Myrtle Beach Bound

July 17, 2015

ebb + flow :: myrtle beach bound

As you read this, the Red Head and I will be on a Myrtle Beach-bound plane, hopefully with a beverage in hand. After a busy few weeks of projects, home reno, feeling under the weather and very little sleep, some beach time with family and some new books sounds perfect. I’ll logging off until we’re back to the land of 10,000 lakes so carry on without me and don’t miss me too much!

Weekend Wrap Up 7.13

July 13, 2015

ebb + flow :: weekend wrap up

Oh hey, Sunday, you snuck by! So I’m coming at you today with a weekend wrap up on a Monday and one very, very tired brain. Hosting my mom, a baby shower and a long week of adventures has finally caught up with me. I’m going to accomplish three things tonight (one of which is eating dinner, the other two freelance-related) and snooze until tomorrow morning. Hopefully that short coma will give me some much-needed energy for tomorrow. While I do that, enjoy these links from around the web this week!

Puppy Dive

July 7, 2015

ebb + flow :: swimming puppy

The Erickson house is under a curse right now. Everything is breaking or causing some sort of trouble. Tile in our entry is cracking. Our “simple” garage door fix turned into a very expensive, not-so simple garage door fix. Our master bedroom project may never end. We have birds living in our gutters and wasps keeping them company nearby. Our yard looks like a wild prairie and we’re running low on hours and energy in the day. Vent session over, though, because our oh-so handsome grey dog conquered his fear of swimming over the weekend. Let’s just focus on that. After many weeks of coaxing, bribing and maybe a few tosses (bad parents!) Drizzy Drake is obsessed with the water and I was able to capture him in all his glory above while at a cabin this weekend. What a stud.

Weekend Wrap Up 7.5

July 5, 2015

ebb + flow :: weekend wrap up

As I write this the Red Head is sanding away upstairs. Up next, is priming (that’s where I come in) and after that is an early bedtime. We’ve had a weekend full of cabin time, family time, boat time, fireworks and some serious master bedroom work (we’re getting so close to being done!) and we’re spent. While I muster up some energy and track down my second Diet Coke of the day, enjoy these links from around the web.

Fourth of July

July 2, 2015

ebb + flow :: fourth of july

Nothing beats Fourth of July in Minnesota. That’s a statement I truly stand by and I’m hoping this weekend keeps the streak of great holiday weekends we’ve had lately. The Red Head and I are hitting the road some cabin time, catching some fireworks on the lake Saturday and working around our humble abode on Sunday. We seem to have an unlucky spree of odd things breaking lately, so let’s cross our fingers that comes to an end as we piece our house back together. Wherever this weekend takes you I hope it’s filled with beautiful friends and family and some appreciation for the good ol’ USA.
