High Five for FRIDAY-- Kitchen REVEAL!

Every Friday, I link up with Jeanette and Lauren for my highlights from the week! I have had quite the week! We hosted a lot, painted a lot, worked at Tala a lot and soaked up family time! I am really excited to share with you my  K I T C H E N  R E V E A L below..........new paint holler!

Last Friday, We had our youth leaders over for a celebration! Lasanga/salad and desserts. It was great to connect. We are so THANKFUL for their dedication to our youth group......THE GATE! We played an intense game of scruples and laughed!

My in laws came for a 24 hour visit to see their granddaughters. It was beautiful weather while they were here. Lots of sunscreen and pushing the girls on the swings!

My neighbor gave the kiddos rides. 

Grandma Loni and Zion hit up Old Navy together. Zi chose this dress (which I adore) and the headband for Zakiyah! 

My new mousepad! I scored it for $2 at Target....best part, it is a notebook.

I painted my door.......obsessed. 

It is so happy.

Planted flowers......loving my chevron pots!

I brought out one of our chalkboards and rested it by the door!


Now on to the KITCH. I am so excited to see this room coming together. It is the room I spend the most time in. 

Here is a pix of it when we moved in......

Below are two pix of it when we moved our things in......

I painted the wall with Chalkboard paint last fall. It has been so fun using it for our family and the girls art.

Below is the newly painted walls..........

I LOVE IT! It is Sherwin-Williams, "Friendly Yellow". I love how it brightens up the space. It goes so well with the West Elm lights. I changed out the curtains with linen West Elm white ones. Fresh for summer. 


Love my cafe curtains with Jody fabric. I love the vintage feel.

I stretched the fabric and put it on a canvas frame that my hus made.

I hung clip boards for kid art!

I love RED. I love Gerbs. I love flowers.

I have lots more surprises to reveal next week. Stay tuned. 
Do have any fun projects going? A favorite paint color? Have a great weekend! Happy Memorial Weekend!!!!!

We have a BLUE DOOR!

I am so excited to share with you our newly painted (for the second time) DOOR! I love it!!!!!! Saturday morning, I woke up motivated! Over breakfast, Andy and I were discussing the plans for the day and we landed on lots of outside projects. I hauled the girls to Sherwin-Williams with me and we picked out paint on the spot. That is how I roll.....

When we bought our house it had a midnight blue/navy door. I liked it but it wasn't bright enough for me. Imagine that....so I used leftover paint from studio....and went to this.....

When we were building the studio downstairs, I knew I wanted a bright door- lime green is what I went with. I still love it on the studio door. I had leftover paint, and decided to paint the front door too. I just have not been 100% about it. Why? Too bright. Too hard to have accent colors with it. I wanted to add more tones to our front. I love a good house with some curb appeal. 

Above is the studio door. I think it works great for that space! Just not the front....

So after quickly browsing my Pinterest boards, I decided blue would be it. I picked "Blue Cruise" by SW. I love it. I painted the exterior and interior of the door this time. 

I potted our flowers too! LOVING THEM!!!!!! 

I begged Andy and his dad to hang the hanging basket up for me! I think it adds a lot. I brought out my yellow wreath for summer too.

I like how the blue brings out the gray! I am hoping to coax the hus to help me with window shutters this summer too. We are going to go with a colonial yellow for them. I also want white window boxes on the main floor windows. I can't wait. I am super happy with how it turned out!

Do you have any summer projects going? I am on a roll! Check back tomorrow for my Kitchen REVEAL! I painted it.........yellow!!!!!! It is gorg! 

We have been living on our deck that my Hus built last summer.....I love having it. We treat it like a bonus room.....BLISS....I love having a space to be outside with my family.....

I am so happy that we decided to go with composite wood. No maintenance = happy fam. I planted some cilantro and basil in the container on the coffee table. YUM! 

I still pinch myself that we have this view.

Our playground is being used daily by our girls, the neighbors, and my clients kiddos. I love having it. Praise for green trees and grass.  Have a super day!
