This past week totally kicked my butt – the travel back and forth to Las Vegas and supervision of subcontractors, the kids’ semi-final and final baseball/softball games, and the Warriors in the NBA playoffs all demanded my attention. Have I shared that I started taking fitness kickboxing classes in the a.m.? That’s when it’s my turn to kick butt :) The classes are so fun but depleting, it’s all left me needing rest, thankfully it’s Memorial Day Weekend, three days that I’ll be doing just that.

Here’s the roundup of inspiring posts and projects from around the blogosphere in the continuing series, enjoy!

How sweet is this shared room for kids? Project by Joni at Lay Baby Lay.
