Spotting Celebrities

On Friday I'm going to start documenting our big kitchen demolition so make sure you come back for that. But today I wanted to talk a bit about spotting celebrities. I live in Southern California and I haven't seen very many celebrities in real life. I think maybe 3 or 4. One I remember clearly. It was Trevor Penick from O-Town. You ... see more >>

Happy Belated Valentine’s Day

Kyle and I had a super fun Valentine's day. And I'm gonna brag about it all right here and tell you about all the awesomeness that our Valentine's day bestowed upon us. Let me preface this story with the fact that Kyle and I are not huge Valentine's celebrators. We celebrate, but we don't really care. It's just another excuse to do ... see more >>

Spiffing up the Pipe Hiders

Home Remodel Time Yesterday I announced getting back into the swing of things here at the blog, so here I am with our first post back about our Home Remodel (you know, the house we bought, renovated, and sold). Well, after Kyle built the casing to hide the ugly pipes, it didn't quite match the fence it was up against. So we got ... see more >>

The Importance of Researching Insurance Costs

When Kyle and I bought our first home, we wanted to make sure we got the best insurance possible, and at a price that made sense. You don't always want to go with the lowest cost, and you definitely don't want to go without certain coverage. So we did a lot of research and we went with the best coverage that fit our needs, and at a good ... see more >>

Holding Back Crazy Banana Trees with a Quick Inexpensive Custom Fence

Beach Bungalow Time The weather here has been very cold compared to usual for over the last month. The last two days have been about 70 degrees (that's more like it) but it comes at a price. The air is so dry and arid, and staticky, yuck! But at least I can sit in my house and not turn the heater on during the day, and I can go outside ... see more >>

DIY PVC Light Stands

A few days ago, I told you about my DIY hanging light for our kitchen. Now I'm going to show you how I made two standing lamps out of pvc pipes. And the heights can be changed by adding different lengths of pvc pipe along with a coupling. Just like the hanging light, I used some extension cords as the wiring of my pvc light stands. Here's ... see more >>

Playing in the Neighborhood

It's funny because even though I don't have kids, I still recognize the perks to having parks around and kids playing in them. It just makes me happy. I like it when other people are happy. And unless one kid is throwing sand at another kid, usually everyone is happy at the park. That's my cute nephew. He's 4 now. When I was ... see more >>
