• About Us

    Hey there! I'm Amanda and I'll be your co-pilot today. Along with my handy husband, Ben, we're remodeling our second house. We're avid DIY-ers, tackling large and small projects while raising two rambunctious boys. Thanks for following along on this wild journey!

    Thinking of adding this small sign I made to the kitchen. Problem is, I don't want to drill into the marble because I'll probably change my mind later on and don't want to leave holes. This measures 12 by 25 inches and isn't too heavy. Think command strips could hold this in place? "Mom always said, don't play ball in the house." said in my best whiny Bobby Brady voice. Hope your start to this Friday is better than cleaning up broken, spilled plants. Only up from here! Our weather has finally caught up with the season change. Fall weather calls for homemade roasted tomato basil soup with a Parmesan crisp and toasty garlic bread. Yum! Ben thought I was crazy baking cheese on a cookie sheet, but I stand by that decision 100 percent. What are you having for dinner?
