Seven Things: random facts

Friday, January 18th, 2013

As you may have guessed from the fact that it is now the 18th of the month and I have yet to post a seven things post – I haven’t been able to come up with a good theme for this month’s list. I thought about doing resolutions (so cliche) (also I didn’t really make […]

First Anniversary Celebrations

Monday, October 22nd, 2012

We decided to celebrate our first anniversary by using the weekend to just be together. We enjoyed some good food, watched some movies, and spent Sunday at a corn maze, picking out pumpkins, petting farm animals, and getting cider and donuts at our favorite cider mill. In sum, doing our favorite autumn activities. What can […]

Seven Things: to do to pass the time while husby is on nights

Sunday, July 8th, 2012

Husby just started his third year of med school, which means he’s finally seeing real patients in the real hospital and getting to do real things (like holding legs during labor and delivery. Was that TMI? oops.) And all of this real gets to happen at night for the next week. Which means we won’t […]

Seven Things: that already drive me cray-cray about husby* six months in

Tuesday, May 8th, 2012

*All in good humor of course. Last month, as the 7th approached, after having spent the past half hour rolling my eyes at him and sighing in exasperation, husby suggested that I write my monthly seven things post about things that he does that annoy me.  I already had last month’s topic picked out.  But […]

Seven Things: Hosting Easter brunch for the inlaws

Sunday, April 8th, 2012

This Easter husby and I will be hosting Easter brunch for his family. It’ll be the first hostessing I’ve done for his family. In fact it’ll also be the first time that my MIL has been to see our apartment, so it’s kind of a big event. Luckily I chose my favorite meal to host. […]

A brief garden tour

Friday, March 30th, 2012

Husby and I made a point to get home a little bit early on Tuesday to spend some extra time together since our Monday night had been completely shot.  We’re both giddy about the garden, so we decided to take a stroll, talk about our garden dreams, drop off our compost, and snap some pictures […]

A very springy march

Sunday, March 25th, 2012

Last week we saw multiple days that were more than 40° F above average. Usually this time of year the great lakes region is still brushing snow off their cars and hoping for a couple days in the 50s to ring in the spring. Instead air conditioners were turned on months ahead of schedule. The […]

Seven Things: We’ve recently watched on Netflix

Wednesday, February 8th, 2012

On pretty much any given night, after having cooked, eaten and cleaned up dinner, you will find husby and me curled up on the couch spending our last wakeful hour or two with a show or movie or documentary on Netflix. We have a Kinect, so we can control Netflix vocally, by using arm movements, […]

Look what I can do

Sunday, January 29th, 2012

I made something I pinned on pinterest! (I actually make/cook/try many of the things I pin.) (Also please excuse the blurry phone pics.) I made this headband out of old t-shirt scraps, following the directions I found here. (You might ask why I have old t-shirt scraps laying around, and the answer is because a […]
