Week one in #ourforeverflorida home

  I blogged about our first home a lot. I mean, just look at all these posts. & I’m so glad I did. That house was special to us, our first real home and a place we poured a lot of love into. However, I never blogged about it on a regular basis like some DIYContinue Reading

The making of #ourforeverfloridahome

As I sit on the couch, wearing my “I should blog this…” t-shirt and eating a Taco Bell Cantina bowl, in the middle of a house that is about 95% packed up, I realized, “Um, ya. I really should blog this.” It’s been a crazy month+ for us and if you know me in realContinue Reading

Mount a KFC Popcorn Chicken “Nugget-vention”

Any parent knows that at one point or another in the raising of your children, you go through a phase where they only eat a number of items. It’s funny though, because while each of my kids has their own preferences, they definitely have a limited number of things that they are willing to eatContinue Reading

wiww: a new ‘do

This week’s wiww will be short & sweet. Rather than feature what I’m actually wearing, I’m going to feature my new ‘do this week. Hair do, that is.

I’ve definitely worn more sweaters, scarfs and boots than in years past. Which I don’t mind a bit, however, from time toContinue Reading

wiww: one dress, two ways.

  This week, I wore one dress, two ways. Dressed up, dressed down. I love when a piece works like this. Monday morning, I dropped the kids off at school and headed to a weekly Monday morning meeting with one of my clients. When we left the house it was a little cool, enough toContinue Reading

10 on 10. My first this year.

I haven’t done a 10 on 10 in quite some time. Wow, and now that I look back…it’s actually been QUITE some time since I did one. In August I did a 4 on 14 because I forgot all about 10 on 10, but November of 2013 was the last time I did a trueContinue Reading

7 things you can do to take your home from builder-grade to custom-built.

We’ve owned our home for almost five years now, and in the time we’ve lived here, we’ve done a lot to make it not just a house, but a home. I tell people all the time that we’ve worked hard to take our builder-grade home and make it more like it had been custom-built justContinue Reading
