Whatever

I’m way behind on blogging. I’m like the worst blogger ever. But my husband and kids think I’m a pretty good wife and mom and we’ve been having a great summer, so whatever. No regrets. “But what about the bathroom?” you say. “Are they EVER going to finish?” you ask. Nope. We never are. We …

Green Vanity

This really is the first house we’ve owned where I wasn’t thinking about resale or appealing to the mass of renters when making design decisions. That’s not to say that I don’t think about resale every second of every day 😉 , but it isn’t always my driving force here. What better place to take …

I Stole That Thing!

I had high hopes of posting a couple of times per week throughout summer and blew it right out of the gate. We had a little day camp thingy every day last week, followed by VBS in the evenings. I also had all of my nephews a couple of days and an extra friend on …

It was difficult, y’all.  I’ll be back in the coming days/weeks to show you that, but today I’m talking more about the classroom and GG room. Nothing major was …

Anger Management?

I’m tired y’all. We’ve been doing school earlier than usual (we’re not morning people around here) so that we can get to the house by late afternoon. (It’s a long drive from Edmond to East Norman! Can’t believe we bought that house and lived in it when the hubs worked up here.) It’s only Wednesday …

A Moment of Silence

Let us all take a moment of silence. The blog world has been rocked today by the tragic announcement over at YHL. I’ll be over in the corner in the fetal position sucking my thumb while I wrap my brain around it. Okay, totally kidding. I’m fine. And thrilled to see them admit that they’ve …
