So we took a leave of absence…

So we took an unplanned leave of absence – but we have some fun projects coming up that we are excited to share with our awesome readers.

In September we found out we were expecting our fourth baby — and in October all I wanted to do was lay on the couch and feel sorry for myself. Spencer was working crazy hours and I was too tired to do anything productive other than feed my kids!

I was doing a lot of soul searching and decided that something had to give and decided to spend a few months working on being a mom and wife and let the blogging die down. I didn’t realize it would be 5 months later that I would be back.

In November we took an impromptu trip to Disneyland as a family and started celebrating the Holidays a bit early. It sounds crazy but that vacation saved our family in so many ways and has been one of the best things Spencer and I have done.

In December we found out that our new baby is going to be a girl!

We are so excited and cannot wait to welcome her in May!

I finally caught the nesting bug and have been organizing and building a few projects and figured it was time to share them with all of you!!

Thank you for hanging in there and for all the sweet “where are you?” emails and messages we have received! You guys are the best!

Hey there! We are Spencer and Amanda, a DIY husband and Wife team, sharing projects we build and create together for our home. Since buying our home in 2007 we have had the saying that Spencer builds it and makes it work and Amanda makes it look good. We hope you will stick around because we always have projects in the works!

  1. I am glad you are back! And glad you are feeling better. The winter leaves me with a severe lack of motivation. I feel like even though I have been blogging, I am finally starting to get back into the swing of things now that spring is around the corner. Spring is my “nesting” 🙂
