Check It

I made this baby (mostly)

Then I made this hat

Then we finished finishing our basement (so. much. painting)
I cannot figure out why YouTube is against me. Link for video here

I just want to state for the record that the color is not green, nor is it teal, as Brad would have you believe. TURQUOISE. Specifically, Valspar's Day at the Jeweler. I am still excited that I thought to cut the main color with white to use inside the built-in area. Pinterest has made me a better person for sure.

And here is the link to the magazine article they paid me monies for writing.  I'm in the Holiday Issue; Real Women, Real Life feature. Go read it and count it as a full blog post for today. Gracias.


  1. I am dying at the "green" commentary. I kept thinking..."maybe the color is off on my monitor?". But no. He's just a real dude and all that.

    Basement looks fantastic. Love it, love it, love it. And love that baby you made, too. Good work :)

    1. it's amazing..we've spent HOURS together painting that basement and he persists in saying "green" no matter how often I remind him otherwise. lolol I've tried everything from, "Umm...it's turquoise" to "OMG Call it green again, see what happens!" and still, green it is.

  2. Awesome looking basement!! And congrats on the article. It was great!

  3. I LOVE that color in the basement! You may have just inspired me :)
