What a fun time! I bought Chris and I tickets as a Christmas gift to go see the Barenaked Ladies in concert opening for Hootie & the Blowfish this summer. Chris has only ever been to see one concert, and it’s when I took him years ago to go see… wait for it… Barenaked Ladies. That concert was one of the most fun I had ever been to and Chris ...

I’m hoping that by the time this post goes live that Monkey will have another episode of The Vacuum Podcast out for you to listen to!! Monkey has been a passionate kid about vacuums since the age of 2 years old. He knows every brand, type, use, inner workings, options, add-ons, accessories, and all there is to know about vacuums. I know more about vacuums than I ever cared to ...

Remember that time I said I wasn’t going to work at my second job anymore? Well, that only lasted not even a semester, whoops! I tried my best not to pick up shifts during the fall semester last year in 2018. I managed to make it to November, but they needed help and I felt like I could handle a few nights. It was no problem, so I signed up ...

Each summer I’ve gone to the county fair with my family. The tradition continued as I met Chris. My mom used to handle all of the money coming into the fair in a boarded-up building. She’d work 12 hour days for five days in a row during this time. My dad would take us to the fair to see her and to enjoy the fair several days of the week ...

We’ve had quite a bit of fun this summer with our adventure to Bermuda, buying scooters, then we had an out of town guest, my aunt from Florida, visiting, then the power outage… It’s been a nonstop summer this year, much as the same I’m sure everyone else is having 🙂 Chris and I have been to Florida to stay with my aunt and uncle many years in a row. ...

Everything’s a bit out of order, but I tried to put these posts in some sort of combination that made sense for the topic and the photos. With our new scooters, I’ve been riding pretty much anywhere I can and it is so nice not to watch my gas tank sink to empty so often in the summer on my RAV4. Gas for our scooters is about $3.00~ for the ...

This summer we visited Chris’ aunt for a day up in NY state on Lake Oscawana. It’s a fun little trip that takes a few hours to get to on winding roads, but once we’re there we enjoy the view and the waterway. This was before we lost power, little did we know what the next few days would bring! It was super hot, so I eventually ended up in ...

Before you jump to any conclusions, we didn’t skip paying our electric bill 🙂 A recent storm knocked out power to our area for a wonderful 48 hours. The likes of which we haven’t seen since Hurricane Sandy took our power out for 11-14 days, the roads were a mess, and you couldn’t go anywhere. Then right after, there was a massive snowstorm to complicate things! It was a delightful ...

This isn’t a book review, but I wanted to share that I came across this book idea from a post on Instagram or maybe on Amazon somewhere or a blog about meal planning… I can’t remember. I watched @FedandFit’s IG channel for prepping these meals and fell in love with the simplicity and the ease of planning, shopping, prepping, and cooking. Even Chris found it easy to help prep the ...

I mentioned in my recap of our cruise that we had a lot of fun on scooters around Bermuda. While I have ridden scooters in Bermuda before, it was Chris’ first time and he absolutely loved it! For years now, I’ve said to Chris I wanted to save up to get a Vespa or something similar. We live in a beachy town, with quite a lot to do locally, just ...
