A NC Home

Summer Nautical Fashion


  Today is July 1st, and in exactly 15 more days I will be the Big 5-Ohhhhhhhhh! But, you know what - I am really okay with it.   I am nowhere near as upset over the big 5-0 as I was the big 4-0!

How to Cook a Steak on the Stove

If I am caulking - I am covered in caulk. If I am painting - there is as much paint on me and in my hair as there is on the wall.  My clothes are … [Read more...]

Where have I been hiding?


I know, I know. I disappeared.  Boom!  Gone! I truly did not mean to just leave like I did.

Then...we got started on the flip house, and one day turned into another... ... and … [Read more...]
