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… Read More Priceless?
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… Read More One Round, Two Firsts
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… Read More Frosty
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.… Read More Patience paid off!

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… Read More The making of a craft room
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… Read More It was a doozy!
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… Read More Sunrise, Sunset
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… Read More Keys to the Casa
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… Read More #icepocolipse 2015
