"Let's Getaway" Our tropical themed guestroom...


The only rooms that got any attention after we moved in were the girls room. Obviously because those are the most fun! However now with the dining room ORC challenge over I started focusing on our guestroom upstairs.  (And to be honest because we have lots of family and friends comming to visit this summer)  

I knew I wanted navy and white bedding in this room.  I can't even tell you why.  All I know is even before we bought this house I always wanted a navy and white striped bed in a guestroom.  That's totally normal right?  Dreaming of decorating a guestroom you don't actually have?   Okay good..thought so! :)

Let me tell you finding navy and white striped bedding is easy.  Finding quality navy and white striped bedding with great reviews...that was a challenge.  Challenge accepted.

Below I've linked what I have bought for the room thus far.  I'm keeping it simple so there is more space (and easier to clean) and to just give the room a more spacious feel.  And for the record...yes, that is a giant wooden fish above the bed.  (It is a handmade piece I found on Etsy a few years ago for my husband)

Neutrals by BEHR Paint

I've been working on a project for the past two weeks and what always seems to be the most challenging part is choosing paint colors.  I have been wanting to find a nice neutral that isn't too "Gray" and isn't too "Beige" but not too white either. I personally like the look of white walls in pictures but in reality I'm not a huge fan.  Also, I like to see a contrast between painted walls and white trim.  Each time I look over on Pinterest for inspiration I find lots of suggestions for other paint brands..but I'm a BEHR girl :)  We spend so much time at Home Depot it just makes more sense for us.  That being said I decided to share with all of you my suggestions for finding the perfect "light Greige" by BEHR Paints!  


To start off with here are three options that are lighter/cooler but will still show a nice contrast next to white.

1. Drizzle


2. Sterling

3. Halation

These three options are also a "light greige" but a tad smidge more …

My first attempt at "Meal Planning".....

Okay friends ...well the vote was basically unanimous..97% of you voted "YES" to an easy low carb based meal prepping plan for the week.  So here we are! I say "low carb based" because there are a few carbs as well as some berries.  However the intake is still very low and definitely in an approved amount for any low carb diet.  
A few things to mention... I did not have the containers and like I mentioned in my stories Monday morning I did not have time to head to Target, Walmart or wait for Amazon delivery so I purchased mine at Publix the same day I shopped.  They were very inexpensive anyways so it worked out fine.  I got two sizes of containers (entree and soup/salad) and I also ended up using some of my existing tupperware. 
The four entrees that I made for the week (I can rotate them for lunches and dinners) do not contain any chicken.  This is because I personally don't like the taste of reheated chicken.  If you do then definitely substitute out some of t…
