July is over? Phew.. that was quick. I think taking 3 weeks off in the beginning of the month threw me for a loop. I can't believe we have less than a month and the kids are back in school.. ALREADY!
July started off with my Patriotic Independence Day round up. I have to admit I still have a lot of the red, white and blue decor up at my house, to keep me in the Olympic spirit. Go team USA! I shared a little bit about the first half of my vacation, and I promise to tell you about the rest of the trip soon. Because I was out of town for the majority of the month, I didn't get to share many crafts, although I did have one: my scrappy monogrammed wreath. I only tried one recipe this month, but that is what happens when you go on vacation.. No cooking!
Upon returning back to reality, I gave you a tour of my microscopic back yard:
And the rest of the month was all about my KITCHEN!! (Are you sick of reading about it yet?)
First I stained my island
Then hemmed and hawed about what to do with the rest of the cabinets:
Until I finally settled on a color scheme and backsplash!
I promise that I will have at least a sneak preview, if not a full reveal of the kitchen coming up some time in August.
Lastly, I want to thank Kia, my first ever guest poster who wrote about getting great back-to-school deals.
