A Pinterest-ing Weekend in Chicago

March 7, 2014

Yep – we did it again. To say this has been a busy couple of weeks would be an understatement. I’ve taken on several new freelance projects, and while I’m really enjoying the work, the days are flying by faster than ever. It hasn’t been all work, though. Last weekend I had the chance to […]

Lambeau Leaps

November 26, 2013

The traditional third wedding anniversary gift is supposed to be leather. Admittedly, Bobby and I had no idea that was the case when we decided a late November trip to Chicago and Green Bay would be our gift to one another this year, but it ended up working out perfectly. Why? Because there is no […]

Sizzling Summer Pinterest Party

July 22, 2013

It has been a busy summer, to say the least. Bobby and I have been away from home every weekend since June 28. Our travels have taken us to Minnesota, Washington D.C., Chicago and Kansas City. More on the latter in my next post – with said travel comes a bit of a delay in […]

City Christmas-ing

December 11, 2012

What a (Windy City) weekend! I’m still catching up on sleep after an energy-packed three days in Chicago. The holiday season is one of my favorite times of year to be in the city, and it was fun to take a trip back to visit friends and see my old view decked out in Christmas […]

Chillin’ Like A Villain

September 18, 2012

Our first week as Arizona residents has proven to be quite an adventure. The desert wildlife has greeted us in some very unexpected ways. Namely: A desert “roof rat” decided that our soy-coated Volkswagen wires (don’t ask me why they coat them in soy) looked delicious enough to chew through overnight. Literally between Tuesday night […]

Change of Address

September 11, 2012

Thank you all for the well wishes on our Arizona arrival! Bobby officially started his new job yesterday, so things are feeling even more official. He looked very nice headed for the office despite my artsy (as in, not really) crooked photo. Our 1,760-mile journey to get to Arizona was an adventure, to say the […]

Making The Most Of Chicago: Part One

August 28, 2012

Thank you all so much for the wonderful well wishes on our big move! You’re amazing! As you might expect when given six days to sell and pack everything you own, it has been a little crazy over here. I’ve taken up a part-time job as a Craigslist Poster (not an official position, but it […]
