Friday Excitement

Friday, June 6, 2014

Happy Friday!! This has been a week of ups and downs, excitement and stress, late nights and early mornings! So since it's been so crazy, I thought a five on Friday was in order to share some of the excitement and happenings as of late!

Thank you to everyone for their supportive comments, emails, texts, and good thoughts . . . we are officially Sale Pending!!! Now we obviously still have to go through the process of the inspection and appraisal and the buyer actually signing the papers and closing, but it feels so good to have a buyer and to have settled on a sale! Keep your fingers crossed for smooth sailing the rest of the way through the process and on to the fun part of all the new home design decisions!

I was all over blogland this week with a giveaway, hanging at Morgan's, and spending some time at Meagan's. If you haven't entered the giveaway or checked out those two fabulous ladies' blogs, you definitely should! (after you finish reading this post of course :))

Don't assume I'm done showing up all over your news feed though, cause this girl is holding the blog baton on Monday! If you don't follow it already, you definitely should! It's a great way to find new bloggers to follow and a fun way to see snoop a little more into your favorite blogger's lives!

I've almost been around this little blog for an entire year now! The time has flown by! But in order to celebrate that milestone, I'd love to put together a giveaway with different blogging resources that have helped me throughout the year and that are a staple in my blogging routine. I'd love to have some fellow bloggers join me in the giveaway, so if you're interested shoot me an email or leave me a comment below!

It's berry season here in Oregon so it's time to start picking, freezing, baking, and canning! Strawberries, raspberries, marionbarries, blackberries . . . really any kind of berry will work in my book (or kitchen). Be ready for lots of yummy seasonal recipes and diy posts for canning and preserving!

I hope everyone had a great week & can enjoy some sun and relaxation time this weekend! What fun plans do you have for the weekend?
