About


Oh hi there! Thanks so much for stopping by! My name is Shannon and I am the author of this little corner of the internet! 


I am 25 years old, and like a fine wine, I think I'm getting better with age. :) I'm a business analyst by day, blogger and DIY extraordinaire by night! I'm super goofy/quirky, and I love making new friends and meeting all different kinds of people, and I hope that transfers through my writing. I have a deep love for all things vintage, going to Disney World, kittens, DIY projects, power tools, home decor, photography, learning how to fix/build/renovate things that I never thought possible, baking cupcakes, and laughing until no sound comes out -- aren't those the best kind of laughs?! :)

Though I may sound super cool, I have to admit that I'm a nerd at heart. :) In May of 2012, I earned my Masters Degree in Management Information Systems -- don't know what that means? Me either! 



I call Florida my home, where I am lucky enough to share a beautiful home with the man of my dreams, Aaron (and our 2 cats Jasmine and Duchess, of course). 


He's way cooler than me but I don't let him know it. :) Aaron is a deputy with the sheriff's office -- see I told you he's cooler than me and my partner in crime when it comes to fixing up our home. He always seems to support the crazy ideas I come up with. He's a keeper. :)

I would love for you to follow along and share in our journey to not only transfrom our fixer-upper house into a home, but to really enjoy learning as much as we can along the way. :)

Some fun facts about me
My favorite color is purple.
I like to listen to Coldplay on repeat for hours.
I won class clown in high school.
I am entirely too indecisive.
I love to watch How I Met Your Mother.
Shia LaBeouf is my celebrity crush.
I have 3 brothers.
I studied French for 3 years in college.

Well, now that I have rambled on about myself, make yourself at home and feel free to stay awhile! :)

  1. Just found you thanks to YHL Forums and thought I'd let you know that I love the design of your blog, your content is perfect -- your design eye is funky, fun but classy and your writing is intelligent but light -- and I can't wait to lurk. ;-) - Megan from NYS

  3. Just found your blog through the YHL forum! I love it so much! I'm excited that I found a blogger who is the same age as me, living in a very similar situation as me, and is trying to figure out how to DIY like me!
    I look forward to reading more!

  4. Oh, man. Shannon, I have been following you for a few months now...since before this year's Haven Conference, maybe? I think I even asked you once the measurements of one of your couches or something (we need a tiny couch for our narrow living room!), but I digress. I got so excited finally looking at your "about" page and realizing that you LOVE Coldplay (obsessed is a word that describes me lightly) and that one of your cat's name is Duchess! We have one of those as well. Anyway, loving your new house progress- it's gorgeous! :)
