Hello there little magnolia blooms! We spent the morning/afternoon at the zoo to celebrate my youngest's 3rd birthday today. 👧🏻🎀🎂 So much fun to be outside enjoying the nice weather! Is Spring springing yet where you are? 🌸🌺🌤🌷

Oh you are the just sweetest, little Roxy Cat! 💗I love this little furball so much...she's almost 14 years old and has been such a faithful little friend. She's been with me since my vintage Victorian downtown studio apartment days (and working at the State Capitol...and through getting married, moving to a new City (and a few different homes), babies, and just life. She's slowing down a little and her senior status is starting to show. Roxy pretty much sleeps all day long curled up on a pile of blankets that she claimed as her own. She has the best purrrr and meows, and I swear she knows exactly what I'm saying when I talk to her. I know we can't have them with us forever, so I'm trying to enjoy every cuddle and snuggle I can get from her! (Although I'm in total denial that she is getting old - and a couple of friends that have kitties her age have had to recently say "goodbye for now" to their kitties. 😭) •

Banana Bread with Chocolate Chips for breakfast? OK! 😜 Things have been a bit crazy around here... January started off amazing! But things fell apart towards the last half of the month. Between sick kids, a sick husband, sick myself (blah!), my car having issues (which have been resolved), and lots of other not fun to talk about things...well...I'm happy to welcome February with open arms! It's a gorgeous day, and supposed to be in the mid 70's all week. Bring on the spring-time sunshine! 😎 But before I tackle my to-do list today, I'll be over here eating some of this delish banana 🍌 bread and drinking my coffee ☕️ You can find the recipe at: www.thedottednest.com (link in profile). So what are your weekend plans? Baking banana bread, right? 😉 •

Valentine's Day is one of my favorite "holidays" to decorate for! I'm keeping it simple this year...twinkle lights and some hearts cut out of a paper grocery bag. I'm actually kind of sick with a fun snotty cold today (thank you kids!) but at least I have a few cozy and pretty things to look at while I'm feeling yucky! Do you decorate for Valentine's Day? 💗

Not the pretty "after" picture, but it is clean and simple winter whites! So Christmas is down and I'm kind of loving the fresh clean slate. Of course, with Christmas put away it makes me REALLY want to get started on the fireplace makeover. Ugh. I can't wait! Soon... Also? I'm not putting the twinkle lights away yet. 😜 They're a cheerful distraction from the gloomy rain outside. How's the weather where you are? #thedottednest
I think I'm a little too excited about my color-coded calendar for 2018 🌈 [AD] I don't really like New Years resolutions...but I do like the idea of small goals! So my goal for 2018 (ok, call it a resolution if you must!) is to be more intentional with my time. I'm trying out a new color-coded system to help me stay on top of things, and these happy colorful plastic see-through folders from @stemsfxsupplies are perfect for helping me stay organized! You can purchase through the link below (just copy and paste if you're on a desktop!). Cheers to a new year and a fresh calendar! #thedottednest •

Is anyone else moving slow through the new year so far??? We're still enjoying winter break, and I feel like all I do is drink coffee! (And eat - specifically cookies - but we won't talk about that 😂) I'm actually kind of excited to get back into our schedule/routine next Monday. How is 2018 treating you so far??? #thedottednest •
