A Weekend Getaway

I have been terrible about posting here the last few months, but I want to get back into it, for myself if nothing else! I love having this blog to look back on and see what we did and share with family and friends. That said, we've been pretty busy lately and the holidays are always full of fun, so I plan to get back on here ...

Happy Birthday Teddy Rex

Happy 1st birthday to this sweet, crazy boy. He is obsessed with his ball and playing fetch, and while he likes to chew on things, you can't get mad at him because he is so cuddly and joyful. Every morning he is so excited and ready to go I just imagine him saying "It's a great day to be alive!" We love you little ...

But! We are making deluxe nachos and pulled BBQ chicken sliders. Yesterday we took ...

The One With the Weaving

Have you seen all the beautiful wall hangings, weavings, macramé plant holders and the like lately? I've been ogling them on Pinterest and Etsy for a long time now, and so when Hillary gave me a lap loom for Christmas, I was ecstatic! At the risk of sounding like a boring spinster (see what I did there? :), my new ...
