House Update--Drywall & Flooring

Now, we move onto drywall--which they completed in the winter.

And once drywall was completed, we were able to start some of the design decisions--paint, and flooring. :o)

Long Overdue House Update--Framing, Windows, and Sideways

So, it's been a long times since I posted a house update…like over a year long…
If you follow me on Instagram, you have seen updates but I have left everyone in blog land in suspense.

I made my first and only house post way back in October of 2015 and I am just now getting to another update. How awful is that!? I am so sorry. But I plan on getting the rest of the updates posted so you can all see them.

So, I will pick up with where I left off--which would be with framing.

If you need to catch up you can check out my first post HERE. Next post will be plumbing, electric and drywall. :o)


Nail Polish Blog Swap


I have joined forces with a few lovely ladies to host a nail polish swap.

I mean, how fun, right!? Who doesn't love nail polish?? 

I love nail polish! Maybe a bit too much. Ok, no that's not possible! Ha! And my 2 girls love it too and are always asking to have their nails painted so it just adds to our polish frenzy over here!

So, when Johannah asked if I would like to host a nail polish swap, of course my answer was YES! Plus, I 'met' Johannah through a nail polish swap so it was perfect!

Now on to the details of the swap!

More Snow & Some Sledding

We started off Christmas break with the kids going sledding and playing in the snow.

We still had some snow from 2 recent snowstorms so we wanted to take advantage of it before the warmer weather came in to melt it.

I'm glad we did because we have been having above normal temps since then--like even 50 degree days so who knows when we will get another decent snowfall for sledding.


A Beautiful Snow

We had a beautiful snowfall the other day--like big fluffy snowflakes that stuck to everything.

It was so beautiful, so I had to take the kids outside to let them play and snap some pictures.

The ended up building snowmen--all by theirselves. They did a great job!
