Friday Loves #23

Hey- hey, it’s Friday! Filling you in on some of my Friday Loves for the week!

Friday Loves

1. Harry Potter Marathon. The last few weeks we’ve been hosting a Harry Potter marathon with our camp interns and last night we finished both Deathly Hallows movies! So good! And I really need to find some spare time to read the books.

2. Paint colors. I think I mentioned how I’ve been searching for the perfect paint colors for our house and I thought I would share what we’ve chosen. I’m excited to share the whole tour when the house is ready, but for now here are the colors we chose.

Cool neutral paint color scheme

Clockwise from top left: Silvery Moon, Sweet Bluette, Iced Cube Silver, and Uknown White with Pink Undertones (I forget this ones name, but I think this color is a good representation). The darker gray (top left) which is still pretty light will be in the living room and dining room. The blue is for the kitchen and entry.  The lighter gray/silver is for our bedroom and the stairs. And the white with a touch of pink is for Layla’s room.

3. Decorating Changes. We are switching over from our living room being browns, reds and golds to cool grays with light aqua and pops of fun brighter colors like peacock, navy and yellow. Here’s an inspiration look…


And here’s another from Young House Love: (Who are done blogging for now? I feel like Domino magazine died all over again.)

Except not that much yellow. Just a little yellow. :)

4. Enjoying long fall walks while we can. It’s gonna be frigid again soon! Not that I’m complaining–I hate when people complain about winter being cold like that is some extraordinary phenomenon.  Winter is cold.  If you live above the Mason-Dixon it’s really cold. If you want to live where winter is warm there’s Florida, California, Texas and uh, the whole world south of the equator. End rant.

5.  Keeping up with Layla. Little miss is all over the place. She is eternally curious and now that she’s started pulling up along with crawling I feel like no surface is safe. It’s gonna be fun!


Those are my Friday Loves this week!

What are you loving this week? Are you a Harry Potter nerd? What do you think of my new house look? Have you ever completely switched up your colors? 

Linking up to some great linkups today–check them out here!


Layla at 8 Months

8 months…I can’t imagine our lives without this little lady. She is completely amazing and being her mama is such an incredible gift. At 8 Months Layla… Is crawling. Crawling! For real, up-on-her-knees moving and grooving! Has pulled herself up and is so proud of herself of her accomplishment. Life is changing for sure and we are re-babyproofing even more […] more

Apples All Day!

This post is sponsored by Foodie in participation with Mode Media. Hey guys! I’m teaming up with Foodie again this month to share a collection of recipes featuring fall’s most beloved fruit…apples!  I love a good apple-crisp and juicy, and just a little tart–perfection. Apples are great by themselves, but they are also an amazing compliment to so many other […] more

This week the topic that Jessica selected is Candy Craving Crushers–how to be smart about eating candy and other treats at Halloween. So I actually talked a lot about this last year in my post How […] more

When You Need a Break

Hey there!  Happy Monday! So this past week I’ve been on a bit of a break. I find that after a few weeks (6ish generally) of working out 5-6 days a week and really “getting it” I go through a slump of sorts. I’ve called it a lot of things…I wrote about it here: Move Forward {Out of the Slump} and again […] more
