Mom Time... Mom Guilt... same thing, right? But why? This is something I truly struggle with and probably not for the reason that you would expect. I struggle with this concept of Mom Guilt because I just don't feel it. I also don't agree with it. Probably because I seriously have the greatest husband ever who has never once made me feel it... But, I've started talking to other moms about it and I hear so many of the same reasons for the Mom Guilt. "My husband worked all day,
Ever since our HGTV film crew pulled out of the driveway in June, Jason and I have been reminiscing and talking about how much fun we have had. The experience was so rewarding and so much fun to do together! But ever since we have been able to publicly talk about this experience, we have been flooded with well-meaning questions about our experience and they are all the same. So with just one day to go until our episode airs, we've decided to answer a few questions here! Our t
Heavens, I learned a lot during our home renovation. A lot. One of the life lessons that I learned during this process was a little surprising for a home reno, but I'll take it! Throughout our process we had tons of open space (removing walls does that) and since we didn't have any furniture yet, there was tons of space for dance parties! Penny was on the brink of her first big dance recital so we blasted "Whats New at the Zoo" and danced to our hearts content, not caring if
We're so excited to start sharing some of our favorite home renovation projects in the coming weeks, many of which we won't be able to share until after our Beachfront Bargain Hunt Renovation episode airs on August 20th. True to the title of our show, we did so many things to this house for a serious bargain! One of my top projects was updating our front steps. Pretty high on my personal wish list was a big front porch. I love the idea of being able to sit on my front porch w
It's been a while. A couple of weeks have gone by since I blogged last because quite frankly, I was pouting.
For 2 years I have planned out starting a non-profit. Two years.
When Jason and I made the huge leap of faith to move to the Outer Banks 5 years ago, we had $48. Forty Eight Dollars. Total.
We packed everything we owned and spent every single cent that we had to come to a place that made us feel alive. The big job offer that I received was an answer to prayers
I've had an epic week. No, we have had an epic week. Jason and I have recently embarked on the crazy, wild and wonderful experience of renovating our home. We have always wanted a fixer upper and talked about how we would do things. Then, just as we were about to begin our renovations, something happened that has forced us to really evaluate every second of this reno! So while I had planned to give a play by play here on the blog of our renovation experiences as they happen,
We hit 65 degrees here yesterday and it was pure bliss. I had an incredible beach walk to clear my head and an amazing morning with my sweet family for brunch and celebrated a sweet little friend's birthday.
It was the perfect Outer Banks day, the kind of day that makes most annual Outer Banks visitors ready to start their vacation plans! This little sandbar isn't just an annual vacation destination. It's a second home to so many people and I truly believe that there is ma
