I jumped on the trendy-colored-pants-bandwagon today! Nick picked them out because I don't wear a lot of color. I took way too long getting ready this morning trying to figure out what to wear with them for work... and then the thought occurred to me - are my kids going to giggle at this someday? Because I doubt this will stay in-style forever. They'll ask me what was I thinking as I show them pictures, and I'll have to say (much like a certain mother-of-mine has told me before), "It was the style! Everyone was wearing them!"

Feelin' Crafty

This cold winter has prompted a lot of spring cleaning around here. And for me, being stuck inside all winter, I've been slowly turning our little apartment into a more pretty place to live. And I'll be honest, most everything I've made in our house (besides our Boston-lettered wall hanging) has been inspired via Pinterest.

The dressers my brothers and I grew up using - turned into ombre dressers! Inspired by this

And I hung up the cross-stitch of Nick and I. Inspired by this

A new addition to our colorful kitchen. Inspired by this

And our new favorite addition/investment to our house came from Ikea. We went to the store to get this scarf hanger:

And came home with this:

A bed frame!! We are no longer sleeping on mattresses on the floor. There's something about building our own furniture that makes me feel like a grown-up. Definitely the best spontaneous purchase we've made in a while!
