Red Eye Scenery

Sooo I realize it’s not Tuesday anymore but when I saw what Life With My 3 Boybarians was giving away this week on Sweet Shot Tuesdays, I just HAD to join in for the chance to win Berry Sweet Designs’ Lightroom presets!  I need all the photo editing help I can get, no joke. As…

I’ve Been Tagged

I’ve been tagged by Chantale of The Adventures of Skinny Mini Kiki!  If you haven’t checked out her blog before, you must!  She documents all the happenings of her adorable (seriously, so super cute) daughter Keira (LOVE that name) and sprinkles in some interior design (she’s got a great eye) posts as well. The Tag…

1. Remember the baby shower I blogged about back in April?  Well, baby bear Brandon was born on June 11 and here’s a couple pictures for you to ooh and aah over! I love his facial expression in the first one (teehee!) and you can tell he will be such a HANDSOME boy in the…

The Basement Project: Series 3

So I’ve been a little negligent in writing posts for my Nest Designs category, shame on me.  My current CSN Store Giveaway that I have running basically reminded me that I needed to update you all on my basement!  Well, wouldn’t you know we’ve definitely made some progress on the basement in the past few…

Miscellany Monday Four

How did the weekend fly by sooo fast?  That’s life for ya, huh?  Marvin and I pretty much stayed in this weekend, did a lot of chores, bought and installed a new garbage disposal, cooked a lot of food, sewed quite a few things, and worked on some more basement trim.  I love being domestic….

Flavors to Follow: Fruit

The weather has been super warm lately and what better thing is there to do than have a refreshing bowl of blueberries, munch on an apple, dip strawberries in whipped cream or have some lemonade, yummy!  On our past Costco trip, my husband and I bought a TON of fruit with the vow to eat…

Young Me, Now Me (And My Dad)

Have you heard of the Young Me / Now Me photo contest on zefrank.com?  I first discovered it through Photojojo, one of my favorite websites to go for photography tips, tricks, and camera goodies to buy, and thought it was a fabulous idea!  Young Me / Now Me is a contest where you find a…

In lieu of fast approaching Father’s Day, I have a very special guest post, brought to you by my Papa!  Well he didn’t write this post, but he’s the one who made the following kimchi recipe and willingly posed for pictures!  :)  Can’t believe it’s been over a month since I’ve had a “The Dish”…

One Year Anniversary Celebration: Part 2

A few weeks ago, I posted me and my husband’s one year wedding anniversary tripod photo shoot here, but as I stated in that post, I am a strong believer that anniversaries should be weekend celebrations!  And if you know me at all, I LOVE pictures and everything about them, but mostly the fact that…

It’s back… another mundane Monday paired with my Miscellany Monday!  Hope you all had a lovely weekend!  Mine was spent with old and new friends and just went by wayyy too fast.  And now, here’s a bit of my random silliness for you.  Thanks again for letting me link up to Miscellany Monday, Carissa!

Flavors to Follow: Tick-Tock

There’s a few exciting events that I’m looking forward to this weekend… My company is throwing me (and others who have made it) a 5-year luncheon at a yummy revolving restaurant in KC!  It’s kind of crazy to think that I’ve been a working woman for FIVE WHOLE years, and at the same place too! …
