Exterior Color. Which do you like best?

Five options of color for our house


I was playing with Photoshop and added landscaping, window boxes, a yellow door, and different options of siding colors to our house.  Which one do you like best?

One Year in Our House! Lots of Before and After Pictures!

One Year in Our House

I cannot believe we've been in our house for one whole year!!  Where has the time time gone?  I remember thinking in January that our house no longer felt "new."  It just felt like our house and not our "new" house.  I don't know exactly how or when that happens. Anyway, in honor of living here a whole year, I thought I share some before and after pictures.

Solution for sliding your heavy Kitchenaid mixer

Baking in with the Kitchenaid

Anyone who has a KitchenAid mixer knows how heavy they are. They weigh a ton. I love mine, but because it's so heavy, if it isn't sitting on the kitchen counter all the time, I probably wouldn't use it. I know that's true, because I hardly ever used in our old house when it was stored in our utility room. It was just too much work to drag it out. That's why I wanted it more accessible in my new kitchen.

Happy New Year!!

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to all of you from me and my family! 

We're spending New Year's Eve at home, and decided to take some family pictures before the Christmas decorations are taken down. We've never had a picture taken of the four of us, and my new camera made it possible to have some nice pictures. I'm getting pretty good at using it now.
