These Are a Few of My Favorite Things

I feel so inspired this week. I came across several things for our home that I fell in love with.
(On a side note...Our house is pretty much finished, in terms of decorating and accessories. We just need to get a couple of slipper chairs (one for the living room and one for the master bedroom), patio furniture, and a headboard/foot board for the master. I know that sounds like a lot, but it's really not.)

Back to my favorite things that inspired me this week... We purchased these curtains for our guest room. I love how bright, clean, and crisp they are. They bring such a natural element to the room. I'll post pics of the guest room as soon as we get them hung.

We also found curtains for our living room at Pottery Barn. I'm thinking we will order them sometime next week! They will match everything so well!

I love these His & Her pillows from Ethan Allen. Not sure if I will buy these because they are burlap and we don't really have a burlap-y look in our house, but who knows, maybe I can find a way to use them! I adore them!


What inspired you this week?

On June 10th my sister Lindsay (whose blog can be found here at Woods Life ) and her husband John had their first baby.

Hudson was welcomed into this world at 5:16pm weighing in at 7lbs and 9oz at 19 inches long.

He's so precious!

Me, Jonathan, and Hudson!

Precious family of 3!

Jonathan and I were so excited to be able to be there with them and share in the amazing experience. I can't wait to see this little guy grow and experience life! He is so loved!

Just a Glimpse

We've been in our new house now for 5 weeks. 5 weeks today to be exact. Time sure does fly by! I still don't have all the pictures of the house ready to post yet, so I thought I would just post some of my favorite areas of the house. Enjoy!

Breakfast room

Formal Dining Room (aka my favorite room in the house!)

This last picture was taken before we had bought out breakfast room furniture. The breakfast room is to the right where Wrigley is standing. I like this picture (even though it is not much to look at) because you can see how open everything, yet at the same time each room still has its own identity.

More to come later!
