#SchueCasa: Living Room Inspiration

Ah the living room. I will say that this room will be tricky to not try to "fill" right away. Ideally, I would like to move our sectional up to the playroom and have more of a grown up space in our main living room, but I also want to buy pieces that are worth the investment and/or really want fits the space. I love the idea of mixing a leather couch with a love seat and two accent chairs...all neutral so we can have some fun with the accent pillows. And we are planning to have the ceiling open to the second floor, so a big, statement chandelier is a must!

We would also love built-ins around the fireplace and TV, so whether we are able to do that during the build or after, I am looking forward to that extra storage!

Here are some more photos to showcase the inspiration I have in mind...

You can tell I have a major obsession with Amber Interiors and McGee Studio! Two of my favorites!

Spring Trends to Love

Spring is officially here, though you wouldn't know it up here in Tahoe! ;) All the more reason to start dreaming of a wardrobe that consists more of dresses and open-toed shoes, rather than parkas and mittens! Here are some of the trends that I'm loving right now...

Blue Patterns
There are so many gorgeous blue patterns out for spring right now...like this checked dress, this tie-dye wrapped one-piece, and this off-the-shoulder floral dress!  

Swing Jacket
A casual look that pairs well with spring staples. Loving this army green (this too), this pretty pink and this cream color!

Honorable mention also goes to the trench vest!

Easy, chic and practical...these are the best for on-the-go women! Loving this heeled pair, this silver pair and this affordable pair.

Raw + Undone Denim Hems
There are so many good options out there, like this Madewell pair (these too), this super affordable pair and a pair worth investing in.

Suede Blush
So many pretty suede blush items out there, like this tote, these heeled sandals, and this gorgeous jacket!

Shop more of my favorites in the tab at the top! ;)

Flying Solo with Two Toddlers

I've been flying solo for the last four days and though I know this is not a big deal in terms of doing the whole parenthood thing, for me, it meant wrangling children in the mornings so that we all got to where we needed to be in time, bedtime routine with two-on-one and basically keeping my sanity!

I am happy to report that we all survived and had fun in the process...here are some of our adventures...

We kicked off the weekend with St. Patrick's Day. I totally panicked that morning and realized that I needed to do something so I ran a trail of Cheerios from the boys bedrooms, put green milk in their cereal, cut up a gift bag to make rainbow placements and let a "surprise" of green dye in the toilet. Ethan was SO excited about it, it made the hustle worth it. He's still talking about it three days later, which says something!

Later that day, we had special pictures taken in Ethan's 4 year old outfit. This outfit was worn by his grandma's family, his dad and now him, so it's pretty darn special!

When I picked them up that day, they were pooped!

I loved really seeing the boys play and hear all the cute things they would say to each other. Each night, when they went to bed, Ethan would hug him and say how much he loves his brother and how he'll love him forever. Melt.my.heart.

Thankfully, we had a fun birthday party on Saturday, which was great for burning energy, while subsequently overdosing on sugar!

Pizza night on Saturday night with friends!

Wyatt copies everything his brother does, so naturally, he wanted to float on his belly in the bath.

I've decided Sunday morning baths are the way to go...just look at these happy guys!

Ethan has his first soccer game on Sunday...their team name is the 'Jammers' and Ryan's aunt was beyond gracious in helping coach the team in his absence. Ethan had a blast and loves bragging about being the "star" of the team and making a "goaler"! Love him.

Shopping with two...a success! As long as there are cuties and cookies nearby...

And as I said before, monkey see, monkey do. Plus Wyatt has remnants of his cutie down the front of his shirt! ;)

I survived thanks to support from my friends and family, lots of giggles and grace with the boys and of course, wine. I appreciate my husband 1000x more in these moments...and as I type this, I'm hearing his booming voice read The Lorax to Ethan...thank goodness he's home!

Somewhere Over The Rainbow

Tomorrow is St. Patty's Day and instead of green, I'm dreaming of all things rainbows! Did anyone ever watch Rainbow Brite? That swimsuit is such a great throwback, don't you think? And I'm dying over those cute sandals too! So many adorable ways to rock the colors of the rainbow for all the kiddos!

Maybe this weekend, I'll get ambitious and make this too! ;)
