We believe we should all love where we live.

We’re a couple of homebodies, working to uncover the home our home wants to be. And we’re so happy to have you here.

I am feeling good today.  Well, actually I am feeling sore–but I feel like I can actually talk without a lump in my throat coaxing me to start crying.  Progress.  Not to mention all of the wonderful notes, texts, emails, calls and comments I have received rooting me on to recovery.  I am getting there.  My hand started blistering today, and although that made it a lot more sore (and disgusting), I know that means it is on it’s way to healing.  As for our car…we still haven’t heard if it is totaled or not–so it is NOT on its way to recovery, or anywhere, fast. :(

In addition to all of your notes of hope today–something else really helped me forget about all my trouble and my pain (I believe those are lyrics) —meet my Bloggie!

  

It’s our new, little, handy camcorder.  It has a touch screen and a pop-out usb for easy uploading.  Records in HD and takes pictures, too!  Plus, it is called Bloggie…which is right up my alley and actually  exactly what I refer to our blog as in conversation with Chris:  i.e. “I updated the bloggie today!”  (Our blog is even bookmarked as “bloggie”)…me and this camera, we were meant to be together.  And, not to brag or anything, but we made a profit buying this camera.  Check it.  Our last camera, we bought last Christmas as our only Christmas gift–Chris was starting a brand new job, we were moving and SUPER poor, but we were having a baby and we NEEDED a camera.  We ended up getting a nice, modest JVC one that turned out to be not the greatest quality as you can attest to by watching any of our videos.  Most recently: here.  After watching that video, we realized that something had to change.  We put our camera up for sale online and got a lot of calls about it right away.  We sold it in less than a week.  We still had a little over $100 on our RC Willey gift card that we won, so we combined that with some of our earnings from selling our camera and, Bloggie entered the fam–plus pocketed some extra Christmas cash.

I am hoping to be able to deliver better pictures and videos of all the stuff I do around here, fingers crossed.  Although, tomorrow’s project I already captured completely with screen shots (gotta love command+shift+4 on a mac)–get ready for a you-can-definitely-do-it-yourself project.

What do you think?

  1. Love your bloggie. Bloggie and Flip should be friends. They are SO easy to use. The touch screen has got to be sa-weet.

  2. Awesome!!!!! She is SO cute!!!

    I think we’re getting the Flip. Same idea I think with the usb sticking out like that. SO handy and definitely user friendly.

    A DEFINITELY DIY???? YAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!!! I am dying over here not being able to be at my house and to do these cute projects!!! But maybe I should be doing it HERE since there are many more tools here at my parents…or I’ll take a nap…good idea!

Almost daily I get asked what I would call my home style. I don’t like to box myself in, but I definitely lean Modern Traditional with an emphasis on comfort when it comes to our home. This especially came up when I shared our Powder Bath Reveal on the blog. I think it changes slightly […]
