Weekend Reading

Friday, September 6th, 2013

Football season is here (yes!) and we were rooting for Denver last night since the Ravens beat the 49ers in the Superbowl earlier this year (boo Ravens, sorry fans). Speaking of football, I am smitten with this kitchen featured in Architectural Digest, it’s the LA home of quarterback Tom Brady and model Gisele Bundchen. Follow the link to see the entire home and show your man the weight room, he will totally drool.

Weekend Reading

Friday, August 23rd, 2013

Wow how fast is this year moving along? I blinked and here we are at the end of August. The kids are back to school this week and I always have mixed feelings about it. I love the long leisurely days of summer but also welcome the structure and schedule. They’re excited to see all their friends again and it always looks like the group of them grew a foot in just a few short months.

We’re starting a house painting project next week over at the shelter home (the one where we remodeled this kitchen and this bathroom). The exterior is looking pretty sad so with the help of some volunteers and generous donations we’ll be making it over with paint and a few other upgrades, I’ll share some photos when it’s all complete.


And a few posts I enjoyed reading this week:
