Today’s Challenge: Something you are looking forward to This one’s easy – finishing our master bath renovation! The room is about thisbig. When we moved in, it had a small vanity, a toilet, and the shower stall. Oh, and carpet. And plastic, dusty rose-colored accessories. And floral wallpaper. Brian tore everything but the shower out […]

Birthday Party Recap

Balloons

Now that we’ve (almost) fully recovered from the birthday weekend I thought I might share a few photos! The party went really well, and although C can’t talk, I feel certain if he could he’d say he had fun. ;) We scattered some helium-filled balloons around the house, but for the most part we kept […]

Candy-Themed Party

GumballFlowers

I thought today I’d share two photos from C’s baby shower that Brian’s work threw us last year (see how well I’m doing with keeping the party theme going?). Brian eats a ridiculous amount of candy (and is SKINNY, too – so unfair!) and it’s a well-known fact up at his work. Knowing this, his […]

Tuesday Tip

I don’t know that I’ll do this every week, but I figured today I’d share a tip that I’ve figured out for decorating our home – and saving money, of course! A while back I bought some gorgeous candles on clearance at a local shop. They’re square, which I love, and they have a warm […]

Decorating on the Cheap: Chalkboard Border

Border_1

Our house was built in 1972, and although the previous owners had done a few updates, much of that was left to us. They were also big fans of country decor, which we are decidedly not. Examples include a Texas-themed bathroom, complete with navy and white walls; pattern-bedecked wallpaper in the entry, and Americana border […]

Brian’s Bargain

Clock_LR

Brian, my husband, often teases me when I get excited about a sale or a bargain. As we’re walking out of the store where the bargain was found, he’ll say, “I bet you can’t wait to look at the receipt and figure out exactly how much you saved, right?” or, “I bet you can’t wait […]

Birthday on the Cheap

AppleCake

Brian’s birthday was yesterday, and we had a little party with some friends. Brian’s a pretty shy guy and doesn’t like much of a fuss made over his birthday, but one thing we always do (party or not) is make and decorate a cake. Last year we did a cake modeled after the second Apple […]
