My Spring Wishlist

It’s currently snowing here in Colorado, but I’m dreaming of summer. I know, I know, this says “Spring Wishlist.” Colorado doesn’t have a fabulous spring. Much of it is cold and windy, with occasional warm days sprinkled in here and there (just enough to tease you!). And we can get snow through May, so you just don’t know what the weather will really be like. Crazy. I still love it. But I’m definitely dreaming of summer and warm weather and sunshine. Lots of sunshine.

Here are some of the things I’m dreaming of…

1. This J.Crew lingerie set (found it on Pinterest, no link!)

2. This Rebecca Minkoff clutch

3. This Oasap dress would be the perfect pool cover-up

4. I’m in love with this pink Marysia bikini. In. Love.

5. These adorable little zebra flats would make me have happy feet! (Again, found on Pinterest with no link. Apologies!)

Image

6. This Thug Life (Etsy) T-Shirt explains my life so well. I’m definitely a “hangry” person.

7. I was inspired by this gorgeous pink bathroom. I love color, and I have no doubt in my mind that my future home will have lots and lots (and lots) of color.

8. This creative and clever vertical kitchen storage from the lovely ladies at A Beautiful Mess. I am never short of amazed by the things that the staff comes up with!

Well, that’s all for now. I guess I’ll just keep dreaming of long summer days as I sit and watch the snow plummet to the earth. I’m so not a winter person.

Picks from Pinterest

Hi friends! I’m starting this new series called “Picks from Pinterest” to share some of the amazing things I’ve pinned recently. I love Pinterest, although I didn’t get really into it until I bought my iPad this summer (is it just me, or was Pinterest made for iPads?). Most of what I pin are home decor, DIY projects, sewing tutorials, and recipes, but I occasionally stray to other things!

Here are the Top 5 pins of the week:

1. DIY Beehive (In a Jar!):

This adorable project from Remove and Replace would be an amazing addition to a backyard–I love bees, and I think it would be so cool to have more of them around! I shared this DIY with my mom, and she plans to build it for their yard this spring.

2. Sally’s Baking Addiction Skinny Raspberry Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins:

These muffins look easy to make and oh-so delicious! I’ll definitely be making them in the near future.

3. Top 6 Easy Vegan Super Bowl Snacks:

Because today is the big day (Go Broncos!), I want to share these yummy vegan snacks from Ordinary Vegan–they look really tasty, especially the cauliflower wings and the roasted garbanzo beans. They’d be a great addition to any party (or just for dinner!).
