Easy as 1, 2, 3
A few weeks ago I came across a great deal on Group Dealz.....1,2,3 vinyl decals from one of my favorite bloggers, The House of Smiths' vinyl shop, Wonderfully Wordy. And considering my love of all things number related, I hate to jump on the deal! I was so excited when they arrived in the mail. I stuck them on my Ikea canisters and love how great ... Read More
This and that on a Monday
Happy Monday! It's time for a random post for sure. It seems like Monday always comes to quickly....I have all of the projects I want to work on over the weekend but I blink and it's over. This weekend the husband participated in a 26 mile bike race...and shaved 6 minutes off of his time from last year! It was really cold on race day, so I ... Read More
Bathroom Design….I need your help!
Okay, so as you know the husband and I are in the process of remodeling our bathroom. We finally made it out to the tile shop yesterday. Most of these places close at 5:00 and are only open a few hours on Saturday....which has made things take a little longer. Here is my design inspiration. I love this bathroom! The floor is gorgeous, but crazy ... Read More
Go to the mattresses….and other random happenings
I guess "go to the mattresses" means I'm ready for a war. But really I'm not. Unless it's a war against these mattresses because I would be so all over that. A few months ago my mom was up here visiting and we stumbled upon a great deal on queen sized mattresses at Costco. So she snatched two of them up for her new lake house. They've been ... Read More
Easter Candy….It Gets Me Every Time….
I love Easter candy. Big time. I have a huge sweet tooth can't control myself. I really must be stopped. I know some people hate peeps but I love them. They are my favorite. My husband even got me some for Valentine's day. But I only really like the yellow ones. Bunny Basket Eggs are another favorite. I've learned I can only eat 2 or 3 ... Read More
In the last few days I've received some sweet surprises from friends and family. What would I do without such great people in my life? My cousin Jamie sent me season 4 of Dexter since she knows I'm obsessed! Thanks Jamie! I've already finished the first disc. I heart me some Dexter. Just last night my Aunt Linda in Missouri sent me a mason ... Read More
Simple curtain switch up
When we moved into our house we had zero window treatments. No blinds, no shades, and no curtains. So we needed a quick solution and these simple white curtains seemed to work fine. (and yes, that is snow outside...winter is still hanging around our house). But something about them always bugged me. They were never quite right. And then one ... Read More
Twisted Roosters and Dog Toys….Or the most random post ever.
Why is it that the one hour time change gets me every time? It felt like Sunday flew by and my whole day was thrown out of whack. The only good thing about springing forward is that I was able to walk Wrigley at 7:00 last night and it wasn't pitch black. This weekend was pretty low key at our house. We are still waiting on a few bids to come in ... Read More

In my mind I can picture just what I want, but am having a little trouble describing it! Below are some of my design inspirations.Love love love the clean look of this bathroom. It's ... Read More
