Sam was out of town for work for most of July, but I stayed pretty busy.
My mom and I
On the 13th, the ladies at my mom's church threw us a shower.

The decorations were really beautiful!
We finally got around to hanging the artwork that we bought on our honeymoon. We purchased watercolors in Venice (read Part One here and Part Two here) and Mykonos
I also started scrapbooking our honeymoon. I'm using the Project Life system.
Finn spent lots of time with his Grammie (my mom). In the photo above he's trying to look pitiful so my mom will give him some brisket. In the photo below he's getting belly rubs.
We had some unseasonably cool weather, so Finn and I spent some time outside on the porch.
I finally got around to adding photos in my locket - my two loves - Sam and Finn.
After two weeks of Sam being gone, I started going stir crazy and cleaned everything in the house. I vacuumed the utility closet, hot water heater, and air vents, dusted the base boards, sprinkled the mattress with baking soda, vacuumed the mattress, washed the dishwasher, used the Magic Eraser on the walls, wiped out the fridge, washed the rugs, cleaned and sanitized the sink and garbage disposal, cleaned the oven, replaced the air filter and scrubbed the tile grout. I've now tried just about cleaning tip on Pinterest!
