New Blog Design!

You might have noticed things look a bit different around here. :)  I've been wanting to refresh my blog since I've had pretty much the same design and color scheme (yellow and aqua) since I began my blog 4 years ago.  Dang, has it really been 4 years?!  Awhile ago, my header got hijacked and I had to quickly replace it with something, so we just made one in my color scheme that looked like the Honey We're Healthy blog header.  But, in the back of my mind, I wanted to create something different, with a monogram since Honey We're Home has nice symmetry. 

The new pink and blush tones feel feminine and fresh against the white background.  Big thanks to Kelly of Fabulous K who pulled the design together.  Not only is Kelly a talented blog designer, she's an amazing stylist and photographer.  Her Instagram (fabkstyle) is among my favorite.   And her dog!

As far as this blog, we kept things mostly in the same arrangement, so you can easily find older posts by category.  I still read blogs and love to look at the archives.  And one of my favorite parts of the new design is the shiny gold foil social media circles.  You can click those at the top of my blog to connect with me elsewhere.

Also, today I have the pleasure of stopping by Sara Mueller's blog, A Dose of Pretty, and participating in her Mommy's Behind the Blog series.  Please pop over if you get a chance!

Our Easter Table

We're ready for Easter over here!  I've got the table all set for Sunday dinner and the Easter baskets filled.  We'll be having ham, mac and cheese, corn on the cob, cranberry dressing and dinner rolls.  The table is dressed with our wedding china plates that I need to use more often, green mason jars for water cups, and hydrangeas in two shades of purple.  

This table was inspired by this floral table runner with a combination of calming green, blue and green that I paired with blue cloth placemats that I've had for ages.

My favorite part of this table is the green mason jars with yellow and white paper straws and adorable Easter tags.

I printed the tags from Lia Griffith, made a hole with a punch, and tied the tags around the jars with pale pink ribbon. 

I think they came out so cute!

As for the kids, I filled their easter baskets with goodies and sweet treats.

And the big kid won't be forgotten; he'll get a special treat of his own- his favorite Easter candy. 

Hope you have a wonder Easter celebration with your loved ones!

See the rest of our Easter dining room HERE.

P.S. This post is my 1,000th post!  What a great holiday to celebrate that milestone with!

Happy Good Friday!

Happy Good Friday friends!  I'm so happy to have my Grandma in town from California.  We haven't seen her since my son was 1, so it's great having her here.  I added some touches of pink to her room since it's her favorite color.  :) The pillows and lamp are from Homegoods.

We'll be  hosting Easter dinner with my family at our house and having an egg hunt with the kids on Sunday.  This is the first year my son is starting to understand why we celebrate Easter, which makes the holiday extra special.  

Hope you have a great weekend!

I've been keeping up with my workout training and meal plan.  You can read my ab routine on Honey We're Healthy.  I'm really starting to see some changes!
