Fans, I’m very sorry for my absentee-ism with blogging lately. Not only have I been pretty busy, but I’ve discovered another obsession: Game of Thrones. So, with all of my free time, I find myself glued to the TV, unable to multitask and write a gem for you to read. I know you’ve missed me. I’m sorry!
It’s been a crazy couple of weeks. What have we done? Let me tell you!
We went raspberry picking
We picked a whopping 13 lbs of berries (and finished them in one week! A new record!) I’m working on a post all about our picking experience. In the meantime, head on down to Harvold Farms while it’s still raspberry season. Blueberry season also just kicked off, if they are your berry of choice. Our favorite spot to pick blueberries is Bybee Farms in North Bend. It’s worth the drive!
The oven planning has been daunting, so we put it off and opted instead to try out some pizza dough, sauce and topping recipes!
Our pizza gorging re-inspired us and we finished the plans for the wood-fired oven. Next step: ordering the supplies and getting our mortar on. We’ve got to do quite a bit of the work before the weather Seattle is famous for is upon us. So, it’s time to get this show on the road.
I’ve been really busy with my other job: Little Britches Bakery
Something amazing has happened and my side biz, Little Britches Bakery (non-edible baby gifts) has taken off! We had a crazy amount of orders in the past couple of weeks and even did an interview with the Mercer Island Reporter on the royal baby. (Mercer Island = Megan’s Island) I’ll post the article once it’s published, but here’s a sneak peak at the scene. Also? We’re giving away the royal diaper cake “fit for a king.” If this is something you’re interested in, enter to win via the giveaway button on the Little Britches Bakery Facebook page.
We had our house painted
It took Cesar, our painter, 10 hours a day for five days. I’m so, so, so glad that we opted to hire someone to paint it as opposed to taking on that task ourselves. It would’ve taken us so much longer. We did pre-paint each individual piece of siding before it went up but now the house has a final, professional coat. Related, I did have the ‘opportunity’ to paint some siding inside the house. After some very precarious ladder maneuvers, “the inside is outside” theme of our entry way has an updated look. I’m glad I never have to paint siding again (or at least in the near future…)!
Re-did the foyer
More painting! I painted the indoor siding (it’s a unique house) and the door and moved around some furniture that we already had. I have one more project to start and finish and then the new foyer will be ready to share.
Those are the highlights and what a few weeks it’s been! After a ladies weekend in Walla Walla this weekend, I’ll be back to blogging more regularly. Thanks for being a loyal reader and let me know what fun projects you’ve been up to in the comments below!
