It’s a Wonderful Weekend!

Howdy! As per usual, another fun-filled weekend occurred and I haven’t been able to sit down and focus to properly document all the good times. So, let’s rewind to last weekend. Last Saturday, Cece had her second dance recital complete with cowgirl hat and sassy square dance moves. Again, I’m super proud of her for…

Greetings from February!

Hi, all! Look how happy we are that we survived January!  (You know, just to be in the middle of a big old blizzard now.) BUT we aren’t letting all this crazy weather get us down. It’s Thursday, but I feel like we are still coming off a great weekend. Joe did not have to…

Sledding and Snowmen

Last week may have been the most relaxing week of winter. With Cece out of school, Christmas being over, and no more planned activities we got to finally just relax at home instead of running around and enjoy the snow that had finally fallen. As you can see, we took the girls sledding a few…

The 12 Dates of Christmas (Part II)

What a holiday season it has been! I can’t believe tomorrow is Christmas (and I REALLY can’t believe my shopping is done and holiday cards are out.) Below is the second half of my alleged“12 Dates of Christmas.” Date #7: Christmas Tree Shopping! Ok, so we actually have a perfectly sized artificial tree at home….

The 12 Dates of Christmas (Part I)

Last year, a few bloggers that I follow were writing their versions of the  “12 Dates of Christmas.” Many were actually going on 12 Christmas-themed dates with their significant other during December and taking magazine-quality pics to include in their posts. I think it would be seriously impressive if Joe and I were able to…

Love Rocks

  Over the weekend, we attended a wedding for a couple of rock stars. My friend and former teammate Rachel married her Jeff over the weekend in a seriously rocking fashion. The ceremony was at the Loring Pasta Bar and the reception was at the Varsity Theater which set the stage for an evening of…

Our Favorite Time of Year!

The end of summer is easier to accept when it also means RENAISSANCE FESTIVAL! The food, the romance, the fairies… there’s definitely a treat for every member of the family in ye old world. We managed to attend recently and it was indeed a day of whimsy and delight. This post it but a teeny…

We be runnin’!

I wish I could boast about being those super-fit people who takes wheatgrass shots, avoids pizza, and runs several miles a day. But I am so not. My ideal Sunday morning consists of coffee, donuts, and serious leisure. So, it was a little out of character for me to be voluntarily running instead!     Along with the Olsons,…

February ’14 via iPhone

        I present to you a very random assortment of photos from my phone from the past couple of weeks. As indicated above, February has been a delightful excuse to make indulgent food due to Valentine’s Day and a few ladies nights. A couple of weekends ago, my fabulous neighbor and I hosted a wine…

Ren Fest ’14

            Behold! We packed our satchels and children and ventured to the Renaissance Festival this past weekend. Cece has since remained enchanted with the experience and keeps thinking of reasons for us to return. (“So, I’m out of pixie dust… we need to go back to Renaissance Festival and get more.”)   We only…
