Christmas Photos

At Christmas, we had a full house of family gathered.  It was the first time Riley understood how to unwrap presents, even if he didn’t understand a whole lot besides that.  He learned who Santa is (and now anyone with a beard and dressed in red is Santa) and received more Thomas the Tank Engine...
The Basilisk in the Garage - Actual Size May Vary

The Basilisk in the Garage – Actual Size May Vary

Phobia: def. An extreme or irrational fear of or aversion to something.  Emphasis on extreme and irrational.  Though I try to keep it hidden, many of you know I have a phobia of snakes (Ophidiophobia).  I’m not afraid of snakes – I’m terrified of them in a violently irrational way.  I’ve started crying in pet stores....

On House and Home

Over the weekend, a number of furniture stores were having large sales in celebration of Tennessee tax free weekend. Now, I don’t think furniture is on the list of eligible products, but as part of the whole weekend sales event chaos, all of the stores we visited were either paying the tax on all items...

The Comedy of Errors

Andy and I had date night last Saturday and for once it didn’t involve the usual dinner at a restaurant or occasional movie theater outing.  Trying to think a little outside the box for once, we packed up a picnic (baguette, cheddar and Port Salut cheeses, salami, ham, hummus, and bagel chips) and headed for...

New Posts Coming Soon… I Swear

Just to get my darling Father off my back, I promise there will be blog posts soon.  Bastille Day, 4th of July and my dad’s visit, and Personal Training Update will all be coming soon (this weekend in all likelihood).  But for now, just enjoy these cute pictures of Riley playing on his kiddie pool....

Knoxville Pictures

Finally we’ve settled in enough to have a little fun.  It took almost a month, but after all that time we have finally been able to use our evenings, weekends, and my time off work to explore and enjoy ourselves.  The following photos are ones we have taken in the last few weeks at three...

The House

Finally! Pictures of the house are up!  Somehow the pictures of the dining room didn’t quite make it in there, but everything else is.  The house isn’t painted yet and we’re still missing a few key pieces of furniture, not to mention some of the art work has yet to make it onto the walls....

The First of Many Upcoming Posts – Buying the House

There’s been so much going on in the last month its hard to know where to start.  Andy matched.  We were thrilled.  Birds chirped, choirs of angels sang, the stars aligned, and we got our first choice.  Literally the day after Match Day, we were in the car driving up to Knoxville to look at...

We’ve Moved!

Well, it’s been a few days and we’re officially living in Knoxville now! We’ve moved all our stuff in and are about 75% unpacked already (after only 4 days). We still have no internet, though we’re working on it, so this post will be short. We are officially homeowners now and love, love, love our...

Moving

We’re moving to Knoxville in a week so things are super, super busy around here! We bought a house and have had so much to do to prepare for moving out of here and into the new house. Hopefully, once we’re all packed up and settled into the new house I can get back to...

And the Verdict is…

UT Knoxville!  Andy got his first choice.  I am beyond words excited to be so close to my best friend, live in a town I’m already fairly familiar with, be only 2.5 hours away from many of our close friends, and in a city with an affordable cost of living!  We will start the housing...

Knoxville

Right after we returned from the family reunion, interview season was upon us.  In order to obtain a residency, you have to apply to a number of different programs.  Of the programs to which you apply, a percentage of those will send you requests to interview.  Over the last few weeks, we have started receiving...
