pauseHi loves. I hope you had a good weekend and a good Monday (did you see the pie?!).

I have to press pause on the blog for a moment.  We close on our house in less than a week and I am so excited for what lies ahead.  I’m meeting with contractors this week to discuss plans to completely gut and renovate the kitchen, plus tear down some walls before we move in.  We’ll also be upgrading the electrical, painting the whole house (walls and trim) by ourselves,  replacing all the doors and toilets (code requires new low-flow ones or they won’t give us water), and some other little things before we move our stuff in sometime in October.  Oh yeah and then we have to actually MOVE which is a whole ‘nother big project.  Hah :)  We’ll be hiring out what we can afford to, but DIYing as much as we can to save some money.  Lots of work ahead!  Which means that this blog can’t really be a priority for me right now and that makes me sad, but it’s not like I’m disappearing or stopping altogether.  Just expect to see fewer posts from me for a while.  But I’ll be Instagramming and Facebooking just the same, so you can follow along there if you’d like (I’m @allsortsofpretty on Instagram and /AllSortsofPretty on Facebook).

In the meantime, here are some fun past posts to look through:

The picture above is from the San Francisco leg of our anniversary trip out west this summer.  We also visited Colorado (part 1, part 2), Seattle, Portland, took 3 days to drive down the gooooorgeous Pacific Coast Highway (1, 2, 3), and finished up in LA.

Did you ever see this cork board I made from a serving tray?

Or these candles from vintage mason jar lids?

I’m sure you’ve seen how to make your own Almond Milk by now, but just in case.

Oh and you can make your own almond butter and Nutella too.

But these ice cream sandwiches are one of my favorite recipes I’ve posted.

These doughnuts are awesome too though.  Oh and these brownies (haven’t made these in a while, I need to get on that).

I told you about my Top 10 favorite girly movies and some design books that are inspiring me.

Oh and you can still get blue mason jars on Amazon by the way.

Okay, that’s it for now.  I’ll check back in later this week.  Thanks for understanding :)
