Hello strangers! Here I am to clear out the cobwebs of this dusty corner of the interwebs to bring you an update. Last fall we moved out of our beach condo and moved down the road into a beach townhouse. (Im still very much living in Brooklyn and I will never leave NYC so no worries there!) It’s not quite a proper “BEACH HOUSE” but getting ever so much closer to living my Nancy Meyers / Diane Keaton Something Has Got to Give dreams – at least on the weekends and in New Jersey. Ok maybe it’s more Snooki than Diane Keaton but let me have my fantansies!
While we always planned on making some (ok, a lot of) changes, we thought we could wait a year or two to tackle those. It didn’t take long to realize those plans were going out the window and certain things had to change immediately. One thing lead to another, yada, yada, yada…and we were in full renovation mode.

Thanks to covid and supply chain and lots of other little bitty things that add up, we have been working on the world’s slowest renovation ever. Thankfully we are ever so slowly getting toward the finish line of our original projects and I’m excited to share those with you.
Now you are all caught up. For those of you who follow me on instagram or tiktok you already know all this so thanks for reading. For those of you are still blog only readers, I hope you still remember me.
We have finished 2 bathroom renovations and are almost done with the kitchen. But those require a lot more backstory. So let’s close out today’s post with a hyperlapse video of the Mr. & I in our pajamas making our patio into a small outdoor living room (while our indoor living room is torn to shreds!).

Not going to lie. Im really pleased with how this turned out even with it being just a random collection of pieces I found at big box stores. It really takes this little patio from dead outdoor space to outdoor living space.
