I sew just about anything; I paint walls and furniture only; and I fix up our house til my fingers fall off. I have the most hilarious husband on the planet and the cutest baby your eyes ever did see. All in all, life is grand.

So we have done a TON of work on the house this past monthish because we are now moving/selling. I apologize for not doing posts on every (ok, any) projects, but there just wasn't/isn't the time. Plus, it was mostly repainting trim and touching up paint so it was extra... Continue reading

I took this weekend off from work. I don't technically "work" on the weekends, but I use the option of staying up later to get ahead on lectures for the next week. I decided that could all wait this weekend. The end of the semester is almost here so things... Continue reading

Is it just our house, or does everyone go absolutely bananas as soon as the weather is nice? We've been putting up a new retaining wall in the backyard, wrapping up projects on the inside of the house, sprucing up the entry way (helllloooooo red door!), and buying plants like... Continue reading

I've been described as "quirky" dozens of times throughout my life. I've never thought it an insult, it just means I march to the beat of my own drum. I say what's on my mind, I don't apologize for what makes me happy, and I find joy in the most... Continue reading

So I'm back from hibernation...kinda. The card I use to pay for this old bloggity blog expired and I just now got around to updating it, hence the hiatus. Honestly though, I was really debating whether or not to continue with this or not. I felt like while I was... Continue reading

13 in (20)13 I got this idea from another blog I've been following (Casa de Lewis) and I really love the idea more than a traditional resolutions list. I'm picking 13 things I either want to do or work on in this next year now that I actually have time... Continue reading

Why, yes, yes it is 1:30 am...I've been sick the past couple days and I'm waiting for my medicine to kick in so I can get back to sleep and breathe at the same time...I hear those two things work well together. Anyways.... I've graduated! Finally. Don't know if I've... Continue reading

I have an itch to tear something down. I get like this every once in a while. I'm not angry or anything, I just love ripping stuff off walls. I have a month left of grad school then I need to write out a list of things I want to... Continue reading

According to these fine ladies (and gent), it's time for another Pinterest Challenge! Sherry and John Sarah Carmel Katie Check out their posts because they are far more inspiring than mine. Thanks to a ridiculously overwhelming schedule lately, I haven't had a chance to do any crafty Pinterest projects. As... Continue reading

Getting slightly overwhelmed with all I have going on the next couple of months. With my thesis defense all scheduled and ready to go, I'm anxiously awating the end of this semester and finally graduating. We have done some small updates (and by "we" I mean the hubs) that I... Continue reading

I have been up since 3:45 this morning so I took advantage of the extra time and taught Amelia to make cobbler before I left for work. I've never made cobbler, so I don't know if 5 minutes of dumping fruit into a pan then throwing some cake mix thing... Continue reading

Well, turns out I'm going to get to start working on some new projects over Thanksgiving. I know that's still a long way off, but for some reason it seems a hell of a lot closer than graduation (mid December). I've been thinking a lot about what I'd like to... Continue reading

I'm almost done with my MFA. It just hit me. I will be starting my very last semester of college in a month. That's just crazy. This has been the most enjoyable/stressful/reaffirming time of my life, without a doubt. All of it has and will be worth it though because... Continue reading

I know this title makes zero sense becuase (to most normal people) growing up is usually when you get married, or buy a house, or have a kid... Well, that little lady of ours has made us grow up with our decorating (or lack there of) choices. When I was... Continue reading

Last week we had some friends and family over for lunch on the 4th. Perfect time to try out a Pinterest pin I'd been wanting to try! Can we say Brownie Kabobs?? That's what they should actually look like. They tasted just as good as I imagined they would, though!... Continue reading

So I know I haven't posted anything useful in FOREVER, but somehow my blog traffic is up? Weird. It's been pretty insane around here. All last week I was commuting 150 miles a day roundtrip to teach a couple summer camps (which was SO fun!), so I didn't get to... Continue reading

We never went to sleep last night. Between a poor teething little lady and a storm of epic proportions, we just never got any shut eye. Our power went out and we ended up having to drive around for an hour and a half in the air conditioned car since... Continue reading

Did anyone know this? That it's summer already? I guess it didn't really occur to me that because finals were this past week, school must be over for a few months. Insane. Seriously. Oh, and my baby is four months old and rolls over, giggles, and is eating solids. Where... Continue reading

Sorry I've been so absent lately! It's been somewhat...how do I say it...insane here lately. My sweet little 3.5 month old has decided now would be a good time to start teething. Yeah, wasn't expecting that until MUCH later! After a frantic call to her doctor last night, we were... Continue reading

We got a hand-me-down treadmill last weekend that we are keeping in the garage. It's been great to have around- me and the hubs can take turns on it while the baby is sleeping (one stays inside in case a lost-pacifier scream erupts from the crib), which is much more... Continue reading

I got this table when I had moved from Austin back up to Dallas in my small Mazda Protege a couple years after I had graduated from college and didn't have room for furniture, only the basics :my clothes, my sewing machine, and some fabric. Priorities, I tell ya priorities.... Continue reading

We used to have our towels on the oven door bar but it drove me crazy! Without fail, every time we'd open the door it would fall off. I LOVE having it in front of the sink though!

So these Pinterest Challenges are kind of amazing. Katie and Sherry knew how to get a girl to get some work done on her house when they put these challenges together. I'm kind of thrilled that I didn't have to beg/plead with the hubs to let me make some small... Continue reading
