'Five Things' Friday

What a week it's been! My computer stopped working last week and I had wait 6 days until my husband could finally fix it (thank goodness for my iPhone!). And my poor little baby has been teething, which has resulted in him skipping naps / clinging to me every minute of the day, forcing me to stop everything and just be in the moment. I'm pretty sure God was telling me (well, actually forcing me) to slow down and relax. I've been on the go, go, go for months and it was time to pause and refocus. Do you ever just shut everything down so you can take a deep breath and reflect on what's important in your life? Sometimes it's essential! Hope you have a wonderful and happy weekend! I'm off to bake a cake and prep for the small dinner party we're having tonight to celebrate my hubby's birthday. Cheers - xoxo Julie

One. Our dining room doubles as my home office and I finally gave in and completely moved all of my baskets of fabric / wallpaper / tile samples to my closet. Luke just couldn't resist pulling everything out of the baskets and I got tired of constantly trying to stop him. Now he can play with his toys in wins!

Two. Next week marks the 5 YEAR anniversary of Belle Maison! To celebrate, I've been working with a graphic designer on a blog face lift, which I hope to reveal next week. Can't wait!!!

Three. Loving the new prints & wovens line by Mary McDonald for Schumacher. This living room is absolutely gorgeous - the orange, cream and taupe color combination is so unexpected! Click here to see the whole collection.

Four. I need to make a copy of this and hang it above my desk! [Image source]

Five. Zara Home has some exquisite new tabletop accents in time for spring! Colorful dishware, linens and more - perfect for Easter or a fun Sunday brunch.



  1. Have a fab weekend. I enjoy your blog. Look forward to seeing your facelift!

  2. What a great list! I may have to steal it!
    Happy fifth year and looking forward to this blog lift :)

  3. The best advice I can give another mama is to get to whole foods and get their teething drops camilia teething!
    It will save your life and make the baby oh so happpy!!!
    It seriously turned my son from a sad baby to a baby who loved life.

  4. Have a great weekend! Beautiful post, that list is so very true
