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 →


Hey friends!  Hope you had a super weekend.  We actually spent the weekend traveling to Denver.  My uncle is out there temporarily for work, so he sent an email inviting anyone that wanted to come out was welcome to.  Matt and I wanted a fun adventure so we took him up on his offer. Going into the week of the… Read more →


Hi friends!  Today is my last day of vacation and my goodness it was glorious.  So I am pretty glum that it is over.  It was the first time I have really taken any time off this year, so it was more than well deserved. Since I have been able to clear my head a little bit of all the… Read more →

It’s Time to Board and Batten!

I hope you read that in your cheesiest game show host voice!  If you didn’t, try that again. Of the million projects I am putting this house (and our bank account through), board and batten was one I have been eyeing but never really had the guts to do.  Looking back I have no idea why I felt that way.… Read more →

Under Pressure

Who is ready for a bullet style post?  It’s all I got right now.  Actually, I have a lot of say right now, but my thoughts a scattered. HOME: The house work/projects are starting overwhelm me.  From all the yard work we are trying to tackle to keeping the house actually clean, I am epically failing.  If you came over… Read more →

Charleston and the Race

Weekends will never be long enough.  Mondays will always stink.  Let’s extend weekends to three days and include Monday into that.  Then maybe we would all love Monday again. Friday we headed out to one of my very favorite places in the country, Charleston, SC.  It is rich with history, color, and just feels all around good.  We left the… Read more →

Not ready

Hi All.  I feel like other than my addiction to Facebook and Instagram, social media has been quiet for me.  I guess I dont have much to say, or I am too tired to say it. This weekend we are traveling down to Charleston for the Cooper River Bridge Run 10k.  I know exactly what to expect which is nice,… Read more →

Simple Sidelight Update

I have the winter blues.  I did see a few signs of spring, though.  My hostas and my lilies have not gotten the memo that it is still chilly outside and started sprouting through the mulch.  My neighbor’s marigolds have made a full appearance already.  I would take a picture of them, but she is very odd and likes to… Read more →
