5 Years!

HWMMS, Weber Wedding Weekend

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 our 5th Woodiversary with time in the hotrod, hottub, […]

Wearing the Wedding Shoes

Weber Wedding Weekend

Wearing the Wedding Shoes. I haven’t dragged out from the depths of the closet the next season shoes yet. I’ve been wearing my warm, tan winter booties everywhere and today, today I knew I needed to find something else. I went looking for my black slipons but I pulled out this shoe instead. And then […]

View from the Back Deck

Weber Wedding Weekend

I say back deck as if there is actually a deck instead of a concrete slab with a patio table and a few plastic rainbow Adirondack chairs and a pretty calico kitty.  Ha. Anyhow, this is the view from my back deck this morning. Beautiful Fall day in Western New York with the temperatures in […]

Shopping, Weber Wedding Weekend

Let there be (a new dining room) light! You do see this is HWMMS attempting to remove the ugly ceiling fan by stepping on a step stool on top of Mama Weber’s antique dining room table right? You do know that is going to end badly in some way shape or form, right? Yep. Right […]

Weber Wedding Honeymoon

HWMMS, Travel, Weber Wedding Weekend

One would think that with our wedding next weekend we might have started really planning a trip or 27. But one would be underestimating our power of slackerdom. It appears that we will be doing a bunch of little trips all over the USA this summer instead of one big RV tour. Part of the […]

I quit my job.

All in a Days Work, Weber Wedding Weekend

Yes, tis my last day of work, but that part is a no-brainer. Almost 5 years is a good shelf life for a non-profit employee before moving on to the next adventure. I know, because I’ve done it twice before. The mind blowing part of the equation is…I quit my job. I quit my job […]
