What Goes Down Must Come Up

Yes, I know I have Isaac Newton’s law of gravity a bit backwards 🙂 keep in mind though I’m not talking about gravity.

Well I dunno about you but, I’m so ready for spring. Maybe I don’t say it enough but every year I get my early spring itch and I’ll telling ya with this crazy weather I’m ready to say bye bye winter and hello spring! I think there are many of us who feel the same?

I have an appreciation for every season. Each one has it’s own beauty but I have to be honest with you seeing the greenery, plants & flowers blooming and birds chirping plus, not having to leave the house with a million layers on… I’m really so ready. The countdown for spring is on. The first day of spring is on March 20th.

Life is like the changing seasons it never really stays the same. In life we endure highs and lows and we also grow and learn from these experiences. Life is but a grand adventure and we are all trying to find our way.

As of now I’m saying goodbye to apartment life and shifting my attention to other endeavors.

The current theme is kitchen renovation! I can hear all the demo work going on below me as I’m writing to you now. My boyfriend and his family are redoing their kitchen and I’ve been taking little snapshots and pitching in here and there when needed. I can show you the progress they make as each day goes by and everyday is a little different from the last. Watching the transformation and seeing the before and after is all part of the fun.

I spent one of the days with Jenney packing up the kitchen items into boxes to prepare for the reno. The first day of kitchen renovation was clearing out the kitchen! Out goes the cabinets, counter tops and the stove. So what goes down must come back up 🙂 and it will eventually. The kitchen is already starting to open up. I also wanted to make note that a majority of the items and materials being taken out are being reused! Joy to repurposing and recycling! ((happy dance))

Now maybe this thought has run across your mind. What the heck do you without a kitchen. Well, it’s called you make do… And a little innovation never hurts either. It’s called the temporary kitchen & coffee breakfast nook station. Now try and say that ten times fast 🙂

So here’s kind of a funny story. For Christmas my dad got me a Nuwave hot plate. I recall opening up my Christmas gift and thinking hmm..when would I be able to use this… Maybe, on a camping trip that would come in pretty handy. What thought did my dad have in mind?? Little did I understand the majestic beauty of what this Nuwave hot plate entailed. The Nuwave has a lot of great features, it’s so easy to use and let me just say this to you.. boiling water will never be the same. Literally, it’s done in the blink of an eye. The moral of this story is you never know when you’ll need a hot plate. I understand. It was a good idea. Thanks dad xxx

The Nuwave and Keurig can be seen on the temporary kitchen & coffee breakfast nook. For meals we have been keeping it simple. Easy to make meals that don’t require a large clean up. Sandwiches, pastas, boiled eggs and salads have been working well. We also have my boyfriends sister who lives next door so, I’m sure she’ll be expecting some visitors 🙂

Buttons, Buttons & Buttons!

Buttons, buttons and more buttons! Swapping out old buttons is a great way to revamp cloths you already have without digging too deep into your pocketbook! I switched the buttons on a plaid coat to give it a new look 🙂 I really loved this lightweight jacket the red and black plaid is just so classic but the plastic skull buttons it had gave a much harsher look then what I wanted. Being able to see the potential in this great find I knew with a little TLC it would be totally different. Adding buttons is really easy and takes little to no sewing skills! Give it a try!
