Lovely Look Book: My Little Black Dress

The Lovely Lookbook Button 

Today I'm linking up with Caitlin and Sarah for a new, fun monthly link up called The Lovely Lookbook.  The goal of the link up is to find looks that work for you. It's for women of all shapes and sizes to share a look and hopefully inspire others. This month's focus is on dresses. Today I'm sharing two different ways I've styled my little black dress. I feel both are a little unexpected, and I think that's even more fun!

High Five for Friday 8.29

Happy Friday!  Anyone else thrilled for the three day weekend ahead?!  I AM!!!  Here are some highlights from this past week


We had quite the eventful Saturday!  My parents were coming to visit to help us paint the house/garage.  We'd had a terrible storm the night before and woke up to at least two feet of water in our basement.  Our basement is truly an old cellar, so we don't have anything down there, but the heater/ac unit is there, so that's what I was most concerned about.  My dad and Russ got the water pumped out, Praise the Lord!  Mom, Russ, the boys, and I went to the town festival parade while my dad supervised the basement drainage. It was such a blessing that my parents were already on their way when we discovered the water. 

Also, we did have time to work on the garage and it is a few brushstrokes from being finished!  Then, on to painting the house this weekend!

Tutorial: DIY Clock with Darby Smart

July's Darby Smart was a fun one.  We truly only have one clock in our house that is not digital, so it was fun making this one. I'm not sure if I'll stick it in our bedroom or find another fun place to put it. This month, I decided to mix it up a little and use something outside of the subscription box to add to the project.
