Gardening 2012

.Last weekend was so beautiful we thought we would catch up on all things outdoors.  And we did just that. We loaded the kids into the Passat and headed to Home Depot.  Of all weekends to have my car still loaded down with conference boxes and unusable, I chose this weekend to do our gardening. […]

Earning His Keep

.We make our kids earn their keep around this house.  Don’t you? Don’t get me wrong, mommy and daddy weren’t chilling in the yard with wine or anything.  We were busy too, but there are no photos to prove it so you’ll have to take our word on it.  Or I guess you could ask […]

Spring has Sprung

.Spring is definitely here in Atlanta. We’ve already had quite a few days of 80+ degree temps. We’ve been spending every single evening and weekend outside burning off energy and doing yard work. Last week while we were baking in 86 degree weather wearing shorts and flip flops some of my northern friends and family […]

Our Backyard is Transforming

.We did it. We finally bought a playset for the backyard. If you’ve been around for the last year or so we’ve done a lot of talking about playsets. We’ve done a boat load of research. We’ve ordered catalogs. We’ve reviewed DVDs. We’ve visited local distributors. We’ve read reviews and we’ve even checked out playsets […]

I Dream Big

.The last few weeks have been busy. No wait. That is an understatement. They’ve been ridiculously out of control busy. Everything that could add to our schedules has been added. Work has been overwhelming. Commutes have been horrible. Stress levels are high. We’ve missed sending cards and/or gifts for anniversaries, birthdays and even Valentine’s Day. […]

Gardening Season is Officially Over

.We picked the last of our tomatoes and green peppers.  Winter must be approaching. The weather in Atlanta has been beautiful this fall.  It’s been sunny and warm with cool mornings.  However, this last week the temps have dipped down to frost warning levels. So I picked the last of the veggies in the garden […]

30 Things List Update

.While I didn’t accomplish everything on my list, I did pretty well.  Or at least I think I did and I guess that is all that matters.  I started my list 30 Things in 60 Days just over 60 days ago.  Here is a quick update on where I stand. 1.   Try at least 6 […]

30 Things in Almost 60 Days Before Summer Ends

.I spent most of the Spring thinking “I’ll get to that this summer.”  More specifically “I will organize all of our closets over the summer” or “Over the summer I’ll focus on rolling out new My Hello Designs products” or “We need to finish our backyard landscaping this summer.” This is my favorite one though […]

Out of Control Garden

. As the season moves forward and my garden continues to grow, I have definitely learned some valuable tips & tricks for next year.  For today’s Tuesday Ten I will share some of my insight with you. I will not grow beans again.  They have taken over the garden and have wrapped their spiny little […]

Two Peas in a Pod

.Am I referring to the inseparable brothers who do absolutely everything together and mimic each others every move? Or I am referring to the pea pods that are now thriving in my garden? We discovered the pea pods on Friday and have been enjoying eating them all weekend fresh from the garden.  Yum!  Who would […]
