Last week I posted about my Thrift Store Challenge. If you missed it, go check it out and see what I was up to.  It was SUCH a hit, I think I’m going to make it a monthly thing!! One of the things I bought with my $20 budget, were these 4 mismatched 8×10 picture ...

Thrift Store Challenge

Thrift Store Challenge
So, I’m a super competitive person. I chase challenges and stop at nothing to win. I am constantly challenging myself. I even challenge myself to challenge myself. Winning is almost everything to me. If I’m not winning, I usually quit because it isn’t fair. I want to say I’m kidding. I do. So, if you ...

Kitchen Update: Awkward Corner

Kitchen Update: Awkward Corner
Yay for a kitchen update! I hate living with a half done kitchen. It’s making me batty. I’ll take the progress though. Slowly but surely, we’re getting there. When we ripped out the peninsula, it left this awkward corner next to the fridge. There was white tile that went halfway down the wall, but I ripped ...

Hooks Hooks & More Hooks!
Did you know the more times you type the word “hooks” the weirder it looks? I feel like I’m not spelling it right. Anyway. I really love hooks.

Why I think You’re An Awesome Mom!

Why I think You’re An Awesome Mom!
It’s no news that life is hard sometimes. We already know that much. But it gets especially tricky when you’re caught in situations that cause you to question your abilities. Specifically Motherhood. Last night I was faced with a scenario that left me questioning everything I’ve ever done as a Mother. Every choice. Every moment. ...

DIY Kitchen Island

DIY Kitchen Island
Phase 2 of the kitchen remodel is complete. The Island is officially DONE. If you remember from phase 1 we ripped out the big peninsula and ended up salvaging half of it to use as the base of the island. This saved lots of money! We stood in the lumber isle at Lowe’s for 45 ...

Vintage Funnel Light Fixture

Vintage Funnel Light Fixture
In the midst of this massively overwhelming kitchen remodel, I’ve been scouring Pinterest for inspiration for the new light fixtures. Prior to starting this project, we had 2 main overhead lights that aren’t centered in the room….at all. I don’t understand them and they make me angry.. And they turn everything yellow when they’re on. ...
