marshmallow snowman
Now that I have three kids, I've been crafting for my kids rather than myself. Seeing their awed and surprised faces gives me so much more joy than biting into a chocolate bouchon . Austin's favorite thing to have with breakfast is a mug of hot cocoa topped...

instant pot: Chinese braised short ribs

holiday candy cane tags
With just a few days until Christmas, I was somehow overcome with guilt that I didn't do anything for Austin's preschool friends for the holidays. I did plan a small gift for his closer friends, but not his whole class. And I know it is not expected of me t...

skeleton of the house
We've made a lot of progress since August, as you can see from the photo above. The framing is about 95% done, the roof is weather-proofed, and MEP rough-ins are in the works. There has been a few hiccups since the completion of our foundation, but not a ma...

bryant & hudson turn 1
I can't believe my babies turned 1 last month. It's official, my boys are now toddlers. First birthday parties are not really for the birthday child... children in our case. It's more for the parents to celebrate the fact that we survived the first year. Ga...

the permitting process
Construction started a little less than 2 months ago. So far we've got a structural slab and some steel columns to show for it. My last house post left off with acquiring permits. For this particular project, the drawings needed a stamp of approval from dif...
