Going way back to the beginning of the month, we celebrated Sam's birthday. He only request was that I get my butt in the kitchen and make him a homemade German Chocolate cheesecake. So I had to call up Aunt Sara to get the recipe and tips for how to not to ruin this special cake. But success in the end! Happy Birthday to the Hubs!

I found some spare time a few weeks ago and whipped up this fancy pillow cover with a set of vintage sheets that I picked up at the Goodwill for 5$ --- my kind of shopping!

Fall is officially around the corner, and I refuse to admit that it actually might already be here. I'm not happy about this, and I'm really not happy about Starbucks "Early Arrival" of the pumpkin spice latte....even if they do taste like heaven. But with that comes the need for fire wood, so Sam taught me how to use the chainsaw and we got to cuttin'!

Story of my life - Kona not listening while trying to play fetch. This is what I get. No toy of any kind could persuade her to run around... it's like she's saying "silly Mom, fetch is for dogs. Obviously I'm not a dog...I'm a hooman!"

And another example of the Hooman Dog - chair sitting. And sniffing the newest addition to our library. Love this book BTW, you should all check out Young House Love.

Sam and I took a few days off work to trek across the desert to visit my parents in CA. So I snapped a few photos of the house to carry with me on the days when I miss my hometown the most.

The skateboards were made by my Grandpa, and Dad collected many of these from Ebay to bring a bit of Grandpa into our lives.

Mom and I got to work creating this cute gallery wall about their breakfast nook. I think it turned out perfectly! And the table is filled with vintage marbles, so charming!

While in CA, we swung by our wedding photographers house to have some anniversary pictures taken. This is one of my favorites!

And lastly, back in Arizona, we have some new windows to install in our house, so we took a trip to the Home Depot to purchase some tools and whatnot, and of course, the Hooman Dog decided that walking was just too much. Riding is the way to go.

What have you been up to?

  1. Hi! I'm stopping by from Life Rearranged. Glad I did because, boy! So many things in this post! // Are you going to give away the secret German chocolate cheesecake recipe? Because I want it if you ever do. // Our lab (chocolate) doesn't like to play fetch either! I always thought it was because he was dumb. "You are a Labrador RETRIEVER, now fetch!" But no. It's because he thinks he's hooman. // Love, love, love those boards and the significance behind them. Also love those boots you are wearing in that anniversary pic. // Have a great week! xo, ab
