Hi y’all!

Like last week, I felt like this week flew by! I thankfully got some two projects wrapped up so they’re both highlights from this week but I’ll have to share the more detailed posts (and better pictures) later. Here are some of my favorite things from this week -ONE. I finished painting a bookcase to hold dishes in the dining area! I painted it white and Matt helped me replace the backing with something sturdier and add beadboard wallpaper. I smile every time I walk by it now… it’s prettier in person!Bookcase - MrsBombTWO. My new passport came! Just over 2 years since we got married, and I finally have a passport with Helen Winslow on it. Phew!


THREE. On Sunday, we had an adventure and went hiking at Jordan Lake. We did about a 3 mile loop and at one point there is an overlook where we could get down to the water. Of course, we took advantage of that to let Trixie swim a little bit. We all had so much fun! 🙂

FOUR. I’ve been working on repainting the trim and now all of the trim off of the living room/entry/kitchen is done. I’ve still got bedrooms, bathrooms, and the office to do, but this was a big milestone! See the difference in the bright white door and the dingier white on the door frame in the half-bath?

FIVE. I was able to work remotely today so we drove down to the beach last night and don’t have to fight traffic. I’m so excited for this long weekend! We have absolutely nothing planned – just relaxing on the beach! Trixie’s been resting all day for all of the swimming she’s going to do!

I hope it’s a great weekend for you! 🙂
