WHW: Random

Hey y'all! This week has been crazy busy thus far and the month of September pretty much scares me to death (which sucks because I adore all things Fall) because I do not have a single free weekend. My BIL is getting married this Saturday, (cannot wait to celebrate and see Andi's debut as a flower girl) I'm coordinating a wedding out of town the next weekend, Mama and I head to the beach the next and then I finish out the month with another wedding. Whew! I still have my eye on all things design even in the midst of the craziness. We went and looked at countertops and I'm really thinking about taking the plunge and doing the contrasting island/countertops throughout. Take a look below and let me know your thoughts on the black island.

I finally scored my first fiddle fig tree and I'm literally praying every night that I don't kill him. Hayneedle was running an awesome sale on planters - I'm talking those $200 gorgeous oriental planters were marked down to $78 bucks y'all - so I snagged one immediately. He looks gorgeous and I hope he thrives. Thanks for the tips on IG last week!

Also on my radar are these seasonings from Trader Joes. I feel like everyone in the free world has a Trader Joes but us so luckily I found them on Amazon. There's so many yummy recipes I've seen floating around and I can't wait to add these to the spice drawer.

Speaking of recipes, Home Chef is still going strong in my household (let me know if you want to try it and I'll send you a $30 off code) but its not delivered until this evening so last night we tried the Turkey Lettuce Wrap recipe that Christina shared and it was delish y'all!

Lastly, tomorrow is school picture day for this cutie and she couldn't be more excited! She is absolutely loving school and I am so so proud of my little monkey-doodle. She's making friends, staying on green light and coming home with so many new things to share with me (including all 4 oceans "bacific" is her fav)

Happy Wednesday y'all and thanks for linking up!

  1. I think the contrasting island would look awesome!!! And good luck with your busy month - it can be so hectic, but surely lots of awesome memories will be made!

  2. Ah I feel you with that busy month! Wedding season isn't over for me either. I am loving those seasonings from TJs too!! Can't wait to see the countertops!

  3. I love the contrasting island! July and August were nuts for me and I'm really hoping things settle down in September if only a tad. I'd love to try out this meal service...we tried Hello Fresh and it was so fun. Would love to know what all you use the Everything but the Bagel seasoning for. I had no clue I could buy on Amazon!!

  4. Aw, I'm glad your little one is loving school and how fun she has picture day tomorrow! Wow, you are definitely busy in September - so many weddings! I hope it's a fun month though.


    1. I think the contrasting island will look amazing - I am a huge fan of non-matchy matchy stuff if you know what I mean! :) I am guessing you guys have the same coloured coded behaviour system as we do in the UK (where we all dread our child coming home 'with a red')? Miss Andi looks so proud of her pink dress - can't wait to see her as a flower girl? Are you a wedding co-ordinator by the way?

  5. i love the contrasting cabinets/island! such a good look. oh those turkey lettuce wraps look delish. i haven't tried any of those TJ spices, but i love their onion salt one. so good!

  6. Love the black island! My sister has a navy blue one contrasting with her distressed beige cabinets and it looks so good. Enjoy all the weddings!

  7. I LOVE the black island. It's not normally something I'd go for but that kitchen is gorgeous. And let us know how your fiddle leaf fig goes... I want one, too, but I'm holding off becuase I just know I'll kill it!

  8. I saw those lettuce wraps. I am totally going to make them. I love that plant pot. It is so pretty.

  9. “Bacific.” I love it! And I think the contrasting island would look pretty!
