Hello gang! 

I haven’t forgotten that I have a blog, I promise. My computer is having a life crisis and I’ve been unable to do anything other than swear at it. Currently  blogging from my phone. 

Also my dishwasher is broken, my vacuum is broken, the ice maker in my freezer is broken (whyyyyyyy), my car’s check engine light is on, my terrorist toddler has lost the keys to the mailbox AND the garage door opener, and all of this is giving me a case of adult acne. 

What I’m saying is now is probably a good time for a break. So please enjoy your holidays! I will do the same, and we’ll meet up here again soon! 

PS: if you see Santa, tell him I need a new Mac. Or if he knows where the garage door opener is, that would be fine too.

Ya down with OCD?

True or false? It’s not what’s on the outside, it’s what’s on the inside that counts.

Pssh. Duh. FALSE. If it were true, there would be no such thing as Home-Owner’s Associations, that show Curb Appeal, or people who design book covers for a living. We’re humans. We tend to notice the outside of things because … well, that’s just what we see first.

Brienna was not in love with the outside of her home or the first-impression it gave. It was little sad, a little dreary, and off-centered enough to drive her batty. Seriously, who designs a house with three windows on one side and four on the other? I’m twitching.




My OCD and I can relax now, however, thanks to Brienna’s handiwork. She brightened up the entire exterior and restored balance to the universe by removing that fourth window and adding a porch-sized portico. Perfect!

New landscaping, a pretty mint-colored door, windowboxes and a new brick walkway complete the look

See more on her site Brienna Wagner.

Getting stoned

Hiiiiiii gang!

Remember me? It’s been a long time. Ok, like two weeks, but that’s a long time for me to disappear. So sorry to do that and leave you hanging. I’ve received lots of sweet emails and messages asking where the heck I am and if I’m OK, and what’s the deal. Thanks so much for taking the time to check on me.

Here’s the deal. I got my first ever kidney stone. HOLY SHARK BUTTS, it’s literally the worst thing I’ve ever done. Zero out of five stars – do not recommend. If you’ve ever had one, you’re likely nodding your head in agreement and shedding a tear of solidarity.  I don’t have a worst enemy, but I wish I did so I could NOT wish this on them. I’d rather be in labor. Truthfully. #1 – It’s shorter, and #2 – free baby for finishing.

It’s been an extra fun ride. My body responded like the champ that it’s not: becoming fully incapable of functioning and inviting a bunch of infections over to party in my organs. So I’ve been down for a while.

But I finally got in to the doctor, and got some medication, and look at me, I’m sitting upright and typing again and thoughts are kind of flowing out of my brain sort of, so I think I might just make it after all.

Anyway, just wanted to give you a heads up! Thanks again so much for all your kindness and concern. We will return to your regularly scheduled blog … eh … when I feel like it. But probably soon.

Your friend and kidney stone survivor (so far),

Sebring It On

I’m not at a loss for words often, but today’s kitchen makeover might just … you know … do … that.

Actually, I am at a loss for words often, sort of. Example: the other day I was trying to say the words ‘chocolate chips’ while literally holding a bag of chocolate chips in my literal hand, and the only words that kept coming out of my mouth were ‘carrot cakes.’ Like, Lindsey, that’s not even close. Get your life together.

Mom brain, it’s real.

Anyway, I’d love to make some carrot cake cookies or whatever in this beautiful kitchen from the makeover masters at Sebring Services.

Nope, I would never cook in this gorgeous kitchen. It’s just too perfect to muck up with such frivolities as cooking and eating. Pshh.  I think I’d just invite people over to come look at it. And charge them admission.

“Hi! Welcome to my new kitchen. Please come in. Here, have a small cup of water. Don’t touch anything. K, bye!”

But seriously, isn’t it fabulous? Everything is so crisp and serene, simple but still plenty of visual interest, from the backsplash to the pendants to the wood casing on the windows which warm it up an keep it from being too stark.  Perfection.

Check out Sebring Services for more, they have a huge remodeling portfolio to page through which is a great way to spend half your day!
