Master Bedroom Plans and Inspiration

Monday, January 25, 2016

Our master bedroom has been untouched since we moved in. We haven't done a thing. Nada. Nothing. Zilch. When we started (I'm talking a few years ago) brainstorming ideas and what our main inspiration was, we stumbled upon this beauty from (you guessed it) Restoration Hardware. We love the four-post bed, the sheets, everything but the chandeliiiiiiiier (had to). 
Even that bench at the end of the bed. We love it all.

Now, here's our room...it was laundry day. 

LOL LOL LOL AT THOSE WINDOW TREATMENTS,
WASSUP SHORTY (it does the job)

So very boring and very plain. Hey, at least it is clean, am I right? Eh? Eh? So here's the plan:

- New bed and mattress (we have saved for the past few years)
- New bedding (found an awesome deal at the RH Outlet and got all of it for $100)
- Pictures and frames so it looks like someone lives there
- Paint our furniture (we love the details on the pieces we have so we want to keep them. Our long dresser was a Savers find and the taller dresser and side tables were Jon's grandparents)
- New lighting (Table side? Wall mounts?)

I can't wait to share and to actually have a bed we both fit on ;-). We have been sleeping on a full since we met. We decided to get a king sized because Jon tosses and turns like you would not believe. We really can't wait because it is time to finally have a master bedroom for us to relax in and enjoy.

Are you a fellow Restoration junkie? I'm going to share tips and tricks on how to save at the outlet in Wrentham, MA and how we get our furniture and some decor for amazing prices!

Our Holiday in 3,456 photos

Sunday, January 24, 2016

Hellllooooo blog friends! I took a much needed break to enjoy the holidays with my family and friends and take a breather. It was refreshing and we had such a great couple of weeks celebrating birthdays (JACK IS FIVE NOW HOLY COW), Marin's first Christmas and many more get togethers. Here is how we celebrated in many, many photos.

Here's Jack at his desk at school. We had his Christmas concert in early Decemeber and I cry every time! Just so, so cute.
We also had a fun time at my sister Mary's house in NH! Such a blast and yummy food to boot.


PEEKABOO!

"LOOK! BATMAN!"


Doing the "hot tippah fella" pose (still no idea what that means) That's my brother-in-law Justin! He's the best.
And OF COURSE one of our traditions is to go see Santa on the fire truck! WE LOVE THIS. It is something we will do every year even when the kids don't care anymore and I'm the only one WHO STILL BELIEVES.
This ham. He gets me every time.


SANTAAAAA! Mind you, it was like 60 degrees this night. What a strange winter so far!

Marin is a mini Jon. It is precious.
Da heck?
This is my other awesome brother-in-law Markus! He is in his final year of med school. Then I am totally calling him Dr. Markus.
Ahhh brotherly love....for 50 seconds.
Party numero UNO at my Dad and Veronica's! Such a blast. My Nan and Uncle Larry came too.
All she needed for presents...solo cups.





And party numero DOS at my Mother-in-law's! Such a fun time.
BEST. FOOD. EVER.




And then the best part of the entire Holiday/year/past decade...JON DRESSED UP AS SANTA. AND NO CHILD BELIEVED HIM AT ALL.
HILARIOUS. In fact, he genuinely creeped them out!
Cookies for Santa.
Christmas morning! Jack got everything he wished for. Lucky, lucky boy.
And last but not least, the holiday party at my Mom's!

JUST GIMME DA TISSUE PAPAAAA.
Jack "telling us jokes" aka saying the same joke over and over and adding bodily fluids. That was a strange sentence to type.
Adore this little girl. Growing up way too fast.
A cake for Grace's birthday!
Marin had pink eye...and a cold...hopefully we didn't infect anyone. 
OHHHHH MY HEART

Deuces.
Jack fighting so hard to not ask for the 3457389tu34987t3 time to open presents.
We had such a great time! I also took the kiddos to see Santa and have a little winter photoshoot, just the two of them!
We hope you had a great Holiday season!
