Packing for a Move

Now that we’re all “moved in,” I am beginning to think our belongings may have come alive in the Uhaul and rapidly multiplied. Somehow, everything fit into our old house and yet will NOT fit into our new, larger house. When we began the time-consuming process of packing up our house, I was determined to […]

Our House: Vol 20

Well, the master bathroom overhaul is officially complete.  Aside from some re-organization and final decorative touches, we’re all done with the house…for now.  The bathroom ended up taking about a full month to complete.  We started with a blank slate and the final product is more than I could have ever imagined. Here’s what we […]

Our House: Vol XIX (19)

So half of the renovation project is essentially finished.  We put a bow on the guest room last week and I was so excited to move the furniture back in and get everything put together. During the construction process, we’d moved the bed (mattress, box spring, head board, foot board), desk, and some other miscellaneous […]

Our House: Vol XVIII

Saturday and Sunday Mike and I were both off work so we got to pitch in and help.  My mom and I painted the guest room walls and trim with primer and I also tackled the ceiling. Mike, Tommy, and Kam worked on the plumbing for the bathroom. On Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, Mike and […]

Our House: Vol XVII

The last time my cousins were in town, Mike and I got a new kitchen.  It’s been about a year and a half since we made any major changes to our humble abode, but for the last 5 days my cousins Tommy and Kam have been hard at work helping us transform the house again. […]

Revamp your old lamp

So, part of the latest living room update was a little change in decor.  I really proved my blogger gumption and tested the heck out of my spray painting abilities.  Bloggers love spray paint. One of my favorite additions was this antique store find: I call him Sir Fidel.  I think he’s supposed to be […]

Living Room Makeover. Again.

So, Google Reader & GFC won’t exist here in a few days.  I’ve reluctantly migrated my feed to Bloglovin’ (nobody likes change…) so follow me there if you please!  I’ve posted quite a bit about our home through the ages.  It’s a work in progress.  We recently made some changes to the living room and […]

A wee bathroom reno

I get restless sometimes.  And that means the house gets changed.  I wanted to put a vanity in the small bathroom for more storage.  We found one at Lowe’s on sale and couldn’t argue with it.  We also picked up some shelving.  So now everything ugly is hidden away.  It’s not getting featured in Martha […]

A leetle gardeeen vol. 2

So it’s been about a month since I got the yard looking all fancified, and about a week ago the garden suffered its first casualties. I noticed that one of my lavender plants was not fairing well, and within the weeks that followed, all 5 of them slowly died. I don’t know whether I over watered […]

Dirty Laundry

Breaking from the wedding recaps. Before I bought a domain for this blog, my URL was AnnaHatesLaundry…and that is a literal take on the way I feel about laundry. I hate it.  And I’ll put off doing it for as long as possible. Thank goodness the amount of panties in my drawer is embarrassingly high. […]
