Priceless?

Priceless?

Over the weekend we had a neighborhood yard sale.  This happens 2x a year and I’ve gone to all of them since we moved in.  I’ve managed to score some pretty cool items, for cheap too.  Last year I got a bag of pink Christmas ornaments for $5.00, much to Matt’s dismay.  (This led to the purchase of a white Christmas tree! 😉 )  At the same house, I found some really large 24×36 wooden frames.  I think they were $1.00…

One Round, Two Firsts

One Round, Two Firsts

Well hello there! It’s been a while. Life has been kind of busy lately. Matt and I always seem to have something to do lately, whether it’s playing golf, doing stuff around the house, or just being lazy. I feel like we are so much busier now days.   Three weeks ago I started weekly golf lessons. Our club is offering a weekly Ladies Clinic this Spring/Summer. As soon as I heard about it, I knew I was going to…

Frosty

Frosty

I know I’ve talked about this a bunch so I won’t rehash all the details regarding our door debacle. Anyway, a few weeks ago, a car guy Matt knows, posted some window frosting he’d done for a local hotel. At that point, I had no clue how I was going to get our door frosted so I asked Matt how to contact him. He gave me his email and then I basically begged him to come do our door. He…

Patience paid off!

Patience paid off!

For the past year I’ve been drooling over this one specific dining room table that I kept seeing on Pinterest.  Of course, none of the links listed where the actual table was from.  I searched high and low and one day I finally found a blog that stated where the table was from, Restoration Hardware.  I immediately went to their website and found the table I’d been lusting over was the Salvaged Wood Trestle Dining Table.  And then I found…

A tale of two doors

A tale of two doors

Right after Matt and I moved into the new house we had a really bad storm come through and our front door leaked.  You can read about that here.  That was 3 months ago.  Since then I’ve been waiting for my new front door.  While we weren’t happy that the front door leaked, it gave me the opportunity to actually get the front door I wanted.  When we bought the house, I had dreams of removing the grids from the…

The making of a craft room

The making of a craft room

When we picked our new house I knew I was going to make one of the bedrooms into a craft room.  Matt was getting an office and I wanted a craft room.  We had the space so I decided to use the bedroom next to the the master.  It’s the only bedroom not connected to a bathroom and I wasn’t keen on having a bedroom right next to our bedroom/bathroom so this was the perfect space. For months I searched…

It was a doozy!

It was a doozy!

Thursday afternoon I was standing on the screen porch watching the neighbors film House Hunters, when a loud clap of thunder boomed.  Made me jump.  It had started to sprinkle and that probably kept me and a few other neighbors from being a bit more obvious with our stalking. 😉 I finally went inside and the rain started to pick up.  Then the lightning started.  Matt called me to come upstairs to the “viewing room” to see the show.  I…

Sunrise, Sunset

Sunrise, Sunset

Wow, I didn’t realize it has been quite so long since my last post.  We have been in the new house for almost a month and so far so good!  We are just waiting on the new sofa to come and then I have to persuade Matt to buy a dining room table.  My craft desk is on the way and then I can start working on that room (which I’m really excited about)! Yesterday Matt was sitting on the…

Keys to the Casa

Keys to the Casa

Well, it’s OFFICIAL!  We have a brand new house! Due to weather concerns, our closing attorney pushed our closing from 10:30 yesterday to 2:30.  While I would have preferred to close a little earlier in the day, this allowed us to sleep in and take our time.  We met the builder and warranty guy at the house at 12:30 to make sure everything on our checklist was complete.  Once the details were finalized, Matt and I headed to lunch before…

#icepocolipse 2015

The last few days the forecast has been up in the air for what we were in store for this week.  Some models had Raleigh getting a few inches of snow.  Others had use getting up to .5″ of ice.  Yay Snow, Boo Ice! Yesterday morning my office sent out an email stating people could work from home that afternoon should they be able.  Around 12:30 my coworkers and myself headed home.  It was a pretty slow afternoon as we…
