Something Old, Something New

July 18, 2012

I got in my walk – and it wasn’t even that hot!! A good 3 miles with Better Homes & Gardens. Gosh I love that magazine so much! I’m getting totally obsessive about house stuff. No, we cannot put in new countertops and cabinets right now!! But my gears are still crankin’. Even with little […]

From Kitchen To Dining Room

July 15, 2012

I was so excited to organize Karen’s kitchen this afternoon that I forgot to take any before and after photos! I will have to do that later this week. What started as probably 100 dishes, pots, pans, bowls and appliances on the countertops ended neat and tidy. I’m so jealous of her new space! She […]

I have lived in Charlottesville nearly 2 years and I think I have only been to the mall ONCE – and that was with Karen to pick up some maternity clothes this past winter. We walked straight into Motherhood Maternity and back out – I really don’t even know what stores are at the mall! […]

Sad smile

We are home, long trip under our belts and several hours at the wheel for me. The I-81 trip is a bit longer and often has a batch of traffic (which we hit ) but the drive is more straightforward and seems to go just as fast. I wrote a few BERF posts and did […]

Earth To Dinner

March 7, 2012

Dinner tonight was centered around the fruits of the earth: mushrooms, eggplant, zucchini, peppers, potatoes. This wasn’t all my doing though – Hillary brought them! We roasted veggies along with a block of tempeh for dinner and I cooked quinoa in the rice cooker (perrrrrfectly cooked on quick cook setting!) The veggies were seasoned with […]
