Things I’m Loving Thursday

Good morning and happy Thursday! The girls have a few more days of break but things are quieting down around here…Only to gear up with projects and cleaning and school and school lunches and all of that other good weekly stuff.. As I jump back into posting, I thought I’d do another Things I’m Loving post. It’s been a while. *this post contains affiliate links.

In case you missed it, I’m a couple days into my whole house clean out.

It isn’t too late to start. Join in! I love, love, love to purge. Dropping those bags off a goodwill is like a breath of fresh air. I promise, I’ve never regretted putting forth the effort to have less.

Speaking of having less..oops….I feel like this is against that but I got new shoes for Christmas and they are my most favorite ever. Psst having new shoes isn’t bad, just donate a pair when you add the new ones to your closet.


I found them on clearance when my mom took me shopping. Because I loved them so much I got them. In a 7.5. I really need an 8. That’s how much I love them. I’m willing to put my feet as risk of discomfort so that they look like the happiest feet in the whole wide world. I wish I had found them on amazon first. **don’t tell my mom… All this to say, if you’re in between sizes, size up.

Another thing I’m loving, MARY POPPINS RETURNS!

It was just the most magical movie. If you haven’t seen it yet, you need to get there! The original was my favorite growing up. We actually went through more than one VHS. That’s how much of a favorite it was.

I was so happy when the girls loved the new one. We’ve also been listening to the soundtrack all week. Such great songs.

While we’re talking soundtracks. A friend told me about this one and I love it too.

It’s the Greatest Showman soundtrack but the songs are sung by lots of different recording artists. We loved the original so this is a fun change.

And since this is a blog about home and home things…and because you know how much I love area rugs…I picked this one to tell you about.

I picked up this blue diamond woven area rug from Target before heading to a clients house a couple weeks ago. It is so good in real life! The colors are awesome. It’s a great, thick weave. It’s not made to be reversible but it could totally be flipped for double the amount of life. It’s actually in the picture you saw at the top of this post. If you’re looking to add a little pop of color to a space, this one is so pretty.

Ok! That’s it for me. Continue to follow along with the clean out over on Instagram. It’s gonna be great!

I’ll see you on Tuesday for an update on our laundry room. Here were the plans if you mussed those.

Thanks for reading, friends!
