Well, hello! Long time, no see!

It’s true. I’ve been away from the blogosphere for far, far too long. Life, motivation, distraction… UGH. So many things have changed since my last post! I think it’s time for an overhaul of this entire blog. I’m looking forward to it, and I hope you are too!

Since last we’ve met there have been some major changes and here are some of them:

We bought a house! There will be a whole post dedicated to it.
Here’s Dan on the day we closed:


Dan is really happy that he can spread his arms out and not touch anything.


We have more furry friends! Don’t bother telling us we’re crazy. We know we’re crazy. But if it weren’t for these furry dudes, we would be even crazier! We have added 2 more cats and a puppy to the mix. Fritz and Lazer Bee were born around the time we moved in to the new house, in the neighbor’s wood pile! They are about a year old now and are really cool dudes.

The puppy is the newest edition to the family. Here’s a collage of our sweet Miss Lola Butterbean:

Lola at about 14 weeks old


We think she is  mostly Golden Retriever with maybe some Border Collie and/or Shepherd mixed in. She is a rescue and there isn’t much info on her history, so we will probably never know! All we do know is that she is an incredible sweet heart and very smart! She also doesn’t seem to care one way or the other about the cats unless she thinks Fritz might play with her. I think Fritz is happy to have another blonde in the house! I’m hoping for puppy kitty piles of snuggles in the future. I think we are on the right track!.

I’m pretty excited to get back in the swing of things here and to start posting again! You can expect some before and after shots of the house. Some “I can’t wait until we can completely change everything about our kitchen” lamenting and what I come up with to help in the mean time. Some crafty things and lots of messy things. And of course, updates on our furry friends!

Until then…

xoxo, Nicole
