Planting trees and travel

Planting trees and travel

What do you do when you are getting ready to go on a trip?  Laundry, clean the house, water plants…etc?  I plant trees.  I can’t explain it, and I have just realized that I do this.  It also makes no sense because when I’m not […]

The pressure is on

The pressure is on

I’m at 30 weeks now, so in 9-11 weeks, life is going to get MUCH busier and harder for a bit.  Let’s not forget that there are 2 major holidays within those 9-11 weeks that also need to be celebrated, shopped for, decorated for, etc. […]

Home projects and holdups

Home projects and holdups

When we bought our house, there were some obvious upgrades that we wanted to make.  I jotted down a short-term list, 1 year list, and 5 year list shortly after we moved in.  We’ve completed a few of the short-term projects…well, mostly Lo, and we […]

Ant Wars.  We won (so far).

Ant Wars. We won (so far).

Moving is never fun, especially when you discover that there are already tenants that you were unaware of.  I never know where to start with unpacking, but the kitchen makes the most sense, because you gotta eat. Back in April when we moved in, I  […]

We’ve moved!

We’ve moved!

We made our move last Thursday and it’s going pretty well.  The movers were amazing (American Moving and Storage) and got the job done so fast.  We used them when we moved to Dublin and they were great then, so I’m not surprised.  My parents […]

House Staging Part 1: Main Floor

House Staging Part 1: Main Floor

When we were getting ready to list our house, our realtor said he’d send over an interior designed who helps people stage their homes. We knew we needed to clear stuff out and try to make it look like no one actually “lives” here, so […]

Our little bit of free time

Our little bit of free time

Despite being so busy, we’ve still taken a little time to do the things we love.  I played in two volleyball tournaments in the last3 weeks (poor timing, but I committed before knowing our listing timeframe, plus my opportunities to play are limited, both this […]

New House, House Sale, Life Changes

Sorry for the absence recently.  Things got a little crazy, and I didn’t open my laptop for over 2 weeks, except for quick research or to order something.  I haven’t even been taking pictures of Jenson lately, so we’ll refer to these as the lost […]

The place we first called home

The place we first called home

Now that we are headed towards spring, the real estate market is starting to pick back up.  I’ve mentioned before that we are considering a move to the country once we find the land and house we are looking for.  It’s so weird to think […]
