I'm doing What?

I didn't realize that it has been over 2 months since our last edition of "I'm doing what?". Sorry guys! I was in the midst of pulling together a "things that make me happy" post when I realized that most of the items actually belonged in this post.

It is kind of an obvious question to ask me what I've been doing because not only has my last week or two been filled party prep, then clean up, but I share a lot of my days on Instagram.

But, these posts are little snapshots I like to capture of moments around the house. Lately I have been in a mail frenzy. Sending out my first Hey, Oyster orders (THANK YOU!!) as well as receiving a very cool mix of e-friend surprises, belated birthday presents and a really lovely dress I was excited to start rocking from fellow-Albertan run Splurge & Co. The wrapping alone almost felt too pretty to open~

Wanna know what I was doing last week? Getting called a Diva by my favorite Barrista (is that the right term for a guy barrista? Feels like it should be barristum or barrister or something). I can't tell you how many times Holly has been spelled Holy on my coffee cups so I am just going to start telling them Diva when they ask. Don't even ask what the Shanana part is about.

Sometimes I need a Diva boost though, specially before heading over to ParkView, because I tend to be a bit of a softie with those guys. And I had to lay down some laws so I brought my Beyonce-fied Diva attitude with me on my last few trips.

I don't rock a mean mug very well.

I also found a few moments to switch out the kitchen nook rug for an extra Ikea rug I had in the closet. Simple white seems really refreshing and bright for now. Maybe I'll try my hand and Ombre again with this guy in the spring~

Last, but certainly not least, I have joined the ranks of washi tape addicts! It makes a really cute way to display Wren's art for a few days as she produces new pieces that then take the place of her older creations on the wall. And it saves Momma from finding new spots to lean or place her art!

A few other things I've been up to but will share in separate posts coming up:
-easy valentines treats
-we FINALLY hung the new light at the front door
-first coat of paint it up on the walls at Parkview and I am in LOVE with the color

This is such a fun post! I am a total washi tape addict too ;) And I love your Diva starbucks identity! I've gotten a look or two when I say my name is Summer so maybe I'll try an alias sometime ;)

I'm obsessed with that rocking chair! Where is it from? I'd love it for my home office!
