Yes, that's right! No beating around the bush - we're jumping into the world of home ownership - with a brand-spankin' new house!

We Moved! (A Year Ago)
Don't you just love the Facebook feature that shares past memories with you? Well this gen crossed my feed today: That's me (Beth) bugging out at the insanity that comes with moving. Especially when you arrive home from your honeymoon and (no joke) immediately start hauling your things from one place to another. What made… Continue reading We Moved! (A Year Ago)

WE DID IT!
So we used to have fairly regular content here.... then the big move to Pittsburgh, and then we got engaged and then, besides the desk and office content we shared it's been nothing but crickets 'round these parts. While there was a TON of DIY put into our wedding, there just wasn't time to share… Continue reading WE DID IT!
Good Housekeeping FEATURE?!?!
We get fun bumps here and there to the blog. Usually it's from Pinterest. Or our one EPIC bump care of my favorite bloggers, John & Sherry of Young House Love, when we met them on their book tour and Bill drew them a castle. But I just realized.... WE WERE FEATURED. ON THE HOME … Continue reading Good Housekeeping FEATURE?!?!
Oh My Gawd You Guys! Bill popped the question on the top deck of a Gateway Clipper sightseeing cruise while coasting down the Monongahela River. He waited just until we reached the point where the Mon & the Allegheny Rivers join to become the Ohio, at The Point, to propose. Always one to get 'to… Continue reading We’re Engaged!
This One Time, I Illustrated a Children’s Book
HI! *echoesthroughouttheemptyness* It's been a while. But rather than give excuses, let's just get to it then, shall we? Everyone's family has traditions, especially around the holidays. For my family, one of those traditions was the telling of the story of Meriweather the Elf. Ages ago, my mother had typed up the story and even… Continue reading This One Time, I Illustrated a Children’s Book
FEED THE WALLS ~ Or, Finally Hanging Stuff
Yes, that's right -- we've achieved a goal! We hung things on the wall! Ok, technically, these were hung before thanksgiving. .....yes, we're that behind in blogland. Oops! The frame on the right is a framed print we got when touring the Yuengling Brewery a few summers ago. It's lived in a tube since then,… Continue reading FEED THE WALLS ~ Or, Finally Hanging Stuff
Expedit Bookshelf Additions
The holidays were good to us! The winter weather gave us a break to make travel across Pennsylvania easy, and even gave us the chance to visit New York City to see the lights too. And when we finally made our return trip to Pittsburgh, the car was loaded down with goodies from family and… Continue reading Expedit Bookshelf Additions
Resolutions New and Old ~ 2014
So last year we shared a recap of some things we wanted to make happen around here. Some of those things happened.... annnnd some of those didn't. Here's a quick recap. Feed Our Walls -- that is, actually hang some art on our mostly naked walls! Continue to make the Tiny Kitchen in Pittsburgh more… Continue reading Resolutions New and Old ~ 2014
2013 In Review
As we all bid 2013 adieu, here's a look back at the fun things that happened... Here's an excerpt: The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 27,000 times in 2013. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 10 sold-out performances… Continue reading 2013 In Review
Wishing you a safe and happy holiday! ~ Beth & Bill
Escape to Erie
One of the perks of my new company is that they're pretty awesome around the holidays and closed the office for Black Friday. That meant a nice long weekend to enjoy. Having not hit the road for fun in a while, we decided to hot the road just a few hours north to Erie, Pa.… Continue reading Escape to Erie
