New Year, New Look

Happy 2016, friends!

Notice anything different around here?!?  The ol' blog got a little face lift this weekend and I couldn't be happier with the results.  A cleaner and simpler design, streamlined links and even a new shop page that I'm loving and should hopefully make the visiting experience better for you guys as well!  I also ordered a new camera (YAY) yesterday, so much better photos will be coming your way soon, too - as long as I can figure out how to use the thing :)  


As for the rest of our weekend... perfection.  We rang in the New Years with our friends at our next door neighbors house and it was just the low-key casual night that we were looking for.  Other than that, we stuck close to home, perfecting the balance between productive and lazy.

Productive: we completely emptied out the room that will be the baby's, packed away all of our Christmas decor (tear), deep cleaned the house, went for nice long walks almost every day and bought and started working on an old dresser that we're going to refurbish for our bedroom.  Heck, I even started reading a book about cleaning/tidying up - if that's not productive, I don't know what is.  

Lazy: we watched an entire season of Lost (about to start the last one already!), didn't get off the couch the entire New Years Day, and managed to eat nonstop.  Mexican, pizza, Chinese... we ate it all this weekend.  Hence why a healthy eats post will be coming your way tomorrow ;)

Hope you all had a happy + safe holiday and that your new year is off to a fabulous start!

  23. Love the new look! I'm going to do something soon too..for my big one year blogiversary. I'm with you on the simple black and white look ;) But who knows. I always get distracted by pink lol. Your new years sounds more exciting than ours if that makes you feel any better. We ate Ben & Jerrys in bed while watching the msu game on the mini iPad because we don't have cable anymore haha. (Well I mostly played on the phone, can't watch football to save my life.) And I'm seriously impressed by your commitment to Lost. I've been starting and abandoning a lot of series lately.
