Command Hooks for the win!

I can't believe I forgot to share this simple storage solution with you guys. This is from our last house in Austin before we moved to Denver (oh man, I miss that kitchen!). I took some command hooks and stuck them inside the cabinet where I store the kitchenaid mixer. Now I can hang all the attachments so I can easily find them yet they are out of the way. Do you have any really amazing storage solutions for your kitchen? I'd love to hear them! … [Read more...]

Painting the Formal Living Room – the process

This house is starting to come together! I painted the formal living room. yay! Every time I paint a room the house feels a little bit more like *my* home. There's something about moving into someone else's house, living with their colors, then painting over those old colors that really makes you feel like it's actually your house. I made a fun video of me painting the living room - with a broken wrist and all! If you can't watch the video (you are missing out!) here are the before and after pics. I don't have any process pictures, only the process video. … [Read more...]

Hey everyone! Merry belated Christmas! I hope you had a great holiday. We spent lots of time baking, spending time with friends, prepping for Christmas, snowboarding, and getting stuff done around the house. Speaking of getting stuff done around the house... We finally mounted our TV in the living room. It was quite the hot mess last time you saw it: This is a screen grab from my House Tour video because believe it or not I didn't have a single photo of the tv propped up on a desk in front of our fireplace. I'm guessing it was subconscious avoidance on my part because I never want to … [Read more...]

Replacing the dishwasher

We have officially been living in Colorado for 4 months now! We have made so many friends here and have integrated so well within the community that I feel like we've lived here for years. Also, we've officially been on the mountain snow boarding 8 times so far. We couldn't be happier living in the beautiful state of Colorado. I could be happier about my dishwasher situation though... I'll be honest, I'm not in love with this kitchen. I left an amazing custom kitchen in Texas that I just finished and now am back to a basic kitchen with several broken cabinets and some seriously … [Read more...]

We love our Beddy’s bedding

Over the past few weeks I've shown you guys my son's and daughter's bedrooms. They both are sporting some new super cute bedding. I promised to give you more details about the bedding, so today I'm doing just that! Both of these bedding sets are called Beddy's Before I get too deep into this post, I want to be very clear... I paid for both of these bedding sets. I purchased them through the website like any other person would, and I paid full price for them. I was introduced to Beddy's from a few other blogs who wrote posts about them. As soon as I first saw them, I … [Read more...]
