Purple Stained Fingers

October 16, 2007

Today I was in grape heaven! I made grapejuice for the first time ever and my kitchen smells delicious! I used a recipe that my Aunt Susie, who lives in Berlin, Ohio, gave me. I hope it tastes as good as it looks! It’s actually a very simple recipe. I bought 15 lbs. of Concord […]

Some random thoughts by me… FOOD NETWORK I must say, I am addicted. I go through phases and right now, I’m enjoying FN. Favorites shows include Barefoot Contessa (would love to visit Ina at her yummy house in the Hamptons. She makes me feel warm & fuzzy inside.), Everyday Italian (wish I were a cool […]

My house is a construction zone

October 05, 2007

And I’m trying not to be too annoyed! We are getting a new furnace installed this week, which means there are lots of guys stomping around the house in their dirty work boots, being noisy and dragging lots of dirt around. I’m doing my best to ignore it, although I know there’s going to be […]

Flower Girls

October 01, 2007

Is it wrong to have more pictures of the flower girls than of the bride & groom?? Well, I just can’t help myself!Avery and her cousin Anna were the little flower girls and, although it was a very long day for them, they did a great job and were so cute! Here’s Anna…Ok, so getting […]

More wedding pics

October 01, 2007

Here are a few more pics from my brother’s wedding. It was a perfect day for an outdoor wedding! The wedding was very laid-back and casual, just like the bride & groom. Lots of out-of-town family to catch up with, new people to meet, and good food to eat! (I’m all about food right now) […]

Office Talk

October 01, 2007

So what did you think about the season premier? I thought it was pretty good. The Meredith accident story-line was a little odd, but I guess that whole show is pretty odd as a whole and that’s what makes it great! Of course I loved that Jim & Pam are dating and thought it was […]

Nauseous and Tired but GOOD!

September 26, 2007

Well, I suppose now is a good a time as any to let you in on a little secret…. We have a little bambino on the way!!Thus, the major lack of postings and commenting by me. I’m about 10 weeks along and smack in the middle of morning sickness (or, as all you moms know, […]

A Few Things

September 14, 2007

I’m SO relieved to know that most of my friends are Office fans!! It’s just the best show. Here’s a look at what the office was up to this summer… On another note, we’re trying to plan a vacation with another couple for February and I need ideas. We want to go someplace warm like […]

Martha

September 14, 2007

So have you been watching Martha Stewart’s show lately? She’s been showing off her new collection for Macy’s and, although I think her show is just one giant advertisement for her products, I’m really liking this collection! I really like this all-white bedding she’s put together – old fashioned, clean, simple…And I also really like […]

Yard Sale Finds

September 11, 2007

I’ve had some really good luck at yard sales the past few weeks. I bought this red berry wreath that I’ll put on my door at Christmastime (after I spruce it up a bit)… This bench is perfect for our entry! I just have to decorate it a bit better. The lady at the yard […]

I’ll play…

September 07, 2007

I’ve been tagged by Chris at Just Beachy. The game is to come up with a little unknown thing for each letter of your middle name. My middle name is Sue, so this should be short & sweet. S is for SHORTS. Ack! I don’t wear them EVER! Well, unless I’m mowing the yard, but […]

Historic Poole Forge

September 03, 2007

Last week we went to Poole Forge for the evening. It’s an old historic park with a creek & a covered bridge. It’s actually the site of my brother’s wedding later in September. We walked around the grounds and just enjoyed the beautiful, relaxing evening. Avery loved the horses & buggies that were tied up […]

Baby & Friends

September 01, 2007

We had our Colorado friends Luke & Julie visiting with us for the past week and a half, and it’s been fun watching their 21 mo. old little guy interacting with Avery. We heard a lot of “Jarrett – don’t sit on baby Avery” and “Jarrett – don’t squish baby Avery”, etc, etc. He’s completely […]

Travels

August 23, 2007

I thought it might be fun to share some pics of the trip we took to Europe for our 5th Anniversary (3 years ago). It was an amazing trip – we were blown away by the sights and experiences we had! So, so much fun! We scrimped our savings for a few years and even […]

I’ve been tagged to post 8 things you might not know about me. Huh, where to begin?? 1. I’m an “all or nothing” type of girl. If I know I’m not good at something, I will not even bother to touch it. However, if it’s something I like, I go into it full force, headlong, […]

Color

August 12, 2007

I thought a lot about color when we bought our house. I wanted our wall colors to reflect the house and it’s character. Our house is a 1920’s American Colonial, so I chose colors that were sort of historical and looked like they belonged. And I’m really happy with how they turned out. The pictures […]

Organized

August 09, 2007

This week I decided to organize my linen closet. As you can see, it’s an old built-in closet, but it works great for storing things! It was a mess, though. Really. Especially the sheets…fitted sheets are such a pain to fold, aren’t they? I can’t seem to master the Martha Stewart technique. Anyway, it was […]

Scrapbook pages…

August 03, 2007

I thought I’d share some pages from the scrapbook of Avery that I’m working on. Of course, it’s been a while since I’ve worked on it…there are just too many other things to do in the summer time! I really love scrapbooking when I’m in the groove and have lots of ideas – I hate […]
