SS Home: Living Room Inspiration

Now that my house has been put back together from our forced renovation from a water leak, I've been wanting to make it feel truly like home. I currently live in a rental house that my parents own, and for awhile, I just used everything from my apartments instead of buying new things to decorate because I wasn't sure where Stephen and I would end up living. The leak required a new couch sooner than later, so we ended up purchasing this one plus the love seat as one of our first big purchases together.

Coffee Date is taking on a new look. I'm excited to introduce my Friday series, Lately, which will be a similar format of Coffee Date but be shared each week. I love reading these posts so I'm excited to share them each Friday with things that I've come across that week or what's happening in life outside of blogging. I hope you enjoy catching up each week!

Something Borrowed

Andddd I'm back! Since right before Christmas, I've had a hard time staying in the blogging groove. First it was the stomach bug, then just a holiday hiatus, then busy work weeks and the ever crazy weekends! We have very few weekends between now and the end of September that hold no plans, and though I'm certainly not complaining, it definitely makes for a tired Sunday night. And real talk - there were some Sunday afternoons I just wanted to relax instead of taking blog pictures.

Coffee Date - Volume 10

What a busy January it has been thus far! I thought we were going to get a great snowstorm this weekend, but it was a steady 33 degrees and raining aside from a few snow flurries on Saturday afternoon. I'm still holding out on there being another snowstorm between now and spring, but I am headed to the mountains in a couple of weekends to go skiing with some friends, which I'm excited for!

Goals for 2017

When it comes to a new year and resolutions, I don't necessarily make them. But what I do think is great about a new year is that it's a fresh start. I've certainly set goals for the new year, and though some are general (like get in the shape for the wedding), I'm trying to set more tangible goals that I can really set out to accomplish.
