Patriotic Wreath Idea


Happy Saturday!

The Colorado Avalanche won. I love the post-game interviews because it reminds all of us to never give up and to do the work to get the results we want. It is also a reminder to wear a mouth guard.

My sister already found this dress for our daughter’s wedding in 2023.

Everything is on sale at Pottery Barn including this cozy, sherpa pom-pom blanket. I have it in red.

Speaking of Sherpa, I ordered these Jack Rogers boots (for fall/winter weather). Comfy. Read reviews for sizing. And while I was on their site I found these! On sale!!

This vintage-inspired bathroom mirror is on sale! If you have a dated bathroom a little paint and this mirror will bring it into 2022! #realtorlife

I signed up for this bucket list item. My son’s university hosts this event. I plan to text him to meet for coffee in between classes! :0)

The same son texted m for a fun fact about him. It was for an internship mixer. But it was a great reminder to create a fun facts list about someone in your life and share it with them.

  • 3-time state tennis champion
  • never been stung by a bee
  • hates buttons

My husband’s fun fact? He caddied for Leslie Nielsen from Caddy Shack & Airplane.

This is the list I texted to Evan off the top of my mind!

It was easier than relaying a Chick-Fil-A order in the drive-thru for a car full of kids and a husband.


  • Taking book suggestions! I am on a waitlist for The Golden Couple & Nightingale.
  • I shared a favorite no-bake cookie recipe. The boiling time is
  • Do you recognize this wreath from Homegoods/ Marshalls? I change the ribbon every season! It is a decor staple at my house! The door paint color is Kendall Charcoal.
  • Decorate with red, white and blue under $15.00

  1. Happy 4th weekend, Laura! I just finished an astounding book called, “A Woman of No Importance” by Sonia Purnell. Turns out that she was a young American woman of incredible importance in the WWII French resistance. It reads like spy fiction but it is true. I will look up the ones you mentioned, too, and will try those yogurt bars this weekend. Enjoy!

  2. Laura,
    I shopped last season for a new pair of booties (sherpa boots) and couldn’t find a pair right for me. I’ve now found a pair, thanks to you. I’ve never been to the Jack Rogers site before. Happy shopping to me.
    Have a fun and safe 4th of July!
