We Have Heat

One of the projects Wade was most excited about was restoring the radiators. He had great plans to sandblast them all and then paint them a gunmetal grey. He even went so far as to get most of them out of the house and into the garage. About a month ago, he realized it might…

Slumber Party Like It’s 1980

I got invited to a slumber party last night and decided to go. I knew theme was 1980 so I packed my old movies and a sleeping bag. Seven girls ordered pizza, pigged out on junk food, played games (Scene It and Catch Phrase), and watched movies (Footloose and Girls Just Want To Have Fun)….

    Sounds fun! We had a pajama party last year for Christmas at Heather’s house. They had another a couple of weeks ago, but I didn’t attend that one since we had Taylor. So fun!

    Your house is looking great! Maybe your mom can come and help at my house!? 🙂

    I’m sure Mom would be more than happy to help. She’s really good at the “finishing touches”.

My Husband is Awesome

While in Paducah, I spent some time helping mom get ready for the rehearsal dinner. She wanted me to touch up the trim on some of the door frames. Being my mother, she didn’t provide me with paint but with white-out. I normally put on work clothes for anything even remotely messy, but didn’t think…

And We Are Down To One

As of this week, Wade and I only own one house! Our house in Anderson still hadn’t sold and the number of viewers abruptly dropped. It appears the housing market in Anderson took a good 6-8 months to drop off after the rest of the US. We had the appraisal done for the company buy-out…

    Holly,

    That’s awesome…I know that’s a major stress off your shoulders.

  • HollySeptember 28, 2008 - 2:59 pm

    Most Definitely!

  • MichelleSeptember 30, 2008 - 2:51 pm

    I know that is such a relief!

    It was such a pretty home. Do you still have the link to buy the stars that you put in the mud room that Jamie sent you? I cannot find them anywhere! Where did you find those faux ceiling tiles for your bedroom?

  • HollyOctober 9, 2008 - 10:32 am

    I don’t still have the link for the stars, but I have seen lots of “decorative” type stores carrying them – Michael’s or such. I bought the faux ceiling tiles at Hobby Lobby. I wish I could find vintage ones – the red color is what is holding me up there.

Still Shopping

We finally found greenery. I knew about a local nursery, Stein, but I didn’t realize they had an impressive inside with decorating touches. We made a quick stop at another mall before heading to the Third Ward for lunch with Maren and Elise. Mom was more than happy to have a little time to play…

A Nice Surprise

Wade had been in Atlanta for the week and was supposed to fly in last night. Instead he bought a new car (2003 Audi A4 Avant) and was going to drive home. He planned to drive as far as he could and then get a hotel room. I woke up at 5 am to find…

Decorating 101

Wade had gotten some help moving my big white piece into the sunroom. Mom and Carolyn quickly had it looking good. After shopping at all the old standby’s – Bed, Bath, and Beyond, Linen ‘n Things, Target, TJ Max, and Marshalls, we spent the afternoon looking for an equivalent to “Hobby Lobby”. We haven’t found…

There’s Always Time for Shopping

Mom and her good friend, Carolyn, came back to Milwaukee with me. They wanted to see my house and I love for them to “decorate”. We rode the train and arrived in Milwaukee around 5 pm. I had just enough time to pick Madison up from the kennel and then we decided there was time…
