Happy Labor Day! I hope you’re able to relax at least a little bit today. We all slept in (rare in this house) and will take on a mix of getting things done and doing nothing. Fighting off a cold over here so moving a bit slowly. But here is a quick look at what we have been up to with our Monday Morning Wrap-Up.
We kicked off the long weekend with a BBQ. But don’t let those yummy potatoes fool you. We didn’t cook them all the way and learned our lesson about trying to grill potatoes. Oops. Any tips on that would be appreciated. They looked done. Ha.
Summer doesn’t have to be over, does it? My in-laws are still in town and we spent some time visiting family and swimming the day away. These two may fight like crazy from time to time but boy do they have fun together. They were attached at the hip in the pool and loved every second of it.
In home style news, I let you know that we ordered this rug and so I wanted to give you a peek of it in our home. We hadn’t lifted the rug on top of it yet. That is one heavy sofa from Old Bones Co. (more about that here) so I had to wait for my hubby to show up. But LOVE the rug. It has a couple of wrinkles from being rolled up but they should relax soon. Great neutral rug.
If you follow college football this was a heck of a game. Two over time periods and all. In the end Texas pulled out a win. Congrats to all of the Texas fans. I may or may not have lost my voice screaming throughout the four-hour game. Fun to have football season back. Although check back with me in December when it’s been on non-stop over here!
I am getting ready to head out for the Michaels Makers Summit so I will be sharing some of my go-to items that I always pack. Can’t wait to have a few days to be creative and see some dear friends who I have met through this blogging world. Just need to kick this cold to the curb.
And last but certainly not least, if you happen to be on Instagram, you may have seen this unbelievable outdoor space created by Monica Hibbs. Every inch of her home is beyond gorgeous. This is no exception and I keep staring at it wishing I could magically appear sitting on that outdoor daybed sipping lemonade. Go check out Monica’s full post here. You will be blown away.
Off to force myself to relax. Anybody else have a hard time shutting it off and putting your to-do list away? Luckily I have my children and husband to lead the way. They are REALLY good at enjoying downtime. Much to be said for that.
See you back here tomorrow.
