Almost the Fourth

It’s a holiday weekend! Do you have plans? We don’t really have plans but are enjoying a rare Friday with Kaitlan at daycare and the day off from work. So far I’m just relaxing with some blogging time while Neil is playing computer games. So for the past two weeks in a row I have […]

Things We’re Loving – PowerICE Edition

It’s been a while since we did a “Things We’re Loving” post, so I thought today I’d take the helm and show you a few of the things we’ve been enjoying over here. Power Ice: Remember these things as a kid? At the pool, a treat from Mom on a hot day? Super refreshing and […]

Lord of the Rings Watch Party

A few weeks ago Neil and I were laying on the couch on a Sunday night when he brought up watching the Lord of the Rings Trilogy (the MEGA Blu-ray Extended Version) over our holiday break before seeing the second Hobbit film, The Desolation of Smaug. Typically we watch the Trilogy in its entirety once […]

Loving Lately

I see these types of posts quite a bit and have always kind of been on the fence with them. While I love seeing things people find, I love especially when it’s things they really love, and are not being paid to love. So with that, here are a few of the things I’m loving […]

Our First Tablet. Surprised?

Disclosure: I am participating in the Verizon Health and Fitness Voices program and have been provided with the Motorola Razr HD and Samsung Tab 2 and six months of service in exchange for my honest review and opinions about the product. So despite being admitted device enthusiasts and working in tech, neither Neil or I […]

4th Anniversary trip to Estes Park: Packing

I don’t know which is more shocking: a) That I’m blogging (so sorry for the crazy absences — summer has been nuts!) b) That we somehow managed to take a vacation (refer to above). c) That we’ve been married for four years. I think the answer is all of the above. We just got back […]

Random Thursday

I liked writing the last Random Thursday so much that I thought I’d do it again. There always seem to be little things going on around here throughout the week that are fun to share, but aren’t deserving of a whole separate post. These are those things. We bought a bowl for our vegetables. I […]

Things we’re loving…

It’s Labor Day weekend! I hope you all have awesome plans for this last weekend of summer — we’re just hanging out indoors enjoying the much-needed rain. Since we’re just hanging around the house, we thought we’d share a few things we’re currently loving around here… Fire Tees: Neil surprised me with a Fire Tee […]

DIY: Wedding Rehearsal Bouquet…

…or alternatively titled, “putting my BFA to good use.” I resisted calling this a “how-to” because I completely failed to take any process shots and only pulled out my camera at the end as we were packing it for transport. Yesterday, my friend Christina “Chris” came over and we made a rehearsal bouquet for Ashley’s […]

Larousse Gastronomique

While at my parents house for dinner on Sunday, I ran across an older edition (1961) of Larousse Gastronomique in the study. My mom has no idea where she got it or how long she’s even had it, but was kind enough to lend it to me after noticing my wide-eyed stare and fan kid […]
