So today is a great day, I am home having a SNOW DAY! I feel like a little kid, so excited to not have to get dressed and travel to work haha. The weather here in NYC/Hudson Valley has been crazy. Yesterday was 60 degrees and then today there are blizzard and storm warnings in and around the area! I normally commute a while to work, almost 2 hours each way, so with the weather being so nasty right now I am sure it would take me closer to 3 hours…So I opted to not travel out and stay home.
Anyone else home for a snow day?!
So I know in my last post I mentioned my hubby and I have started the home buying process! It really has been a very new, exciting and nerve racking experience thus far. As long as all keeps running smooth we should be moving into our new home in July! So with that said I have of course been dreaming up each room and how I will decorate. We also are moving from an apartment so there are a few items that we do not own now that we will need to get. I have been filling up a cart on Wayfair (I know, a little premature, but I cannot contain my excitement!) and I thought I would make a post on some items we plan on getting or things I just love.
Is anyone else obsessed with Wayfair like me?? You can get anything you can think of and really furnish your entire home all on one site!
I love white and this table just jumped out to me. I would love to pair this table with chairs like the one I included in this post. We love to entertain so having a table that can fit 8+ people is a huge plus and this table is extendable. I also love the distressed finish!
The chairs are exactly what I would love to have for my dining room. I love how they are a neutral color and would be comfortable for an everyday kitchen chair as well.
I just love this nightstand for our master bedroom. I love the lines, the fact it is white and also has a drawer. It looks large enough to have a light on it as well which i really like to have next to the bed. I plan on doing one on each side.
THIS BED. I just love it. Again, the distressed look is amazing and I love that its natural wood but also has white on it. I was originally looking for an all white bed but did not seem to like many that I came across. This is one that I think would go great in our new bedroom and with those nightstands!
I love the look of new rugs that have that distressed worn-in look. I think this rug would be a nice addition to our bedroom. Again, its more neutral but I love that it still has pretty blues in it.
I love this sofa for a couple of reasons. I love the blue velvet and I love that this is a pull out bed. This would be perfect in my office/glam room I plan on having. We want each bedroom to be able to sleep people, again since we like to entertain, but I did not want an actual bed in each room. So this is perfect.
This ottoman is just awesome. It comes in a ton of different colors and would be perfect in my glam room or even in the living room.
Any new items from Wayfair that you have been eyeing?!
It has been so long since I have had a free minute to get on here and post. Life has been a bit hectic but in a really good way. The holidays were just so busy and then we jumped into the new year in a big way, Tom and I started the house hunting process! It has been a bit nerve racking but so exciting at the same time. I am ready to say goodbye to apartment living. The thought of having our own space where we can entertain and just have room and not be so confined, it just makes me really excited! So we have found a house we love and are in the beginning stages so anything can still happen at this point, but we shall see. More updates to on this to follow later on.
How has life been for you guys? Anyone catch the Superbowl, or more importantly Lady Gagas awesome performance. I just love her. She is so talented!
So I have some fun reviews in the works. I like to really try the products first before coming to a conclusion on them. I have this awesome PMD device that I have been using for 2 weeks, I need to do my 3rd treatment and then I will make a blog post on it. I also have some hair products I want to try out a few times before reviewing as well.
Just wanted to give a little shout out to everyone! I hope all has been well and keep a look out for my new posts filled with some fun things coming soon 🙂
How was everyone’s Christmas and New Years?! NYE was a ton of fun for us. Tom and I got to spend it upstate with a bunch of our friends. Nothing better then bringing in the New Year with your loves!
I always get super excited about a New Year. Something about it feeling like a fresh start seems to get me in such a good mood. I know each year presents its own challenges but I love being able to start out with a clear head and new goals for the year ahead. 2015 was a tough one for us. My father-in-law, Fred, passed away just a few weeks shy of our 1 year wedding anniversary. It was a very emotional time, full with lots of changes as well. My mother-in-law, Birgit, passed away 4 years ago so Fred’s passing was sort of the end of a lot of different things, or the positive flip on that is the beginning of so many new things. We had to say goodbye to his parents house, in the town that all of his friends family still live. It was a very eye opening experience. Although 2015 was a sad year for us, we cannot say that the entire year was awful. We got to take our honeymoon in the Dominican Republic, which was so amazing! We also got to see the Met’s go to the world series and even got to see a game at Citi Field! We also got to spend a lot of time with family and loved ones, something that you can never put a price tag on! I like to think that each year has ups and downs, some worse than others, but its what molds us and makes us who we are.
I know we have some changes ahead, not sure what they are yet since we are still working things out, but I know whatever path we end up going down it will be super exciting!
Did any of you make a New Years resolution??! I did, aside from the usual, getting my butt back into shape and living a healthier life, Tom and I plan to make the most of this year. We want to start crossing things off our big bucket list, travel around the area we live more and once the weather gets nice try to do as many fun outdoor activities as we can!
I wish all of you a wonderful 2016, full of positive changes and love!
I would love to hear what you plan on doing this New Year, please do share!
