Amanda at Serenity Now is hosting a blog party with the intention of getting to know other bloggers. She describes it as “having a girlfriend over for coffee and dishing over anything and everything.” I especially love this idea since I’m new to blogging. The topics Amanda chose are below:
Best Activity You Participated in this Summer
We moved! Yay! Our family moved out of a 1900 square foot 3-story townhouse to a beautiful new home that we built from the ground up. Take a peek inside our new home here.
Summer Family Trips
No trips for us this summer, see above:) We did take our first day road-trip to Bastrop, Texas (about 2 1/2 hours away) for my little brother’s wedding.
James dressed up for the occasion
Best New Recipe You Tried
We’ve enjoyed some bbq on our new grill! Love it when hubby cooks:)
Most Exciting Thing You've Done this Summer
For me, becoming a stay-at-home-mom takes the cake. My son is just 5 months old and I don’t want to miss a thing! My days now consist of lots of time on the floor with this little guy. He’s currently on the roll:)
Coolest Crafty/Home Decor Thing you Made/Tried
I’m pretty excited about my “rainbow” bookcase. I’m probably going to rework it a bit soon. I think the “yellows” that are up by the “purples” need to come down to the “orange/yellows” and the “blues” need to move up:)
Best Book or Magazine Issue
Oh how I love to read! I recently subscribed to House Beautiful, and I really enjoy their content (informative) and photos (gorg). I also read the “Baby Whisperer” books. They have helped me so much.

Coolest New (to you) Blog You've Found
Oooh, this one’s hard! Can’t pick just one, so here are my “new” top
These little birdies at Hobby Lobby. So cute! And this lacquer box on sale at West Elm.
Best Post of the Summer
Still on Summer To-Do List
So many! But #1 is to try a “wallpaper” stencil like this:
