Floor plans

I’m doing a completely separate blog post just for the floorplan of this house. It’s kinda confusing and I didn’t want to overload you last week. Ya know, because one post per week is my max these days. So this house is kind of a split level. I say ‘kind of’ because this isn’t one…

I have 2 pictures of Husband…

Does this look familiar? It should. It kinda looks like the before pic from this little project from the Houston house. This is the bathroom btw. “Too much shit” is a recurring theme in this apartment. So I begged and pleaded for Husband to install a shelf above the door in the bathroom. I need…

Cleaning Out My Closet

We have the largest closet I have ever seen in a Manhattan apartment of this size. We may have a hoarding problem. Husband has like 64 ties. (take a wild guess how often he wears them) I mean, is this really necessary? Are you ready to see evidence of Husbands our clothing hoarding problem? Not horrible.…

It Doesn't Have to be Perfect..

I’m linking up with Nesting Place today. Her motto for the year (forever?) is “it doesn’t have to be perfect to be beautiful” Love that. I’m trying to embrace this philosophy more on my blog. There has been more than once where I get all dressed, go outside, take photos and come in and look…
