Home Sweet Home

I’ve been a little lacking in keeping up with this blog since we found out we were moving back home last year. It’s been a whirlwind—hubby’s new job offer  came while we were in Disney last September, and three and a half weeks later we were packed and moved. Easy-peasy, right?

A Quick Weekend Getaway

Sometimes, you just need to get away, even if it is January. Or, more likely, especially in January. 😉

More beach walking

Perfect day for a beach stroll.

It is no secret that I could spend all day, every day at the beach, so when Hubby suggested a January getaway to the beach, I jumped at it! After all, Carolina beaches in January aren’t too cold, right?

Well, kind of.

On our 3-day trip, we had one day of mid-60s and sunny, one of 50 and rain. And one bright and sunny, with a high of 34. Brrr.

And every minute was worth it. We had an ocean-front room, so even in the cold, we could watch (and listen to) the waves crashing on the shore. We brought a whole stash of board games and a computer for Netflix. All in all it was a beautiful, relaxing weekend.

Perfect!

And the last day may have been cold, but the sunrise made it all worth it. ❤

Finding Inspiration in the Oddest Places

I love to cook, which is good.  If we left the cooking up to my husband (who I lovingly refer to as Pookie), food poising may be a regular part of our lives.   He is known to try to surprise me with a meal every now and then.  His problem–he is so afraid of burning things that he tend to undercook them.  Let me tell you, French toast with cold egg runs out when you cut into it is not the best breakfast (although the thought was beyond sweet!)

In his defense, he has gotten a lot better in recent years since he discovered the joys of a digital thermometer.  Still, 99% of the cooking falls on me. Read More


The Best Summer Job Ever

Those of you that have been following along on Facebook and/or Twitter may know that yesterday was Pookie and my anniversary, and today is his birthday. So, I thought I would share with you all how amazing my husband really is. 🙂

Pookie and I met when we were both working a summer job as lifeguards. He was working the entrance to a lazy river, helping people into tube for the ride. I was helping them back out at the end, a few feet away. Read More
