May in Review

May was a fast month for me. Was it for you? I feel like I missed it! I am so glad to be on summer vacation with the kids!! I love having both of them at home together. It never lasts long enough though. They are changing so fast, I don’t want to miss anything.

I want to thank all of you for your sweet comments, shares, and support. If you are new to Bliss at Home I’d love to get to know you. Leave a comment and I promise to respond.

Saturday I turn 1!! Can you believe it? This little blog of mine is having a birthday. As with all birthdays there will be gifts. Gifts for you! I am doing a giveaway of some of my favorite things starting tomorrow. I just wanted to do something fun to commemorate my birthday and share the love you guys always show me. This is not a sponsored giveaway, just something I put together to give you. So don’t miss it, and enter starting tomorrow morning. The boys will be selecting a winner when the giveaway closes.

Birthday Giveaway

Here’s our May. Our big announcement for summer is the Let’s Rock This House! series. We will be revealing the results of Pimp My Library Wall next week and have started working on Pimp My Patio. Dave and I are having so much fun! I am keeping track of how many times I use the word pimp in a post. I got to tell you, the library wall is awesome!! If you want to get behind the scenes you can follow us on Instagram #rockthishouse.

PIMP MY HOUSE

DIY PROJECTS.

May DIY's

 

A lot of our time has been dedicated to the library wall so this was not a jam-packed DIY month. We did plant a raised herb garden complete with a gnome. The kids and I also used Lullaby Chalkboard Paint to transform thrifted art into a chalkboard. We can use it for art, a menu board, and Sam loves to draw on it on the floor.

OUT & ABOUT.

We invaded our closest IKEA to get those BILLY bookcases and a few other items made it home with us. You can see all our IKEA shenanigans here.

AROUND THE HOUSE.

Thrifting May

 

We’ve been thrifting a lot this past month. We have been having fun as a family finding books that interest us for our library wall. A few other things have wondered home with us too.

So, that’s May. Our June schedule is looking good. We have a couple big reveals planned, more DIY’s, and some really great products and giveaways to share.

 Enjoy your weekend and don’t forget to check back tomorrow to enter the Bliss at Home Birthday Giveaway!!

xoxo Kristin
