Stoop!!!

This post has been such a long time in the making. It makes me so happy that I might fill this post with overly positive words and phrases. You guys!, six year, that's how long it's been since we moved into this house. Six years ago I was staring at an ugly white house decked out with lots of mint green trim, green stairs, green awnings, and no landscaping to speak of. I swallowed hard when I agreed with my Jeff that this was the best house for us. Was it my dream house? Let's just say it had READ MORE

Easy Target Hack

Hey Guys! Here is a quick post that I wanted to share regarding this bentwood lamp from Target. The table lamps are on clearance right now for $30 bucks, and they are super easy to transform into sconces - in case you be needing a bentwood sconce. I just grabbed my jigsaw and chopped the bottom right off! After chopping the base off the lamps, I used a countersink drill bit to make a flush hole in the shank, and then screwed them directly to the wall. The sconces flank my vestibule and I READ MORE

We've been spending our weekends in the porch, and it has felt great, like wonderfully insanely great. I've got lots of little seedlings growing indoors, living things are popping up out of the ground, and just today the ice went out on a lot of the local lakes. Spring is by far my favorite time of year. Like I said last week, I've been itching to get READ MORE

Basement Reveal!

Friends and pals! Almost a year ago we started the process of having our basement remodeled. It's been an exciting, stressful, and messy project but we are so happy that it's finally over. We are so glad we decided to move ahead with the renovation because it has totally changed the way we live in our house! Winter has been manageable this year now that we have a sweet in-home-retreat to relax and hang out in. The living and dining room are almost always clean because kids aren't playing with READ MORE
