{Link Up} Being Fearless, Current Obsessions, and Home Updates

Happy Friday, girls. This week was a fast one and you'll find no complaints about that from this girl. Fast weeks are my favorite; though a part of me realizes that that just means my baby girl is getting that much older :/ Cue the tears. But on to happier things like this Five on Friday post. So lets get right to it...

1)  Be Fearless
A couple of weeks ago, I ordered this tag necklace from Initial Outfitters. It was one of those items that when I saw it, I knew I had to have it. So often, I allow fear to creep into my mind and heart and it stops me from doing the things I know I should do or the things I want to do. I find it no coincidence that "do not be afraid" is written in the Bible a total of 365 times. It is God's daily reminder to us that He's there; that He's got this; and that we should be fearless. I pray that this little gem will remind me daily to trust in Him and not allow my fear to cripple me.

2) Pretty Blooms
Last Saturday I purchased two bouquets of fresh yellow tulips for our kitchen. Throughout the week, they've been opening up and I just can't help but stare at how beautiful they are.  With all the rain and cloudy skies we've had this week, the pops of yellow have been brightening up our kitchen as well as our moods. I'm pretty sure I'll be grabbing a few bouquets of these each week until summer arrives and things are much more colorful and cheerful.

3) Current Obsession + Must Have
If you follow many home blogs or visit many home decor stores/departments, you'll see that galvanized metal is a fast growing trend. It's everywhere and slowly but surely, I'm becoming obsessed with it. So far I've limited myself to only purchasing one galvanized metal piece which so happens to be this adorable mail holder. However, I've got my eye on these large metal letters from Hobby Lobby as well as these galvanized metal serving pieces from Walmart. At less than $10 a piece, I can't promise they won't make their way into my buggy this weekend.

4) House Project Updates
It's been a while since I've filled you all in on the current house projects we've got going on. At the beginning of the year, I shared my plans with you all of how we were redecorating our master bedroom and living room. Currently, our master bedroom is about 80% complete. We've made the headboard, got new bedding, painted the space, started our gallery wall, and found the perfect chair. However, I'm still on the hunt for the perfect floor length mirror and we still need a few more pieces of wall art. Hopefully by the end of April I'll have a full reveal to share. As for our living room, we haven't done much to that space yet. We've hung new curtains, purchased a new lamp, and ordered fabric for the pillow covers I'll be {attempting} to make but that's as far as it's gone. We still need to have our carpet cleaned, decide what to do with our current bookshelf, and purchase a few new decorative items for our space. 

5) Weekend Plans
It appears this is going to be another fun filled weekend in the Holt household. On our agenda for the weekend are pedicures, an Easter egg hunt, a movie night at our house with some of our favorite people, more home shopping adventures, and packing for our upcoming trip to Charleston. Check back next Monday/Tuesday for a full weekend recap (:

Have a great weekend my friends!


  1. I am dying over the Walmart finds right now. Might need to make a trip to Walmart myself! So cute:) And can't wait to see more updates on the house. It's been so fun following along! Happy Friday, sweet friend!

  2. I just went to Hobby Lobby last week and bought those galvanized letters to spell out EAT for my boyfriends kitchen and our renovation projects. I love them :)


Hearing from you ladies always make my day, so please let me know you stopped by!
