Finished the Living Room

Yesterday was wonderful weather to paint, so we took the time to finish up the living room. Our curtains are finally back up and the toys are back under control.

We Finally Have a Headboard!

Our headboard finally arrived! It took twelve weeks but it was totally worth the wait. Yes, that’s a toddler on the bed. He’s showing off his amazing cuteness skills. It’s difficult to see, even with a well lit picture, but the headboard has a bookshelf built in. I’m looking forward to decorating it. I bought… Continue reading We Finally Have a Headboard!

It was certainly no emergency to move him into a bigger home but I also didn’t expect it to take… Continue reading Giving My Cactus Some Love

Spring Cleaning

Better late than never, right? I finally got a chance to start Spring Cleaning today in earnest. I’ve been doing bits and pieces but I had been avoiding any major undertakings until today. Today I tackled our mud room and coat closet. I always underestimate how much work it is to pull everything out, organize it,… Continue reading Spring Cleaning
