Hey! I’m Tina. Wife to Matt and mom to Jude and Benji. I love my family. I started this blog as a way to document purchasing our first house in Lexington, Kentucky in October of 2012. We still live in this little house, but now with our two boys!

I love the outdoors {in moderation… and when there aren’t too many bugs}. I like adventure and surprises and glitter and making things. I get excited over little things others may not think are a big deal- like puppy chow, iced coffee, a good pair of sweatpants, and getting to go on walks. I also LOVE the beach, sunshine, and warm weather. Who doesn’t?! And this is my little corner of the world where I love to share about my life, all things baby, fitness, food, and our house adventures as first-time home owners!

Go big or go home- do it big, or don’t do it at all. Sometimes going big is the answer, but at other times it’s best to not even go there, take a break, and go home to relax and regroup. That’s real, that’s life!

    I came across your blog on Pinterest. I’ve skimmed over lots of older entries and still can’t find what I want. Please let me know what color your painted the living room. All I could see in the picture was that it was Behr and it was gray. I couldn’t find the actual color name. Thanks.

      • Hey Sharon- thanks for reading! The gray paint in the living room and the nursery is actually the same exact color. That’s how much I LOVE it. It really is the perfect color- it doesn’t have undertones of red, green, or blue. Just a true gray. It’s Behr paint and color called Perfect Gray. I used matte paint so there isn’t a glossy finish. I just don’t like the glare! I hope you can find it at your paint store. Thanks for reading!
