funk. It is so much harder to wake up without that glorious light beaming into my room. Every year I forget how the sunlight really does effect me. It's time to up the vitamin D, and pull out the Happy Light.

What else is going on around these parts? OH! I am finally, yes finally getting my hair done this weekend. That is unless Chris gets called into work....again. At which point I will just give up, because this hair appointment has been months in the making. First I just couldn't decide what I wanted. Then I couldn't decided who I wanted to do it. I mean I am not really attached to my hair, but I don't want to be walking around like a clown. So I have done my research, on instagram mostly. And can I tell you, that is the way to go! Hair dressers will post their hair skills, and basically you can determine whether or not that is your gal. So, fingers crossed I picked a winner! 

On the blogging front this week, I am loving this post on removable wallpaper. Since I refuse to really put a lot of time and effort into this house (I know...I'm a brat) I'm looking ahead for ideas for our new house. Yes, it will be a rental of some sort, but I will at least be able to have options and choose a house that I really like, and will like decorating. 

I also made this salmon recipe this week, and ri-dic-u-lous!!! I omitted the things that weren't whole30 and it was still amazing!! A must try. 

Pretty sure I want my table to be adorned with this tablescape for all of fall/winter/forever. So easy, and so beautiful!! Not to mention Micheal's is having some killer deals on Fall decor, so I am headed back there to get some sunflowers, and some greenery, and maybe a basket or two!

Lets talk shop shall we? As in shopp-ing. You guys, I have been in non-stop sweater buying mode. is a sickness. I bought this fringe one from Shopbop. This sweet lace up number from Asos. This beautiful colored wonder, followed by this turtleneck goodness from Forever 21. Must stop buying sweaters like now. 

Speaking of Shopbop, they just released their Principle Denim Collection. I am loving all the different styles that they have pulled together. Classics mixed with some more trendy styles of denim. And in my opinion, you can never have too much denim!

I think that is all I have to say....Odette is pulling the plug on this post. Actually she is pulling at my shirt, but same thing. 

What are your plans for the weekend?


  1. Yes! This week has been almost torture. Elsie got her first cold and the nights have been sleepless. Tgif.

    1. Oh no!! I hope she feels better soon, and you get some sleep!

  2. It must be a crap week everywhere then! It's been raining almost constantly and I've been hit by some stomach thing that has seriously knocked me down for the count. Just hoping it goes away soon and that no one else gets it!

  3. Fingers crossed that your hair appointment happens!

    1. I know!! I am getting nervous since his week has been less than stellar! Ahhhh!

  4. I saw that sweater at F21!!! Francesca's has a similar one that my mom bought (and I'll be borrowing) so cute.
