Let's BLOG!!!

Hey Guys!!

Instead of posting EVERYTHING my projects on Facebook, I thought it would be a little easier if I describe all updates on the house on a blog!

Enter: Little House in the Big D

Our House: little.

Where we live: Dallas... the Big D....

(and yes, Dallas really does look like this all the time... .... ... not really)

ANYWAY... I thought this might be worth giving a shot for those people (aka my parents and family out-of-state) to stay well connected with what Chris and I are doing and improving on our little 1450 sq ft house.

A little back story on our 1940's house: its old.... and I mean that in a totally cute, charming, please-dear-God-fix-me sorta way. Chris and I bought it back in May and have been slowly fixing it up and adding our little touches along the way.

(Chris often poses like this when he's completing projects)

First of all, let me just state that we really have no clue what we are doing... we are just REALLY good at trial and error. Or maybe its just that CHRIS knows what he's doing, and I'm just kind of acting along... (so to clarify, I have no idea what I'm doing). But we are just enjoying fixing little things and trying new things... they might not always looks perfect, or agree with everyone's style, but we're having fun and enjoying learning bit by bit.

Anyway, we have some project that we've already done that I'll probably post on here as well, but hopefully we'll have some new projects loaded weekly.

Im a big garage/yard sale hunter and love fixing things up, so there will probably be a lot of those posts, but hopefully it will give some people and idea for what can be done with a sad, forgotten, piece of furniture...
($5 chair from a yard sale... now a demanding piece of spray-painted awesomeness... or at least I think so...)

So here we go... let me know what you guys think... I LOVE FEEDBACK!!!


  1. This is a great idea! I wanted Michelle to look at all your awesome work, but she wasn't friends with you on FB, but now she can look at your blog! Now I want you to go back and put everything on the blog because I brag about you!!

  2. They attempt to excuse their loan shark fees and rates
    to be attractive and loan unsecured loans bad credit terms to be flexible.
    However, it was purported, would cost borrowers
    2, 162 pounds in interest over the course of last year, all in default?

  3. Hi there great website! Does running a blog like this take a large amount of
    work? I've no knowledge of coding but I had been hoping
    to start my own blog in the near future. Anyways,
    if you have any recommendations or tips for new blog owners please share.
    I understand this is off subject nevertheless I simply needed to ask.
    Thanks a lot!

  4. Hey! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any trouble with hackers?
    My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing
    a few months of hard work due to no back up. Do you have any solutions to
    prevent hackers?

  5. Another is the Finch Bay Eco Resort, an award winning hotel
    with its own beach. This kind of luxury is all about your individual requirements and dreams
    for the perfect winter break, and perhaps the
    little things you haven. These charters are strongly built
    keeping into mind safety of all those who will board the cruise, even the ones who
    take the trip as adventure.
