house in the 'hood

This house in the 'hood
is not in our actual 'hood like my regular series
but rather in what we think of 
as our future neighborhood,
Palmetto Bluff, SC.
In case you've never heard of it
its a community near both
Bluffton and Hilton Head, SC.
Its a magical place to say the least.
I can't explain it but its true.
I think most people find their way
to the real estate office before the end of their first trip to PB.
If you ever go don't say I didn't warn you. ;)
We came close to buying a second home there this past summer,
like this {} close... 
but that's another story for another day.
Today let's enjoy this house in the 'hood
from near where I come from...

my {not so new} favorite place to shop...

Hope you all had a happy weekend.
We definitely did.
We went to The Sound of Music 
then had dinner with some framily.
{friends who have become family to us.}
If you're in Houston and hear someone randomly belt out
"A few of my favorite things" or
"Climb Every Mountain"
chances are it will be me or one my kids.
Highly recommend.
The musical.
Not my singing :)

what up buttercup?

Once again the week has gotten away from me.
Let's run down the week shall we?
I've come to think of Mondays as "Maintenance Mondays" -
and no I'm not talking about manis/pedis and haircuts.
Mondays are used to clean up the tornado left by four boys over the weekend.
I'm talking dishes, groceries, and laundry.
Mountains of laundry.
Boring but crucial to keeping our ship afloat :)
Tuesdays are all about cleaning and tidying
and little projects around here.
Last week it was a little front yard makeover.
This week I managed to get a shower enclosure installed 
in the kids bathroom because apparently 
the shower curtain only stays closed 
when I personally open and shut it.
Otherwise there are puddles all over the floor.
No bueno.

three things Thursday

Anybody else wondering where the week has gone?
I blinked and its Thursday.
Before I get to sharing some of my favorite recent finds
I want to say thank you for your kind comments 
and private emails that you sent 
after my last post about jumping in spite of over fear.
As I dig deeper into Daring Greatly its like one ah-ha moment after another.
Especially when it comes to self doubt and self compassion.
I'm working on a post about what I'm figuring out
but until then let's just delve into something fun shall we?
Herewith three recent finds that make me happy...

the biggest DIY of my life

I'll admit I got into real funk around the holidays.
I did.
Not gonna lie.
Thanksgiving and Christmas are usually my faves.
Not last year.
Life happened last year.
It sucks and its real but there's no changing it.
Then suddenly the new year came and my heart felt lighter
and I got this feeling like
let's get 'er done.

house in the 'hood

I admit I haven't been stalking listings on my beloved lately.
You may remember that we decided after the losses in our family
last spring to stay where we were planted
while our hearts were healing.
I didn't stop intentionally but my heart just wasn't in it.
Until recently ;)
Even my husband, my partner in real estate stalking,
is mentioning new houses and empty lots.
I've told him not to tease unless he's serious.
Because you KNOW I would jump at the bit
to design and build a dreamy new home.
Until then I'm back to looking for ideas.
Herewith is my favorite house in the 'hood...
its sale pending but we can look and dream any way...

This kitchen had me at hello.
I'd never leave this kitchen.
I wouldn't.
I'd just sit and stare all day.
What's not to love?
