Fabulous Friday

I cannot believe that we are already to Friday again! I swear that it was just Friday a couple days ago.  Don't get me wrong I am so looking forward to the 3 day weekend ahead!

Messy Hair don't care!!


Life on the Parsons Farm

First of all I wanted to thank everyone for all the kind words and support from my last post.  It really was one of the first times I have really put myself out there and I am just so grateful for all the positive vibes you sent my way!!  It truly was a great encouragement!!

I am painting this weekend!!  Our Master Bath is in need of a major makeover - but one that doesn't break the bank!  Originally I was just planning on painting the cabinets and trim but the more I thought about it - if I'm already painting I might as well do the walls too.  I am hoping for our bathroom to have a nice clean and fresh look so I am going Shades of Gray! Why is gray the hardest colors to pick out (aside from white)?  After lots of research, paint swatches, and deliberation I finally chose two shades of gray.  Hopefully I can really get my rear in gear and get all the painting done!! Then we just have to pick our flooring and accessories.

Woodland Fairy Tea Party

Last week I shared a photo of a cake that is serving as inspiration for "Ellie's Enchanted Birthday" in May.  I have been perusing Pinterest like its my job.  You can see all of her party inspiration on the board I made here.  Of course I probably won't execute it as well as most of these pictures but I am so excited for it.  I know that I have quite a few things from her 1st birthday that I can re-use and know that I will be able to use these decorations again someday!


As I mentioned above we have a 3 day weekend ahead all because of Martin Luther King Jr. He was the chief spokesman for the nonviolent activism for Civil Rights protesting racism in state and federal law.  I am so inspired by his leadership and incredibly grateful for his success.  While the world (and our country) may not be perfect, he definitely helped us take a step in the right direction and I am so glad that I do not live in the Pre-Civil Rights era.

Valentine's Day... It's a Trap!  I saw the original of this meme and immediately thought of Big Bang Theory and so looked for a Sheldon Cooper version but couldn’t find one. So I took a minute to make my own.

  1. Cant wait to see the bathroom makeover, great colors. Also that party was done by @melanieburke on IG, The Alison Show just did a whole party review too where she interviewed her. Such cute ideas.

  2. Love that you are already party planning for an event in May. Girlfriend is on top of it! ;) Can't wait for the makeover. You are soooo right. Gray is so difficult to pick out! We bought so many samples of gray before actually painting, yet the other rooms we one or two samples and done! Good luck!

  3. The Valentine's memes are too funny! Thanks for adding to The Pick!

  4. I can't wait to see pictures of how her party looks in the end!

  5. I think the color Ellie gray is a sign :)

    I picked up approximately 50 white swatches from Home Depot last night. Yes white is just as hard as gray!!

  6. Love, love, love the Ellie gray color! It's amazing what a little paint can do for a room. Good luck getting it painted. :)
