Cupid Calling

Thank you, thank you for all your kind words on our Dining Room Reveal. There's no question I'm going to miss that space. Some of you asked if we'd just pick up and move the room as-is to the new house...well, we'll move the furniture, but the new owners insisted on keeping all the window treatments and hardware, throughout the house.

So with no blue ikat drapes, pink walls, or red ceiling, it's not really the same space at all. At first I was a little bummed, then I realized it means I get to start over! #bonus

No question life has been a little crazy, so date nights have taken a back seat, and it seems 'new house construction' is the only topic of conversation. Mr. SP is putting a stop to that, and told me to be ready Saturday night for an early Valentine date night! Perfect timing since I just ordered this chic brushstroke dress from Nordstrom. (Thank goodness for their speedy, free shipping!) 

I'm trying to decide how to style it...which do you prefer? (If you prefer a sexier look, this dress is perfect!)



It's hard to believe Valentine's Day is already around the corner! I'm not a big lingerie girl (sorry, babe!), but I wouldn't mind Cupid bringing me these darling PJs or comfy pink slippers. Blame 16 years of marriage, but that's more my style these days. I'd much rather wrap myself in this cozy cardi, than have dental floss up my hoo-ha! I rounded up some goodies to help Mr. SP out...feel free to pass them along to your Cupid.

How often do you have date night? Do you go out for Valentine's Day? We hardly ever go out on the actual holiday, but opt to stay in and celebrate without the crowds...I guess that's another byproduct of old age so many years together. (See more of our Date Night Style here.)

P.S. You may have seen my teaser post yesterday on InstaGram and Facebook...the big photo shoot kicks off this morning!!! I'll post behind-the-scenes shots over the next few days, so follow along if you'd like! And tomorrow is another big Reno Update if I can get my act together...happy hump day, lovebugs!

{Dining Room} The Reveal

Monday, Monday...I'll admit, I'm a tad thrilled the work week is back...if only to take a break from all the work at home! But if you follow me on InstaGram or Facebook, you saw the serious progress at the 'new house' this weekend. Serious, as in, buh-bye shiny, orange stained cabinets! I'll have another Reno Update for you this week...but I can't thank you guys enough for your enthusiasm and genuine happiness for us. It feels like I have a cheering squad encouraging me with each big choice.

Last week I showed you the rugs we considered for the Dining Room, and asked what you'd choose. Usually when I ask you guys, it's to help me make a decision. This time, however, we already had the new rug in place, so it was fun to see what you liked...and what you thought we'd like. The overwhelming vote was #3...and I agree that the room needed navy in order to marry the drapes to the space better...but I can never resist a good stripe.

But it turns out, the striped one I showed you wasn't available in the larger size, so I went with a slightly different version....which I love even more! The rug was the final piece this room needed, and regardless of our impending move, I can now declare it complete! (Like I have a choice!)
