August 2015 in Review

OK, I know I promised you guys a tour of the new digs, but I still need to find the cord to get my photos off the camera. Oh, the joys of moving. So instead you guys are getting my Month in Review (which is still pretty good in my opinion because it was a pretty productive month!).

I had to squeeze in one last project for my roomie before the big move!


So September should be interesting. Brand new home… basically a blank slate with empty rooms and white walls. Although I promised to finish up two bathrooms at my brother’s house plus the nursery at my sister’s house. Ooh, plus my other nephew’s bedroom. And my mom’s laundry room…

Looks like September is already shaping up to be a busy month.

July 2015 in Review

What a rollercoaster of a month for me and my family. We started out the month on a super high with Ben and my 10 year wedding anniversary plus the positive result for our very first IVF. Then just a couple short weeks later we find out that I miscarried. Yeah, it’s been a very rough month for my family, but luckily I have this blog to keep my mind off things and to keep me busy. I don’t think I could have survived this past month without this website. Sad but true.

So here’s the projects that kept me busy throughout July…

Thanks to everyone for another super supportive month.
Like I said, it’s been a roller coaster but I appreciate your thoughts and prayers.

And can you believe next month we move into our new home?
Can’t wait to see what August brings!
