Hello! What are you all up to on this long and last weekend of summer? I’m packing up today since we’re headed back to Las Vegas for a few days to work on the house and soak up some sun. Here’s a short list of links loved from the past week.

We’re headed back to California today since the kids are starting school again, so we spent the past two days wrapping up the remodel project in Nevada for the summer. We accomplished so much in the past month, I’ll share a few more of the changes we made in the upcoming week!

Yesterday I went thrifting at a few favorite stops for second hand goods I’ve discovered and scored some really great pieces. I’ve discovered these stops with tips from readers, online research and several trips, for locals see my list at the bottom of the post.
