Productivity at it’s finest.

Bennett and I had a super productive Sunday!  (Finally, haha.)  We took the dogs for a long walk at Oglebay Resort, went and got library cards and checked out some books, and then did about four weeks worth of dirty laundry.  All in all, I’d say that it...

School Talk

I guess that it’s about time we put up a new picture of Bennett and me. 🙂 As you can see, not much has changed with us…Bennett got some spiffy new specs and I am a little more of a redhead.  Otherwise, same old McKinley newlyweds. School starts on Monday for us,...

Progress!

So….even if nobody believed in me (and I didn’t fully believe in myself), I have actually made some progress on the re-upholstering project that I’ve taken upon myself.  The couch may look pretty silly right now with the multi-fabric look, but I think it’s...

Wow….

I really couldn’t make it 30 days.  No way, no how.  Haha, I really tried though. Bennett and I had a hard time trying to figure out the best way to photographically capture each day of our lives.  And sometimes, we just have nothing to talk...

My new project…

While the boys (Bennett and David) were out golfing, Mary and myself found ourselves exploring crafting stores.  Honestly, we spent at least two hours between Crafts 2000 and JoAnns.  It was a pretty amazing way to spend my Sunday afternoon. 🙂 The new...

My new best friends.

Who would they be?  My Nike running shoes. I have been doing my best to walk at least two miles a night…to take part of the weight loss effort that I’ve been putting forth.  I will admit that I haven’t been walking and exercising as much as I probably...

Our nightly view.

I will never speak out against hunting…but ever since we moved to Wheeling, I really don’t think I could be the person pulling the trigger on a deer.  We seriously have at least five deer EVERY day at Willow Glen…either on the front lawn, running in front of our...

Playin’ with pups.

Our dogs are so cute and playful.  Bennett has this game where he hides under blankets/sheets and they try to dig him out.  Sometimes it’s dangerous…but it’s usually lots of fun.  Obviously Bennett took the risk today and he buried himself under the...

50th Wedding Invites

What do you know?  I can post pictures two days in a row. 🙂 The one I chose to represent my day was of the invitations I created for a 50th Wedding Anniversary of my step-grandparents.  Paul and Mom trusted me enough to allow my creative genius to flow and...

Blog Challenge

I read somewhere that there was a challenge to bloggers to take a picture every day for 365 days…to track your life for a year in photos.  It could be of new people they meet, new food they tried, great scenery that they wanted to capture, etc.  I thought it...

Gone but not forgotten.

I have to admit that I haven’t been very good lately at keeping up on the blog….which is what someone also reminded me of tonight at dinner. 🙂 Bennett and I have been in cleaning mode at our house…trying to make it more live-able instead of just having our crap...

What the hail?

Here’s the second video that I’ve been promising people.  This is the aftermath of the hail storm that hit Wheeling just a couple of weeks ago.  It is seriously amazing how much snow and leaves were on the ground after just an hour……in the middle of...
