Oy vey…

It’s been too long since the last post. I know.
So… maybe I’m not the greatest blogger…
I’m really going to make a better effort from here on out, I promise.

Let’s get back on track starting TODAY!

TODAY…Happens to be our 3 year wedding anniversary!!! It’s been a fabulous and fun 3 years. And here’s to wishing for 100 more that only get better! Love you, babe.

Our home has grown by 4 feet!

His name is Buster…

Last Saturday, Craig and I adopted Buster from the North Shore Animal League. He is a Catahoula Leopard Dog mix. We don’t know what he is mixed with, but we have a feeling he’s going to be big when he grows up. He’s 5 months old now and just over 30 lbs. He is not house-broken yet… so that is proving to be our first challenge.

He loves sitting and sleeping in the grass outside on our walks…

Isn’t he adorable!??!

Spring has sprung!

Hi Everyone,

I know… I know… this post is LONG overdue. We’ve been really bad bloggers lately. The past month (and a half) has flown by. I should have updated this along the way, and now I’ve fallen behind. Lots to catch up on…

So, here goes…

Craig had this old filing cabinet in his office. It’s an odd green color and sort of beat up. Nothing a can of spray paint can’t fix:

Here’s the after photo… please ignore all the wires behind the cabinet. And again, don’t look directly into the wallpaper:

Another small improvement we made is to the dining room. As you may remember, we lost the only lighting source when the old chandelier was moved to our bedroom:

Papa Naz came over to install this fixture he happened to have in the basement. You gotta love that!

Our dining room bliss was short-lived, however… All the melting snow on the roof, followed by the crazy storms we had at the beginning of Spring, created a leak in our roof… Right over the dining room:

Craig and I have been trying to keep up with the roof maintenance… but since it was neglected for so long before we moved in, it needs a lot of work. Our old slate roof is just not cutting it anymore:

We’re considering replacing the roof with standard asphalt tiles in black:

There’s a ton more to update, so stay tuned!!!
