Welcome to my little corner of the world! I’m currently a stay at home mom (job searching after being laid off 6-months ago). I have 2 boys, Jay (4) and Luke (4 months) and my husband Matt. We also have an 80-pound lap dog named Diesel.

Two years ago we built a house out in the “country”–FAR west Chicago suburbs. It’s a colonial style home with 4 bedrooms and 2.5 baths. We have spent the last 2 years (and counting) making it our own. My goal for this site is to share a great deal of home decorating ideas/renovation projects as well as general mom observations.

Word of caution: I have a sarcastic and sometimes dry sense of humor that I attribute to my husband. Being thrown into stay at home mom life has been nothing short of a shock to my system. I’m a human resources career woman by trade. Many of my comments will be raw mom truths to help me keep my sanity.

I do hope you enjoy my corner of the world and what I have to share with you! I promise to always try to be honest in my commentary and link where I buy everything in my home renovation posts.
