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
So, this is kind of my husband's story, but he gave me permission to post it on my blog. My husband was driving to work early last week, when he saw a deer at the side of the road stomping on something. He beeped his horn, the deer bolted, and he got out to check … Continue reading We Rescued A Kitten… From A Deer?
Here's our last photo of our three cars together. My husband's is the blue Subaru Legacy Sedan, my current car is the green Subaru Outback Wagon, and in the background is our sad Subaru Forester. The SF generation of Subaru's have problems with blowing head gaskets, which our lovely Forester did. This was especially frustrating, … Continue reading Goodbye Forester
For the first time this year, our neighborhood has been setting off fireworks, and this has been going off for most of two weeks. Tundra hates them. He whines and paces and tips over every water dish in the house. Repeatedly. Then he whines because he's thirsty, and if you fill the dish again he'll … Continue reading The Floof Hates Fireworks
When we were staying at my Uncle's in Minneapolis, they had us stay in the back room of the Mother-in-Law addition, and I thought it was lovely. We had a blow up mattress, and SO MANY windows, and I couldn't resist taking a photo. Nothing else exciting here - hope you have an awesome weekend … Continue reading Where We Stayed This Last Week
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
We went up to Minneapolis this last week to inter my Grandpa and Grandma Hanson. Because Grandpa was military, he was allowed a plot at Fort Snelling. It was immediate family only and really short - only 15 minutes before they had to move to the next funeral. The woman who got us all set … Continue reading Fort Snelling: Grandpa and Grandma Hanson
We just went and picked up my car from the shop AGAIN. Right after we picked up my husband's car! My husband's car's crankshaft belt pulley ate the timing belt cover, but he heard the squealing, stopped immediately, and had it towed before it had a chance to reach the timing belt. There's $700 down … Continue reading In the Shop Again
We went to a relative's high school graduation party, and it seems like there were parties EVERYWHERE. Which makes me a bit nostalgic for the summer after High School Graduation where I was finally DONE with Day Care (I mean High School) and eagerly looking forward to college. I had no real responsibilities, and everything … Continue reading Just a Little Bit of Nostalgia
We have a flowering tree in the front lawn that is GORGEOUS right now! And my lilac has bloomed. I think the tree out front is a crab apple, but I'm not 100% sure: There were lovely drifts of pink petals on the ground, but I didn't think to take a photo of them before … Continue reading Our Trees are Blooming!
