Adventures in Gardening

Last year I decided that since becoming a new homeowner, it was time to start a garden. Because that’s what you do when you have a house, right? Well I had these grand dreams and expectations of planting organic tomatoes, bell peppers, jalepenos, and other veggies, harvesting them throughout the season, and then having a… Read more »

Top Questions About Fostering

  Mike and I have been fostering dogs (and a few kittens here and there) for a little over three years now. And in that time, we have had a grand total of 27 fur babies come through our doors. Two of them ended up as “foster fails” and became full-time members of the Affourtit… Read more »

The Comeback Tour

Blogging and I have had a love-hate relationship over the past few years–I don’t think that’s hard to see. I used to love blogging. It was my creative outlet and how I shared my love of design, DIY, and adventure with the world. But then something changed and it wasn’t fun any more. Blogging started… Read more »

Fostering

The Foster (Fail) Life – Meet Quinn!

It’s been a while since I’ve posted about how we foster dogs throughout the year. In fact, my last post about it was about how we foster-failed with Harvey and ended up adopting him as a full time fur-kid. Well, a lot has happened since then! There have been many more tails and furballs to… Read more »

DIY Stone Firepit

There’s nothing more summery than a good old campfire if you ask me. So many memorable nights and great conversations happened around a campfire that we just knew we needed to create one ASAP. Even before we got around to doing other (probably more important) things. Are you starting to notice a pattern with our… Read more »

The Yellow Brick House | DIY Patio Table

  If you follow me on Instagram, you probably saw that Mike and I were at it again with home projects this weekend. This time, I just couldn’t stand to finish the weekend without having a patio table to enjoy the nice weather we had. First, I looked at places like Target, Home Depot, Lowes,… Read more »

Home Sweet Home

We’re home owners!!! Mike and I have had quite the busy beginning to 2014! Mike started a new position in his company, my company sent us to Key West, and the icing on the cake? We just closed on an adorable little ranch house! We lovingly refer to it as the Yellow Brick House and… Read more »

Key West | As Told By Instagram

Let’s not even get into how long it’s been since I last blogged. Let’s just let that one slide… but unless I explain a little background to this post, you might be thinking “What the heck, when did you go to Key West?” Well, I shall tell you.

One Little Word for 2014

Last year I really enjoyed reading about Elise’s “one little word” theme for 2013 and decided to join in this year. For our word, Mike and I decided that “prudent” was a perfect theme for what we want to focus on in 2014.

We mailed our Christmas cards yesterday so I figured it was okay to blog about it since most of them have probably made it to their mailboxes by now. I think it’s going to be a new challenge every year to out-do the previous year. Last year I designed simple cards with a wedding photo…. Read more »
