“HEY YOU GUUUYS!” Yeah, The Goonies. You’ve gotta love The Goonies, people. Like, seriously – don’t tell me you don’t, I’ll just be bummed. And if you tell me you like paying your cable/satellite bill every month, I’ll know you’re just a liar 😉 Nah, na na na: we ditched cable and still watch everything!!! […]

Guys! Here she is: “Transitional Kitchen Renovation After.” Cue the trumpets! Haha We’ve been at this whole thing for a long, long time. She’s done, she’s beautiful, we are overjoyed – yes, not exaggerating.  Totally over-freaking-joyed.

Hey guys! How’s your weekend starting out? I’m finally getting back into the groove, and hopefully I can crank out all the material I’ve been imagining for the last couple weeks before it completely escapes me.  Lucky you! So I requested a master bedroom closet for my birthday this year, since it’s been about seven that […]

Hey, hey, hey! How was your weekend? I’m sitting here, Sunday night – exhausted but content, listening to the Arizona Cardinals game in the background, drinking a glass of wine, smelling the Christmas tree and the holiday scented candle burning away, smiling at our snoring puppy.  It has been a pretty fantastic weekend, and I’m feeling […]
