2. Old Navy is having some great sales right now! Here are a few things that caught my eye (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16).

3. We installed the majority of our Fairhaven Drive Project last week, and it’s a project I can’t wait to share with you all! Revealing this project to the home owners was really special, because they have longed for a home to retreat and relax in for SO LONG. Watching our clients faces as they walked through the door was priceless. I can’t believe this is my job! It’s so much more than just “designing and styling a house”, it changes peoples lives for the better.

Here are a few iPhone pictures to hold you over until we take professional ones in a few weeks!

4. As promised, we are sharing a recipe from Aymee every week here on Five Things Friday!

Aymee’s first recipe but be advised…she always edits or swaps ingredients, she’s kind of a rebel. You’ve been warned.

Fun fact: Jim and Aymee lived in New Zealand for 3 years and had their oldest daughter Katee there. Lovely people, country, and FOOD! Aymee has picked up a “Kiwi” cookbook and is working through it. Kiwi’s were doing simple and healthy food before it was cool! This recipe is brought to you by request from Curtis, their 16 year old hungry and growing boy!

Cheesy Rocket Scones For Beginner Bakers

Original Recipe by Annabel Langbein

Prep Time 10 min

Cook Time 15-18 mins

Makes 12-16

4 cups flour

1 1/2 baking powder

1 tsp salt

A pinch of cayenne pepper

3 cups of arugula

2 cups cheese

1 cup chilled cream

1 cup soda water

Preheat 400 degree’s and line baking tray with paper.

Combine flour, baking powder, salt, cayenne, arugula, cheese.

Coming cream and soda water. Make a well in the dry ingredients and pour in the liquid and mix until combined.

Turn out on a floured surface and pat into a rectangle. Cut into 16 pieces and bake until puffed and golden brown about 15-18 min.

Great to freeze and I like to cut in half, put on some butter, and broil. Even add a slice to tomato! Enjoy!

5. A few items I’m thinking about for our master bedroom. We’ve never really had a “master bedroom/bathroom” before… and let’s be honest, Brad and I have been living in 300 sq. ft. of space at my parents house with 5 humans (3 under 5) for the past 14 months… So, anything “master-ish” feels like a luxury, and I’m having so much fun dreaming about that future space! Here’s what I’m thinking… (rug, bed, mirror, nightstands, sconces, quilt, end of bed stools, pillows).

Have a great weekend!
