wednesday wanderings

Well puke-ocalypse has made it’s rounds. My Soldier is sick. {this is me sad} The Soldier is one of those people who never seems to get sick. And when he does get sick he’s too much of a manly type man to just give in and admit defeat. He’s been like this since I’ve known him. And he’s really only…

mary poppins and the flu

So last Wednesday one of my BFF’s came into town. She reminds me of Mary Poppins. She’s serious, maternal, fun and has a quarky love interest/hubby. {oh, and she was my maid of honor that one time I got married to that one kid whom i still love.} In her Mary Poppins bag of wonders she brought her oh-so-funny hubby…

the oops and the fix

So once upon a time I almost ruined my favorite chairs. As seen here with My Helper circa 2010: …and here with The Cadet circa 3 weeks ago: These are lovely, beautifully made, vintage chairs purchased in Dallas before we moved to this vintage-less island we call home. {out of an act of pure submission to my absentee Soldier i…

friday confession

This one might come as shock. I. HATE. TSUNAMIS. {please know that i don’t discriminate. i also hate those geological wonders that cause the tsunamis.} So, for those of you living under a rock, a catastrophic 8.9m earthquake hit off the coast of Japan yesterday. My heart broke as I saw the news footage of the quake and the resulting…

cozy coffee

One of my BFFs {best friends forever for those who have progressed beyond 7th grade maturity} had a birthday 2 weeks ago. A random selection of ladies, and by random, I mean her closest friends on this here island, all got together to celebrate 34 years of her fabulous life. We went to Romano’s Macaroni Grill and had delicious calorie-ridden…

wednesday wanderings

I’m back. {not that i left or anything} I fell off the map because My Soldier was still gone, I was am swimming in laundry, and there has been a lot of other hoopla going on. But! I have not completely ignored the interwebs and all of their goodness. {you lucky ducks you} This loverly quilt made with Liberty of…
