Before I get started with today's post, I'd like to direct your attention over to my sidebar. Are you looking? Great! You may or may not have noticed that I've created a reader survey and I'd love for you to take it. It's not very long I promise!

And now on to today's post!

Guys...this is not a how to. I hired someone to do my cleaning this year...I just didn't have time to clean the way I wanted to. I usually only hire a cleaning service to do my move-out clean. But it occurred to me last week that something had to give. Either I keep running myself ragged, or I just go ahead and get some help. I'm still going to need to take care of certain things like spring cleaning my closet, my "office" and the patio, so there are still some things to keep me busy. 

I am really wanting to give the place a new look as well, but with grad school, wedding expenses, and also the fact that we will be moving, I kind of feel like what's the point? So I've decided against it (*as I type I'm thinking well maybe I'll just get some new bedding...*). 
A girl can window shop though right? Truth moment: I hate window shopping!! I only go shopping when I'm planning on making a purchase. But I can window shop online-strange I know! Maybe because I'm looking for inspiration versus things I would like to buy.

How awesome is this bathroom? I've always wanted a bathtub like this and I love that natural light is flowing into the room.

I love modern and eclectic spaces with bright bold colors:

I like this dining room and the windows letting in loads of natural light and views of the lush greenery!

Now back to reality, enough daydreaming for the day! But you can bet I've made some mental notes for after the move! Are you making some changes to your space this spring? Please share so I can live vicariously through you!
