Music Monday: Amos Lee

An oldie but a goodie. 
Because, PS, I am going to see him LIVE this summer and you better believe I am going to be fangirling all over the place.

California in the twenty fifteen: orchards

My in-laws live in Orchard City (not actually a place, I made that up, ok people).
The entire time we were visiting them, it was killing me to drive past orchard after orchard of beautiful blooming trees. Thankfully I have a sweet  husband who made sure we made a pit stop to run around in the trees.









does it freak anyone else out that they keep hives right by the road??












Now I'm back in the frozen tundra waiting for spring to show up here...

Music Monday: Mumford and Sons

What the what? 
Just after we thought they were done touring and weren't going to be popping out another album any time soon if ever... BAM. They're back with a new album and a new sound... not too shabby! 
Can't wait to hear the rest.

Christmas at the Tramp Casa


One of the reasons that I l.o.v.e Christmas season is all of the lights -they make things so sparkly and warm and cozy! 
First married Christmas. I'm a fan.






one of my favorite hand-me-downs from my grandma's Precious Moments collection.


We can see who the favorite is around here...

Loving these guys.
Yay, YouTube! 
Makes me miss all my sibs and road trips with my broskis singing at the top of our lungs.

Love: brother edition

my poopy pants brother decided to move.
we have had a lot of good times.
conferences. concerts. camping.
road trips. airplanes. subways.
iron bladder competitions (I won, duh).
music nerd noise.
coffee nerd noise.
hours and hours of youth group shenanigans.
life isn't the same around these parts, so hurry back!
