Weekend Reading

Friday, June 12th, 2015

The last few days have been a medley of fun by the pool and work behind the scenes, hence the slow blogging this week. The family is in Las Vegas while I’m working on the house before my aunt moves in next month. I’ve been all over town picking up tile for a backsplash and light fixtures too, the kitchen appliances arrived today, hooray! I’m headed back to California on Saturday but will return in a few weeks to wrap up the project – I’m excited to feature the completed master bathroom and kitchen at the end of the month!

Happy weekend everyone! We’ve invited guests over on Sunday for a barbeque, we like to entertain more during the summer especially on Sunday afternoons when the weather is so nice and the weekend is winding down. I’m headed to the nursery to grab some plants to fill in some bare spots in the yard, I’ll be doing some front porch sprucing and gardening and speaking of isn’t this potting room porch dreamy?
