Job/porch/kitchen…jobporchen?

I'm 6 weeks into my new job! The commute is insane but the money is good, the hours are decent (9 hour days, but I get every other Friday off!) and I actually super love working in the same office as my mom, except when she comes to my desk and steals my peanut butter… Continue reading Job/porch/kitchen…jobporchen?

Mission: Curb Appeal.

Status: ACCOMPLISHED. Holy hell, what a weekend to be a Fisher.  We are done with our front yard transformation!  A HUUUUUGE thank you to my parents, my brother, and my grandma for all their help.  Our house would be much uglier without all of you, you guys are the greatest, and we love you a… Continue reading Mission: Curb Appeal.

Kelsey The Gardener

After the world's longest weekend of gardening, our front yard is almost done!  Anthony worked all weekend (boo) but my parents and my brother Brian were able (and mostly willing!) to come over Saturday and Sunday and help me put the yard together. Brian and Dad busted their asses to build the fence on the… Continue reading Kelsey The Gardener

The most beautiful dirt in the world

Our yard is coming together!  The driveway and porch are dry, we are loving parking on the gigantic megadriveway. This is from last week, before the new driveway was dry.

Even though we aren't done with the kitchen yet, we've been really… Continue reading Curb Appeal & Priorities

A productive week, indeed!

It's been quite the week!  We've gotten a lot done, I'm very proud of us.  I'm also very ready to be done doing anything for the rest of the month, because DUDE. We got our carpets installed last week, and they look amazing.  It took longer than anticipated (all day Monday, and then he had… Continue reading A productive week, indeed!

We did it!

We are 90% done with our January kitchen makeover!  We worked our asses off this weekend, and it paid off, but this is kind of how I feel right now: The flooring project didn't go quite as smoothly as we had hoped.  Mom and I got started and then got panicked and made a desperate… Continue reading We did it!

Calm, collected, TOTALLY NOT PANICKING

Well, this week has taken an interesting turn. The initial plan to simply re-tile the floors this weekend has been thrown out the window and replaced with a plan to re-tile the floors, cover countertops, patch gigantic holes in our wall, reattach cabinets to the wall, reattach dishwasher to cabinets, install new backsplash over newly… Continue reading Calm, collected, TOTALLY NOT PANICKING
