July, we hardly knew ye! It’s the last day of a month that has been full of fun, busy and relaxing moments.
We started out July celebrating the 4th with a family barbecue at our house.
It was my first time ever using a grill, so it was totally intimidating at first, but not too bad. I set up a red, white and blue spread and guests brought desserts and sides. If you follow 623Designs:interiors on Instagram, you saw the patriotic ice cubes that I made for the lemonade.

It’s almost time for Little E’s second birthday.
So, I figure it’s about time that I shared pictures from her first birthday party. :)

What are your plans for the 4th? Anyone barbecuing? There’s still time to add a patriotic touch to your yard with these tips from my Red, White and Zebra Patio post.
Speaking of updates, you may have noticed that 623Designs:interiors has been sporting a new look. After sharing my plans for giving the blog a facelift, I decided to take the DIY route.

After I got the large front flowerbed looking halfway decent, I turned my attention elsewhere out front. I didn’t do anything wacky like spray painting the lawn green, but I did make an effort to disguise some unsightly elements of our yard.
Our house came with these utility boxes smack in the middle of the lawn.

I recently got roped into purchasing a newspaper subscription, which is something I haven’t had in forever. I’m a news junkie, but I prefer to get my news online since I don’t really have time to sit and read a traditional newspaper. But the paper came in handy with a recent lawn project.

In this Odds & Ends post I’ll be sharing a few maintenance tasks that I’ve done around the house over the last few months. Maintenance is never as fun as creating something, but it’s a necessary step in keeping your home looking good for the long haul.
The stair banister to the second floor in the entryway of our house was stained a rich mocha colored that matched the floors in the house.
