    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!

    Finally, after months and months of debating, I pulled the trigger and bought a rug. This one from @westelm has been a favorite of mine and I'm excited to add it to our house. On sale for under $300! Sorting white marble tile by color. So far I have four distinct colors. Yes, I'm only a few steps away from being committed. #ohakitchenreno Couldn't resist French burnt peanuts for today's mid afternoon pick me up.

On Christmas Eve

We’re in full Christmas celebration mode here.  Over the weekend, we did plenty of baking including spritz cookies, pizzelles, and gingerbread dough.  Oh, and lefse.  Ben practiced his tossing skills on the lefse, and now he’s itching to make home made pizzas.

This morning, we rolled out the gingerbread dough and made cookies.

Now we’re cleaning up and enjoying a warm fire.

We wish you and your family a very merry Christmas!  We’ll see you back here, probably Wednesday.
