Is it really Friday again?
I seriously can't believe it.
Time is going by way to quickly, no?
I don't know about you, but that mid-week holiday they called the Fourth of July really threw me off this week.
Yesterday I was thinking it was Monday, Tuesday I was thinking it was Friday?
Anyway, if we were at coffee right now, I'd tell you that I am SO ready to be settled into this house.
We have a ton of little projects left and they don't seem to end.
I feel like once the projects are finished and we are "settled" we will be able to relax in the evenings and not feel pressured to "do stuff". Does that make sense?
I am so thankful for this little home I can't even stand it! And because of that, I want it to be *perfect*.
Obviously, it won't be perfect, (ie. we found a VINE growing into our home through the floorboard... yes, like Jumanji-style) but perfectly imperfect, I suppose.
I want it to be a place that David and I can be proud of.
That when we invite others into our home, we are happy to show it off!
One day we will get there, until then, we will just make do :)
Here are some fun instas from this week ::
rockin' my Soludos. Mint Ikat + Coral = perfection.
goodies from Along for the Ride --> she is just precious!
fun Fourth of July treats for our little get-together
THIS stuff is amazing. spread it on a magic pop or eat it outta the can. YUM.
my girlfriends came in to town this past weekend for a fun wedding.. LOVED seeing them!
SO-LU-DOS. You gotta get some.
Fro-yo-yo-yo-yo --> And I didn't even have to pull my husband's arm about it ;)

Dave & me on Independence day
Last night I whipped up a fun statement necklace with help from Andrea's DIY. I can't wait to make some more!
watermelon = summertime. 'nuff said.
So, when I woke up to this email I just about wet the bed. I. Can't. Wait. for this conference next year!
a good ole American meal for the 4th. ;)
If we were at coffee, I'd probably talk to you about blogging. Cuz, you know, it would be a blogging date ;)
I would ask you your thoughts on all these bloggers writing posts on "blogging rules" + "blogging do's and dont's" + etc., etc.
What ARE your thoughts?
Mine are this ::
Why do you care if I center the text in all of my posts?
Why do you tell me I *MUST* have photos in all of my posts?
Maybe these things worked for YOU, but that doesn't necessarily mean it will work for me... or some one else!
I don't normally rant about things like this, but its just been bugging me & I had to get it off of my chest.
I guess if I did these things, I'd have more readers????? haha, just kidding!
I love you guys-- thanks for reading and loving on me via comments//emails//etc.
Even though I am really bad at replying to all my comments, reading & commenting on other's blogs, etc., etc. I really love and appreciate each of you.
