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!

My Adidas sandal days are long gone but doesn’t something about the image above make you want to run to your nearest Sports Authority and buy another pair?

Today I experienced a new feeling and that feeling was envy over a child’s room. Other than the potential shin-destroying beam at the front of the bed, I am 100% sold on this little nook.

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!
If i had these kicks I probably wouldn’t even wear them outside. Those beauties don’t need the pavement mucking them up!

Give me the tile. Give me those shelves. I’ll also take the light, the cake stands and one of everything else. Please and thank you.

Thanks for the reminder, Marilyn. It’s time to dust off my journal and get back to it.

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.

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.
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.
