Watermelon Cucumber Cooler via Homespun with Love

You guys, it's not quite August and already I feel summer is coming to an end. Sad. The television is showing back-to-school ads non-stop and while the boys don't go back to school for three more weeks, I am starting to see first day of school posts popping up in my Instagram feed! Where did it go? Truthfully, I am looking forward to the routine that comes with a more regular schedule. We've got some fun things planned and I can't wait to share them with you. In the meantime, I thought we could all hang on to summer a little bit longer with a handful of the great summertime ideas that … [Read more...]

You guys, time flies. It really does. I don't know if it's the addition of kids in my life, or age, but the days seem to slip away faster than ever. I can hardly believe that we're already mid-way through July...Back-to-school is really right around the corner and I can't decide if that makes me happy, or if I want to cry.

Dudes. Today I am giving myself a big fat #FAIL! Seriously. I am working on a wonderful post for next week celebrating my favorite food in the world...DONUTS. I make donuts all the time and have never had a problem, but today I am crying into my mixing bowl because I have ruined two batches!!! How does someone manage to ruin two batches of donuts you ask? Well, it's a whole lotta not paying attention apparently. You all have such lovely photos every single week. Please tell me that you occasionally have a craft (or in this case baking) fail of your own. I need to commiserate with … [Read more...]

Remember when I told you the air conditioning was broken in my house? Yeah. Well, the air conditioning is still broken in my house. Sigh...I would likely be more concerned about it, but fortunately the weather has taken a turn. It was in the 50's today - there was snow in parts of Utah! Fickle, fickle weather. Between the heat and the rain, I haven't gotten some of the DIY projects done that I would have liked to. Fortunately, you've all been keeping busy and I have some fun upcycled furniture shares for you today!   Show + Tell Highlights You're not going to believe what … [Read more...]
