Hi I’m Kristin.
 I live in San Diego with three crazy but amazing boys, two wild dogs
and a fabulous handy husband.
We have a huge love for DIY!

We enjoy turning our little slice of suburbia into our dream home while remaining functional and practical. We hope to show you  it is possible to create  stylish and beautiful spaces fit for busy families on a small budget.


 Most importantly, I try my best to live a happy and beautiful life, inspire and be inspired,  a place to share my passions and my dreams.Thanks for stopping by!

The Heathered Nest House Tour

Hi Friends, I am so excited to have The Heathered Nest show off her beautiful home for us today.  My hubby has a job up in San Francisco so the boys and I decided to tag along for Spring break.  It is officially our first full day here and I can’t wait to show the boys all the beautiful sites!

Greetings Suburbians!  I’m so pleased to meet you.  I’ve been a follower of Kristin’s for a long time now, so it is an absolute thrill to be hanging out with you guys here today.  But we can’t be hanging around the left coast if you wanna be in my neck of the woods, so through the magic of this here internet, we’re headed east…to the Maryland countryside.  Home of The Heathered Nest.  So, welcome!  Or as they say out here in the country, “Howdy, won’t ya take your boots off and sit a spell?”
