One Year Blogiversiry

First off, I just wanted to say I’m sorry that I’ve been so MIA these last two months.  There’s been a lot of changes happening in my life!  The biggest being that a month ago I started a new job!  I am now working as a graphic designer at our local paper.  I’m still working on getting the hang of everything still but so far its all going well and I’m enjoying my new journey.  Read More »

Our First Anniversary

Wow, I can’t believe that my hubby and I have already been married for one year today.  It seems like only yesterday that I was getting ready to marry the man of my dreams.  Everything ended up turning out the way I had planned it, for the most part, and at the end of the day I was married to my best friend!  Read More »

Our House Building Vacation

You may have noticed that I’ve been a little MIA from my blog this past two weeks.  Well that would be mostly due to the fact that last Tuesday my hubby and I got back from having been in Colorado visiting my in-laws for a week or so.  While there we were able to see my brother-in-law, sister-in-law, and our cute baby nephew, other parts of hubby’s extended family, celebrate my hubby turning 27th, and help build my in-laws new house.Read More »

Mason Jar Planter

Ever since our local Orscheln’s put out their green house with all their pots and plants, every-time we would go there I would see this bright blue mason jar looking planter and I would tell my hubby “I really want this.”  So a couple weeks ago he surprised me with the planter.  I just love how it gives a pop of color to our otherwise boring front porch.Read More »

The Get to Know Me Tag

While reading some blogs that I follow, I saw a post by HomeHugsHuskies called “The Get to Know Me Tag”.  Basically it’s a bunch of questions that you fill out about yourself so that your followers can get to know a little more about you.  I thought this would be a fun and great way to let all of you, my followers, know a little more about myself.  So here it goes!Read More »
