Week in Review- November 20th, 2015

      Hello friends!  The weather has turned cold and breezy here in Wisconsin- I can’t complain, we’ve had a beautiful Fall! With the chilly weather, I decided to make chili and soup for our first Packer party at the new house!  As it all turned out, it was nearly 60 degrees last Sunday […]

Happy Moments in my week!! Brothers, together again…..even if it’s just for 24 hours! (son #3 visiting brother at college) This is the photo when I asked them to send me a pic of them together! Typical! Tough Guys! Computer died and is replaced with a Mac.  Not sure if it’s a good thing or […]

Fall Decor 2015

Well, hello good lookin’!  Welcome back!  Today I wanted to share our Fall decor with you.  If I’m really honest, it was hubby who got inspired and motivated to sift through the boxes in the basement and pull out some of the Fall decor to display.  I could have used the excuse “we just moved […]

ROAD TRIP!!!!!!!  and that’s what we did over the weekend!  We jumped in the car and “road tripped” it to Iowa!  We visited with my in-laws (and hubby’s Aunt and Uncle)- even got a few projects done around their house, taught my MIL about selfies,   did a little shopping, and thoroughly enjoyed eating this […]

Week in Review- Move with us! 10-22-15

It was a beautiful day when we moved on October 16th, 2015.  Skies were blue and temps were cool, but not too cool.  Because we hadn’t sold our old house yet, we could move things over in stages.  Last Friday was the day when the big moving truck came to haul away our large items: […]

 Our week started out SUPER DEE DUPER as we celebrated Sweet Pea’s 14th birthday!! Her actual birthday was Friday, so we had her “call the shots” all evening.  Starting with dinner, she asked if Dad could please pick up food from her favorite restaurant- Potbellies!  Of course he was happy to stop !  With the […]

Week in Review- October 2nd, 2015

Growing up, my husband had a small book in his collection called “Happiness is….a warm blanket.” The book was based on characters from the Peanuts cartoon. I’m not quite sure why he loved the book, but I loved the book because it celebrated the little things in life!  It DIDN’T say happiness is winning the […]

Week in Review- September 25th, 2015

    Happy first few days of Fall!!  I have been loving the slow transition from Summer to Fall.  In Wisconsin, many times we enjoy the Summer temperatures, have about a week of comfortable Fall weather and then plummet right into Winter.  This year has been great for me!!   Our college son made an […]

Week in Review- September 18, 2015

Hello and welcome back, folks!!  It’s been pretty exciting week on the “New Home” front lately!  I’m loving the kitchen back splash in my kitchen.  It looks very similar (almost exactly) to my current kitchen!  Why change it if you love it?? The landscapers finished up the final grading and pulled out some of the […]
