We have been spending a lot of time at the new house cleaning, painting and doing some remodeling. We painted the living room, the blue turned out much […] Read more…

We Bought a House…

  Say what?! That’s how I feel too. It all happened really fast but I am so excited. I didn’t want to post about it too soon and jinx anything, and although we still have to get through the appraisal, everything else has gone smoothly.

The House List. . .

After living in our house for four years, Aaron and I have an ongoing list of what we want in our next house. Every time we are out and about and see something cool that we would like we “add it to the list”. Here are a few of our favorites. Finished basement for entertaining. In […] Read more…

Baby Friendly Entertainment Center

  So now that Austin is 6 months old and sitting up on his own, I know that rolling, crawling and walking are coming soon. I have been trying to figure out how to baby proof. One of the areas I was stumped on was my entertainment center. It was far from kid friendly. Because […] Read more…
