Gone Beachin’

July 14, 2017

ebb + flow :: gone beachin'

After a wild week of house projects, late nights, early mornings and a dash of stress the Red Head and I are heading to Myrtle Beach for his annual family vacation! We’ll be soaking up the sun, swimming in the ocean (I’m the only one that ever goes in the water!), reading books, riding go karts (Red’s request) and checking out the sites before we’re back next week. I’ll see you then. Have a wonderful weekend!


Fantasy Football

ebb + flow :: do better

For the second year in a row, I’ve been roped into a Fantasy Football League with the Red Head and his co-workers. I’m, at best, a poor participant. Last week, I forgot to add a kicker to my lineup (apparently, this is a problem) and I told the Red Head ‘I’m going to do better.’ Here’s a public declaration to try and, at least, fill my entire lineup for the rest of the season. I’m all about little goals or should I say field goals? Ha!

ebb + flow :: paint time

Tomorrow! Tomorrow the Red Head and I close on our new house! It’s full of ugly tile, odd rooms, stained carpet and a bathroom that teleported straight from the 70s. Get excited to follow along as we make it ours, one paint stroke at a time.

ebb + flow :: dubai

Here’s a sentence I never thought I’d write: The Red Head and I just booked a trip to Dubai.

Huh? I’m just as shocked as you but when pals booked an around the world ticket that included some time in the incredible city we decided to crash their party! Any tips for staying cool in the desert in late August? I’m going to need them! More details to come as the big trip gets closer but the countdown is on! I’m pumped.

Chicago Bound

February 26, 2016

ebb + flow :: road trip

I’m clocking out a bit early today and hitting the road for Chicago! I’ll be there the next TWO weekends actually for various wedding activities and am pretty gosh darn excited. For this trip I’m bringing grey dog and the Red Head along so I’ll have some good company to help pass the time on the road. Them and, of course, some good snacks. I’ll try and catch you on Sunday for the wrap up and hope you have the best of weekends!

P.S. This is totally the type of hat/outfit I wear on the road. Ha!

Life Lately

February 22, 2016

ebb + flow :: life lately

The fact that the end of February is nearing has me in a tizzy. So much to do, so little time but we all know how that goes. I realized I hadn’t done a life dump (a la Instagram snaps) lately so I give you some recent scenes from my adventures and a little background on each:

ebb + flow :: gone

Goodbye, snowy Minnesota! Hello, Fort Myers Beach! Later this morning, the Red Head and I are skipping out of town with some pals for a long weekend of sunshine, cocktails, pool time and, I’m sure, some football (you can’t escape the Super Bowl no matter how far you travel!). We booked this trip so many months ago, I can’t believe it’s finally here. I’m hoping to truly unplug the next few days so no wrap up this week but I’ll be back mid-next week for more of the usual shenanigans. Have a good one, friends!
