It’s the weekend! PTL!
Grab a cup of coffee. Wrap yourself in a blanket. And let’s take a look at the week in review including some of my favorite blogging finds…
As many of you know I am recovering from what was a mild case of COVID which has primarily resulted in the loss of taste and smell.
I am out of quarantine, but because my kids tested negative they were stuck in it for a full extra week, and they are really looking forward to being back to school next week!
Rephrase – we are ALL looking forward to them being back in school next week.
That being said it has been fun to watch the kids play together a lot.
Cutest curly-haired quarantine running buddy!
At the beginning of the summer, I buy one of these Brain Quest workbooks for each of my kids to work whether it be on vacation, in the car, etc.
Over this 2-week quarantine Caleb finished his entire book which is no small feat as they are huge.
Gracie really wanted to take a picture marking the occasion, and then Lily was also pumped to celebrate it with him.
This week I shared 17 fabulous family recipes for fall. A fun idea is to have your kiddos look through the post and mix and match your own fun fall meal together!
We also chatted about 44 basement ceiling ideas. In our current basement remodel we are going with an exposed joist ceiling, and we will be painting it white.
This post offers a gallery of exposed ceiling ideas, metal ceilings, wood beam ceilings, plank ceilings, decorative tiles, and drop ceilings.
In keeping with the basement theme, yesterday I shared the before and after of our vintage Victorian basement renovation.
You should see what this room looked like once we sold the house. In fact, the buyers told us that this room and the kitchen sold the house for them.
