It's here...Fall! And although Fall "officially" began a little over a week ago, I'm so excited to welcome a new season and the much missed (by me) Pumpkin Spice Latte! So with a new Season comes a new checklist to keep your home running smoothly. We know that maybe one or two on the list don't necessarily apply to us here in Orange County, but I know we have lots of friends (to the North and in the Midwest) that can use those tips along with the others to help their home function smoothly and remain beautiful all year!
Are you ready to Spring Ahead? Don’t forget to set your clocks forward one hour this weekend. You don’t want to start the new week off late!
This time of year there's a Top 10, 20, 50, 100, etc. everywhere. So, not ones to buck tradition, we decided to do our own Top list!
It’s finally here! Sunshine, beautiful weather, chirping birds, blooming flowers, and clutter. They are all a clear indication that it is finally spring!
I know that after last week’s “January is Organization Month” post you immediately dug in and spent the entire weekend getting your house completely organized. You did, right?
It’s finally here! That fantastic time of year when our children return to school! Now, don’t get me wrong, I love my children and I love spending time with them. However, as the years go by, I’ve found that one of the greatest joys in life is the beginning of the school year. As Edgar W. Howe said, “If there were no schools to take the children away from home part of the time, the insane asylums would be filled with mothers.”
For years we have played the “what’s the best way to dispose of jobsite waste?” game. The only real option has always been to bring in an on-site dumpster. It is the perfect solution for large jobs and makes cleanup during and after a project very easy. But for smaller jobs, they just don’t make much sense.

Earlier this week I was laid back and relaxed about the Thanksgiving holiday. Just my husband and I and our two girls. A nice, quiet, family Thanksgiving. I had planned out a simple menu with all the necessities and not a lot of effort required on my part. It would be a wonderful day with no hosting duties, nowhere to go and I was in complete control!
While I am a blogger, I am also an avid blog reader, especially when it pertains to the Home Improvement industry. I generally am a major stickler for ensuring that our blogs are original and that I am not simply repeating what someone else has said but today will be a bit different. During my usual rounds of my regular blogs this week I came across one that had some really fantastic ideas. So, I decided to share it with our readers, of course, with a link back to the original source – Ecohome Magazine (www.ecohomemagazine.com).
