The Last Train From Paris

The scene: “It is June, 1940, aboard a train leaving Paris. the German troops are about to enter Paris. The roads south are a hopeless snarl; the trains are full and one cannot find space aboard them. Yet to remain in the city and see her brutalized by the Nazis will not be a pleasant […]

Lamp Lights

We bought a tent last year at a garage sale for $10. We decided we would become campers. Why wouldn’t we become campers at that price?¬† Unsurprisingly we have camped a total of…one…times this summer. But I think the “coolness” of the place makes up for the lack of quantity. Allow me to explain. Ness […]

Vegas Baby

Aubrey had the genius idea awhile back for an annual girls-trip with our high school buddies. This year, for the first year, we landed on Vegas. I am seriously so lucky to have the friends I do. I just love ’em. ¬†Chelsea, Aubrey Brittney and I all made it for this trip. We missed everyone […]

These Pretzels Are Making Me Thirsty!

So Vanessa called me back in February to let me know Jerry Seinfeld was coming to Boise.THE Jerry Seinfeld. We didn’t even hesitate and instantly bought our tickets. The months leading up to the big day were riddled with texts back and forth of Seinfeld quotes. We had to be prepared. We started off the […]

When in Rome…

We had a little murder mystery dinner at our place the other night. We love these. My friend, Marilee, introduced me to them 5 or so years ago and we’ve attended/hosted quite a few since. Our favorite part is dressing up. Well, actually Doug hates to dress up, but I love it and I love […]

Kaylee’s Married!

I was going through some pictures and came across all these that I had forgotten about from Kaylee’s wedding. Which was beautiful by the way.     I also was lucky enough to meet up with these wonderful ladies for lunch at Millhollow. Obviously, that’s THE place to eat in Rexburg. It was so nice […]

Potty Party

  First off a little disclaimer, yes I realize that this makes the third Harry Potter post on our blog. Yes I’m slightly embarrassed about this. I just want you to know that we know this might make us look like huge weird Harry Potter freaks. I dunno, maybe we are. Well, with that being […]

Goodbye Winto

A few weeks ago Doug and I spontaneously decided to buy my cousin’s car. Turned out to be a fantastic decision because it meant we got to go to Seattle on a weekend trip! We’ve been thinking for awhile that it was probably time to upgrade from my ’92 mint green Honda Accord that’s been […]

Hello, Goodbye, Happy Birthday

Everyone is growing up and becoming real adults; buying houses, having babies, starting careers. When did that happen? I still feel like I need to ask my mom if I can have a waterfight with the neighbor kids in the backyard. Well, despite our best efforts we’re all getting older. Aubrey and Skyler just made […]

A Beautiful Bride

Brittney just got married on Saturday! It was a beautiful reception and of course Britt was breathtaking in her killer dress. It was fun spending time with my buddies before they all head off to different parts of the States. The reception was the night before the wedding and Doug had to head back to […]
