Update + Some Around the House Decorations

Hi everyone!

How are you?! I know I've disappeared without any real explanation for a few weeks now. Things here were a little crazy, and I had to put away the computer + kindle fire + iphone for a little bit. Basically, anything that could get me on google had to be limited.

Let me explain why.

I had a little medical scare this summer. Not the whole fainting in church-wearing heart monitors for a ridiculously long time-finding out everything is okay scare. Another one. Its been a fun summer. (Actually, despite all this, it has been a fun summer!)

In a nut shell, I had to have a biopsy done on a tiny little lump. Fortunately, the results came back benign. Unfortunately, the tiny little lump still needs to be removed completely just to be sure its all okay. Which is actual real surgery. On Friday.

And that's why I needed to be away from google. As soon as I found out what type of lump it was, I started googling everything I could think of. I'd try to write a blog post, or answer emails, or go to bloglovin, and the next thing I knew, I'd have 85 tabs open about this instead. And I was driving myself crazy. So I just took a break from the internet all together.

And it helped.

But I missed all my blogging friends. So I've been on the internet for 17 minutes now, and not one thing has been googled, so I think I'm good to go! Right?!

While I was taking my internet break, I did a whole bunch of other things to keep myself busy though.

hanging out in New York | finally finishing our bar area with a picture collage and large mirror | making a set of shelves for the foyer | changing up the mantle from 4th of July to summer | wine tasting | seeing the Brooklyn Cyclones for the first time | {not pictured} remembering my snap.scrap.share post for Julie (although it took me over an hour longer to write than it should have thanks to google...)

Okay, I'm off to go clean up the house while I've got this great burst of energy, since that kind of didn't happen during my internet break either ;)

I'll be back on Friday with a Project Life layout and then next week I will resume my Tuesday layout + Friday Project Life + random projects and things from around the house when I have them to share on Wednesday schedule!

Yay!
