Preparing for Chaos

We have decided to remodel our home! The work will touch every space in the home except for the bedrooms. We are gutting the kitchen, taking down part of a wall, adding a bathroom in the playroom, putting in new floors, adding more lights, removing the fireplace, rearranging the laundry room…whew!

Keepin’ It Simple

There are lots of reasons projects don’t get done in my house. Most of the time it’s due to the two crazy boys in my home, but sometimes I can’t blame them. Sometimes it’s completely my fault. I’ll think the project will take ten, very complicated steps; in reality, it will take two simple steps […]

Time to Work

I found a nanny for Lil’ TJ a month ago, so I had time to start my business in Houston (and have a little bit of time without any kids – yeah!). This also meant I needed to work on my office. It was not a place conducive to working…

Our playroom doubles as a guest room since the previous owners left their Murphy bed (genius!), but there isn’t any storage for guests’ clothing. I bought […]

Just a Little Decorating

It may not technically qualify as “organizing”, but decorating is definitely part of making a house feel like home. This weekend I didn’t get much organizing done, but I did do a little bit of decorating. We now have the pictures on the wall (not counting X-man’s artwork from school). It was a three day process […]

Bathroom Done…For Now!

Lil’ TJ gave me a longer than normal nap this afternoon so I was finally able to finish working on our master bathroom. And I use the term “finish” loosely – there is (and almost always will be) improvements to do, but I’m calling it done for now. I finalized homes for items and incorporated […]
