Girls Weekend...

My best friend, Kelly, and I have been planning a Girl's Weekend for......ever!

At least, it felt like forever.

(It's been 8 years in the making!)

But the first weekend of September, we had luck on our side. With only four days notice, the stars and planets aligned and we miraculously got the chance to leave our kiddos at home with our husbands and take off for some much needed rest and relaxation.

And shopping.


We spent that Friday morning doing our everyday Mom duties, but the moment the kids were safe and sound at school, we hit the road.

Destination: Pacific Beach, WA

More specifically, The Coastal Nest.

We had a great time!

I could go into all of the details of the cottage, but really, the photos speak for themselves.

First, a quick rundown of the spaces:

The Living Room:

The Kitchen:

The Dining Area:

Bedroom #1:

Bedroom #2:

And The Bathroom:

The Coastal Nest is certainly quaint and cozy!

But what makes this cottage so adorable and comfortable, is Lisa's obvious eye for details and decor.

Take a look to see just what I mean...

(Click on the photo to be taken to the Coastal Nest Facebook Page, and let Lisa know that Karla from ITLT sent you!)

The moment that Kelly and I walked in, I knew I would be stealing some of Lisa's ideas and using them in my own home.

The cottage is brimming with inspiration!

Many thanks to Lisa for letting us stay at the Coastal Nest on such short notice!

You have a sweet little spot there!
