Summer Break is Over


I didn't intentionally take a summer break from the blog, but I may as well have! Now that I am back from a week on the beautiful Gulf Coast (not a drop of oil in sight!) I feel like it's back to school time, and thus, time for a better routine, which will again include blogging.


But my break wasn't all fun and games. One afternoon I walked outside to find a huge tree had fallen through our fence in the backyard. The tree was dead and it only took out one section of the fence, so after a day with the chainsaw and leftover boards (and lots of water deliveries from me), Wes had the backyard as good as new.


We've also been busy making room for baby. I'm a few days shy of the half-way point and starting to feel like it's time to see some progress. I've gotten three of our five closets cleaned out, and we rearranged and got rid of some furniture this weekend. And, of course, we've added some, like this flea-mall high chair, which I've added to my needs-a-paint-job list. More to come on these projects!

What a find!! I adore that antique high chair. Most of the ones I see these days are just hideous...too modern and too bright!

Congrats on cleaning out those closets! Not one of my favorite jobs. We also had a tree fall on the house a few months ago. Luckily it bounced right off without doing too much damage.

The Gulf Coast photo is breath taking. Great shot. I just love the colors.

I did the same thing - unintentional blog break. Glad to see you are back! I grew up on the Gulf Coast and always love to see photos of home!

That high chair is too cute! Hope to see more baby projects soon!

We've missed you. And love the high chair. Saw one at good will recently but it was missing the tray. Let me know if you see another one around town. I'd love one for Collins.
