...they'd say, "If you and your husband can put up a gallery wall together and are both still speaking by the end of the day, you've come out a winner." Truth. I mean...it could have been worse. Nothing was thrown and all of the frames made it out alive. But, I can't s...

Happy Holidays all! Christmas chaos has officially come to an end, so I thought it was time to post an update on where we're at in our story entitled "Home Improvements That Never End." I'm lying here in my food/Prosecco coma, staring at our new mouldings in the living...

I'm embarrassed as to how long it's been since my last post. I forget what the first 6-8 weeks of school are like for a teacher. Oy. But the good thing is that I'm almost out of the woods of the busy fall school load, and back to some normalcy. 

The past few weekends ha...

Sorry it's been a while since my last post.  Once Phase 2 got started, I also went back to work.  Ah, the joys of teaching.  Those of you who are teachers out there can understand the sheer insanity of my last two weeks!  So here we are.  Classroom is set up, students...

Oh, well hello, Ms. Sloan....

From the point of our first meeting...our connection has been magical.

I had been eyeing the infamous chalk paint for quite some time.  Once we were in our new home, I knew it was time to take the plunge and start experimenting.  I did hours...

 I thought I'd take a break from the trials and tribulations of my own home for a week and write about this breathtaking home that I had the luxury of staying in recently.  The best thing about it is that I got to stay here with five other fabulous ladies.  What's bett...

They say the kitchen is the heart of the home.  I'd like to say it's the new living room.  Meals are created, loved ones come together, dance parties take place, etc.  So, in my opinion, you need to love this space.  Although there were so many things about our kitchen...

Does anyone else feel a euphoric joy once something in their home is organized/reorganized?  Or is this just my own twisted sickness?  I know there are others out there.  C'mon guys...the first step is admitting you have a problem.  When my belongings are in disarray,...
