A Sneak Peek and Two Couches

Now stay with me and keep an open mind but I thought I'd share a picture of our living room/family room of the house we're going to be closing on this month.  It's probably not going to wow you but I hope when I'm done it will! We learned quickly that houses are very different in Nevada than in Indianapolis.  There is lots of stucco, not much grass in the yard and very little character.  The houses are mainly new…

Every year after Christmas I like to decorate my mantel.  I seem to change it in the fall and for Christmas but I'm not one to really change it for the other holidays.  I've learned as much as I might like cute holiday decorating for other people (honestly I do) I personally don't do cute.

My daughter had a volleyball lesson yesterday morning so after I dropped her off I decided to drive by the old neighborhood. (It's a few blocks from where I dropped Sloan off.) I haven't driven by our old house in…

The Fireplace Reveal!!

The fireplace was the most excited I have gotten over all the projects we've worked on since we moved into our house last year, it was also the one I couldn't wait to finish!  I've talked about it before but the previous owners sorta have me perplexed, they spent lots of money on certain things (the appliances, thank you) and spent virtually nothing on other things (the fireplace and masterbath).  I think this was the reason some people were put…
