Beauty, Babies, and Rugby

This past weekend was the busiest I’ve had all Fall so far.  I don’t think I ever stopped moving!

Thursday night, I got home early from school and instead of sitting around, I headed over to the rugby field to watch the guys practice and take some pictures (still locked on the camera).  Then I went with them to the bar for a drink and

Weekend Tidbits

Happy Monday!  This weekend was so nice and relaxing!  Rob and I haven’t got much time to just spend together at home and we got to do that at least a little bit this weekend.

We’ve had some projects to do around the house.  I had curtains to shorten for our back door (got them at Ikea).

We also got a new closet

Memorial Day Relaxation

So, I sort of took a mini blogging vacation last week and it was a great idea!  I didn’t realize I needed it but it was a nice break from the computer.  I spend a lot of time in front of this little blue screen between blogging and my research.  Sometimes you need to just step away.

Seeing it was a three day weekend with

Old Lady’s Spring Break

Last week was spring break for school, but I was still expected to get work done so all I really did was read and clean.  I know, I’m so exciting, such a party animal!  There were a couple interesting things going on.

Friday, we had people coming over for pumpkin carving!  Rob took off to help get ready.  He had his projects and

Pinterest Project: Roman Shades

I had decided a few weeks ago that if I’m going to pin things on Pinterest, I should start using some of them.  I’m not one of those people who pins everything she likes.  That is fine too but I would never look at them again really.  I pin things that I think will be useful, and I only have a few things that I

Moving Day!

Monday was the big day! I picked up the keys to my new apartment at school. Rob took off the few days he had work this week in order to help me move some things down. We really didn’t have much to take down yet but we would have to buy stuff once we got there. Since my sister was upset last time that I
