Hi y’all! Thanks for stopping by! I’ve been wanting to blog for, oh I don’t know, ever?!?! I decided to finally bite the bullet and join all the other bloggers. This first post I will just give you guys a little info and maybe share a few pics.
I’m Steph, a 30 year old (shhhh don’t tell anyone) military wife and stay at home mom. My hubs has served for a loooong time in the military and it has landed us in Omaha, Nebraska. I’m an AZ girl born and raised so the cold is NOT my friend. I can’t wait to get to move back home some day and wear my flip flops in Dec 😉
I have 3 awesome, hilarious, sweet, but sometimes naughty kiddos. My oldest is a 6 year old little boy. He is definitely the easiest of the bunch! I also have 3 year old identical twin girls. They are funny, smart, and oh so full of attitude! Somehow I ended up with 3 blonde hair and blue eyed kids who are even cuter then I could have ever imagined…guess I just got lucky in the adorable offspring department haha
At night after the kiddies have gone to bed you can find me out in the garage building or making a disaster in my kitchen. I liketo the call the kitchen the “Paint workshop”. I started building furniture about 2 years ago after I stumbled on Ana White’s blog (www.ana-white.com). Seriously people, check her out! She literally changed my life with her easy to follow plans. Almost every single piece of furniture is made following her plans…some I follow exactly and some I tweak to be exactly what I need. I am slowly furnishing my house with hand built beautiful items. I have also started selling stuff to people who don’t have the desire to build themselves. This definitely helps fund my building addiction!
I am not the most creative person but I find the more that I do, the more the creative juices get-a-flowin! I do love crafting, sewing, cooking, baking, and pretty much anything else along those lines. I love DIY, beautiful homes, pretty things, bright colors, and dark wood stains. I’m a huge nerd so expect plenty of nerdiness—-and made up words apparently! Thanks for stopping by and I would love it if you would follow me!
