Goodbye 2018

What a ride it’s been. You feel the same? I’ve read so many people’s year end posts and the phrase “highest highs and lowest lows” is being passed around a lot. For me, scratch the highest highs, make it a persistent low and it’s spot on, haha. Last year was plain hard. I felt like … More Goodbye 2018

Christmas Home Tour

I wasn’t going to do a full on holiday house tour this year because I kinda already did one. But I’ve been having great success lately designing our puzzling family room, so I thought maybe all dressed up for the holidays would be a fun way to share the changes! Plus, this year I haven’t put … More Christmas Home Tour

Rainbow Christmas Tree

Did you have one of these ceramic lighted trees as a kid? We did and it might be my favorite Christmas decoration memory from childhood. (Well that and an odd stuffed Christmas mouse in clothes that hid under low slung furniture? Mom???) I looked forward to organizing those little plastic bulbs all year long! It … More Rainbow Christmas Tree

Halloween Madness

It’s the MOST wonderful time of the year…and I went a little crazy with the Halloween touches. The past few years I’ve become a holiday decorating minimalist, so this is me really going all out, haha. If not at Halloween, when? Proudly, all the Halloween items still fit into 1 storage box, but there’s fun stuff … More Halloween Madness

Five Year House Tour

In honor of our sweet little 60’s ranch and five tumultuous years together, I’m sharing a whole house tour! I’ve never shared the whole place at once, mostly because we’ve been in constant project mode since moving in. But this summer, just shy of 5 years of owning it, our entire home was shot for … More Five Year House Tour

Couch Problems

Do you have a room you just can’t get to work? Mine is my family room. Every time I share I say the same thing. It bugs me that I can’t get my favorite room in our house to submit to my will. And even though I have big fun future plans in here to … More Couch Problems

Kitchen!

We’re still living in what I call “phase 1” of our kitchen redo. Phase 1 started, and was mostly completed, soon after we moved in but some recent finishing touches have made it as good as it’s gonna get until we move on to bigger (probably not major…though I’m taking suggestions!) changes in the future.The … More Kitchen!

Poolside Gossip

Every summer I spend way too much time scheming ways to get a backyard pool. Like a real one. I’m not one to splurge on big ticket items and prefer travel to most “stuff”, but one day I see myself blowing all our money on a professional huge personal body of water. (And, no, I haven’t … More Poolside Gossip

Den

Guess what? We finished baseboards in our den years after we put the wood floors down because sometimes doing everything yourself takes a long time pat on the back anyways and to commemorate the accomplishment, I figured an updated room tour was in order. I seem to share this space yearly during holidays (last year and year … More Den
