  • The Adventures of Tom & Shelley: Our to-do list

  • I love lists. Making a list is equally as rewarding as crossing things off said list. Especially when they're fun projects. Don't tell DH, 'cus I think he thinks these projects are less exciting for me because I don't have free reign. Which is ALSO, what I think HE thinks. That I don't have free reign to do whatever on these projects. That I somehow will not get my way and his 'design' influ[...]
  • The Adventures of Tom & Shelley: Meet DH

  • Drum roll please..... After four long years it's time for you to get to know DH. Isn't he dreamy?! #luckygirl Let's start with the basics - as in, his real name is actually handsome Brian. I call him Bri most of the time. Just like he calls me Heath. We're Bri & Heath. Yes, we're that annoying. Here' us at our wedding almost 13 years ago. When he's not busy telling [...]
  • The Adventures of Tom & Shelley

  • This post is the start of something new to heatherinheels.com. It's the start of a series I'd like to call "The Adventures of Tom and Shelley".

Namely: stuff is old, stuff got done the wrong way 50 years ago, or my personal fa[...]
  • Projects blooming in my beautiful brain

  • There are SO MANY projects I'd like to tackle. So many. Some are totally necessary and part of the bigger list, like rebuilding our front porch. And then there are others that I'd simple just like to do if money, time, and skills weren't a factor. Like say, adding to our kitchen cabinets so they go right to the ceiling. And while we're at it...change the hardware and paint them white. :) I sp[...]
  • Project Chandelier

  • Our guest room is lovely. But as I mentioned in my PARA Paints #ParaBlogCrew application video, the one thing our guest room lacked was attractive lighting. My mom gave us this chandelier, which came out of her former dressing room before a renovation, but I never really loved the brushed nickel. So I pulled out a can of gold spray paint and got to work:) I swapped out the old tube thi[...]
  • A little bit about me

  • My name is Heather. I like heels, dressing up, sweatpants, my rubber boots, getting my hair done, doing DIY projects, cooking, eating, taking photos, and painting. I am woman of many talents and interests. This list doesn’t even begin to cover it. This blog may, it may not. I think of my barbecue as an extension of my kitchen. Note the MY. By day I work in Public Relations. I have[...]
