It’s missed details like this that upset me.


The first picture clearly has a tile that is not aligned like the others. I’m sorry, it bothers it me. It truly does. The second picture is a result of no forward thinking, no measuring, just cutting. We’ve had that cover plate for months and you would think that the person installing the tile would […]

Today is going to be a good day.


I got two pieces of cheese on my sausage, egg, cheese croissant from 7-11. Hashtag win!

Holy cold weather!


  Seriously, it’s cold. It’s even worse when you really don’t have any “winter” clothes or jackets. I know I’ve been saying that I would welcome cold weather and an actual “Winter” but 29°F for Florida is too cold. I would say that our Winter lows (in my area at least) are generally between 45°F-50°F, […]

It’s a new year.

Master Bath entrance/exit. Tiled walls :) Incomplete.

It’s a new year! I feel like this home renovation is just taking forever and sucking the money right out of us. LoL Quick update: According to the guy doing our bathrooms, he should be done by Thursday of next week… that would be January 9, 2014. I really hope he is because that’s when […]

I’m Sorry, There Really Isn’t Much Going On.


I know,  I KNOW! All zero of you are missing me wondering where I went but there really hasn’t been much progress because things have been on backorder and taken forever and a day to arrive. However, the painting is almost complete in our house and they will hopefully begin tiling the bathrooms on Monday. […]

Our Bathrooms Have This Gutted Feeling

The style vanity we're putting in all the bathrooms, just only a single sink and not two. No need for two sinks in each bathroom.

Check it out yo! We’ve pulled everything out of 3 of the 4 full bathrooms and are ready to move this forward! The following bathroom photos are of the smaller cabana bath (inside bedroom #1), our “main bath” between bedrooms 1 & 2, and our upstairs bathroom next to bedroom 3. We have not completely […]

Millipedes! Oh My!


Finding these guys everywhere outside the new house and even in the house! Unfortunately when I find them inside they are already dead. Why is this significant? It’s not, I’ve just never seen a millipede before and I find it odd that all of a sudden I am seeing them everywhere around this house now.

Oh Yes, That Exciting News!

This spider/monster was a visitor in our home. EUW!!

I know I am posting this out of order, but whatever. No one is reading this. That exciting news that I was going to share and also potentially blog more about was that we FINALLY closed on the house we’d had an offer on since June, JUNE! The closing almost didn’t happen but thankfully our […]

Things That I Learned About Myself This Weekend


Before I begin, I should preface this. Before we started this whole house hunting shenanigans I watched a lot of DIY Network and HGTV. I thought to myself, gee, I could totally rehab a house, that looks like so much fun! Picking out the floors, paint colors, other decor. Well, now that we have a […]

Maybe Soon I Will Have Exciting Things To Share


I just can’t get into this blogging thing. I feel like I never have anything blog worthy that people would actually want to read. I start to write something but then I trash it. However, I may have some blog-worthy content coming soon. We (husband & I) will hopefully be closing on a house soon (that […]
