Building a wall is very manly.


I’m an equal opportunity kind of girl.  Boys can play with dolls and girls can play with trucks…to each his or her own. That said, as I watched my husband build a temporary wall…I was struck at how very manly (and cool) it was. Mark and my brother-in-law are cut from the same cloth.  They both work hard, fast and don’t have to stop to eat or go the bathroom. The two of them built a temporary…

We bought a house. Holy crap.


I am a first time homeowner.  My husband is a second time homeowner.  So, this is a bigger deal for me. 🙂 We got a super cool (and in desperate need of renovation/love) 1920’s rowhouse in Lawrenceville and we wasted no time getting to work. We closed last Friday and 1 hour after the closing, this baby was delivered…. Yes, it’s enormous but thankfully we got the bigger one because it’s filling up fast. Who would have…
