The Post You’ve All Been Waiting For!
- Published on Thursday, 12 July 2012
I heard you.
Out there in bloggyville, whispering, wondering, waiting.
When, oh, when will Amy show us her new shower door??
Today, my friends. Today.
Get out your party hats and Dale Jr coffee mugs.
Because this one is going to be a doozy.
Not. (Party on, Wayne)
D and I really did agree on almost everything throughout the build. And...

I was off most of last week, galavanting around with my little guy swimming, shopping, napping… enjoying.
I was going to get back in the swing of things today with a real nail biter of a post about how we finally installed shower doors in our master bathroom.
But I’m feeling far too inspired of late to talk about boring ol...
A Happy Little Wreath
- Published on Tuesday, 03 July 2012
Bob Ross reference there. Did you grab that? I just couldn’t think of a catchy title with the word “wreath” in it. I can’t even think of a word that rhymes with wreath at the moment… Send caffeine.
I made a wreath, is the point I’m trying to make.
To make your own happy little wreath you will need:...
Blogging Without Borders

I’m slightly terrified this morning.
I’ve known this day was coming. July 2, after all, usually appears on most calendars. But this July 2 means something more to me than the eve of the eve of the Fourth of July.
It means… I’m Blogging Without Borders.
Thirteen of my best bloggy buddies and I have committed...
Barn Light Electric
- Published on Friday, 29 June 2012
I feel slightly guilty for entering this giveaway.
After all, we just built a brand new house that includes (mostly) brand new lighting.
When our builder walked away leaving us with a half-built house, his buddy the already-paid electrician also opted not to return.
We were struggling to finish everything ourselves on a budget...
The Best $15 I’ve Ever Spent
- Published on Wednesday, 27 June 2012
We were so anxious to get moved into the house that we sort of neglected a few key items. Namely, window coverings. It wasn’t a big deal for most of the house since we don’t have any neighbors to spy on us but it was an issue in one area – Junior’s room.
We try to have him in bed around 8:00, but it...

boy, n. 1. – Noise with dirt on it.
You’ve seen this definition, yes?
Accurate though it is, in my opinion, it is missing one essential element – constant motion.
Junior and I got to spend an extra day together last week.
Those are his driving glasses.
We began our day by grabbing a strawberry milkshake and
running wild v...

My parents recently celebrated their 34th wedding anniversary.
And Junior decided he’d like to give them his own gift – a little plant with a likeness of himself. But he needed a cute way to affix his picture to the plant, so he asked his dad for some help.
All you need for this mini-project is some wire and...
A Real Life Home
- Published on Thursday, 21 June 2012
To say that we have been dreaming about and working toward this house for a long time would be an understatement. From the moment we got together, we began talking about what we wanted for the future, and a home to raise our little family in was top on the list.
We’d both bounced around quite a bit. I don’t think...
Support Your Local Kitchen Counter

When our granite was being installed, the granite guys had a bit of an accident and we ended up with a crack in our island.
Nah, neither can I. They did a good job of fixing it. However, since we’ve got some decent overhang, they suggested we add some support so the crack wouldn’t get worse over time.
Enter D and his...
