The BEST kids clothes organization tip

Okay, let’s talk about kids clothes. I have four sons that are fairly close in age, which means when it comes to clothing them I pretty much have it made. So far I’ve only had to buy (or am gifted, gotta love grandparents) clothes for #1, and then #2, #3 and #4 all get his hand me downs. None of them are at the age yet where they care what they … [Read more...]



Breezeway Makeover and Family Dinners: No Excuses Edition

For years now Adam and I have said we should start hosting big family dinners at our house once a month, and for years now we have come up with excuses not to. Either we were too busy, or the old house was too crowded, or the new house was too unfinished, or a variety of other things.  We ran out of excuses after laying sod a few weeks ago though, … [Read more...]



What I Learned on the Whole30

The other day a reader commented and said “I need to know how the Whole30 went!” Did you finish it?” and then I realized that I never posted part II of our January Whole30 adventure. I figured posting it now, as I sit here knee-deep in my kids Easter candy is fitting, right? So keep reading if you are interested, and if not come back next week when … [Read more...]



2016 Year In Review

Alright y’all, here comes one heck of a post. I’ve been chipping away at it for months...it’s pretty much my masterpiece. Enjoy.  2016 was a great year. Adam and I worked on building our house, moved into it, sold our old house for more than we thought we would, had a baby, and  generally lots of amazing things happened. That being said, it has … [Read more...]



Whole30 – A Journal of the First Two (Really Hard) Weeks

You might be thinking “Whatttt...a food post on Domestic Imperfection?” Yeah, a food post. Actually, a post about a diet Adam and I are doing as our January New Years resolution called Whole30. You may have heard of it, it’s kinda the new “fad” diet...very similar to Paleo but even stricter. I know this is totally not the normal kind of post around … [Read more...]



Four Boys and a Man on a Mission

I figured that after a month of silence it was about time for an update on the baby and life in general, so here we go. Let’s start at the beginning...the day Abram was born. I’m one of those women that is chronically overdue with babies and I expected nothing less with this one... I don’t think I even packed my hospital bag until after my … [Read more...]

We are … [Read more...]



The Boy’s Room – Then, Now, and Future Plans

So today let’s talk about the boy's room.   The room is 12 x 15 and will be shared by my older two boys. If you regularly read the blog than you’ve seen pictures of it while under construction...but here they are again (mostly to remind me that we’ve already come a long way and aren't just beginning...because it’s true, but I … [Read more...]



How We Sold Our House in One Day

This post started off as a simple “tips to sell your house quickly” post...but then it just couldn’t stop writing and it kinda turned into a brain dump on everything. So keep reading if you want to hear about how we sold our house in a day (for over the asking price!), how much profit we made, the final house tour, and other various thoughts on the … [Read more...]



Life and Pregnancy Update

Hey everyone! SO sorry I fell off the face of the earth right after dropping that pregnancy bomb, my computer died and has been in the repair shop. I tried to get it fixed through Apple, but they quoted me $500 to get it working again...which I just can't/won't do. Fortunately I found a local guy to get it working again for about … [Read more...]



Boys + Bluebonnets = Four (obviously)

If you live in the Texas hill country, springtime bluebonnet pictures are a must. They’re practically a requirement to live here...I’ve heard rumors that if you don’t take at least one bluebonnet picture each year they kick you out of the state. Each spring for the 6-8 weeks the bluebonnets are out you can find cars pulled over on the side of the … [Read more...]



Round Top Antiques Fair

The weekend before last Adam and I went to Round Top for their giant antiques fair, which is one of the biggest and best in the country.   Last year I went for the first time and was blown away by how insanely huge and amazing it is. It is miles and miles and MILES of fields and pastures, barns and tents bursting with unique old … [Read more...]



2015 Year in Review

(I started writing this post mid-December with the best intentions of getting it out the first week in January, but that obviously didn’t happen. Each time I sat down to collect pictures I got super distracted looking at old photos. I was even going to make a year in review video (I have so many videos!) but I eventually had to tell myself it was … [Read more...]



The Four Month Jellyfish

Does anyone remember a few months ago when I was trying to find something to hang above my bed? (I totally don't blame you if you have no idea what I'm taking about.) Well, I ended up buying the jellyfish poster that I loved so much. It's from Great Big Canvas, an online store that sells artwork. They have about a billion different artwork choices … [Read more...]



The Flood

This last Memorial Day Texas was hit by devastating floods. It's hard to imagine now since it hasn't rained all summer and everything is crispy and dry, but there was water everywhere and it simply wouldn't stop coming. It's either feast or famine around here (though usually famine). My five-year old son has been telling everyone he meets (the … [Read more...]

So this post is going to be a bit of back story on the house, and in the next few posts I'll share our inspiration pics and floor plan.

How we’ve been spending our weekends (a land update)

When I first introduced y'all to the property we are building our house on it was the middle of winter and nothing was green. Well, I'm happy to say that is no longer the case! (these were taken before all the crazy flooding here in Texas) The creek is gorgeous. There are SO MANY ferns that you can't even get to the water, and the … [Read more...]



An update on Judah and life with three kids

I think it's high time for a baby update. I can sense that y'all want one, I can feel everyone thinking "curtains, saloon doors, lampshades, whatever...show me the baby!" Okay, FINE. If y'all are going to force me to show pictures of my adorable new son, then I guess I will. Just don't expect me to like it. Okay, let's just get all the … [Read more...]

He arrived on Wednesday, March 18th at 11:27 am. Not by choice though, he had to be forced out. Truth be told, if it was up to me I would have … [Read more...]



Ten home improvement projects I won’t be repeating

  1. Raw mdf trim Adam and I have replaced all the trim in our house (except the master bedroom, but we'll get there) and have learned a lot. We started out in the living room and chose 6 inch raw MDF that we routed ourselves (because money was our biggest concern). We ended up doing this in all the main areas of the house so that … [Read more...]
