It’s been awhile since I did an Instagram Lately post! It’s fun now and then to share a few snippets of our life behind the scenes and random updates from our family’s Instagram feeds here on the blog!

But first, I want to send a big thank you and Happy Mother’s Day to my wonderful mom :). And another thank you to my kids, you make your mama so proud every single day!

This little coffee station is at my girls’ townhouse, isn’t it the cutest?

Last week my girls and I had these delicious smoothie bowls one morning during a breakfast meeting. Basically it’s a fruit and yogurt smoothie, but in a bowl topped with fruit and granola. So good, and good for you.

Last Sunday our whole clan (fur kids and humans) took an afternoon drive to Snoqualmie Falls. It’s only about 45 minutes from our house, so it’s a great spot to escape to if you are local.

The weather was absolutely beautiful here, so we couldn’t resist getting outside. It was nice just to spend time together enjoying the view.

If you ever watched the TV show Twin Peaks you might remember this stunning setting!

Weird show, beautiful view. :) The Salish Lodge sits up above the falls, it’s all so picturesque!

It was so refreshing to be able to outside after such a long winter inside. The dogs had a blast.

We had all four dogs with us and we overheard someone say we looked like a straight up a circus. I agree. Ha!

It’s quite a scene to walk four furry doodles.

I have to say, though, that I think Jack is really just a homebody at heart. Lily loves being outside, but I have to say Jack seems to be the happiest inside with his people.

Speaking of Jack, Friday was his sixth birthday!

Can you believe it? It seems like only yesterday we brought him home from the farm.

Life Lately on InstagramRollers / Oils

Lately my girls and I have had fun making essential oil rollers. We use them for everything. Our happy roller blend is my current favorite. I use it like perfume every day, it smells divine!

We don’t miss artificial scents or unnecessary chemicals in our home one bit! Please let me know if you’d like more details on the oils we use and how we use them.

This weekend I got into a real redesign frenzy. Before I knew it, I had come up with a new vision or idea for every single room in our house (except the kitchen, I’m not redoing that, ha!).

Pretty much no room will look quite the same as it does in this post, so stay tuned for the updates to this room and others in the upcoming weeks :).

Speaking of design updates, I always have such good intentions of updating the seasonal art on my chalkboards, too.

But alas, this one still has fall leaves on it. :)

I’m really excited to be able to focus on some smaller projects again now that the kitchen is complete. It is fun to always be working on the house, even in small ways. Our guest room is one of the rooms that will be getting a little spring refresh!

I love to come up with new ideas and enjoy how rooms can evolve over time.

We’ve been mulling over a possible small change or two in this room over the next couple of weeks, too. Design is kind of like playing dominos, one little change seems to lead to everything changing!

I haven’t forgotten to show you the new floors in my office! Hopefully this week I’ll have the post up.

Someday I’d love to have a little gardening shed like this in my backyard.

I don’t love going to shopping malls, but I absolutely love going to plant nurseries!

It’s a real wild rumpus when the pups get together every week.

Our Lily has the sweetest face and disposition, she is by far the most calm of our pups.

If you’re on Instagram, you can follow all of the pups @doodlesathome or on Facebook here.

This sight gave me quite a little fright out of the corner of my eye. :)

If you ever have the opportunity to come to Seattle, Kylee uses the hashtag #KyleeinSeattle on Instagram to showcase some of her favorite places to eat, drink coffee and hang out in this beautiful city we call home.

Hope you all have a great Sunday!

    Love, love, love your dogs!! Thx for sharing! Your home is so beautiful. Your book sits right next to my chair so any time I need some inspiration or just a lift in my day, I grab your book and relax with a cup of tea and your gorgeous photos. Everyone needs a copy of it!

  2. My daughter is going to college in Bellingham and we’ve been talking about taking a trip to see her and explore Seattle. Will have to check out your daughter’s instagram. :)

    Can’t wait to see how you redecorate. (Love the three turquoise-colored globes above your desk!)

    Happy Mother’s Day.

  3. So fun to see what you and your pups are up too. Love the snippets of life. I love the Salish Lodge and spa! One of my favorite places to visit! Beautiful photos of the falls.

    Thanks for sharing. Happy Mothers day!

    Looking at the old video and post of you bringing Jack home brought tears to my eyes! He is so adorable, young or old. And he loves his mom so hope you are having a Happy Mother’s Day!

  5. Mother’s Day blessings to you!

  6. I just started using Young Living oils through my daughter in law. Would you please share with me your Happy recipe. The one you use as a perfume? I am excited about the oils and look forward to learning how to use. I also just started following your Instagram page on the oils. Thank you Melissa. I have followed your blog for many years and you are so inspiring!

    Looking forward to your updates! One question…have you done a post about your office yet? You mentioned here about showing the new floor, but I can recall seeing the finished office at all. Would love a tour of that! Thanks!
