Hello, Goodbye {Link-up!}

Last month I came up with the brilliant idea at the beginning of the month to make a list of things from the previous month I was saying goodbye to along with some things I was saying hello to in the new month, which is where my first Hello, Goodbye post came in. A few of you commented that you liked the idea so I got excited and decided to start my first monthly link-up!

The Rules:
-Follow my blog, Nestful of Love in whatever way you like (Bloglovin, GFC...)
-Grab the amazing button below created by my talented design friend Erin and add it to your post when you link up below or just link back to my blog

Let's get started shall we...
Nestful of LOve
Hello August, Goodbye July (Seriously, where did summer go?)
Hello Mortgage payment, Goodbye renting
Hello Revenge Season 2, Goodbye Revenge Season 1
Hello Lakehouse, pontoon and Lime-a-ritas, Goodbye worries
Hello school, Goodbye life
Hello highlighters, post it notes and cute classroom decor, Goodbye money
Hello new 2nd graders, Goodbye blog friends (but just for a little bit)
Hello Family Reunion 2013 and Cumberland Falls, Goodbye Cincinnati
Hello Mini cheesecakes, Goodbye self-control
Hello Photo wall, Goodbye boring blank wall
Hello Ten Year High school Reunion, Goodbye thinking I'm a young whipper snapper
10 years ago? Really? Really?

What are you saying hello and goodbye to this month?
If you don't get to link-up this time, I'll be doing another link up on September 1st!


And the lucky winner of the Noonday Collection giveaway is Holly G. I'll be contacting you soon!

Wait, did I miss something? Did you buy a house?

And yay for a little getaway and family time before school. (I wouldn't be able to resist spending all my money on cute classroom supplies either though - I walked through the section at Target yesterday just to ooh and aah over everything...)
