Office and Laundry Room Update

Back in August we decided to update our laundry room/storage area and turn it into a functional office space for the Mister and a much more comfortable laundry room for myself.  This area is accessed by going out of our house into our carport and then there is a little room off the carport.  It's been cold and ugly and dirty...not exactly the place you'd like to be doing laundry or working, right? Here is a little reminder of what we did to the room in August. And here ...continue reading

Laundry Horror to Laundry Haven

We live in a 1960's ranch house.  Evidently when they built my house noone thought it was important to put the laundry room inside the house.  Instead they thought it would be fun to put it in a storage room off the carport.  So yes,  I have been known to run half naked out to the laundry room to grab a pair of jeans that are still in the dryer...you know you do it to!

Listen To Your Own Advice…I Must Confess

So I must confess,  I had a bit of meltdown with a good friend this week.  I was feeling overwhelmed with all the life changes going on here at my house.  I wouldn't consider myself an over achiever in motherhood but I do like to accomplish what goals I set for myself. This week however, I've felt a bit like I was chasing my own life.  My 8 year old told me that all she wanted for her birthday was poppyseed chicken...a dinner favorite. Which means I haven't made it in ...continue reading
