Amanda at Serenity Now is hosting a blog party with the intention of getting to know other bloggers. She describes it as “having a girlfriend over for coffee and dishing over anything and everything.” I especially love this idea since I’m new to blogging. The topics Amanda chose are below: Best Activity You Participated in this Summer We moved! Yay! Our family moved out of a 1900 square foot 3-story townhouse to a beautiful new home that we built from the ground up. Take a peek inside our new home here. Summer Family Trips No trips for us this summer, see above:) We did take our first day road-trip to Bastrop, Texas (about 2 1/2 hours away) for my little brother’s wedding. James dressed up for the occasion Best New Recipe You Tried We’ve enjoyed some bbq on our new grill! Love it when hubby cooks:)
Most Exciting Thing You’ve Done this Summer For me, becoming a stay-at-home-mom takes the cake. My son is just 5 months old and I don’t want to miss a thing! My days now consist of lots of time on the floor with this little guy. He’s currently on the roll:)
Coolest Crafty/Home Decor Thing you Made/Tried I’m pretty excited about my “rainbow” bookcase. I’m probably going to rework it a bit soon. I think the “yellows” that are up by the “purples” need to come down to the “orange/yellows” and the “blues” need to move up:)
Best Book or Magazine Issue Oh how I love to read! I recently subscribed to House Beautiful, and I really enjoy their content (informative) and photos (gorg). I also read the “Baby Whisperer” books. They have helped me so much. *via House Beautiful
Coolest New (to you) Blog You’ve Found Oooh, this one’s hard! Can’t pick just one, so here are my “new” top 10 11!: Adventures in Mommyhood Decor Chick Design Darling Just a Girl Live Creating Yourself Modern Jane Not Just Paper and Glue New Nostalgia Stilettos and Diaper Bags Super Stinky Boys Three Dogs at Home Favorite Bargain These little birdies at Hobby Lobby. So cute! And this lacquer box on sale at West Elm. Best Post of the Summer I’d have to say the post I did about white kitchens is up there. I love, love, love the images and they were the inspiration for my current kitchen. Still on Summer To-Do List So many! But #1 is to try a “wallpaper” stencil like this: *via Centsational Girl
