Tonight…

We’re kicking off 2012 with a BANG… quite literally. That’s the beginning phase of our new home office. Because nothing screams FUN like home renovations at all hours of the night while you keep your fingers crossed you don’t wake the baby.

Hope you all have a wonderful night, and Happy New Year! See ya in 2012.

  1. How tall are your ceilings Jill? I have always wanted to do this with our front room because it is a wasted space (supposed to be a living room). But we have 20+ foot ceilings in that area so I am thinking it would look weird…..

    1. Ours are only 10 feet. I imagine 20 feet would be really, really hard to DIY. I hate those giant “formal” spaces, though. Such a waste for the way families like ours live.

  2. Ha! So true. Five years ago me would be horrified by last night me, but I couldn’t be happier, especially not feeling terrible today! Happy New Year!

  3. Hey! John could come give you a hand! He’s added a wall too. I wanted an office in our first condo, so he framed the whole thing out, and even installed these BEAUTIFUL french doors. A family friend taught him how to do it. I was so proud!!! I only got to enjoy it for a year before we moved, but it was nice while it lasted. Congrats on your new office.

  4. Ha! My 17 year-old asked me last night if I have ever been “toddler wasted” (so drunk you crawl around) I laughed as I thought back to “those days” and then said “No, of coarse not”, Ah the nights when I could drink and not worry about what “I come home to”. Yep they grow up, too! Good luck on your office project!

  5. Hahahahahah we spent ours putting in another bathroom, well framing for it! Yay to exciting NYE! NYE is my wedding anniversary too, that’s how “fun” we are, celebrating it with reno’s.

  • Does bedtime change during the summer? Or does it stay the same all year? 🌙
  • We didn’t find any banana slugs on this 2 mile loop trail, but it did gift us with a bench. Calling that a win!  #mothernurturemothernature
  • You don’t get paid for this. You do it because you’re a dad, and that’s just what dads do. #happyfathersday2018
  • So grateful to have a partner who picks up what I drop, kisses the booboos I miss, reads the bedtime stories I have to work through, and loves our kids in ways I aspire to. Happy Fathers Day to him and all the dads who are doing this exhausting and exhilarating thing called parenthood 💖
  • It’s estimated 2,000 children (some as young as one) have been taken from their parents at our border in the last 6 weeks alone. MANY of these families are asylum seekers and it is not illegal to seek asylum. They left horrific conditions not because they want to break our laws or lose their children but because they want their children to live. Please join me and my friends from all over the political spectrum to oppose this unnecessary and cruel mandate that is traumatizing children and ripping families apart with no clear plan or guarantee for reunification. This is not a Democrat or Republican issue- it’s a HUMAN issue. I can not stay silent about this. My latest blog post has links and a script you can read to your Rep & Senators when you call them. It’s so easy to DO SOMETHING. Check out my FB Live to watch me call my reps. #familiesbelongtogether
