The Lil House That Could
- Published on Wednesday, 05 October 2011
It’s true, I’m in love with Crate&Barrel. I’m pretty sure this is the one store we go to where I’m more excited than Rebecca is — ok, with the exception of the Apple store, but that’s an entirrrreeelly different thing. When we registered for our wedding, Rebecca told me to calm down adding t...
Get Me Some Glasses!

I told you on Thursday that our beloved family room TV had died right then and there, as I typed my post. By Friday, it was still dead, but I stared at it anyway.
(warning: this post has a lot of awful iPhone photos in it)
I had a long week last week and I really did not want to spend Friday night TV shopping. I thought maybe I could...
Fancy-ing the Fireplace
- Published on Thursday, 29 September 2011
I’m back! Can I tell you it’s been a hectic and crazy week? To top it off, I worked until 8 tonight and our family room tv just died. I had such big plans of relaxing tomorrow night and catching up on all of the How I Met Your Mother, Modern Family and Jersey Shore that I missed this week. RIP Plasma, you were our first...
What You Know Bout That

These last few days, Rebecca has been talking about doing a frequently asked questions post. She planned to do this tonight. I just went to the family room and she’s sound asleep; completely exhausted from homework and class. So here goes… just my version… and not necessarily about our house, our projects, etc.
Shock Value 2.0
- Published on Monday, 26 September 2011
Remember that dramatic painting we did for office 1.0? And remember when Rebecca mentioned we might be taking the office upstairs once we have children 5 years from now? Well, I’ve been thinking a lot about that room lately mainly because office 1.0 isn’t entirely functional. It’s not the o...
Pushed To The Side
- Published on Thursday, 22 September 2011
Two weekends ago, we got our new sectional and we were ready to ditch the coffee tables turned makeshift end tables we’ve had. Instead of putting them at the ends of the couch where they belong, we immediately wanted them out of sight.
Over the weekend, Mike’s brother and his wife had a yard sale so we dropped the tables...
A Little More Personal

So I’m back in school for the semester and by the time Wednesday rolls around, I feel like I’ve worked a full week. My Tuesday night class is until 10:30, which means I don’t get home until 11:30 and I stay at work until almost 7 to leave straight from there. Darwin is also still getting chemo, which we’ve...
A Powder Room Update
- Published on Monday, 19 September 2011
This weekend we got around to hanging a few things in the powder room- 2 white shelves from Target and a mirror from Lowe’s.
The lighting is impossible in this room and yes there is spackle all over the walls. One of the shelves took a plummet in the hanging process and took some wall with it. The story of our lives.

You already know that we unexpectedly painted our powder room a bold charcoal gray. I knew I wanted some bright white floating shelves, so we picked up some inexpensive ones from Target and we’re currently in the midst of hanging them.
Since the gray was a complete compulsive move, I didn’t have much else planned. The room is dark a
Just Let It Go

A few months ago, I wrote about my obsession with 20×200. And that obsession continues tonight!
Ever since we’ve visited the Museum of Modern Art, I’ve been obsessed with typography (well, more so than usual). It’s been catching my eye on just about everything — advertising, signs, letterhead, etc. I...
