Floors, floors, floors!

2015-06-27 17.06.40

After closing on the house, we knew we had to get two big projects out of the way before we could move in – the floors, and painting the living room and bedroom. The biggest and longest project was, of course, the floors – it took us three weekends and two weekday evenings to complete, but …

HemisFares Review

2015-08-30 18.06.55

I recently received a package of Hemis Fares pasta, a Kroger Stores exclusive product, to review. Please keep in mind that I did receive this product for free, but I was not paid for my review. Even if I was paid for my review, I would still provide an honest review. I’m on the fence …

Keep Friends Close and Anemones Closer

From the moment we walked into the house during our first walkthrough, I knew I needed to get rid of what we came to affectionately name The Fishtank. I’m pretty sure at this point that this strange terrarium thing has been here for all 60 years that the house has been standing, but it just …

Whole House List


Now that we’ve closed on our new house, I figured it was time to share what I’ve been working on since we signed our purchase agreement. As I mentioned in my post about buying this house, it’s been a rocky road to where we are now, filled with lots and lots of excitement, and lots and …

Whole House Color Scheme… Again

A few days before closing, we headed over to Lowes to buy doorknobs and get some paint swatches so we could get an idea of our color scheme before closing, and all we could find in paint swatches in the HGTV Sherwin Williams colors, which are great, but I could only find one of the colors …

Whole House Color Scheme

whole house color 2015

One of our first projects (after a through scrubbing) planned for our new house is painting all of the rooms. I spent a lot of time before closing picking out a whole-house color scheme that would be cohesive and make the house look bigger. I started with a floor plan that I built with the …

We Bought a House!

kinloch pixelated

There are photos in this post that are blurred out for the homeowner’s privacy. Long, long ago, in a galaxy far far away way back in September, before Chris and I got married, we tried to buy a house. It didn’t go well. After putting in our offer and getting it accepted, it turned out that …

April BoCandy Review

Recently, Chris and I started getting the monthly candy box – BoCandy. BoCandy is a monthly subscription of international and imported candy. You get a box, and then a few days later, you get an email about what’s in the box. When we started getting it, it came in an envelope, but they recently switched …

Easy Ornament Wreath

We didn’t do very much decorating for Christmas this year. We’re trying to pack up while waiting to get short sale approval on a house we fell in love with, so it didn’t make a whole lot o sense to decorate the whole apartment (which is in shambles) this year. I did see a couple of …
