Minnesota Swarm | Our New Sports Obsession

Jason and I are a little obsessed with Lacrosse.  Not playing it (oh man, that would be comical) but watching it.  Last year we went to a bunch of games Minnesota Swarm, and this year we’re season ticket holders.  That means all the home games, all season, we’ll be there.  We are even taking a group of 13 people to the game this Sunday to celebrate Jason’s Birthday!

Project 365 | A Photo a Day

Have you ever completed, or even just attempted, a 365 photo project?  The idea is that you take one photo a day, all year, for one year.  Some people take a photo of their child every day, or themselves, or they focus on one even more specific theme for the entire year.  I don’t use a theme, but I do use just one method to capture every photo: my iPhone.

One Little Word 2012 | What’s Your Word?

Every year for the past 4 years I’ve chosen a word for the year.  One word to focus on for the entire year that helps you achieve your goals. A word to help you keep your focus on those things that are most important to you.  This word can be in the place of traditional resolutions, or it can be to help enhance your resolutions.  Continue reading

Happy New Year | 2012 Plans Aplenty!

Happy New Year to all of you out there in Blogland!  I hope you had a great holiday and New Year and that you got some rest, some time with family, and maybe even some time to create some fun things.  Jason and I spent two weeks in Vermont with our families for the holidays, and just got back yesterday.  We drove the 1,500 miles home so that we could bring Everett with us.  What an adventure!  More on that later though… Today, I’m looking ahead to the new year and fun plans and projects for 2012.

Thrifting Fun | The Junk Bonanza

Last weekend Jason & I visited the Junk Bonanza here in Minnesota.  The Junk Bonanza is where, for a weekend, 130+ junk & antique dealers from the midwest bring lots of awesome stuff for us to buy.  There was definitely something for everyone here, and an incredibly inspiring space to walk through.

A Fun Workshop | Cake Pops

A little while ago my awesome blogger friend Darcie hosted a Cake Pop Workshop at her house.  She thought it would be fun to invite a dozen friends over to her home to make some cake pops together.  How fun is that?  Don’t you wish you had a friend like Darcie?  I bet you do now.  :) Continue reading

An Amazing Summer Concert | Adele

Last week, my husband surprised me with Adele tickets as an early Birthday present.  She played at the Excel Energy Center in St. Paul after rescheduling earlier in the summer due to laryngitis.  We were lucky to get to go; that we were in town for the new show date and that Jason could get tickets at all.  In a word, the show was: amazing.  Simply incredible.  Continue reading
