I think it's safe to say that the one eyesore in our house was the office. Really, I spend the most time in it and it's my domain. It didn't know what it wanted to be other than vanilla walls and a really bad paint job coupled with horrible blue carpet with stains from the kids and muddy feet. It was slightly maddening but it wasn't a priority...until now.Read More
Summer is in full swing and I couldn’t be happier. Summer means more outside time and more family time. No matter how much time we spend outside, everyone, myself included, needs a moment to themselves. I call it “quiet time” and I’ve trained my girls to take an hour everyday.Read More

Something unique, whimsical and practical. Those are generally good traits to have in your gift-giving abilities. More importantly, something to remember you by - after all, we want that second and third invitation back to the fun couple's house.Read More
The Money Pit Series is back! This round is all about my baby turned big girl. Lola finally kicked her crib to the curb and upgraded to this bright, whimsical bed that our entire family just adores.
We now gravitate to her room because of the warmth her room evokes. It's amazing what a bed does for a little girl. Lola is so proud of her room that she actually wanders upstairs when no one is noticing just to sit and read books. Something that really warms a parent's heart, I tell ya.Read More
