Hi! Hi!

Who was I to think that summer was going to be laid back and relaxing?  Pshaw.  Totally anything but. 

{And I'm pretty sure totally anything but is not a sentence, but I am determined not to backspace as it saves me time :) }

School is coming real soon, so I've been blogging a lot over at The Inspired Apple. If you've found this blog recently and are looking for teaching-related posts, I blog exclusively about school there.

In other news, after almost two months of sleeping in our bedroom, Becks is *finally* in his big boy room!  It's not even close to being done, but when you've had to hurdle a pack-n-play to get in bed every night it doesn't matter that the toe strip isn't in place in his new room yet.  He can still totally sleep there. 

I don't know how many of you live in older homes or have lived through renovations, but it's exhausting!  There is always something to do.  And if you've followed me for any length of time, you probably know that we've been renovating nonstop since January of this year.  That's seven straight months of DIYing, dust, displaced furniture, and the occasional disagreement ;)  I'm pretty sure that somehow spells S-T-R-E-S-S or maybe C-R-A-Z-Y.

I have some great thrift finds to share {soon-ish}, so stop in soon :)

Happy Tuesday!

Three-year-olds are a trip!

Gosh he looks so grown up. Savour the last drops of summer. And I totally hear you on the older home projects. We're shifting our bedrooms around for the 3rd time in less than a year.

He is too funny! It's a wonder you can get all of those renovations done with that little cutie to distract you! :)

It is totally true about rennovating older homes! My dad and I worked on my first home together, and it just never got completely done! What's funny is my husband and I just bought a house this spring that was built in 2003, so you'd think there wouldn't be much to do...wrong. We are changing so much. Guess it is true for a house of any age, ha! :-) Love your blog, by the way!

OMgosh that picture cracked me up! How cute :)

I haven't lived through any renovations but I can tell you that I would probably NOT survive....I can only imagine the stress!!

Totally feel your pain with remodeling! We bought a 120 year old home 7 years ago when we got married. We LOVED remodeling and would stay up late all the time or work through the night...PRIOR TO CHILDREN. Now that we have two kids, I HATE remodeling!!

I totally used to do that same thing that Beck's is doing... what is it about being a kid that makes you wanna see how many small spaces you can smoosh yourself into!?
