    Taking a break from the heat We went to the pool this weekend because it was hot. Aside from this refreshing and chlorinated amenity, I can’t say I’m going to miss the apartment complex.

  • Daydreaming home improvement

    A sketch: medium-term fixes for the kitchen So that house thing… We found one. We put in an offer, accepted, inspected, appraised, approved. We’re set to close on Monday. I’ve never done this before, but I figure that means we get keys. Then I figure we’ll spend the next few days with scrub brushes and […]

  • It’s a cap with LED lights built into the bill

  • The house hunt, an update

    Decor that is not ours Last off we were trying to get out of contract from a house that had more issues that we bargained for. Things settled last week and we (thankfully) received the earnest money back. So now we’re back to our normal Sunday routine of tours and open houses. Today, some potential. […]
