It's A Wrap: Summer To Do List

After the baby was born I had three summer projects: set up our new home, get my hair done, and update my wardrobe.
Summer Projects
When we moved in May, I set few goals in regards to unpacking. We'd lived in our other place for almost three years and only when we needed a nursery did we actively start unpacking the office/nursery; we moved with three boxes unopened from our previous moves. My only goal was to complete a room each month. In May, I unpacked and set up the kitchen. In June, I'd planned to finish the nursery. This went awry when I discovered I needed to apply each branch and leaf individually (so no Around the Home post this month). I'd thought the application would be similar to that of the grass, a single transfer for multiple blades. Unfortunately, not enough transfer film was shipped. At the moment, I've completed affixing two of the three branches to the wall and half the leaves for one of the remaining two branches.
Before we left for Priceless, I was able to get a last minute appointment at Code Salon with John for my color. Better luck was that they were open on the Fourth of July and that Louise had an opening.
As I was going back to work after the Fourth, I needed to get some new clothes, specifically jeans. With summer in The Mission and Priceless, summer clothes were the priority. Coming back from each visit to the salon, I stopped by the mall and replenished my wardrobe at Old Navy (shorts and casual pants), Madewell (shorts and cute tees), and Club Monaco (cute tees). While not my vintage wardrobe, I'm quite happy with my selections.
Do you have summer to do list?
Ciao Bella!
