Fave Pinterest Friday!

I’m so glad today is friday…why you may ask?? Because we have dinner plans with some friends. They are cooking for us and I’m salivating just thinking about the delicious burgers we’ll be enjoying thanks to our talented chef Mr. Haack. I’m also looking forward to meeting new friends at this dinner party! Estoy tan contenta que hoy es viernes….por qué, se preguntan?? Porque tenemos planes para cenar con amigos.  Ellos van a cocinar y se me hace agua la boca con solo pensar en las hamburguesas deliciosas que vamos a disfrutar gracias a nuestro chef talentoso el Sr. Haack.  Tambien estoy emocionada de conocer a nuevos amigos en esta cenita.

Can we still be friends?

{image via/imagen vía: BLIPPIT}

Please forgive my absence…..this is how I feel right now. I’m going a little bit crazy. I’ve had 2 big orders, packing up my house, driving all over, trying to sell our furniture, starting to say goodbye to friends….it’s all taking it’s toll. I promise to try and keep you in the loop.  We intend to document the move. Please be patient. Thank you!

Por favor disculpen mi ausencia….así es como me siento ahorita. Me estoy volviendo un poquito loquita.  He tenido 2 pedidos grandes, empacando mi casa, manejando por todos lados, tratando de vender nuestros muebles, empezando a despedirme de amigos….me esta afectando.  Prometo tratar de mantenerlos al tanto.  Estamos planeando documentar la mudada.  Porfa sean pacientes. Gracias!

Wishing, hoping, thinking and praying

As of this week our future move has become more official/real: we’ve given our 30 day notice that we’re moving out. So, God willing, we’ll be gone in slightly less than a month. I’m nervous, happy, sad, scared and excited all at the same time. Basically I’m a complete emotional mess. Over the last month I’ve been daydreaming of what our new place will be like, and in hopes of finding ideas I’ve been hunting online for cool room pictures and home ideas….. and of course only manage to find spaces I can only dream of having. Every now and then I find some things and spaces that may be possible…..here’s some of my favorites today.

I love some of her accents like the side table and lamp and her bookshelves. She also has good ideas for small spaces, so I check her blog often.

I love this little corner!

I love every room in this house!


We can all dream right?

Mirror, mirror on the wall….

Ok..so it’s not a mirror it’s a frame, but it could be a mirror!!

I’ve had this Ikea mirror looking frame for a long, long time (more than 2 years) just sitting behind some furniture.

I’d wanted to paint it for a while now, but didn’t until this last week and now I LOVE it!! I used a gold spray paint and I also painted the glass with some chalkboard paint just for fun.  Maybe someday I’ll make it a mirror.  Isn’t it awesome?! I put it in the kitchen/dining area at the perfect height for self notes or love notes to N.

My husband and I love going on all sorts of picnics. So much so that we travel with our picnic blanket. We even had a fun picnic in front of the Eiffel Tower!!! After which we noticed that the Parisians really know how to set up fancy picnics on a daily basis….and we also noticed their super cool roll-away picnic table. So once we got back we decided to get one and I’m super excited to say we got this one yesterday at Crate & Barrel it’s called Table in a Bag…..and we LOVE IT and can’t wait to use it!
