Just thinking about it sometimes makes me tired. Most of my weekends look like this. Happy Friday, y’all. #studydate #gradschoollife @laurenbarnett_ […]

To me, the end of the month of August represents the end of summer. While the temperatures may not reflect the seasonal shift (in my head) for awhile, my home sure can. So, I decided to celebrate the unofficial end of summer with a navy and orange tablescape. This is a super simple and inexpensive […]

Raincoat Storage: Dog Style

Six Months

We just celebrated our six-month anniversary of living in our blue house. Where has the time gone? I thought it might be fun to look back at what we’ve accomplished these past six months and where we’ve yet to go. Our house looked a bit dated when we moved in, but that didn’t stop us […]

Video: Winter Sees Her Reflection

Have you ever wondered what happens when a kitten sees her reflection for the first time? Hilarity ensues. This little girl is proving to be quite entertaining. Just a few days ago I found her passed out in the toy box she shares with the dogs. Playing with all of those toys must be simply […]

February 2013 Instagram Photo A Day Challenge

In February I did one of those photo a day challenges. I’m surprised it’s taken me this long to write about it. I chose to do the Fat Mum Slim (FMS) challenge, because it seemed like the most fun. The premise of the photo a day challenge is that you’re given a prompt for each day, […]
