Amidst the flurry of busyness and excitement that came along with moving into the new house, I realized I had never properly documented a tour of our first house together! I had always planned to do this. I dreamed of the day it would all be done — finished! — ready to present to the […]

These past few weeks have been a whirlwind of excitement and nerves. We bought a house! I am over the moon about it. It all happened so quickly. We’d been casually looking for almost a year now, but nothing too serious.  When Kevin and I first moved here ten years ago we were newlyweds, just […]

Why I Love My Vacuum Cleaner (Giveaway!)

August 24, 2012
Neato Robot Vacuum Cleaner Review

This is our new robot helper around the house, whom we’ve affectionately named Mr. MagNeato. He’s the Neato XV-21 Robot Vacuum cleaner, and he sucks up dirt and dust like a magnet! We added the Boston Terrier sticker ourselves, but personally I think they should come standard. Don’t you? ;) 1. Vacuum Lines. Nothing brightens […]

This weekend I decided it was time to do something about the overflowing mound of shoes at the bottom of my closet! I couldn’t even get to my clothes without stepping on a stray tennis shoe littering the floor, trying to make it’s escape from the closet. I ended up getting a little small cubby […]

Christmas Eve Traditions

We’ll be spending Christmas day with our families this year, so “our” Christmas Eve came a few days early. :) We had our tradition of toasting marshmallows and drinking hot chocolate by the fire while Howie the Boston terrier got himself all toasty as well. That little stinker seriously loves it when we build a […]

1. A few weekends ago, Kevin and I were in Auburn for the football game. I curled my hair. 2. While we were in Auburn, I stopped by World Market. We don’t have one up here. Snarl. Gnash. Weep. On an impulse, bought this Banana Chocolate spread. It’s the best thing I’ve ever eaten in […]

It has come to my attention

August 1, 2011
Kitchen Pantry

…That I might have a few too many boxes of cereal in my pantry. Definitely too many spices. A mild obsession with vanilla. An extreme obsession with measuring spoons. They’re never usually this organized. I didn’t mean to straighten them. It just started happening. I can’t help myself. More chocolate than one person should have […]

I’m dreaming of a white Christmas…

December 27, 2010

We woke up on Saturday to a white Christmas! What a wonderful surprise! This is the first white Christmas either of us have ever seen. Even small amounts of snow are rare ’round these parts in Alabama, so any time there’s snow it’s always a fun treat. But there’s something that makes it especially magical […]
