Scenes from the Weekend: CrossFit and Spring Cleaning

CrossFit Fringe - Capital City Throwdown

Crazy busy weekend over here! We completed some major TLC spring cleaning on the closets, creating three full bags for Goodwill. We also started the process of painting all the things we’ve been meaning to paint for 3 years. We did manage to have some fun though, so here’s a little montage of everything. I […]



The End of an Era

Well that sounds kind of foreboding doesn’t it? It’s actually a good thing! As of yesterday, all of the ’80s kitchen appliances are GONE! Before: Now: As expected, the old Jenn-Air didn’t go down without a fight. The gas line was placed right up next to the wall making getting a pipe wrench on it […]



Finishing the Job

Our pictures from the holiday weekend are going to be all sorts of out-of-order, but I know if I don’t post until I have them all I never will. A big part of the weekend was working on the closet — the scene of our recent washer/dryer replacement. Neil and Adam knocked out a portion […]



Make the Old New Again

It’s been over a week since HOA, and I’m just now realizing how much has gone on that I haven’t talked about — especially around the house. So let’s get caught up. First, we have a new washer and dryer! We bought it during the Labor Day sales at Best Buy and had it delivered […]



Life is Expensive

So, we definitely had an expensive weekend — some of it stuff we were excited to spend money on and some of it not so much. We had decided prior to this weekend that we were going to take advantage of the Labor Day sales and finally start the process of replacing our current washer […]



Wee(!)-kend

My weekend of unemployment was blissful. I joke, I’m employed obviously, but the small lull between jobs that was this weekend was amazing. Friday afternoon, I met up with Erica and we made our way to St. Louis for Keith Urban and the Light the Fuse Tour. Admittedly, I don’t follow country music all that […]

There are just 11 days left till the start of the semester here. I can’t believe summer is almost over, and we’re entering the canning stage of gardening. I feel like I’ve missed summer entirely. The pressure canner is back to work. I love this thing, so much. We just did our first round of […]

All Hands on Deck

Hi guys! It’s been an exciting but crazy week over here. We are replacing our porches and deck — our dilapidated, rotting, 31 year-old porches and deck. To say it was time would be the understatement of the year. They are not only rotting to the point we can stick our fingers through the wood […]
