The Obvious Hiatus

In 2015 (over a year ago!!!!) I contemplated the decision to put this blog on a hiatus, but I just didn't have the heart to do it. We had moved into a new house and had so many fun, exciting things going on that I wanted to be able to share all about it. But the reality was that my side gig, Kitsy Co, was sucking up all my free time and something just had to give. So rather than give an official goodbye, this poor blog has just sat update-less for over a year. I'm not here to say it's revived, but I'm also not here to say I'm taking it down permanently. I still go back and reference posts all the time (like seriously, why don't I just write some of my own recipes down). But, I am excited to announce that I'll be contributing to Austin Moms Blog in 2017, getting in my blogging fix, and that Kitsy Co has reached new heights, with a website and all.

Stay cool, my friends!


Minimalist Christmas Decor

We put our tree up for the first time in THREE years. Woot. And the $30 spent in college on this Black Friday tree has clearly been well worth that full hosting shift I probably had to work to buy it. Have come along way.

The tree that has been dragged from storage unit to storage unit to attic to attic finally made its reappearance with a few other pieces of decor that have also been dragged through a similar tumultuous journey. Dubbed for this post - minimalist decor.

House Projects Update

Warning! Our house is currently chaos. We're talking cabinet doors and drawers everywhere, content of those drawers everywhere, tools everywhere, furniture everywhere, half painted things everywhere, paint spills on old carpet, miscellaneous holes in the walls and ceiling, missing baseboards, missing vents and outlets, ripped out things, half finished things, you get the gist. We've currently banned people from coming over, and according to the reactions of a couple of people that have stopped by, that seems to have been a good decision.

Are you cringing? It's gotten arguably better and worse.

But I promise we can see the light, the vision, an end result that is fabulous. And it's going to happen fast. We spent nearly four months on the go this summer, every week, every weekend, shortly after we moved in, so having a "break" to focus on remodeling is nearly therapeutic (well, for me anyway).

Are the Walls Gray, Purple or Blue and Black?

***Disclaimer: This blog post was written in April. We've come a long way, but I'm still a little bit scarred by the color of our walls, no matter how gray, purple or black and blue they are.

Ahhhhhhh, my paint savvy self (or so I thought) is totally dying about our wall colors, and not necessarily in a good way. I wanted greige walls - gray + beige mixed. Aka, a warm gray, not with blue, or purple, undertones. So we have this.

Not so bad, right? Well the color might as well be labeled blue and black because in our lovely lighting the Easter bunny came and laid lilac toned walls everywhere. Purple, y'all!!!

We Bought a House... Again

Surprise! We bought a house... like 6 months ago... in the land we love, Austin. That may be a partial reason why I have really fallen off the radar this time. And as I've debated announcing an official blogging hiatus (just too many irons in the fire), I realized I'd at least like to share our decision to buy a house... again.
