It's T minus 3 days (what does that "T minus" thing mean anyway?) till our annual beach vacation with The Hubster's family. So what am I doing? Hitting Sam's Club for the gallon size bucket of sunscreen? Going to Blockbuster to rent enough movies so we survive the drive?
Nope. I'm browsing through last summer's posts and feeling a bit nostalgic. This time last summer, I was doing cartwheels because our house finally sold! Then I had two weeks to jam our entire lives into moving boxes. In the process, I found a boatload of treasures...and discovered that I may become a toothpaste hoarding old lady.
While packing, I had a mini-breakdown.
At that same time, we went on our annual beach vacation. Of course, I had to share some of the beach decor from the house we rent. Some variation of our family has rented this same vacation house for the last 16 years. I fully expect some relative to now tell me that it's actually been 15 or 17 years.
Is it pathetic that I'm completely excited that our 1-week-a-year beach house has been redecorated? I'll be sharing pictures.
In the midst of all the house-building, packing, moving and vacation mayhem, I kept making things like this star fish garland. And this sand dollar garland.
Finally, in an attempt to prove that I had lost my mind, I was painting a chair as the moving men were coming for our stuff. I was really hanging on by a thread at that point.
Don't forget! Tomorrow is DIY Day on ASTPL! You can still see last week's party here. Make sure you have those project posts ready to link up! MckLinky will go up around 11:00 tonight. Or earlier, if I'm sleepy and want to go to bed. You can grab your button now, if you want it.
Last chance to get your Peony Pins at a great price. They're almost gone and I'll be taking down the post soon.
