Happy Friday and Happy September! This is the month we’ve all been waiting for…it’s time for all the fall things to commence! 🙂
I haven’t done a roundup of 5 random things in a while – so here we go!
1// 4 Years of Blogging!
Today is my 4th Blogiversary! I started this blog from my couch 4 years ago and 839 posts later, here we are! In the past year I’ve begun to identify the blog as more than just a hobby – it’s part of who I am. I am so grateful to have a space where I can share my heart and my passion for homemaking with all of you. Thank you all so much for joining me here on the blog every week. I count my readers among my friends – you encourage me, you inspire me and you bless my life!
This year I finally got around to decorating my office which has increased my enjoyment of blogging even more!
2// This Week’s Mani
I’m always on the hunt for the perfect polish that has a long lasting, gel-like finish at an affordable price. My friend Lauren sent me a bottle of this gorgeous Gel Finish from Avon in the shade “very berry” and I’m loving it! I did put a coat of my Sally Hansen Diamond Strength topcoat over it because I prefer super shiny nails – but the color payoff on this polish is great! I didn’t do the best job of painting my nails this week so excuse the messy cuticles.
3// Cooler Weather
We had a week of such lovely weather! I never said I liked summer, so I’m always thrilled to see the temps start dipping into the 70’s!
4// A Fresh Look in The Dining Area
I love how changing up just one section of my house makes such an impact! Last weekend I changed out the linens on my dining room table and I’ve enjoyed it so much. When Paul has to work late, I usually eat supper at the bar counter. This week I ate at the table because it was so inviting!
5// Dollar Tree Treasures
I’ve seen a few people who found these beautiful shiny pumpkins at Dollar Tree, and I finally found a few for my collection! When I walk into Dollar Tree or the Target Dollar Spot and see something on the shelf that I’ve been hunting, I literally feel like everything is in slow motion until I get my hands on the item. I can almost hear Chariots of Fire playing in the background!
What’s made your week extra special? Tell me about it!
