Guys, I did it: I made my office my own space, and I’m so freaking happy about it.

I started this blog in 2010, when we lived in a smaller house. Mel worked from home, so the extra bedroom was his office. I had a small Ikea table in one corner of the kitchen. It started with a table, then I added a bookshelf…all in the middle of my kitchen. It was pretty miserable because it was always so cluttered; so many papers and notes and files. And that didn’t even include props or space to shoot photos.

A few years later we moved into the house we’re in now, with a 4th bedroom I could use as an office/guest room. I still had my tiny Ikea table but it was in a room where I could shut the door (a huge improvement with a little kid). There was a day bed and trundle in the room as well, where guests would sleep…all 3-4 nights a year. Because I had no room to store anything (the bed took up a majority of the wall space) it was always full of junk and boxes and paper and…ugh, you get the idea.

I’d shoot photos in the kitchen, moving my camera around, storing my props and tripod in the dining room. Then, in 2016, I started shooting video and clutter got REAL. Three tripods, 2 lights, a monitor, two cameras, props, boards….and I had to set it up and break it down in the kitchen every time. For awhile I put it in the living room, but then it was just THERE every time I walked in the door.

I’d been considering getting rid of the beds (because really, we have other beds, and we have guests a maximum of 4 nights a year) but just never could pull the trigger – until now. I finally did it right after Christmas. I ripped up the carpet and put in laminate to match the rest of the downstairs, got rid of the beds and bought myself a huge corner desk with tons of space. I got a bookshelf and moved all my gear under the window. Now I film and photograph in the same spot and at the end of the day I can shut the door and “go home” for the night. It’s the best feeling ever.

Now if only my weight goals could take hold, I’d be golden for my 2018 resolutions. I have good intentions and then I make things like 7-layer Pizza Dip and buy a bag of Fritos for the shoot and OMG FRITOS AM I RIGHT?

Pizza is a huge weakness for me. I could eat it every day and never get tired of it. Now I can add Pizza DIP to that addiction. This is almost better than the real thing!

Pizza Dip is a gooey cheesy hot appetizer that tastes like pizza without the crust. The crust comes in the form of the dippers you use, like pretzels or crackers or Fritos.

(Side note: have you ever heard the thing about Fritos and a dogs feet smelling the same? It’s so true. Abby’s feet smell like Fritos, which really makes me want Fritos more because I love her little feet.)


This isn’t just pizza dip, it’s 7 Layer Pizza Dip. That means it has 7 layers of delicious gooey pizza flavor that you’re gonna flip for, I promise. I took one bite of this dip and told Mel to never let me make it again. #truestory
