Sunday Saves: Girls Weekend

Updated: Oct 15, 2019

Week of October 7, 2019


Happy Sunday! This weekend I spent my days up North in Spicer MN with some girlfriends. We have all become friends because our husbands were in the same fraternity at the University of Minnesota. I love nothing more than spending my weekends up North in the Fall. On Saturday, we did wake up to snow on the ground... but I guess that is part of Fall in Minnesota. Jesse always jokes about getting a cabin, but I'm all in!


Spicer MN

As I mentioned I was out of town this past weekend, I am sharing where we stayed... a Jkath remodel! Our client was Jesse's fraternity husband and his wife. It is so much fun dreaming up a project on paper, creating it in real life and now seeing it so well loved and lived-in. I want them to be able to keep that privacy and lived-in feeling for themselves, so here are some pictures from our reveal a couple of years ago. This is the first time we have done a girls weekend up North at this cabin and I loved it. We usually try to get together every other month or so. It's challenging when everyone has kids, but we find time!




Where should I convince Jesse to get a lake house? Minnesota or Wisconsin? Ideally less than three hours away!


We watched the TC Marathon last Sunday

Every year we watch the runners go by Lake Nokomis. We are usually around mile 13; just about half way for those brave runners. Our girls are in cross country so it's always inspiring for them to watch runners of all ages participate. I thought it would be fun to pull out some old pictures of me running the marathon in 2013.



#GambrelCreek project update

We received all our accessories this week for an upcoming big install at our #GambrelCreek Project. This week consisted of unpacking everything to make sure there were no damages and packing it all back up and labeling for transport.


This past week we had all of the painting finished up and tile install. Next week: lighting, mirrors + accessories. I can't wait to see all of these selections installed. Not to mention a clean office too! This is real time what our office looks like at the moment...



Country Club mood boards post

Were talking all sorts of mood boards next week for powder bathroom inspiration. Our client wants fun wallpaper so were putting together 3 mood boards for them to look at and tell us which direction they want to explore. I love having a center focus for a mood board and creating a whole room. Check back this week to see what we came up with. Here's a sneak peek of the wall paper we are looking at.



BizCom Summit 2019

We talked about how excited we were about BizCom last week and this week we went! It was a crazy fun event full of networking, learning and sharing creative ideas. Check out Construction2Style to see all the content from the summit. Thanks for hosting Moran and Jamie + Mercury Mosaics! Here is a quick iPhone snapshot of the panel with Kelly Keagans MSP Mag, Jason DeRusha WCCO, Jill Projects in Person, and Elizabeth Ries Twin Cities Live. It was a killer panel moderated by my friend Aaron Komo and it was so interesting to hear everyone's different stories about life and social media.
