In May of 2002, the stars aligned and two perfect strangers met on the dance floor of a local bar. We both likely had low expectations of our relationship reaching any sort of substantial or significant level but one of us was lonely and the other desperate - so we kept dating.
A job transfer soon after the wedding took us to Omaha, Nebraska which meant selling our home. And then CHA-CHING $$$$$, we found out we made quite a bit of profit on it. When it was time to buy a house in Omaha, we looked for the cheapest house in the nicest neighborhood we could afford, and boy did we find it. Green carpet, similar to that of the Emerald City, a terrible kitchen, pink marble floors and more stained wood than I could possibly stand.
So this blog isn't just about DIY projects - it's about all the other stuff too. Learning how to be better parents and a supportive spouse. Living a healthier lifestyle full of exercise and food that fuels our bodies. We are aware that there are 4 little eyes watching what we do, so we see it as our job to give them the best possible role models they deserve.
In case you're still reading, here's a list of all the random jobs Brent and I have held over the past 15 years. I think we've hit almost every industry! Neither of us could ever answer the age old question, "What do you want to do when you grow up?" Turns out, we're happy doing a bunch of crazy stuff.
