A little more birthday-ness

I realized I never shared the cards that I made NavyGuy for his birthday, and since once involves a cute photo of Tally (home in less than a month! home in less than a month!), I suspected you all would humor me… First up, a card and matching gift bag.  (NavyGuy was a dutiful husband […]

Happy Day to Me

Another quick trip down memory lane to celebrate a birthday… NavyWife… circa 1984 (Age 2) NavyWife… circa 1990 (Age 8  ) Yup.  I know you’re jealous of my fabulous cut-out shoulder shirt and thick curled bangs.  (Sorry the glare from my super fly blue plastic glasses are hiding my eyes a bit, but whatcha gonna […]

NavyGuy Birthday Update – and a Prize Winner!

26 comments!  Very well done folks 🙂  We did actually succeed in reaching our goal of 28 comments because there were two commentors who can’t actually type yet, but who wanted to offer NavyGuy some birthday love.  (So a big “Happy Birthday” from Kitty and FlowerGirl… who P.S. are also up for sale if any […]

After the cake and presents and celebration…

NavyGuy is another day older and for that I’m thankful.  Every day with him is a blessing, and one that I try to never take for granted.  As the wife of a man who consistently cheats gravity in a 50-year-old tin box surrounded by thousands of pounds of accelerant – and very little padding – […]

Birthday Wishes and a Challenge

First things first – how adorable is this little towhead? Do you recognize a young NavyGuy?  The whole swiping a piece of cake before it’s served should have tipped you off. Old man NavyGuy turns 28 today (I know – he’s ancient, right?!?!?). As part of our celebration, I’m issuing a challenge.  We did this […]

Book Review: When Everything Changed

When Everything Changed; The Amazing Journey of American Women From 1960 to The Present by Gail Collins A few years ago, HistoryGirlie shared with me a fabulous read – America’s Women by Gail Collins.  It’s a historical tome about well, women in America.  It’s totally awesome (no joke – even non history geek types enjoy […]

Musical Wishes

A card designed specifically for SIL after her outstanding graduate recital last week.  The original inspiration was this card, and it’s obviously pretty similar.  But I just loved it!  And I knew I could change up the sentiment to make it a congratulations card for SIL. Here’s a close-up of the flowers attached with pop-up […]

Weekend Update

Saturday was a nice little homeowner day.  I mowed the lawn, and NavyGuy cleaned the gutters. Correction – I attempted to mow the lawn.  Remember how our house is up on a hill? Maybe it doesn’t look very steep in the photo, but trust me – when you’re staring down it with a vicious lawnmower […]
