Week of Aug 20

Have you all been enjoying your weekend? We had a great time working on a birthday project for little Eliza, who turns two in just a couple weeks. We are building her a dollhouse using Young House Love’s version they built for their little 2 year old. Eliza is going to absolutely love it! It’s pretty awesome to build something with your hands for less than buying it and have it look professional. (It’s no secret I love John and Sherry and think their ideas are so fun so of course I would praise their dollhouse).

I know you are all tingling with expectations of what the menu will be for this week, (if you haven’t already peeked at the calendar), so here it is:
