I'm alive and a sneak peek :)

Yup, I'm guilty, GUILTY of pretty much abandoning this blog for a few months!  Not only was I busy setting up house here on the new home-front.  But Blogger has been making me crazy for months as well.  Is anyone else having the commenting problem?   I try to comment on blogs, it makes me sign in, I see my dashboard, go to comment again and it makes me "anonymous"  Can you say FRUSTRATING?

 Anyway, it's been a very busy and fun summer here!  We have had our favorite Southerners here already.  Just wouldn't be summer without them. :) Then we had summer camp, horse camp and a few more activities to go.  A day trip here and there

Note * before front door was stained....

We also landscaped.... however,  that deserves a post of its own!!!  When I say "we" I mean, John and I, no other help.  Luckily we work well together!

I have been decorating and feathering our new nest.  I'm the type of person that I can only do these things while I'm feeling creative.  I simply cannot force it.  I'm all or nothing.  

So here is a sneak peek of the keeping room, which is right off the kitchen.  This room has functioned like I imagined it would, I can't tell you how that makes me SO HAPPY!  

I have learned this.........

It's hanging in my kitchen and it is so very true!

I promise to NOT go as long inbetween posts, promise!!! pinky swear!!!!

I've been having problems posting too. I've had to sign in each time I make a comment, most of the time. The trick is to uncheck the box when it asks you to log in...that way it won't show up anonymous.
Your living room looks yummy! I love that chair and copper pot. I'm looking forward to seeing more!

Im a fairly "new" follower.

Gorgeous, I love that room and I love your color schemes. I had that problem with blogger a while back and the solution was to clear my browser's cache. Then here's the big thing that I've heard over and over. Go to your login page and unclick the box that keeps you signed in. Do this after you clear your cache. For some reason blogger had some kind of problem with this affecting several of us. Mine's been fine ever since doing that. Knock on wood!

Blogger is making me crazy too...I have all but given up on commenting!!! I am not even sure I am going to be able to get this one through!

I have been dying to see more of your gorgeous new home...this little sneak peek is gorgeous!!! I will be checking back to see more!

So happy to see what you have been up too. Your kiddos are precious!

Thank you for visiting me and leaving comments!
My labels I ordered from another blogger. Shelly from House of Smiths, I'm not sure if her shop is still open. I'm sure you can find something similar off Etsy!

Kristi, I was just thinking about some blog friends that haven't been around in a while. I was so excited when you were sharing the building process of your new home and was looking forward to you sharing it completed with us. I do wish you would share it. That teaser room is killing me!!

Please come back!
