Finally Fri-yay!

Its finally Friday and you know what that means! Time to link up with the ladies below for some five on Friday.  Lets jump right in!

Joanna Gaines.  The woman behind HGTV's Fixer Upper.   I have been obsessed with her but it has gone to a new level since we are in the middle of building our house.  Her style is such a great mix of my husband's style and my style.  I have a few of her products from her Magnolia store and I am so excited to use some of her pieces in my house. 

Joanna Gaines Shopping
Spring.  I have been dreaming of Spring all month long.  I am looking forward to some beautiful weather.  I am so ready for germ season to head on its way out and actually enjoy being outside.
In house news, we are still not moved in yet. Blech.  However, things are moving along.  Here is a little sneak peek at our great room.  The trim is finally completed (finally) and the beams were installed at the beginning of this week.  We will be painting the wood on the walls white and the beams will be a dark stain.  I have said this 100 times and will probably say it 100 times more before we move in, but I am so ready to get in there!  Joanna Gaines better watch out because I will move hitting up her shop more often.
Anyone else' laundry look like this?  I am good about doing at least one load of laundry a day and I really stay on track of it, but it never fails and it still gets piled up.  Maybe laundry will be more fun when I get to do it in an actual laundry/mudroom.  Wishful thinking?  You can click here to see some inspiration on for our mudroom.

No Friday post is complete without my main squeeze.  Meal time has been a nightmare.  He is over baby food, unless it comes in a squeeze pouch.  He has been eating what we've been eating which is a little less of a struggle, but still a struggle.  I have started giving him a teething biscuit to chew on while I feed him and it has seemed to help.  I say he enjoyed this meal since he has mashed potatoes up to his eyebrows.  No?
Happy weekend, Friends!

  1. Your great room looks amazing! :) So exciting to be building a new home!

    Your laundry baskets look better than ours. Lol. I usually just let it overflow from the basket onto the ground. And sometimes it will be filled with clean clothes that scream at me to be put away. Laundry is for the birds. ;)

    Happy Weekend!

    1. Thanks Kristy! I am so excited for the final product. Also, I can always find something else to do beside paint my nails. ;-)

  2. That fireplace is gorgeous!

    Your son is so cute, I would say he enjoyed his food!

  4. Oh your fireplace is beautiful! Can't wait to see the rest! We've had a tough meal time week with Lawter too- she turns her head away from just about everything right now. Ughhh. happy friday!

    1. It is so frustrating when they refuse food. I know the saying that they will eat when they are hungry, but that's for the birds.

  5. I'm obsessed with Joanna Gaines and Fixer Upper too! I even checked to see if they happen to do home outside of Waco, which they don't. Boo!

    1. I know, I wish they did. Be sure to check out her shop. Its amazing.

  6. Your great room is going to be gorgeous with the stained beams and that fireplace! And girl, your laundry pile looks good to me! I don't have children so I try to do one load a week but that rarely happens!

    1. Thanks Paige. I am so ready to see the final result. I wish I had one load a week...;-)

  7. Wow your house looks AMAZING!!! I can't wait to see the finished product.
