When Ben (my husband) and I first started hanging out he tried to win my heart by giving me two cds.  He gave me his band's (Young Agent Jones) recent cd and a mixed cd.  It worked.  Also this cd introduced me to The Shins, which is now one of my favorite bands.  I'm sure my best friend Nikki got so sick of hearing these cds during our 30 minute commute to and from the W (Mississippi University for Women). My First Mixed Cd from...

Yesterday I had a typical Monday and by typical I mean that it sucked.  But to make up for it, my wonderful husband took me to Lowe's!  Ben really knows how to make my day better.  Look at these pretty flowers that we added to our front flower bed.

I am really into tiny houses.  Especially Eco-friendly,  energy efficient,  recyclable tiny lake cabins. What is better than a cabin on a lake during the summer?  Nothing I can think of really. Well,  maybe a tiny cabin on a lake with a tiny dog beside me.  Zoe would love this cabin. (Ben- My birthday is coming up. ...

Sometimes I have trouble conveying to my husband exactly how I want our yard to look.  We are working on our landscaping and I have a vision but I talk really fast and a lot, so sometimes I overload him.  In his defense I usually say something like, "Ben I want us to have almost too many  flowers like a cottage garden."  And I often say to him, while he is driving, "See that yellow bush over there, that is exactly the one I want" or "look at those shutters, they are perfect."   Upon reflection I realized that these two...

I have what I assume is food poisoning.  It started last night with me just feeling light headed and nauseated.  I thought maybe my blood pressure was high, so Ben and I took my blood pressure and it wasn't.  I thought maybe I just needed sleep so I went to bed early.  At about midnight, I woke up covered in sweat and in so much pain.  It was horrible.  All night I kept waking up and running to the bathroom.  Needless to say I had to call in sick to work today.   I hate being sick and I hate...

My husband is wonderful and I have mentioned before that he makes mixed CDs (not actually mixed tapes) for me for holidays and random occasions. I love these CDs so much.  Isn't a mixed CD such a thoughful gift?  I decided to share this mixed CD because I think that you can tell a lot about a person by the music they enjoy. This is a list of songs from the CD he made for me for Christmas 2009. Christmas 2009 Mix Side Note:  Ben said, "I...
