Over the weekend I came across a sweet scene. I quickly grabbed my camera and started snapping.

Now I know why I have dog hair all over my pillow ...

(Notice the post-nap gunk in his eye ...)


I love these guys.

Lazy Halloween decor

Since we're not going to be around for Halloween this year (we'll be in Philly) I didn't want to go all out on decor but I still wanted to put something festive by our front door.
My criteria: simple, cute (no ghouls for me!) and cheap.

I started with some branches from the back yard and some craft birds from Michael's (I really wanted crows but I could only find white doves).

After spray-painting the branches and birds black, I arranged the branches in a pot we had lying around and then hot-glued the birds to the branches. I picked up a few pumpkins at the grocery store and voila - easy Halloween decor!

Now I just have to hope that the neighborhood cats don't try to catch my baby ravens (as Josh likes to call them)!

1 year

We just realized that today is the 1 year anniversary of us moving into our house. Time has really flown by and its hard to believe we've lived here for a whole year! We still love the house and it still feels new to us ... and we also still have many, many things we'd like to do to it!
