Happy Valentine’s Day my friends! Hope everyone has had a wonderful candy and flower filled day. I have received neither and I am 110% fine with that! Haha well, chocolate would be nice BUT I made the absolutely horrible decision to give up sugar for Lent. Yes, please kick me now. I am a mere 8 hours in and I have a headache and could seriously use a nap right about now. As you may remember, I have given up sugar before (read about that HERE) but never for 40 days. The most I have gone is 28 days and I honestly felt AMAZING by about day six but it’s still hard as heck. It’s such a crazy thing for your brain to continuously tell you that sugar will make you feel better and give you energy yet in reality it’s absolutely horrible for you and always makes me feel so much worse. Mind over matter baby!!! Oh and about the flowers… I literally BEG Mark every single year to not waste $100 on $15 flowers simply for this day. Not. Worth. It. And yes, I totally say I don’t want things when I really do… you know those crazy mind games us women play… but this is honestly not one of them!
Today I am popping in to share my new favorite piece of furniture EVERRRR!!! I became mildly obsessed with this bridal rug settee probably like two or three years ago but never really had a place for it and didn’t really want to spend the money on it. I thought it would be one of those things that I LOVED in the moment but would maybe grow tired of after several months or so. But no. Still as obsessed as ever. So I ordered it. Still without really a plan or place for it. But y’all know how I am anyways. Let’s just say that furniture and accessories never get bored in our home. They get moved around quite often so I am sure this will be the case with this piece as well. Foyer today and bedroom tomorrow? Hehe okay no, definitely foyer for a little while at least. And no, it doesn’t block our front door at all although it may appear that way here. It falls riiiiight before the edge of the door past the sidelights.
Oh and if you’ve been dying to see more cabin updates, they are about to be coming full force! We are headed up this weekend to start furnishing and accessorizing. All of the lighting fixtures are installed as well as the vent hood and backsplash so I am excited to see what all has been done since I was there last. And of course excited to share it with all of you!
