I think I’m going to write a post about how the Olympics changed my life.
I’ve been watching every minute of the Olympic trials and how hard the athletes have worked and the determination and heart and strength that goes into a race and sometimes only a tenth of a second stands between you and a gold medal.
And they’ve inspired me to take on some difficult races of my own.
Like the see if you can empty the dishwasher in under two minute race.
Or the collect all the dirty towels in the house and put them in the washer in under 47 seconds race.
Or the find the stinky sock steeple chase. You know. The one where you leap couches and step on rugs and flip over pillows on your road to victory.
I’ll let you know if I make it to the medal ceremony. 🙂
In the favorite new blog department, I found this amazing, creative, house tour.
I love her style.
Farmhouse sprinkled with more farmhouse.
And she’s giving away the cutest blue ticking apron. You can enter here.
Love this front porch.
It makes me think of sweet tea.
I love a renovation story.
Especially when it has a Wizard of Oz reference.
Beautiful reminder about imperfection.
And that perfect is so over rated.
And in random news this week:
