Our Architectural Project Brief 1

After we went under contract on our house, one of the first things we did was compile our thoughts on the future remodel/addition into a project brief. I’m a visual thinker, so this process was a helpful way to organize and communicate our ideas in a linear way. We tried to include all of the […]

Pack Like a Pro 3

One of my claims to fame is that I’m a notoriously light packer for trips. Case in point, I once traveled to Europe for the summer and took only what I could fit in a backpack. On another trip abroad, I packed everything in a carry-on suitcase for our two week honeymoon to Italy. (The […]

Menu Planning Perfection 2

There are tons of free printable menu planners on the interwebs, but I’ve just never been able to find “the perfect one”. I searched high and low for a planner where I could write my menu plan on one side and make a categorized grocery shopping list on the other. It helps me to see […]

What’s Cookin’ – Menu Plan for Feb. 24 – Mar. 2 4

I realize that it’s already beginning to feel like spring in many parts of the country, but winter is still in full force here and we got about 7 more inches of new snow in the mountains overnight. I’m definitely not complaining – warmer weather will be here before we know it so right now […]

What’s Cookin’ – Menu Plan for Feb. 17-23 3

My Recipes is one of my favorite places to find new dinner ideas. This website compiles tried and true recipes from magazines like Cooking Light, Southern Living, Food & Wine and Real Simple. Rarely have I made anything from here that we don’t like, especially when I stick to the ones with 4 or 5 star […]

What’s Cookin’ – Menu Plan for Feb. 10-16 4

Ah, February. You’re that tricky halfway point between Christmas vacation and Spring Break. We’re supposed to get 7-10 inches of snow in the mountains this weekend and all I can think about is jetting off to some tropical destination to bask in the sunshine with a piña colada in hand. Don’t get me wrong, I […]

What’s Cookin’ – Menu Plan for Feb. 3-9 5

Kale, a nutrient-rich superfood, has been getting a lot of hype lately as one of the healthiest vegetables on the planet. And for good reason! Not only is kale rich in antioxidants and high in vitamins A, C and K, but its also a good source for calcium, fiber, folate, iron, potassium and manganese. Some […]

What’s Cookin’ – Menu Plan for Jan. 20-26 5

I’m on a business trip right now so the hubs is fending for himself in the kitchen this week. He really is a great cook, so I’m not at all worried that he’ll go hungry. Just to be sure, I made a quick run to the grocery store before I left and stocked up on […]

What’s Cookin’ – Menu Plan for Jan. 13-19 6

Sunday is typically the day that I plan our menu for the week and put together a grocery shopping list. To be honest, some weeks I’m better about this than others, but I like to have a basic game plan for getting dinner on the table. Planning in advance just saves so much time and […]

Photo Book = $44.38, Montana Memories = Priceless 0

Whew, I finally finished our photo album from our Montana trip this summer! It turned out to be a big task considering we took several hundred photos. Even after I deleted the duplicates and crappy ones, I still had about 500 photos left to work with. Needless to say, it turned into a much bigger […]
