Good news! We are making progress in the kitchen...even though it still "looks" the same. My farmhouse sink arrived last week, HALLELUJAH! (Confession: I sit out in the garage just to stare at it. Don't judge me.) And we ordered the counters yesterday which was the biggest part of this process. After shopping around, we … Continue reading the kitchen pantry
Around 6 months ago, before we moved, I revamped Izzy’s room. Yeah, I know. Well, the WHOLE truth would be that my husband painted, moved stuff around and hung curtains, but I made everything pretty. That counts, right? Anyway, she had pretty pale pink walls, a queen four post bed with a beautiful armoire for … Continue reading Izzy’s Room
If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram, you're already in the loop that the Thurman Fam just moved. The process started because of my addiction love for looking at houses.

What if…. I play this game all the time. What if….I didn’t have to work. What if….I had long, sculpted legs. What if….money wasn’t a stress. What if….I followed-through more and actually finished what I started. Interestingly, when I play the “what if” game, most of what I think about is negative.

It's 7:03am and it's my day off. My precious little Izzy is snuggled in bed with me as I begin my morning with some quiet time. This is my favorite part about Friday mornings. It's a guarantee that I will hear little feet running through the house to my room early in the morning. She is … Continue reading friday mornings
Seriously though. I'm a garbage picker. And gosh darn't, I'm proud of it. If I were to take you on a tour of my house, it would consist of me pointing and saying, "I got that for free....I garbage-picked that....I found that for free on Craigslist...."
