D is an excellent beard grower. He’s had one for all but about 4 of the days we’ve been together. This is handy for me, as I rather enjoy facial hair.
What can I say? I like my man manly.
A terrible thing happened on Monday. A tragedy (or is it a travesty?). D declared a state of scruffiness… and shaved h...

We shoveled these tacos into our mouths until we were almost sick. And I want you to know that I felt very first world typing that. But it’s true – they are delicious.
The secret is the mix of sweet and hot. The chicken is flavored with just salt and chipotle - hot. The peppers are sweet. The cheese is pepperjack R...
Look at This Stuff, Isn’t it Neat?
- Published on Monday, 01 October 2012
No, but seriously. I don’t have a hoarding problem. A tendency to acquire, maybe. But never hoarding. Besides, D is the one who saw these gems at a recent flea market.
Hahaha… Oh, hipster Ariel.
These are from Silver Dollar City in Branson, Missouri. They are parts of molds that they used on their trains.. or s...
Favorite Things Friday
- Published on Friday, 28 September 2012
First favorite – my hubby.
D: I’m going to have to start trimming my nose hair.
Me: It’s ok. I’m going to have to start waxing my lip.
D: So this is what it’s come to… At least we’re getting old and hairy together.
#2 – These two.
In the back of my mind niggles a slight concern that J...

We did just a little updating in the living room a couple weekends ago. I’ve shown you our fireplace before.
D did all that rock all by himself! Still just blows my mind. Anyway, we had some pillars we knew we’d wanted to add but they were pretty crusty and gross.
Originally, I wanted them painted black to match the...
Inside This Old Carpenter’s Chest…
- Published on Tuesday, 25 September 2012
Was a little tool box.
That I stuffed full of fall miscellany.
Since it’s in the kitchen, I included such kitcheny items as wine corks,
And old cheese graters over tea lights.
And I like it.

On Being Famous
- Published on Monday, 17 September 2012
Just kidding. I’m not actually famous.
But if you were to check out the fall edition of Vintage KC magazine, you might recognize a couple faces.
Or maybe only mine, since D has been sketchy about showing his mug.
Here, how about now?
I’ve talked about this magazine before. I’m friends with the editor, so I have a s...
A Paltry and Belated Thanks
- Published on Wednesday, 12 September 2012
I’ve not shared any details of the end days of our house build, and maybe I never will. But in a nutshell, we were over on both time and budget when the builder walked out, leaving us with a house about 75% completed. We had already extended the lease on our rental by a month, but unfortunately for us it was re-rented and we we...
It’s Nice to Be Nice
- Published on Monday, 10 September 2012
I have people in my life who are better to me than I am to them. Who send sweet text messages just to see how my day is going, or funny pics that made them think of me. Who come over during the first days of the move just to clean and move debris from the yard. Who make me handmade bracelets and barbed wire crosses, just because.
