Welcome to Life by the Pool....it's just better!!!

Hi, I’m Debbie and I’m a Louisiana born/Texas living wife to a wonderful man who is patient and understanding (99% of the time) of my never-ending list of projects.  I am “mom” to two beautiful women and “maw-maw” to three precious grandchildren. I have an office job by day, but love to spend my spare time decorating, baking, and of course hanging by the pool.

We’ve lived in the same house since we’ve been married (20+ years) and decided a long time ago that we would never upsize to a bigger house, but instead remodel, renovate and redecorate to make this house fit all of our needs both functionally and aesthetically. I’m always looking for ways to change things up and always have a project “queuing up” in my head!  These projects almost always have some element of DIY and usually end up with me painting, sewing, gluing, or even playing in the dirt!

I am a planner by nature and by trade (which can prove to be both a blessing and a curse. I always seem to follow, “if you want it done right, do it yourself” mentality. I suppose that can also stem from being a mom! Hah only kidding….mostly).  I love decorating for parties both small and large so you’ll probably see a lot of pictures from our family get togethers on this blog. Our family really does look for any excuse to decorate. 

My three grandbabies will surely be mentioned a lot on here as well. I enjoy outfitting them in the latest fashions, but most of all, I just love spending time with them. Being a grandmother is one of the greatest joys of my life.

I am also a Disney World addict and a big fan of Mickey Mouse! I am always eager to plan a trip, much to my husband’s dismay… even though I think he secretly enjoys it just as much as I do.

So now that you’ve gotten to know me a little, feel free to stop on by anytime.  If I don’t answer the door bell, come around to the back where you’ll be sure to find me lounging by the pool. We all know life is so much better by the pool!!!
