Hello blogger world! My name is Lisa Rice. I live in a suburb of Portland, Oregon with my hunky husband Wes and adorable baby Lucy. I recently decided to start blogging about two of my favorite hobbies...home design and planning activities. Because I do most of my home design and activity planning on a budget, my blogs will give you thrifty tips to have fun and live stylishly.
Since I was a kid I have LOVED home design. When other kids were reading comic books I was looking at and drawing up house plans. As a kid I would ask my mom to take me through open houses. When I finally bought my first house I about drove my husband crazy with home projects. For our first Christmas in the house I surprised my husband with a painted red living room when he got home from work. I kept it painted though Valentine's day, then it was time for a change again. I have slowed down a bit with the painting projects...but still love them!
As for planning activities, my interest in that started a bit later. After Wes and I got married, I was always looking for free or inexpensive things for us to do. I ended up getting a job planning activities for young adults with disabilities and currently work as an activity director at a senior center.
Thanks for reading and there will be more posts coming soon!
