Mailing Happiness

Not only did my Mom and Dad help like caaaarazyyyyy while they were visiting us in December, they also found a way to help us out while they are 13 hours away, in a completely different state.

Let me back track for a second.  Whenever I am out and about, I always keep an eye out for anything in the aqua/turquoise/teal family…especially if it’s something for the kitchen.  I knew our kitchen would be mostly white, with stainless steel appliances, so I wanted to bring in pops of color with all kinds of accessories.

Well, clearly my Mom was on a mad search for all things aqua as well, and she struck gold!  {Or should I say…turquoise haaaa!}

Last week, the hubby and I arrived home from work to see a couple boxes from UPS hanging out in front of our garage.  I brought them inside and eagerly unpacked them to find an abundance of sea blues and greens.

Now, thanks to my wonderful Mom {and Dad}, I have all sorts of accents in my kitchen that help tie everything together!

And that definitely includes the super cute curtain my Mom made for me that you saw in Monday’s post.  We both fell in love with that fabric the minute we saw it.

Seriously, parents are the best!


  1. I love all of the accents and you're right - parents are the best!!! I notice that even your dishsoap matches. Did you do that on purpose?

  2. Aww! Your parents are so sweet! I love all of those bright kitchen accessories! How fun!

  3. Parents ARE the best! What a pretty little curtain. Even your Dawn matches ;)

  4. Thanks Diana! They really are! I know hahaha, I was kind of excited when I found it at the grocery store. I'm a dork like that! :)

    Thanks so much, Ashley!! They help to pull it all together since we went so neutral everywhere else. It gives us the ability to switch up our scheme whenever we want!

    Thank you, Kelly!! I know...I love coordinating everything haha.

  5. Gorgeous! Parents are the best!! I love that utensil crock :)
