  1. This may seem silly but what is a DIY??? :)

  2. I love the new look of your blog! Sounds like a fantastic summer :)

    1. Thanks, Faith! This was the first step to making sure December gets here quickly. ;) I can't wait to see what both our summers hold! :)

  3. Ah, I gotcha! I'll remember that one! I'm doing a whole bunch of DIY's now that Andy is gone for two weeks. :) Sometimes I'm not real sure I like DIY's. :)

    1. I'm definitely not fond of them, which I why I only have to complete one. ;) It won't be very elaborate, that's for sure! Your DIY's are a lot more detailed than mine, and the ones I've seen are beautiful. You do such a good job!! :)

  4. Ahh I just love summertime:)

  5. A nice list!!! Love the idea of only reading the books outside! Never would have thought of that! :) I love the Hermitage! It was so beautiful when I went there last year with Patrick and Hannah. :)

    DIY!!! Love love love those. You don't? If I didn't have college you'd see DIY's on my blog all the times. I have a whole bag full of clothes wanting to be refashioned, two furniture pieces needing paints, a swim nudle needing to be turned into a wreath....the list goes on. *sigh*

    Oh, Like your new blog layout! :)


    1. Thank you, Iris! If I didn't limit myself to reading books outside this summer I'd be in the house for hours on end. :P

      The Hermitage IS beautiful! I've been there a few times, and I've enjoyed every trip. I'd really like to visit one of the other estates because I've recently read about them in depth, but we'll see. :)

      I'm not sure what it is with me and DIY's. I like the idea, and I like saving money, but I get into them and get frustrated when it takes longer than I anticipated. I love reading about other peoples DIY projects though. :)
