The cabinets for the upstairs space are designed and ready to be made, but we skidded to a slight halt when it came time to select the variety of wood.

Easter 1975


Seeing that we’re in the middle of Holy Week, I thought I’d share this photo of me on Easter morning 19 years ago.

August: Osage County


I finally watched August: Osage County last weekend. As is the case with most movies these days, I didn’t get a chance to see it in the theater, so as soon as I saw it was available on Pay Per View, I settled in with Marlboro Man and gave it a shot.

Easter Cookies


This is one of my favorite Easter recipes from my holiday cookbook, so I wanted to share it with you here!

Today, because it’s the start of the weekend, and because I love ya, I’m giving away three (3)of these gorgeous KitchenAid mixers.

The Remaining Windows


We got the remaining windows covered up and the guys are hard at work on them. Getting the old windows covered up actually helps me visualize what it will all look like once it’s done!

Salisbury Steak Meatballs


This is a very special recipe for two important reasons: One, it’s delicious, hearty, and comforting.

Beard or No Beard: The Result!


Thank you so much for voting in my “Beard or No Beard” poll the other day, wherein we all took the liberty of deciding what my brother-in-law Tim should do with his facial hair.

Heaven


I snapped this photo with my cell phone a couple of evenings ago, and when I had a chance to look at it yesterday, I had to chuckle.

My Top 32 Movies of All Time


I’ve spent the last two months gradually compiling a list of my all-time favorite movies. I had to spend that amount of time, because in the past, whenever I’ve attempted to sit down and compile the list in one sitting, I would inevitably leave some important ones out since it’s impossible to reflect upon a lifetime of movie watching all at one go.

Calves, Beards, Kids, and Smiles


Yesterday started early. Around dark-thirty, I think. *Yawwwwwwwwwn*   By the time everyone arrived with their horses, the sun had popped up!

Decisions, Decisions – World or State History Conundrum


By Heather Sanders It is April; the month I typically begin receiving and reading through various homeschooling curriculum and supply catalogs; so naturally, my head is already spinning regarding which courses Meredith and Kenny will take next school year.

Bull in My Yard


I walked outside on the porch yesterday before leaving for church so that I could scratch Hooker‘s ears and reassure her that I love and adore her, which I try to do once a day so she doesn’t ever doubt it, when lo and behold, I came face to face with this bull.

Oh, dear. Oh, my. Oh, help. Oh, BEHAVE! (Name that movie.)   Okay, first of all: the intricate surface of this cake is not due to my superior cake sculpting skills.
