We’ve been preparing for baby #2 and I’ve been adding a few blue things for our soon to come little baby boy. The baby blue dresser will be converted into a changing table by adding a changing pad to the top of it. Exciting times!

Working at home

Do you have an area in your apartment or home where you study or work? I have one I enjoy working at. Occasionally I do venture to my dining table to study but I try to avoid that. In our Baltimore apartment we had a desk that fit perfectly into a corner in our living room. That desk is now in the man cave. Fortunately our new apartment has a little nook which I designated as my own. I decorated it with some vintage magazines which inspire me.

I like my study nook. I'll get a new chair in the future.

Who doesn’t love Angela Davis?

Summer with Twin #2

I attended a program for teachers and university professors at Johns Hopkins University over the summer. My lease was up and although I loved my apartment I did not want to pay an extra month. I stayed with lovely Twin #2 and her family for the summer. It was a great time!! She cooked breakfast and we hung out in the city. Twin #2 cooked the delicious breakfast below.


Twin #2 near Union Station. Her baby bump is adorable!

Twin #2 and I went to Truorleans, a new restaurant on H St. The food was delicious!!!!

Wow those hushpuppies were tasty!!! The catfish and redbeans and rice were great as well!

We moved to Dublin, OH technically…. Columbus is across the street so we claim Columbus. We moved into a two bedroom apartment which is spacious and has nice vaulted ceilings. My hubby has a “man cave” which he actually said I can help decorate. I’m sure I’ll post something when I do this. For now, I wanted to show off my chalkboard wall. I’ve always wanted to paint with chalkboard paint. I think it will be fun to write notes and draw pictures. I started by lining the wall with blue painters tape.



After lining the wall I painted. It was really easy and took no time!!




I love this wall as our entrance!
