I have been sick for the better part of two months. I won’t gross you out with the details but it has to do with female reproductive internal organs not acting the way they are supposed to act and causing problems with my digestive system, namely Collin, The Colon. I can’t leave my house for…… Continue reading Yuck!
I am a list maker. Every morning I get my coffee and sit down at the kitchen table and write out what I would like to accomplish today. I also have a notebook that I keep a running list of projects I would like to do around the house. I am a few days behind…… Continue reading March To Do List
November 1st: Tanner turns 13! He isn’t so little anymore. He’s taller than me and didn’t ask for toys. He wanted CASH MONEY and a fleece jacket with full zipper! Oh… and I made the fleece jacket he is wearing. This cake was a disaster! I made it from scratch and the cake part I…… Continue reading I haven’t posted since November… so get comfy!
I had repressed this incident in my life until this morning. The garage door has had a terrible screeching sound for the past 2 weeks and this morning I decided to fix it with a little WD-40. While standing on the ladder, I had a flashback to this post. I was so disgusted with the…… Continue reading The Garage Door Fiasco
I think my aversion to ironing has to do with the cover. It’s old, ugly and stained. Blue tick cloth is just not my thing. I had looked at covers in the past but just couldn’t make myself pay $20-25 for a cheapy designer looking cover. While at the thrift store the other day, I…… Continue reading New Ironing Board Cover from a Thrifted Sheet

They wobble around, get…… Continue reading Still in the kitchen
When we bought this house 3 years ago, the kitchen looked like this… Yes. That is a red wall and extends all the way down into the living room. The cabinets are the cheap builder grade cabinets that were installed in the house in 1980 when it was built. GOLD, yes gold, not almond, countertops…… Continue reading Kitchen Makeover
I purchased this cabinet at the Salvation Army Thrift Store for $10. I forgot to take a photo of the before, sorry. It was beat up, scratched and just dull 1970’s looking, but made of solid wood and very sturdy. I have been looking at black accessory pieces for a long time to compliment the…… Continue reading Thrift Store Cabinet
Our house needs some work. Not major work, but aesthetically pleasing work. You know, simple things like painting the shutters and garage door. We had been planning to do this little project for quite some time and since I had some free time, I thought now would be as good a time as any to…… Continue reading Sometimes You Are Just DESTINED To Fail
