This last Thanksgiving, I successfully roasted my first turkey! It was a huge thing, 14 pounds I believe... for just a party of three. A little over the top, but a huge accomplishment in my book. About a week ago Jordan and I went grocery shopping and I picked up... Continue reading

Another fun evening of cooking for me! I took a break from my crocheting and decided to spend a good hour in the kitchen for fun (could've been done faster, I bet, if I would've stopped texting), cooking up Steak Sandwiches for last night's dinner (and quite a few left... Continue reading

Last night Jordan and I went out for the night. We did a little light shopping, we went to Build a Bear for the little one we're expecting in the summer, and we went out to eat at Olive Garden. I ordered an entree, but I definitely filled up on... Continue reading

Jordan and I went on an extra special date Thursday night! The main part of the date was to go to Build-A-Bear to create a best friend for Bean! For those just tuning in, Bean is the baby Jordan and I are expecting this summer. We had so much fun!... Continue reading

If you are interested in purchasing this scarf, I would sell it for $12 + $5 shipping anywhere in the US. Contact me via email at jerricajaneen@gmail.com Here's a photo to show... Continue reading

Everyone has either heard of Pinterest, or is obsessed with Pinterest. I find it hard to admit that I'm 'obsessed', but I guess I do spend all my moments of boredom scrolling through the Popular pins. If my assumption is wrong, and you haven't heard of Pinterest, stay away or... Continue reading

Jordan and I planned for special at-home date Tuesday night! At first he decided that I wouldn't have to make any dinner, as he would pick something up on the way home along with snacks to devour during a Netflix movie. Well, about halfway through the day I changed the... Continue reading

Jordan and I live in a small-ish apartment. I have a hard time saying tiny or small, because I personally think we could have ended up living in a much smaller space, and there are many other couples out there (and larger quantities of people) living in smaller spaces than... Continue reading

Another yummy meal made for the husband two nights ago. Jordan and I are big fans of the way this recipe turned out, also! It was so delicious, we had a couple more bowls as our snack before bed! Here is my recipe: Sour Cream Noodle Bake Ingredients: - 1... Continue reading

Are you actually telling me I bought fabric & completed the project it was intended for... all in the same day? This never happens; the first half of that sentence hardly happens. I have stacks of long forgotten fabric that prove it. As for this receiving blanket I made... can... Continue reading

Statement sunglasses will continue their reign through Spring 2013. Bold sunglasses were seen all over the Spring 2013 runway collections, each one brighter and more fabulous than the last. Add several pairs to your collection to rock out when the snow melts! Here are some that I have my eyes... Continue reading

I put another yummy meal in the crock pot yesterday for last night's dinner! We recently went grocery shopping, and I chose to buy brown rice (I've only been used to eating white rice with various Filipino meals). As soon as I put it into the cart, I knew I... Continue reading

Last night I made two Urban Outfitters - inspired receiving blankets. I say that because these blankets are far from the typical pale blue or pink wraps you usually see when shopping for baby. These boast a loud, trendy tribal pattern with bright jade edging. For sale! The Tribal Receiving... Continue reading

I sat down and finished up a second Book of Cards today using my DIY tutorial I posted earlier. This time around I used a large stack of greeting cards I had collected from our engagement & my bridal showers. It's nice to have these items in order, and have... Continue reading

If you're like me (a slight hoarder), you have greeting cards collected from various holidays and occasions. For me, I have Christmas cards that friends have sent me in the past collected, and definitely a stack of birthday cards stored somewhere. You can finally put those hidden collections into better...

I had a couple unexpected shopping dates today: my husband and my brother in law. The best part was that my brother in law was actually the one who asked me if I was up for some shopping! It was needless to ask :) We went to one store for... Continue reading

Jordan is off work until Saturday, so we had the time this morning to grocery shop, drop off donations and get lunch! It is a chilly day but I can't help but go sleeveless every once in a while (under a coat, of course). I'm still hiding that baby bump!... Continue reading

During the car ride to Galesburg yesterday, I was reading the newest issue of Seventeen magazine. I came across this shirt in the issue (left). Since the trip was specifically for a day of thrifting, I made sure to buy a cheap blouse that I could reconstruct (shown right)! Do... Continue reading

This post will be a little more intimate than I am used to sharing. I love thrifting; this you know. What you don't know is how much money I spend, and on what. I'll feel a little exposed, but I really want to share this. After today's thrifting adventure, I... Continue reading

I've had this craft project in the line up for awhile. I found the perfect opportunity to put it together as I've found the perfect spot to place the framed branches in the nursery we have been preparing! I received the frame from my grandmother early in the fall, before... Continue reading

Jordan and I have been working hard to get the nursey ready. I'm about halfway through the pregnancy, and I can't wait to just have it all perfect & ready for our baby! The now-nursery was previously my craft room, so it was a challenge going through items for donations... Continue reading

Today I spent a lot of time with my dad's family, as today was the annual butchering day (long, hard day of work, but I get a full freezer to show for it)! Some of the ladies were talking about how much they enjoyed cooking meals with their spouses. It... Continue reading
