Weekend Reading

Sunday, August 17th, 2014

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.

Hey all! I’m so excited, tonight my guy and I are headed downtown to see Journey and Steve Miller Band rock at Mandalay Bay, it’s going to be so much fun! At last an opportunity to change out of paint and dust covered clothing…. New flooring and fixtures are getting installed next week at the house, I’ll share another update soon.

I hope to spend a few hours relaxing outdoors on Sunday, we’ve been going at such a fast pace these past two weeks. This outdoor scene looks like the perfect place to enjoy an August weekend!
