Christmas Tour {Part 2}


Happy Friday! I am beyond thrilled to say those words ‘cause it’s been a loooong week. I’m super happy to be a part of Lindsay’s Christmas tour, and I’m glad I get to update you on some of the decorating around here. Of course, now that that’s done, I have to decorate for a cookie decorating party I’m hosting tomorrow. I know—glutton for punishment. If you’re coming from Roeshel at DIY Showoff, … [Read more...]

Flooring Woes


I don't even know where to begin with this one. Remember when Maximus almost died, and I was all, "Oh…that's sad. I'm so glad he's alive!"? So that wiped out our bank account. Yay.

Home Tour

SaS in Review


Is there some quick way I can re-link all 200+ projects I saw? Wow! Just amazing, girls. Things are settling back to “normal”, so I am thankful that I can finally show some off! Here we go… Oh, Texas Cottage. Why did you have to link up this recipe? My hips thank you. And so does my son who saw me posting about this! Well, it’s that time of year again. I’m not going to talk about it … [Read more...]
