The Most Embarrassing Post I’ve Ever Written

(horrible) star bedroom

Three years ago today I started Domestic Imperfection. For the first two blogiversaries I put together giveaways as a thank you to my readers for all the support. This year I didn't plan anything though, mostly because it's a whole lot of work and only one or two people win things. So instead I'm going to do something better...I'm going to … [Read more...]

Levi’s One! (A Year Of Pictures)

one year old

Today is my little Levi's first birthday. I can't decide if I'm really excited about it, or completely sad. I want him to be my sweet little baby forever, but at the same time each day he becomes more fun and lets me see a little more of his adorable personality. Also, the older he gets the more him and Elijah play, and that is certainly a good t … [Read more...]



You Asked…

You asked, we answered! Here is the video Adam and I made last night answering all the questions ya'll asked a few weeks ago.  It's not quite as through as I would have liked, but evidently YouTube will only let you upload videos that are 10 minutes or less. I didn't want to make two videos, so I had to cut it down and this is what we ended up wit … [Read more...]



When My Blog Grows Up

Lately I've been thinking a lot about I want my blog to be when it grows up. It's grown a lot recently and I can foresee it becoming an actual full time job in the future. Which, let me say, is amazing. When I started this blog I never ever ever would have believed that it would become what it has. Sharing my projects with y'all is seriously the mos … [Read more...]



Six Months and Two

IMG_3482W

Warning: There are absolutely NO creative ideas in this post. It's chock full of adorable kid pictures and me gushing about how cute they are and how fast they're growing. That's it. Consider yourself officially warned. Friday Levi turned six months old. It went by so quickly... it seems like just yesterday that I wrote this post all about having … [Read more...]

I’m A Tan Van Fan

img_0086w

Perhaps I'm uncool, or maybe I just appreciate function over form, but I'm super excited about my new minivan! We bought it last week after casually shopping for more months than I care to admit. It's a 2004 Honda Odyssey....tan leather interior, fully loaded and only 72,000 miles. Okay, perhaps that not considered "new" to most people, but it's p … [Read more...]



One Month

My sweet little Levi turned one month old yesterday.   The month flew by, though at the same time it has been the longest month of my life. Only a parent can understand how both statements can be 100% true.He has grown like a weed. He is already at nearly 11 pounds and 22.5 inches. How in the world did he grow 4 inches in one month? Before long he a … [Read more...]



Kickin It Old School – Our First Apartment

Recently our laptop broke, and as I was transferring all our photos over to the new computer I noticed I had a bunch of pictures of our apartment in NY. I thought ya'll might be interested to see, so here we go! This is the outside of our b … [Read more...]

Our Pink Nightmare

        My Husband and I recently bought our first house. Besides the usual 3 bed/2bath list of wants, a had two biggies on the list. 1) I do not want to be able to see into my neighbors window from inside mine. In fact, I don't really want to be able to see my neighbors house at all. 2) I want the house to need some work. As a former Realtor I can … [Read more...]
