So we have been working our little booties off on our house for the last two weeks. My knees and [weirdly enough] my ankles are crazy sore from all the hours spent painting, doing trim work, and moving we’ve done in the last ten days. I don’t really know why my ankles are sore – that’s so strange to me. Maybe because of all the up and down off the floor when I was working on the baseboards? I don’t know.
Anyway, I do have a few pictures of some of the progress we made painting, so I will share! Continue reading
Many people have expressed interest in seeing more pictures of our new house, so I’ll oblige. We are closing the deal on Wednesday if all goes well! I’m so excited to get going on all the projects we want to do. As you’ll see from the pictures, there is a good bit of work that needs to be done. If anyone finds themselves bored on a Saturday and feels handy, come on over and I will hand you a paintbrush. Continue reading
Hello friends, it’s terrible that I haven’t posted in over a month! Work has been quite busy, and as it turns out purchasing a house is quite a process that also demands lots of time and energy. There were some updates I wanted to let you all know about, but I was kinda afraid I would jinx it or something if I put it on the blog. Do you ever feel that way? Like when you have great news but it isn’t for sure yet and you have to keep it under wraps? It is really difficult for me. I think that’s why I haven’t been able to even think about posting anything else here. But I think I can safely spill the beans now…. Continue reading
So if you read my last post you know that I, like everyone else in America, has a weight-loss-related New Year’s resolution. It is going pretty well so far, but slow going ha! I’ve lost three pounds. Which always reminds me of Regina George from Mean Girls.Anyway, we have another really exciting resolution – Husband and I decided that we are going to buy a house this year! Yay!! We didn’t really want to move into an apartment after we got married, but since we had relocated from Dallas and got new jobs we weren’t able to qualify for a mortgage just yet. :( But we knew it was something that we wanted in the near future, so it’s always been in the back of our minds.

Hello everyone. First off, sorry about the ridiculous bout of negativity in my last post. No more rants. I was, in fact, racked with guilt for posting something so negative and unproductive. Plus, I’m sure many of you noticed that there was a spelling error in the post – karma? Yes.
So today I have something that is positive and hopefully helpful, or at least inspires you to organize something at your nest.
Our pantry is teeny. Well, sort of. It’s very narrow, but it is actually quite deep. This caused all sorts of problems, though, because I had to dig through layers to find anything and not being able to see what was buried in the back kept me from having an accurate idea of the inventory I was working with. Digging through the pantry was making me crazy, and after a few weeks of cramming food in haphazardly I couldn’t take it anymore. Here’s a picture of the chaos: Continue reading
