Good morning from the beach! We’ve had too many thunderstorms to count, unfortunately, but we’re still having a great time. It is supposed to storm again today, but that will just give me more time to read your blogs!
ONE: I need your help! I really need to put some effort into re-vamping my blog, and the first item on the list is hiring someone to make it prettier. I would rather not spend a fortune, but I would like it to be unique, clean, and pretty. And not look like it does now – like I just uploaded a theme directly from WordPress. Any blog designer recommendations?! I’m all ears! Pretty Darn Cute Designs looks like a good option, as well as 17th Avenue Designs on etsy.
I could also SERIOUSLY use a blog tutorial, or a blogging conference that is focused on the basics. I can usually figure out how to do things, but I know I can make this more of a professional space, and I have plenty to learn. If you have any recommendations, I’ll take them! Thank you, girls!
TWO: Chasing Paper Removable Wallpaper. I saw this on Natalie‘s instagram earlier this week, and she also blogged about it. I’ve never loved the idea of wallpaper, only because it is labor intensive. But I think it adds depth to a room, and would love to use some in our powder bath, or when we re-do Davis’ room soon (switching out the crib for a bed). And this wallpaper is removable! I could handle that. Here are a few that I like: (This is not sponsored)!
THREE: I finally ordered my son a back pack! Schue Love posted about it, then I found it online later and loved it. I ordered it from Nordstrom (through Ebates with 6% back – any little bit helps!) and I cannot wait to get home and see it. I am excited about and dreading preschool all at the same time, but I know it will be beneficial for Davis!
For every State bag purchased, the company delivers a back pack, packed full of school essentials, to a child in need.
FOUR: When our family gets together, we tend to put a heavy focus on cooking. This week so far, our meals on vacation have been excellent. We have only gotten dinner out once.
Thank you all for reading!
