InstaFriday #15 - around the house

Other than the fair, not a lot has been going on this week. Basically I've been at home with Collin trying to get him to poop on the potty. Don't you wish you were me?!

But I have been able to get a few things done around the house while I've been mulling around in my yoga pants and greasy hair.



Liking the colors pops in my dining nook.


Added some family rules from Alexander Creative
(Trendy, but cute all the same)


Made some soup for my neighbors. 
Just another reason why holding on to fabric scraps is a good idea.


Fixed up a yard sale book case and added a little reading corner to the playroom.
Collin spends a lot of time just in his skivvies. 


I finished up the study bookcases. I love love having a place for all my books. 
Not to mention my Pendleton Blankets.


Someplace where trinkets look intentional instead of cluttered.


And you really can't have too many books can you? That and old milk jugs.

The soup was so delicious! Thank you! Maddox and Elayna were so excited to take some to school in their new Thermos's! Maddox (my little soup-a-holic) particularly loved it, so I'm glad you shared the link.
