  1. I’ve been a woman on a mission this week: writing content, updating posts, scheduling posts and Pinterest and IG before we leave tomorrow morning for Vancouver and our cruise to Alaska. We’ll be gone for two weeks, so the more I can get done before we leave, the more I can enjoy our vacation.
  2. In big news, I joined Hometalk last week. I’m so excited to finally be a part of this forum for home decor, DIY, and food ideas. I already have comments and followers. Do you search for inspiration on Hometalk? I hope so. I would be so appreciative if you would visit Hometalk and follow my account.
  3. One more Hometalk thing. This Thursday, I had my first feature (after only one week on the platform!). You can see the project Hometalk chose to feature.
  4. Do you know what I bought for our cruise? Jeans and new sneakers. I bought 4 new pairs of jeans at Talbots in light denim, dark denim, black, and sky blue. I bet I haven’t bought a new pair of jeans (except for white) in 10 years. After losing 20 pounds in the last six months, nothing fit. It feels so good to go down a full size. I love the fit and style of these jeans. My kids gave me these super comfortable pink walking shoes and I ordered this pair of black sneakers. Now all I have to do is pack.
  5. Speaking of packing and traveling: to keep Sweet Shark happy by not blogging during this bucket~list vacation with our entire family and so I can truly give my attention to our kids and grandkids and the amazing experience, I have a great 10 Fabulous Finds for you next week, but I’ll be taking a break the following week. Bon Voyage!!
  6. This week on the blog was all about The Best Father’s Day Cake Recipe and Best Outdoor Living Styling Ideas for Summer.

7. I love making banners for holidays and events. This darling summer banner is made with wood banners, which I’ve used before, cardstock, and your Cricut or cut~out letters.

8. I had to include one of the easiest and cheapest summer DIY projects I have ever made. Make a trip to Dollar Tree, gather whatever summer stuff you like and use it to make a wreath.

9. I was excited when I saw this project. Why? Because I have a straw hat like this that I bought at Dollar Tree a couple of years ago. I can’t remember why, but now I know ~ so I would make this colorful DIY rainbow embroidered hat. I may even have some embroidery floss.

This week I started reading The Lincoln Highway by Amor Towles, the author of A Gentleman from Moscow (I reviewed it a few weeks ago. It will be my travel book. ( I am taking another couple of chick~lit paperbacks with me.)
