June 2015 in Review

You know what’s weird? I feel like I get more DIY and decorating projects done when I don’t have a house of my own. Maybe because I’m not spending tons of time cleaning? If that’s the case, I need a full-time maid… and throw in a cook while you’re at it.

So June was an extremely busy month for me! If you’re new here or just haven’t caught up in awhile, sit back and relax… here’s the past month in review!

May 2015 in Review

Ah, another month in the books. The kiddo is out of school and it’s officially summer in our house! We’re still “homeless” at this very moment and our new place won’t be ready for another 3 months, but I still accomplished a ton of DIY projects at my brother’s house. So if you’re new here or just haven’t checked the blog in a bit, here’s my May in Review to catch you up on the latest and greatest!

Crazy to think that we never really got to use this space,
but I’m happy with the budget friendly makeover that helped sell our home!
