On the Home Stretch

We are officially on the home stretch for our Airstream renovation.  My hubby is going to be doing blog posts on each aspect of what we've done, it's been so much more than we anticipated doing.  This has been a lesson in "people will tell you anything to get you to buy their stuff."

51 bins down to 7

In the Spring, we met a full-time Airstreaming family of 5.  They were staying at the campground near our home and we happened to be passing by and saw them. The Mom commented they kept purging more in each new city they went to.  Then the Dad said "It would have almost been easier to… Continue reading 51 bins down to 7

The Great Mold Purge

Know what's a drag?  Getting rid of nearly all your stuff... The last few weeks have been HARD.

Airstream construction update- Demo Days!

"Sometimes I wish I lived in an Airstream..." is our favorite song by Miranda Lambert.  We love singing it while we're working on this beauty.  If Fixer Upper has taught us nothing else, it's that there are ALWAYS curveballs in any project.  What we thought would be a minor demo has turned into something much… Continue reading Airstream construction update- Demo Days!

Layoff Week 7

It's hard to believe we're coming to week 7 of the layoff.  We both assumed that my husband would find a job quickly.  After talking with others who have been laid off in the last couple years, that's not necessarily the case.

Our tiny dreams are reality!!

Eeep!!!! The last month has been ROUGH.  Hubby's layoff has affected us in a lot of positive ways but also in a lot of negative ways.  Satan has really been using it to make us feel unworthy and useless and it's been tough.  I'll write more on that later.  Today I want to share the… Continue reading Our tiny dreams are reality!!
