a little more about us...

HE: an engineer (for Sharpie) who loves to brew beer (his fav of the moment is IPA), BBQ (ribs are his specialty), & fix up old cars (he's got a red '68 chevelle that he especially likes to tinker with.) 
SHE: a graphic designer (freelance) who loves to bake (as healthy as possible but sometimes a girl just needs chocolate or cool whip or both), decorate (as inexpensively as possible), & make stuff (jewelry, paintings, ceramics or whatever has her attention at the moment.) 
THEY: met in college at the University of WI-Eau Claire, dated for 5 years and married in Vegas in June 2003. They moved to Knoxville, TN 3 years later where they currently live with their 3 (super naughty but super cute) pound pups.
We started this blog several years ago to keep family and friends in the loop after we moved to Knoxville. And it's turned into an outlet to share everything from gluten free cookie recipes to DIY lamp makeovers. We love hearing from you. If you leave comments or questions, we do our very best to get back to you. If you'd like to contact us about advertising, collaborating, or just to say "hi," shoot us an email at
