About Me

My photo
I try to be superwoman. I like iced cappuccinos, photography, design and being neat and tidy. My husband and I are homebodys - even though we've been together for 10 years, (married for three) our life is never boring. We have an almost two year old daughter who is the center of our world. Join us as we make our house a home and juggle parenthood for the first time.

New Washer & Dryer

I'm lucky enough to work for a company that allows me to get discounted appliances and electronics, so I have been taking full advantage of that lately! We did not have the luxury to inherit the previous owners washer/dryer so we had to buy new ones of our own. I was fine with that, since after having crappy washers/dryers for years in apartments and rental homes, a new pair would be lovely. Finally! Really clean clothes!

Spence wrecks havoc on his clothes because of his job. I have to wash his clothes separately and I usually have loads upon loads to do just between us two!

In comes our future washer/dryer - the GE Energy Star 4.0 Cu. Ft. King Size Capacity Frontload Washer and matching 7.0 Cu. Ft. Super Capacity Gas Dryer. This pair is one of our "Top 5" washer/dryers on our site/stores. It gets great reviews. We will be ordering it next week and have it delivered that Saturday. Ahhh...I can smell the Tide and Bounce right now....

Happy Almost Autumn!

I had the family over last weekend to help ring in the Fall season. We only moved in 2 weeks ago, but I was brave enough to cook a couple dishes from scratch and show the place off. Here is a few photos of our house decorated for Fall. Including the after photos of our living room!

Sevin is a star!

So not really house related, but I thought I would give my kitty, Sevin the spotlight over at the DIY Showoff. They are doing a pet parade over there and Sevin is there with his famous outstretched pose. Go Sev!

New desk

After being picky as can be about an office desk, I finally chose one last night at Office Max. It was between this one and other desk, but this one really appealed to me because of the stainless steel accents (hard to see) and the glass top, which I liked instead of the all wood. We have this color wood trim in the room, so it ties the black and wood together. I only paid $129 for it, much better than the $200 I was budgeting for. Spence will be putting this together tonight and hopefully I can get the in-house photo up soon.

Progress has been made!

Remember the living room before?

Icky walls, green crown molding...

Brass chandelier sconces from 1990....

New paint, new sconces, new couches! (I will have an updated photo for you soon - we painted the molding last night so it's not in this photo, plus a complete view of the whole room)

We made it!

We closed! Everything we pretty smoothly - we officially got the house last Thursday and moved in on Saturday with the help of 12 family members! So we've been homeowners for a week and I wouldn't have it any other way. What an amazing experience. Early Sunday morning I woke up and found myself staring outside at our sub cul-de-sac all peaceful and quiet. I couldn't believe we bought this place and feel so lucky in every aspect of our lives. Stay tuned for our after photos! We are trying to transform the place as quick as possible!
