How to Make a Wooden Arrow

Good morning and happy Monday! We just returned from a looooong road trip home from Nebraska.  Mr. Hoff’s extended family lives in Nebraska, so we had lots of fun with family, and  Miss L. had a great time playing with cousins, swimming in hotel pools, and staying up way too late every night.  We’re gonna need […]

The Back Deck {And I need YOUR vote!}

Oh, this deck.  It’s been a bit of a “problem area” for me since we moved in… When we first moved here, we gratefully took the hand-me-down outdoor furniture that my grandmother gave us.  It was great, but it didn’t really reflect my style.  I bought new chairs and tried to make that work with […]

Summer Dining Room

Summer is almost here…whoooooot!!!!! {That’s how I feel about that.} I seriously can’t wait for the school year to wrap up and for summer to begin.  I’ve been daydreaming about lazy days, slathering Miss L. with sunscreen and playing with her at the pool, boat rides, taking some vacations, and just doing whatever I want […]

Master Bathrrom via House by Hoff4

Decorating the Master Bath

Decorating my master bathroom has been a never-ending process.  Mostly because whenever I get something cute in here, I just end up taking it and using it elsewhere in the house… Since Mr. Hoff, Miss L., and I are really the only ones who “hang out” in here, I kind of felt like I was “wasting” […]


Happy Mother’s Day! {A Post for Miss L}

Last night Miss L. and I ran to the grocery store at the last minute before dinner.  I made a quick decision to grab her dress and headband off of the hook by the door as we were leaving.  I figured I might be able to get a few sweet pictures of her among the […]

Spray Painted Trunk via House by Hoff 2

Spray Painted Trunk Makeover (It’s $30 Thursday!)

So yesterday I actually Googled “What to do when you can’t get enough done in a day.”   (And then I Googled “What is the thing that connects your tongue to your mouth?” because Miss L. wanted to know.  It’s called your “frenulum” in case you were wondering.) Also, according to Google, I might have “chronic stress”. […]
