Christmas Early: Upgrading to an Air Fryer

House and Home Lifestyle

About a decade ago I bought us a toaster oven on Overstock. It was $35 and was awesome for cooking for the two of us without heating up the whole house with the oven. Once Emerson was on the scene, it was popular for toast and cooking up some chicken nuggets. Sadly, that lovely $35 toaster oven kicked the bucket in early November. I was sad, that toaster oven got…

Inside Our Home: New Bedroom Lamps

House and Home

Almost a decade ago I complimented Karl's Grandma on her living room lamps; I never thought she'd remember and gift me with them. Since that compliment, Karl's grandparents moved from their home to an assisted living facility. Last year Grandpa passed away and Grandma moved into a smaller apartment. This year Grandma has had some health issues and moved into a different room that didn't have space for the lamps.…

Inside our Home – Main Floor Half Bath

Going Green House and Home

It sounds strange, but one of my favorite rooms in our home is the half bath on the main floor. Before the remodel, we only had one bathroom; I begged to have a half bath on the main floor so we could keep our personal bathroom private, and have one for guests to use.  I also was adamant that the bathroom be orange.  Not pumpkin, not coral, not rust. Orange. …

Inside Our Home: Our Kitchen

House and Home

Next in the series of posts about our home is my favorite room in the house – the kitchen! To fully understand my love for this room, you have to see the “before” pictures of it: When we did our home remodel at the end of 2008, not only did we add to the back of the house to create a living room and master suite upstairs, but we added…

My Home Away From Home

House and Home

Four years ago, I changed jobs.  It was a scary change, but a really great one. While my last company was a good one filled with great people, it just was not a good fit for me. This current company really feels like a home away from home. As the company has grown, my office has moved around a bit – I am currently in my third location, but have…
