The first two things we did when we received our keys was A) lay on the floor and bask in the glory of it all and B) rip up a corner of the carpet in the living room. I had done some research and found that houses built in the 50s and 60s were almostContinue reading

About 7 years ago, this blog was born. It’s purpose was to document our journey into eventual home-ownership. The House on the Hill was a sort of “rent to own” situation that never materialized. For many reasons, which I won’t really get into, that home was not meant to be for us. So after theContinue reading

Life comes at you fast and if you’re lucky…it’s a big beautiful mess of love, sweat and tears. On Sunday, October 4th… we got hitched.

So that happened over the weekend. It wasn’t without lots of swearing, splinters and a lot of “wow, they don’t fit. unscrew it!” — but we got ‘er done. I’ll be back with a bigger update (including those two sexy chairs in the back) once she’s sanded, stained and pillowed up.

Update: I’ve made modifications to my eating habits and am using NTC as a proper warmup for running. 15 minutes of almost any workout from the app and I can last a lot longer on the treadmill. Small victories, y’all! So it’s only February and I’m trying to party outside? Well, I do live inContinue reading

Update: My fiancé and I spoke at length after my last post and while I won’t get into specifics… I will say that he’s amazing. We’re moving forward, we’re growing. I may be taking the growing part a little too literal. Over a year ago, I wrote about wanting to change my body. For good.Continue reading
