‘Round House

July 12, 2013

Remember that show? I never liked it. I much preferred Clarissa and Are You Afraid Of The Dark! I’ve been working on our house lately and we’ve changed a few things. Since I am more obsessed with houses than I am oatmeal (surprise!), I wanted to share : ) First, we had to get a […]

Around The House

April 29, 2013

Our new Young House Love light! From the Shades of Light collection. Before we had a man in a sombrero at the foot of our basement stairs. After […]

Last weekend Matt and I tackled a home improvement project: painting our master bedroom. We also rearranged the furniture for a whole new look. When we moved into our house, we had it painted Benjamin Moore Veranda View. And I have hated the color ever since! We didn’t get a chance to test the green […]
