Cheers to another Friday! As usual, I am sharing my favorites of the week and I am linking up with Erika, Narci and Andrea for Friday Favorites. We spent most of the week getting back into the groove after our spring break trip. I’ll share a peek into our last few days and some of my favorites of the week.
Our D.C. trip was the highlight of our spring break week! We spent three nights in the city and we certainly covered a lot of ground (quite literally)! Washington, D.C. is a walking city! Yesterday I recapped our trip including our highlights and some of our low lights as well!
If you are planning a trip to D.C. with your family, I hope I was able to offer you some tips and things to consider! For those who have been with the family, I’d love to hear about your favorites!
We Were the Lucky Ones
I had the best intentions of doing a little reading on our trip, but it didn’t happen. However, this week I just started reading We Were the Lucky Ones. If you liked The Nightingale, you will love this one too. I can not put this book down and have been trying to squeeze in five minutes here and there to read a few pages when I can. I hope to finish the book this weekend!
WWII books are intense and emotional reads, so sometimes I need to read a light book after reading one of these! Send any suggestions for something light and funny for me to read!
Decluttering My Closet
In case you missed my post, on Monday I shared my organized (small) master closet as part of the Clear the Clutter Challenge. I am so relieved to have my clothes organized for the spring and summer months! I let go of a lot of clothes that I had been hanging on to (even though I probably would never wear) and it feels so good!
If you need a little push to get your home organized, join our Clear the Clutter Facebook Group! We share tips and ideas for getting your spaces clean and organized!
Spring Tiered Tray Style
This past week I took down all of my Easter decor and have kept things simple and clutter free around the house. In my galvanized tiered tray, I swapped out my Easter decor with some springtime items. I was stuck on what to add to the tray and didn’t want to go to the stores for anything new. So real fruit and veggies to the rescue!
It’s always a home decor win when you don’t have to spend money to style a space! I’ve got some fun and functional ideas on how to style the tray for summer, so stay tuned!
Signs of Spring
Yesterday was a beautiful spring day and we took full advantage of the afternoon.
We put up our favorite tree swing!
Some of us roller skated and created some sidewalk art.
These activities are sure signs of spring!
Finally, I’ll end on sort of funny and sort of “sad” note! A few weeks ago, you may remember I DIY’d some terra cotta pots and added some indoor house plants to warm up our home! Well, upon returning from our trip, we found that one of our lavender plants did not survive! Perhaps I am not the #plantlady I had hoped I could be:) Maybe I should stick to faux plants?!
Our other plants are looking great thankfully! But I’ll need to find something new for this particular pot. #sortofapinterestfail
The weather is perking up here in Ohio, so we should be spending some time outside this weekend! Hope you have a great weekend and see you back here soon!
