Planting Sequoias

In which I blog about a life (hopefully) well lived.

July 2013 Bloggy Recap (in which we resume “normal” life after the bar exam)

Leave a comment

Friends, it’s August. Cue the collective mourning and grousing about back-to-school sales. Last year was fine since we GOT MARRIED August 11, so that was a nice distraction. This year? Well, I’ll just have to let Kenny entertain me. We have a pretty great first anniversary camping trip planned to, so I guess that’s fun.

Still. Summer went altogether too fast. But July was a pretty fun month on the blog, so if you want to catch up and reminisce with me, let’s dive in.

Personal…Just For Fun:

Insta-Trade Show (in which Anne travels for work and instagrams it all)

Friday Flashback: Quilts (in which I write about winter stuff in the heat of July)

rustic barn wood sign 1 john 4:19

Crafts (or, rather, “craft):

Painted Barn Wood Sign (in which I nearly start My Own Business but then I think it through)

Oil painting gallery wall

Home Decor:

Framed Hanging Card (in which I compose and share a completely useless tutorial)

Mint and Coral Gallery Wall (in which I redo something for the 27th time…surprise)

Fantastic Finds (in which I increase our fancy art collection by almost 50%)

Polish Brass with Ketchup (in which playing with food actually has a purpose)

House Tour: Moody and Classic (in which I embarrass my photographer self further by sharing blurry photos)

New Lease, New Gallery Wall (in which I add another hundred nail holes to our already riddled walls)

Lake House Tour (in which I am wooed by rippling waves and beachy decor)


Kraft Jet-Puffed Strawberry Marshmallows

And Finally, a Recipe (or two):

Disgusting-Looking Baba Ganoush (in which I successfully wrangle some slimy eggplant into the realm of edibility)

What Does One Do with Strawberry-Flavored Marshmallows? (in which I present: a review)

And in other, not-blogged news, KENNY TOOK THE BAR EXAM. Now perhaps, hopefully, we can resume normal lives! Not that either of us really know what that entails, but we’re excited to find out. The sad thing is that he won’t find out results until October or November. Grrrrr.

Can’t get enough? I thought so. Check out these old recaps: JanuaryFebruaryMarchApril, May, and June.
