Chit-Chat & DIY Sunday Showcase 08.30

by Alli

Welcome to Chit-Chat & DIY Sunday Showcase 08.30.  Yep, it’s the last weekend in August and fall is right around the corner.  Did you notice my new title?  The DIY Showcase is also a post where I just chit- chat about everything going on in my life at the moment.  It’s a little glimpse into my personal life.

So, what are you up to this weekend?  We’re getting ready for our annual family beach vacation.  This is where the whole gang gets together for a week at the beach.  Except this year, my oldest daughter and her husband won’t be able to make it.  They own their own business and they just so happen to be slammed with work and can’t get away.  We’re gonna miss them.

I’m also praying that tropical storm Erika dissipates before causing further damage.  And that she doesn’t make it up the SC coast.  My heart and prayers are with the families that have lost loved ones during this horrible storm.

Let’s talk about the favorite from last week’s party.  Since the weather will turn cooler within the next few weeks, my thoughts turn to coffee.  I don’t really drink that much coffee during the summer – just a cup in the morning.  But, when it turns cooler, I go back for my second cup.  I said all that to say that my favorite from last week is a Coffee Station Repurposed Buffet from My Repurposed Life. Isn’t it amazing?
