Weekend Reading

By Kate Riley July 18, 2014

Hello friends! This is the summer of back and forth and here we go again back to the desert to work on the fixer house. More popcorn ceilings to eliminate and walls to paint. Also new flooring going in once we demo the existing, I’ll have more to share next week. Our daughter is playing a role in a summer production of Grease this weekend, yes I will be quietly singing along to “Summer Lovin” and “Grease Lightning” in the dark audience… can’t help it!



Favorite links from the week! 

Don’t miss this dreamy home tour.

Such a clever way to update polished brass.

Which comes first: tile flooring or cabinets.

Board games —-> smarter kids.

Loving Weird Al’s videos this week especially Word Crimes 

10 social apps every parent should know about (whoa)

Must have these metallic temporary tattoos.

I just love a backyard garden wedding.

These summer treats look so delicious.


Have a fantastic weekend everyone !



  1. Thank you for sharing our post about the social media app parents should know about. It’s mind-blowing, right? Thanks for helping to get the word out.

  2. Always love these links – this week especially the backyard wedding. We had our own backyard wedding in my in-law’s yard 28 years ago this week. Ours was not nearly as pretty and well-planned as this one, but it brings back good memories. And its an economical and beautiful option for a summer wedding!

    • My parents had a backyard wedding too Melodie, I LOVE the pictures, so intimate and surrounded by beautiful botanicals!
