Tuesday Tidbits

Another Tuesday Tidbits friends and we are only a few days from the official start of fall! I absolutely love the change of seasons in our part of the country (yes, I could do without snow in October or May, but I do love the change). I have pulled out a few fall decor items,

Before I update you on the house for this Tuesday Tidbits, it is impossible to not comment on the date (9/11). Both Trent and I have had the opportunity to visit the 9/11 Memorial multiple times in NYC. If you have never been, I recommend it adding it to your list. It’s an all encompassing

Another Tuesday Tidbits friends and we had a busy, but productive week/weekend. I’ll get to the house stuff soon, but Trent and I took a little time to celebrate our anniversary. We ran into Chicago for a fun day….a little shopping, a lot of eating. There is a funny part to the story. We knew

Tuesday Tidbits and a Giveaway!

As you can tell from the above pic, we are all STILL enjoying the clean windows. Even the morning sunrise from our master bathroom has a pretty view! (Although I’m pretty sure the skylight windows are going to be filthy again within the week.) In completely unrelated news, the late summer morning sun hits our

Tuesday Tidbits with a Recipe

Another Tuesday Tidbits after another busy week! Trent has been out of town for a few days on a fun, annual fishing trip that he does with some guys from our church. Our pastor and friend happens to be an amazing photographer, so we end up with incredible photos from this trip. I love that

A Very Late Tuesday Tidbits

As I mentioned on our Facebook page, Trent and I had a whirlwind trip to Vancouver this weekend and it pushed everything back a day or so. Technically, Trent’s trip was a little longer than mine,

For this Tuesday Tidbits I thought it might be interesting to show you some of our house features up close and personal. The kitchen seems to be the obvious place to start since it’s where most people spend the largest amount of time and money. Our home is no different than any other and we

Truthful Tuesday Tidbits

Another beautiful, HOT summer week…another Tuesday Tidbits! While we did have a holiday thrown right into the middle (Happy Birthday, America!) we did not get any downtime this week. I wish I could tell you it was house projects that kept us busy, but alas…it was work. Good ol’ work. Trent actually had to be
