She Loves Me, She Loves Me Not: First Time Fancy

Wednesday means more fun playing She Loves Me, She Loves Me Not! Today I have my ever-so-sweet friend, Kerry, here from First Time Fancy
Kerry and I were quick at connecting, as we both started our blogs around relatively the same time.  We are both in interior design school {although she's taking a break now to be a mama to the cutest little peanut!} Kerry is always encouraging and has knocked it out of the park with many projects in her favorite being Halle's nursery. Let's see what she's been fancying lately (:

Hi everyone! Kerry here from First Time Fancy. I'm so excited that Michaela asked me to take part in her "She Loves Me, She Loves Me Not" series. I always love seeing what other bloggers come up with, and I had a lot of fun compiling my very own little list!

She Loves Me:

1. I'm going to start with the obvious here (for anyone that reads my blog). I love my newly expanded family, and being a Mom to our gorgeous baby girl. Life as a Mom is not glamourous or always easy... but boy do her gummy smiles make every second worth it!

2. The Fall! It's my favourite season, even though it always feels way too short! What's better than cozy sweaters, Thanksgiving, pumpkin pie, the changing leaves, football and hot apple cider? 


3. The One of a Kind Show. It only happens twice a year here in Toronto, but it's such a great opportunity to go out and meet some talented people and buy some unique pieces. My favourite show is definitely the Christmas Show in November! Such a great place to kick off Christmas shopping!


4. Road trips! B and I always love road trips, and we're kind of making it a tradition once a year at least! There are so many great cities to explore in Canada and the US, and we want to see them all!! Our last two trips took us to Pittsburgh (2010) and Cleveland (2011). Who knows where our next trip will take us!

5. Books as decor! Not only are books a great way to kick back, relax and escape, but they just look so fantastic as part of decor. Whether they are stacked on a coffee table, in a library or on a perfectly styled bookcase - I love them all!

She Loves Me Not:

1. The winter... which is inevitably, right.around.the.corner. Cold, snow, grey days... and more cold and snow. I was clearly born in the wrong part of the world!!

2. The price of gas! You Americans think you have it bad? My American other half will tell you any day that he'd prefer to pay the American prices at the pump. Driving is getting so expensive... which most definitely effects where we take our road trips!

3. Negativity! Does much need to be said about this? Enjoy life, we only have one to live... and be nice to people. So many people waste too much time being negative, mean and hateful... and it's so not necessary...

Thanks Kerry! Told you she was great (: I'm loving walls of books as decor.  Amazing! And so not looking forward to those cold, gray days...ah!

Hurry on over to First Time Fancy for more design thoughts, pictures of their little girl and lots of home improvement & inspiration photos.

Happy Wednesday, friends!
