Weekly Recap (in Instagram)


Happy Independence Day!

I love everything about this holiday.  Food, family, fireworks, and my favorite gals.......


The Hoodenpyle's always host a fun shindig.

*   *   *   *

I had a little fun in the sun.........


My friend Pullan invited me to White Water!

The wave pool was a big hit with Pullan's little lady (the grown-ups might have liked it too).

*   *   *   *

My friend Schlager surprised me with something I've been longing to try........


It is every bit as good as the hype claims!

(So good that I hid it from the mister.)

*   *   *   *

It's not every day that a celebrity comes to town.

And your friend convinces you to spend your entire afternoon watching him make elephants disappear.........


We spent most of the day on the right side of the caution tape.

It wasn't until the end that we were feeling a little wild.  Brave.

Then we got caught.

*   *   *   *

And finally.

The laundry room renovation took its first step.

Bob came to give me a bid..........


I am so excited.

I am so obsessed.

I'm sorry if you follow me on Pinterest.  My new pins dedicated to this project might be littering your feed.

But who doesn't love a pedestal sink?

  14. Cookie butter is THE BEST. Do you ever buy those ginger cat cookies from Trader Joe's? If so, I highly recommend making gingery delicious cookie sandwiches with those and the cookie butter.
