Magic with a Mason Jar

My 6 year old is all about magic these days. 

He watches every you tube video he can find on how to do the tricks.  

I love how interested he is in this craft.

So without further ado, I present The Great Little Monkey and some magic with a mason jar....

Why do You Run?

Great Grandma Helen’s Chocolate Syrup

Have I mentioned that my husband is a marathon runner?

He probably wouldn't tell you himself unless it came up in conversation. He is too humble for that. This accomplishment is one of the many things that I love about him.

His reason for running....

"...because I can".

And if you ask me if I will be joining him in this personal journey of new distances and times beat, my reply will be…

“I only run if it's raining or I am being chased”.

We have something new for you today!

The Twirl & Take a Bow Party will now be having Guest Co-Hosts! Each Guest Co-Host will be with us for 6 weeks, which means you will be introduced to another fabulous blog and anything you share will then be on 7 Blogs!

They'll be sharing a little bit about themselves and what they've been working on and then on their last week as co-host, they'll be choosing the Top Picks!
We're so excited and happy to be adding this fun feature to the party!

Introducing Our Guest Co-Host for the Next 6 Weeks

The Heathered Nest

Heather and Dave are new to the blogging scene, but old hands when it comes to DIY and home renovation projects. Him, an engineer, and her, a physical therapist, have together restored/remodeled five homes since marrying nine years ago. Recently, the two have moved out of their city-loving comfort zone into the country, to give their kiddos room to roam and to embrace some "R&R" for themselves, that is, "renovation" and "rehabilitation" of yet another home in need of some serious updating. We think you'll enjoy following them along on their latest DIY'ing adventures over at the Heathered Nest.

Twirl and Take a Bow with Leslie

I'm so excited to be selecting this week's Features from the selection of amazing links shared at last week's Twirl & Take a Bow Party! I'm also recovering from the weekend...where I had to move two kids into the dorm. It was exhausting, but exciting!
If you get a chance, hop over and visit me at House on the Way, because I'm sharing the cute DIY Stenciled Curtains that I made from a twin sheet for my daughter's dorm room. My son prefers I not get a hold of his room, but my daughter is more than willing for me to help her decorate!

House on the Way

Thanks so much for joining us at the party and if you're not familiar with House on the Way, I'd love to have you stop by and I'd love to connect with you on your favorite social media site or you can subscribe by email.

DIY Blog Tour

Sometimes when you least expect it, things just fall into place. 

Last week I met Laura from The Unique Nest. I got absorbed in her blog...there are so many great ideas!

As I read further and we emailed back and forth, I learned that not only does she have the same middle name as me, but she is also a teacher and lives only an hour away! What a small world!

I was thrilled when she invited me to participate in the DIY Blog Tour. Laura is super sweet and her blog rocks! I particularly love her deck makeover.

Thank you, Laura, for inviting me to join in this blog tour!


Now for my interview...

I'm Nesting


I'm in nesting mode around these parts.  

Nope, I’m not expecting a baby {that ship has thankfully sailed}.  

The summer’s lazy days have slipped away from me, however; and school will be starting soon.  

I feel like I have so much more left to accomplish in the next 2 weeks...finish our fireplace tile, paint my bathroom, paint a mirror, make some crafts, but the biggest job is getting my classroom ready for the upcoming year. 

It's time to make a few miner adjustments to my lazy days, so today’s top picks are brought to you be the letter S {for school that is}. There are so many good tips for getting organized that I just had to put them all together for you.

Enjoy the inspiration!
