Things I Adore...

Up until two weeks ago, we had a programmable VCR.

Yes, seriously.

If you want to get picky about it, we still have a programmable VCR. We just don't use it any more.

Why, you may ask.

Well, it's because of three little letters:




MMMMMM. Look at that beauty.

No longer do we have to plan our evenings around the often inconvenient TV schedule. Gone are the days of having to watch any recorded TV in the basement (b/c that's where the VCR is). We are done with "tapes."

love it.

Especially because now we can record all kinds of things we would normally miss.

Which brings me to part two of things I adore...

Seriously. What ever happened to Pop Up Video??
Thank goodness for VH1 Classic.

New laptop. New blog. New layout.

ahhhhh. :)

I blog mainly because it's a great way to keep track of our happenings, and it's so much fun to look back and say "remember that?" Even if no one else reads this, that's fine. To me, it's all about having a record of things... So, to anyone else, welcome, and enjoy our little corner of the internet. :)

... and I'm back!

Remember all that b*tch*n' about my crap-tastic laptop?
And how slow it was?
And how annoying it was to use?
And how I've been stuck using the hub's computer and begging for time?

Well guess what.

That sh*t is over.



It's not a super-amazing expensive model, but it's new, it's fast, and it's portable, and I don't have to stop my husband from being productive to use it.

What's up now blog?

Things I Adore

You missed these segments, didn't you.

(;) I'm sure no one even noticed they were missing.)

Today, I'm here to tell you about some serious fabulosity.
In fact, two pieces of fabulosity.

Here's the first:

(that would be the hubs)

and here is the second:
(not this exact one, but just go with it)

When you add these two things together, plus a determined wife and a ladder, you get SERIOUS TREE LIMB CARNAGE. Which made me the happiest person ever yesterday.

As a side note, if you are ever thinking about planting trees on your lot, and you already have 10-12 trees planted, even if they are small, and you think to yourself: "Man, I need some more shade! How nice would it be to have a few more trees out here?"


Thanks so someone(s) who thought that a good 5-40 years ago, I am in tree hell. I say "I" because the hubs doesn't mind them so much, but I would be happy if we took a massive chainsaw to all of them and had a 3-4 tree lot. But I digress...

THANK YOU BABE!!!!! You have a much happier wife who is impressed with your feats of masculinity and ability to wield a chainsaw.

Husband rating: A+ (I mean really, is that even a surprise?)
Chainsaw rating: A. It did it's work.
Tree rating: F. I hate those mo'fo's
Yard post-tree-trimming: Fantabulous.

3/6 years

So, I'm sure I've said this before... but the anniversary of when we started dating and our wedding anniversary are 3 days apart. No, we didn't plan that. No, we don't really celebrate our dating anniversary, but it's always fun to note how many years it's been each year when we celebrate.
Anyway, here's some fun from memory lane...

tha' hubs.


us on the party bus post sweltering, dusty, muddy hike through Forest Park. hott I tell you. June is a great month to get married ;)

Jus, I dare say every year just gets better. And that's the sign of a good relationship. We've had a lot more bumps from the road of life recently, but you've been my rock through it all. I love you more and more each year. You, my dear, quite simply rock.
