Yo homeslice, I’m Kenz. Thanks for stopping by. If you are a reader of this blog, let’s throw the term “follower” right out the window and replace it with friend. Ah, much better.
You’re on this page because you want to know more about me. So here’s the dirt:
This is me and Aaron. We jumped the broom on April 8th, 2011.
Me and Aaron have a dusty blue house in the greater Salt Lake area. It’s a 1980′s Rambler. She was dubbed Green Meadow Manor. GMM for short. GMM was never able to ditch her metaphoric acid-washed jeans and crimped hair. Her style got stuck in the 80′s. Most people were too embarrassed to be GMM’s friend, but we knew under those acid-washed jeans there lied something stunning. Join us in the efforts of taking off our house’s pants.
This blog documents our efforts to turn our small house into a functional home where babies can run wild.
My design philosophy is that if it makes you happy and looks the way YOU want it to, then nothing else matters! Who cares if people judge my house? Ain’t nobody got time to care about house-judgers. Extreme humiliation should not keep us from creating beautiful things! Let us be brave if we must. And we must.
GMM is teaming with commotion. Aaron and I are parents to two of the cutest/naughtiest dogs in existence: Indy & Buster. 80% of their awake time is spent wrestling each other and eating our toilet paper when we’re not looking.
We also have 2
adult children friends living in our basement. We always joke about calling TLC to get ourselves on a reality show. Our lives are a mash-up of Friends+How I Met Your Mother+Duck Dynasty (minus the being rich part)+ Jersey Shore (minus the drinking part, since we’re a gaggle of Mormons). They often tell me I’m like Monica. Don’t know if that’s a good thing.
10 Useless facts about me:
-My first major in college was Art History.
-I have my pilot’s license.
-I play first Violin in a symphony. The rehearsals are on Saturday mornings and cut into my DIYing time, but I wouldn’t trade it for anything.
-I am scuba certified.
-I have been sky diving twice.
-I hate onions.
-U2 was my first favorite band, when I was 6. Nothing like falling in love with Bono & his leather pants when you’re in first grade.
-I love musicals with a wild passion.
-My favorite car I’ve ever had was my 1995 Grand Voyager mini van when I was 16. Thing could off-road like you wouldn’t believe. (I also had blue hair. It was a horrid phase.)
-I have PCOS, and I deal with it by way of a gluten free/sugar free lifestyle. And if you need a soul-cyster, you’ve got one.
Now that you know me, I want to get to know you! That’s what makes blogging fun for me.
