Happy Saturday! This weekend is a pretty chill one around here, which I’m really looking forward to. We’re planning on doing a TRX class together this morning, some small things around the house, and hopefully a hike. Today I’m sharing all about re-planting our front bed. When we moved in the bed was pretty sad. Actually, upon first glance you couldn’t tell quite how bad it was. (click to see the before and afters!)Read More
Happy (long) weekend, friends! I’m so excited for this 3-day weekend - it’s just what I needed. And to be honest, I’m excited to mark the transition to fall. Labor Day always feels like the unofficial end to Summer, but I’m okay with it. I’m ready for cooler temps and this may be controversial, but longer nights too.Read More
A couple weeks ago we posted about the design process for our new deck and today we’re talking about how we built it! Xan wrote this overview of the process, but because there’s so much to include it’s more an overview of the process and some tips and tricks we learned along the way. If you have specific questions feel free to include them in the comments. We should, of course, note that it’s important to talk to an expert in your area about your particular situation as it may be different from ours.Read More
Happy Saturday! We skipped our Fourth of July post - we were busy getting ready for and hosting a party and spending time with friends and family. It was basically an extra long weekend and it was just what I needed. It included parties with friends, celebrations of babies, movie dates, and long naps. Perfection!Read More
We’re currently knee deep in the kitchen renovation and things are really starting to come together. We’re working on a lot of the little finishing touches, and we’ve had some issues with the tile that we’re trying to solve now. So, I’m not really sure when we’ll be totally finished. The latest project we worked on was our under cabinet lighting (for the upper cabinets). For some reason we both thought this was going to be a piece of cake. The instructions and all of the parts seemed very simple, but we still encountered some issues that could have been easily avoided knowing what we do now that they’ve all been installed. So, below are my tips for installing Ikea under cabinet lighting.
Well, it’s been a while since I was last here with a kitchen update. And let me tell you, we’ve made so much progress!Read More
