As the title implies, Paul is to blame for what happened. Once upon a time, many years ago, we needed a new car. We went to a local Chevy dealer and we test-drove a four-door sedan. It was a typical family car, fairly good on gas, and plenty big enough for the four of us.… Continue reading It’s All Paul’s Fault
Hi there! Catie here!! So working on being a more frequent blogger hasn't been going so well. What can I say? I have winter doldrums and haven't been following through with much at all really. The big news around here is that within one week both Lena and I bought new cars! I decided in… Continue reading Our Driveway Looks Like a Chevy Dealership – Just The Way Paul Likes It
Hi there, Catie here! Happy Superbowl Sunday, if you celebrate and just plain Happy Sunday if you don't (like us.) What's have we been up to, you ask? Lets see... Lena and Bina thoroughly enjoyed their two week cruise, but I'll let Lena tell you all about it. Paul and I did pretty well managing… Continue reading It’s Been Busy!
Hi there, Catie here! Two weeks in a row, impressive right? I thought it would be fun to do something a little different this week. Instead of a boring super-fun weekly recap I thought Paul, Lena and I could each share a few of our favorite things. I decided to break it down to our… Continue reading The Completely Unsolicited “Things we Love” Post
Hi there, Catie here to wreck enhance your day on the internet! I'm happy to announce that we've survived another holiday season despite the cheeto-in-chief's best efforts.

We Sure Did!

Paul comes into the kitchen for something and jokingly quotes South Park. I give him a look. You know, the look. The one wives give their husbands. And… Continue reading Quick TV Followup
Hi there, Catie here! Actual footage of me on vacation 😉 Can you believe it's been a whole MONTH since we've updated?? I can't, lets catch up! The last time we posted was just before the mid-term elections. I had expected to wake up in an even redder country the next day (I have very… Continue reading So Blogging Regularly Isn’t Our Strong Suit, You Know You Love Us Anyway…
Happy Election Day! Hi there, Catie here! I have mixed feelings about today. Mostly I'm hopeful about the blue wave that everyone has been talking about, even if it does seem more like a blue ripple right now (come on west coast, make me proud.) I'm also a little sad because… Continue reading Winter Is Coming…
One if my favorite things to do is watch HGTV. If I'm alone and I need background noise, that's what I put on. And sometimes, Catie joins me. (And Paul cringes because he knows we'll be getting ideas--hahaha.) The shows I prefer best are the ones where they buy a beaten-up house and then remodel… Continue reading Doing Parenting Right (I hope…)
Hi there, Catie here! I meant to post on Friday but as always time got away from me. In my defence we've had a very busy weekend. Friday - The usual, work, quick dinner and a ton of errands in the evening for all the adults. It doesn't sound like much but all those errands… Continue reading So I Missed Friday
