We maaaaaaaaaaaaaaade it!!🙌🙌🙌

The week held some very long hours at my pay-the-bills job and it has made me especially giddy that the weekend is upon us.  Fingers crossed that I can talk Steven into a trip to Ikea to finish some details on our kitchen remodel (EEK!!)

You can check out my original post about the before business here: Honeycomb Kitchen Remodel.

I definitely see a reveal in the near future and I CANNOT WAIT.

I know everyone is excited about this as much as me. (Ahem, just pretend)

So in the spirit of all things lovely and Friday-ish, it felt high time for another All The Things post and I have so many awesome things to show you!

I think I am suffering from home schooling as a child and not having legit Show and Tell. #therapy

So here is my adult digital show and tell to you, my friends!  Enjoy, and make it a great weekend 😊 ...continue reading "All The Things"

We are gettin' all up in my Christmas trip business today because I love walking around taking pictures like I know what I am doing (I don't).

After a cozy Christmas Eve with our Georgia family we set out for Virginia on Christmas day.  And if anyone was wondering, there is ZERO traffic on Christmas day. #winning

Bear with me on the amount of landscape photos-I couldn't get enough!  We joke with my in-laws about their 'estate' because this place has a killer view, thus nicknamed the Virginia Retreat by yours truly.

Feast your eyes on that beauty, friends!

We are getting back into a routine around here, so back to a more food-focused normal posting next week.  You know, if I can actually get some food in our refrigerator and an idea of what to do with it.  All the chocolate is clouding my healthy food blogger vision.
