Gift Guide / Mother's Day

Mother’s Day is right around the corner!  We love all you mamas out there, and we want to make sure you are taken care of. We’ve created a gift guide for you to “casually” show your kids and/or husband ;)  We’ve made it simple for them to shop from, by adding direct links to all the products below.

Five Things Friday

It has been a full week, so apologies for getting this post out a little later than usual!

1.  On Saturday we took pictures of the Nelson Project, and we can't wait! We will have edited pictures sometime next week or the following to share with you! Here's a few pictures I took on my phone.

2. In the middle of taking pictures, Sarah and I decided to switch shoes.  Can you tell which shoes are Sarah's and which shoes are mine?

3. On Saturday, we also celebrated Aymee's Birthday!!! We treated her to some of Oregon's finest... Blue Star Donuts!

4. We hosted Easter at our house this year, which was a lot of fun.  We went to church, then hosted lunch and had an egg hunt.  I was lucky enough to get to use this arrangement by Stemm Floral from our photoshoot the day before at the Nelsons. Isn't she good? It was a great day!

5. Isn't this sunshine glorious?! Too bad next week it has rain everyday on the forecast... For now, let's soak up this sunshine!

Have a great weekend!

Five Things Friday

1. I have always been drawn to white homes.  They have such a timeless, classic, clean look.  This week when I went back to look through my pins from Pinterest, there was a reoccurring theme of pinned white houses.  Here are a few of my favorites...

2. Have you guys seen the new Victoria Beckham line at Target?! It's amazing! I found this darling dress for Karis, and I can't get this gingham top out of my head! Way to go, Target!

3. It's hard to believe that we are almost done with the Nelson House.  This week, I've been driving to Salem everyday to get things ready for our big reveal on Saturday!  I've been taking my kids everyday (I can do that when it's Nana and Papa's house ;) ) and Karis has been decorating with all her stuffed animals.  It'll be fun to share the photos with you next week!

4. You guys... What is it about Easter Candy?! I can't stop eating Cadbury eggs.... Why are they so good?

5. Sunday is Easter, and both Aymee and I will be spending Sunday going to church, eating good food, and spending time with family.  We both go to Grace City Church in Corvallis, and if you're local looking for a church to go to this Sunday, we'd love to invite you to Grace!  Our church meets at the Whiteside Theatre, and services are at 9:15 and 11.  Let's be honest, we will most likely be at the 11 :) Have a great Easter weekend!

Light & Dwell on Pinterest

Are you guys on pinterest? If you are, are you as addicted as we are? It can be a problem sometimes… But, it can also be such a design blessing!  It’s where we look for inspiration, and we often tell our clients to create their own pinterest boards for projects so we can nail their unique design style and mesh it with ours.

Here are a few of our favorite pins from this last week…
