Who Stole the… wait, he doesn’t even know there’s cookies!

NavyGuy is brilliant… BUT, not the most observant man on the planet. Exhibit A: The new cookie jar… The story begins with our realtor, who gave us a Pier One gift card when we closed on our house. Which I took to Pier One on Sunday. Where I picked out this white cookie jar… … […]

UPDATED: My IT guy fixed the picture problem Lord have mercy, I almost cannot STAND the cuteness!!!I love how they’re all falling over one another, and the little yellow guy in the front is looking up at the camera all, “please take me away from the madness… these siblings of mine exhaust me, don’t you […]

World Card Making Day

I’m still playing around with the best place to take card photos in the new house, so please excuse the odd angle of this card. The stamp is from Stampin’ Up’s set Batty for You… which is the sentiment on this cute stamp! I opted for very simple – the colored paper on the bottom […]

Cheers and Jeers – Starbucks Edition

Quite the day at Starbucks… Cheers… to learning how to clean the coffee grinder. Why cheers? Because it’s part of my “advanced store training,” which will probably bring me only more responsibilities and headaches (as opposed to more money), but will certainly make my time as a barista more rewarding. Jeers… to getting coffee grounds […]

World Card Making Day

You bet there’s a day for us! World Card Making Day is October 3rd this year. Technically, it’s not quite a federal holiday… or even a Hallmark holiday; rather, it was created three years ago by a paper craft magazine to encourage sales celebrate card-making and bring card-makers together. But every holiday has to start […]

Between the great feedback from the survey, an emergency phone call from Mom to make sure I wasn’t standing on a bridge, and the general encouragement from so many sources, I’m back on track. […]

I Don’t Ask You Guys for Much…

So, I haven’t posted in a few days. The short story is that I was busy. The long story interests no one, but if you want to know, I had a crisis. A blog crisis*. See, I started reading Young House Love, a fantabulous blog, written by a husband and wife who renovated their entire […]

Home Sweet Home: Fall Decor

If Sandra Lee can do “tablescapes,” then I can rock a “bookcase-scape.” Not gonna lie – I’m pretty impressed with myself! I used a couple books from around the house to give it some height (which all my decorating books say is crucial), and took the dust jackets off to make the colors fit in […]

We’re Getting a Puppy!!!

Yeah, I didn’t even try for a covert title on this one. We’re totally becoming puppy parents!!!!! NavyGuy and I both love dogs – our families had them growing up and we miss having a little face running around the house, barking, drooling, stealing socks, and generally making our lives wonderful 🙂 So, we’re getting […]

Weirdness Afoot

Today was just one of those days where, you think you’re done with the weirdness, but no – there’s more out there and it’s coming to a theater near you. Or the Food Avenue at Target. It started out fairly innocuously – a woman wearing one purple Croc, one yellow Croc. Sure, somedays you just […]
