Game of Thrones came on, and we had a little gathering

No, we did not fall down a rabbit hole or get swept away in a tornado. We are still here, and I plan to use the fun television/movie mechanism of going back and forth in time to do a few recaps of some of our past adventures. First up, one in the very near past. One of our favorite shows and book series is Game of Thrones. I am a major fan, and the Hubs is, one could...

Outside

We’ve actually experienced a pretty darn cold winter here. I really have no idea how I survived in Michigan. Oh wait…I hibernated, ate and put on the lbs. I will say that being inside for long periods of time because it’s cold makes me appreciate warmer, sunny weather that much more. Recently we had one of those weekends that was just perfect. Not...

There were some changes around here in December, though. One big one is that I changed jobs. Now rather than driving more than 25 miles each way and oftentimes more than an hour, my commute is 2.5 miles and...

A month of Thanksgiving

Rather than having multiple posts catching up, I’m grouping the entire month of November into one. Not because we sat around bored at home, but I just think it would be easier to have a brief wrap-up and get to present time. Where I promise to be more diligent in my posts. November started off still warm enough for outdoor fun like bike riding and hanging...

Baby’s First Birthday

I believe lil’ bear will be several years old before his big brother stops calling him “baby.” Sometimes it’s “my baby” which I think is just the cutest thing. Can you believe this baby is one? ONE! I know everyone says it, but really do feel like he was born just a couple days ago. On his birthday I re-read his birth story. You...
