Farmhouse Decor Gift Certificate Winner & Talk of the Town #128

This week is even a crazier weak than normal.  Our church is having VBS this week and I’m helping to serve dinner in the kitchen, so I drop my son off at work early in the morning, drive back home to get some work done, then go back and pick him up before we both head to the church.  It’s fun, but a little hectic!  Let’s get to the party and at the end of the post, I’ll announce the {Read More}

Choosing the Right Farmhouse Bathroom Vanity

Choosing the Right Farmhouse Bathroom Vanity We took about a month off from working on our bathroom remodel to focus our attention on outdoor projects, mainly the secret garden patio area.  That’s all finished, so we turned our attention back to the bathroom and we’re almost done.  Just a little bit of painting and primping remains.  I use the term “we,” even though I mean my husband.  He really is the one who’s done almost all of the work.  I {Read More}

Talk of the Town #127

I don’t know about you, but I wish the “lazy days of summer” were just a bit more lazy.  I hit the floor running from the time I get up until the time I go to bed and just wish I could do nothing for awhile.   Do you feel that way or is your summer more relaxing?

Going for a Walk Ramblings

First of all, I want to thank all you who follow me on Facebook for leaving nice comments during my first Facebook live.  I screwed up several times (and mispronounced Couture!)  It was definitely a learning experience, but I talked myself into it and wanted to be more brave.  I don’t know if I’ll do them often, but I felt good once it was done.
