Blogging Resources

Roomie A recently asked for some blog wisdom.  She’s joining the cult of bloggers and started This Most Happy Wreck (check it).  I wasn’t sure what advice I could offer, so instead, I rounded up some wisdom from around the interwebs, and figured others might be interested as well.  This is by no means a […]

NavyGuy and I have almost completely opposite taste in art and home decor.  It’s really a miracle we can even live in the same house.  You could point out any painting, coffee table, or chair, and one of us would love […]

Cowboy Birthday Party – Setting the Scene

Hi friends… did you miss me?  Did you notice I was gone? 😉  Well, I’m back from Minnesota, where I was visiting TWP and her little family (goddaughter M, godson E, and hubby B).  Baby E celebrated his first birthday over the weekend, and had a blow-out cowboy birthday bash.  I made these cupcake toppers […]

MilSpouse Friday Fill-In #53

1. The best thing my parents taught me to do when I was a child was _________________. … to always say please and thank you.  They truly are magic words. 2. However, one thing I wish they did differently was __________________. … forced me to continue with my swim lessons instead of letting me quit […]
