Procrastination Station

When I was a teenager, I discovered Dr. Seuss’ ‘Oh, the places you’ll go!’.  It was much needed at the time and I read and re-read it so much that my original copy fell apart.  I have 3 on my bookcase at this point in time and I can’t say that they’ll be the last.  Here’s an excerpt that’s really got me pinned at the moment: The Waiting Place… …for people just waiting. Waiting for a train to go or a bus to come, or a plane to go or the mail to come, or the rain to go or the phone to ring, or the snow to snow or waiting around for a Yes or a No or waiting for their hair to grow. Everyone is just waiting. Waiting for the fish to bite or waiting for wind to fly a kite or waiting around for Friday night or waiting, :READ MORE:

Fresh Bread Morning

  I’ve been a wife for all of a month, but apparently baking bread is something I already love to do.  I feel super domesticated, but I also have a freezer stocked full of sourdough so that’s okay, I guess.  There’s something so relaxing about kneading dough whilst zoning out to your favorite (at the time) album, I could do it all day. I’ve spent a couple of weeks experimenting with a few recipes, mostly free-form.  They were good, but I wanted something softer and airier.  I also love the fact that these are made in loaf tins – it means less oven time, smaller gas bills and sandwich shaped bread.  Here is the recipe I like the most, thus far: Sandwich Sourdough Bread (2 loaves) 2 tsp yeast 1 ½ cups warm water 1 cup sourdough starter 2 ½ cups of organic all purpose flour (in the loaves pictured I :READ MORE:

My Maker

My guy is pretty good to look at, but also pretty good at what he does.  Today he’s been screen printing a whole bunch of shirts for an upcoming order and he’s wearing the apron I got him for Christmas – swooooooon. Anyway, I though I might just show off my man-candy to y’all because he just looked so adorable, being a maker and whatnot. Follow my blog with Bloglovin

A week in the life…

This little gremlin has got a sweet life.  All the love she could ever need, a smoothie every morning and girl cat named George that puts up with Scarlett’s crap on an hourly basis.  Not a lot of excitement happened this week, we are recovering from too many late nights spent working (or playing Donkey Kong) and the weather has been terribly unpredictable, but I still managed to get some cute shots of my cute girl over the course of our bleary-eyed week. 1.  Stuffing her face with her new favorite food (dumplings, recipe here) whilst watching her new favorite movie – Totoro. 2.  Perfecting the Gaga, not even paying any mind to her attentive entourage of one. 3.  A makeshift collage with wrapping paper and backyard objects.  Ugly, but still kept her occupied for a good hour or so (she had to find the backyard ‘treasures’) 4.  Apparently architecture is :READ MORE:

Around our home…

  I thought it might be fun to show y’all a little glimpse of our day to day.  We’re a young family, just starting out on one heck of a tight budget, so as much as I would like to splurge on pretty things from Antropologie, I just can’t.  Luckily for me (and my husband), I have fairly eclectic taste (that’s the nice way of saying that I’m still a college student deep down).  I love our 70′s hawaiian lounges, I love the nonspecific art we’ve both collected over the years, I love ALL of our vintage tennis rackets and I love that this place feels like OUR home. Last weekend, Clint’s parents bought a house that we will eventually be moving into.  It will be lovely – a separate living area and workspace and a huge workshop out the back that Clint can use for screen printing (or one of :READ MORE:

Extinct

This was my HUSBAND’S wonderful submission to the Extinct Show at Studio &. Artists were called to create a work of art based around the extinction of a tool they use. Here is his statement for the show: “For this project, I imagined a not-so-far future where animals become completely independent from the human race. They refuse to trade with humans…which means we no longer have animal hair products, mice to test science with, etc. Also, in this not-so-far time, we’ve depleted a lot of other things, like nylon, spam, a short-lived reserve of jetpack fuel and hoverboard energy cells, and wall clocks. All this results in me not having paintbrushes in the future. Luckily, the answer was right in front of my face…below my face, growing from my face, to be more specific. I rested in the assurance that if paintbrushes were to become extinct, I always had my trusty :READ MORE:

Mrs.

Well, we made it!  I am now a Mrs. As you can see, you are able to watch our wedding by clicking on the link above.  No, we are not some attention starved family looking to the world for validation (I swear).  We have quite a few members of our family and friends living in Australia, New Zealand and in different states of America who, try as they might, could not make it to the nuptials.  As somewhat of a remedy to this, we decided to live stream it so everyone could enjoy the moments with us! It was a wonderful day.  Super relaxed and, to quote a good friend, “…a no BS wedding”. I am so pleased to now be married to my best friend and partner in life, work and Donkey Kong.  We really are blessed to have found each other on opposite sides of the globe and I’m :READ MORE:

OH, WHAT A WEEK

We’re in the week leading up to the wedding and it is BEDLAM, I tell you!  It’s a simple shindig that we’re trying to keep as low key and laid back as possible.  I don’t know when the decorative flowers are going to arrive, and that’s okay.  I also don’t know if there’s going to be good weather or enough food – also okay.  I DO know one thing, and that is the fact that I will probably be AWOL for a little while thereafter.  I can safely assume that the week after the wedding will be just as hectic as the week preceding.  This being said, I AM STILL WILDLY EXCITED. Just a small roundup for you today, but here’s a glimpse of the going’s on: 1.  My cute little helper.  The kitchen has seen hundreds of sweets, tarts and cookies this week and turns out that my miniature is :READ MORE:

Let’s talk Frederick!

So, today these two idiots had the privilege of being interviewed for ‘Let’s talk Frederick’ on K96 FM Coyote News.  We were interviewed by Haley Hoover, Executive Director for the Frederick Oklahoma Chamber of Commerce and Industry, as apart of their ‘Frederick, where the adventure begins’ series.  Quite apt, as we prepare to embark on a new adventure together in this small, friendly town! It was a lot of fun, we got to talk about the things we were passionate about, our wants for the future and gave a bit of a back story to ‘us’.  You can listen below! Hope you enjoy our awkward giggles and bad jokes. Follow my blog with Bloglovin
