you are the pickle in my coleslaw, and man I love coleslaw.

From what originated with a pass of a note started a high school crush. Later brought us back together as road partners,  then off to college as we were study-buddies, next became long distance relationships {even across the globe}, to now the current status of homeowners/adults/the real life. #itsmeandyoubabe

We made a 'little family' that has happily grown over a period of time.

Me. You. Moose.

After a great decade plus a few more; Tim and I will put it in writing. 

I couldn't be more excited to spend the rest of my life with a man that I adore.

what was established in 2000 just became real.
coming soon

lucky me. lucky13.

my current wagon...

Everyone goes through episodes in their life or phases where they are on a wagon for quite sometime or just ride it for a block or two.  The wagon I am riding consists of...



Did I mention I love bacon? Ha! No seriously. I'm trying to change things up a bit. No grains, legumes, limited dairy.  I've been cooking like it's my job. Plenty of great {bloggers} out there to help me out!  

For the Tim.

est. in the year 2000. I can't seem to locate photos '00, '01, '02.  But they are most likely at mothers or on a hard drive I can't locate. 13 years with a great man. How'd I get so lucky?  Ready to continue this journey and make so many more memories though. I love you mr. jones.
Goals one, two, and three:
Be the best woman he'll ever know.
Master the fine art of communication.
Kiss him more.
For the Moose.


My Pinterest board is so helpful to keep up with the goal in what I want my home to be. Its a great way to log my ideas.  Are you on Pinterest?  Do we follow each other?


Sounds like a great challenge; my opinion!

Random Online Shopping.

If you haven't heard KS has a Saturday Sale on must!  I'm in interweb shopping love. Such fun finds. But isn't everything on Fab...well...FAB?


Currently, this is my bedside. 
I finished The Happiness Project; loaned it to a friend.
 The journals are so fun and a nightly 5 min tradition.  
I am currently in the midst of The Real Jane Austen. 

Granted, my wagon is packed like a can of sardines; I think it has me content for a while. Let's see for how long;)

All Things Moose

date: 10.13.12
location: my house
feelings: boss

A few days ago, my mom and dad sure did surprise me…I hate surprises.
Especially if they involve other four-legged friends.  Yep, a birthday party.  After all, I am 5 now.  Everyone I know was there: Miller, Daisy, Louis, Vera, Franklin, Einstein, Sam, Ozzy, and their humans.
Lots of fun, loads of poop and tons of laughs.
All and all I think I slept for 3 days straight once the crowd left. Thanks y'll for coming. Thanks mom and dad.  You sure know how to give a guy diarrhea. xoxo

you are on my mind...


 The Velveteen Rabbit ” by Margery Williams

“What is REAL?” asked the Rabbit one day, when they were lying side by side near the nursery fender, before Nana came to tidy the room. “Does it mean having things that buzz inside you and a stick-out handle?”

“Real isn’t how you are made,” said the Skin Horse. “It’s a thing that happens to you. When a child loves you for a long, long time, not just to play with, but REALLY loves you, then you become Real.”

“Does it hurt?” asked the Rabbit.

“Sometimes,” said the Skin Horse, for he was always truthful. “When you are Real you don’t mind being hurt.”

“Does it happen all at once, like being wound up,” he asked, “or bit by bit?”

“It doesn’t happen all at once,” said the Skin Horse. “You become. It takes a long time. That’s why it doesn’t happen often to people who break easily, or have sharp edges, or who have to be carefully kept. Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out and you get loose in the joints and very shabby. But these things don’t matter at all, because once you are Real you can’t be ugly, except to people who don’t understand.”

So...yes mister rabbit. I'll keep you safe and love you.  xoxo

what do you fall for?

Love this weather, but it doesn't love me...

Not sure if it's allergies or what, but I'm not letting that stop all of the fun.  It's my favorite time of the year. This is what I FALL for...


 Delish and such a {seasonal} way to celebrate fall.  
Have you tried any of the pumpkin beers?


a fun new bed.

 okay, so maybe this is for me;) But at $352, most likely not getting it, but I do love the stitching.

snug as a bug...a must for the winter



Ah, I can hear the acorns falling now. Literally. Fall is here.
