Weekend Update

NavyGuy and I reveled in our child-less-ness this weekend, and pretty much just did what our hearts desired from Saturday morning til Sunday night.  We Starbucks’ed on Saturday morning, lounged around the house catching up on a few tv shows from the week, then headed to town to visit Target, go out to dinner, and […]

Reader Recipe Giveaway!

I’m in a dinner/cooking/meal rut.  In an effort to save money and be healthier, NavyGuy and I are trying to eat more weeknight dinners at home.  We have a decent system established wherein I do the cooking (usually with his supervision just to be safe), and then he does all the dishes and clean-up (sans […]

Scrapbook Questions

YellowBunnies (an old and dear friend), offered these questions in the comments section a few weeks back.  Hopefully she didn’t think I had forgotten about her!  Here’s the crafty questions she posed: I have a box in a closet in a spare room labeled “scrapbook” and every time I have a ticket stub or maybe […]

Project Life – Week 3

Here are the photos from this past week.  I’ve been sending the photos to Walgreens each week to be printed, which runs about $1.50 to get seven pictures printed.  It would be cheaper if I had them shipped to me, but I’m way too impatient for that, so I opt for the “pick-up-in-store” game and […]

Closet Cleanup

Since NavyGuy returned from deployment, our bedroom closet has steadily gone downhill.  I’m not blaming him entirely; thought he’s responsible for some of it, it’s also a question of space, hangars, and a poor layout of shelves.
