Alaska – The Pipeline

Alaska – The Pipeline

You have have heard me talk about my upcoming trip to Alaska for months now, and I’m finally HERE!!!  Hooray!  I worked trade shows (homeschool conventions) in Soldotna and Anchorage last week and have one more to do in Fairbanks this week.  Work comes first, obviously, but we’ve had little bits of time here and there for adventures! We were driving to dinner yesterday when I pointed out the window and asked my colleague, “Is that the Alaska pipeline over…

Currently – April 2017

I am currently… Accomplishing:  unpacking some boxes.  We’ve been in our house two and half years!  Oy!  Some of boxes are full of decorating-type things that I didn’t use when we first moved in.  Now I have the itch to change things up, so it’s a good time to sort through those items.  Other boxes are full of stuff we dragged from house to house during our Air Force career.  I need to just.  get.  rid.  of.  them. Feeling:  excited! …

Springerize Your Wardrobe

Spring is officially here, and I’m pretty excited about it!  Autumn fashion rocks my world.  It rocks my world for MONTHS since I live in Coastal Georgia.  (No winter here!) Now it’s time to change things up.  We’ll have highs in the 80s all week, so it’s DEFINITELY time to change things up in a springtime direction! My spring wardrobe could benefit from just a little updating.  Know what I mean?  I finally got a good handle on my wardrobe…

St. Patrick’s Day Savannah Style

When I shared my Springtime Fun List with you I admitted that I had gotten a head start on it.  THIS–attending our first Savannah St. Patrick’s Day Parade–is one of biggest things Gene and I decided to do this spring…even though it happened a few days before spring actually began.

Five Things Friday – All the Happy Happy Things

Five Things Friday – All the Happy Happy Things

My happy meter is pretty much pegged out these days, and I thought I would share a few happy things with you guys today! 1.  We’re camping this weekend!  It’s our first time out this year, and we were READY!  We stayed pretty close to home and don’t have a lot of stuff planned. Maybe a short hike tomorrow. Lots of relaaaaaxing is the primary goal!     2. I recently purchased this awesome, custom necklace from my local Plunder…

Kayaking Season Begins!

Kayaking Season Begins!

Last Saturday Gene and I hit the water again, and it was only FEBRUARY, y’all!  What what?!?  The weather here in Coastal Georgia is always…interesting.  But if February wants to hand us temps around 80, we’re going kayaking! We paddled at George L. Smith State Park last summer and LOVED it!  I nearly had a heat stroke, but I also got some great photos!  You can see those here.  This time the pond looked a lot different because it’s winter…
