It has been one helluva week.¬†I worked a lot, tackled several chores, met up with friends, and battled the cold weather (it’s always a battle!).It’s been a week of long days and nights, that’s for darn sure! Today I’m sharing five things I learned this week:
1. The Tiny House Movement. I had only vaguely heard about this trend, but I had a lengthy conversation with a colleague about them, and then that obviously led to several Google searches. Check out this tiny house in North Vancouver.

Could you live in a tiny house?
2. In my¬†MBA world, I learned about linear regression. Scatter plots are not my favourite,¬†but I do like polka dots. Ha ha.¬†As if I would ever say that in class!
3. I got on a greek-yogurt-for-breakfast kick this week, and it totally worked for me. Big change from my usual toast and jam combo.

4. I realized (again) that my¬†Black and Decker Matrix with air inflator attachment is pretty darn convenient. I won this set a while ago via¬†Twitter, and it has definitely come in handy over the last few months.

5. I’ve been pinning bathroom photos like crazy. I would love to renovate¬†my small laundry/bathroom this spring,¬†and I’m gathering loads of inspiration photos. I love that this small bathroom even has room for art and an air plant:

Did you learn¬†anything new this week? I’d love to know!
Ah – the first full week of 2014 is coming to an end. How is everyone doing with their resolutions?
One of the things that I want to do this year is work on my art – making and collecting. I’m getting tired of some of my old pieces and I think it might be about time to paint over them or ditch them completely and buy some new pieces. So I’m ending the week with some art inspiration.

The Interior Design Show is in a couple of weeks and I am sure to find inspiration there as well. I have definitely enjoyed attending IDS in the past.
Ropes aren’t just for summer and boating, right? I am seeing them everywhere!

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
I know a lot of us are focused on our trees right now…but how ’bout them wreaths? Do you hang up a wreath (or several) for the holidays? I have one with white wool pompoms (easy DIY) on my front door…it stays up all winter long.
