Request for Quotes

February 19, 2018

ebb + flow :: request for quotes

The baby countdown is really, really starting to kick into high gear over here. The Red Head is currently working in the basement (I’ll join him shortly), we’ve got a big Menards run tomorrow, three carpet quotes this week, a painting party on the horizon and lots of details to button up in the meantime. Now would be a good time to enjoy a glass of wine with the housework, if only…

Breezy Weekend

February 9, 2018

ebb + flow :: breezy weekend

What’s on your agenda this weekend? I’m hoping for a good mix of work and play around these parts. We’ve been making good progress on our basement re-model and I’m anxious to get to the fun stuff like picking out paint and carpet and decorating! Until then, though, more sanding of sheet rock. I hope you have a great few days whatever you’re up to. Catch you Sunday!

Nursery Plans… Changed

February 7, 2018

ebb + flow :: nursery plans changed

I was sorting some files on my desktop the other day and found a nursery moodboard I created when we thought we were having only one babe. I chuckled a bit when I opened it! Having two cribs really changes things so goodbye to you cute couch (it’s going in the sun room/den) and you, credenza (babies will inherit our mid-century modern dresser that doesn’t hold nearly enough adult-sized things and the credenza will be used for our basement media console). It’s a work in progress and we’ve got a lot of get together these next few months but I’m excited nonetheless! Keep you posted as it all comes together.

Chilly Night

December 12, 2017

ebb + flow :: cozy night

Welp, yesterday’s post was definitely foreshadowing. The Red Head and I are doing some electrical work tomorrow that could leave us without power for the night. Give me all the blankets, hot cocoa, warm fireplaces, and space heaters. That also means no Internet for a bit so I’ll catch you later this week when we’ve exited the Stone Age!

Light Me Up

December 11, 2017

ebb + flow :: fireplace

The Erickson abode has been sans fire this season and, quite frankly, I’m shocked we’ve waited this long. Perhaps we just really want to get our money out of the new furnace we put in this Fall? Either way, I have a feeling the streak might be broken this week. Someone find the matches!

Up in Lights

October 6, 2017

ebb + flow :: lights

With only a few warm-ish weekends left in the year, the Red Head and I are on a mission to make serious progress in the yard this weekend. Between laying pavers, hauling sand, feeding the willing helpers (thank you, friends and family!) and digging trenches, I’m dreaming about our patio next spring and the addition of some cafe lights. I think they’ll be the perfect addition to our outdoor oasis!
