Decisions, decisions…

Decisions, decisions…

We made a decision. We chose House number one. We made an offer Friday before we left town. It was really pretty crazy how fast things moved. We left the appointment with the realtor, went to the two bedroom apartment above Whole Foods, and then to lunch, where we had a burger and a beer, … Continue reading

Our New Adventure

Our New Adventure

As I told you yesterday, we started Wednesday, May 30th (a mere week ago) believing that we would be living in an apartment. In our “we can do anything for a year” mode, we had decided that if need be, we could put the two boys, Jason, me, the cat, and the dog all into … Continue reading

Where in the world…

Omigosh, we’re moving to Portland!

I’ve been out of town these past few days, so decided to try out an app that I’ve been curious about but haven’t had much use for in my town. The app of the week is called HomeSnap and its purpose is to give you quick, basic information about any house you photograph. The app … Continue reading

Yarn Along:  Quick Knit Hat

Yarn Along: Quick Knit Hat

We went on a drive yesterday, so I worked on a new hat. I’m hoping to get it done today so I can wear it tomorrow when it’s supposed to be cold. The yarn I’m using is by Malabrigo and the color is lettuce. It reminds me of a springy moss color. So far I’m … Continue reading
