Master Bathroom Tour


A reader’s recent question made me realize that I hadn’t yet shared pictures of our bathroom space, nor our renovated bathroom from the old house (more on that another day)! I had just cleaned our master bathroom and took advantage of it to snap some pictures.

We’ve Been Blessed

  His Story: Contractions started around 5 am on Sunday, about 10 minutes apart. They continued throughout the day, but slowed down at times. We took care of some things around the house, played with Lily, and took it easy. My parents came over halfway through the Hawks game in case I needed to go in during the night, and they could watch Lily. It seemed like after they got to our … [Read More...]

Yes, I am writing this post at 3:21am. I can’t sleep (but I’m about to go try again…) Looking for a good picture for Christopher and Tia’s Flashback Friday, I wanted to pick something that a.) wasn’t of our house, b.) wasn’t of crafts/decorating, or c.) wasn’t of Lily (no offense, Lily).

When to Pick the Rhubarb?

Simple post, simple question… Remember when you identified the rhubarb growing in my hard back in this post back in March? I found out from the previous owner that the rhubarb plants growing in randomly chosen places throughout my yard are over 50 years old and were there way before they bought the house! Very cool… Well, when do I pick these bad boys? This is the one in my front yard, … [Read More...]

Hot Dog Shaped Hamburgers

What do you do when you start making burgers but then realize you are OUT of hamburger buns? You could go bun-less, or just use bread (bleh), but if you have hot dog buns, you’re in luck! This isn’t a tried and true recipe, just something I came up with on the fly last night. First, I shaped a pound of ground beef into hot dog-gy shapes, trying not to make it TOO thick and keeping in mind that … [Read More...]
