Curtains, Curtains, Curtains!

Curtains |

We finally after 2 years have replaced the curtains in our main living area! It feels like a grown up room now. When we moved in there were these big heavy yellow curtains that didn’t close all the way. We decided they needed to go so we took them down about a year ago and have been waiting for the right curtains to come along ever since.

We finally decided that we were just going to do it and when we went to the store we found these gorgeous light blue curtains that had great texture and I was in LOVE! So now we have the ability to block out the sun in the afternoons while we are watching movies and to give us some privacy from the neighbors when the trees have no leaves.

We took all the old hardware from the previous curtains and are going to repair the wall when we decide what color to paint the room. So many decisions and so little time to get it all done, but one step at a time is where we are right now!

My Experience with Green Bean Delivery

GreenBean Delivery |

I love having fresh fruits and veggies around. So about a year ago I started subscribing to this organic food delivery service. It is called Green BEAN Delivery, and they serve several metro areas around the midwest. If you would like to try it out for yourself Happy Apple readers have a special promo code which they can use to get $15 off your first order. Use the promo code bc1happ when setting up your first order or reactivating your account. This promo code is good for 3 months from today, so get over there and place your first order!

One of my favorite things about the service is that it in one respect forces me to get the fresh produce in my house. Sometimes when you go to the store and you have your weekly budget, at least in my experience, the extra fruits and veggies get overlooked. This way I get a nice selection and I also try to pick something I’ve never had before, like that big bunch of kale you see in the pictures.

The produce I get is always fresh and I feel like I get my money out of the bin too. Everything you see in these pictures came in one delivery. Not only is everything organic it is also sourced as locally as possible which makes me feel good. If you are looking for a better selection of organic local produce than your grocery store has you should definitely check out a delivery service like this. I rely heavily on this in the winter time when the farmer’s market isn’t as active and then usually use the farmers market to supplement what I get in the bins through the summer. I have been thrilled with every bin and the customer service is excellent too!

What I Wore : Maxi Skirt

What I Wore : Maxi Skirt |

Las weekend Gunnar took me into the city for a quick date. We went to Abby Girl Sweets Cupcakery. It was delicious and a wonderful way to spend a Saturday morning. I wore my favorite summer outfit. This fun peach shirt and a maxi skirt. Maxi skirts are amazing, they are comfortable and cute.

Project Life : Week 15 |

Also, we worked on the house some more during the week and we finally put curtains up in our livingroom. Gunnar built that really unstable looking platform since we couldn’t move the couch. I’m glad I’ve gotten a picture of it to remember. Even though it was wobbly it got the job done. And the room looks gorgeous now, I will be sharing pictures of that soon as well!

Project Life : Week 15 |


Have a great weekend!!
