House of Lovelock » A Continuous Love Story In Sunny California

If you know Ever, you know just what a beautiful little darling she is. You also know that she is way too smart.

My dad has made up some great nicknames for her.

“Snow Gopher” – Really don’t have to ask how she got this one do you?  I mean, the teeth and hair just scream “snow gopher” right?

“The Mad Scientist” –  Her bed head makes her look so Einstein-ish. And by “mad” he means insane. She is.

“Ever-who” I don’t know what this is. It just sounds funny to say, so he says it.

And my husband has taken in my father’s foot steps with nicknaming,

“Ever So-no-no-cakes”

Which is a mix of Ever Sonora, with the “cakes” bit being borrowed from “Katie-cakes” (My dad’s nickname for my sister-in-law Katie), and the “No no” from… okay, He just threw that in there for craziness.

I still call her “Everly.”

Cruz loves to call her “Ebs” as do the other children.

The day of these photos, she told me she wanted me to take some pictures of her pony tail because she had been wearing it all day. This is a new thing to actually leave her hair be all day long. I love it!

  • She is so clever and seriously the cutest kid ever – say hi to her (and the rest of the kiddies) from the girls! How’s the move going?ReplyCancel

This is not because I’m attempting to be another super awesome “design” blog – I promise!  I think I’m going to just go ahead and limit myself (from this point on) to one House & Home post a week. Maybe two. But either way, it won’t be the only posts you see. Swear.

These are my inspirations for some of the things we are out to get tonight.

Front Door & Hardware:

Wood door with gold handle. Drool.This is such a alluring and romantic entry!  Love it!


Stones (There is a huge muddy area you have to traipse through to reach the hose. Sweet huh?):

flag stone edge

I love the look of this grass!

Ceiling Fan (for the one that decided to blow up on me):

No inspiration whatsoever. Everything I find is either ugly or impractical. Who knew?

While that isn’t a huge list, I have some pretty fun decisions to make as far as style and our space.

I love it!

My hair is covered in paint. My rolling arm is falling off my body – not literally. We were only able to really make a dent in two bedrooms, but the rest will happen next weekend, hopefully! I surprised myself with the paint colors. The kids had some ideas, we worked with them and both Joel and I really really love how things are turning out! (Even thought I usually just want everything to be crisp white or neutrals.)

We are videoing and taking photos so we can share them sometime soon!
