Laundry Room Design

June 18, 2020

laundry room design

When we finished out our daylight basement, we made the plans to have a laundry room, and convert the upstairs laundry room into a larger pantry. We didn’t realize we were moving then of course, so this February we decided to finish it up. I will be honest this may be one of the hardest rooms to let go of when we move because oh my gosh! The laundry room is now a peaceful oasis that I want to live in!


Father’s Day Gift Guide 2020

June 12, 2020

Coming up for air in between selling a home and buying one! We keep Father’s Day pretty simple, and I usually pick out a few gifts for the kids to give their dad, they make homemade cards, and we make a big brunch. I always consult Gabe for these gift guides because he has a much better knack for finding cool things he would actually use. We wanted to include a range of options at different price points too. Hope this is helpful!

1. Aviators – With little ones, our sunglasses tend to conveniently disappear quite often. For this reason, I never like to spend more than $20 for a pair. Gabe loves aviators, and I like the pricepoint and style of these!

Utility Magnetic Wristband – A reader recommended this to us, so I ordered it over Christmas. Gabe has used and loved it for home projects. A very useful and cost friendly gift.

Grill Tools Set – We were gifted a grill tools set for our wedding and we have put them to good use! I loved the price point of this set, and I think any guy could use a good flipper for burgers.

Baseball Stadium Posters – Gabe is a huge Brewers fan so he got super excited about these stadium prints. You can order just about any stadium!

Utility Work Apron – Really helpful in shielding your clothes from getting damaged when working on anything around the home or even grilling in your backyard.

Painter’s Tape Dispenser – I wish we would have found this sooner. A nifty painter’s tape dispenser for masking off areas for staining, texturizing, sanding, and painting.

Storage Hook Straps – It may not look like a fun gift, but they have multiple purposes! You can even hang bikes from these in your garage.

Camping Tent – I got Gabe a Coleman tent a while ago and it has held up so well. We have even done backyard camping with one similar to this.

Campfire Fishing Pole – For the guy who is hard to shop for. Roast marshmallows or hot dogs on this campfire fishing pole:)

Cordless Drill Set – Gabe uses this weekly around here. It is his top rec for a good duo drill set.

Personalized Leather Wallet – Etsy always has some good gift ideas. This looks like a quality option with a great variety of personalization options.

Personalized Leather Doppler Bag I like the color and initial options for these, and could be used for multiple purposes!

Personalized Pocket Knife – I want to get one of these for my dad!

Need more ideas? Here is another recent gift guide we have shared.

We have a home tour and updated videos coming up in a few weeks, but wanted to create an easy reference post for paint colors! I would have love to add a few more color options to rooms, but will have to save that for the next home. Every room below has the paint color name below it (we mainly used eggshell finish).

Front Porch Facelift

May 8, 2020

We really needed to give out front porch a face lift before listing it on the market, so we made a few changes! Swept, power washed, painted, and spruced to get a much more inviting hang spot.

Our tentative moving timeline!

April 21, 2020

​​​​​​​It feels like we might jinx something by sharing this tentative move out timeline;) However, I promised to share this process with you all so here it goes! Moving during a time when many public places are closed will make it very difficult to get out of the house with kids during showings, etc. so we weren’t sure how to go about this at first. After a lot of thought and scenario hashing here is what it will come down to…​​​​​​​


A big Patio decor and patio furniture sale round up!

April 19, 2020

All this time at home and in our own backyard got me to do the all of things I was avoiding like power washing the deck and outdoor rugs, washing the cushion covers, and getting the patio cleaned up. What a difference it makes to have a little space for frequent fresh air breaks. There are a bunch of patio decor and furniture sales going on this weekend, so wanted to pass along the best sales and finds below!
