Tuesday Tidbits

This Tuesday Tidbits is just a little bit better because fall has officially arrived and I am SO HAPPY about it!!! I still need to decorate the front porch, but I’ve placed just a couple of items around over the last week or so. I’ll do some larger decor items once we get closer to

Another Tuesday Tidbits friends and we had a busy, but productive week/weekend. I’ll get to the house stuff soon, but Trent and I took a little time to celebrate our anniversary. We ran into Chicago for a fun day….a little shopping, a lot of eating. There is a funny part to the story. We knew

This week’s Tuesday Tidbits is all about the windows! The windows were a major feature that drew us to this home. The arches, the size, the number of windows…you get the idea. And while we have always loved them, they have basically been a huge thorn in our sides since we started this project. Shockingly,

A Very Late Tuesday Tidbits

As you can obviously tell, this Tuesday Tidbits is terribly late (seeing as it’s Wednesday)…but better late than never! As I mentioned on our Facebook page, Trent and I had a whirlwind trip to Vancouver this weekend and it pushed everything back a day or so. Technically, Trent’s trip was a little longer than mine,

For this Tuesday Tidbits I thought it might be interesting to show you some of our house features up close and personal. The kitchen seems to be the obvious place to start since it’s where most people spend the largest amount of time and money. Our home is no different than any other and we

Tuesday Tidbits is here again and after a few months, I’m finally making my way through the last of the basement storage containers. Needless to say, I’ve made several trips to Goodwill. The good news is that things are finally just about organized around here. We are still trying to figure out exactly what we

Truthful Tuesday Tidbits

Another beautiful, HOT summer week…another Tuesday Tidbits! While we did have a holiday thrown right into the middle (Happy Birthday, America!) we did not get any downtime this week. I wish I could tell you it was house projects that kept us busy, but alas…it was work. Good ol’ work. Trent actually had to be

Tuesday Tidbits

It’s a gorgeous, sunny week with a holiday tossed right in the middle…pure perfection! This Tuesday Tidbits is a little more “behind the scenes.” We have been working on small, mundane tasks within the house but the truth is we need to get the door trim/casing finished to truly wrap things up. We have two

This Tuesday Tidbits is coming to you from a very hot and humid place. I love our four seasons (LOVE) but I’ll be the first to admit I’m already online shopping for fall house decor (shh….don’t tell Trent). When I left you last Tuesday, I was preparing to caulk the small fireplace and I’m happy
