We were in charge of babysitting Alice this weekend, and thought there was nothing she would rather do more than visit the remodelers showcase and Home Depot! 



It was so great to get ideas for our house and talk to local remodelers. I really want to get rid of our entry stair rail and get something like this:


Sunday morning started with brunch with the fam to celebrate Matt’s birthday, and a lot of basketball watching, blog surfing, food prep, and napping! 

Izzy didn’t want us to leave her:



Buffet time:   


Food prep: 


Basketball naps: 




I’ve been all of the Angie’s List the past month getting estimates for some main floor work. Holy cow, it is pricey, but it’s oh so fun to dream about. 

Hardwood wide plank floors:

White kitchen, granite countertops, and subway tile:

And knocking down a wall to open up the living room and kitchen:

Entryway Table

I bought an entryway table last week and Matt assembled it this weekend. However, we are not loving it. It is a simple iron and glass table, and it not substantial enough for our liking. So, off it goes to be returned and the hunt continues!



1.) Terrarium Console?!  It’s unique, right?

2.) Upton Home Adelie Mirrored Console: I like it, but it’s too modern for our simple abode.

3.)  Vixen Brown Console:  It’s unique, but not the right fit and bit out of our price range.

4.) Hayden Console Table: I do love the idea of lots of mixed metals! Gold on the table, oil rubbed bronze light fixture, and silver mirror? It is all A-Okay in my books 🙂

5.) Wildon Home: Matt really like the idea of a simply black table.
