About Me

I'm a wife and dog mama living in Michigan. I married the love of my life, Kevin, on June 29, 2013.  You can find out all about the wedding here.

After living in apartments for two years, Kevin and I decided to buy a house about a year before we got married. I always thought that house hunting would be soooo much fun! But let me tell you, it was a stressful process and it definitely doesn't happen over night (our process took 8 months from start to finish). Our first-time home buying/owning process might have been stressful, but totally worth it in the end.  We love being homeowners and I love blogging about DIY house projects!

My husband and I are the proud parents of our Goldendoodle, The Admiral. He's definitely our baby and he knows it. He thinks he's a person, don't tell him otherwise.

Besides my husband and my dog, I also love: watching football and baseball, playing sports, reading, crocheting, crafting, and spending time with friends and family.

  3. Aweee admiral is so sweet. I'm planning a wedding too in May. I think I'm sometimes more excited about house hunting than the wedding which I NEVER thought would be the case before I got engaged. It's just that we live in an apartment now and we are SOOOOO antsy to get a HOUSE. The wedding is a day, thought beautiful, isn't forever like the house is. :)

    Can't wait to be in your shoes.
