We just got a new mattress (finally!) and that got me thinking about making a few updates in my bedroom.  When my husband moved out to Kansas, I generously let him take our marriage-saving sleep number bed out there with him, because he's the one with the bad back.  I started using our guest room … [Read more...]

I mentioned this on Facebook the other day, but I started putting my Christmas tree up on November 1st this year.  My neighbors, who have no idea that I'm a blogger, think I'm a lunatic.   They might have a point!

Amy and I took a break from blogging yesterday; neither one of us felt much like writing after the horrific events unfolded in Las Vegas.  It also just seemed more appropriate to leave Sunday's post up for another day (see it here if you missed it).
