After you move into a completely restored home, you tend to forget about the outdoor work that remains to be done. Scott and I have been living at The House on High Street for five years, and we have recently (and finally) tackled the landscaping around the house! It wasn’t easy deciding on which plants and trees to use, but overall it came out beautiful!
I’ve been enjoying Valentine’s Day, ever since I was a little girl. Back then, I loved making cards and passing out treats to my classmates and teachers. It was simple fun, and it made me happy to share even the littlest thing with others.
When I first heard about a “Galentine’s Day Part”, I thought it was so silly or merely reserved for single women. But, then I remembered something. Valentine’s Day is not just for lovers! It’s a day to spend with those you love! Galentine’s Day (official or not) can be the perfect excuse to gather the friends you love and do something special. And, fun!
In today’s post, I’m going to share just how easy it is to throw something together. Without spending a lot of time or money! Read on…
Baby Blue is now fifteen months old! And that’s how long it’s taken to complete his bedroom makeover. As you may recall, Scott and I have done quite a few bedroom makeovers throughout the past five years. (Six makeovers for two bedrooms. But, who’s counting!) So, I guess you can say we’re slowing down a bit. However, Baby Blue finally has his very own, little boy bedroom. With a transportation theme! From firetrucks to motorcycles. Dump-trucks, trains, race cars, and seaplanes. It’s super fitting, since Baby Blue is all about, “Go! Go! Go!”
It’s the most wonderful time of the year. So they say. But, the holidays can be stressful and overwhelming, to say the least. There’s so much to do, and it goes by so fast. Scott and I celebrate Christmas and Hannukah, along with several birthdays, during the month of December. That makes the holiday season even more overwhelming. And expensive, I might add. I hate to miss out on any of the good stuff (especially the real meaning of Christmas), but by the time I get everything off of my list, Christmas is practically over.
I remember back in the day, my grandparents had a white Christmas Tree. As in, the entire tree! I never realized that it was supposed to replicate a snow-covered tree. It certainly didn’t look like a snow-covered tree. Nowadays, it seem that flocked Christmas trees are the most realistic and beautiful alternative to having a snow covered tree. This year, I decided to flock the Christmas tree that Scott and I have owned for several years, now. Since it was my first time, I figured worst case scenario is that we’d replace our tree, next year, for a tree that is pre-flocked.
So, you’re hosting Thanksgiving, this year? Congratulations! Or, shall we say, Good Luck? So far, Scott and I have hosted two Thanksgiving Dinners at The House on High Street. Rather successfully. Hosting any holiday dinner can be stressful. I think the best advice I can give you is to plan ahead and pace yourself. I actually created my own Thanksgiving Countdown! So, here are some tips for you in preparing for one of the greatest holidays, ever. Have fun!
