August in Review: Vacation! Haven! and Bacon!

Since I've gotten back from Haven, I finally feel like I am hitting my blogging stride once again.  I took a long break towards the end of my pregnancy, and having a newborn in the house can really be a productivity damper, but lately a lot of projects are finally falling into place.

In fact, I had enough projects in August that I actually can do a round up!  

This month I shared about my Haven experiences in a series of 2 posts.  I met so many of my blog idols along with learning how to improve my blog.
On that same trip I also visited my parents and helped fix up their boat house.

This makeover included repairing a cinderblock wall.  That was so much fun, I just had to share the tutorial:

I also thought I would share my mom's Rustic Nautical Mantle.

I am really getting into the "nautical" theme lately and I think I am going to do the baby's nursery in that theme.  Check out my "Baby Boy's Room" Pinterest board to see what I'm thinking.  I shared my daughters' nursery (along with a bunch of awesome wall paint patterns) here.

Wow! To think, that was 7 years ago already!  They aren't babies anymore!  In fact they are headed back to school.. so I whipped up this gift card printable for the teacher:

And what month would be complete without the inclusion of some bacon?

I have a lot of great posts lined up for September.  It is finally FALL and I'm ready!

    Good grief girl! You were working on a renovation around Haven! I needed a week just to recover from Haven. So nice to meet you in person.

  2. I want to go to Haven one of these years! No bacon for me, I'm the only vegetarian in my house. My oldest got bacon of the month club for her 12th birthday from my good friend. I make my husband cook it on the grill because I can't handle the smell. But they can eat it in the house. :)


Thanks for your comments. I try to get back to anyone with a question.. so please make sure to leave an email address if you want a reply!
