Teeny Tiny Bedroom Update

In an effort to make our bedroom feel less like a room with a bed in it, and more like a bedroom, I did a little re-arranging of furniture, and hanging of random things on the wall.  It definitely feels more “homey” now,  but we still have a long way to go to make it…

Missing You

Let me start by saying that I very, very grateful to have a husband who does the absolute most that he can to take care of his family.  Byron sometimes works 50+ hours a week at his “day job” as a Database Analyst (I’m pretty sure I have his title wrong, actually.  I KNOW that…

What a Little Spray Paint Will Do For You

So, I did a little updating in the bathroom!  I painted over that awful green with the taupe/grey that we had originally chosen for the living room and then decided was too plain.  Which, in all honesty, it’s STILL a little too plain, even for the bathroom, but it’s better than the green, so for…

Baby Hair, Revisited

So, I don’t know if you guys remember, but Izzy used to look very…um…shaved.  For several months of her life, she seemed to be rocking the “hair on one side, none on the other” look, because when she got sleepy (and in her sleep as well) she would scrub her head into whatever she could,…

Dear 1bdrm Apartment

Early this morning, I turned in our gate openers and keys, and said goodbye to you.  I walked through one last time, remembering all of times we shared, good and bad. I’m sure you don’t care.  After all, with just a few coats of paint, you’ll be ready for your next tenant.  For me though,…

Shade-y

Today marks day 10 of owning a house.  And I feel SO at home! I love it!  But you wanna know something I was not loving? This: Our temporary, hasty window covering, made of shop towels and painters tape.  This was thrown up the first night at the house, when we realized how creepy the…

Amatuer Artist, Impatient Sewer

Or is there a word that’s lower than amateur on the spectrum? If so, I need that one!  In my ongoing attempt to make Izzy’s room rival her in cuteness, I did some artwork for her room.  Realistically, it looks like it was done by a child, but that’s not so bad, I guess.  I…

Pom Poms Project

(FYI, I tried my best to give this post a cutesy title, like “Pom-Padour” or “Pom-Pom it Up!” but they all sounded so corny that I got embarrassed, so you get a boring, literal post title) I can’t remember where I first saw the idea of doing the pom poms in the nursery or babies…
