I've never been a fan of the show "The Bachelor," though I hear it's a hit with the ladies. Personally, I've always felt that if you've seen one reality TV show, you've seen them all. BUT, this one takes the cake.
Also, I hope you all enjoy the holiday weekend. We're off to Vancouver (good ol' Canadia land) for a little babymoon. Can't wait!

Ashley's Dandelion Wishes has TONS of ideas for using washi tape. (If you're unfamiliar with washi tape, hink duct tape light, but with more design options.) Here are a few fun ideas that stood out to me, but you can check out the entire list here. So creative!

Hooray! I'm so glad it's Monday.
Said nobody. Ever.
At least this coming weekend is a holiday weekend so there's that to look forward to. Oh, and this tasty snack makes me happy too. It's a little bit of fig jam (they sell this in the cheese section at our local Safeway), some sliced cheese (Manchego is best), and a little piece of sesame bread. Yummy!

We've also added some new pieces to our living room and dining room recently and I'm in love with the changes. In the living room, we added some french-inspired artwork on the walls and added a beautiful oriental rug underneath the coffee table. In the dining room, we added new lighting fixtures that also sort of have some french flair. One year after moving in, we're finally putting our stamp on our house. It's been a lot of fun so far!
So we finally bit the bullet and paid to start our front porch remodel. It'll take about 30 days to complete and if successful, it'll return our porch to its former glory. It went through a bad facelift about 10 years ago when the previous home owner decided it would be a good idea to replace the tongue and groove flooring with cold, modern slate. Since our house was built in 1903, the slate is a bit of a red herring so I'm happy to get rid of it.
Keep your eyes open for an update on the porch (with photos!) sometime toward the end of June. I think it's going to look amazing.
