It’s August! Can you believe we are already in the month of August? My dahlias are blooming and I couldn’t be happier!
1) Have you been to the longest yard sale? It runs 690 miles long and the route winds through 6 states; Michigan, Ohio, Kentucky, Tennessee, Georgia, and Alabama. Sadly, I have never been but may try and make a trip this weekend. It sounds like so much fun!
My blogging friend, Robyn from Robyn’s French Nest wrote an amazing blog this week on How to Shop the World’s Longest Yard Sale: 5 Ways. She has given so many great tips for conquering this yard sale.
2) Guess what my new favorite show on Netflix is?
If you love Hallmark movies, you’ll love this! There are currently three seasons and there is also a book series by Robyn Carr.
Take a look for yourself. You’ll thank me later….I promise!
3) Have you ever had anyone you know participate in the Senior Olympics? My mother participated this week at our local Olympics. In amazing news, she took three gold medals, 2 silver and 1st place in the art exhibit!
Not bad for being almost 90!
4) This week on the blog, I told you all about 27 New Amazing Gap Home Decor Items. If you don’t know about this new line at Walmart, check out my post. The products are so well made with an even better price tag.
You’ll be happy you did!
Here are some other WONDERFUL moments, I found this week:
This beautiful boho wedding reception
This fun and creative content calendar
This yummy one skillet chicken recipe
This amazing blog on how to buy the best slipcover
These plants stands for every style
I hope all you enjoyed all my Mitten Moments!
I love that your mom participated in the local senior Olympics! That is so fun! And I just started watching Virgin River, too! Thanks for sharing my chicken recipe – so kind of you. <3
