Five faves || positivity

hosted by Christy at fountains of home this, really, favoUrites, right?

1 || morning motivation

I saw this on Pinterest last night as I was scrolling for bathroom ideas before bed, and it really hit me. I've been stressed about work deadlines lately, and in response to that stress doing a lot of unhelpful procrastination. I decided to take today by this mantra: I got up, showered right away (super unusual for me, working from home), and went right to work.

It's amazing how much better I feel about the outcome of today with just those little changes -- even if everything else totally stinks, I'll count today as a win.

2 || summery thoughts

It's been actually warm here, warm enough for me to open the windows in my office and enjoy the breeze that is worth the paper shuffling I had to do to make sure nothing got lost. This candle from Target (which I found dinged and on super clearance) is adding to my urgent desire for winter to be done and summer to come.

3 || taro by alt-J

I know the song is kinda old news, but the hook in the chorus is amazing. You should listen to it here (I haven't checked out the music video so here's a song-only version on Youtube).

also, isn't their album art lovely?

4 || painting plans

Painting/priming of the baby's room starts tonight, finally! 

I'm also trying to pick a color for the ceiling of the bathroom -- how similar do you think those two colors are? I'm a little scared to pick something bold like painting the ceiling a color and leaving the walls blank, but #adventure, right?

5 || baby kicks

I know I post a lot about the little one but I am sincerely enjoying the workout baby G seems to be getting this morning. It's unusual for him/her to be up and about this early in the day, so I'm loving the little distractions every so often.

Can't wait to hold those little feet in my hands.

Check out the rest of the favoUrites over at fountains of home this week!


  1. You can NEVER post too much about babies!! I'm preggo with #6 and I have just as much joy and excitement with this one as the rest, and I share it unabashedly on my blog too! Congratulations - I hope you are feeling well!

  2. Oh I just love painting for a baby's room! That colour looks great, and I think I saw on some home improvement show this week a slightly darker shade of it on a ceiling and I thought it looked amazing! I kinda want to get enough nerve to try it in my house sometime. Love baby kicks!
