Tulips are probably my favorite flower but I have never seen them like this before.
I must visit Holland in the Spring!

I was so excited to see that my Linda & Harriet purchase had arrived
last night when Kyle and I got back from church. Ask Kyle, I was seriously thrilled haha.

This beauty is now hanging delightfully in my kitchen.

I also got really cute birthday cards that were in their outlet sale.
The sale is finished for now but I'm keeping my eye out for the next one!

My New Favorite Etsy Shop!

When this shop opened, it immediately became my favorite Etsy shop of all time.
Sure, maybe I'm a little bias :)
but I think you would agree that Kyle's prints are simply stunning!

Click on over to see more of his pictures.
Soon some panoramic shots will be added so keep an eye out!

I wanna be a runner...

So I started training. There's a 5k on my calendar for May 21st.
Mine and Kyle's lifegroup (a small group at church) is actually doing it so that's been great for motivation ha

Those are my super gorgeous shoes that I got here for supa cheap.
I love a good deal ;)

Anyway, I say all this to explain that new little gadget there to the left.
I'm doing the couch to 5k program. I'm really liking it a lot so far.
Obviously I'm not too hard core. I need to run more often... but I think I'm off to a good start.
And with an awesome running buddy,
(my amazing Kyle :)
and the encouragement from friends that I'm getting, I think I will only see improvement. 
I am so excited about this 5k and running isn't as painful as I remember from the
forced runs our tennis coach would spring on us randomly. 
Jenna, remember those? haha
And I think the couch to 5k program is perfect for me,
I definitely recommend it if you're a newbie like me.

And if you're looking for a little motivation here are some of my favorite blogs to visit:

(never home)maker: A husband and wife blogging duo that describe their site as the fit blog for foodies. 
They share a lot of recipes and I love all their posts on running.

This Mama Makes Stuff: At first I read this blog for the sewing tutorials but now I love all her inspirational running stuff too. My favorite posts of hers is one called I Don't Like Running and I love her marathon recap posts too!

So I've been away forever. Took a little bloggy break and can't promise that I'm blogging consistently now either but I was too excited when I saw this and had to share.
And who reads this anyway? I'm sure no one even noticed I was gone ha ;) except for my lovely mom :)

Lately I've wanted to start a cake stand collection. I think they would look gorgeous sitting on a hutch displayed in our dining area.
 (dining area sounds way too fancy for the little nook in our apartment I'm referencing)
Bakerella has a giveaway going on right now from Sweet and Saucy. They have some seriously gorgeous cake stands! I hope to win to get my collection started wootie woo! We shall see :)
You have until tomorrow to enter by the way

Also, does anyone else read The Anderson Family Crew blog?
Emily has been sharing their adoption process with her readers and last week their 
sweet little girl finally got to go home! I think it's the sweetest thing ever!

Fun Fabrics and a Snowman

Last night Kyle and I built a snowman after we got home from the movies!
I love our little snowman :) It had whopper eyes and buttons, candy cane nose and nerds hair.
Trying to get rid of Halloween and Christmas candies ha

I saw these fabrics over and Purl Soho and fell in love with these shades!
I just want to cover our apartment in them.

Aren't they just so bright and cheery? :) Check these and other fabrics at Purl Soho here. They have a beautiful selection. Oh, and Purl Soho is hiring!! I would love to live in New York right now so I could apply! They have a beautiful shop and it would be the most lovely and inspiring place to work.
Well, I've never actually been, but the pictures online of their shop are gorgeous! I def want to go sometime!!!
Hint hint Kyle ;)

I Do Love EmersonMade

When I got my copy of [the nest] in the mail and saw an article on Emerson of EmersonMade
I was so excited! I would recommend picking up a copy just to check out the tour of
Emerson and her husband's beautiful home. 

Speaking of, have you seen EmersonMade's new spring line? Gorgeous.

This Seersucker dress is my favorite!

Also love their tees.

If you're not already in love with EmersonMade you will be soon.
