American Woods Favorites

Well, I've had myself another scanning party. I've been stuck at home trying to get used to the bottom braces I had put on Monday morning. 5 months down, only 12 more to go! Woo! Today Cory and I wanted to share some of our favorite polaroids we took with Impossible Project's American Woods Edition Film. We had so much fun with this edition. Thank you...

Petunia’s Pies & Pastries

For the past few years Jade and I have been *mostly* gluten free.

Though this week really wasn't a complete wash, it kind of felt like one since I was fighting off illness, Jade wasn't sleeping the best and we had to postpone some plans.  On top of that we had to cancel the viewings of some possible new places to move in to. At least we were able to see the Woodburn Tulip Festival before it closed, check out...

Derby Day at the Lizard Lounge

Besides Jade mentioning her love for the incredible hats from time to time, we've never had a reason to celebrate the Kentucky Derby. We've never been to Kentucky...

It's the start of a new month which means it's time for our monthly photo booth strip. If you learn anything about us from this photo booth strip let it be this: we are complete weirdos and we wouldn't have it any other way. And now, a few links we are endlessly enraptured with this week...

How has your week been? My doctor put me on another round of antibiotics so this sickness is going to be wiped out of my body for good! Yesterday was the first day in 2 weeks that I didn't feel like complete death. The hubby and I were even able to venture out and go on a little coffee date. Last time I left the...
