Election Aftermath

I don’t even know what to say, I have been trying to think of a way that this is some sort of joke or that there will be some scandalous re-count and Trump will be sent packing. There was no question for me that I would never vote for him, no matter what, and I thought that was the majority opinion. I almost feel like the media paved the way for him to win by misleading us that Hillary was the obvious winner so there are people out there that voted for the 3rd party or didn’t vote at all that might have, had they known this was going to happen.

Summers over and school has just begun!

I can’t believe the summer is over! I just dropped my oldest off on her first day of first grade and even though it feels like summer shouldn’t be over I am feeling ready for school to begin!

We had a packed summer full of camping, working on the house, being lazy and getting our craft on. I of course didn’t write about any of it but now I’m feeling like sitting down and getting to it!

Hope you all had a great summer! Kind of excited for sweater and boot weather!

Last night was “Tuesday Night” i.e. date night. We have forever had Tuesday’s set up to be our night to spend time with each other. Sometimes we actually go out or just stay home and play cards or watch a movie (which we try not to turn the TV on since that is the usual thing we do to relax after the kids go to be). I highly suggest to any couple that they should pick a night to be date night, this started before we were married when we worked opposite schedules so “Tuesday Night” was VERY important!

Pilfering is not cool

Last night my car got rifled through. Not cool Portland, not cool.

I feel lucky that it seems nothing actually got stolen but my privacy feels violated and it just brings back old memories of when this has happened before. I don’t know if its just me or if this happens to lots of people but in my time of owning a car (since I was 17) I have had my car stolen twice and broken into probably ten times. Sometimes it seems like I must have left my car unlocked and others the window was smashed in. Continue reading

A little bit about me

Hello!

I’m Sarah, I thought that I would introduce myself for people that don’t already know me. I live in Portland Oregon and have my whole life. I have been married to my best friend Mike since 2007, we started dating when we were 18/19 and have been together ever since. We have three great kids, Lilly who is energetic and so sweet is four and a half. Mia, who currently is mid her terrible twos and shows it but is also very fun is two and a half. Lastly we have my amazing baby Carver! he is 9 months old and is the best babe ever!

My house is a bit wild, with kids every where, stuff everywhere, a big dog, a fluffy cat and usually some sort of project or craft that I am attempting to do taking over part of the kitchen. I love to cook, garden, read, crochet, sew, make jewelry, I’m newly taking a ceramics class and am pretty much interested in any sort of craft. I love traveling around Portland and have my favorite places to go but am also trying to expand my repertoire (said in fancy accent) and try some new stuff.

I’ve been interested in starting a blog for a while but have been busy having babies, now that they are a bit older I’m thinking I might be able to get it together. Plus I have a lot of fun doing what we do and would love to inspire others to get creative too!

That’s it for now but I’m sure there’s more!
