White Paint Everywhere

Oops, I did it again! I got the white paint bug and dove right in on Sunday afternoon. Our 2nd bedroom on the main floor, our laundry room, and our master closet are the only spots left in this house with brown wood. On Sunday I tackled the closet in the 2nd bedroom. I am not sure I am ready to tackle the rest of the rooms trim with all the junk and furniture in there, but slowly but surely I am getting things organized. More about that on Friday!


I really love these progression shots. Honestly, they make me feel so productive! It’s fun to see how much the room changes. Now, if I could just finish the doors and get all the junk sorted through and stored I would feel even better. And then maybe if the furniture wasn’t covered with stuff I would feel motivated to move it away from the walls and actually paint the trim… I have high hopes for white trim office in 2015.

Do you love the white trim as much as we do? I feel like it’s the biggest change we’ve made to our home!
Happy Day!

Love, The Jaderstons



Over the Weekend

Over the weekend we…

Celebrated the life and birth of my sister in law (and her new baby niece)
Played a new board game that Mike got for his birthday
Watched basketball with family
Enjoyed a yummy french toast surprise
Saw old/new friends from Atlanta
Relaxed on the couch and watched Friends
Painted more things white (more on this later)


This photo is from the night Mike and I got engaged – before we knew that this girl would also become a Jaderston.


So we did a lot of celebrating and a lot of relaxing

Maybe the theme for our year should just switch back to celebrate? Adventure isn’t happening quite yet.

How was your weekend?
Happy Day!

Love, The Jaderstons



Five on Friday

Good Morning! Today I am linked up with AprilDarciChristina, and Natasha for Five on Friday!


1. Happy Birthday, Mike!

Last Saturday was Mike’s birthday! We unwrapped gifts, had a great meal at the Cracker Barrel, and enjoyed some SC basketball! Mike’s favorite food is french toast and his favorite team is Sterling, so it was a good day. Sterling even gave us a win in OT.

I am so grateful for Mike’s life and that I’ve been apart of it for almost five years. Another birthday, another year! It was so much fun spoiling him this year.


2. The Passion Planner and a new camera bag!

Last week I got the most fun mail! Over Christmas I won this great new camera bag from Copper River Bag Co. and my new planner arrived! I went a different route this year with my planner. I usually get an Erin Condren one, but there are so many options out there that I decided to try something new. Passion Planner is a kick starter company that makes planners that essentially help you keep track of your passions and your goals. So far I am enjoying it!

Anybody else really love relaxing and filling in a new planner?


3. Our week with Katie

We’ve had Katie (my littlest sis) all this week since my parents are out of town. We’ve had some really fun days and also some really sick days, but I wouldn’t trade this time I get with her when my parents are gone. I think she had fun – even through the sickness.


4. Weekend at Camp

Two weekends ago we spent a few days out at Westminster Woods – the place where we met. It was a fun weekend with friends and the pups always have a blast. Alfie didn’t love the ride out, his ears were tucked the whole time. But once we arrived and he got to hang out with Boo his day got a lot better.


5. Our Corner Updates

Did you see our house updates this week? DIY 3D letters and DIY Recycled sign + some easy decor!

Happy Friday!

Love, The Jaderstons
