Tuesday Tidbits

Another Tuesday Tidbits and we are only 3 weeks (to the day) from Christmas! Yay!!! We have many trees throughout the house and lots of twinkle lights. I learned many years ago that almost anything looks Christmas-y with twinkle lights. Several of our Christmas items are hand-me-downs from my family. I always loved this pewter

Today’s Tuesday Tidbits was originally going to be a wrap up of Thanksgiving, but in the hustle and bustle of the actual meal prep I did not take any “finished” pics. I can tell you that things went exactly as planned (ahhh…I don’t get to say that often, so I’m going to enjoy it for

Tuesday Tidbits with Thanksgiving Tips

Ahhhh….another Tuesday Tidbits and only two days until Thanksgiving! Is it just me or does it feel like Thanksgiving came super early this year? Add in our crazy early winter weather and I’m just completely thrown off with my routine. We have been busy doing some projects around the house (that blasted trim is still

Another week means another Tuesday Tidbits filled with lots of mini-projects on the house (getting ready for the holidays). Since we are hosting Thanksgiving, I decided to leave the fall decor up through that holiday. I’ll probably take it down on Thanksgiving evening and start placing Christmas decor. I found the gold pumpkins (pic above)

Given that yesterday was election day, I decided not to post our usual blog. But since the election is now over (and I’m guessing we are all ready to move on…if for no other reason than to be done with the commercials), I thought it might be nice to do the blog today. This Tuesday

Another Tuesday Tidbits and we are SO excited that fall is in full bloom here in SW Michigan!! The view (above) is from our master bed. It’s the most amazing yellow/orange/red hue outside. We have continued to work on the garage. There are still more cabinets to go and we have to stain the cabinets…but

Our Tuesday Tidbits this week is all about the garage. There are plenty (and I mean PLENTY) of things to still be done inside. But with the weather changing, Trent wanted to get the garage more organized. On past homes, we have purchased these garage organizing systems (like a closet system) that look very “garage-y.”

Tuesday Tidbits Becomes Thursday Tidbits

This week (unfortunately) our Tuesday Tidbits has become Thursday Tidbits…and thank you to those who sent private messages asking if we are alive! We are alive, but I have been under the weather for the last week. Normally, things don’t slow me down much but the last few days have been about getting my actual

I’m so excited for this Tuesday Tidbits because we have major progress on the exterior! We have been saying since the start that we would re-open the original doorway on the west side of the house. It was bricked over decades ago, but originally had a third porch. We debated back and forth and decided

Before I update you on the house for this Tuesday Tidbits, it is impossible to not comment on the date (9/11). Both Trent and I have had the opportunity to visit the 9/11 Memorial multiple times in NYC. If you have never been, I recommend it adding it to your list. It’s an all encompassing
