Our kiddos get so excited for their birthdays. Year after year, they look forward to a day of being spoiled and celebrated and of course, I was the same way as a child. As Joey gets older I notice him talking more and more about those milestone birthdays that I know I counted down the years to when I was his age. At 12 years old, Joey is talking about turning 13, finally being a teenager. He is also majorly counting down the years until he can earn a drivers license. Teenager
We’re starting to feel it in the evenings here on the Outer Banks, that crisp chill in the air that reminds us that Fall is around the corner even if it is still 80 degrees most days. We’re trading in the heat of the Summer and that charcoal grill smell that has filled our beach town for the past three months in for a scent of southern pine trees and empty beaches. (Can I get a hallelujah?!) With Labor Day behind us and kids heading back to school my Facebook and Instagram ar
We have a surprise! We're so excited that we had the chance to announce the upcoming arrival of our third baby at the end of our episode of Beachfront Bargain Hunt Renovation. Our little beach baby is already so loved and we absolutely cannot wait to meet this little one around New Years Eve! One kid is super excited about the gender of baby Krieg 3.0 and the other is feeling a bit over-powered... Without further ado... we're having a..... Baby Sister Krieg is on the way! Our
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
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
It's been a week. So incredibly hard to believe but, it's been a week. Our sweet golden-doodle was only 6 years old but heaven called him home. Buddha Love went from the worlds happiest and funniest dog, running big circles around our yard to being lethargic and refusing to eat overnight. Two days later, he began to stand like a bulldog with his chest high and his front legs pulling to the side. A visit to the vet on Monday morning revealed fluid around his lungs and heart an
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
