Let’s Have Fun and Enjoy Sunday Morning Coffee

I have a very important goal this week and it is to have fun! You might know I have a big announcement tomorrow and I am so beyond excited to share it with you!

I leave for Atlanta on Wednesday and then I am meeting my family in Atlanta on Sunday and we are going to spend a very fun week on vacation! I am so happy that I get to spend a week with my boys and my brother’s family. We are going to have fun all week!

Sunday Morning Coffee

About Me – The Big Announcement is Tomorrow!

Summer Fun Outdoor Party

I am usually pretty good at keeping secrets.

But sometimes you work on something that comes from the heart and takes so much out of you that you just want to get on top of a building and scream about it to everyone.

Finally, I get to do that tomorrow.

No, I won’t be screaming on top of a building.

Although I could get up on our roof. Ok, maybe not.

But I will be sharing my big announcement here, on all of my social media, and pretty much everywhere else you can find me.

I cannot wait. Because we are going to have some fun!

Something New

Haven Conference

I am so excited to attend my fifth Haven Conference next week! Haven is a bloggers conference and it’s my favorite conference all year! I know it isn’t new (since it’s my fifth!) but this year I am a mentor and I am speaking to the group about a very important topic, How to Make Money as an Influencer. (It will be on Saturday at 2:45 pm so come join me.)

If you are planning on attending, please come find me as I would love to meet you!

My Favorite Room This Week

The Transformation of Our Third Floor Apartmenr

We are back up on the 3rd floor!

Which, in case you didn’t know, is the worldwide headquarters of My 100 Year Old Home.

About a year ago I figured out that having an office for three people on the third floor, instead of in our family room, kept my work away from my everyday life.

I know you are probably laughing at this point because in truth, how would I possibly keep the main floor of our home away from my everyday life? Especially since it’s the focus of most of my blog anyway?

There is something about “going to work” that creates a separation between home and the office, even if it is only two flights of stairs away!

Regardless, we are back on the third floor, working together, and

Besides, I am so much more productive up here!

My 100 Year Old Home Offices

Just for fun, I thought it might be fun to share some before and remodel photos of the third floor. When we first bought our house from Dave’s parents, the third floor was truly an attic playroom. Ten years later, we decided to remodel the third floor by gutting the whole thing, removing the ceiling, adding a bathroom, and “modernizing” it! It’s a great guest suite or a Worldwide Headquarters!

After having experienced this first hand, I had to share this. Airport Meltdowns: Tips if You’re Headed to Europe This Summer.

A Beautiful Mess shared How to Paint Plastic and Make it Last.

KariAnne at Thistlewood shared How to DIY Plater Walls with Drywall Mud.

Brown is definitly a colr that gets a bad wrap. SF Girl shared a great post titled Color Story – Not So Boring Brown.


Last week was crazy! We spent a lot of time with Amazon Prime week but also shared homemade popsicles, dinners on the beach, a very fun DIY fresh succulent wreath, and my obsession with sea glass.



Some of the most popular items from Prime Day last week! Some of the items are still on sale!


Oh, what a week this is going to be! As you certainly know by now I have a big announcement to make tomorrow. Plus I am going to be sharing some fun iced tea recipes, a beach house update, a fun group blog about outdoor decorating, my favorite marshmallow s’mores recipe, and some tips for planning a rehearsal dinner. How does that sound?

  1. Hi Leslie,
    Today was a fun blog to read. Hope you enjoy yourself in Atlanta and then with your family. I was admiring at the beginning of the post the “charger” or is it a place mat, not sure. It was the floral base made out of maybe ceramic. Where did you get that lovely piece? It’s gorgeous. Cindy 🙂

  2. You are – as always- amazing. Can’t wait to see what your announcement is. Have a blast at Haven- wish I could be there. Enjoy your well deserved vacation. xx

  3. Hi Leslie,

    Whatever you are planning is sure to be fantastic!
    I absolutely love your third floor apartment, it is gorgeous. Have you thought about making a top for your billiard table? I would be terrified off damaging the top!
    Have a wonderful week
    Cheers
    Heather

  4. I can’t wait until tomorrow for your ‘ surprise ‘
    The house looks amazing, I’m a white fan and also the more special things around make me happy! Love the third floor
