It’s been a whirlwind week with Hannah and Michelle out of town at a conference for work and Robin living the single life while Tai and Charlie are traveling. We’re looking forward to taking a breath this weekend! Here are the And Then We Tried obsessions for the week.
After stumbling on these adorable mini pennants from Three Potato Four, I was stoked about the possibility to give my plants a boost of personality. But as with all our other DIY projects—wood bead candle holder, Michelle’s reclaimed pallet cow, etc—I knew I could easily make these myself. Follow along for this super simple DIY that anyone—even kids—can do in less than an hour. Call that an accomplished afternoon.
All I do is think about fences. It’s official. Last year, I moved the fence behind my garage five feet back and we used an auger to dig holes for the posts. That job was so terrible, I still have nightmares about cutting through several feet of bricks and clay. So when it came time to finish installing the fence along my driveway, I knew I was going to do everything I could to convert my chainlink fence to a wood fence and use the existing chainlink steel posts.Keep Reading
It’s Robin’s turn to leave the country this week, leaving Hannah and Michelle behind and (unfortunately) sick. Check out what we’ve been obsessing over in this week’s And Then We Tried Obsessions.
Just as Michelle is getting back from her trip to Belgium and Amsterdam, I’m headed out to Spain and Portugal for the week. After checking in on her packing list, I’m off to settle up my own overpacking for the slightly warmer—though still rainy—climate. Follow along for my packing list for Spain and Portugal. Fingers crossed it all fits in the bag!
Blogging can be an isolated business. Michelle, Robin, and I are lucky to have each other to work with, but many other sites are one-woman operations. One of the strongest tools a blogger can have in her arsenal is a strong community to work with. This weekend, I got to tap into that community at a Cleveland blogger meetup.Keep Reading
Turns out all of us had a very murder-y week. Read on to find out what we’re talking about and the rest of this week’s And Then We Tried Obsessions.
I just got back from a week in Belgium and Amsterdam and as per usual, I overpacked. It was pretty warm in Cleveland when I left so I completely forgot how to dress for the fall weather, let alone rainy fall weather. Keep Reading
Movies have a way of setting the tone and I always like to kick off the fall season with movies that get me ready for chilly mornings, changing leaves, and sweaters. Over the years I’ve compiled quite the list of movies that feel particularly like fall. Here’s what’s on my fall movie list.Keep Reading
Michelle is bopping around Belgium this week, Hannah is hooked on a new show, and Robin can’t get enough color. This is this week’s edition of And Then We Tried Obsessions.
