If you follow our blog, you know that it's no secret that Kes & I are HGTV fanboys (or fanboy and fangirl, lol). So when Jennifer Flores recently approached us to ask if we'd be interested in interviewing Bryan Baeumler on behalf of BlogPodium, our reaction was something comparable to a teenage girl at a One Direction concert. I seriously had to re-write my email response to her three times to tone down the number of "OMG"s and "that's amazing"s!
If you've been following along you know that we've finally got some walls up in this place & things are progressing. But we realized that we didn't take any real time to fill you in on all the important stuff that happened behind the walls. So today we're taking you back to talk about radiant heating.
Growing up, my Dad was never the most handy guy. I know a fair few people who's dads are also not handy guys . Not to say that he isn't capable, just that working with tools was never really a high priority on his list. He's more the phone a friend & "supervise" kinda guy. I remember always having family friends come by to fix various things around the house & bringing with them the most fascinating tools. I quickly became the one who'd hold the flashlight & learned so much along the way. I guess you could say my
Workcation: work·ca·tion (noun) 1. A period of vacation from normal work activities, not used for rest, recreation, or travel, but rather used to work your house: Eg. Team Dreamhouse is on workcation right now. This week Kes and I decided to take the week off to knock a huge DIY off our to-do list. We'll be installing our radiant in-floor heating system. We'll get into the full details of radiant heating in a more in-depth post in the coming weeks, but right now I just wanted to give you a quick glimpse into the fun we've been having so far...
Well it's finally here! It's Spring Fever Reveal day & I'm pretty excited to share what Kes & I've been slaving over working on! When I think of spring projects for the home, the first things that tend to come to mind are storage and organization. So when we were tasked with a 'spring paint projects' challenge, we wanted to find an area of the house where we could solve a problem while adding a bit of style. The entryway in my mom's house was the perfect candidate. Home to a broken, non-functioning storage bench and constantly cluttered with shoes, we decided
If you're lucky in life, you're blessed with the kind of friendship that spans decades. Through breakups, triumphs, & crazy vacations; loves, loses, adventures & many many glasses of wine, I've been blessed to have an amazing friend by my side. Angela of Metta in Motion Yoga is one of my closest friends. Friends from childhood we weren't always as close as we are now, but as we grew into womanhood together, I came to realize she's my kindred spirit of sorts. She's my person. My go to when I want to want to 'shop, share, heal, hurt, joke, or
I love the idea that when something good happens you to, you should pay it forward. I feel like if more people tried to live by this one simple philosophy, our world would be a better place. Sometimes just a simple act of human kindness can go a long way. I came across the Suspended Coffees facebook page recently, and this movement really reminded me that there is still some good in a world that at times seems to be filled with negativity & ignorance. I absolutely ADORE this idea & wish it was more widely adopted here in Canada (I'm
