A Good Laugh

Here’s a good laugh for all of you…Guess when the last time I went to the gym was? April 3rd! No joke. That is funny, isn’t it?! Kinda makes me wonder if the membership fee is even worth it. That one visit cost me quite a bit of moolah! But watch out – with single … Continue reading

2013 – Ready or Not, Here I Come!

My SIL asked me the other day if Seth and I were going to make any resolutions this year. I think this is the first year that I haven’t really thought about it. I’m not sure I have any real resolutions. Goals and intentions, yes. But resolutions sound so stodgy and strict and formal. I … Continue reading

Thanksgiving Place Settings

With cooler mornings and evenings, though, it means lots of layering. Which means….CARDIGANS! (“No, it’s a pullover.” Two points if you get the movie reference!) A … Continue reading

After seeing great laundry remodels over at Tell’er All About It and In The Fun Lane, I’ve had the hankering to finish off our laundry room. Who needs a fancy shmancy laundry room, you ask? Everyone! That’s who! If we’re gonna be stuck doing the laundry, at least it can be a pleasant room with … Continue reading

Oh, Nelly!

As if I don’t have enough on my plate already. I cruised through some thrift stores tonight for fun, and found this little gem. And I just HAD to have it! So even though I still have a few other projects to finish up, I was a rebel and took on another little furniture project. … Continue reading
