As I mentioned in my previous post, David and I are having a little girl!
I’m due May 27th, and I’ve been working away at creating a sweet little nursery for her.Read more
It’s been busy busy busy around here. We have had lots of personal things happening, as well as house projects. I’m sorry I haven’t been actively blogging frequently lately, but hopefully you’ll accept my explanation and apology.
In the personal department, here are the 3 big things that have kept me away from the ole’ blog:
1 We went on a FAT trip to Germany, France, and a little bit of ItalyRead more
We. Have. Termites.
Well, we HAD termites. We got rid of them. After six months of living in our new home, we broke into a wall and discovered that there was nothing there but chewed, flaky, termite-damaged wood behind it. Terrifying. The previous home owners didn’t disclose damage, and our inspector didn’t catch it. Did we panic? YES! How could everyone have missed this massive issue? Did the previous owners really not know? Did we hire a bunk inspector? How bad is the damage? Are the termites still alive? How much was this going to cost? What do we do next?

I don’t know about you, but sometimes I just gotta create something fun. It’s like this itch that I have to scratch. My day job as an event planner is pretty cool, but it doesn’t always let me get my creative juices flowing. I swear I was meant to be an artist. So with all of that being said, all I wanted for my Earth Day Birthday was to have a whole day where I got to play my jams and create something grand/bold/beautiful/different and just get lost in the process of making. And my sweet sweet David was happy make my birthday wish come true and arrange everything for me. He said he would be my “design assistant” and help with whatever I needed to make my artistic vision happen. So here’s what we did:
Welcome to our photo-heavy post of all the improvements we have made on our little slice of the great outdoors AKA our backyard. Before we dive into it, let’s kick things off with some establishing B&A shots:Read more
We’ve had the stock tank pool up and running for almost a month now, and we’ve had people ask us how’s it going. There’s a few things we’ve learned along the way, and a few things we would change:
