Happy Labor Day! I had intended to take today off, but then I thought it would be fun to do a little recap of August. I’ve really never done monthly recaps here on IBC, so if you hate them, let me know. I just figured I could catch you up on anything you missed during the month. Plus, it’s a way for me to look back on the things I’ve accomplished recently. I don’t know about you, but time seems to be passing so quickly. Often, I feel like I’ve done nothing. Stopping to reflect on what’s been happening is probably a good thing. Right?
Around the house, I managed to start and complete a few projects. I finally got my barn doors painted, hung a chair in my office, and made some progress in my guest room including hanging curtains. I also wrapped things up with my living room gallery wall and finally decided on curtains for my bedroom! Woot. Woot. In addition, I began my basement stairwell transformation. I’ll be sharing the completed paint job with you on Wednesday.
In the kitchen, I whipped up some delicious goodness. I started off with these Bacon Wrapped Jalapeño Peppers, then moved on to Buffalo Chicken Zucchini Boats. For dessert I continued A Year of Pie with these adorable Berry Cup Pies. Then, to finish off the month, I made one of my new favorite desserts – this Chocolate-Peanut Butter Cake. Finally, to wash everything down, I threw in an early taste of fall with this Caramel Apple Martini.
And that wraps up August! What was your favorite post of the month? What do you want to see more of? Let me know in the comments.
Hope you all had a fun and fabulous long weekend.
