Sewing Gifts

Before our little one arrives, I wanted to get a few sewing items out of the way so I didn’t have to worry about them later. Also, both of these family members had birthdays before she was due, and I didn’t want them waiting half the year for me to finally get cracking and sew them their stuff. I also had a complete pregnancy brain moment, and forgot to take any pictures of the stuff I made, but both people sent me pictures without me even having to ask which was awesome!

How we Reinforced our Ikea Drawers

So we currently have an Ikea dresser which has held up very well considering we bought it used. We have wanted to build ourselves some real wooden bedroom furniture,but for a while we didn’t know where we would be living or how much room we would have whenever we did get a house. So, now that we have a house, we still plan to build ourselves new bedroom furniture. However, our current set still functions very well, so we haven’t really gotten to that point since there are so many other things that are a higher priority for us. Our...

My Standing Desk for $50

I have been having weird issues with my back/shoulder. No pain, but I noticed a while ago that one shoulder was higher than the other.

Two months ago, I started going once a week to this spine care specialist/chiropractor(all of the hospitals and physical rehab places only refer to him). Anyway, he looked at my shoulder and said it is an easy fix because there is no damage yet,but if I had waited...

Our place is slowly coming together, and here are some updated pictures of what we have been up to. As I mentioned in the last post, we needed some things from Ikea, and unfortunately the closest one is now in Atlanta. We would have loved to visit Simon and Sarah since from the Ikea we were only 2 hours away,but we did this trip on Friday of our first week in the area, and we had too much to unpack before we both started work full time on the following Monday. Not to mention, it would have been short notice...

Our First Days in Huntsville

As I mentioned in a Previous Post, we were able to move into our Condo on Tuesday, and below are some of the pictures of our condo. We will be here for at least one year, and it is insane how much more room we have. We went from a 720 Sq. Ft.  1 bedroom one bathroom Apartment to a 1200 Sq. Ft. 2 bedroom 2 bathroom Condo for only $20 more a month. 1 warning, these are all before pictures as we unpack. We still have a TON to unpack since we did so many other errands and now...
