Around the House

Things have been really quiet around here, and I haven't had too much to post about. We've had a ton of rain lately and even a little snow! Not much and not enough to stick, but just enough to get a few (unpaid, ugh) hours off of work and a nice afternoon nap. Unless you are Adam, and you work from home, and then it is just business as usual.

Last weekend, we drove to Nashville to do some shopping at Opry Mills. Adam spent way too much money on new Lego sets (that is what he collects). And I might have spent a little too much at the Vera Bradley outlet, and spent too much time slobbering over the Coach bags, that I could never really allow myself to buy.

So instead of sharing pictures of any recent adventures, I thought I'd post about a few things happening around the house.

One of the Lego sets Adam bought was a massive 2,000 plus piece City Hall. We started putting it together last weekend and it took something like 5 hours to build only the first level. We stopped there, and hope to finish it this weekend. What a project!

Yes, I love scentsy and I love scented things in general. I realize that good smells are something in life that make me really happy and calm. And the scent of the week this week? French Lavender. Lovely.

I've been practicing my paper folding skills since Adam got me this book for Christmas! It seems like such a simple thing but it is actually pretty challenging. I guess I have to just keep on trying.

We have been keeping this little one for my mom the last week while she is out of town. And dogs just don't come sweeter than Carlee. It has been fun to have a dog in the house again. It is nice to come home from work and have her here because she acts like you coming home is the BEST THING THAT EVER HAPPENED IN THE HISTORY OF EVER.


  1. I love having a dog to come home to, because you know that no matter how crappy a day it was, you just made theirs by walking in. :-)

    I want some legos to play with. That looks like fun!

    I'm a terrible folder. Just god awful. I would never be able to do origami.

  2. That was one of the best things about getting another is always so nice to have someone so excited to see you come home...or even get out of bed in the morning. Something about that unconditional love that just melts my heart.

  3. WHOA, that lego set sounds really amazing! Legos are a cool thing to collect...I never thought about getting a really interesting set. They've gotten so expensive! I had to get a set for a coworker and my jaw dropped when I saw that a tiny Harry Potter castle was like $100!
