Return on Investment of Curb Appeal and Lovely Landscaping – Ironic Much? [INFOGRAPHIC]

Funny because I just wrote about adding curb appeal to our "front" yard, and then stumbled upon this infographic. When Kyle and I remodeled our home, we spent a lot of time in the front and backyard. We mainly did a simple cleanup in the backyard to make it more appealing, but we did a lot more to the front yard to add "curb appeal". ... see more >>

Added Some Much Needed Curb Appeal to Our “Front” Yard

Beach Bungalow Time As many of you know, we live in an apartment located on an alley that is attached to the main house that someone else is renting. So our front yard is in the alley. But I call everything behind our fence our backyard, and everything on the street part of the alley the front yard. It took us about a year, but we ... see more >>

Amok is a weird word, isn't it? Anyway, My bloggie friend Vicki invited me to do a guest post at Domestic Mamma, so my post about the ... see more >>

Happy Father’s Day!

Fathers make a huge difference in this world. I personally think that what a father (or any man) does or doesn't do in a child's life is more impactful, whether positive or negative, than what a mother does or doesn't do. I think a lot of the psychopathology our world faces has to do with the fathers in this world. Whether the father ... see more >>

Summer Home Improvement Projects for Kids [INFOGRAPHIC]

I am so glad it's summer. Kyle and I just had our first day at the beach, and I tried surfing for the first time. It was a lot harder than I thought it would be but I was able to get up on my feet... for about two seconds, lol. I'll share more about that later. Maybe I'll put up a video of my new "skills" at some point. Anyway, since ... see more >>
