Happy Friday! What are your plans for this weekend? The weather has been so unpredictable these past few days. In one day, you will notice it rained, then the sun appeared, then it snowed. So crazy! A couple of days ago, we had 50 mile per hour winds that it ripped off our privacy fence from our deck…literally the slats came apart and were laying on the grass! Luckily the installers will be able to put it all back together.
While it doesn’t feel quite like spring weather, I’m still looking at sprucing up my spring wardrobe – starting with some casual footwear. For today’s ‘Friday’s finds’, I’ve rounded up my favorite spring shoes to wear from Target. I’m loving the trending slip-on mules and slip-on sneakers with tucked in laces. And since the month of April is known for lots of rainy days, the collaboration of Hunter and Target for their rainboots, could not come at a better time. Best believe, I will be the first in line on April 14th when the Hunter collection hits the Target shelves!

I think we can all agree, we feel pretty special when we open are eyes and are greeted in bed with a bed tray filled with your favorite breakfast foods. You know it’s going to be a good morning! When it comes to the weekends, we pretty much know at our house if we have plans for the day or not. We love it when we get to sleep in, have a great breakfast in bed, then snuggle up and watch Netflix. Oh, how we enjoy a lazy Saturday or Sunday.
Last week while shopping at Target, I found this Hearth & Hand Breakfast Bed Tray Set and was attracted to the details of this set. The solid wood tray with leather handles includes 10 paper placemats, 10 paper menus, and a ‘love you’ banner. I’m mean how cute is that, right?! I don’t think you have to wait for a special occasion to surprise your better half with breakfast in bed. While the tray is not large enough to serve two, it can fit two small salad plate size dishes and two cups of coffee.
For all you guys out there, how special would it be to have your child(ren) greet mom this Mother’s day and surprise her with a plate full of delicious breakfast in bed?!

Happy Monday! Hope you all had a wonderful Easter Sunday. We were pretty bummed when we looked out our window this morning to find snow on the ground. While we wait for warmer days, greener grass, and blooming flowers, I have added a spring vibe inside our home to keep it feeling fresh and bright. In case you missed my bedroom spring refresh, click here to read the post.
Keep reading to see how I was able to add a spring vibe to my ottoman tray in 3 very simple ways.
#1. New Scented Candle
The first thing I did was swap out our previous candle with this beautiful Gilded Cage fragrant candle, designed with singing birds. I adore birds and love listening to their chirping and singing, while sitting outdoors on our deck. The jar with lid is so spring-inspired and it was the perfect addition to our ottoman tray! The scent is Lemon Verbena – a light citrus scent.
#2. New Coffee-Table Book
Nothing says spring and summer than a stunning array of blooms, am I right? Another item I swapped out of our ottoman tray is our coffee-table book. I recently purchased this ‘Color Me Floral’ book by Kiana Underwood. While the pages inside this book are gorgeous, inspiring and helpful, the cover lends that bright, spring-vibe I wanted to create on our tray.
#3. A new Flower Vase
The third item I replaced on our ottoman tray was with this lovely Blossoms Blush Vase. The handcrafted ceramic design of blooms and butterflies on this vase is a beautiful reminder of nature’s whimsical beauty in the spring and summer seasons.
Viola! With swapping out three decor items, I was able to give our ottoman tray a spring refresh – a focal point when guests enter our living room.

Happy Friday! It’s been a bit difficult to get back into the swing of things this week after being on a week vacation. To top it off, I’m now coming down with a cold – I guess coming from warm 80 degree weather to a chilly 50 degree can do that to you.
While in Florida, I visited the cutest gift shop. The store was filled with all my favorite things…scented candles and entertaining essentials. Below is a few of the items I picked up – perfect for hosting a spring/summer gathering. Cocktails anyone?
How pretty is my round-up of pretty handbags? I’m obsessed with the stylish trends of soft blush-pink tones, feminine floral prints and the natural straw weave material! With the spring and summer months, any of these handbags will elevate and brighten your look.
Which one is your fav?
