More Work Finally

If you're just now coming here for the first time, Start at the beginning. I'd like to start off by saying HAPPY NEW YEAR! Okay, so today I have a special surprise for you, and it shouldn't be a surprise due to the nature of this blog (whatever that nature may be), but anyway, the surprise was kind of ruined by the title, so ... see more >>

Thanksgiving 2008 Special

Today is our last day to celebrate November 2008. I don't know what happened in November as far as DIY and remodeling and fixing stuff goes. We don't have any pictures of us doing any of that, although I'm sure we worked on the house at least a little. However, at this point in our lives, we were both still working full time jobs, ... see more >>

Leaks, Eyeballs, Pies, and Interviews

This is going to be a very random post of photos that I found in my November 2008 file. An introduction is impossible, so let's just get right into it. First we have a yummy apple pie I made:     Now we have my friend Britt who I went to college with. We were also apartment-mates for a couple years before ... see more >>

A Tribute to Kitty Franklin

So today I decided to do a little tribute to our first pet, Kitty Franklin. I guess I'll give you the back story for why she's named Kitty Franklin. Kyle and I were thinking of what we should name her and he mentioned the name Franklin. I told him she's a girl, so she can't be named Franklin. I also told him that Franklin is a turtle ... see more >>

2008 Halloween Special

Well, now that Christmas is over we're going to do our Halloween special to get started on this week's posts. I actually had these pictures scheduled to go up last week, but I really didn't want to taint Christmas week! So, yeah... Halloween in December? What? Oh well, this is how it goes when you're talking about something that happened ... see more >>

Hanging French Doors

Today's our last post before Christmas. We will be back on Tuesday Dec. 27th with another DIY update on our house. Today we're going to talk about hanging French doors. Kyle pretty much did this himself (besides me just helping him hold things up here and there) so I'm giving him full credit for this one! Also, Lisha's in-laws came ... see more >>

Framing French Doors

Before we get started, I want to let you know that I'm going to post some random Christmassy pictures in today's and tomorrow's posts. It is Christmastime after all, and although our current timeline of fixing the house doesn't quite line up with Christmas at this moment, I am still going to present a little holiday spirit! :) But ... see more >>

Two Fiascos

Hey everyone, I hope you had a wonderful weekend! I want to give you a heads up right now that I'm going to be taking a Christmas break from blogging. So, Thursday through Monday are going to be my Christmas vacation. This week we will have blog posts for you on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, and we'll be back again next week on Tuesday ... see more >>

All for Fun and Fun for All

Today's going to be a more fun post. I think the month of September was overwhelming for us. Even though we really didn't do a whole lot, it was our first experience with demolition and construction and whatnot, so I decided that we needed to have some fun times. First, one day when Kyle had work and I had the day off, my friend Rachel ... see more >>
