{Yellow = Spring Color Crush}


When I don't have my camera I feel like I'm missing an important part of me. I forgot my camera at my parents house over the weekend so I have not been able to take any pictures since last Friday! I hope to pick it up in the next day or so!

Until then..... here's an adorable picture I found on Pinterest. I want the dress she is wearing! Yellow is definitely my color crush for spring!

I decided to wear a floral maxi skirt even though it is still pretty cold and rainy in Portland, OR. I wasn't sure if I should but once I put it on I decided it's never too early for a cute floral maxi skirt. Don't you agree?

My hubby and I spent Sunday at my parents house. These are a few silly pictures of us. I really really really love this man...

Last night my hubby took me to a cute little restaurant in NW Portland called Meriwether's Restaurant. The food was delicious and learning about the restaurants history and sustainability was also fun! One of the things I absolutely love about living in Portland, OR are all the amazing restaurants and eateries that we have!

Thank you everyone for all the sweet birthday wishes! I had a very special day!

All Things New Sundays - Valentine's Day Edition

Valentine's Day is on Wednesday so with that in mind I was in the "LOVE" mood and created a little Valentine themed decor for the home:
IMG_6191


You will need:
IMG_6141

Step 1: Wrap the letters in yarn. You want to wrap the letters both vertically and horizontally so that all of the space is covered with yarn:

Step 2: After covering with yarn, use the craft glue and let the glue dry for about 20-30 minutes:

Step 3: Decorate your home!

The nice thing about the yarn colors I chose is that this craft can be kept up anytime of year, not just around Valentine's Day!

Happy Sunday and thanks for stopping by!
