Snail Things.

Snail Things.

It’s been a slow month again at the Yellow Cape B&B. We hosted our first overnight house guests – my parents were FINALLY able to make the trip up from Pennsylvania, and they spent a week in what my dad calls his “Cabin in the […]

Random Ramblings.

Random Ramblings.

It’s been a long and snowy 10ish days at the Yellow Cape B&B. We’ve been focused on some random projects around the house to spruce things up a bit.   Jordan added some trim board around a window that had been missing trim. The insulation […]

I Got it from my Momma.

I Got it from my Momma.

I’m a little bit of a prattler. It started when I was old enough to talk; I’d give a full narration of my day – “First I got up, then I put on my polka dot dress” etc. I’m going to fully blame this trait […]

Island Time.

Island Time.

I wish we could say that the kitchen is 100% finished (is anything every truly ‘finished’?!!?), but we recently purchased a kitchen island, which has definitely helped the kitchen feel more put together, so I wanted to share this new addition. When we bought the […]

This home purchase was not my first (also, this is the NINTH place I’ve called home!). Five years ago I bought what my momma calls ‘a step down unit’ aka a condo. It was the perfect segue into homeownership – I had a mortgage and […]

The One Where We Finally Live in the House.

The One Where We Finally Live in the House.

Please enjoy the only view of my countertops clean and empty that there ever will be. Please also note that I have chosen a very small section of my house to show you because the rest of it looks like a bomb went off. For […]

A gray area.

A gray area.

We ordered our counters and they templated last week, but they gave us a 7-10 day guesstimate for when the counters would be installed. When we received a call to have the counter fabricators come out the very next day, I was so excited that […]

A whole new world.

A whole new world.

SO MUCH PROGRESS, YOU GUYS! So last week, we had our floors installed, and that really changed the whole look of the house. Here’s a peek of them from the front door. I was literally so excited to walk in, and this is the first […]
