Now that we have a functional fireplace again I’m planning all my evening activities fireside. Work out? Fireside. Finishing touches on the headboard project? Fireside. Mindless scrolling of Facebook questioning the state of our world? Fireside. The only thing that would make it better would be those two chairs above from this home. Total #goals.

We survived the Polar Plunge yesterday on a blustery 26 degree day. Phew! Glad we don’t have to do that for another year. It’s always a shock to the system but for such a great cause, Special Olympics Minnesota. I’m taking today to recover, catch up on some ongoing house projects and soaking up those Sunday vibes before the busy week ahead. Enjoy these links from around the web as I bust put the paintbrushes, yet again!
Tomorrow is the day. The annual White Bear Lake Polar Plunge (check out this photo from 2014… ha!)and I am not mentally or physically ready. So, I’m heading into an evening of packing up warm clothes, thinking warm thoughts and enjoying some warm drinks. Let’s hope those carry me as we take the leap tomorrow. Brr!

Yesterday over lunch my co-workers and I took some time to print postcards, gather up stamps and we wrote our representatives. I had a lot to say and the postcard was small but I’m going to keep writing and I can’t wait to see what other actions the Women’s March group has planned for the days ahead. Sign up here to join the 10 Actions in 100 Days campaign and let’s work towards the change we want to see. It’s the least we can do.

Though it wouldn’t match a single thing in our house or life, I’m really digging this light blush hue I’m seeing everywhere in home and interior design. Maybe it’s just a sign that winter will eventually end one day but I can’t get enough of it!

I’ve been browsing signs from the Women’s March since Saturday and this one takes the cake.

What an inspiring weekend, no? I was glued to Twitter and Facebook watching friends and family across the country join the Women’s March on Saturday. Such an incredible turnout and peaceful demonstration. I couldn’t be more proud and hope to carry this momentum for the next four years. Lord knows, we’re going to need it. Between the constant refreshing of social media this weekend, I did find some links from around the web this week. Enjoy!

Among other things, buying a little fixer upper has greatly enhanced my internet scouring skills. Exhibit A above. I had my eye on these tables for our master bedroom, waited too long for them to go on sale and then they sold out across the country. Blargh. So the internet hunt began for a similar and cost-effective replacement and then the Google gods led me here in the middle of a holiday sale and, presto, our bedroom was feeling much for finished and my books had a place to rest at night. And they were, at the time, $20 cheaper than the Target model. Woop woop!
This week I’m putting my internet skills to work on some rug sourcing. Keep you posted on that one!
