I’m in the middle of several projects right now, and I thought I’d have a little fun time today. Why not share all the things I’m excited about in August!
Hands down the numero uno thing that I’ve been super excited about for August is HAVEN!! Yes, it is almost here and blogland has been all a buzz. I can’t wait to meet my bloggy friends and make new ones. It’s going to be a fun-filled learning experience. Hopefully, I will have some helpful tips to share when I get back.
With that said, #2 is the pool at the hotel we are staying at for Haven. I’m getting there a day early, so guess what I plan on doing.
That looks so relaxing after a long car ride! Yes, I am driving with the fam and not flying. If I was going solo I would totally fly, but we have family in the area and we thought it would be a good reason to bring everyone.
IKEA. I know lots of you live near an IKEA, but I sadly do not. Our closest IKEA is a 3 hour drive away, so on our way home I plan on hitting IKEA Atlanta.
Clothes shopping. You may think what’s the big deal, right? Well, I am really good at buying clothes in the fall and winter, but when summer hits I tend to live in my gym clothes. Pathetic, I know. As I was looking at my closet for some Haven outfits, I realized my summer wardrobe needed an update. By the looks of things, it appears most of my clothes are 4-6 years old and they look it, with the exception of a couple of things I got on clearance last year. Those two items are not going in my suitcase because I have worn them so much they are starting to look 4 years old too! I have been hitting up the summer sale racks. Until recently, I had forgotten how nice well-tailored clothes feel and look on! I must have been in a coma or something all this time, because this is not me. I love clothes!
One more month of summer! Yes, I realize some of you are already preparing for back to school. I love that the school my kids go to has a traditional schedule. I feel like they get a full summer which means I get a full summer too.
Our patio reveal! It’s almost done. We actually are waiting on something to get restocked so we can finish it and show you guys what we came up with. It’s definitely not a plain, boring space anymore!
Seeing our friends that we don’t get to see all the time. We have some buddies coming to stay with us for a weekend-o-fun. I love playing house with them and their sweet family. We also get to take a little road trip to see our long-lost friends who live in a convent. Well, it’s not a convent anymore! We’ll be sharing more about that on the blog this month too.
Getting healthy. The ups and downs of my health issues could be a really long, sad tale. Not going to get all Debbie Downer with you guys, so don’t worry! I just really want August to be a month of healing. I am praying I will feel like my old self again one of these days and if not I pray I learn to adjust.
Tomorrow I will be previewing my project for week 3 of the Inspired Design Challenge. This time West Elm is the store. Love it!
