house

I love this house, but I hate it.

Allow me to complain for a bit. So I’ve been thinking this post in my head for a while, and then something happened. A blog I follow, Young House Love, revealed that they’d bought a new house. Ever since they moved into their current one about 3 years ago, I’ve been following along, jealous at all the things they are doing to it to make it their own and awesome and wonderful. Jealous because Sherri doesn’t have to bug John about changing the wall color again, because changing the wall color is LITERALLY their job and what they get paid […]

Project Blue Bedroom

I’ve wanted to change up the bedroom for quite some time now. I’ve never been crazy about the color since we moved. It’s called ‘carmelized onion’ and both Will and I hate onions, so I should have known. But it’s actually the same color we used in our bedroom when we lived with Will’s parents for a while, and we liked it there. Prime example of how lighting can change how you view a color! I tried to work with it, but I was finally just over it. And Will wasn’t crazy about it, either. The thing is, I knew […]

This is why we can’t have nice things.

So a few weeks ago (pre-termite discovery), I was doing one of those extra-thorough house cleaning jobs you do every few times, and that included wiping down our new leather chair, bought just a few months ago. I noticed that one of the corners of the chair – the corner that dog, baby, and people have to brush my to get past it – was already looking worn. It bummed me out, since we had mentioned when we bought it that man! it was a leather recliner! that thing could be with us the rest of our lives! yeah notsomuch. […]

Termites in the Hizzouse – I apologize in advance for the gross photos.

So. These are all the things that have been on my “to blog about” list for a while: supercheap and cute Amazon and eBay jewelry I have gotten Fixing all of my associate/affiliate links, so if you want to give me some props it’s super-easy for you. But I’ll save you time and share probably the best one. Ebates! Join, download the toolbar (I am totally anti-toolbar, but this one has SERIOUSLY saved me money), and click every time you shop online to see if there are ebates (or let the toolbar tell you automatically). I just cashed in $50 […]

How we got rid of our trashcans

The placement of the trash cans in our house ALWAYS bugged me. The only place they could really go in our kitchen was beside the fridge, which happened to be right by the back door, which happens to be the door that we use 99.999% of the time. We had 2 trashcans – one for recycling and one for trash – but even when there was one, that was the only place it could go, promise. Only it was gross. First of all, being beside the door sucked. If we did have people over and they came in that door, […]
