My fireplace has been a constant design challenge for me. When we first moved in, it was white and beige just like the entire house. It had a really hideous, old fireplace screen across the opening that was black and bronze, and the fireplace was deemed non-functional by our inspector.... Continue reading

Hey mom friends. I'm not sure that my little hiatus was totally intentional, but I just wasn't feeling like I had much to say. I still don't totally feel back to where I want to be, but I'm giving it another go. There's only so many things we can juggle... Continue reading

If you haven't already noticed, I've been feeling upinspired lately when it comes to this blog. Maybe it's just what happens this time of year. We're getting tired of the cold (at least it hasn't been to bad) up here, and ready to get outside and get the garden going.... Continue reading

Yesterday was my birthday. I turned 23 (or according to my mom, 22 :-P). Is it weird that now that I'm 23 I feel like I can officially say I'm in my 20's? You've Got Mail is one of my favorite movies (as in I've seen it close to 200... Continue reading

Today, I spent most of my snowy day off making a wedding album. I have seen a lot about these customized photo books, but just assumed they were expensive and wrote it off in my mind. Well, I ended up receiving a coupon in my e-mail from Shutterfly. In the... Continue reading

Yesterday was our last day off: Ryan ending a 10 day vacation and me ending a 12 day vacation, so we knew we wanted to do something fun before we head back to work. One nice thing about living in Southern New Hampshire is that Boston is only an hour... Continue reading

So, I guess I jumped the gun a little in my last post. I realized that it's important to review, so I decided to back track a little and revisit 2011. It was a big year for us. Ryan and I are pretty constant changers anyway, but this year seemed... Continue reading

So I'm sure you've noticed by now that my blog looks a little a lot different! Remember how I was craving some change? Well, I decided to channel that need into my blog. My husband and I stayed up until 2:00 this morning changing everything, because once a Capricorn and... Continue reading

Christmas was definitely a success this year! Last year we had a baking dish shatter in the oven as our guests were walking up the front walk...yeah, it was a little nuts. No crazy incidents to report this year. Everything went pretty smoothly, and we had a great time! I... Continue reading

For some reason, Christmas is my favorite holiday. I was never raised with a big emphasis on Christmas, but sometimes my holiday cheer goes to Buddy the Elf proportions. I love all of the decorations, I love receiving Christmas cards in the mail, I love all the food that accompanies... Continue reading

The family that I nanny for is pretty awesome in every way. The mom has a pretty hilarious blog and the kids make me laugh constantly. Their 3 year old memorizes books. He can recite pages from most of the books he's been read, but there are a few that... Continue reading
