Ten years ago today, I experienced my last moment as a single woman and the first moment of never wanting to be without you. Happy fake anniversary, Mr. Wonderful! . (Ok, seriously, I have never celebrated a fake anniversary in my life, but ten years of togetherness is a long time. That's over 10,000 meals that I have cooked for him!) . #fakeanniversary #tenyears #latergram #goodbyesinglelife #helloslavelife #iloveyouhoney via Instagram https://www.instagram.com/p/Bi983qwhLJ4/

Week 19 in my 2018 #housewife #bulletjournal #planner. "Thatch" is a dirty word around our house now. The Man, with some help from my amazing Dad, rented a power rake. We (yes, I helped do yardwork too) tore out over half of the organic material in our lawn. It was bad bad, especially with moss, but now the seed can fill in the many bare areas, and the lime and fertilizer will actually get to the soil. We earned our vacation this week! Also thanks to my parents, we joined them for a lovely four-day stay on the Olympic Peninsula complete with yummy food, long walks, and some gorgeous views of Discovery Bay. #thankful #vacation . Longtime followers might recognize this week's artwork as the same stickers I used throughout last year's #bujo spreads. They are from #learningplayground. I was in a collage-y mood, and these stickers were just chillin' in my bottom drawer. Yay for using what I already have! . #bujobeauty #bujoinspire #bujocommunity #showmeyourplanner #habittracker #bulletjournaling #bulletjournallove #bulletjournalcommunity #planneraddict #handwriting #penmanship #springstickers via Instagram https://www.instagram.com/p/Bi8gAB0hyO7/

My view for the last four days has been gorgeous. The Man and I joined my parents and sister in Discovery Bay, WA, for a vacation. This is our second trip to the Puget Sound in a year, and we're completely in love with the area. Perfect weather, cool air, and calm water: just what we needed to relax and unwind. . #discoverybaywa #washingtonstate #pugetsound #pnw #pacificnorthwest #westcoastbestcoast #upperleftusa #porttownsendwa via Instagram https://www.instagram.com/p/BitH1WhBQ9K/

I completed my second #diamondpainting today. These pink roses took me about 4 hours to finish over the last two weeks. I took my time, used an inclined surface, and successfully prevented neck pain. While I like the image, I was not impressed with the quality of the canvas (not very sticky, creased in a few places), and many of the drills were misshapen, defective, or stuck together. I also prefer full drill patterns. For $6, this passed the time, but I am not going to rush out to have it framed. . #diamondpaintingdiy #5ddiamondpainting #paintwithdiamonds #crafts #hobbies #roses #pinkroses via Instagram https://www.instagram.com/p/BiQIllknF_S/

Got some crafting done, accomplished a few seasonal chores, and had my first (very mild) sunburn of the year.

We drove over to the coast just to have #chowderbowlnewportoregon for lunch. There were no other planned stops. After eating gallons of chowder, The Man pulled me into @sjcustomjewelers, partly so he could look at watches, and partly because the store sells Oregon sunstones (which I might be kind of in love with). They had a perfectly matched pair of peach oval sunstones set in white gold leverback settings. The stones were mined in Oregon and have a fine layer of schiller. My favorite stone in my favorite setting in a metal I can actually wear, and at a price I can afford: #takemymoney! The stones are fairly small, maybe a carat each, but in the sun they just light up and glow! #sunstone #sunstones #oregonsunstones #sunstoneearrings #leverbackearrings #oregongirl #oregonnative #latechristmaspresent #thanksmomanddad via Instagram https://www.instagram.com/p/Bh2sasGHY9a/

Week 14 in my 2018 #housewife #bulletjournal #planner. I hosted Easter for the second time ever, and it went really well thanks to my mom and mother-in-law (I provided the venue, cooked the ham, and did the cleaning, and they did most of the cooking). Gave myself an easy week after Easter, one of the perks of being a stay-at-home wife. Have I mentioned how much I love what I do? #bestjobever #notjustsayingthat .

Week 13 in my 2018 #housewife #bulletjournal #planner. Had a busy week in the run up to hosting Easter dinner. Being a housewife and hosting an event is stressful to me because the condition of the house is a direct reflection on my ability to do my job. I take pride in my clean, organized home, but feasts require a certain amount of "extra" that really make me reach higher than usual. Like cleaning the oven with elbow grease and baking soda. Thankfully I learned how to take my oven door off! Was still sore for two days... . Springtime means butterflies in this area! For this week's art, I applied some #zigcleancolor markers to #bristolpaper and mixed the color with a bit of water. Once that dried, I cut out the #butterflies using the @simonsaysstamp #leannabutterfly die. I bent the wings up just a bit and glued the centers to my page. Simple but colorful. . #bujo #bujobeauty #bujoinspire #bujocommunity #showmeyourplanner #habittracker #bulletjournaling #bulletjournallove #bulletjournalcommunity #planneraddict #handwriting #penmanship via Instagram https://www.instagram.com/p/BhIDVuBjDBH/

Week 12 in my 2018 #housewife #bulletjournal #planner. One year ago this week, I found out I had high cholesterol and was generally an unhealthy mess. I invested a ton of effort into myself and a healthy future, lost nearly forty pounds, and dropped all of my high numbers to normal or better. I didn't go on a diet or have an exercise program, just faithfully meal prepped to eliminate excuses and manage portions, and I removed all refined grains, added sugar, and most saturated fats. Here's to a much healthier me! . Loving my new extra fine #pilotfrixion pens and some new sticker sets from #stickerking. These #frog #stickers remind me of a particular aunt, and I knew they'd be perfect for late March. . #bujo #bujobeauty #bujoinspire #bujocommunity #showmeyourplanner #habittracker #bulletjournaling #bulletjournallove #bulletjournalcommunity #planneraddict #handwriting #penmanship #weightlossjourney #eatrealfood #healthyfood #mealprep #cleaneats via Instagram https://www.instagram.com/p/BgzYTlcjd8C/

I think I can officially say I know how to quill now. This card took a ton of effort and skill, plus some ability to play with long, skinny paper strips while avoiding a cat that just wants to "help." Quite pleased with the final result. Hope Dad likes it (the cash inside should help 😉). . Used @simonsaysstamp #circlesayings in #mementoink on white cardstock and @heroarts #envelopepattern in #versamark on @neenahpaper #desertstormcardstock. There's some #winkofstella on the frosting and strawberry. Quilling paper is from a bin under my craft table. I forget the rest of the details.

Great week including a painless dentist appointment (apparently that can be a thing--and no, I was not drugged), a fun day in the big city with Mom (we didn't get lost or stuck in traffic--and never used a map), and The Man and I completed a fun scavenger hunt that caused a perfect amount of head scratching and walking for a sunny March afternoon. Life is good. . I broke out every St. Patrick's Day stamp I have for this week's art: @lawnfawn #hatsofftoyou.

Decided that I needed an Easter/spring wreath for my front door. After finding unattractive and oddly colored pre-made wreaths at three different stores, I decided to make my own. Went more "spring" than "Easter" so I can leave it out longer, plus it will match the purple rhododendrons in front of the porch. Took less than an hour and under $30.

I made the #kraciepopincookin #tsukurou #okosamalunch kit today. This was a complicated kit that took me about half an hour to make. The candy flavors are all fruity and incredibly sweet even though they look pretty savory. The tempura shrimp was amazing! After forming the shrimp, I rolled it in a sort of #poprocks powder and then in water, so it sizzled! Did that five or six times to "deep fry" my shrimp. #ohjapan #candy #candykit #imadethis #iatethis #tasty #exceptthemeatballs #littleballsofregret via Instagram https://www.instagram.com/p/BgXsmFQBQOp/

Week 10 in my 2018 #housewife #bulletjournal #planner. Did a ton of research on bath towels this week. The hardest part of my purchasing decision was the color. While the Egyptian cotton makes me feel like I am being hug-dried by a giant, fluffy bunny, I'm not sure if I will love white. What color bath towels do you prefer? . Art this week was super easy. Used some stamp stickers (not real postage) on a bit of shiny gold cardstock.

New sewing project means new cat-proof needle storage so we don't get a repeat needle extraction surgery like last month. The cat is already mad that I won't let her chew on the corners of my pattern, play with the thread, or sit on the linen. She also can't sit in my lap while I stitch.

Week 3 in my 2018 #housewife #bulletjournal #planner. This week's short chore list is deceptive. Life as a housewife means I get pulled where I am needed, frequently without warning. Sometimes that means holding Mom's hand as she goes in for minor surgery. Sometimes it is snuggling on a cold, hard floor with a cat that needs love more than laundry needs tending. And sometimes it is sitting down for ten seconds with my #zigcleancolor #realbrushmarkers and watercoloring on #bristolpaper while my dinner cooks. @lawnfawn #loveyoualatte #versafine #smokeygrey #coffeeisgross #teaisbetterthancoffee #bujobeauty #minimalistbujo #showmeyourplanner #bujo #bujoinspire #bujocommunity #bulletjournaling #habittracker #bulletjournallove #bulletjournalcommunity #planneraddict #handwriting #penmanship #ilovemyjob #bestjobever via Instagram https://www.instagram.com/p/BeZprVRjDTe/

Hi, it's Annie with an update from the Cone of Shame. It has been a week since I tried to help Mommy with her sewing by eating her needle and thread. Since the vet had to open my intestine to retrieve the needle, I have to wear this dang collar for a few more days. My incision is healing well, and I have regained my fierce nature, but this soft chicken gruel called "wet food" is completely disgusting. I want my @orijenpetfood crunchies, and I want them now!

Week 1 in my 2018 #housewife #bulletjournal #planner. Is this a bullet journal or a planner or both? Started this year off sick--that's my excuse for being late posting this. Trying out a new style with a task list instead of daily lists, simplified my weekly habit trackers, and took out the color so I could focus on a doodle box instead. Lots of changes, and I miss my stickers, but minimalism is definitely more my style. This week's art is @simonsaysstamp #ornatebackground over masked numbers. Used #prismacolorpencils to fill in. #happynewyear2018 #bujobeauty #minimalistbujo #showmeyourplanner #bujo #bujoinspire #bujocommunity #bulletjournaling #habittracker #bulletjournallove #bulletjournalcommunity #planneraddict #handwriting #penmanship via Instagram http://ift.tt/2mymhqL

Annie here. Do not adjust your graphics settings, folks, things have gone pixelated. Mommy figured out how to turn an old cell phone into a webcam, so now she can spy on me 24/7. The motion detector alerts her whenever I move. I wasn't much into food or water for three days, so Mommy packed me off to the vet today. I got a smaller collar so I can reach food now! Also got some fluids and something to make me hungry. I have the munchies now. This new smaller collar is not my favorite, but it's way better than the old one. Time to put nose prints on everything!

An update from the Cone of Shame: I'm home. The humans helped me escape the vet, but they insist I must wear this infernal cone. Something about, "this is what happens when you eat Mommy's craft supplies and have to have them surgically removed." Pssh. Eating and drinking is tough still (stupid collar is in my way!), though I am a champ at using my pine pellet box. A long road to recovery, but at least I'm home. #annie #cat #catsofinstagram #korat #koratcat #coneofshame #coneofshameproblems via Instagram http://ift.tt/2CRFhqc

Hi, it's Annie again. Mommy was sewing something for Daddy yesterday, and she wouldn't let me help. When she turned her back, I ate her thread and needle. Mommy came back and was shocked! I was so good and didn't touch the pile of cut threads at all. But then Mommy got suspicious about her missing threaded needle, and I got to ride in the car to see the doctor. She took a picture of my guts, and the needle had gone all the way to my intestines. Tasty stuff! Except the doctor was worried it was poking holes all over in me, so I got to have emergency surgery at midnight. I had to spend the night with the nice veterinarian, but she says I can go home today. Mommy's wallet is a lot lighter now. That'll teach her to let me help with the sewing next time. #catrevenge #annie #catsofinstagram #catsurgery #catatemyhomework #badkitty #korat #koratcat #catxray #stupidcat #seriously #nothowiwantedtospendmymoney via Instagram http://ift.tt/2EsJSjo

How can a holiday that celebrates something so good be so stressful!? #idoittomyself Images from #freepik. #bujo #bujojunkies #bulletjournalcommunity #minimalistbujo #planner #planneraddict #plannercommunity #plannernerd #plannerlove #handwriting #penmanship #christmas #christmaslights via Instagram http://ift.tt/2ClDf1Q

Week 48 in my 2017 #housewife #bulletjournal. "Necessity is the mother of invention." Must be December because I am feeling pulled in every direction now. I have been working hard on Christmas crafts, and we went to our first holiday party of the year (four more to go!).

Week 47 in my #housewife #bulletjournal. Happy Thanksgiving! We survived a crazy week, enjoyed a lovely small holiday dinner with my parents, and shopped just for ourselves on Black Friday. Mostly because I hate shopping, but saving a ton of money makes up for some of that hate.

All decorated for Christmas! We are doing a white and silver theme this year. The mantle is my favorite part. The Man picked most of it out, and I did the manual labor. #teamwork #christmasiscoming #holidaydecorating #homedecor #whiteandsilver #whiteandsilverchristmas #whiteandsilverdecor #christmasdecorations #blackfridaydecorating via Instagram http://ift.tt/2n22se8

Week 46 in my 2017 #housewife #bulletjournal. "I love and approve of myself." Yay for fall weather! Nay to blowing, raking, scooping, bagging, and binning leaves for hours every week. Extra nay to living in a #treecityusa where I can't cut down my four stupid maple trees so I don't have to deal with this issue each year. #rant #ihateyardwork #atleastitisntsummer Images from #freepik. #bulletjournal #bulletjournaling #bulletjournalcommunity #bulletjournallove #bulletjournaljunkies #bujo #bujojunkies #bujocommunity #bujolove #bujoinspire #wearebujo #planner #planneraddict #plannercommunity #handwriting #penmanship #list #housewifelife #rainbow #leaves #owls via Instagram http://ift.tt/2A4ykBX

Week 45 in my #housewife #bulletjournal. My birthday was Nov. 3, but I had Halloween stickers for last week's #bujo page. This week I get my cake! Had a week full of crazy chores like rebinding an oversized king quilt, writing and posting my annual blog year retrospective (link in profile), and making a ton of Christmas cards. Have 50 cards done with about 20 to go. #christmasiscomingtoofast Images from #freepik. #bulletjournal #bulletjournaling #bulletjournalcommunity #bulletjournallove #bulletjournaljunkies #bujojunkies #bujocommunity #bujolove #bujoinspire #wearebujo #planner #planneraddict #plannercommunity #handwriting #penmanship #list #housewifelife #rainbow #birthday #birthdaycake via Instagram http://ift.tt/2zUVmh9

Week 44 in my 2017 #housewife #bulletbinder. This week was busy! Between errands, chores, seasonal tasks, and celebrating a holiday and my birthday, I am exhausted. Started working on Christmas cards: trying to stay ahead of the game this year! #halloween images from #freepik. #bulletjournal #bulletjournaling #bulletjournalcommunity #bulletjournallove #bulletjournaljunkies #bujo #bujojunkies #bujocommunity #bujolove #bujoinspire #wearebujo #planner #planneraddict #plannercommunity #handwriting #penmanship #list #housewifelife #rainbow #happyhalloween via Instagram http://ift.tt/2zuWIfx

Blog Year Retrospective #12

If you had told me last year what my life would be like over the next twelve months, I would have fainted. Just keeled over, out cold. But there was no voice from the future, no glimmer in the crystal ball to prepare me for the heartache I would experience.

Week 43 in my #housewife #bulletbinder. "I trust myself and know my inner wisdom is my best guide." Yeah, I do know me. Just don't ask me to explain myself. 🤔 Had a great week visiting with my sister who was home on leave. We enjoyed crafting time, a big puzzle, and lots of good food. Also, the #leaves here in the #willamettevalley? #breathtaking!

Week 42 in my 2017 #housewife #bulletbinder. "Our marriage is worth celebrating!" Yay for surviving eight years with this self-inflicted wound called a marriage!

Made this card to thank a friend for taking care of our cat while we went on vacation. All stamps, dies, and colored paper are from @lawnfawn. The white paper is from @hp, and the embossing folder is by @wermemorykeepers. Cat colored using @copic_official markers. Design is based on a card given to me in 1992 from my aunt. #crazycatlady #card #handmadecard #lawnfawn #watercolorpaper #stitchedhillsideborders #meowyoudoin #wonderfulwindow #stitchedsquares #thankmew #lawnfawncard #catsonquilts via Instagram http://ift.tt/2yFcUN3

Grandma told me to feed you until you married me. Here I am, eight years later, married, and still feeding you. Sometimes it's pizza, and sometimes it's punchlines, but it's always amazing with you there. Here's to eight years of marriage and over 8,000 meals together. Happy anniversary! #happyanniversary #oct172009 #oct17 #8thanniversary #eighthanniversary #thewaytoamansheartisthroughhisstomach #grandmasarealwaysright #fall #fallleaves #leaves #church #catholicchurch #catholicwedding #iloveyou via Instagram http://ift.tt/2yp0OaX
