How we gave thanks…

We spent four nights away from home over Thanksgiving, so we didn’t get to celebrate our first Thanksgiving in our house in our house, if you know what I mean. But that’s okay, we had a great time visiting our families, two nights at his parents, two nights at mine. We ate well and often, […]

First Annual Champagne Friday

Ok, I know Tuesday nights might be a little late for a weekend recap post, but that’s okay, right? It’s still worth sharing, I think. And here’s why. Hubs had a long work week last week. In fact, he had to work late Friday night. (Remember me asking for advice about that?) Friday night, this […]

Thoughts from home

Last week, Hubs and I weren’t home. It was the first time being away from our (“finished”) house, and I have to admit how much I simply missed being here! Hubs was traveling for work and since I work from home and can technically work anywhere with an internet connections, I went with him and […]

And for this, I give thanks…

After a long weekend (4 nights, 5 days) away from home, Hubs and I are back in our little apartment and tucked in away from the cold. I hope all of you had a wonderful Thanksgiving! We certainly did. And because so much has happened I’ve decided to do a quick recap of our Thanksgiving […]

To Turkey or Not to Turkey

Hubs loves Thanksgiving food. He’d eat it for every holiday, special occasion, or random meal he could get it. And I’ve been holding off on making anything like it because he has such high expectations and I don’t want to compete with his memories of the perfect turkey. Let’s face it, there’s nothing worse than […]

In sickness…

(First of all, I need to offer an apology for my absence lately. You’ll understand after reading this post.) On Friday night/Saturday morning at approximately 12:30 am, it started. I was sick. Sick, sick, sick, sick, sick. We both suspect food poisoning. (Don’t worry, our Friday night Thanksgiving meal sharers, we don’t blame anyone!) But […]

In a Thanksgiving State of Mind

Yesterday I told you that I’d added to my Fall and Thanksgiving decorations. Before you roll your eyes (which is what Wyatt did), here’s what happened. I was at the church I am volunteering at and they are redecorating their lobby area. So I took down the Fall decor, and the live pumpkins and little […]

10 Things My Kitchen Will Tell You

Here’s some things you can learn about me from my kitchen. 1. I’m fairly messy, though I like things to be neat. Case in point: I don’t want dishes all over the counter, but dislike unloading the dishwasher so I rise them and stack them nicely in the sink. Thus, I have dishes in my […]

Feeling Crummy

Before you stop reading, this isn’t one of those posts that revolve around me working through feelings of grumpiness and pouting. I just don’t feel well. Drat. And my day started out so well! I got up, made Hubs breakfast, and his lunch, then I got him out the door and I settled into my […]

Confessions of a Bad Housewife…or rather, a happy one

I try to be pretty positive overall, but sometimes, I just need to get my complaints out in the open so I can move on. So, in order to satisfy both my need to whine a little and my desire to be happy and joyful in all circumstances, I’m going to list pairs of both […]

Dinner with Friends, and more…

Last night, Wyatt and I had the blessing of having my best friend and her fiance over for dinner. It was our first time cooking for others in our little apartment (other than breakfast or dessert of something small like that) and I admit I was a little nervous because we don’t really have an […]

Our Engagement Story

Since it’s that time of year, I wanted to share my story of when Wyatt asked me to marry him. We had just celebrated our 6 year anniversary on October 9th. We were still doing the distance thing while we were both finishing school. He was going to graduate in December, me in May. It […]

Halloween and Other Events

This past weekend, Hubs and I went to exactly 2 birthday parties, 2 Halloween parties, 2 surprise parties, and 1 outdoor bonfire. (Granted, some of these events overlapped on these qualifications. All in all, it was 4 events in three days.) Needless to say, we’re a bit partied out. Not that these parties weren’t a […]

Pumpkin Seed Specials

So, remember when I posted all about roasting my own pumpkin and said I couldn’t tell you about what I did with the seeds yet because they were a special surprise for a friend? Well, if not, that’s what happened, and you should check it out here. Anyway, it’s time to spread the news about […]

Plenty of Pumpkin: How to Roast Your Own

I love pumpkin. I love carving pumpkins (see this post) and I love to eat pumpkin. That being said, I’ve never made anything pumpkin myself. I’ve always just enjoyed the lovely delicious treats others have made. And I’ve certainly never considered roasting my own pumpkin to make my own puree…until this year. Then again, there’s […]

Pumpkin adventures

Wyatt and I love to carve pumpkins. More about that later…┬áIt’s our favorite tradition. (It used to be our only tradition…) And on Friday, we bought some pumpkins and did some carving…in our little apartment…in our living room. (We may do some more carving this weekend with some pumpkins my grandma dropped off for us […]

Is it Sunday? Because I’m feeling salty…

I’m not always the easiest person to be around on Sunday afternoons and evenings. I know, I know, it’s a big shocker that I get moody sometimes…(just kidding.) Anyway, not that I want to blame it on anything, but I’m going to blame it on something. On Sunday nights, Wyatt likes to go to bed […]
