Instagram Roundup


June and July are my favorite.  I mean, I am a teacher.  And this summer, I'm determined to make it one for the books.

That means getting my house ship shape.  For good!!! 

One room I've really struggled with is what my friends call "The Special Room."  This perpetually messy guest bedroom is now and forever clean.......


Cleaning that room was also in preparation for the annual friends' garage sale......


Lots of laughs.  Lots of sales.  Always a favorite summer event.

But I have a feeling that my most favorite summer event hasn't even happened yet........


The mister and I planned a getaway!!!  Naples, Florida!!!  If you've been, we'd love recommendations of things to do or places to visit!

Maybe I'll have some time on the beach to get ahead on my thick stack of books......


After finishing Looking for Alaska, I happened to win a book giveaway (Thank you Amanda)!!!!  So I have plenty to read from now til school starts.

That is if this little baby will let me........


He loves evening cuddles, and it usually means I have to put my book down because he wants to be cradled right on my middle! 

Not a bad way to end the day.

Those Florida sunsets won't be too shabby either!

  1. That special room looks AMAZING. I hope you keep walking by it and smiling because it's lovely and clutter free :). How fun that you have a trip to FL coming up! And, that must be some garage sale, I usually hear people grumbling about them, not looking forward to them :)

  2. I spent a week in Naples earlier this year and had the BEST time - you will absolutely love it! There are tons of great restaurants, good shopping (and eating) at the Mercato, and fun alligator airboat rides...but honestly, my favorite thing was relaxing on the beach and enjoying those gorgeous sunsets every night :) If you have any questions about specific places, let me know!

  7. We have a "special room" too and it's always always messy! How in the world does a guest room (that typically doesn't have guests in it) get messy?!

    Never been to Naples, but if you get the chance check out Pensacola Beach, FL. It's absolutely beautiful.
