Sometimes I think the answers to all of life’s questions are online. Here is a roundup of how I have been using the internet recently. From teaching babies to swim, to home decor, to Downton Abbey…it is all there!
*Summer is upon us, and it is HOT in Atlanta! We have spent a few afternoons beating the heat at some local pools. I have wondered how best to introduce Eli to the water. I ran across this mom’s blog about teaching babies to swim. While it seems a little scary, I think her methods might be worth a try.
*I could also use some help decorating my house. I have been having so much fun perusing design blogs like Young House Love. I have read this blog for quite some time now, and might actually start to use some of their ideas. I have more recently discovered the Pretty Handy Girl. I wish I had known she was in the Atlanta area! I love that her projects are a little more involved. I am a ‘handy girl’ myself so I love that she is willing to do some projects that require more than just a glue gun. I really want to make some ladder display shelves for my bathroom.
*I need to brush up on my painting skills. My new house could use some touching up, especially in the baseboard and trim areas. This youtube video has some good tips!
*I know we are late to the party, but my husband and I ran across and episode of Downton Abbey last night. I saw all kinds of links on FB about Downton Abbey a couple months ago. I don’t know what season or episode we were watching but it caught our interest. Now I see what all they hype was about!
