All Things HWMMS (He Who Makes Me Smile)

“We’re all crazy. The key is finding someone who understands your kind of crazy.” -HWMMS

A category for my Husband. He had this nickname on the blog when we first started dating, because I couldn’t name names on the blog until I knew that the person I was dating would approve of course! I thought about changing the acronym to Husband Who Makes Me Smile after Weber Wedding Weekend but the HE part stuck. I find it interesting that people who just start following me realize I mean, Chuck without knowing what the initials stand for. And so it goes.

Sitcom Idea Gone Wrong

HWMMS: Wouldn’t a good sitcom be the story of my mother’s ghost manifesting her spirit through a parrot that only says a few catch phrases? Me: No. HWMMS: It’s gonna have to go the way of HBO though… Me: No. 283 people reac

Old Fort Niagara: Soldiers of the Revolution

Old Fort Niagara: Soldiers of the Revolution

Old Fort Niagara: Soldiers of the Revolution Despite the omnious cloudy skies in Springville, HWMMS and I woke up brightish and earlyish to head Back in Time to Old Fort Niagara for Soldiers of the Revolution. Once we arrived in Youngstown, (NOT CANADA as Verizon always assumes…)…

Does Your Dentist Have a Swirly Chair?

Swirly Chair The post where I’m frustrated that I tried to upload this video to WordPress and nothing and I do mean NOTHING happened for about two hours because the damn internet in the country sucks beyond imagination so I gave up and just threw it…

Summer Bucket List: Classic Car Shows

A repost of my article in this week’s Springville Times. Summer Bucket List: Classic Car Shows By Jennifer Weber As the wifey of a proud owner of a 1972 Dodge Challenger, I’ve become accustomed to the ogling of the pretty, pretty car, who I lovingly refer to…

18th Century Family Time

18th Century Family Time

My happy place. French & Indian War Encampment at Old Fort Niagara. Otherwise known as 18th Century Family Time. This year we did a day trip on Suday in order to attend the graduation party of my dearest Jessie Penguin on Saturday. It was my first…

Hello Birdie!

While I was weeding the herb garden this little guy was apparently taking a break from eating the few remaining cherries on the tree—and just sat there watching me. HWMMS came around the corner and said “Do you see this bird, it’s just staring…Mom? Is that…

Da Bacon Duo

Time for the annual photo of Mrs. Bacon and Free Bacon at the QCRG Awards Banquet! My Husband, bless his heart, LOVES DERBY. Over the last few years he went from person who likes derby and goes to games to NSO (Non Skating Official) to Head…

Springville Center for the Arts Gala

Springville Center for the Arts Gala

It’s (not) a tough job…and we’re happy to do it…fun night volunteering for the Springville Center for the Arts Gala. Gosh, I love our Small Town. (And the Hamburg Brewing Company beer by the same name.) Yum! Save

5 Years!

I’m surprised i didn’t get whiplashed by my bosoms. Yikes! Who thought jumping was a good idea? (You can also get a glimpse of my skinned knee from tripping from skipping on the way to the giant tree for our vows, because yeah. Trainwreck Jenny.) Spent…

Garden Time!

“I’m trying to keep things simple, I don’t want to order more than three different varieties of peppers.” – HWMMS (Mind you, we already have two…so that would be five. Is five simple? Apparently at Weber Wonderland.) When I married this man 5 years ago, he…

Meat on Meat

“Isn’t that sort of lazy? Meat on Meat?” -HWMMS Blasphemy. I pulled out a Chuck Roast from the bottom of the chest freezer and two pounds of bacon. Put the bacon on the bottom of the pan, put the roast on top and had it in…

One Step Closer

One Step Closer

HWMMS will never admit this, which is why I need to record this thought on the blog for my own sanity and future reference. TONIGHT while we were walking the doggies around the backyard behind the garage we were looking at all the work and mess…

Current Status: Gnomeo & Juliet

Gnomeo & Juliet is on the teevee. It was my first movie date with HWMMS, it was for Valentine’s Day and my first 3D movie.  Sweet memories. That year we dressed up like gnomes for Halloween. And then we used the photo on our Christmas card.…

Reminder…

Five years ago I wrote this on Facebook. April 19, 2012 All I want to do is plant massive amounts of gardens and trees and raise chickens and rabbits and live off the land with He Who Makes Me Smile at my side while spending time…

Oaty Bar?

Me: Wait, how do you spell it? Odie bar? HWMMS: Oaty. As in oats. Me: OATS! I always thought it was Odie, as in the dog in Garfield. HWMMS: Yeah, a chocolate bar made of dogs, that would be weird.

Synchronicity

Synchronicity: Sometimes you get a wink, not from the Universe, but from a friend. I’m listening. (Or at least trying…) Perfect example of Synchronicity? Me desperately wanting to find my FitBit to start wearing again, blogging about it, having my cousin invite me to a weekly…

Baby Chuck

This picture of HWMMS makes me want to birth his baby and have a mischievous 10 year old of our very own. Which is funny because at the same time I was trying to take a photo of this photo to get online, there was a…

Easter

HWMMS and I aren’t really Easter people.  I wonder how that came to be. I’m ALL THINGS HOLIDAY AND CELEBRATING AND AND… Our very first year together I took him to the Broadway Market for the first time and made Easter Brunch for him and Mama…

Top Three Alaska Joe Comments From His Recent Visit

1. “You’ve been writing so much, I can’t keep up with you!” (This one isn’t funny or ironic but made me smile. I know I have at least one friend out there in Alaska following my adventures. 2. (SEE #4) 3. “Where’s my pants?” 4. BONUS…

Gut. Punch.

You know that feeling. Gut. Punch. That punch you in the gut feeling of just BAMYESTHATSITGULP. Well, I just experienced it. And I think I know why I’ve been so obsessed with watching the Kennedy story. Just now, I finished watching “After Camelot” “Have a family,…

Happy March! Day 26: Relaxing

Just another relaxing day at work. I’m glad HWMMS comes along for these things with me. HWMMS chair dancing to the lovely pan flute muzak soundtrack at Plantasia. A post shared by Jennifer L. S. Weber (@allthingsjlsw) on Mar 26, 2017 at 1:19pm PDT   Day…

In an alternate world…

I often think Mama Weber would have loved living life in Springville with us at Weber Wonderland. She would be volunteering everywhere—and attending all the awesome senior center events, hanging out with me at the Chamber, attending the Village and Town meetings. Who am I kidding,…

Love is…

…being completely surprised by a thoughtful bouquet of red roses. We don’t really “do” Valentine’s Day. Not since the very, very first one in the beginning of our courtship when HWMMS was trying really hard to impress me…I mean when the love of my life surprised…

Snowy Day After Birthday!

The local weather people reported from SNOWY SPRINGVILLE yesterday…Happy Birthday ME! This was what Weber Wonderland looked like on Monday, feet of snow melted down to a thick sheet of ice everywhere. This is what it looks like, again, today. HWMMS *might* have been stuck in…
