Let me start by throwing out this disclaimer:  I am in no way a ‘trendy’ dresser.  I tend to wear classic pieces that don’t really go out of style.  That being said…I think I have an alright sense of style!  I’m slightly ashamed but also proud to say I’m still wearing some clothes I bought […]

I painted our dining room yesterday and am so excited to share the pictures! Before I painted I had some boring prep work to do…I had to remove all the trim (we are replacing it anyways) and patch the awful holes in the wall.  I will admit that it felt pretty good doing that work […]

technical difficulties…

It’s been a while since I posted because I’ve been having problems uploading pictures to my blog.  I’m not sure how to fix it but I’m working on it! I have a whole bunch of new pictures I really want to show everyone, but for now I will just post some plain old words.  This […]
