Five Things Friday

1. This week our team finished up the Corvallis Classic Modern!  It was a project where I had to pinch myself, because I can't believe this is my job.  I get to design spaces for a living!  What a dream.  Here are a few pictures (stay tuned for the full reveal in a few weeks).

2. Baseball season has officially begun, which means the Kidd household is getting busy!  To break things up in my day when I'm not working, I've found driving a longer loop home after I drop Karis off at preschool, and plugging in a good podcast helps me feel like I'm gaining encouragement and wisdom that day.  Krew typically takes a nap, so I'll get some drive-thru coffee, and take some "me time" listening to podcasts.  It sounds silly, but sometimes all I want to do is sit in my car and drive.  It helps give me clarity and a fresh perspective.  Some of my favorite podcasts recently are The Happy Hour, The Goal Digger, Going Scared, Chris Loves Julia, and For the Love. Are you a podcast listener? I'm hooked!

3. I really respect Joanna Gaines.  Not just because she's incredibly talented, but she also stays true to herself.  I think it's wise beyond words that her and Chip are ending Fixer Upper to focus on their family and other parts of their design business.  Its been fun to see her style evolve, yet stay the same, throughout her time on HGTV.  Here's a kitchen she recently revealed, and I absolutely love the mix of wood and painted cabinets, open shelving, and countertop/backsplash. SO beautiful!

4. Ayms and I are both huge fans of the Loft.  We both are proud to say we have "mom bods", and embrace the fact that Forever 21 and BP no longer fit us right.  This weekend, the Loft is having a huge sale!  All of their full price tops and sweaters are 40% off.  Here are a few we're loving (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8).

5.  Speaking of the Loft... I feel like their earring game has gone up a notch.  Right now, all earrings are buy one get one 50% off!  Here are a few favorites (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6).

Have a great weekend!
