Music Monday: Mardi Gras

Written on March 7, 2011 at 12:52 am, by

Mardi Gras! We love us some Fat Tuesday. We both took French in high school and at my high school the big French party was Mardi Gras. We blew Cinco de Mayo out of the water.

I was president of French Club my senior year (nerd cred) and organizing a … Continue

Jake and I have a hot date to go see Harry Potter today! I’m super excited. We usually go to the midnight showing for the Potter movies on Thursday, but we must be getting old because we just couldn’t talk ourselves into only getting four hours of sleep just to … Continue

So… we are still working on tackling all of the boxes. But I got the books unpacked yesterday, which is a bigger deal than it sounds. We have a massive amount of books; we’re not called Nerd Nest for nothing. I decided to color code all non-textbooks. Here’s a peak … Continue

Music Week: Wake Up Songs

Written on October 28, 2010 at 10:01 pm, by

Jake’s favorite playlist that he’s made on our iTunes is his Wake Up playlist. We listen to it almost every Saterday morning. It’s a good mix of songs about sleeping, not wanting to wake up, hating the person that is waking you up, getting up, and appreciating the upcoming day.… Continue

As I said in this week’s Music Monday post, we are doing a full week of music this week! Mostly it will be playlists, but as I was making our Halloween song playlist I realized that a lot of the songs that make me think of Halloween only do so … Continue

Music Monday

We are spending all of our time packing boxes and needed an upbeat playlist to keep us moving! It is awesome as a “while I’m cleaning” playlist too. Hooray for motivation!

Get a playlist! Standalone player Get Ringtones

We should find out if we have our final loan approval today (we’re nervous). If we do, then we’ll … Continue

You can’t get through October without cracking open a pumpkin!

Jack O' Lantern

Jake got a little “Psyco” with the pumpkin. We waded through all of our boxes and cleared enough space to do a little carving.

Cutting into the Pumpkin

It took a while to convince her to take out the pumpkin seeds and inner goop; … Continue

We made Halloween cookies! These were proudly mixed, rolled, and decorated by Miss Eliza.

Halloween Cookies

We made them with my Aunt Beth (who Eliza is named after… Eliza’s middle name is Beth), but forgot our camera… so we only have pictures of the cookies. Man, I can’t wait to have a … Continue
