Movie Night

As if I didn’t have enough things to worry about, now I have to fear abduction and sale into prostitution by Albanian thugs the next time I’m having a jolly holiday with girlfriends in Paris. Hiding under the bed with a cell phone used to be my fail-proof plan to avoid the kidnappers, but clearly, […]

Worst. Honeymoon. Ever.

Just sending out an e-vite to my pity party. This time last Saturday, NavyGuy and I were dancing the night away at our wedding reception, having the time of our lives. Oh what a difference a week makes. Obviously, because the Navy aims to rule his (and my) life, we couldn’t take a honeymoon after […]

The boys also used push pins to secure blankets as makeshift window treatments in the livingroom, […]

3 Days!!!

Off to Madison to pick up NavyGuy!!!!  We’re spending the day running errands and finishing up the last minute wedding details, and I’m psyched to see him – I’ve almost forgotten what my groom looks like!  Hopefully he won’t be too tired from his red-eye flight… And thanks to my friend Miss Kewi (meteorologist to […]

A Small Wedding Break

Before I came back to Wisconsin at the end of April, I made several cards that I knew I would need throughout the month of May. One cousin needed a congrats card for his performance in a play, another cousin needed a First Communion card, and moms would need Mother’s Day cards. Because I made […]
