I guess since you came to this page, you’d like to know who this person is behind this particular (or maybe spell check had it right and it actually is peculiar) blog is.
Just a little about me. I’m Heather, lover of the Lord, only slightly insane wife to a wonderful, hardworking man (Rob) and mom to three crazy (most likely inherited), but beautiful girls who are growing up way too fast (Clara, Camille and Caroline — yes, we’re those people who named all of our children with the same first letter. I know — we can’t keep them straight either.)
We have one big, stinky (understatement), dorky boxer (Walter) who is overly protective of his people, but can never quite manage to fit his tongue fully back into his mouth (except this pic.)
And last, but not least, the truly “crazy one” in this house — a little black yorkie-poo muppet of a dog (Ethel/aka Little Black Dog), who spends most of her time also being stinky and finding different reasons to bark and create total mayhem.
We also have a little flock of backyard chickens and are thinking of adding ducks and bees at some point.
I started this blog to share some of our craziness…with whom I’m sharing this, I’m not quite sure.
When we bought this house we knew we had a lot to do and that it needed to be done on a budget, so we do most things the DIY way, when we can. Little did we know what kind of disaster this house was going to turn into. And since we do love Jesus, we try to keep the cursing during these projects to a minimum, but if we’re being totally honest, we should probably keep a “curse jar” in a prominent place on our countertop.
As we’re working toward updating things as we can afford to, I’ve tried to throw in some budget friendly side projects along the way. Or at least when we start them, we like to think they’re budget friendly. I’ll let you know if we’ve missed the boat on the whole budget thing. It happens.
We hope you hang around for a little of our craziness.
I like to tell my friends, we pretty much exist to make you feel better about your own house.
