Baby’s Room Reveal!

As promised…I am finally ready to show you how our little baby’s room came to be. First, it’s not really a room. We don’t have a bedroom for the baby. One of the biggest thumbs down for buying this house, was that there were only three finished bedrooms. We have a fourth unfinished bedroom in the…

Ineptitude Strikes Again

I’d like to blame the third trimester of pregnancy, commonly referred to as “pregnancy brain” to be the reason. If not that, then maybe fatigue…I mean, we did just power through a crazy month of building our goat shed and then I had to make the 3-hour drive (each way) to get the goats and…

And We Have Goats

I’d love to say that the day had finally arrived, but that’s not exactly the right way to word that. The goats are here! Five weeks earlier than we had planned on. That’s ok though. We were up for the challenge and built a goat shed in record time under some pretty tough working conditions….

Sweet Tooth

I don’t really crave sweets that often. Especially in this pregnancy, I’ve craved spicy and salty foods, like pickles, kimchi, and olives. But everyone else in the house has a sweet tooth that they like to appease quite often. That being said, if the sweets are here, I’m not going to just look at them….

So Tacky

This is so tacky, but I just have to share it with you. Meet the newest object of my obsessive love/hate relationships. Tack cloth. Basically, a nasty-sticky cheesecloth or gauze that works miracles and costs less than $1 per cloth. {Before I go any further, I just want to say that I am not endorsing…

Sweet Treat

We had some crazy warm temps this week. Between pregnancy hormones and the rising temperatures, this momma needed a cool treat. I’m trying to behave myself with the sweets, but with fruit, I don’t usually hold back. I love to make smoothies a couple of times a week and I put tons of fruit in…

I Can’t Wait Any Longer

Okay, okay. I can’t keep it to myself any longer. We bought Nigerian Dwarf goats! Four actually. We don’t get to bring them home until April. They are both due in March and in April the kids will be weaned onto bottles. We will be bringing home two male kids as well. So, that means…

It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like…

It’s beginning to look a lot like…Home. We’ve been in our home for 9 months now. For most of the time, this house has not felt like my home. It’s been tough for me to feel at home for a few reasons. I won’t go into all those reasons today. But mainly, the house hasn’t…

Frittata

As promised, a recipe to share with you. We obviously have an abundance of eggs around here, so you just know I would have an egg recipe to share, right? Start by heating some olive oil in the skillet, 1-2 tablespoons. When the oil is hot, add one diced onion, 2 teaspoons minced garlic, and…

This Is Plumb Crazy

The plumber was supposed to arrive during a 4-hour window in the afternoon. He was late and arrived after 6 pm for what was supposed to be an assessment with potential work beginning tomorrow. Except the situation was desperate enough for the plumber to start on it tonight. Backtrack a little Last week we had…

The Name 122

But as I typed in the domain name, onetwentytwo just poured out. I didn’t know where to start because I had so many ideas running through my head.
