Oh Sugar!

As I was sitting in bed watching tv and popping sour patch kids like they were going out of style last night, I realized that it was probably time to revisit my diet.  I had decided during the renovation that I just wasn’t going to worry about what I was eating.  For a while there,…

Happy Birthday to Lauren

Yesterday was Lauren’s 8th birthday and she decided it was time to get her ears pierced!  I was probably more excited than she was.  Lawrence took her out to IHOP for a daddy daughter breakfast and she went back and forth a couple of times, would she or wouldn’t she?  But in the end she…

Backsplash

I can’t believe it’s Monday already.  The weekends around here seem to go really fast since we’re trying to get everything done in the next couple of weeks.  This weekend we tackled the back splash which means the only project left is the floors!  We had a tough time picking out a tile.  I originally…
