BOTB 5.22.15

By Kate Riley May 22, 2015

This past week totally kicked my butt – the travel back and forth to Las Vegas and supervision of subcontractors, the kids’ semi-final and final baseball/softball games, and the Warriors in the NBA playoffs all demanded my attention. Have I shared that I started taking fitness kickboxing classes in the a.m.? That’s when it’s my turn to kick butt :) The classes are so fun but depleting, it’s all left me needing rest, thankfully it’s Memorial Day Weekend, three days that I’ll be doing just that.

Here’s the roundup of inspiring posts and projects from around the blogosphere in the continuing series, enjoy!

  1. What an adorable shared kids room! I have 15 month old twins, and need (well, want!) to start thinking about their (shared) toddler room. I definitely don’t want to separate my girls into different rooms, so shared room it is. They have a small room so I will likely go with a smaller frame bed as well!! Happy Memorial Day weekend!

  2. Thank you for featuring my wine stakes, Kate! I wish we could have a glass and enjoy them together this weekend :) Have a great Memorial Day. Cheers!

  3. Kate, thank you for mentioning Bohca Bazaar a few posts ago. I visited this delightful store today and was impressed with the variety and the quality of Julie’s items. This place is truly a treasure.
