There was a point when we were scared of Hurricane Florence–that point where the hurricane was forecast to be category 5 making landfall directly on our house. In the end, she came onshore as a massive storm that caused major flooding and annoyance for all of us — food shortages, traffic, logistical nightmares, and goingContinue reading “Day 01: Moving In”
Last year, I posted about how I was going to decorate the nursery, but i never got around to posting the finished room. The room is ALMOST finished, but it’s definitely time to show it off. (Still left to do — new floors below the carpet, a couple of pieces of artwork, and crown molding.)Continue reading “Our Nursery (finally)”
The first step to our nursery renovation was moving the guest room. We’re keeping most of the guest room furniture in the nursery (the two dressers anyway), but there just wasn’t room for the full-sized bed component of the bedroom suite. I’ve also been rearranging a lot of the books on the bookcases in ourContinue reading “Guest Room Revisited”
I participated in a gift exchange recently on a board for moms due in September of 2016, and I ended up getting matched with a mom who loved JRPG’s (Japanese role playing games). I made her some onesies for her little guy featuring iron-ons from two games. (Rob, my husband, helped me pick out goodContinue reading “Moogle and Teddie Onesies”
I have a confession to make. Way before we were even trying to get pregnant, I started buying things for our future nursery. I knew I always wanted to make a beautiful space for a baby that was gender neutral in terms of color and elements after seeing Jeong Mee Yoon’s Pink and Blue ProjectContinue reading “Nursery Decoration Time”
I have a huge closet of clothes that I never wear. I’ve also filled at least two other closets with clothes in my house that are either 1) out of season or 2) have been pre-purged into a sort of clothing purgatory between my main closet and the eBay/charity pile. It’s going to take someContinue reading “Wardrobe Challenge”
Rob and I never lived together before we got married, and when we finally did get married and move in together, we had a lot of fun playing Rock Band (the video game). We named our band in the game Flesh Eating Champagne, and the name has stayed with us since. When we need toContinue reading “The Only Team I Need: Flesh Eating Champagne”
After running in three 5Ks, a 10K, two 15Ks, and two half marathons, it was time to make a display for all of our race paraphernalia. I checked out Pinterest and Etsy for precedents, and finally made these two boards for us. The total cost was pretty cheap! We bought the two wood plaques atContinue reading “Putting the Hard-Earned Medals on Display!”
The perfect refresher for post 13.1 mile runs!
When I began running, I think I did what a lot of people do. I pulled on some clothes I found around the house, laced up the most decent sneakers I had in the closet, and went out for week 1, day 1 of couch to 5K training. That was May 1, 2014. I ranContinue reading “My Favorite Running Gear: Sports Bras with Pockets, Running Tights, and the Basis Peak”
View this Course on MapMyFitness This is my least favorite circle to run in Windjammer Village. The hill…. Now it’s a course, so everyone can do it and compete!
It’s Champagne Thursday doggie style!
Over a year ago (3/13/12), I began my laundry room renovation project. As you can see from the first post, the room was in dire need of work! I’m excited to say that this project is well underway, and though it’s not quite complete, we are almost at the end. (I’ve made some after/before picturesContinue reading “Laundry Room Renovation: Almost There!”
I finally got around to rewiring a vintage lamp I bought from etsy. I love the white rainbow. I was tired of the brass lamp kits available locally at Home Depot/Lowe’s, so I bought this Jandorf Make a Lamp Kit (60139) in a pewter finish on Amazon. Here’s another (very dark) picture of the lampContinue reading “Rewired Vintage Rainbow Lamp”
