What do you think about some funky wallpaper for a tiny powder room? I’m fullin’ it. Everything else I gravitate towards interior design wise is white. White paint, white tile, white everything. Seriously, just look at my Pinterest boards. So I thought I would take this tiny space and spice it up. OK, I know the chair one is white and could be taking my chair obsession too far, but how fun would it be to keep markers in the bathroom and allow guests to color a chair!
Can you believe it? When you first find out you’re pregnant time goes so slow (oh and don’t even get me started on the prepregnancy waiting). I was aways waiting, waiting for the first trimester to end & make it to the “safe zone,” waiting for test results, waiting to show so I looked pregnant, not just oddly bloated. Then all of a sudden HELLO, I’m over half way there. In just a few (well, 4) months we will be meeting our littlest, sweetest, baby… BOY. Yes a boy!
Many of you guessed right. We also thought from the beginning that this bundle would be a boy and are beyond thrilled. Of course we would have been happy either way, but there was something almost relieving about the first one being a boy. That kind of sounds bad, but I promise it’s not. I’ll end up spending way less on baby clothes, I hope. Now to pick a name…
What I’m Wearing: Jacket : Forever21 / Jean Vest: Thrifted / Top: American Apparel / Bag: c/o Ellington / Pants: Similar / Shoes: Target
Photos by Lovella. I love The Billings. Thanks to Brandon for fixing the blog. Woo hoo! The header is back!
Oh hey everyone! Soooo, moving sucks, huh? Who knew we had so much junk. Really makes you analyze the things you don’t need. I feel a garage sale coming soon. Just wanted to let you know the move went well thanks to some amazing friends and family who are true life savers, so I’m going to be posting a little slow while we get settled in. And apparently the header decided to disappear and everything wanted to center on here, so it looks like the blog is going to need some fixin as well. Hope everyone had a nice Easter weekend and is excited about spring! I can feel it coming, my allergies told me so! xo

Welp. It actually happened, we officially bought a house. Or as Nick likes to say, the bank bought us a house and is letting us live in it forever provided we pay them monthly for the next 30 yrs. He’s no fun. WE BOUGHT A HOUSE! Which means we are also in the midst of packing and moving. We planned on having a buffer to do some renovations before we move, but that didn’t work out, so watch out 50+ yr old carpet. Here we come!
We’re having a baby! I can’t believe I’m almost half way there and just now spilling the beans. I’ve been so giddy to share, so Lindsey and I finally got together for a little shoot… because what’s a pregnant blogger without a maternity series, right? Hope you enjoy the photos. The Billings are the best and I can’t wait to have more shoots to share thru out the rest of the 20+ weeks. P.S. I know if it’s a boy or girl. What do you think?
Today was supposed to be closing on our new house and this weekend was supposed to demo. Funny how something can change so quickly. So while we wait for the new date, I am going to take this weekend to relax while I can, and maybe do some more organizing and purging… or just watch a movie and lay on the couch. What’s your go-to lazy day movie? I might go with Spaceballs.
Sight: Remember doing this as a kid? I think PeeWee Herman had something to do with it.
Smell: A good perfume for me is equal parts smell and packaging… Le Labo has nailed the packaging, must try the smell.
Sound: New Look. So 80s… I think I like it.
Taste: Must make these lemon ricotta pancakes this weekend. I’ve been really into citrus lately, what, you can be into that, right?
Touch: Love this in smokey quartz!
Remember me?! Well, as if you couldn’t tell, the rest of February was a mess and March isn’t off to a great start either. I’m so done with Winter it’s not even funny. I really need to be outside in the sun, with birds chirping and no jacket, all that Spring stuff. The house buying has been a little stressful with lots of septic issues (I swear I live 3 miles from downtown Ann Arbor, not the boonies), and then I got a lovely case of food poisoning or a stomach bug (the worst, right). The juggling of jobs, freebies, moving, sickness and more has really gotten to me. But I don’t want this to be all sad town woe is me usa. No! The Senses Five is funland damn it, where we talk about shit we can’t afford but want anyway, houses that are dreamy and all that good stuff. So I am busting the hell out of this rut soon and coming back with bells on. I have some good news to share, I swear. In the mean time, I hope everyone is buckling down for this last throw of Winter, because Spring is just around the corner to save us. And to all you California good weather living people… house buying be damned, do you have any jobs for an accountant lad and marketing lady?
Finally, the weekend! This week has been too long. Tonight Nick and I are celebrating a late Valentine’s Day out to dinner. And then hopefully I can get some organizing and packing done this weekend. We still haven’t closed on the house yet. But I get antsy, I’m calling it done and can’t wait any longer to prepare.
Sight: Speaking of the new house, this is what we are thinking for the ceiling. What do you think?!
Smell: Due to super sensitive skin, I shy away from any products with fragrance, but this fabric softener is just too good. Especially for sheets and towels.
Sound: We recently watched Searching For Sugar Man about Detroit musician Sixto Rodríguez. I highly recommend it, and also I would watch the movie before reading anything or googling too much. The story is amazing and the music is beautiful.
Taste: Have you heard of this salt company out of Portland? I think I might have to order some, and that chocolate bar for Nick.
Touch: Kinda fullin some bright white chucks. My feet are ready for Spring.
