The Places We Live : House Tour #2

home / that darn house

I’ve definitely been coming off a bit too eager in my feverish attempt to pack as quickly as possible, tricking myself into thinking it’ll make our move date come sooner. Greg keeps reminding me, “you know… we still have a month here” ..as we stare at the pile of clothes that have now made their home in a heap on the floor since I may have sold the dresser that previously housed them. There was […]

baby #1 / date night / home / pregnancy / that darn house / that dog Bentley / wedded bliss

Oh my, where do I start? Hallelujah! This was the first weekend that my husband didn’t have to work ONE BIT in oh I don’t know, over a month! I miss that guy so much. We had the most relaxing Saturday morning with, did I mention? no work! We went to the camera shop to see if we could get my beloved camera and lens fixed but they said it would cost as much as […]

Okay, it’s always sunny here, but even in a place of constant sun, I’m looking forward to summer and backyard barbecues and running through our freshly mowed weeds with my ever perky pup. This weekend we conquered our great fear and took Bentley to a dog park. I’ve heard horror stories of such places and have avoided them like an Egyptian plague but when my friend invited us to join her and her dog, well, […]

On our first date I told Greg I wasn’t high maintenance, I just liked nice things. It probably didn’t help that I worked at a high-end residential interior design firm for three years either. Your reality becomes very skewed. All of a sudden any bed under $20,000 seems like a great deal! It’s sad when reality sets in and you realize how much higher that high-end really is ; ) All that to say, we […]

that darn house / that dog Bentley / the daily life / why do i act like a child

A lady once told Greg she could not be a Christian on the pill. Oh, hormones. I seem to have gotten an extra dose of them. After that last post about the excitement of getting internet tomorrow (and I truly was ecstatically excited), I gleefully headed home to my no internet house, and looked around and plunged back into my deep hole of despair. None of the doors stay open, the bathroom feels like a […]

I’ve never been more excited for internet in my life!! Let’s see… there’s been a whole lot of this going on lately: Other than staring straight ahead and/or at our one corner of fall beauty, we have beeeeennnn umm, what have we been doing? I think this is pretty much all we do. I have two rooms left of boxes that I can’t bring myself to face. They are all books and I have no […]

home / that darn house / that dog Bentley

The first night we moved in, we saw something horrifying. Ourselves. In the mirror. Except it wasn’t a mirror, it was our front window. The lovely tenants before us installed a one way mirror film on the front windows – I’m assuming for privacy except I think they put it on the wrong side. This meant everyone could see in but we could not see out. So, as we looked around our empty cheaply put […]

date night / that darn house / that dog Bentley

Hello again! My, my! …life has changed quite a bit since our last post, hasn’t it? Lots of good, lots of erm… changes : ) Greg and I celebrated eight months of married life recently and can I just say, I have the most amazing husband! I can’t imagine going through any of this without him.. I’m sure I’d melt into a little puddle of despair : ) We kicked off our last week in […]
