The funny thing about Homegoods…

….and agreeing to help a friend pick out curtains, is that it can go one of two ways:  Boring, indecisive, wishy-washy and tears of frustration OR you pick the right friend, incorporate wine and have a few laughs and get something accomplished all at the same time. I get this text one day… “Nice”, IContinue reading “The funny thing about Homegoods…”

How to refinish a closet in 2 years and a big girl room in 1 week.

So it may snow in July because I finished my “closet”. Truth is it could very well snow because we did just have a tornado in South Jersey. But I digress.
