Five Things Friday

1. There is a snow storm headed our way next week and I’m definitely not ready for it. Monday-Wednesday we have a big install, and adding the extra layer of a winter wonderland on a very private road sounds a bit challenging ;) but, our teams got this! We’ve got a team of people lined up, ready to rock! I’m so glad I got snow shoes for Christmas, they’re going to come in handy this week. If you need a pair, these are the ones I have and love. While inside, I’ll be wearing these comfy shoes (and I’m sure Aymee will too, we have the same pair ha. They are worth the splurge if you’re always on your feet).

2. Speaking of Monday, we also have a presentation for an entire main level and exterior remodel. I just finished up the mood board/hard finish selections, and I’m getting excited to present it to our clients! Here’s some inspiration for this modern, curated home.

3. Are you a morning routine person? What is it? This question always seems to comes up. I’ve always been someone who likes routine, and with little kids, the only time I can have a consistent routine is if I wake up before they do. My alarm goes off at 5:04am every morning (I don’t know why the :04… I just do?). I wake up, brew some coffee and froth some half and half (best purchase of my life… my milk frother, it’s worth every penny of the $20 I spent on it). I spend some time reading and journaling, getting myself mentally and spiritually prepared for the day. Then I either do yoga or strength training via youtube (there’s a million resources on there). Then I get ready for the day. I find that if I get this time in before everyone else is up, I can give a lot more throughout my day, and show up for the people I need to be there for. Do you have a morning routine?

4. Tonight we’re celebrating February birthdays in our family, and for the past few years I’ve made this vegan/gluten-free carrot cake that is THE BOMB. Now my secrets out that it’s both vegan and gluten-free… it’s so good, no one can ever tell.

5. Madewell is having their Valentines sale, here are a few of my favorites (1, 2, 3, 4, 5).

Have a great weekend!
