Fancy House Road » Welcome to my life as a mother of 2 on Fancy House Road

Have you noticed that having a FHR baby babies has affected all of the FHR girls? With the arrival of Baby JoJo and Baby Landrie-Loo it would appear that we’ve all gone on maternity leave.

However, the real truth is that we’ve all been dealing with our own individual-stress-filled-lives that have diverted us from our passion for FHR. And we are not doing our posts like we should. You see, it’s difficult to have stress in your life when you have inherited the “perfect” gene. We are spending all of our time being perfectly stressed out. There’s just no time left over for anything else. It’s what I call the “perfect” excuse. View full post »

    #2 Come kidnap me anytime, I’ll leave the door unlocked.
    #3 Except, don’t take me to Georgia. I’ll pass on the flesh eating bacteria.

Since my life is comprised of writing e-mails, attending meetings, managing employees, and changing diapers, sometimes I like to release some steam by taking a break from the mundane and tinkering with my craft supplies. One of my latest projects included customizing my stationary with Rit Dye. A favorite component of mine is the refashioned  gift tags. I have already given them out with a few gifts.  View full post »

    Anastasia Marie - Love anything with a watercolor look.


They say when you have a baby, something in your life has to give. Unfortunately, that thing in my life has been the blog. I feel like a madwoman just trying to juggle work, household duties, and mommy-hood. On the bright side, at least my house is clean.

I actually started working on this blog post weeks ago. One Sunday I woke up with a craving for coconut and cinnamon rolls. So I went on a search for a recipe that incorporated coconut into cinnamon rolls. Here’s what I came up with:

This last week was a whirlwind of events! And by events, I mean final preparations for the end of my semester. It was completely nuts. I will spare you the details– hearing about college classes is only boring unless we can bounce stories about dealing with group projects off one another. Here’s a recap that may be a little more entertaining to hear about:

1. I spent an entire Sunday trying to convince Eric to stop pummeling my nephews with that football. Can you see it in his hand? Once I saw my nephews laughing at their own slow demise {exaggeration}, I figured they were enjoying it and gave up.

2. I have been watching my succulents grow quite rapidly. I am a novice plant carer. Does anyone know a thing or two about succulents? I think it’s time to move them into a bigger pot, but heck, what do I know? Help???

3. I am known to be caught admiring small details lately, like the delicate lace on these sleeves. I’ve been working on letting the smaller details speak for themselves, and opting for less accessories and trendy clutter.

4. This EXPLORE art is on a building down at the ASU Tempe campus. I am sure some of you have seen it. I passed it every Tuesday and Thursday this last semester. It was always cool to look up and see the reflection flip the word in the correct way.

5. Pointy flats… Do you own some?

6. So I guess I am guilty of torturing my nephews as well; Jamie sent me this photo in a text. I am chasing some good baby crack with my iPhone. Cute nieces and nephews sure have the power to turn an Aunt into a creep!
