Yesterday on Twitter I mentioned that the majority of my office conversations revolved around various aspects of winning the lottery. Those conversations only got more frequent and intense as the day progressed. Fantasizing about Lottery winnings has reached a fevered pitch now that the Mega Millions jackpot has reached over...

My personal favorite sources for design inspiration happen to be various decorating shows (Hel-lo Sarah Richardson!), Pinterest, and a slew of home design magazines, blogs, and other online publications.

Let's be honest, we've all noticed it this time of year either at a friend's house, or more likely your own. I'm talking about those unsightly cracks in painted doors and trim that seem to pop up all over the place during the winter months. For those of us in the...

Last weekend we celebrated St. Patrick's Day with early morning beers and an evening housewarming party with our friends. Since these friends are self proclaimed fans of my cupcake prowess, and it was St. Patrick's day, I decided to bring a special dessert to the party. During last week's Pinterest Challenge...

Throughout its historic district, Old Town has several pockets of homes and buildings that define the age or style for a given block. Though each area has its fair share of houses from the 18th, 19th, and 20th century, the rule of thumb is simple -- the closer you get...

When we moved to Washington DC in 2000, Wendy and I knew we were moving to an area rich in tradition, history and culture. We grew up in an area where we had an annual fair or festival that we might celebrate with our friends and neighbors, or family traditions...

Frequent readers may know that Alex and I love a good vegetable, as is evident from our roasted veggie challenge. We also make significant efforts to try to eat healthy ourselves, but this effort extends beyond our own food choices. When our dog Oliver was diagnosed with cancer, we learned a...

A few weeks ago we filled you all in on the roller coaster ride we endured that was the kitchen disaster in our home. But before we ever got to the point of termite infested and rotten wall discovery in our kitchen, we felt like it was finally starting to...

Last week's Toolbox Tuesday covered a little hand tool that proved quite useful when doing some attic HVAC work. I was able to knock out the work pretty quickly because I had the right tools for the right job. But one of the most important aspects of the HVAC work...
