We’re so excited it’s the weekend!  It’s been a productive week for us.  We’ve been trying to go hard on the decorating over here as we are hosting some family this weekend and thought they should be welcomed by a home that isn’t bare and sad.  There’s nothing like family coming to town to get you a little motivated to get things done around the house.  We’re happy we got that kick in the butt! On Monday we’ll be heading up to Sedona to escape these Phoenix temps a bit and try to get some relaxing time by the pool and sightsee.  It’s been a while since we’ve been up north, so we are really excited about it.  Next week (6/28), we will be co-hosting a very special store opening in Phoenix of one of our favorite brands ever…West Elm.  We’ve gotten used to taking the drive up to North Scottsdale to shop there, but we are thrilled to be getting a store waaaaay closer to us here in Phoenix.  We will be sharing the details next week, so keep your eyes peeled for that.  We hope to see some of you there!  As always, we are sharing our favorite links from around the web this week.  We hope you guys enjoy them and have a great weekend!

June Book Round-Up with Audible

We travel a lot, but we haven’t taken a “lounge on the beach with a good book and drink in hand” kind of trip in a longggg time! Earlier this week while we were in Austin, we met up with some friends and started talking about this. We all crave adventure, to see new cities, and experience new things, but there’s something to be said about indulging in the type of trip where you do almost nothing and it is basically everything. Haha! Our honeymoon was a similar type of trip. We actually weren’t even planning on a big getaway, but family insisted that we would want/”need” a honeymoon after the crazy wedding planning. Well, they were right and we were so happy we did. We’re not huge beach people and very ironically we went to Cancun. It is still one of our favorite trips to date. We sat on the beach almost every morning… READ MORE

Our Beach Favorites 2017

via

It feels funny to do a “beach favorites” post when there isn’t a beach within 200 miles of us, but hey, we have pools. Ha! This weekend we have some family coming to town and because it’s a bit too hot to sightsee, we’ll probably be hanging around the pool as much as we can.  We’ve rounded up some of our favorite beach essentials from around the web.  Hope you guys are enjoying these (official) first days of summer.  Where are some of your favorite beaches around the country?  We’d love to add one to our list of “places to visit” this summer.

What a week it’s been over here!  We spent the first half of the week in L.A. for some workshops and work meetings, one day in Phoenix, and this weekend we’ll be in Austin, TX for a fun Canon event at Precision Camera.  We love these small trips after doing so many big ones lately.  It’s nice to get thrown into a new city, explore a bit, meet up with some friends, and then get back home.  It’s also great to be able to travel with just a carry-on too!  Tonight we’ll be in Austin meeting up with our good pals, Olivia and Blake.  We’re so excited!  Hope everyone has a great weekend and a happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there.  Below are some links from around the web we’ve been liking.  Enjoy!

Happy Friday! We hope everyone had a good week.  It’s been pretty scorching hot over here in Phoenix and we’ve been doing our best to stay cool in the 100+ degree heat.  We’ve been spending lots of time in our yard regardless, and potting some plants on our patio that we’re so excited to share with you guys in the coming weeks.  This weekend we’ll be shooting a few projects, and getting our house in order before a couple small trips next week to L.A. and Austin.  We’ll be hosting an event in Austin with Canon at Precision Camera & Video on 6/17! It will be a fun afternoon of photo taking, adventuring, and a ton of great prizes. Click here for more details and to register for the event. 🙂

And now, in true Friday fashion here are a few of our favorite links from around the web.  Enjoy!

New Darlings Pretty Florals Sundresses

It’s been, what feels like forever, since our last full normal week.  This one was actually a pretty good one.  We are fully back in routine-mode and not complaining about that.  We kicked off the week with a brunch date with our pal, Sarah (@arrowandapple) and discussed the major plot holes of Bad Moms (Ha!), our short work week was met with lots of editing (thanks 2-week cruise!) and tonight we’re headed out for some tasty Chinese food with the Tremaine Ranch gang.  As you may have seen this week on the blog, we rolled out our master bathroom photos.  We’re so excited to see this home of ours coming together.  We still have some major designing to do in the living room, office, dining room, and guest house (demo starting soon!), but we’re really happy with the way things are going over here.  This weekend, we are looking forward to early morning breakfasts in the yard with the pup, hopefully catching dinner and a movie, and binging House of Cards.  We hope everyone has a great weekend!  Here’s a few links to browse while you enjoy the first weekend of June.

Scandinavian Cruise Pt. I


A few weeks ago we embarked on a two week cruise on the Regal Princess through Scandinavia, which began in Copenhagen. We were super excited to be reunited with some of our favorite blogger pals and explore new parts of the world we didn’t have the opportunity to visit before. We’ve said it in the past, but cruising really is the best way to see so many different places so quickly. It’s like a crash course in each country and although we sometimes (okay, most of the time) felt like we didn’t get to see enough of each place at every port, it really gave us an idea of what cities we wanted to go back to and plan a longer stay.

Playlist No. 03

Lifestyle Photography Music FavoritesMadewell shirt | UO jeans (similar)

We realize it’s been quite a while since we shared our last playlist with you guys.  We like to share the actual songs we are currently listening to while we work here at home, but since we’ve been pretty much moving, unpacking, renovating, and traveling for much of the past year we haven’t had that steady work flow.  Now that we are finally set up again at home, it’s been so nice to have these playlists going.  We’re happy to share Playlist No. 03 for you to enjoy.  Let us know what you guys think!

So we’ve been back in Phoenix for almost a week now after what feels like almost two straight months of travel.  As much as we had an incredible time on our trips, it’s definitely nice to settle back in to our routine at home.  We’ve been working on some fun projects over here and are excited to start sharing them over the next couple months.  Expect some more room reveals, a new blog design, and probably a bit more travel 😉 We hope everyone has a great, long weekend filled with sunshine, family, and relaxation.  Here are some links from around the web we’ve been enjoying this week.  Cheers!

Life Lately

After a vigorous month of travel and several different countries, we are finally home and slowly get back to our routine. When we were younger and dating, we would always talk about all the cities we wanted to visit, what we were going to do when we got married, and what kind of lives we would lead. Never in our wildest dreams did we think we would be able to travel as much as we do, and as fun and eye-opening it is to experience new places and cultures, there’s something really comforting about having a home base to return to and kind of melt back into your comfort zone. Nine times out of ten, when we travel, it’s for work and/or a brand partnership, so our days are usually pretty packed. For a while the plane rides, various time zones, and dinners with new friends felt normal to us, but after a few days of being home we are already wondering what we did without all these puppy cuddles, home cooked meals, and down time.
