Let's Take Five

[one]: This living room is so darling, I cannot even handle all of the cuteness! I love the bright natural light and the small pops of color that add a little touch to the room. This room reminds me of our own living room in our little love nest and I have been itching to add bookcases on each side of our fireplace. It just seems so cozy to me.  Do any of you have bookcases along your fireplace? Do you love it or hate it? Do share! Gals got the home project itch over here!

[two]: Meet yourself where you are. That is seriously what I have been saying to myself over and over and over and over some more. Reminding myself to be present. I was sweating in cardio this morning and my instructor had a shirt on that said, "Live in the moment." I kind of rolled my eyes because it always seemed so cliche to me. For some reason, that line never really sat with me well but "Be present" always has. Yes, I know- it's essentially the same thing but "Be present" seems to have so much more intention and integrity to me. Meeting myself where I am in all aspects of life has been my intention for the week, gal pals. Not worrying about my job, or my future baby bears, or my teaching. Just appreciating what I am being dealt with now but still allowing myself to dream my future without getting so caught up in the details. It'll all fall into place. It always does, doesn't it?

[three]: I magically appeared in my hairdressers seat last week after a seven month hiatus. I always promise to do better at maintaining my new locks but life has gotten the best of me the past couple of months. What can I say? Life happens, gal pals.  I only had enough time for a quick snip-snip but I am headed back next month to change the color. At this point, the blonde is growing out and I am going back and forth with the idea of going dark again.  I am completely smitten with everything about this hair color. My green eyes would be poppin' and the even cut is swoon-worthy. I might even be brave and go a little shorter than that! Wait, what? Who am I?

[four]: The amount of sunshine that this sweet skin of mine has seen this summer has been slim to none. I feel like I live in Seattle, y'all! The amount of rain has resulted in me doubling up on yoga practices because really, what's a gal to do on a summer day besides bend a little?  If I am being honest, I could also use a day in- as in hide the keys, turn on the tunes [Oh hey, Miguel!] and lounge around.  This DIY pom-pom tote bag seems like a perfect [and easy!] project to get my hands on next week. I purchased the cutest tote last year that could use a little sprucin' and this DIY seems like the perfect touch! All you need is some embroidered floss and a pair of scissors! Can it get any easier, chickadees?

[five]: Listen up ladies, this pose is my absolute dream pose! Holy swoon! I've mentioned to y'all in the past how much I cannot get enough of heart openers and this is exactly what I was squealing about.  Although it's fun, yoga is not always about the physical poses but more so about the lessons they teach us and the feelings or emotions that pop up when getting there.  I'm working my way towards this pose for now. I'm almost there but gals gotta lead with her heart and get that head up first. I'll keep you posted, sugars! 

Enjoy your weekend!, chickadees Hope you have something snazzy planned! Here's to hoping that there is a little sunshine heading our way!
