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!

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!

Twirl and Take a Bow Linky Party



Welcome back, everyone! I love this party. And I love all the features that my teammates pick each week. The creativity out there in the blogosphere is pretty amazing.

And as I was plugging in Tammy's post tonight, I was super surprised that she picked one of my creations as a feature this week! {I'm getting featured on my own blog by another blogger. Mind. Officially. Blown!}

Thanks, Tammy! I was not expecting that at all.

Enjoy the inspiration, friends!

Recipe: Sausage Pasta Toss




Planning or even cooking dinner really isn't my thing. 

Thinking about what to make is simply exhausting.

Do I have all the ingredients?

Does something need to be thawed?

Reruns of Fixer Upper are on,
do I really need to get up and start cooking?

I would actually be alright with cereal, for dinner, for the rest of my life if it meant I didn't have to think about it ever again.

However, my amazing hubby does like to cook and he is good at it!

Thank goodness! We won’t starve around here.

When we first got married we made a deal…

If he cooks, then I clean up the mess and vice versa.

It's a pretty sweet deal!

So this summer Matt came up with this little dinner {and of course, I cleaned up the dishes afterward}.

Pretty in Pink…A Lamp Makeover



This past weekend I had my 20th high school reunion.  

Two of my besties from childhood and a few other very dedicated classmates worked extremely hard planning this amazing event.

Twirl and Take a Bow Link Party



Happy Tuesday and welcome to another great week of Twirl & Take a Bow!  We are so glad that you're here!  For those of you that may not know me yet, my name is Brooke and I blog over at DesignedByBH.com.  I'd love for you to stop by and visit me!

Can you guys believe that it's almost time for school to start back already?  I don't have any kids of my own, but I have a large number of teacher friends...and they're not ready yet!  I also have a lot of friends with kids and they can't wait for the new school year!  What do you think?  Hasn't the summer just flown by?
Kids or no kids, I'm personally not ready to say sayonara to summer yet, which is why this week's features all revolve around a Nautical/Coastal theme.

 Let's squeeze in a little more time on the water, shall we?
