Progress on our House – Garage, Tootsie Roll’s Room

The bank repaired the garage for us because those violations added up to $4000!  So that was awesome.  However, they didn't paint or install siding.  Thankfully, I have an awesome dad! and he painted it for us!!  Our village demands that the garage walls match the house so the color we chose was Mushroom Cap.  I like that name.  :)  I was telling Hobbs… If the village didn't insist about the color match, I don't think it ever would have occurred to me to do the garage the same color as the … [Read more...]

This is a different kind of Quick Takes in honor of my 5 Year Wedding Anniversary! These are my 7 Best Memories of the Wedding - 1 - My Bachelorette Party was awesome!  My sister had my two best friends come over to give me a ride.  We had a quick drink before they drove me to the undisclosed location which turned out to be a bowling ally.  It was so great because it was totally private - pretty much no one else was there.  Afterwards, my friends took me to a karaoke bar.  It was SUCH a … [Read more...]
