Join Me in celebrating everyday!

Sunday Simmer

I feel like Dave Matthews today, so much to say. Maybe that’s because I spent last night listening to a 90’s cover band or maybe it’s because I work from home alone and it can get awfully quiet around here!

I’m taking a break from making stress balls {aka a kitchen full of flour dust} with the girls to recap the week, share a few thoughts and of course, a few of my favorite things!

I’m working hard to put myself out there a little more. Last week I shot 7 videos! If you want a good laugh or tips to make the best M&M Cookies, you’ll get both. Do you like videos? Would you like to see more?

Speaking of putting myself out there, social media has always been a struggle for me. I was so excited to share this space – and it tanked. Maybe it’s an algorithm, maybe it’s the space, maybe it’s me, but I’m wondering, why do we value number of likes? Have you pulled away from social media? Is there life after Instagram/Facebook? What do you like to see on social? Stories, video, feed?

New/updated this week: Lake Cottage Before and After, Why I selected Patterned Carpet, Bacon Cheese Dip, Decluttering, Decorating for Fall and Loaded Smashed Potatoes.

This week’s most popular recipe.

Still one of the most frequently asked questions I receive is about our tv. We absolutely love it – it was a game changer for blending function and design in our living room. I can’t wait to photograph it again as our living room comes together in the next couple weeks. It’s 2 pieces, the tv and the frame. For reference, we have the 55″ which is the perfect fit above the fireplace.

My talented friend Courtney of French Country Cottage just published her first book and it’s so breathtaking! If you love dreamy spaces filled with flowers and romance, you will love this inspiring coffee table book! You can purchase it here.

Were ya’ll fans of Queer Eye for the Straight Guy? I have yet to see the reboot, but am beyond excited that Thom Filicia and Carson Kressley are back on Bravo with Get a Room.

Do you watch Flipping Out? I don’t know if I was more heartbroken to hear that Jenni and Jeff broke up or that they were faking it all these years. Have I mentioned I love watching mindless tv while I work out?

Do you think she’d notice if I moved into her garden?

Yep, it’s official, we need to move.

One of my favorite flower arrangements of all time.

Love this one, too!

Neutral fall decorations.

Adding this to the menu this week – yum!

Happy Sunday!

  1. Although I have both Instagram and Facebook accounts, I rarely scroll through/use them.   I find they waste too much time and they annoy me. I prefer to use a blog reader (Bloglovin) to keep up with the specific blogs I care about.   Love the neutral fall decor.   Enjoy your week!
