House Pinning

I had a former employee (a college student) back in town for a few weeks and she wanted hours at Boem, so I said, ‘you know what?  You can have all mine’ LOL.  So I took some personal time this week and it has been GRAND.  I had a friend in town, so we lunched and shopped (and dinnered and drank).  I met another friend for coffee.  I got a massage, I went to the dentist, and I did a ton of furniture shopping.  I also met with my builder for 2 hours to start hashing out house details.  Because guess what??  OUR HOUSE STARTED THIS WEEK.  Praise be.  The timing […]

Katie Dress + Random thoughts

Happy Monday!  Did everyone have a nice weekend??  Lance and I went camping and kept our phones off the whole time and it was SO nice.  Honestly, not having our phones was the best part.  It’s amazing how tied we are to them (or I am at least) and how distracting they are.  I was amazed at how easy it was to not use them at all when it wasn’t an option.

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, […]
