And Then He Painted his Bike

During the school year I have a few mornings with just my youngest son because preschool is only four days a week for a couple of hours. Each morning after dropping off my older two kids I ask K-man what he would like to do this morning with me. This particular morning was like every other morning when he gets it in his head that we are going to paint, using his sisters acrylic paint. This is something that is messy when you use it as an adult, never mind when a four year old gets a hold of it. […]

Have you Ever Remodeled a Bathroom?

The ideas that flow into my head, as I sit here in search of a rental home in my local town I see various bathrooms. One home for rent, that sadly has already been taken, had 3 bathrooms and 4 bedrooms as well as a large yard. Can you imagine three bathrooms? Oh my loveliness. I would love to have a master bathroom to my own self, but then if I did get my own bathroom I would be sad that I couldn’t be able to remodel the bathroom, being that I rent not buy homes. If were to have […]

What are you going to be a Plumber when You Grow UP?

You know that old saying that people say when your butt is hanging out? “What are you going to be a plumber when you grow up” or maybe “your plumbers crack is showing” – please tell me you all have heard these two sayings before? I hope so. I swear people DO say these things, usually I say some plumber wise crack to my six year old who is forever having his bum hanging out of his pants, always. In all honesty, if you were to look up plumbing installation prices then you would realize these wise crack comments about […]

Carbon Monoxide Detector – Much Needed Home Item

When I moved into the home I am currently living in, the one thing that was missing was a carbon monoxide detector, you see I have always had one in each of the places I have lived because it’s called the silent killer. You can not smell, taste nor touch carbon monoxide. At least with smoke or fire you can smell it, taste it, etc same goes with propane, you can smell that from a mile away, stinky stuff. Most homes I visit seem to be up to par with having fire detectors but it’s very rare I see other […]

Making a Beautiful Dream Bathroom

When I own a bathroom, okay a house first then the bathroom within it, I would love to work on making my dream bathroom.  My true dream bathroom will not come until my children are old enough to respect the items I place within it which means there will be many years before I start putting any antique bathroom vanities in the bathrooms frequented by toddlers! I love the idea of an antique bathroom vanity because they are quite gorgeous in appearance and such an inviting piece of furniture! I would spend the brunt of my time in the bathroom […]

With Spring Cleaning Comes Home Renovations

I can’t believe it is almost the end of February and I am already thinking about Spring cleaning, but the grass is showing with the forty and fifty degree temps melting the snow fast here in NH. With Spring cleaning comes home renovations, I get all excited this time of year when the weather starts to turn to warmer and longer days because then we can start to plan on ideas for home renovations. Currently I am staying at my mother’s home until we determine what direction she is going in with this house so I won’t be doing any […]

Bedroom Furniture That Appeals to Me

I am often thinking about what type of furniture I would want in my bedroom if I were to do a bedroom makeover. I know that I tend to picture what my friends bedrooms look like based on their personality. For me, I have always wanted to have simple and affordable Bedroom Furniture. To start, a platform bed with storage space would certainly be my first pick for having my current queen size bed on. The platform bed would most certainly have to be black because my two favorite colors are black and purple, yes this has been my choice […]

Let’s pricemykitchen or Yours

I have a love/hate relationship with my kitchen so I am always on the look out for places like pricemykitchen. If anyone is doing a kitchen remodeling project they probably should first do a price comparison on kitchen equipment to ensure they get the best price for their remodeling project. I know I could use a new stove and maybe even a new sink or how about a new microwave? My wish list for my kitchen could go on and on but once again you are going to want to do a kitchen equipment price comparison prior to purchasing any […]

Here We Go Again

Kitchen sinks is the topic this week I swear! Maybe it is because I am so sick of looking at the sinks in my home and ready to purchase an Undermount Kitchen Sink so that I can smile when I hit the dish washer nights. I am the dish washer, I do not own a dish washer and even though my eight year old daughter would love to wash dishes as her chore I have a hard time letting her do this as a real chore due to her being gone to her Dad’s a few nights a week and […]

A Sink That Says Hello Mama

I dream of a shiny sink that looks pleasing to the eyes, right now my kitchen sink sucks and isn’t shiny at all, of course the home I own was a rental back before I bought it in 2005 and I can tell it wasn’t kept up with the way it should have been if someone were living in it and owned it versus renting it. The bathroom sink is a light blue color and no where near shiny. There are so many types of sinks out there and one is an undermount kitchen sink which I hadn’t ever heard […]
