Wow! I can’t believe it is June already! 2014 is halfway over. During the dead of winter, it seemed that spring was never going to come, and now it is June. The older I become, the faster time flies. I was so busy that I did not get around to writing a review of April, so today I thought I would do a little combo, and review both April and May! Here is what has been happening around Sweet Parrish Place for the past couple of months.
I partnered up with Zillow to bring you some DIY tips for painting home exteriors.
I updated Miss 18 Year Old’s sink using the Giani Granite kit, and loved the result.
We celebrated my daughter’s 18th birthday! I can’t believe she is all grown up.
I found a couple of new uses for wrapping paper as décor.
I reviewed this fabulous dress for eShakti, and I got to keep the dress!
I gave a tour of my spring living and dining rooms.
I partnered up with The Workbench Life to bring you 11 DIY weekend curb appeal ideas.
I actually increased our home’s curb appeal by painting the handrails in front of our house. I have since added some red geraniums in my planters.
I shared some thrifty and antique finds from a short trip to Ohio Amish Country.
I joined Kendra’s fashion challenge- Miami Style, and created a couple of fashion boards.
I partnered with Fabric Care Solutions to bring you some laundry tips for college kids.
I shared Miss 18 Year Old’s senior prom, so fun!
I shared some graduation party inspiration, as I was planning one of my own!
For Mother’s Day, I partnered with Lifeway Kefir to share my reflections on motherhood.
I brought back a popular post I wrote last spring, my method for a natural looking self tan.
I showed you how you can incorporate Kleenex into your décor with style.
I shared how I finished an unfinished lantern.
I told you about the “supposed” free cruise that we won. NOT!
I shared all of the details of Miss 18 Year Old’s graduation party.
I shared Our Swedish Daughter’s family home back in Sweden.
And last but not least, I participated in What I Wore Wednesday for April 2, April 9, April 23, May 7, May 14, and May 28.
That is a glimpse into Sweet Parrish Place for the past couple of months. Now that Our Swedish Daughter has gone back to Sweden, things are going to be picking up around here. I am going to start some new projects, and be on a more regular blogging schedule. I have slacked off a little with projects in order to host her for the past ten months, so now it is back to work. But my reason for slowing down was a great one, and well worth it. I would not have traded my family's experience for the world. Now that my time is freed up a lot, I hope you will stick around and watch what happens!
