Friday Finds: Here’s what I’ve fallen head over heels for this week

Happy Friday!!!

What a week it’s been with far too much to do and so little time to get it all done … thank goodness the weekend is almost here!  We have SO much to look forward to this weekend with our precious little man turning two on Saturday (I can’t believe it) and who could forget all of those lovely little treasures I purchased for our gallery wall that I just can’t wait to put up?!

Hoping you enjoy this week’s finds as much as I have!

Friday Finds: My Favorite Swoon-Worthy Posts & Tutorials this Week

This week has been SO CRAZY BUSY as we get ready to run off to Mexico! Yes, for 8 blissful days, we’ll be visiting C’s grandparents and, maybe more importantly for Carson, enjoying their swimming pool!  Anyone that knows me, knows that not only does this mean a week of stressing about packing (seriously, is there anything more daunting than having to know exactly what you’ll need for the next week?!), but also making sure my house is clean immaculate for our return … it will be SO worth it when we are exploring Guayabitos and catching up with our family.  I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t also looking forward to sleeping sipping on margaritas while watching Carson enjoy some quality time with his Grandparents!

I wish I could say that I’d planned ahead and made sure y’all would have something to enjoy while I was away, but new blog + spur of the moment trip = too much to do & not enough time plan it, let alone do it in.  Rest assured that what I have in store for you over the next few weeks is so UNBELIEVABLY exciting, there’s no doubt that it’ll be worth the wait!  I can hardly stand not blurting it all out now, but I promise you won’t want to miss what’s coming!!!

In the mean time, enjoy my favorites this week:

Friday Finds: Here are some of my favorites from this week

It’s been another week of lovely weather in Rossland, so we’ve been enjoying many walks and have had some lovely playdates at the park.

Since experimenting with chalk paint on Tuesday (read about it here), I’ve been super busy crossing a million boring tasks off my ever growing to-do list.  Though it feels good to get things done, it hasn’t been much fun and certainly hasn’t inspired me to write much.  I did start work on a gallery wall (those that follow me on making it in the mountains facebook will have seen some pictures).  I had full intentions of making Brady help me put it up that night, but as I scoured coralpinterest for some inspiration, I ended up finding more pieces to add to it … FIGURES! Anybody that knows me, knows that I can ALWAYS find a reason to shop online (maybe Brady’s suggestion of a post about NOT shopping for a month wasn’t such a bad idea!).   So, even though I’m CRAZY excited to share what I’ve come up with, it’ll have to stay spread out on our guest bed for a while (I promise to share some sneak-peeks on bluefb as things arrive!)  .

This weekend will be a busy one, working to accomplish more things that nobody wants to do, let alone read about on a blog (taxes, cleaning windows and installing screens).  I promise that I do have some fun posts in mind to get us all through it though! 😉  For now, I’ll leave you with some of my favorite things this week:

Friday Finds – Here’s what I’m crushing on this week

I really don’t want to jinx it, but I think perhaps, just maybe, Spring may have actually arrived on time this year!!! We’ve been enjoying the great outdoors and taking in the gorgeous Spring weather all week. Seriously, I am SO excited for Summer that I can’t even fathom complaining once about the heat (I can’t believe I just put that in writing!).

Anyway, as always, I’ve been super busy around the house this week planting an indoor herb garden (pictures to come soon), making shopping lists (yes, multiple) for our trip down to Spokane this weekend & how could I forget the painting and “distressing” of those elusive shelves I keep talking about (hoping to get them up on the wall this weekend, so I can post about them next week!!!). I’ve also spent enormous (I’m talking embarrassingly huge) amounts of time in front of the computer this week – not only did I search for new blogs to nominate in passing along my Liebster Award, I also worked incredibly hard to rework my blog design over the last few days and I’m actually pretty thrilled with how it’s all come together!

I came across some absolutely AMAZING ideas and posts this week in my search of fabulous new blogs and I am so excited to share some of them with you today!

Friday Finds

We’ve had such a lovely week in sunny Rossland!  I’ve FINALLY been able to run outside, which is infinitely less boring than running on the treadmill.  I’d forgotten how much I enjoy the challenge, fresh air & time to myself … it’s SO nice to find myself looking forward to my runs again!  Carson has a new pair of rain boots and so, we have been putting them to the test every chance we get.  Though we are absolutely loving this amazing taste of Spring, Carson is definitely hoping for some rain so he has an excuse to play with his new umbrella (he’s woken up asking for it every day since he got it!).  This weekend I’m really hoping to conquer those shelves I’ve been talking about for far too long – hopefully I’ll have another finished project to share next week.  In the mean time, here are my favorite finds from this week:

It’s been another busy week in the Mercer house – is there ever any other kind? We’ve been getting over the last bit of our colds, working on some shelves for the landing on the stairs, and enjoying more time at the pool with swimming lessons. We’re hoping to have a super productive weekend finishing up the shelves and heading to Nelson for some furniture shopping – wahoo! Though we’ll just be looking and definitely won’t be bringing anything big home with us, I’m super excited!!!
