Let’s Get Personal

I’ve decided to take a break from the project posts today and thought it would be fun to share some tidbits.  I want to hear from you too, of course! I almost died when I was born.  I got stuck with my arm raised over my head and ended up dislocating my shoulder, which caused me to stay in that… Read more →

Front Porch Inspiration

Don’t get me wrong (and don’t tell Matt), summer is my all time favorite season and I love the heat, but I am also ready for fall to show its face.  Im not ready for the 50 tons of leaves that will fall into my treeless yard, but I am ready for cooler temps so I can get outside and… Read more →

Backyard Blues

I have the backyard blues.  I really really really hate our backyard.  I know they say it takes a long time and a lot of money to create a great backyard, but when you are as directional-less as I am, sadness sets in. There has been A LOT of trial and error with this yard and at this point I… Read more →

Something is Missing or I Have Regret

Hello friends!  It has been a crazy week this week with traveling and trying to catch up for work. This weekend we have friends coming into town and will be staying with us.  That means I have to clean the guest room and move the kitties food/toilet to another space.  While I was dusting the room, something seemed off.  Something… Read more →

Setting Up Shop – part 1

Breaking news over here at the homestead.  We FINALLY made huge progress in our office.  I mean, epic progress. Just to show you what our thought process was over the last two years, here was a smallish to do list: We wanted the office green.  No, blue/gray.  No, blue/gray/green.  The color we decided on is far from those Built in… Read more →

Two Chairs Sitting Pretty

Happiest Monday to ya!  Another busy weekend (sort of) in the books.  I am taking this week to really focus on getting a routine situated at home now that I will be working here full time.  The last two weeks was adjusting to not being stuck in an office without AC (true story). First I want to make an announcement.… Read more →

The Office Saga

Happy July!!  It’s July 1st and you know what that means……BIRTHDAY MONTH!!!  Yes, I am fully aware that I am too old to love birthdays this much, but I do. This week I started my new job and while it has been slow, I can tell I am going to like it (when I get into a groove).  The best… Read more →

Our Oasis

Hey friends!  It has been a minute, but for good reason.  Life has been CRAZY around here. Two weekends ago, we headed to New Orleans for a friends wedding.  Pretty much had a great time.  While we were there, my dad came into town for the next week.  He did so much amazing work in our backyard.  I had a… Read more →

Our 2nd Housiversary

Can you believe we are quickly approaching our second house and wedding anniversary (THIS WEEK!)?  I cant believe how quickly it has gone and how far the house has come.  Not only has our house come a long way, but so has our neighborhood.  10 years ago I wouldn’t have stepped foot in this area with all the crime, but… Read more →
