(baby waiting for dada)
Happy FriYAY everyone! It’s a rainy one over here but no worries, be happy right?! Another crazy long week in the books. And we were even able to sneak in a tiny date night baby-free. (thanks Obaasan 🙌)
Alright so this week it’s been more decisions decisions decisions. Do we buy a king size bed, do we not. Do we demo the kitchen now or later? Will my car start or not? Um yea that happened. In the midst of doing 1 million things, my car decided it didn’t want to start. No big deal right. Oh and this was the day I had tennis lessons too. Awesome!
Luckily contractors extraordinaire Baby Poppy and I got it solved woot woot! Also we got a new mirror in the half bath. YAASSS! Seems small but let me tell you the old mirror in this bathroom was so gross! I mean you touched it and the paint would just flake off. Also it was some weirdo fake material. New mirror check! Now just need to paint the walls. Going with a dark half bath since there is already white tile in there. Pretty pumped.
In other developments, baby is a pro at going up the big stair case 😱 Of course she doesn’t know how to go down them, but we will work on that another day.
Weddings! One of my best friends in the whole wide world is getting married and I could not be more excited! It’s crazy when something so special happens to a close friend, you get so excited that you feel like it’s happening to you. And I have not met her man in person yet. My plan when we do meet is to scare him with our weirdness. Because when my friend and I are reunited, the weirdo-nerd in us comes out. Ha lucky guy! Do you become someone else with your close close friends? I just think I get so comfortable with some people, that my freak flag just hangs way out.
Tonight will be a night of pizza and Zoolander II! Yes finally! We are so behind on movies. Basically with a baby you lose the ability to go to the movies so Redbox/Netflix have become our best friends. I’m sure the movie will be dumb as rocks but I’m sure I will love it. My movie philosophy is “anything that is funny or anything that has Will Ferrell in it… I will LOVE.” And I mean any movie paired with homemade pizza made by my pro pizza-making husband is pretty awesome!
As for our normal Sunday morning tradition of slow living with a fun breakfast and CBS Sunday morning, this weekend we are going Bagel style! Last weekend we treated ourselves to Mojo Monkey Donuts. Holy donuts, they are incredible! Seriously! And I don’t even love donuts that much but their Tres leches one and the chai donut holes were spectacular.
I love this little family tradition. And in our new place since we still have not set up the basement cinema, we are actually doing it in the basement bedroom. A really cozy plush room that is always slightly chilly and perfect for watching the big scream. So armed with our breakfast treat, coffee and PJs, we setting in with pillows and blankets enjoy slow Sunday mornings.
Update: I have not killed our first plant yet! Yay me! Spike lives. Woot woot.
Alright next week the demolition finally begins. Our master bath is going to get a much needed makeover. Here is the before. And hopefully in a few weeks I will share the after. Wish us luck! Well mostly to our handy man AKA the hubs.
Last but not least, Sweet Poppy Seed has some exciting news! Check it out! Notice anything different? NEW LOGO BABY! Created by the UBER-talented Dani from Olio. Not only did she design a super cute perfect logo with colors that on point but she was able to capture the spirit of Sweet Poppy Seed with her design genius. Take a look and let me know what you think! I’d love to hear your thoughts!
You will notice a trend with the links this week…. Enjoy.
This looks divine! Salt and vinegar rock my world!
Excited to add one of these walls to the kitchen. Perfect for notes, lists and baby doodles. #100 on the to-do list.
My fav to-go snack is a handful of walnuts and dates… so this snack is totally my jam.
Novelist Emma Straub’s Sunday… This is totally real life and sounds an awful lot like ours.
Ohhhh Spring books! They sound intriguing! Now I just need to find time to read.
Looking for inspiration for painting walls this summer. Loving these 2-toned walls.
I want shelves! Trying to get cool ideas like these.
Finally got ice cream here! And OMG it was wowza amazing!
I want this romper… and a trip to the beach please!
Favorite site of the week: Local Milk. So talk about photography skill envy. Beth has some of the best photos in the business and her props, plates and styling is gorgeous. Pair that with amazing photos from retreats that her and her hubby run around the world, and it is easy to get sucked into this site. I personally love her Snapchat because she is sharing day to day in some pretty great places… like Spain right now. Also she is going to be a mama! You go mama!
