Home Improvement

Old Houses. New Houses. Blue Houses. Two Houses: Renovating a Florida Beach Bungalow

It’s a very lazy Saturday morning here at the babe cave. I am here where I always find myself in the early morning, butt planted on the mini, gray loveseat in front of the window that always seems to find the morning light. This is my happy place in the morning. Especially when the rain is falling like it is now and I have a steaming mug of some kind of modern-day witches brew aka coffee, warming my hands. It’s been a busy week for me, definitely not in terms of work, because in the flight attendant world, winter is hibernation time. In the Summertime, I get called to work almost every day but in the winter, I sit, and I sit, and I sit some more. I don’t necessarily sit around, but I don’t get called to work if I don’t want to.

That was two years ago and though I can’t say that I turned this house into a home, because it felt like home from the beginning: I have slowly made this house into something that I believe to be beautiful – and that’s the whole point isn’t it?

Little House in the Carolinas: Kitchen Remodel Reveal

So.. Very exciting news!  We just passed my one year anniversary of being in my favorite little house. The not so exciting news.. I am sick. Picked up this nasty little cold in Pheonix, then almost blew my little ear drums out on the way to Havana. So here I sit with my box of Kleenex and finally enough time to sit down and write! Sorry to all those passengers out there, your favorite flight attendant is under construction at the moment. (more…)

A Beautiful Disaster: TV Cabinet Flip

Hello and Happy Friday!!! I am sitting on my couch right now doing what every normal millennial baby would do and I am putting off some major cleaning by writing this post. Cleaning is so not my fav, but this little abode definitely needs a good bath. So if you haven’t already heard this I just recently moved into my first home (post coming soon to tell you about my roller coaster house journey) and the good news of the day is.. All the moving is finished!! No more moving! YAY. Only cleaning 🙄. (more…)
