The busy season

I always knew the month of May was a busy one for me with the Babydoll’s birthday, ending of the school year, Babydoll’s choir Spring concert, Mother’s Day, etc.  This particular May I also had to add my annual Book Club trip to West Chester, OH for the Lori Foster Reader/Author Appreciation Event (check out…

Chocolate, Peanut Butter, & Caramel

Happy Tuesday everyone, I hope that everyone had a great weekend and President’s Day.  Last Friday was Stan’s birthday and my babydoll decided that she didn’t want to have barbecue (Stan had told us all week that was his planned meal for the big day) so she called a cousin to get out of the meal and…

We finally did it

Happy New Year!! The last time I wrote to everyone, I was discussing the “curses” “joys” of housetraining puppies and the relapses associated with them.  Well…I’m happy to announce that we are no longer having relapses.  In fact the puppy has learned to ring the bell (large jingle bells that we purchased from Garden Ridge…

Puppy relapse

The house training process for our puppy, Sasha Fierce, has been going really good until recently.  Sasha is a Standard Schnauzer and therefore when groomed most hair is cut off with the exception of the  hair on her legs and her “beard”.  When we picked up Sasha, the breeder recommended that we not get her…

House Hunting…Horrors

I was just lamenting with a coworker today about how busy our lives have been.  He just moved into his new place yesterday and I asked why he decided to move during the middle of the week.  His response was that his weekends have been so busy that it was only feasible to move during…

Cork Vacation 2011 – Day 1

As promised, I’m going to share with everyone some photos from our family vacation.  I know our vacation was months ago, but I’ve been busy.  See the previous post. 🙂 This year we decided to travel to Fort Lauderdale, FL for a week and then to Chicago, IL for another 4 days.  We left on Saturday morning…

We’ve been so busy…

I haven’t had time to post anything in a couple of months…2 to be exact.  We’ve been so busy that I haven’t had the time to actually sit down to type my thoughts and include the photos that should accompany it.  I’ve been taking photos with the intention of posting about everything but life has…

Marital Roles

Every year our church has a theme that we focus on.  This theme is something that our pastor prays about and waits on an answer from God before it is chosen.  This years theme deals with relationships: our relationship with God, our children, our spouse, our family members, with friends, with coworkers, I think he…

A Good Home-Cooked Meal

After being on vacation for close to two weeks I have to say that I’m completely burnt out on eating out.  Don’t get me wrong we had some really good food while we were away, but after a time you just get to a point where you just don’t want to eat at another restaurant. …

We’re on Vacation

I haven’t posted anything in just about two weeks and there’s a good reason for it…we’re vacationing.  A week in Fort Lauderdale,you come back for a few days, then leave for Chicago and the “Taste” for another 3-4 days…you know how it is.  I promise I will have pictures (I’ve been trying to use the…
