First Home Dreams
First Home Dreams documents the restoration, renovation and decoration of a brick farmhouse built in 1899. Things rarely go as planned, and we change our minds about things frequently! We are located in Minesing, Ontario, Canada.
Well this is awkward.

Authors: AshleyHas anyone ever noticed that the word awkward is awkward itself? Like the spelling, it just looks....awkward.
Anyway, that's not the point of this post. I'm just delaying talking about it. The point is...we're moving.
And that's awkward because, HELLO?! The name of my blog is FIRST Home Dreams. We were bound and determined to...

Authors: AshleyThe other night, for what is probably the second time ever, I was upstairs working on wedding stuff in the teeny tiny little room that we've designated as an office. You've never seen it on the blog, because it's not picture worthy in the least. Nevertheless, it felt really good to be sitting at a desk rather than crunched up in an...

Authors: Ashley...and not losing my mind.

To top it off, I'm a bridesmaid in both my friend's and my...

Bring on Christmas! I'm done decorating.
- Published on Monday, 17 December 2012
Authors: AshleyJust a few days after proclaiming that I'm officially in the Christmas spirit, I'm now officially finished with my Christmas decorating. I didn't do much, because really...I'm not into cleaning up a whole bunch of stuff come January, especially with the whole wedding thing happening in February.
This weekend I decorated our front...
Frivolous Friday - Things I Like But Not Enough to Pin
- Published on Friday, 14 December 2012
Authors: AshleyLast night, just as I laid my head down on my pillow, a little beep sounded off somewhere in the house. I thought I was tired enough to ignore it and just fall asleep. But, that wasn't the case.
At first I thought it was the smoke detector in the upstairs hall, just outside our bedroom. Apparently my hearing isn't that accurate,...
Here it is!

Authors: AshleyWell, you asked one of you asked. Which is good enough for me. Here's our run of the mill Christmas tree!
It was my first year putting the lights on, and I've gotta say...it's kind of the worst. They stick out in weird places, and my mom always managed to do it so that you could hang heavy ornaments from the wires, but mine just...
I'm officially in the Christmas spirit.

Authors: AshleyWell folks, I finally feel like Christmas is on its way. I'm by no means ready for the big day, but I'm starting to get excited!

Authors: AshleyI had a better post written for this last night, but it has disappeared into the bowels of the interwebs.
So here's an outhouse decorated for Christmas.
Because we're classy like that.

Making New Traditions
- Published on Friday, 30 November 2012
Authors: AshleyThis Christmas will be the first Christmas that Mike and I have spent together since we started seeing each other five years ago. This is also the first Christmas that I won't be going home to Vancouver Island and the first Christmas that I won't be seeing my parents and my brother when I get up on Christmas morning.
That was a lot...
