And the streak continues! So yeah, if you’ve been following me through the years, you may already know of my complete aversion to standard store bought costumes.
Nothing adds a bit of pizzazz like some flashy marquee letters. Unfortunately, while Etsy offers oodles of them, they are largely out of my price range, and by my price range, I mean the amount Andy will confidently agree that I should spend on light up letters for a 4 day event. Commence project DIY. I […]
We’ve basically been stuck in our house since January 1st, and aside from the uncontrollable sobbing and eye twitching, it’s been amazing. I’m like Sissy Spacek in Blast From The Past. There’s been constant rainbow looming, online shopping, minor home renovations, and it’s also cleared the way for a couple “me” projects. Bought a new […]
I don’t know about you, but I hate to have things all up on my neck. On top of that, I have a large chest, so high necklines- on top of choking me- are really unflattering. Plus I like my sweatshirts with cleavage. I’ll own that. So, I have come up with a solution to […]
So, one of the final pieces from my epic hernia thrift furniture haul was a beat up old dresser I found for $30. Click here for the AFTER and all the details!

Remember the television console that almost killed me? Thanks to copious amounts of help from Andy and my mom, I was able to finish it, but out of principal, I gave it the silent treatment the whole entire time. It actually wasn’t the only thing I purchased that day. I also left with a headboard […]
Curvy girls have great hair. At least I do. I mean, for so long, it was my only redeeming quality. Well, at least she has great hair…. It’s the “but she’s got such a pretty face” of comments. Whatever, cute hair totally made women’s denim colored stretch slacks acceptable in junior high. I have gotten […]
This weekend we’re having a kid Halloween party. I’m really excited about it. Well I was more excited about it two months ago when I declared we were going to throw it and bought a bunch of Halloween magazines, and am slightly less excited about it now that I have to clean my house and […]
For years I have been begging Andy to do a couples Halloween costume. He finally relented our sophomore year of college; we were to be Burt Reynolds and Loni Anderson. I had the best blonde wig and push up bra, and Andy had spent a whole 6 hours growing a thick black mustache. It was […]
