I haven't shared random home photos on the blog in a while, so I snapped a few to share with y'all. I often end up in a bit of a decorating funk during the dreary time between Christmas and spring. This year, in order to avoid that, I decided a nice dose of pink was what our living room mantel needed, and I'm loving the cheerfulness it brings to the room. As you can see, we use an inflatable pool as a ball pit for Jack and he really loves playing in there. I end up cleaning balls out from under the sofa and every other imaginable place every night after Jack goes to bed, but he's having fun so I don't mind. We keep all of his living room toys in the vintage bassinet in front of the bookshelf, books are in the basket in front of the fire place, and diapers and wipes are in the second basket from the right on the bottom. I've found that having a place for everything has really helped us keep the room tidier than we used to. The coffee table is one of my favorite IKEA purchases ever. We bought it when Jack started pulling up because I figured a round table would be a little safer. It adds a laid back vibe to the room and it also provides extra storage because the tray on top comes off.
I've never shared any kitchen photos here before because, well, it's not very cute (thanks Army housing!). I did recently add our CB2 acrylic console table to the center of the kitchen to use as an island though, and I'm really happy having a little extra surface space. Jack likes to grab the fruit that's in the bread bowl on the "island" and he also gets little fingerprints all over the acrylic, so the idea is certainly not without flaws, but it was an easy way to use a piece we already had.

Hi everyone! This one is for all you ladies who are local to the Leavenworth/Kansas City area...I signed up to host a booth at my first ever flea market and would love for you to come! I have lots of vintage pieces as well newer goodies that I need to unload since we will have to downsize when we move this summer. I'm talking brass pineapples, a faux bamboo coffee table, cool brass chairs, 2 bar carts, a rattan wine rack, darling brass candlestick sets, foo dogs, lots of blue willow china, some ginger jars, a few pairs of Tory Burch shoes I've worn maybe twice, nice clothes I don't need anymore, fun jewelry...there seriously is something for everyone. The flea market will be held on Saturday, February 4th at the Leavenworth Riverfront Community Center from 8AM-2PM. Please please please come see me! I'd love to meet you and it would make me so happy if my stuff ended up in the homes of those who actually know my style and would put it to good use. Send me an email if you want more details. I'll sell stuff via paypal after the flea market is over for those of you who aren't local, so stay tuned. Hope to see you there!

5. Top the teepee with some garland made of felt balls or pompoms. I made this garland with felt balls from Hello Maypole. They have a great selection of colors.

Q5. How often are you strength training? Does it make a difference?
Q6. How big of a difference do shoes make? I have crappy ones now and am thinking of investing but a lot of “good” running shoes are pricey so I just wonder if it really is worth it or not to splurge.
