Sundays on Silverado #109

Life Lately

My sweet mister had the day off one day this week while I had to work. I came home to happy hour all ready to go! He made these beautiful Strawbery Basil Vodka Cocktails and some caprese stuffed mushrooms. It was a good Thursday night!

He has to work the entire holiday week though, so I’m using to the time to catch up on some projects.

My herb garden is out of control, so I gathered a basketful of basil and dried it on sheet pans in the oven while I worked on other things around the house. Now I’ll have homemade dried basil all winter long. Such an easy way to preserve herbs.

I also worked on a few Dixie Belle projects. I have lots of fun things to share with you soon. 🙂

My favorite baby is getting so big! She goes to speech therapy, physical therapy, and occupational therapy multiple times a week, but it’s definitely paying off.

She was so proud of herself for being able to roll over on her own this week for the first time!

And she’s trying lots of new foods. She’s not ready to eat a big piece of Iowa sweet corn yet, but she sure was interested in playing with it!

She brings so much joy to our family.

In Case You Missed It…

I found this nice solid wood table at a thrift store, and gave it a makeover for our college son’s apartment. It was a fun project to make, and it was a hit with the kid and all his roommates!

The Weekly Features!

Now that September is here, it feels like fall is starting to creep in. I had my first fall flavored drink at Starbucks yesterday (Apple Crisp Macchiato!), the evenings are beginning to cool down nicely, and football games are back!

I’m not quite ready to go full-on pumpkin everything yet though, so I loved reading both Debra’s and CoCo’s posts about easing into fall.

You can check them out here: 17 Ways to Ease into Fall, and 10 Tips to Transition to Fall.

I also love seeing all the DIYs each week that you guys link up.

I’m definitely planning to try to make my own Book Print Leaf Garland like MaryJo’s.

Plus, you know how much I love a good furniture flip, and this two-toned French Provincial Dresser from Lee Ann is stunning!

All these features have been pinned to the Sundays on Silverado Pinterest Board! I’d love for you to follow our Pinterest board!

  1. It’s so much fun to see how big Evie is getting and how much progress she’s making too. I know every day you get to spend with her is a treasure! Thanks so much for featuring my simple ways to ease into Fall post. I really appreciate it. Hugs, CoCo

  2. Omgosh Niky! She is simply adorable and that smile is beautiful. Thank you for sharing her with us. Hope you have a wonderful Labor Day and truly appreciate the book page feature. XO- MaryJo

  3. thanks for sharing my post on transitioning to Fall. I’m with you, I just can’t do tons of pumpkins and dark leaves when it’s still hot outdoors. Evie is adorable as always and the corn is as big as she is!! Have a great week, Niky. Thanks for hosting.

  4. Oh my goodness, your sweet baby is getting so big and she always looks so happy! What a beautiful human she is! Both of my kids needed various combinations of speech, occupational, and physical therapy and those were definitely some of the best decisions I have ever made as a parent. No regrets there! It helped them both so much! I hope you are having a lovely weekend and thanks so much for the link party!


    1. Thanks so much, Shelbee. I’m glad to hear that your children benefited from these services as well. My sweet daughter and son-in-law are amazing parents and work so hard to get Evie to all her appointments and therapies. I’m so proud of them. ❤️
