Hi everyone! If you remember back to last year, Mother’s Day was our first gathering in the house since we officially moved in and I took my mom’s request for fried chicken seriously. I made 3 versions for the different eaters in our family, vegetarian (soy milk buttermilk tofu), GF/DF chicken and classic….
Wow! It’s been FOREVER! Sorry about that. Life gets in the way sometimes…since my last update I have officially made the career leap from Marketing Research Consultant to…INTERIOR DESIGNER! I’m loving every day of it so far and am really happy with my decision to follow my gut and move to something that will allow […]
Dear readers, I would like to invite you to visit the basement of our (not so) Little House on a Hill. The picture below does NOT do it any justice as this is after we cleaned it to make it more presentable for our inspection. See those shelves in the right hand corner? They weren’t […]
I’ve always loved green, just ask my mom. In high school, we re-did my bedroom to remove the nursery style wallpaper and mint green carpet that had been there since we moved in and I promptly requested painting my room a bright green. We struck a compromise when I agreed to paint one of the […]
Well, I’m REALLY late on this post but what the heck, life (aka work) gets in the way of the things we want to do sometimes. We hosted our first family gathering complete with homemade fried chicken (per my mom’s request) and other deliciousness for Mother’s Day in May and I was super excited to […]
Hi everyone! It’s been a while 🙂 Life has gotten a bit crazy as my day job has gotten super busy which makes blogging on a fairly regular basis difficult. But summer is here! And with that comes a bit more time to do stuff we want to do…well…hopefully…at least that’s the goal, right? I’m going to […]
Plans are important when you’re doing a renovation, but as I’ve been told in the past “planning is everything but plans are nothing” (or something like that). Our plan for the last week was to bang out the framing and trimming of the windows (at least the upstairs ones) so that we could bring our […]
It’s kind of surreal, and feels super weird, but we officially did it. We moved in to our (not so little) House on a Hill this weekend! 🎉🍾🥂 It’s hard to believe that the husband and I bought our first house less than a year ago with this crazy idea and here we are. It […]
So I was going to wait until we installed the pulls to give you all a peek at the cabinets and our gorgeous new counter tops but I simply cannot wait any longer. The counter tops have arrived and I am officially OBSESSED. And did I mention that we installed the cabinet fronts too?? The husband and I still have a lot of work to do in the kitchen (install the toe-kick, attach all of the pulls, install the vent hood, trim the window, tile the back splash, install sconce over the sink/window, attach the island to the floor and finish the body of it, find a counter top for the island….the list keeps going trust me) but it is an incredible feeling to have the room that I’ve been dreaming about for so long finally start functioning as it should.
