As you can see this basket is full of gifts from wonderful friends. These were all given as either swap boxes or as Acts of Kindness, Happy Un-Birthdays or Friendship Boxes. During the school year I can only melt on evenings or weekends. Now that I am home I really get to go through my stash much faster. If you are curious about any of these scents and would like a melted review, please let me know in the comments. I will review it just for you.

I picked up two puzzles at the Dollar Tree and surprisingly, Adam pieced most of this first one together. The girls and I helped with bits. This candy one is done and boxed away while the second one sits at the table ready to go. 

I have been derelict in my photo taking and cannot locate my "before" pictures of our bathrooms' old linoleum. But here is the guest bathroom with her brand new tile! Nothing flashy but I enjoy all the color variations and textures. Adam and I had a not so fun marriage moment at the Floor & Decor store trying to pick, stay in budget and make everyone happy. But ultimately, in the end we both came out feeling good about it. 

The master bathroom. Bad time of day to take a photo but ah well. You get the idea. 

The summer is sweeping by. The girls have Vacation Bible School next week and I know they are looking forward to it. A little structure, a lot of fun and friends to sing and dance with while mama bear catches up on things around the house. What are your plans this week?


  1. I love the floors Julie! Your bathrooms are perfectly clean and clutter free - I love it! And that window light from your master bath --so great.
    We love puzzles too. It's so addicting.
    Love the plumeria pic!

    1. Thank you Sunnee! It feels so good to finally be able to do these upgrades a little at a time after ten years of living here. The puzzles have been surprisingly fun to do! Calming. And yes, addicting!

      I am struggling to find the light with this lens still. I find I end up shooting in a high ISO, creating noise. But I figured it would take me a while to learn it.

  2. That plumeria is gorgeous!!!!! And your floors look fantastic. I hope your girls enjoy their time at VBS and you get some rest along with some "catching up with stuff" time. :)

    1. Thank you Nancy! It was a looooong time coming! My plumeria tree has been growing wonderfully! I can handle my chronic plant neglect. I hope you have a great week Nancy!!!

  3. You ended up picking gorgeous tile! It really compliments the bathroom. Plumerias! <3

    Review LCP, CBV and Lasting Scent Candles- Spring Mountain Mint, if you please!
