Awesome Gift

If you have ever asked Melissa about what to get me as a gift, you would know that I am difficult and easy to shop for all at the same time.  It’s difficult because I always tell her that I don’t really need anything.  On the other hand, it’s easy, because I enjoy a lot […]

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 […]

Newlywed Resolutions–LAST CHANCE!

In case you didn’t know, there are only 8 more Wednesdays before Christmas. That means if you haven’t yet accomplished your New Year’s resolutions, it’s time to do that. Here’s a sneak peak back at our resolutions: 5. Write at least five things that are just for me. I can worry about what to use […]

Last night…

Last night as Hubs and I fell asleep in our usual “sleeping position,” I dozed off and had some sort of bad dream. It had only been a few minutes so it was pretty early in the night to roll over and change positions but I was awake and needed a hug anyway so I […]

Pushing Through

This week has been a hard one for me, house-wise. I was feeling great heading into this week because we had a weekend with great progress last weekend, and I was hoping that would continue this week. Then, on Monday, we were so tired from our crazy weekend of work, we took a break. Tuesday […]

No more tears…

No this isn’t a commercial for some sort of extra gentle baby shampoo, but yes, I am talking about tears, the things that fall from our eyes when we are hurt or upset, not to be confused with tears, or rips in paper or clothing. The English language is confusing. Sheesh. But I did spend […]

Kinds of Kisses

Hey guys, how was everyone’s long weekend? Good? Good. Mine too. Now that we have that nicety out of the way, let’s get down to what I really want to talk about: kissing. (What? It’s a serious marriage issue!) If you’re like us newlyweds, you probably spend a lot of time kissing. (insert moment to […]

What’s that smell?

So last, night, as I was sitting on the floor in the doorway of our bedroom doing this: I happened to keep getting some pretty unpleasant whiffs of something particularly smelly. I say that nicely. What I wanted to say was that, oh my goodness, something somewhere near me smelled absolutely positively disgusting. Flat out: […]

Back at home

Well, guys, did you miss me? If you did, I was missing you, too! And if not, well, I wasn’t thinking of you at all either. So there! Just kidding. I missed you all. Anyway, the past 2 weeks were crazy busy for us newlyweds as we worked 12+ hour days at the fair and […]

From newlyweds to the rest of our lives

First of all, did you all see yesterday’s post? I’m trying to work on some new ideas for the blog and really want some input for you. Please take a minute to leave me a comment and give me some feedback on what sort of posts you like most and what is your favorite things […]

What Moves Me

Well, guys, we’re all moved. Notice I didn’t say “moved in.” …as that would imply that we had everything unpacked, organized and put away. But that is not the case. Not the case at all. In fact, we are simply settling in to our new definition of crazy. Before, we were going crazy because we […]

Birthday Blessings

Well, guys, for those of you that didn’t know already, Saturday was my 23rd birthday. Around here, at least for me, birthdays are a special occasion. I try to make them a special occasion for Wyatt, too, but he just doesn’t get as excited as I do about these things. Luckily, Hubs was (finally) home […]

Tears of Joy

Well guys, the big one year anniversary officially came and went without a lot of hoopla or fanfare. I had expected lots of joyous, silly celebrating, but we had none of that. And you know what? I’m perfectly fine with that. Don’t get me wrong, we’re still going to celebrate again on Saturday in a […]

How we’re doing on “happily-ever-after:” The Anniversary Post

I can’t believe it. Really, I can’t. But it’s true. Hubs and I have been married for a whole year. Crazy, isn’t it? I mean, considering the fact that we dated for 6 1/2 years before we got married, so much more has happened in the past 366 days. (It was a leap year, after […]

How a broken radiator taught me to trust my husband more

Last week, my car overheated on the way to get the water switched over to our name at our new house. I told you guys all about it, so of course, because you are such loyal and awesome readers, that you remember ever tiny little detail about it. In case your mind is a little […]

What I learned from my Jimmy, who got too hot today.

Today I had to drive all the way down to Blue Springs to get the water switched to our name for the new house. Exciting, and also super frustrating since it takes all of five minutes for them to do it, and I had to drive an hour and 20 minutes round trip to do […]

My favorite things about summer

Hey guys. Yesterday was the first day of summer. Did you know that? Did you celebrate that? Well, you should have, if you didn’t. Remember how Hubs and I were going to go eat these awesome gourmet hotdogs to celebrate summer? Oh, you don’t remember that? Maybe it’s because you should go back and read […]

It’s been 6 months…how are YOU doing on your resolutions?

Well guys, today is the first day of summer. (insert mini celebration here) Are you still celebrating summer with me looking at these pictures? I bet you are! Hubs and I are going to celebrate tonight by heading out to a gourmet hot dog restaurant. Beacause like happiness, hot dogs also=summer. It’s a small thing, […]

Inside our walls…

There’s a lot that goes on inside our apartment that a lot of people don’t know about. Some of it’s pretty normal newlywed stuff. We bicker about laundry and dishes. We yell at the TV when our cable is sucking. We kiss a lot. We walk around in our skivvies all the time. (Ok, not […]

Towel trouble

There are five hand towels in our bathroom. Why? Because we have a big towel rack and a little towel holder than would look naked with no towel on them. Last night while we were brushing our teeth, I took that opportunity to explain to Hubs about which towels in there that I use for […]

The 10 Best Things About Being a Newlywed

I’ve had some time to think about marriage recently, and I’ve compiled a list that I thought was important enough to share with all of you. Ready? Let’s go. (Note: This list is not at all intended to be taken totally seriously, unless of course, you are a newlywed, or can remember being one, and […]

I hope you enjoy our little corner of Blog Land and stop to look around a few other pages, like our DIY Foam Cooler Ottoman, Ruler Growth Chart, our Kitchen Renovation, and my Free Printables! Hi all, have you noticed my […]

Time flies…

Lately I’ve been feeling that the past year has totally and completely flown by. Yes, I know that’s something “adults” say. And that the more I say it, the more I sound like my parents, or my grandparents. But when I think back to last year at this time, when I was newly graduated and […]

Chicago on my mind…Kansas City in my heart

This weekend, Hubs and I took a bus trip to Chicago with the Cauldron. (That’s the supporters’ organization for Sporting KC.) It was our first group trip ever, other than mission trips in high school, and our first bus trip. We traveled there with Wyatt’s brother, and some friends, but also a lot of people […]

Self-soothing – “Breathe”

Hubs and I don’t have kids yet, but when we do, we’re planning to teach them to self-soothe. (After they are old enough for that, obviously. We’re not sure what age that is yet, but we’ll figure that out when we get there.) Anyway, self-soothing kids isn’t really what I wanted to talk about. I’m […]

Warrior Weekend

This weekend was a big one. I’d say it was a warrior-worthy mess of a weekend. For starters, Wyatt and I had a huge fight on Friday night. It was the most angry and upset I’ve been since we’ve been married. I don’t need to go into all the details, but we were able to […]


Well, guys, I’m a bit late posting, but it was a busy weekend so I hope you’ll forgive me. My friend, Elizabeth got married on Saturday and celebrating with them took most of our time this weekend, but, I want to finish up the A to Z blogging challenge today so I end on schedule. […]

“W”ishes and worries

We’re young and in love. (It’s all very romantic, sounding, huh?) And while it’s true that this young love is happy and exciting and sweet and full of hope for the future, it’s also scary and frustrating and a lot of hard work. Don’t get me wrong, we have big dreams and hopes for our […]
