Getting started with blogging...

Well here goes - my sister has convinced me to blog so I'm going to give it a try. I know it's been useful for keeping up with what she's doing, but really Mike and I don't have that exciting of a life right now - no pregnancy, no kids, just house stuff.

Right now we are working on trim all around the house. As I'm typing, Mike is in the bathroom installing trim. And we put up all our window treatments this week, too! And I keep saying that we don't have much left but seriously, if the trim gets all done, we really won't have anything on the inside left to do! I'm very excited though, because it makes such a difference. And then it's back to things I can help with - like painting and staining and the likes. Mike's parents are coming out some time in the spring or summer to help with the last few big things and we'll do landscaping and paint the outside of the house this spring, too, but other than that, we'll have to find more things to keep us busy. Go to and look for the albums titled "Before Renovations" and "During and After Renovations" to see where we have come from. And now that we have more things to show off, I'll post more pictures soon.


  1. Katie, I am so proud! I will definitely be checking in! Love you!

  2. P.S. Note I found your blog on my own the first day you blogged and you didn't even have to call or email me to tell me!

  3. How did you find it - did it show up on your dashboard or something?? Very cool! I'll be working on updating it soon - see I already have a new template!
