First holiday season in our home

By in Family, Main

Click on my cookie-decorating self to see our Christmas 2010 photo album: This has been SUCH a great holiday season so far, for a lot of reasons. 1. This is our first year truly celebrating the season in this house. Last year we didn’t decorate or put up a tree or exchange gifts. It’s been [...]

A Difficult Week

By in Family, Main, NaNoWriMo, Pictures

Things to be grateful for this week: 1. My mother had surgery and is okay. 2. Jim wrecked his dad’s motorcycle and is okay. 3. This week at work was awful, and it’s over. 4. Writing meeting today with friends was a great outlet. :) 5. I was not on call this week. 6. My [...]

Vampire critics do not combat beer car indignation.

By in Main

Brandice: “I can’t stand that beer commercial with the car that’s a grill and a keg and pops popcorn! Blatantly impossible, because how did they get that stupid car to the stadium?” Jim: “Steered it while pushing, or a tow truck.” Brandice: “No way. There’s no tow truck shown and the steering column is replaced [...]

Wife Blink

By in Main

Jim just used the word “dissonance” in a sentence. I am not fooled into believing he knows what that word means, so I am giving him the Wife Blink. *blinnnnk* You know. The slow blink that says all those things that wives don’t have to say because they have a specific blink for it. If [...]

Jim’s Sportster

By in Main, Pictures

Playing around with a shot that I took of Jim’s bike in Camera+, which I continue to heart. ;) He uses the black and white shot for his iPhone 4 background and he’s positioned all of his apps in such a way that they don’t block the picture. (Meaning: He has four pages of apps [...]

$2 Check for Pickles

By in Main, Pictures, Videos

Any of you long time reader/followers remember the day I wrote Jim a $2.00 check for pickles? That was in July of 2007 (I can’t believe it was that long ago), and I would like to submit evidence that the $2.00 check is STILL on our fridge, although now it’s a different fridge in a [...]

Dishwashers, Doorways, Fur-Spewage

By in Family, Main, Pictures

Old dishwasher that came with the house: New (to us) dishwasher that Jim’s parents no longer need because it was replaced after their house fire (it still works perfectly fine, just needed cleaned up): Jim and his dad were working hard on switching them out today, and then they fixed the downstairs shower so that [...]

Pics – Christmas and Mom’s 50th

By in Family, Main, Pictures

I’ve finally started editing photos from Christmas and my mother’s surprise birthday party for her 50th birthday… funny how moving and then unpacking will just eat away an entire month of one’s existence. It feels really good to be getting caught up this weekend. Click on present-gleeful Damien and Ben to see my Flickr album [...]

Housewarmings and Laura and Beer, Oh My!

By in Family, Main

HOLY CRAP, it’s cold. I’m sitting at my desk (which is no longer under piles and piles of boxes and various non-unpacked rubble) waiting for Laura to call me to pick her up at the airport, because this weekend is… OUR HOUSEWARMING! I am completely psyched, and our house is in really good shape, considering [...]

Saying Goodbye to Apartment Life

By in Family, Main

Wow, last night was strange. I went over to do a last vacuuming of our apartment before we hand over the keys, and it was like a flood of emotion to go through that empty apartment one last time. So many big things happened in that apartment over the few years Jim and I lived [...]

Jim and I are buying a house! We should be closing on this house in North Canton in mid to late December and we are really excited. :) We signed a purchase agreement over a week ago, and all the bank stuff has been started, so now it’s just a waiting game. Here are the [...]

Big Grown-Up Step: A House

By in Family, Main

I’m sitting at Starbucks, and I should be writing my Nanowrimo novel, but instead I’ve spent the past hour getting caught up on all of you, your blog posts and Facebook updates and comments you’ve made to me that I haven’t replied to yet. Life is really good right now. Today, Jim and I signed [...]

Stubborn Spouses

By in Main

A testament to how stubborn my husband and I are: B: Want to watch Fringe? J: Sure. B: Okay, it’s on the dvr in the other room. J: Okay, let’s go. *I become distracted by a commercial* J: Hey! Get a move on! B: What? J: I’m not getting up until you get up. B: [...]

Pics: Clippers Game

By in Family, Main

Went with the family to a Clippers game in September and took a few shots (not too many, since this was the day I fell down a flight of stairs and busted my tailbone… I was mostly wandering around like an old lady). My sister is definitely quite the beer-sippin’ baller in this shot. ;) [...]

Bees on the Towpath

By in Main, Pictures

A few weeks ago (prior to busting my tailbone and becoming useless on a bicycle), Jim and I ventured out to the Towpath in Massillon and took a quick bike ride to feel out whether I’d like to start biking or not, and I took the XSi along to take any photographs that might jump [...]

By in Family, Main

I’m going on VACATION! I took a full paid week off of work (something I’ve never had enough vacation given to me to do at any other job… very new and exciting for me), we have family coming in from Minnesota (my aunt/uncle and their five kids) and my family (10 people including parents, 5 [...]

Review: Bob Dylan Concert

By in Main

Yesterday, Jim and I went to Classic Park up in Eastlake, Ohio to see The Bob Dylan Show (Bob Dylan in live in concert with Willie Nelson and John Mellencamp opening). My mom got us tickets a month or so ago, knowing that I have always really wanted to see Bob Dylan live before I [...]

Vid: Harley Ride (July 7, 2008)

By in Main, Videos

Jim and I rode the Harley last summer to meet Matt for some ice cream and then took an evening ride to the bar. I’ve been waiting to edit a lot of motorcycle footage until iMovie updated to 09 and allowed me to speed up clips, so expect more motorcycle videos in the upcoming days! [...]
