Hells yes I can. I hate change. I mean, I despise, deplore, dislike, *insert every word that is negative here*, change. I order the same thing everywhere I eat. I am incredibly predictable. Yet, when change is needed, I am … Continue reading
Oh my! I did not want to ruin the surprise by mentioning that I was interviewed by the Indy Star about the Despa house!

So, things have been pretty chaotic in my life and I have not updated the blog because….life. So, this morning I logged into WordPress to post an update and, WOW, my views were off the freaking chart. Unfortunately, my blog … Continue reading
Last time we talked about Lockerbie bathrooms, the tile was being laid. The pedestal sinks in the master bathroom were ready to be installed. The pedestal sink in the half bath was about to be installed. The master shower was … Continue reading
So, the hardwood floors I ordered came in and…I hated them. So, we returned them and I went with a completely different look. Hey, sometimes I do (rarely) make mistakes and sometimes, something seems right in the showroom and then … Continue reading
I had a difficult time picking out tile for the Lockerbie house. I wanted to have tile that would look like tile from 1863 yet modern at the same time. Since this is a nicer renovation (aka money) I wanted … Continue reading

I am an introvert. If I am on stage or delivering a speech, I am someone else and I can totally rock that. If I have to be “Nicole” in front of people, there is going to be some serious verbal diarrhea going on. Even everyday one on one talking to people…I know they leave thinking…did she take her meds today?
I am also a fierce friend. I have acquaintances and then I have my “family”. And I will cut you if you mess with my family or friends. I am one of those people who take their inner circle of loyal friends and will keep them for life, regardless of where we live or what is going on in our lives.
That being said, we moved into our house a little over three years ago. Introverts have a hard time moving and making new friends. However, in those three years, I have made some dear friends and some of them will be friends for life.
I had a fabulous birthday week. Thanks to all my friends and family for all the cards, gifts and well wishes.
I know my oldest will be 26 next year, but I am not budging on being 29. So, as long as I have such awesome friends, they keep me young.
Thanks, guys. 😘
