• Classic Cottage is doing well thus far in June! We’re hustling like there is no tomorrow.

• We got a piano!! My sent friend Ana (Owner of The French Flamingo) had a piano that needed a home! I will share pics soon!!

• This week was insane with our business and I couldn’t have made it without my Arie Leggings. Which are buy one get one free this week!! Click HERE to see!!

 • We saw the movie Adrift in theaters. Very good movie!

• Aaron bought a Himalayan salt plate today. He grills a good bit of our dinners in the Summer so I’m so excited for him to use it.

Tonight we are relaxing around the house with yummy BBQ and fur babies! Thanks so much for reading!!

My Keurig Days Are Over

Never thought I’d say it but my Keurig days are indeed over. Keurig is one of the rmain reasons I began drinking coffee. My mom bought me a Keurig for Christmas 2013. She said it was from my “hot chocolate”.. One thing led to another, then I began dating Mr. Coffee Lover and now I can’t live without it.

T H E    T A S T E

It began with Aaron. He no longer liked the taste on Keurig coffee. A year later, I started noticing a plastic-y taste. I much preferred coffee from a restaurant or coffee shop. It just tasted so much better.

T H E    M O N E Y

Between the two of us it was nothing to use 4 k-cups a day. You don’t really realize how much that adds to your grocery bill.

T H E    P L A S T I C

Hot water and plastic make me feel like I’m drinking chemicals.

T H E    B U G

Even though we spray our house regularly, the occasional bug still wanders in. One morning, I opened the top of my Keurig to insert the k-cup & there was a black bug in the top where the K-cup goes. Yep. Worse part, the bug crawled into the Keurig to where I couldn’t get it. After this, I no longer used my Keurig.

T H E   C L E A N I N G

Which brings me to my next point, how clean can we truly get it?

M Y   S O L L U T I O N

I bought a kettle and dripper to make pour over. It takes a little extra time but the coffee taste MUCH better! It’s also saving on my weekly grocery bill. I can clean/rinse out the dripper daily. I have a new routine. I heat up the kettle as I’m unloading my dishwasher in the morning then just pour the hot water over my favorite blend.

I’m going to link the kettle and dripper I bought. If you’re wanting something faster I’m also going to link some more options.

Week Vibes

We had such a wonderful week. My little sister Kelbee came to Auburn to spend a few days at our house. We very much enjoy when she’s at our house because she brings a balance to our crazy schedule. For example, 9pm dinners are no longer acceptable when a 10 year old is around.

To read a more about Kelbee’s visit click here to check out Nighttime Prayers.

Other small highlights this week 

• I’ve been reading the Outlander book series by Diana Gabaldon since January. I finished book #4 this week and it was Ahhhhmazing!

• I took Tuesday off! It’s extremely rare for me to take a day off.. other than an occasional Sunday. I wanted to spend time with Kelbee so I took the whole day off on Tuesday.

• I realized my 10 year old little sister knows more about make up than me! Ever heard of Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lips?? Kelbee got me to try this awesome new lipstick and it stays on for hours. Love it!! Click here to learn more.

• We bought plants! Last weekend Aaron and I bought some plants for our side porch off the kitchen. We got lots of herbs, cherry tomatoes, cucumbers and a hanging basket of strawberries.

• As far as the booth business goes, we had a few slower days this week. However, on Friday night it picked up. I was working in my booth and was able to make the sale of 6 larger pieces within a 2 hour span.

• Favorite casual black slides sandals are on sell for $11.21 right now. So time to grab some!!

I have another special post about decorating with pots coming up soon so stay tuned & have a happy weekend! 

 

My Adult Busy Bag

Hi! So we’re doing a little Spring travels this weekend. We’re making it a quick combo trip and seeing both Aaron’s family and my sister’s family. From Alabama to Kentucky to Indiana then from Indian back to Alabama – we’ll be spending a lot of hours in the car.

Growing up, my mom used to pack us  “busy bags” when we went on trips. Ha, now I wonder if a “busy bag” is an actual thing or just something mom made up. Hmmmm, have you ever heard of a busy bag?

Well, now as an adult, I still have a busy bag. (I think my sister Kayla does too!) Over the years is has matured a little. I’ve traded my coloring books, fruit roll ups and children’s fiction for more grown up items.

What’s in it?

The essentials –  books, magazines, chapstick, lipstick and laptop. Just a few items that can keep my attention for hours.

Books

I usually bring along two books just in case one is a bummer. However, all the books in the Outlander series is amazing so no worries there!Magazines

Magazines are a must too.. sometimes my eyes get tired from reading so I like to look at pictures in magazines (child moment.. again). I read both The Magnolia Journal and The Farmhouse Movement cover to cover ever issue.

Chapstick/Lipstick

Let’s face it – long trips can me you feel yucky. Having these two items make me feel human again. Also, I like to have the lipstick on hand to freshen up before seeing any family or friends.

Laptop

Duhhhhhh.. Cause I’m a workaholic.

SHOUTOUT!!! 

Thanks you Initial Outfitters for the sweet, sweet cosmetic bag! It makes for happy traveling!

Spring Accessories – Initial Outfitters

  I’ve recently teamed up with an awesome company called Initial Outfitters! Last week I talked about some precious home decor goodies they sent over to me. This week is all about the fun accessories.

When choosing these accessories, I had SPRING on the brain – how appropriate with it being the week of Easter and Spring being in full swing!!

When picking out clothes or accessories, I always go for staple versatile pieces. Something neutral or several different blending colors so I can get as much wear as possible. Personally I like to get fewer but quality items and wear the HECK OUT EM’.

The River Walk Natural Stone Necklace is all of the things listed above. If boho meeting classic were a thing, it would be this sweet necklace. It has a nice blend of blues yet has enough neutral beads to go with anything! This necklace will quickly become your “go to” every day necklace. The quality is great and is sure to last you many years to come.

Let’s talk funky earrings! I needed some cute statement earrings to last all Spring and Summer long  – Hanging by a Thread Earring were just what I needed. Love these pink tassels!

Of all the accessories, the personalized cosmetic bag is my favorite. It’s adorable. I could totally use it as a clutch. Initial Outfitters offers different bag colors, embroidery colors and fonts. This little bag would make a wonderful gift.

It’s been a joy working with Initial Outfitters! I’m so pleased with the quality and CUTENESS of all their products!!

Friday Favorites – Initial Outfitters

Happy FriYAY!! I’m so excited for the weekend to be here. Recently I had a GREAT opportunity of teaming up with Initial Outfitters and I’m so excited to share my favorites from this AWESOME online company. I want to share some products I think you’ll like and share why I love them!

Ha, even the shipping box is cute!

There’s ALWAYS room for another pillow, right? Especially a cute personalized pillow. I love how neutral yet bold this pillow is! It’s neutral because of the color yet has the last name in bold black. This combo makes for an awesome statement pillow in any room!

Every living space must have one thing – COASTERS! And if you must have coasters why not order some that are cute and personalized!

This cutting board has to be the CUTEST cutting board I’ve ever seen!! It’s farmhouse worthy with personalization.. Perfect combo in my book! It has a sweet shiplap background with a cow, our last name and the year Aaron and I were married.

This cutting board would make a sweet wedding gift. I myself remember being a bride who LOVED gifts with my new last name! So this is a go to gift for the upcoming wedding season!

There’s a matching pot holder?? Yes way!! Well, I might just do some baking!! Seriously, this cute pot holder matches the cutting board and that alone can make cooking fun!

Okay, so that’s a few items I love from Initial Outfitters. All of these times are adorable and great quality. Again, this is an awesome place to find gifts for any occasion. I have a few more items to come – Next well talk accessories!

Friday Favorites

Hello y’all!! I’ve got a few favorites for this week I would like to share with ya! Let’s get to it!

The V-Neck That’s DOUBLE Good

Anyone else LOVE a v-neck tee? 🙋🏼Well, guess what.. this shirt is a DOUBLE v-neck!! 😱It’s yummy soft and just so happens to be 30% off right now!!

The Hanging Ferns

Spring is nearly here! Time to grab the leafy green plants and hang ’em!! I bought these hanging ferns the other week and totally LOVE them! They’re hanging in our kitchen widow. I think they’ll be great for Spring through Summer.

Speaking of Kitchen Window.. We Love Our Light

This is the pendant light we have above our kitchen sink. We found it online and I’ve been very pleased since the day we installed it. It would look great with an edison bulb but we just used a regular bulb. The style of this fixture  would look great with any cottage or farmhouse decor.
