A Promise is a Promise, Even if it's Late!


So last week, when I finally got back to the ole blog I promised you all that the link party would resume like normal on Friday!  Weeeeeelllllll, I clearly didn't get the party up in time, and then well.....I spent most of Friday on a flight to surprise a girlfriend! It's been a super fun weekend and I won't be home for a few more days, but I just really wanted to get the party up and going so I can see what you all have been working on!







Happy Linking!

There's been a lot going on around here!



Holy Moly!  I have not blogged in nearly three weeks, and I miss my bloggy friends!  
I've been under the weather these last few weeks, and am just now starting to feel better and get back to all fun extras.
I received several lovely emails from  my fabulous readers checking in and making sure everything was ok, Thank YOU!  You all are so sweet!

I do have some exciting news to tell you all!
WE'RE MOVING!



YUP, we're finally get a bigger place.  I'm very excited!  Though also feeling overwhelmed with the whole packing up your life in a box process!
  How do you all do it?
Do you all have any tried and true tips for the whole process??
Please share them!!




We have until the end of March to get everything packed and ready and while we are not moving very far away and our current place is small, it still seems a bit daunting to even think about it! 
So that's my exciting news!  Do you all have any huge changes coming up? 
The regular Friday Link Party will start up again this week, so make sure you come by and link up anything I may have missed these last few weeks!

Chanel Artwork!




First off I have to say THANK YOU  for all the understanding comments about me trying to add exercise back into my daily life, AND balance this ole blog!  You all are so great and supportive!  Thank you!
I've been getting in a few Zumba classes over the last week, and love it!
I've still been working on a few things around here as well, one recent little change I made to the living room, was adding a new piece of artwork to my gallery wall!
You can read a about some of its transformation here.
I finished this gold and black Chanel inspired artwork about a month ago, but didn't really know where I was going to put it.  Well, about a week ago it became the newest addition to my Gallery Wall!  I just love it!

















































Isn't this little guy cute!  A very nice friend surprised me with this little treat from my new favorite store
 C Wonder!








I got off topic of the Chanel artwork, just a little bit, but I had to show you all the gorgeous flowers Josh brought home last night!  I also love playing with my new camera!
So what have you all been up to this week!?
Finish any fabulous projects??
Are there any great new workout classes besides Zumba that I should try???

It's time to get real; a Link Party and some features!


OK, so it's time to come clean with all my fabulous readers.  You may have noticed that the posts have gotten somewhat lite lately and I wanted you all to know why!  When I started this blog over a year ago, I never imaged the amount of time required to maintain this ole blog!  I fell in love with everything about sharing my projects with all of you, and your feedback has been tremendously fabulous!!!!!
But something bad happened when I started this blog, something that I'm now just realizing.....I stopped working out and in consequence over the last year I have gained TWO dress sizes!!!  Yikes!!!   
So I'm asking for a little patience from all of you as I try to balance adding exercise back into my daily routine!  It will take me a bit to figure out the right balance of working out and working on the blog, so bare with me as I try to figure it all out!!

Now on to some features!!!!
Check out this super fun project from Tiffany at Living Savvy
She also made this without spending a dime!!
Pretty Sweet!!




How about a gorgeous bedroom makeover inspiration to get us started in the New Year redos!!
Creatively Living completely made over her room on a budget!!










Now it's time for the good stuff! 
Link up everything you've been working on this week, link up as many projects as you like, and don't forget to visit other links and leave some comment love!
Everybody loves a comment-er! 

Happy Linking!!

I'm sitting here admiring my Christmas tree that has yet to be put away!  At least this year, I'll be good and tired of it by the time I actually get around to putting it all away!  In case your wondering I do have a few new DIY projects up my sleeve for the coming weeks, one which I hopefully plan to finish this weekend!  It's been a loonnnnnnnngggggg project, I think I started working on this particular project back in OCTOBER!!!  I know!!  I told you it was a long time getting this project done!  Anywhooooo.....I did order a few things from Ikea the other day and managed to get them put together.  I'm still tweaking a few little things for the redo I'm planning for the project, but hopefully I'll get it all done soon!














Two of these small wood Ikea dressers will get a complete makeover and find a home in my bedroom!  I can't wait for the added storage I'll get in the room!  It's much needed!
So what have you all been working on this week?!?

How to dress like A Blonde's DIY Life...



When A { Blonde's } DIY Life first started my colors for the blog were navy and kelly green,  or that's what I was going for.  However,  I soon changed the colors as I found too many other blogs using that color scheme, and I just didn't want some blog that looked like what everyone else had!  
The more I got into designing the images and layout you see here on the blog, the more I fell in love with this color combo, navy and hot pink!!  I've fallen so hard for this color combo, it's started to make an appearance in my wardrobe!  Check out a few of the pieces I've added to my wardrobe recently!!




You can find this Lilly Pulitzer tunic top HERE!!





This scarf is a favorite of mine!!  Also Lilly Pulitzer, but I don't believe you can find if for sale any more!  It sold out fast!




Do you see my gold glittery circles?!?!   I loved adding them to the image for the new link party!!
So how about some gold glitter shoes!!


I just ordered these online from JCrew!  Bonus they are currently an extra 30% off their sale price of $99, originally $215!  You can find them HERE!


Here are a few things I don't currently have, but I LOVE them!!


Gotta love super cute workout gear!!







Of course I had to check out my new favorite color combo on Pinterest for a little p-inspiration!











ooooo laaah la!  I think I NEED  a pink and navy room now!!



So have you all fallen for a new color combo lately?!?!  Have you fallen for the color combo of A {Blonde's} DIY Life?!?
