Currently: September 2020

It’s been WAY too long since I wrote a Currently post. But I can easily sum up April, May, June, July, and August– stayed home, cooked, read, and tried to stay active. If this year hasn’t been a doozy for you then you must live in a bubble, under a rock, on a different planet.…

Repairing Drywall After Installing Drain Tile

Remember when our crawlspace flooded? It was terrible, but the saving grace was that the finished part of the basement stayed dry. Until this year. We noticed a smell and then felt the water under our socks. Isn’t that the worst feeling ever? I do not recommend. So we folded back the carpet and did…

Basic Home Gym Equipment

Other than when the crawl space flooded, I don’t think I’ve talked much about our basement. But now, I have all the basic home gym equipment set up! Gym closed? Bad weather? No more excuses for not working out!

Since moving in, I haven’t touched the office much, other than hanging my medal rack. You’ll notice that even our (very expensive) diplomas still aren’t hung. At…

Currently: June & July 2019

Time flies when you’re having fun! I even forgot to do a May Currently, but I’m back at it with a recap of June and July. You can see from the photo that we’re making progress with our living room makeover, but it’s been low on the priority list.

Formal Living Room Before + Design Plan

When we first moved to our Cincinnati house we joked about having a formal living room. I associate them with furniture you can’t sit on, carpet you can’t walk on, and floral patterns that hurt your eyes. So instead of putting any thought into our formal living room, we just dropped our basement furniture and…

Hiding Things

I struggled to come up a topic to write about this week! Nothing “big” is happening right now, but I have been hiding things all around the house! In the spirit of hiding things- I had to hide my nose the other day when I ran in 10-degree weather! ๐Ÿ™‚
