Happy Friday! I kjnow it was a short week for me since I had Monday and Tuesday off but the days have been jammed packed with a ton of errands. It was crazy and I didn’t get much rest. The good news is the temps are in the 40’s so hopefully some of the snow will melt. Tomorrow is my Dad’s birthday so I should be heading back to the South Shore to celebrate. So it is looking to be another busy weekend. Well let’s get to it then, you know the drill my five things for the week.
One. With the snow and the freezing temps came the ice. With the heavy ice comes damage. I came home yesterday from work to see our front gutter pulled down due to the weight of the ice. When it rains it pours.
Two. Are you guys loving the mugs or sick of them already?
Amanda from Voyage of MeeMee is a huge Harry Potter Fan so this one is for her:
Elle from Elle Sees is always sharing the most amazing beauty products. She really takes the time to really try out the products and gives honest feedback.
Jessica from Wonder What’s Next and Liz from Fitness Blondie are two more of my fitness beauties.
Three. I am waiting for the insurance money to come in to start the repairs on my half bath and basement. In the meantime I am working on looking for ideas on what I want to put back into the rooms. This is my inspiration for my half bath. The vanity will be the one I picked a week or two ago.
Four. This one is being dedicated to my Dad. My hero, my rock, my example of honor strength and character. He turns 66 on Saturday. I’ll be headed down to my Brother’s for dinner to celebrate with him. He knew how to rock the powder blue suits. Love you Dad!
Five. This could be my motto for my life.
I am also guest posting over at Another Clean Slate for Kate today so head over for a read about following your dreams.

I LOVE that bathroom inspiration! I’m redoing mine too along with my floors and the wainscoting is SO cute! And I love the mugs!
Thank you. I love how bright it is an I have pink tile in there now so the wainscoting will be a much better look! 😉 Thank you so much!

I love the mugs!!! Happy birthday to your dad 🙂

Kerry… OMG! 🙁 Now your gutter good grief. I hate this for you. What’s the latest on the bathroom? I am glad the temps are at least getting a little higher. Find a ray of sunshine where you can I guess, ha. I love that mug – you know too well. Have a great weekend with your dad, I love the picture of him.
Thank you. Luckily the condo account will pay for the repair so no extra money out of my pocket. I am waiting on the insurance to pay out so I can start the repair. I am hoping the warmer temps will melt most of the snow this weekend. Thank you girl, glad you like it! 🙂
I am SO sorry about your gutter damage. That’s just such a pain in the butt. As if the snow and ice aren’t bad enough–let’s add damage to it. Again, I’m sorry. I LOVE all of those mugs. I’ve got a weird love for mugs though–seems like maybe you do too? That print says it just right. I’ve been working really hard on that this year–making life actually FEEL good and not just “look” good. In fact, I think now it’s the opposite–our life here FEELS better than it looks. We worked hard to start refocusing this year, and I think it worked. Happy Friday!! And Happy Birthday to your dad!!!
Thank you. It will get fixed soon. Yes, I love mugs and am slowly building my collection. I think feeling good is so much better than looking good. It is much harder too. Happy Friday!
Love that picture of your dad. My dad wore a powder blue suit at my parents wedding…it’s pretty much my favorite thing in the world.
And loving your half bath inspiration pic- the colors are so sunny and cheerful!!
Isn’t it so funny seeing them in those suits! It was such the style back then. Yellow is my favorite color so it was perfect for me.
Sorry about the gutter 🙁 The hits of the snow/ice just keep on coming!
I really love that yellow bathroom…it’s so bright and cheerful! Have a fun weekend celebrating with your dad!
I know so many people are having much worse problems with pipes bursting and ice damage so I am considering myself lucky. Thank you so much!
Love that bathroom inspiration pic & happy early birthday to your dad! Ugh this snow and ice crap can just go away now! We have been raking our roof because a couple years ago the ice dams were so bad the water came into the house, hope you can get that fixed!
Thanks, it’s so bright and cheery! I am so over the snow and ice. Hopefully it will melt over the weekend! We have a condo account so the money is already in the budget for repairs so it will cover it, thankfully.
Have a great weekend!
Thank you! Hope you do as well!

It’s always something when it comes to home ownership. It will all work out though.

Love the mugs as always. And the inspiration for your half bath looks wonderful.

Happiest of birthday’s to your dad!! Sorry to hear about the gutter – seriously these things have the worst timing! Looking forward to seeing the progress of the half bath!! Hope you have a great weekend!
Thank you. So much snow and ice and it is still going. Luckily it will get fixed, and wasn’t worse. Hope you have a great weekend!
Yikes sorry about your gutter!! Hope it’s not too hard to fix.

Thank you. I will still do them, I am kinda loving coming up with them.
happy birthday to your dad! and that sucks about your gutter – jeez. it was finally a little warmer by us so some of the snow was able to melt a bit. fingers crossed for no more snow!
Thank you. It is raining today so a lot of the snow is melting and hopefully this weekend will be warm enough to get rid of the rest. Hopefully no more snow this Winter! It’s almost March!!
Oh no, your poor gutter!! Bad weather is the worst. Also, I LOVE the Harry Potter mug, and the quote. So perfect! Have a great weekend celebrating your Dad!
