House Updates


Hey Friends!

I hope you have had a great week.  I am still trying to get my bearings from being gone all last week.

It seems that I brought a little “bug” home with me that has reeked havoc on my digestive system.  I’m headed to the doctor today in hopes of getting some relief.

Please say a prayer that I start feeling better soon.

In the meantime, I just wanted to tell you of a few projects that we have started and will be sharing with you soon on my blog.

First of all, we have gotten some more completed on my office, and I love the way it is turning out.

I have created a great memo board for below my cabinets that I will share with you soon.

And we are making progress on the other side of the room too!



We still have a long way to go in the office, but we are getting there.  Do you see the potential? Smile


We’ve also started painting the exterior of our house!!!  Woo to the hoo!!! I have been wanting to do this every since we moved in to this house 2 years ago!!!

I found the perfect paint color for the brick, and I also found the perfect color for our shutters and front door.  I will share that with you soon.


That’s all for now, but I just wanted to drop in and let you know I am still alive.  Hee.Hee.

I’m headed to the doctor now.


I pray you have a blessed day!!!


  1. So sorry you’re not feeling well! Your office space is looking fantastic! How do you stay so organized doing as much as you do?

    Get well soon.


  2. OH NO! you are painting the brick… father would be shaking his head…lol. it will sure look different when finished. Will be lovely I’m sure, just like the rest of your home improvements.

    You should be feeling better soon, those “bugs” can sure bring you down, though.

    Just fyi, I checked out Compassion on and was very pleased with their rating, particularly the ratio of money that goes directly to helping vs. Admin costs. I hope to soon be a proud sponsor of a child. I would not have heard of Compassion if not for your blog. Thank you for educating me in so many ways besides awesome decorating.

  3. So sorry you are dealing with digestive distress! I am one of those people who NEVER gets sick when I travel outside of the US (and yes, I’ve had the water in Mexico), but the minute I have fast food or a large amount of sugar, I get chills and gut issues.

    Love the progress on the office and can’t wait to see the outside paint! L-O-V-E painted brick!

  4. So sorry you are sick after such an incredible week. We will pray that you feel better soon.

    Your office is really shaping up. I really like the window seats. (a place for the boys to set) You and Cy do a beautiful job together, what a great team.

  5. I feel your pain. I got sick after a mission tip to Brazil. The advice from the Mission’s pastor was “do not eat any food from the street vendors” should have been heeded. Everyone that ate it, got sick, the ones who didn’t were fine. I’m just enough of an adventurist that I had to try it. LOL. Paid for it too. I hope you feel better soon. Your house is looking awesome!

    1. Oooh, you do know how I feel. :( I didn’t eat from the street vendors, but I definitely got it somehow. I’m feeling better now, though.
