Happy Halloween!

May you enjoy the holiday more than this sad little witch who really hates her costume 😉  (Hence only one decent photograph!)

Walk in the Woods

Tally and I took advantage of a break in the rain and went for a long walk in the woods near our house. Wet leaves, mud, and pine needles are to Tally what chocolate cake is to me.  Once we got onto the smaller trails I let her wander off the leash (more for my […]

Costume Crazy

Our spouses’ club meeting this past Thursday morphed into a last-minute costume party, so I had to get pretty creative to match last year’s level of awesomeness with my Mary Poppins costume.  I feel pretty good about my submission: Rosie the Riveter!  (Sorry for the terrible pic – Tally wasn’t very on the ball with […]

Halloween Treats

I threw together some fast Halloween treats last week for my little friends (godbabies, friends’ kiddos, etc.).  They were copied from (of course) an example I found on Pinterest.  The original is a much better photograph, but mine turned out fairly well: All I did was print the templates (found here), trace them on appropriate […]

The Backyardigans

The project is complete!  Now we just have to wait for spring to actually be able to spend any time in our new beautiful backyard!  Here she is in all her newly landscaped glory… The area on the hill that has lots of dirt and what looks like very small plants won’t stay like that […]

Begging Extraordinare

Discipline is a bit lack when NavyGuy is gone… The best part is her eyes in the last one – looking up at me, trying to communicate just how desperate she is for one tiny bite of turkey sandwich 😉

Dressing up Coffins

I love pulling out my boxes of holiday decorations because I usually find something that I forgot I bought the year prior during the post-holiday clearance sales 🙂  My Halloween box this year was no exception.  I had this cardboard-esque coffin set: Some sticky tape and Halloween scrapbook paper later… … and voila!  They’re currently […]

Never-ending

The outside area of this house is going to be the death of me.  Now that we’ve gotten the patio project finished, the final step is finishing the landscaping in the back half.  NavyGuy met with the landscapers last week and got the ball rolling, only to have an immediate setback… Perhaps you need a […]

Long Distance Love

NavyGuy is gone to the boat again, and I’m back in Washington.  It’s Tally pup and I holding down the fort for the coming weeks. I was reading a collection of quotations on a military spouse website, all dealing with the idea of long distance love.  This one, with my slight edit, comes close to […]
