• So close!

    So close!

    It’s almost time!! I close in 13 days! They have really kicked it into gear on the house. And I absolutely love it. I don’t have much to say about it yet, but here are some progress pictures! I will definitely be adding some cabinets to the laundry room for storage. Those wire shelves are […]

  • Decisions, decisions…

    Decisions, decisions…

    So, I close on the house in about three weeks. My dad has offered to install my kitchen backsplash while he’s in town that weekend. Yay! But now I have to decide….. 🤔 This photo is essentially how my kitchen will look (except flipped). I did not opt for the subway tile because it was […]

  • It’s starting to look like a real house now!

    The kiddo and I sneaked over to the house today to have a look at the progress. We were not disappointed. It’s really starting to look and feel like a house now! I can actually visualize where furniture and decor will go. And now for my favorite part of the house…I upgraded to include the […]

  • Progress!


    Oh boy! Much excite. I stopped by the house today and there was a bunch of progress. It seems like the builder is right on schedule, which is awesome. Knock on wood. The first thing I noticed is that they have put siding on most of the house. They have done the sides and the […]

    The one where Missy decides to build a house 🏡

    I’ve talked about this some on Facebook and Instagram, but I thought it would be fun to start documenting my new home’s progress here. This may be a total snoozefest for lots of readers, but I know some of y’all are home improvement and home decor enthusiasts just like me, so this one is for […]

  • Building Stuff

    Building Stuff

    This afternoon, I was down at my apartment complex’s dog park with the boys, throwing a ball with the insatiable Murphy. And I had a moment that took the air out of my lungs. That happens to me sometimes. A moment of awareness that yes, this is my life now. More than a year later, […]

    2021 – The Year of Rediscovery

    So, if you’re close to me, you’ve probably heard me talk about the fact that 2020 was my year of self-care. I’m a classic Enneagram type 2, so I’m always taking care of everyone but myself. For years, I had neglected both my physical health and my mental health. After my ex-husband and I separated, […]

  • Where to begin…

    Where to begin…

    I’ve been meaning to start up this blog for months now, but to be honest, have procrastinated hardcore because I don’t even know where to begin. 2020 was weird. There was a global pandemic. My husband and I separated and divorced. I moved back home to the Indianapolis area. I got another dog. 2021 is […]
