After much planning and hard work, the office is finally done! What kickstarted this project was the fact that James was going to start working from home more. I wanted him to be able to have a space that was creative and more on the masculine side. First off, we painted all the walls a … Continue reading The Office is Finished!
In those first weeks of pregnancy (or the whole thing) you have to imagine every future scenario with a boy and with a girl. For me it was much easier picturing girl things because that's what my family mainly consists of and it's what I've been around.

SO MUCH STORAGE SPACE!!! I love that everything has a place on the shelves and isn't piled up against … Continue reading An Office Update

However, this mood also helps you get organized, keep things fresh, and gives you a … Continue reading I’m In The Mood….For Rearranging

Here's the hallway before: Here they are after: The color is Ace Paint: Firefly After two coats of primer and two coats of … Continue reading Painting the Hallway Cabinets
Fresh homemade salsa is on its way from the ground to my mouth! This last week was full of trips to the local nursery's and yard work (for as long as my allergies would allow me). My mom was a HUGE help in this process of planting my own garden and it's something I will … Continue reading The Garden Is Planted!
