Pretty Ordinary gives you a sneak peek into Lily & Val behind the scenes! On Lily & Val Living!

For this month’s Pretty Ordinary Friday #105, we’re documenting snapshots of our month. While our pictures may not be the prettiest or the most interesting, we enjoyed each instance and want to remember them! These are the behind-the-scenes, in-between moments – the small peeks that would otherwise be forgotten. Join us as we use this series to scrapbook the unedited, memorable happenings at Lily & Val and what is inspiring our team!

The team says:

1. “Had to snap a pic of this adorable plate at the Commoner Restaurant! Inspiration is everywhere!” – Valerie, Founder and Creative Director

2. “On a whim, Mak and I decided to drive and hour and 45 minutes to our favorite spot- Bedford Springs just for breakfast! The gluten free French toast was worth it! Snapped this pic, turned around and headed home!” – Valerie

3“We love it at the Omni Bedford Springs so much! Grateful for the time with Mak before our little one arrives.” – Valerie 

4“Had a major antiquing and thrifting win with these adorable pink lamps for baby girl’s room! First I found the bases, but had a hard time finding the right size shade. Then, I happen to find these at Goodwill for $1! They are perfect. Love when things like that happen.” – Valerie

5. “Working on the dessert chalkboard for my baby shower! I haven’t done signage like this in a long time, so it was really fun to draw!” – Valerie

6. “The largest blueberries I’ve ever seen! I’ve been on quite the oatmeal + honey + blueberry kick lately!” – Valerie

7. “The prettiest pastel shades all together from our Baby Collection!– Valerie

8. “Lots and lots of flower arranging for my baby shower…lots!” – Emily, Creative Coordinator

9. “Spring is just so beautiful!” – Emily

10. “If you have never visited Falling Water…do yourself a favor. Trust me you will go back over and over!” – Emily

11. “More baby shower prep. My dad made this stork from the one I drew for my invitation! We make a good team.” – Emily

12. “BTS our nursery shoot…and last one before babies arrive.”- Emily

13. “Bebe and I always get pics in the car…mostly because I’m bad at keeping up with my journal and use photo dates to remember.”- Emily

14. “Got some cool vintage pieces for the nursery!” – Emily

15. “One of the best things about Pittsburgh? The Gobbleritos from Mad Mex! Think Thanksgiving Dinner in a burrito. They are usually only available around Thanksgiving, but they had them for one day only this April. This is only 1/4 of the entire thing! Such a gluttonous meal, but soooooo delicious!” – Nicole, Operations Manager

16. “For Mother’s Day, I surprised my mom with a mini-makeover. But since it was also my 37th birthday, I had my hair done as well and went a little bold with the color. Loving my purple!” – Nicole

17. “The ladies & baby bumps of L&V!” – Valerie
