A pantry makeover

Posted on January 19, 2017

It’s January which usually means to me it’s time for an organizing project and this time I’m taking on a pantry makeover! This past fall Erin and I were invited to participate in the One Room Challenge. We took on my family room, breakfast nook and kitchen. This is the kitchen after all that hard work. I’ve loved sharing our new space with friends and family and even hosting a few get togethers over the past couple months. But what didn’t get a makeover and what’s been my semi-hidden secret was my pantry. Outside it was pretty as a picture. Inside it was a total mess that made me cringe whenever I opened those cabinet doors and even more so when friends saw it – it was like getting caught with my holey undies on. Lucky for me Brenna of Domestic Charm invited me to join in an organizational blog hop …

Dinner and a movie at home

Posted on January 18, 2017

Once upon a time in a land far, far away my prince charming and I loved getting out for a romantic dinner followed by a night at the movies. It’s the quintessential date night and that’s exactly what we did on our first date. Ok maybe the dinner part didn’t quite work out that night (it’s a long story!) so instead we settled for diet cokes at McDonald’s. Not exactly the most romantic of first dates but we’ve been together a LONG time since then so something went right that night! These days the idea of getting out for dinner and a movie is mere fantasy. I honestly have no idea the last time we did both. Although I’d be in favor of occasional outings Mr. Man can’t quite stomach the idea of paying a babysitter to watch the kids while we sit, not talking, in a dark theater. I guess I can …

2017 design resolutions {Tricia}

Posted on January 11, 2017

  Happy New Year’s to all – hope you all enjoyed your holidays! “What?!?” you say  “the holidays are like so last year!” I know, I know, I’m late to the game – blame it on the kids. Our school district likes to torture parents by giving the kids an extra long winter break. Our kids only went back to school yesterday! I couldn’t move on to embracing the fresh start of 2017 while trying to keep 3 kids entertained and trying to keep the clutter even partially contained so I’m just now checking in with my 2017 design resolutions! Erin & I took a break from the blog to enjoy all that downtime with our families. Mr. Man & I went for low key this year: going nowhere & spending lots of time together and with the kids, a little time on the slopes, a few fun parties with friends. many, many movies, …

All I want for Christmas is….a new light fixture

Posted on December 23, 2016

Wow, I can’t believe we are so close to Christmas and putting 2016 to bed! I am really looking forward to Christmas this year, as we are going to surprise our kids with a new puppy! And after all that excitement wears off, I’ll be wondering why we decided to get a new puppy in the middle of winter. Every year I make the mistake of not acting as my own Santa Claus. I make sure that the kids and my husband get a visit from the man in red but never remember to pick something up for myself to put in my stocking. Are any of you in the same predicament? Well, today I’ve got an opportunity for you to get a new light to put in your stocking from Santa! I’m excited to share a giveaway for this pendant light from Bellacor:   How awesome would it be …
