i’m not sure who was more excited… me or the kiddos!

“are you kidding me!”
was exactly what i said when i pulled THIS out of the box!
CAN you be in love with a PILLOW?
i flipping LOVE this pillow!
i think i need more!

not positive yet what i’ll do with this way cool bucket bag…
because there are a million uses…
rolled up towels… books by the bed… carry all in the car… hobby room storage…
it was one of those “oh that is SO neat… so many possibilities”!
we had way too much fun… well that or we’re just a bunch of NUTS!

and then this galvanized pedestal… adore ALL things galvanized… ADORE!

should be fun coming up with neat ways to use it!  

my FLOR box came yesterday too!

i have been wanting to give this option a whirl for a LONG time!
considering getting a plush variety for our living room…
but thought i’d order something a lot smaller first…
for our entry… see what we thought!

really like the heavy feel of the squares… very substantial… really sturdy!
this particular type i ordered is for high foot traffic… 
you can even rinse them clean under water…
love that idea!

NOTHING at all to the installation…
basically just deciding how you want then configured… stick & go!

giving the rug a roll… i think it passed the test!

before i go… a secret… i am STILL in my jammies… it’s after eleven!
what in the world am i thinking!
i think my body is trying to hang onto summer… the LAZY part of it at least!
enough of this…
i gotta roll too…
kick it into high gear!
i can imagine you’re just like me…
a TO DO list a million miles long… and only a few days to get it all done!
i can almost hear the school bell ring… :)!

well… this weekend we got a LITTLE bit done in the house!
our garage is DONE… whoo hoo… THAT was an undertaking… my word…
happy it is complete… vehicles in and all!
we hung a FEW things too…
the all important hook for the purse… right inside the back entrance…

the mounts…

more hooks…


and yet there are stacks & piles of this and that…


here and there…


really everywhere!

someone want to come help!
sure could use an extra eye!

big things this week though… BIG!
gotta get ‘er done!
school is back in session this NEXT monday!
and speaking of school… we got campbell IN a school!
thank you Lord!
it is NOT the school IN our neighborhood… our first choice…
but from what i have gathered… researched… yadda yadda… it is a GREAT school!
there were just a tidge over 100 hundred students in the ENTIRE school last year!
i find that very refreshing!
high hopes!
we’re looking forward to the open house… social… this thursday!

all i know… we have got to be vigilant about getting back to a NORMAL sleep schedule…
the staying up late.. sleeping late… won’t fly for school!
i think one of the girlies slept til 10 today!
they sure love their beauty rest!

as much as i love the “what ever goes” of summer…
i AM looking forward to “back to school”… are you?
