Laundry room

When we moved in, redoing the laundry area was not on even on my radar. I mean, who really cares about the laundry closet in the basement? But when we found out the set that came with the house leaked requiring us to turn off the water between each load of laundry, it seemed like [...]

6 Things You Should Know Before You Buy a House

So - homeownership is no joke. There's the moving, and the unpacking, and the yard mowing, and the door locking (so many doors), and the trash days, and the painting, and the still unpacking, and the neighbors, and the not feeling like home, and the trying to live life while still, still unpacking. We've been [...]


Becoming a Mom

20 Weeks

I'm not sure that I'm actually considering this my first Mother's Day, more like my first unofficial Mother's Day since our little baby isn't quite here yet. But the holiday still makes me think about becoming a mom soon and how this time next year, it'll be official. Some people have asked why we rushed [...]

We finally made it into our new house this weekend! I do not know how we fit so much crap into a one bedroom apartment, but it was a two day event to move it all. And then yesterday instead of unpacking and organizing, I decided to paint the laundry room walls, trim and cabinets [...]

I hear a lot of people complain about how laundry is their least favorite chore to do, but honestly, it's my favorite. Why would I want to scrub at dirty dishes when I can knock out a huge mess by just throwing it into the washer/dryer and waiting for it to take care of itself? [...]

This is the big week we've been waiting for! We started the home buying process about 4 months ago and looked at at least 25 houses, then stuck out an usually long closing period and we are finally closing on and moving into our first home this week! What I want to be doing is [...]

melts my heart

I am not typically a mushy person. I love me a deep conversation, but not about feelings and all that uncomfortable stuff. But every time I look at this picture that is my absolute favorite at the moment, all I can think is that it melts my heart. I would never normally say anything near [...]

This has been a really good week for me. Maybe not a productive week, but a good one. But seriously, I cannot remember what a flat stomach feels like!!!! WILL I EVER KNOW AGAIN???? Last night Will got to feel the baby move for the first time (I may have had to prod it a [...]

Gender Neutral Nursery Ideas

To the dismay of almost everyone in our lives, we aren't finding out the gender of our baby. To me, I just can't imagine having a special moment in the doctors office the moment we find out whether it's a girl or a boy and I feel like I'd be forcing that "moment" to happen, [...]


20 Week Bumpdate

20 Weeks

Last Thursday marked the halfway point of our pregnancy, and I can't believe how fast it seems to be going! I have a feeling time will be slowing down soon, but luckily we have some other distractions coming up that might make time speed up again! We'll be moving into our new house in a [...]
