the friday edit

Happy Friday, you guys. It was a tough week given everything that has happened, so I am taking the time to really focus on what’s most important to me. That means lots of cooking, time with Sean, and many, many naps whenever I can get them.

Also, this weekend I’m hosting some really fun DIY events with Goodwill! Here’s the schedule for this weekend, with more locations to come during the month of October:

  • Saturday, 10 am – Redmond (15301 NE 24th St)
  • Saturday, 2 pm – Monroe (14751 Chain Lake Rd. SE)
  • Sunday, 11 am – Bellingham (1115 E Sunset Dr)

I’ll be sharing some really fun Halloween DIYs, last-minute costume ideas, and styling tips for a gorgeous Thanksgiving spread! Be sure to stop by and say hi.

Plus, here are a few things that have inspired me this week:

I was featuring on Previously Owner By A Gay Man for their Tastemaker Series, so be sure to check that out — especially my faaavorite picks to fill your home.

This post from Grace about staying sane in an overly digital world really hit home for me.

Definitely going to copy this French girl chic look.

Absolutely loving the calming vibes of this family room reveal for Jaime Derringer by Emily Henderson (and those pink window treatments)!

I mean, if Into The Gloss endorses the scrunchie…

Yummm, a pumpkin white russian!

Sherwin-William’s 2018 color of the year is sooooo good.

Have a great weekend!
