COOK/ I was searching around pinterest yesterday looking for the perfect light springtime dessert and stumbled upon this cake and strawberries idea. Looks tasty and plan out for the first time on Sunday!

MAKE/ The Nerd requested to make a giant Jenga set, so we hit up home depot and cut down some 2x4s. All that’s left is to sand and paint the ends. Tutorial coming up soon!

WANT/ They always say that diamonds are a girl’s best friend. And I’m not about to disagree with them. This diamond would make and EXTRA COOL terrarium.

NEED/ I made a vow to myself this summer to buy most of my produce from farmers markets. It’s way more affordable, fresh and good for the city. So I’m clearly going to need a new tote or three to carry all that fresh produce in… right?

WOOF/ I’m so into baking for friends, family and myself, but have YET to bake for M. Well that’s about to change. Two of her favorite “people foods” are in this recipe for homemade dog treats.

SPACE/ I’m really on a bedroom kick it feels like and I’m happy to announce that a lot of these bedrooms kinda look similar to my own. I need to get my butt in gear, finish my bathroom and FINALLY start to show you guys some pieces of my home.

LAUGH/ I definitely had a chuckle or two recreating the songs these totes are created for. Thumbs up. You can never have too many totes.

WEAR/ Love this very basic top, and I think it’s really versatile.

Well today’s the last day of dog sitting Lily and Diesel and while I’m going to miss their furry butts, I’m ready to have my life back and to have my furry snuggle buddy back at night. Tomorrow is a 5K and Sunday is Mother’s Day. If you haven’t gotten your mother a gift yet, GET ON THAT. If you need help coming up with some gift ideas check out this post from last year for some great ideas!!

Also being that it’s Friday…. it’s time to…..

COOK/ If you don’t think these are the most delicious looking brownies in the world, you should probably stop reading this blogs. Our friendship is going nowhere. But seriously though, I’m making these for a party coming up…

MAKE/ These look TRES CHIC and I could total make these. Going on my “Items to Create” list for sure.

WANT/ This is the PERFECT sign for a perfect home studio. And I want it. Badly.

NEED/ I love this genius idea of how to organize my huge collection of tape. But I wonder if it’ll dry out if not used often? Maybe imply the fold over technique for the laser used varieties.

WOOF/ M chewed the crap out of her leash one day when i left her home for a few hours. In protest? Maybe. Not that this one would be any safer from her grasp. But, I do really like this, so maybe when she’s a bit more mature?

SPACE/ Oh My Gosh. Where to start? I love so many things about this room. The brick, the white bedding, the pops of color, the black windows….it looks so comfy to wake up to.

LAUGH/ I feel like this planter was made for me. Somehow even with the best of intentions I always kill houseplants. BUT NOT ANYMORE. I’m determined. I want more green in my life. And house. And this time I might actually research them first.

WEAR/ I’m in the very slow process of updating my wardrobe. Taking it from Early 20s Ts and jeans and party outfits to more day/ evening going out outfits. More professional work outfits…. Its a slow process…

TODAY is AWESOME…. why? Because I’m getting two of my favorite puppies to dog sit for the week while the old rookie heads out for vacation. Pretty pumped. 🙂

FRIDAY TEMPLATE-01

COOK/ Summer is fast approaching which to me always symbolizes camping, bonfires and smores. While it’s not quite warm enough here yet, unless you like freezing your ass off… this might be a good alternative until it is… you know… to keep to peace… 😉

MAKE/ I’ve messed around myself with cutting pegboard, and it’s definitely not for the easily wavered type, it’s actually quite difficult. But this looks a fun craft room project. Maybe one that spells out MAKE or CRAFT or CREATE? Totally worth a try. PRO TIP: Cut out the smaller inside holes first.

WANT/ I completely fell in love with this HelpInk print when I saw it on YHL’s post about their office. It’s meaningful and bright and perfect. Totally on my Christmas list… or you know… gift list in general.. hint hint… in like a large size.

NEED/ Well, I advent told my saga yet over the dryer and installation, but lets skip to the end part where the dryer is slightly deeper than my old one. Making it impossible to put the doors back on the closet. Thus being the case I’m on the hunt for fun easy curtains. I’m 90% sure I’m going to buy this print, hem it and hang on a rod. It’ll match well with my mirror I think…

WOOF/ M just received this gorgeous collar in the mail this week and I’m completely over the moon about it. Love that it’s girly without being straight up pink. Plus she looks fancy and ready for spring in it. Plus metal buckles without an additional charge? ❤ <3.

SPACE/ My parents just underwent a huge reno on their house which has me thinking all sorts of “things I would do” in my forever home. Actually was having that conversation last night also. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the tile in this kitchen, and how bright it is. Definitely a MUST HAVE for the future.

And I’m out for today!! Glad it’s Friday, I have some fun plans this weekend…

COOK/ I stumbled upon this recipe yesterday and immediately went out to buy the ingredients. I love mac and cheese, but as well al know it’s just not the healthiest thing in the world. So hopefully if this go well I can substitute this in time to time to balance it all out. Trying it tonight!!

MAKE/ I found this really sweet hanging sign while searching for the items for my gift guides the last two weeks here, here, here and here. And fell in love with this one. But for the price, I think I could replicate really well on my own with this trick. Wish me luck!

WANT/ So really for spring and green and plants and OMG warm weather (it’s still snowing here in the mitten some days) that I’m really getting into having plants out in the home. I’m pretty sure I’m going to jump on the fiddle leaf fig train and pop one of these babies into my house. Here’s to not killing the thing…

NEED/ I can’t believe something like this doesn’t already reside in my paint supplies. How freaking genius is this? I need like 4 please… that way I stop buying brushes every time I go to paint…

WOOF/ While it’s not QUITE spring-like yet, I’m prep-ing for some bit time dog park dates and muddy potty breaks by adding these boots to my collection. Not the most glamorous looking pair in the world, but you can’t beat the price, and I won’t feel terrible getting them completely dirty. Plus with that color, you might not notice the dry so much… right?

SPACE/ I’m pretty certain my office is my next HUGE project so I’m pinning inspiring office spaces like crazy. Absolutely in love with the giant calendar and cork board in this fun office.

So glad it’s Friday. Mar’s driving me crazy wanting to get outside for some fresh air… I honestly can’t blame her so we’re hoping to swim by the park on our way home from work today! Hope you have a great weekend!!

*NEW CATEGORY* SPACE — a place that inspires me

COOK/ I pretty much just went round eyed and started salivating when I saw this photo. Recipe is pinned and you can bet your ass I’ll be trying it soon.

MAKE/ I’ve been looking around for a while now for some fun soft baskets to hold extra toilet paper in the bathrooms in my home… And I’m fairly confident that I could pull together two on these. Now I just need to actually get started on them… baby steps. right?

WANT/ Since seeing this pillow on Michael’s couch here… I’ve wanted this pillow. Even before he gave sources for everything I literally search for this pillow. I think it would be super cute in ANY bedroom.

NEED/ I’ve been on a whole crazy organization kick lately and one guilty party is my closet/ laundry area. I’ve got some big plans for that area and that’ll hopefully hit the blog soon and these baskets would be a great addition. (Telling myself that so I get my ass in gear) The other huge area that needs organization? My drawers… ALL DRAWERS in my house. It’s bad guys… WAY BAD. These drawers spacers would put a nice dent into my utensil drawer issue.

WOOF/ Marley’s not really a fast eater, she tends to eat a mouthful and then walks away. I call her a social eater. So because she doesn’t have an empty bowl all the time, sometimes it hard to remember just how much she’s actually had to eat that day. I’m starting to make a routine out of it (in hopes it puts her on a schedule more) but this cute art would be a nice reminder coming down the stairs in the morning or right next tot he door when I walk in.

SPACE/ Guys, New category– I’m stoked. Sometimes I just get so inspired by a space that it’s hard to tell you why. This bedroom that was featured on apartment therapy is very calming (which a bedroom should bed). I love the wide planks I totally want to do that to a wall of my own, and I also love the bed and bedding. That’s how I want my bed to look and feel… like the most comfortable thing you could ever crawl up into.

I don’t know about you guys, but I’m pretty sure this week has been out to get me. I’m so glad it Friday, and that I have a two day break from the craziness. 

PS, USA vs. CANADA Hockey today… noon. CANT FREAKING WAIT. Winner gets to deport Justine Bieber. And I’ll be honest. I cant stand that little shit anymore. The stakes are SO HIGH with this one.

Also being that it’s Friday…. it’s time to…..
