Weekly Wears: Let's Get Casual

Weekly Wears Weekly Wears Weekly Wears Weekly Wears Weekly Wears
I'm finally getting out of that winter-time clothing funk.  It happens to me every year.  Once it's been cold for a while, I find myself wearing the same round of my warmest tights and Johnny's warmest sweaters.  Spring has popped by and said "hello" a few times recently and I'm finding myself WANTING to get dressed again.  This getup wasn't really intended for an outfit post, but I figured-- hey, why not post a day-to-day outfit?  I honestly wear the same necklaces and glasses most days, carry the same purse regularly, and wear my hair down until the weather warms because I'm a baby when it comes to being cold.  But, you know... that's real and I'm sure lots of you ladies are in the same boat with me!

I've been working on a few new DIYs to share over on ABM in April and I'm excited for you guys to see them!  Thanks to all of you who left sweet words on my home tour.  I shared those rooms over here one-by-one, but it's fun to see them all together.  I hope your week is off to a great start!  xo.

I seriously can't believe we're already well into March!  I feel like these early months of the year are just flying by.  We've been keeping busy with various home projects (like always) and mapping out what things are important for us to accomplish this year.  I'm currently in the process of getting myself back to regular posts on ABM, focusing more energy over here on my blog, and planning out local plant and flower workshops I'll be hosting in the next few months.  I'm liking these goals so far!

I had the opportunity recently to go in and style (and help model in) a commercial shoot for SnackCrate.  I'll be interested to see what they do with the photos.  We were aiming for really fun and over-the-top images, and the photographers we were working with were great!

Hope has finally finished up her competitive season of gymnastics.  She really killed it this season.  How can someone make an aerial look so effortless?  Sheesh.  Oh, and if you asked me to do ANY of the stuff she does on beam I might literally just run away.

Other than that, I'm working on getting better at propagating plants, spending quality time with my people, and enjoying this new small kitty we've adopted.  You know, the usual.

I hope you are all having a great March so far!  It's snowing here today, but my fingers are crossed for warmer weather on Saturday.  Our band is supposed to be playing an outdoor concert.  Yikes!

Welcome to Our Home: The Music Room

Skunkboy Music Room Tour
In our last house, we would often have to set up band practice in the middle of our living room or bedroom.  It was kind of a bummer considering we basically had instruments everywhere, and it made my house regularly feel like chaos.  Here in the Jefferson house, we finally have a music room!  Oh my, is it ever a God-send.  This space goes from lovely to looking like it exploded weekly, but it doesn't matter because it's all contained!  Chaos out of sight = Katie's brain works better

I'm so thankful to have this space!  I've worked hard over the last year to make our house feel cozy and this helps that so much!
