Meet Bruce

My family just finished building a house and my soon-to-be 18 year old sis, Hannah, has been doing alot of sorting. Sorting that includes deciding which childhood memories are worth keeping, what should be passed on, and what should join the mega garage sale we are planning for July. This weekend she found a tub […]

Rub-a-dub-dub

Registries are hard. It is difficult to decipher what is actually necessary and what is just marketed to first-time mamas to put us in a panic (and spend hundreds of otherwise, college fund dollars).

Copycat Gretchen

That’s right, Dominic … those gourmet recipes I whip up, I didn’t turn into Martha Stewart overnight … so don’t be fooled. I copied them. I copied the Martha Stewarts out there and […]

Whistle While You Work

We’re still in the process of moving. This weekend we’ll be visiting a potential home and I’m looking forward to checking it out. Cross your fingers this is the one! If so, we could move as early as May 22nd.In the meantime, we’ve had realtors and potentials buyers in and out of our current rental […]
