Exhausted… But alive!

Well, we did it! We successfully moved halfway across the country with two small kids! The drive was sure crazy, but my mother-in-law decided last minute to fly down and help us, which was a HUGE blessing. (Thank you Jane!!!) Right now we are staying with her and her husband until we find the perfect…

Boxes

Just a little glimpse into my life… All this packing is really starting to get to me. As I sit here packing my entire life into a sea of cardboard boxes, the reality of our move is finally starting to sink in. In two weeks, everything we know is going to be turned upside down.…

Instagram Hack

So many people have been posting Instagram photos lately, and I just love the way they look. It almost makes me want to buy an iPhone, and people who know me know that is a big deal. (I’m not really into Apple. Shocking, I know…) But no more! I found these awesome Photoshop action filters…

Mini Cake Challenge – July

Those of you who are familiar with the video game Portal will probably recognize this month’s mini cake! I had purchased some rhubarb last week, so of course I had to make a cake. (And not just any cake, THIS cake.) The inside is classic yellow butter cake with strawberries and rhubarb and it is…

This Week I …

Drove across the country. Went to a wedding. Climbed some rocks. Picked blueberries.  Went swimming. Played with lots of cute babies. Ate too much food. Took tons of photos.  And most of all, thoroughly enjoyed being home. Vacations are wonderful.

Orange Juice and Honey Roasted Peanuts

Once upon a time there was a young couple who was very much in love. One day, after getting out of work early because it was the 4th of July, they went to the boy’s house to decide what they wanted to do for the evening. Upon arrival, the young man noticed a package sitting…

Mini Cake Challenge – June

So it was Thursday night, I was trying to decide what to make for dinner, and all of a sudden I realized it was the last day of the month and I hadn’t baked any cakes! Now of course I couldn’t have that, so I postponed dinner for a bit and got to it. I…
