Random Weekend

It is that random weekend time again.
Musings and thoughts from the week that was... 
and a look ahead to what is coming up.

This week has been a busy fun one-
 that involved travel to one of my favorite cities with one of my favorite brands,
inspiration from France
and a whole lot of randomness.

Blogger Day 

Last week was all about HomeGoods and New York City. 
I am mildly obsessed with both HomeGoods and New York- 
 so you can imagine what a great trip it was.
HomeGoods invited the Design Happy Bloggers as well as some of their other social network influencers for an influencer event in the big apple.
I have been working with HomeGoods for almost 5 years now- and it was so good to see my HG family- and to meet several new faces at dinner the first night.

The next day was blogger day- and was filled with soaking up knowledge. 
We had speakers from Pinterest and Instagram come to give us a bit of the insider look at how things work- and it was an incredible day full of inspiration.


Say the word New York City and I am all about soaking in as much as I can. 
I extended my stay by a couple of days and enjoyed running around visiting some favorite spots- as well as going to a couple of meetings about some exciting work stuff coming up.

I will delve more into blogger day and NYC in a separate post- 
because I took about 100 photos as usual. 
But here are just a few of what inspired me as I wandered.

Laundry Room Refresh

Thank you so much for all your love on our laundry room refresh.
 I cannot believe how simple (and inexpensive) 
it was to completely re-do this closet and make it look pretty. 

Coming your way next week- 
a break down of each change we made, where to find what we used and tips on how to do it.
As you probably know -
 our laundry room is up against some competition to win a contest over at Angie's List-
 and you can vote for it once a day if you are so inclined.

 La Vida Loca in Las Vegas

I am off to Las Vegas Market next week- and am excited to be exploring and blogging about some of my favorite companies and trends.
 If anyone is going to be there- I would love to connect and say hello!
