Inspire Me: Bathrooms

I'm back for Gussy's Inspiration Workshop!  This weeks prompt is bathrooms.  I knew right away exactly what I wanted to show you!

I think this wallpaper was one of my very first pins.  Besides dinosaurs, sharks and whales are some Ivy's favorite animals.  For like all of her life.  I know she's a crazy girl but thats what makes her so fun. And wouldn't that just be awesome in her bathroom?!    So fun.

Gone Swimming

Summer is in full swing around here.  Hooray! We have been spending our days with cousins at the pool and enjoying the warm weather that has FINALLY come our way.    Summer is our fave and it always seems to be so short, so Ivy and I are trying to make the most of these couple short months and savor everything that summer and the sunshine has to offer.  I hope you are all doing well and I'll check in again soon!  

{ Maybe I'll even show you how to make my fun swimsuit rack!}

Oh and just in case you didn't know...


I will!  Will I see you there?

Insta Friday

Oh Hello there!  I'm linking up with Jeannett and a bunch of friends for Insta Friday again.

  Here's a peek at what Ivy and I have been up to this week...

 Ivy doesn't take naps unless she is strapped in to something like her carseat or the bike trailer.  I guess the farmers market wore this little lady out last friday.  But really I think its the staying up late to watch SYTYCD that did her in.  

We have been waiting all spring for the kids TOMS to arrive at Greenies.   Everything is cuter in Tiny.  Especially Toms.  They are the perfect park shoes. We tried them out at three parks in one day so I'm pretty sure you can take my word on that.    Mamma got a new pair too.  How can a turquoise lovin girl resist bottle green?!  Seriously.

We've made a couple of Cakies tents for birthday presents and we finally took the 15 minutes needed to finish our own.  So dreamy for reading books outside and eating fudgecicles.  I think vintage sheets are the best way to go to get the maximum sunshiny fabulousness of these tents.

We hit up the library and came home with no less than 20 books in our book bag.   Ivy is hooked on Ladybug girl {and Shel Silverstein}.  She came out of her room ready to go to the park all in red and her fairy wings.  She looked at me and declared "This is a job for Butterfly Girl!"  You know since she didn't have spots on her wings.

Apparently Spring didn't get my letter about not bringing the wind with her.  But we make the best of it with our princess kite and some green grass to lay on.  I keep reminding myself that it is STILL spring after all.  

Happy Friday!

Inspire Me : Green

Linking up again with Gussy for her fab Inspiration Workshop.  Its not to late, come join me!

Our peas are growing up so big and strong.  Ivy is like a proud little mama.  We water and check on them every day and talk about what makes them grow.  This summer is full of adventures for this little girl and I can't wait to sit on the back patio and eat our yummy peas.  So...

Please Pass the Peas!

I heart peas.  They are my favorite vegetable.  {Asparagus is a close 2nd}

Inspire Me...Kitchen

Today is Inspiration Workshop day!  The theme this week is kitchen.  And truthfully?  The kitchen is so NOT on my project list.  But can I show you what I would la la LOVE my kitchen to look like?  

 Is anyone else totally enamored with these colors right now?  Orangy, corally red, aqua and white?!  SO bright and happy and cheerful.  But can I just tell you that Pinterest is no place for someone playing the Game On Diet?  I finally had to get off before I found myself in the kitchen making some tasty treats.  

Something like

these.  Or

these.  Even

some mini fruit pizzas.  But those will have to wait another 3 weeks!

Anyone else ever played The Game

Inspire Me: Handmade

I signed up yesterday for Gussy's Inspiration Workshop.  Have you signed up yet?  I'm a little excited.  Ok really excited for this fun project!  Since I'm a little late to the game I turned to my pins on Pinterest for some handmade inspiration {the first prompt of the workshop}.  Thanks to my awesome parents Darin and I are kid free for a couple of days so I'm hoping to get in some quality crafting time this afternoon.  Maybe I can cross some of these must make now things off my list!

DIY bag sealers.  So easy and a fab scrap buster!

Isn't that the cutest ruffly thing you ever did see?!

I'm doing this to my burlap toms when they are all frayed out.  No question.

I need to make this now even though we are so close to summer.  Otherwise I won't be prepared for next summer.

Cornstarch and fabric. Lovely love.

  After 10 years {our anniversary was yesterday!} with the hubs  I know how really true this is.

Whats on your must do list?!
