Happy Valentine’s Day!
We celebrated this Valentine’s Day by having Bill’s twin’s family over and our sister-in-law’s sister and her husband over. Yikes. That reads really complicated! How about we had a family Valentine’s celebration, better? We served salami peperoncino rollups and crudites for our appetizers and for […]
I’ve been beating myself up a bit for not having *more* done around the house so I decided to take some updated pictures and post them to Pinterest so I can appreciate, from afar, how much I HAVE done. The office is my next victim!
Formal Living Room/Dining Room Progress + Christmas Decor!
We’ve made great strides on the formal living room combo!
Family Room Updates

Florida Room Updates
Our Florida room is finally nearing completion. We’ve added lined bamboo blinds, curtains, end tables, lamps, ottomans, chairs, a sofa with new pillows, bamboo trees, and a ceiling fan. I’d eventually like to replace the chairs and get a rug but we’re very close to […]
Almost Closing Time
We did our walk through this past Friday and will close on our house this Friday, March 29th. I’m beyond excited and can’t wait to start unpacking and creating our new home! I haven’t really felt at home in our townhouse for about 6 months […]
