our week

happy february! february is exciting, right? okay, maybe we just had a really nice week here and are now riding on our anticipation of the approaching weekend! even after a great week, sometimes we just get a little more enthusiastic on friday. this week solidified some new, big jobs that we are very excited about! we also packed the week full of site visits for many of our projects that are currently under construction. there is something about a site under construction that always seems to be colder than it even is outside. so of course, on this chilly week we spent plenty of time outside and in even colder shells of homes! we aren’t complaining (too much) because the progress is wonderful and dramatic! we have to admit, we were pretty excited for the cool weather. what a perfect excuse to cook our favorite comfort foods and lay low for a bit. and someone has also used it as an excuse to snuggle her pup and binge watch breaking bad, finally. she complained for days about being exhausted before admitting why! busted. unfortunately, we have all been guilty of this at one time or another!
while laying low after work this week, we came across some great links and items to share with you! we will also continue sharing some valentine’s day gift ideas we come across, so be sure to follow us on twitter and facebook for some unique finds for the loved ones in your life!

have a wonderful weekend! -dh

our first sneak peek of kp’s new home! gosh it is beautiful, we cannot wait to share more!


someone has a new fireplace that is just missing one of these on the mantel. it would also be a great accessory for a coffee table, or really wherever!

the kpi ladies are pretty excited for valentine’s day this year. did you see our gift guide yet? also, the rummage gift guide has some serious goodies this year!

we still have mixed feelings about this human font. it is partially hilarious, but just so bizarre!

this cool down in los angeles has us craving warm, hearty, comfort foods like chili! the best part? this recipe is vegan!

we will definitely miss philip seymour hoffman, but were very warmed by these featured quotes by him. we can all relate.
