Extreme Green Homes

I have been accused of being a hippy by more than one person. In all honesty I don’t really know where they would gather I am a hippy other than I like animals and I am a vegetarian. I guess that’s enough to qualify me. I guess I’ll take the title.  So Joey and I live right outside of New York City in Westchester County. It’s just fifteen miles north of Manhattan, and feels a world away. We both grew up in pretty typical suburban areas in Texas and Florida. We went to both private and public schools, had neighborhood

Married: 2 years and counting…

On this day two years ago, Joey and I were in Las Vegas. We were super excited to be there with our folks + my bff. It was a split second decision we made. Two months before our wedding, we got married in Vegas. At a Howard Johnsons, with Elvis serenading us. And it was awesome.   Weird thing is, after we god married, everything felt the same. It was like we were already married and we just kinda filed the paperwork and went on with our day. Our relationship has always been filled with signs. For example, we met

It’s starting to get a little greener around here lately and it’s very exciting to be drawing closer to constant good weather. This weekend was jam packed with a lot of home projects.

Kids Room, Take Two

Can you tell I am ready to have a baby? Haha. Maybe it’s because everyone around me has kids, or is preggo! Joey and I are pretty darn good at making a plan and sticking to it when it comes to life altering event, ie, baby. Our plan is to start trying in September, and cross fingers it happens by November. Is this too personal? I just want to justify to you, our lovely reader a.) we aren’t crazy for putting together a baby room without even being pregnant b.) we are obsessive planners because we are freelancers and each
