Our Fireplace

A while ago, I posted about Carlos and I debating whether to buy new windows or a wood fire place insert.  As you recall, we went with installing new windows.  We (I) thought it was the best decision because it would give us the best return when selling the house.  However, after having the windows […]

New floor

Well, some time has passed since Carlos installed the laminate flooring in the living room/dining room/kitchen.  Let me back up a bit to tell you about our floor purchase: We initially wanted wood floors.  The whole rest of the house has hardwood flooring, and we love it.  They are beautiful and easy to take care […]

DIY laundry detergent

About five years ago, my husband and I switched from traditional commercial laundry detergents.  We had heard about Charlie’s soap, a small local company making natural laundry detergent.  Back then, we could only buy it at a couple stores or online on their website.  Anyway, we made the switch and we loved it.  It saved […]

Earlier in the year I had posted about getting new windows vs a fireplace insert.  We made the decision to get new windows, and in February, these were installed.  Well, now that we have the new windows installed, we attempted to re-install the white faux wood plantation shutters and there is not enough space!  So, […]

I had hoped my first experience with choosing curtains and installing a rod would go smoothly.  I should have realized – especially after reading other blogs – that sometimes, things just don’t go as planned.  Of course, this is not a huge deal but, I’ve been anxiously waiting until I could get this done and […]

Lists, lists, lists

As everyone, we have a lot of things we need to do in our house.  Things we NEED to get done and things we’d like to because it would be nice for the house and would make us happy.  We also have non-house  things we need to save up for. I find the easiest way […]

Lamps

A while ago we purchased two lamps at JCP for our living/TV room.  As much as I like them, what I want for this room is different.  I feel the one we currently (similar to a light house) have is too small and I’d like something more substantial.  Couldn’t find the lamp on JCP site […]
