The past few months have been crazy busy for Jesse and I, so I took an unannounced step-back from blogging. Basically, I cut WAY back on posting and sometimes skipped a week or so all together. And it was nice, but I missed the projects and the crafting and the therapy of sitting down with a glass of wine and typing out a post. Now that I’m settling in to a new routine and the holidays are approaching my crafting and project mojo is back. September was a little taste of me getting back into the groove, but I’m really excited for what October has in store. I’ve got some Halloween projects up my sleeve, not to mention getting back to the bathroom, and a few other things around the house. But before I get too ahead of myself, let’s take a look at what I managed to accomplish in September.
The folks at HomeRight were so kind and sent me a paint sprayer to help with projects around the house. I’ve already used it on our kitchen chairs, and I have plans to use it on some cabinet doors and our pantry shelves in the very near future!
When I’m feeling under the weather Jesse usually cooks for me, ok he usually cooks for me all the time, but I get to request favorites when I’m sick. One of my absolute favorites is his French-style Ragu. It’s full of vegetables and sausage and just hits the spot when I feel gross.
This month I was also nominated by Kelly of Corner of Main to participate in the Tour Through Blogland. If you’re new to the blog that post would be an excellent place to get a feel for me, my house, my style and the blog itself.
September of course means the start of fall, so I pulled out my fall decorations and put together a few vignettes. I usually replace my fall decor with Halloween stuff in October and then pull the fall stuff back out again in November.
It took a few weeks after starting on my dining room chairs, using my HomeRight Finish Max sprayer, before I actually finished them and set them up for pictures. I took a pretty large step out of my comfort zone and color-blocked the legs of the chairs, but I’m so glad I did! I love the fresh look and the way they compliment my spring green walls.
I also did a little Throwback Thursday (#tbt) and reposted a newer and improved recipe for my Pumpkin Spice Chocolate Chip cookies. These cookies and so dang good and have a very cakey texture, almost like a muffin top/cookie hybrid.
September was all about getting my groove back, and I’m ready to kick October’s butt! In addition to getting stuff done around the house and on the blog, I’m also going to a fun blogger event hosted by my pal Cassie and her shop, Sweet Clover, this Saturday. Can’t wait!
How was your September? Did you recharge from the summer? I don’t know what it is about fall, but it really does bring a fresh perspective to things!
