July Acronym

I know I say this every month, but where has the time gone?  I can’t believe it’s already August.  We’ve got something fun to look forward to and I can’t wait to spill the beans.  Other than that, we’ve got outdoor projects to finish, more to start (and hopefully finish) before the weather cools down.  Although, I can’t lie.  We’re looking forward to fall temperatures.  Steady temps in the upper 90’s and lower 100’s without rain is more than I can handle for this long.  I think my Scandinavian roots are rebelling right now.  But that in no way means I’m ready for winter, so hold off, Mother Nature (please)!

Anyway, enough of my blabbing.  Here’s what we accomplished this July.

Join the festivities:  Free firework prints and a quick Americana table setting.

Unleashed:  A custom pillow tutorial which spurred a new item in the shop, this pretty new address stamp, my new towel buying strategy, quick pillow change for the deck mixing blue and orange, and a new (to me) fabric shop in Minnesota.

Loaded up:  Turning a cheap cardboard box into a pretty storage bin, hanging quirky art in the main bathroom, filling my sister’s stair wall with pictures.

Yet another:  Trip to Ikea, sharing their latest and greatest, Home Goods trip with Jen Jones, and a debate over the placement of something (this time a Sky Tube).

Looking back, we didn’t cross big-ticket items off our to do list.  Why did it feel so busy?  Oh, that’s right.  We’ve been busy hosting gaggles of guests, which is always a treat.  Overall, July has been enjoyable.

How was your July?  Care to share your highlight?  Perhaps you went on a fun vacation?  Finished a project?  Did nothing but relax and read?

      Well, it’s not a huge deal, just something fun I’m looking forward to. Glad you crossed a few things off your to do list, too. 🙂


  1. You mentioned a trip to Home Goods with Jen Jones… As of IHeartOrganizing? Is that the sister you met up with? Love that cyberspace has exposed me to both of your blogs

    1. Hi Jules!

      Yep, Jen from IHeartOrganizing. She and I became friends through blogging and we try to get together whenever I’m back visiting my family in Minnesota.
