We took a short vacation in Austin, Texas while back. Last time we were in Austin, we stayed at a cheap ol’motel (we were there for a week, so couldn’t afford anything but). We stayed at a hotel we always wanted to stay at this time: Hotel San Jose.
Hotel San Jose is located in the heart […]
Updating the front door of our 1955 mid-century modern home is on the top of our “must do (?)” list. We have been eyeing either a doorlite kit or door from Crestview Doors for years. We had an opportunity to visit the warehouse in Austin, Texas to see their products in person. We were greeted […]
My mother-in-law suggested we’d get a gift card from JCPenney for Father’s Day, so we dragged ourselves to the mall over the weekend. As we were looking for a customer service, we wandered into the home section of the store – that’s when all these bright colors popped into my eyes!

Santa was listening. A day after Christmas, we finally got an offer on our house (on the market since August). The buyer offered full asking price and asked us to pay $1,520 for a home warranty and repairs (if any). That’s it – too good to be true, right? We accepted the offer right away. […]
My 13-year-old dog Keela was diagnosed with lymphoma on September 22. I was told she had two weeks to live – and that two weeks would not be very good. She would just get weaker and weaker and die. I had to make a decision on the spot whether to go with prednisone alone to […]
