The ramblings of a mad woman

Here's the thing.

I'm too excited to write about the stuff that's already happened.

Our first pile of drywall. Brought into the house in August.
That is how far behind I am...

FINALLY! - 2nd floor tour!

Soooo clearly I'm something of a procrastinator.
The downstairs tours were posted way back in May... MAY!

But to make up for it, I'm not going to split the second floor tours up into multiple posts.. I'm just going to go ahead and dump them all here for your viewing pleasure!

Welcome to our second floor!

For the first time in forever...

First, I'm sorry for everyone who just started singing Frozen songs. But it had to be done. 

Because it's official. For the first time in forever, our house is warm!

Insulation is 100% complete.

Mixing up the monochromatic - A quick and easy bathroom door improvement!

This is a bit of a deviation from what I've been writing about recently, mainly because it's a decorative improvement in a house that has all its walls...

I cannot wait for the day when I get to do projects like this (well not exactly like this... too modern!) around our own home. But until that day, my mom has commissioned me to do some around her house!

A few months ago (aka in January) my mom had the idea of lining the barn-style door into her laundry room with wallpaper. She looked online and found a good candidate and bought a roll.

It arrived in the mail in February while she was on vacation and I was way too snoopy and excited to just wait for her to get home. So I opened it up and discovered that the roll of wallpaper was not wide enough...

Impatience is a virtue... right?

REALLY quick note: I got some pie baking in this season after all!

Yay for pumpkin pie!
Now, back to the previously scheduled program.

********

I can't wait to share this with you.

I probably SHOULD wait.

Because now you're going to get a post that won't have a completed, happy ending.

Toasty Warm

I'm going to blend two topics within this blog post today.

For the extremely simple rational of actually moving forward.

WARMTH!

One of our crazy bonfires this summer.

That is what we're going to discuss in very brief and totally unromantic terms. (Post-blog-writing-edit: I seem to have gone on a bit of a tangent and MAYBE this post isn't as brief as originally stated. You have been warned.)

The Leather Year

Happy Anniversary to the only guy who can infuriate me and make me laugh within the course of a single sentence. He's also the only guy who could possibly handle all of my crazy and for that, I am grateful.


Yep! One more year added to the Jake and Alison marriage tally. 3 down, 22 to go! (Or something like that..)
