It’s been a whopping eight months since I last checked out the blog-o-world. After doing a short stint at, then somehow resetting/forgetting/losing my password to blog, I had pretty much given up blogging.

But, today, here is sunny side Ohio the breeze is blowing and 70-degree temps have found their way to our front doors. I bought my first pot of mums for the season yesterday and the itch to again blog just hit me. So, here it goes.

Let’s start with an update:

1. Bought a house, adore it. Dumping money into it, sweating alot while working on it and in general every bum-day tee and yoga pant I own now has paint on it. Image

2. Still hanging out in grad school land…April 27, 2013 CANNOT come ANY sooner…for all you suffering and even not suffering through it, you know what I mean. (I should actually be writing a paper on JEDDs right now…) (If you don’t know what a JEDD is, don’t fret, you aren’t missing much.)

3. NEW JOB! I spend my days hanging out at a fabulous children’s musuem, fundraising to my heart’s content.. For a gal that’s never really been a big kid-person, this job ROCKS!

Uhh…that’s it. Sad? No? Yes? Probably. I promise I am more exciting than my list of three leads you to believe.

 Anyways, today I wanted to share a few before pictures of the house…we’ve been here since Friday January 13th. I am starting to think that Friday the 13ths are good luck…we’ve had so many this year, no? It’s all a work in progress and I promise I will try to get some blogs up with newer and updated pictures as we go along!

Peace for now, hotdogs!


Front of house: Day one


Day One: The bathroom needed some serious TLC. Holes in the wall=fabulous.


Day One: Living Room. Found out that there were THREE boarders in nearly each room.


Day One: Kitchen. That is all I have to say about that!!!


Day One: Master Bedroom/Loft.



Day One: Office and Spare Bedroom. Vommie carpet.


See you soon!

JKP Thrift-ista.

December 29, 2011

Always in the mood to thrift for good finds I did a power shop stop today at Platos Closet and was introduced to JPK Paris 75 Handbags. I scored my shiny new friend for a mere $18 (BIG spendin’ for a thrifter like myself…)! Man, I LOVE a good find!!!

Here is the JPK Handbag if you would like to check out these funky bags!

This season I got the Mr Mister in on the woodworkings! The rocking horse was already put together by his grandfather, so we got an easy out! After a little sanding, paint and quite a few mishaps this was the end result:



Big thanks to Emilee for this image as I forgot to take any, oops!

Ride ’em cowboy! Ha ha ha!

So, how about you, how did you spend your holidays?

Hey Hey Hey!

December 6, 2011

To make a really long story short, it looks like the sign-in button on has disappeared? And I have given up on trying to get it back…so looks like the WordPress blog is back rockin’ and rollin’!

To make up for our serious lack of blogging on both here and, I have decided I will share the first part of my new journey here first! I hope to use this new “project”, which I have lovingly deemed Albert, for some major blogging inspiration. Anyways, here goes nothin’…meet Albert:

He is a 71 year old home…and a small money pit 🙂

Here are a few of the first “before” shots:

The vents are by far my favorite part of the home…they remind me of giant church doors! The little guy needs some work, but with a some sweat, tears and hopefully no blood (or I will be passing out…) he will be good as new! PLUS it will give me some good stuff to blog about 🙂

xo ❤ Lee at Crazy A!
