I’m in a flurry trying to get back on track over here. That late summer vacation has left me scrambling a bit. And to kick off the fall, we went to Notre Dame’s first football game, leaving at the crack of dawn and getting home at midnight = one tired family the next day.
So until I get my act together, I thought I’d do a flashback of some of the highlights of this past summer.
First, we kicked off the summer with a golf themed birthday party for my 12 year old.
And did a little summer front porch makeover.
I ended up doing succulents in my window box and loved them because they survived even though I completely neglected them.
Had fun helping my neighbor decorate for her daughter’s graduation party.
Got through removing carpet, staples and tack strips to finally paint gray and white stripes on half of the playroom subfloor. Keyword – half. That means still half to go. Yep.
Took a step out of the safe zone and painted my hallway floors teal. Love.
I learned a new travel tip from my sis-in-law – the hotel bag.
Shared our upcycled gum container turned cord corral.
And also shared how I keep my kids from running around in half tops and floods by adding a donation bin to the laundry room.
As I said above, only half the playroom floor is done and I still have to take on the stairs.
So I declare September as Finish What I Started Month.
Wish me luck!
