What a weekend to close out the summer! We’ve spent the last four days in southern Oklahoma with friends (who are like family) soaking up those last fleeting moments of the season at their lake house. It was five kids under the age of 6, which was no easy task, but we made magical memories and all came back a little happier and a little lighter before the school year begins on Thursday.
Being out of town since Thursday morning doesn’t help the home projects along much, but I did get a little bit of scraping done on the popcorn ceilings before we headed out.
A LOT more to do, but you’ve got to start somewhere. One patch down, a lot of dusty patches to go!
This week, I have incredible goals of getting this space completely scraped and drywall put up. When Kansas City doesn’t reach 90 degrees all week, you just have to go for it and get outside.
A weekend at the lake with my family and friends is exactly what I call fun!
Lake of the Arbuckles, you are always a good time and you always make our summer a little more special. I hope you were able to do something, big or small, to make memories with the ones you love this weekend, too!
If you missed last week’s blog post, I shared my newest Monday post: Weekend Update, Hearth & Hand Fall Collection Favorites, and a great cookie recipe that lets you skip the campfire and the mess! I’m excited to share all sorts of fun ideas this upcoming week!
