I can’t believe it’s already late July, it’s been really busy these last few weeks so this update will be quick.
I attended a DIY Blogger Conference in Atlanta, Georgia, it was an amazing experience and full of informational classes and hands on sessions that I know will prove invaluable. Besides that, I had the opportunity to meet with some amazing vendors and sponsors that were so generous sharing their products with us in hope that we might share our excitement with our readers. As a new blogger, I have never had a sponsored post, so it was very interesting to learn how brands really value the rapport bloggers create with their readers and are eager to work with us.
Now, back to what I accomplished around the house before my four day conference…
New to the Exterior Projects Tab
I had the opportunity to join a group of bloggers on a “blog hop”. The topic was The Procrastinators Summer Porch Tour, which happened to be perfect timing for me because I was working on our front yard landscape and porch. So I hustled to get the post together. At the bottom of the attached page, I have included the links to the other bloggers “Porch Tour posts”, it may be easiest to keep my window open while you visit the other sites so you can go in order and not lose track of the porches you have seen.

Third installment to my deck repair series
In my last deck post I mentioned the area under our stairs that had become an eye sore, this was my solution…To build another deck! It only took three days so I’m really glad I went with my gut rather than choosing to throw down some pine straw or rocks. Read all about it by clicking on the image.
So it’s been busy, busy this month! We have celebrated two birthdays and are preparing for our first family vacation in about 4 years, I am so excited!!!
During any downtime that I’ve had, I have been working hard on the finishing work on the basement ceiling in the basement living room and would really like to get started on the final ceiling in our future kitchenette.
Next time I check in I hope I can report that I’ve gotten started on that, I have all of the supplies, just have to find the time!
Appreciate you taking the time to visit me and check out my projects!
