House Update

Happy Monday friends!  People keep asking for a house update, and the reason there hasn’t been one is because nothing has really happened.  We were working with the architect, and once we had the plan pretty much done (meaning no walls were going to move, but small changes to doors and windows could still be made), the architect started working with the engineer (who ensures everything is structural sound with the house).  That took FOREVER, but the plans have finally been stamped by the engineer and they are now with the city getting permits (which I am sure is not a super fast process either).  The thing with building, you can’t do a dang thing until you have a permit, […]

My Guest Bedroom

Happy Friday babes!  I wanted to share my guest room with you today.  I love this room so much, it’s actually one of my favorite rooms in the house.  Funny story: when we moved into this house, we got new master bedroom furniture and we moved our old furniture into the guest room.  It was IKEA furniture, and I love IKEA, but this was the worst dark, fake wood (see HERE).  So Lance (like most men I assume) is like, ‘we have bedroom furniture, we don’t need anything new for the guest bedroom.’  Eye roll.  So I decided I was going to redo our guest room myself and on a budget.  Let me show you what I did! Wall and […]

Thirty Seven Things

Today is my birthday and I’m 37 YEARS OLD. I don’t know why that sounds so old, but it does.  I AM NOW OFFICIALLY IN MY LATE 30s.  I seriously have a huge fear of turning 40.  Getting older as a woman is tough.  Everything changes, and it changes fast.  I can barely drink because if I do, my hangovers are unbearable.  I get SUPER sore working out.  My back aches.  I have wrinkles and sun spots and it’s harder every year to stay skinny.  But on the other hand, I’ve never been happier or more confident in my life.  It’s weird because as I have gotten older, even as I have lost the beauty of my youth, as I […]

Out Of Office

Hola from Mexico!!  Lance and I are taking a few much needed days off.  We have both been working a ton.  I feel like I have been going non-stop (I had two markets in February buying for Fall), and Lance has been working more than me, so I can’t even imagine how he feels.  We love coming to an all-inclusive resort in the Caribbean once a year where we can just check out and do NOTHING for a few days.  Our first full day consisted of a workout, breakfast, laying by the pool, lunch, a bubble bath (for me), a nap on the beach, and then a shower and a little work!  We’re having Italian tonight (which was the biggest […]
