Master Bedroom

So the master bedroom in our house had an interesting color scheme, there was a teal wall color and a royal blue carpet, and we definitely knew that we wanted to make some changes. As you can see from the pictures below, the room is big but with an odd shape. The first thing to go was the carpet. The fun part was ripping the carpet up! As is often the case, destroying something is easier than creating something (insert deep philosophical thought here).  We used a box cutter to cut the carpet into manageable sizes, rolled these portions up … Continue reading Master Bedroom

Leftover mashed potatoes..

So Monday I made mashed potatoes, green beans and chicken. Everything was going well until I used the wrong side of the pepper dispenser, resulting in WAY too much pepper in the mashed potatoes.

Well thankfully the man I married has that handy man instinct.  He loves to be able to do everything himself, and when we bought our first home in January 2014, we realized that we both really enjoyed taking on different projects and renovations together. … Continue reading New House, New Projects!

My life, My Story

I can say right now that I am not sure how this blogging thing is going to work out, but I am cautiously optimistic that my writing skills aren’t terrible and that my blogs might be at least entertaining.  I feel that there are so many things that I would love to share. I know that I enjoy reading other people’s blogs and learning about their life and I hope some might like to read mine. So here goes nothing…I am your average American girl, I was raised in a christian home in Central Jersey (woot woot!) I am the … Continue reading My life, My Story
