Weekend Adventures

I’ve been procrastinating on starting a new endeavor… so of course I decided to do anything and everything this weekend except the one thing I should be doing instead. Let me count the ways I have procrastinated… We went to the farmers market for iced coffee and donuts (& peaches)… I caught up on some… Continue reading Weekend Adventures

Throwback Thursday: Foundation to Finished

It’s hard to believe that this week marks one year since we moved into our first house. We started the building process in May 2015 and moved in at the very end of the year. And in the year since, so much has happened! It’s weird to think that when we moved in, I had… Continue reading Throwback Thursday: Foundation to Finished

Birchboxes Everywhere

I’ve been a loyal Birchbox subscriber since 2012, and I still love using up the sample sizes of beauty products I would never think to pick up by myself… and even though I’ve been paying $10/month over the past few years, having a subscription has drastically cut down on my impulse buys at the drugstore… Continue reading Birchboxes Everywhere

Foundation to Finished: December 2015

Woohoo, the post I’ve been waiting to write all year, ever since we started looking for a house! December marked the last month of progress, and we’re officially all moved in.  Even with a couple snafus like the wrong backsplash tile installed, the shower floor tile being discontinued, one missing cabinet handle on backorder, etc.,… Continue reading Foundation to Finished: December 2015

Foundation to Finished: November 2015

Time for an update on our new house journey… November was the biggest month yet! Everything is coming together at lightning speed now.

Insulation and drywall have been hung, then cabinets and tile in… Continue reading Foundation to Finished: November 2015

Foundation to Finished: October 2015

Time for an update on our new house journey… A lot happened this month, but we still have a ways to go. We met with our builder mid-month for the frame review to go over a checklist of items (and the builder spray painted notes for the crew all over the foundation which was fun).… Continue reading Foundation to Finished: October 2015

Foundation to Finished: September 2015

Time for an update on our new house journey… Things started speeding up this month, but we still have a ways to go. There were two pretty major updates this month: (1) The road that connects downtown Franklin to our neighborhood was completed, woohoo! It adds about 10 minutes to my current commute, which isn’t… Continue reading Foundation to Finished: September 2015

Foundation to Finished: August 2015

Time for an update on our new house journey… … this month has flown by! In July, the permits finally got sorted out, but with lots of rain it seemed to take the entire month of August to finally get started.  I’m crossing my fingers for good building weather from now on. My mama visited… Continue reading Foundation to Finished: August 2015

Foundation to Finished: July 2015

I haven’t blogged too much about our experience building a home yet, but it seems like a good time to catch up on the process so far and start sharing monthly updates on our journey along the way. Buying a house is something I’ve looked forward to for a long time. We are finally settled… Continue reading Foundation to Finished: July 2015
