For his birthday, I bought my husband a music box, but not just any music box. This one lets you compose and use your own music! Did I mention my husband plays multiple instruments, by ear? I thought this would be right up his alley. Plus, all the parts are replaceable, just in case. The … Continue reading A Music Box for My Husband
It was my husband's birthday on Friday, so I baked him a cake and something went horribly, horribly wrong. Going back over my steps, I THINK I got distracted and didn't put enough water in. And then I didn't know how to set the stove alarm correctly, so I THOUGHT I set it. It never … Continue reading In Which I Bake a Cake Badly and the Actual Star Is Tundra
My in-laws were kind enough to gift me a hammock for my birthday! I immediately set it up, and the only place I could was between the pig pen and my deck, but whatever. The pen doesn't smell, and the neighbors already think I'm weird. I can relax and talk to Ollie! And of course … Continue reading Hammock for My Birthday!
Happy Birthday to Mom! Happy Birthday to my father-in-law! Happy Birthday to me! Today is the day between all of our birthdays, and we celebrated with the in-laws on Saturday and my family on Sunday! No celebrations today, and I spent most of the day working and cleaning, but ya'll. I got a hammock for … Continue reading All the Birthdays~!
Here's the Birthday presents I got that are NOT art supplies, in no particular order. I mean, the biggest one is last because I don't want it to negate the other awesome presents, which I love, but otherwise no order. From dad, window prisms! I have one in the bedroom, but now I can hang … Continue reading Birthday Presents I Adore
It's that time of year again! Tundra turned 10 on Saturday, so we took him on his yearly trip to the Kickapoo Valley Reserve. It's about an hour and 15 minutes away from us, so it's a bit of a drive, but he loves it! He even got to meet a nice lady who pet … Continue reading Hiking in the Kickapoo Valley Reserve for Tundra’s Birthday
Every year I post about my birthday, and it never gets old. My mom and father-in-law share a birthday, and two days later I share a birthday with my father-in-law's dad. We were birthday presents for each of our parents! I celebrated early with my father-in-law because we were only going to be in town … Continue reading Celebrating Our Joint Birthdays
Tundra was born in the fall of 2010, so we got to pick a birthday for him. We chose 10/10/2010 because we thought it was neat, and it's been a tradition to always bring him to the Kickapoo Valley Reserve for a hike for his birthday. It was cold and drizzly Sunday, but off we … Continue reading Happy Birthday Tundra!
My mom and I celebrated our Birthdays this weekend (not on the actual days because life) and the week was a whirlwind of Birthdays! Both my mom and my father-in-law were born the same day. I was born two days after and share my father-in-law's dad's birthday. Basically I was my mom's birthday present, and … Continue reading I Was My Momma’s Birthday Present
One of my ex's had this amazing blanket his grandmother had made for him - it was blanket sized but the top was made of jean patches quilted together. It was warm and comfy and delightfully heavy, very easy to sleep under. I loved this quilt, but when we broke up it was his. I'm … Continue reading Jean Quilt
