Hello! When we moved into our new custom home in December of 2017, I knew I wanted to have a pretty walk in pantry. Well, we got everything except for the pretty. 🙂 It had the standard wire shelves and they worked fine, but were far from impressive. When we built our home, I chose a french door to the pantry and a pretty chandelier because I knew we would eventually add wooden shelves and not only make it more functional for our family, but also pretty. Well, that time has come!

Why I Take Our Christmas Tree Down On Christmas Day

I love everything about it from the music to the twinkling lights and beautifully wrapped presents. But as soon as those beautifully wrapped presents are ripped to shreds…I’m over it. Pack it up, I’m done.

I Won a Chili Cook Off…Kinda

I Won a Chili Cook Off…Kinda

Ok, I tied with my co-worker. He made a delicious white chicken chili and I made one with ground beef. The weather is cooling off so now is the time to start making some comfort food! So, here’s the deal with my cooking. I love to cook and consider myself pretty decent. Not like my best friend who cooks a feast for her husband that rivals a 5-star restaurant…on a random Tuesday. Sometimes I think I’m fancy too and toss in things that sound good at the moment. I never 100% follow a recipe because of this this innate desire I have to make it mine. My Dad is the same way, we do a little of this a little of that and there’s no measuring. Ever. You just eyeball it. So this should be easy to follow, right!?

The Lighter Side of Hardwood

The Lighter Side of Hardwood

As we built our home, I was super involved. The flooring was no exception. You’ll think I’m nuts, but when I ordered wood floor samples I would place them next to our dog that sheds in an attempt to blend with his coat. We don’t allow our dogs on our furniture so they lay on the floors all day. I swear the vacuuming is never ending so if I miss a day or two it won’t be horribly noticeable. These are just a few things I considered when choosing a lighter wood floor.
