‘A Mom’s Guide to Home Organization’ Review

‘A Mom’s Guide to Home Organization’ Review

Raise your hand if one of your new years resolutions (every year) is to declutter and organize your home? Well, me too. As I’m working on a review of my goals post, I realize how little I got done this year (being a new mom who works full time will do that to you) so I was thrilled to have a chance to read and review a book on home organization. I received the book in exchange for my honest review. What I liked about : This book contains some practical ideas that are simple to implement but would really […]

Moving is Hard, at Least You Can Save on Utilities

Moving is Hard, at Least You Can Save on Utilities

Are you getting ready to move into a new home? When we moved into our new house, wow almost 2 years ago now, we stayed with our former providers since we were under contract and were still happy with our services. But it would have been nice to have a chance to shop around and see if we were able to get a good deal. One thing that is great about being a new customer is you can get the new customer deal. This usually lasts about a year, but then the rates tend to go up once that promotional […]

DIY Stone Fireplace Bumper #Babyproofing

DIY Stone Fireplace Bumper #Babyproofing

We have a lovely stone fireplace in our living room, but it stopped being lovely when we realized our little one could really hurt himself if he fell on it. So my awesome hubby came up with a great DIY project to construct a bumper, and I helped a bit! Of course, he did all the hard work, I just helped hold the boards together and pick out the fabric. And take pictures along the way. Because #blogging. We started with measuring the fireplace (measure twice, cut once!) and gathering our supplies. We needed several two by fours, and of […]

Spring Cleaning Your Home Office – Tips and To Do List

Spring Cleaning Your Home Office – Tips and To Do List

One of my goals for 2015 is to organize my home, to include our home office. We have a room with a big lovely desk and yet everything is still in boxes in the closet from our move (which was over a year ago). Since spring is finally upon us, and the baby is no longer a newborn, it might be time to get going on those goals and work some organization and spring cleaning into my life. Below is my plan aka to-do list aka wishlist (because let’s be honest, I need a wife to help me get all […]

Kitchen Cabinet Hardware Update Project

Kitchen Cabinet Hardware Update Project

  The hardware on the kitchen cabinets that came with our house when we bought it had to go. Sure, it was cool looking and modern and very sharp. Unfortunately, that last part was literally. If you brush up or lean up against them, ouch! After multiple bruises on my hips and scrapes on my hands from using my kitchen normally, I had enough. Hubby even said that the hardware on the island is perfectly positioned to attempt to keep us from having any future children. So in an effort to start child-proofing and help ourselves not have any more […]

The new house!

The new house!

We closed on the new house on Monday, January 27th. Since then we’ve been busy packing up everything in our current house and getting ready for the move. We got the power turned on first, and the water finally turned on yesterday. The gas is being turned on today. The painter is coming this weekend. We already have about half of our stuff moved. I have really really awesome friends. Here’s why: last weekend my friend with a 4-horse trailer volunteered herself and her boyfriend to help us move our big furniture! So last weekend they came over and my […]

Happy 2014, Let’s Catch Up

Happy 2014, Let’s Catch Up

I have been really busy with a whole lot of different things, and haven’t been keeping up with posting here as often as I would like. I blame the Book Blog.  But also, some major changes are happening. So let’s catch up. 1. Hubby came back! So as you can imagine, life has completely changed. I missed him a lot, but I got used to having the house to myself (and the pets). Now there’s someone around who hasn’t been around for almost a year, and we both have some adjusting to do. I took a week off work when […]
