Hi there, bloggers! It’s been a hot minute since I’ve joined in on a link up!
I’m so excited!
Guess what else? I made up a new little logo for this itty bitty blog of mine. I’m quite proud of it! What do you guys think?! My creative juices were a-flowin’ the other day and I needed a bit of direction with my blog – to remember why I started blogging in the first place all those years ago – to blog about our family and our home and to document our adventures and create along the way. This blog post isn’t much, but gosh, it felt great to bring it all together.
Okay, I best be getting to why I’m here today…
Today is such a fun post and it’s one of my favorites and one that I love to read on other blogs –
What I Ordered From Amazon.
These are supposed to be monthly, buy I couldn’t resist posting about some of my favorites from the beginning of summer…
Let’s get to it!
Jon and I recently purchased leather couches for our main living room so that meant moving our only other couch that we’ve ever owned down into the basement. I knew I wanted a new rug downstairs since the two we had purchased years ago were never really my style, albeit, they were fantastic quality. This rug does not disappoint and it gives the room an entirely new vibe even with a 12 year old couch. Perhaps someday I’ll pluck up the courage to share our space with the World Wide Web! 😉
Over the course of the last few years we’ve slowly converted part of our basement into a home gym. Jon lifts heavy weights so we needed something to stop the weights from damaging our concrete floors. For myself, these mats have helped anytime I decide to work on my core. An old carpet and a mat just weren’t cutting it. We love these so much and they’ve really helped “make the space.”
I saw someone over on Instagram post about these! She was in Disney World and was trying to keep her kids occupied and then she busted these out of her “Mary Poppins” purse! I ended up ordering these for Jane but found Henry and Eliza…and the neighbor boys, playing with them, too. They don’t last for long – maybe a few days, BUT they’re totally worth it and helped entertain the kids long enough for me to cook up dinner for a few nights! These could make for a great stocking stuffer – just be aware that they’re not suitable for curious little babies.
Here’s a top that I’m anxiously awaiting to wear. This popped up on my Facebook and it had my name written all over it – the 3/4 sleeve, the tunic style, the neckline – it has it all. It comes in lots of different colors, too.
Lastly, I’ll share this simple and affordable planner. I love me some Emily Ley Planners and I very well may purchase one again in the future, buy given the current state of things…and living in Michigan…and living in one of the worst counties for the you-know-what-virus, I opted for this planner for the time being and so far, so good. It’s getting the job done and if anything, it’s preparing me for when/if I decide to spoil myself by way of Emily Ley.
It’s Wednesday and it also happens to be…. Prime Purchases day!!! Let’s jump right in! I’m linking up with Tanya from The Other Side of the Road. We’re hosting a plethora of people here in about a month and our house is going to be jam-packed. We know one thing’s for sure, we’ll need coffee….
Hey, Hey, Hey! Happy Prime Purchases Day! My Amazon account has been all over the place and it’s also filled with a few things I’d love to try out. With that said, for today’s post, I’ve included a little bit of both. I’ll start with these window coverings. If you’ve been following me over on…
Hey guys! I’m here today to share with you a fun gift guide for the toddler in your life! I present to you – tried and true ride on toddler toys! We’ve owned or still own all of these items with the exception of the wiggle car. The neighbor boys had these and the kids…
Hey, hey, hey! I’m back after a much needed break and the best time spent with my family! I wasn’t planning on taking off so much time, but snuggles and laziness called and I took full advantage of lots of precious moments! I’ll be sharing our Christmas break recap(s) in the next day or two….
TGIF – Thank Goodness it’s FEBRUARY! Gosh, January took forever and a year! Actually, the first part of January wasn’t too bad, but the second half draaaaaaaaaaaged. With it being February, comes another installment of Prime Purchases! Coming off of Christmas, I was really careful to not spend a bunch during the month of January,…
IT’S PRIME PURCHASES TUESDAY! I didn’t participate in Prime Purchases last month due to it being the Tuesday after the Fourth of July, but mostly all of our purchases were FOR the Fourth of July so most items really wouldn’t have been worth grabbing since the holiday had passed, but I’m back today with some…
Your new logo is the CUTEST!!!! Seriously, that font and those little hearts coming out of the chimney – swoon! I love it, Marie! I'm looking forward to seeing some new posts from you soon! And thanks for the PSA about those workout shirts. I'm always looking for new ones to try!
Love your new logo! I'm clicking over to look at the 3/4 sleeve top. Thanks so much for linking up!
Thanks! I just needed some direction. It's so easy to get lost in what everyone else is doing and to mindlessly scroll for hours. Back when I used to blog all the time I felt more in control of things, it's weird to say that, but it's true. It was my therapy and kept me in check. So, I decided to make up a little logo to kind of center myself back to my roots. Our house is yellow and for many years I didn't like it, but it's grown on me. Our little yellow lake house, with my favorite people inside! Oh and girl, that workout shirt is great! I get sad when it's dirty. Hahaha! I hope it works for you if you decide to get it!
Thanks so much! That means a lot! Yes, that top is the bee's knees. Now we just need fall weather. Thanks again for hosting! 🙂
Thanks for stopping by,it's always nice to meet a fellow blogger. I love this link up and always find something to add to my cart. Glad you joined in and your blog design is great!
