Kieklak Garden 2015

 photo kieklak garden 2015_zps4jmrwxwm.pngYou might remember my limited success (i.e. compete failure) with gardening last year. That was partly due to my own laziness and partly to a severe lack of planning. It was essentially an afterthought one weekend in May. Continue reading

I’ve been a little behind on these weekly updates, but I’m going to try to back track now and squeeze three four weeks worth into this post since a lot has happened lately. I’m ditching my questionnaire format and I’ll just try to explain everything the best I know how! Continue reading

A {Subtle} Kitchen Makeover

Hello, dear readers! Sorry I’ve been pretty MIA this month, but this spring has been a doozie. I’ve travelled a lot (you might have heard that my sweet Grandmother Dorothy passed away a few weeks ago), and I’ve been working hard on that list of goals for 2015.

We moved into our first house, “The Krampy Shanty”, last July and with the help of our moms, we planted some flowers out front to add to our curbside appeal. You can check out those two posts here and here.

Since it was so late in the season, we didn’t expect to see many blooms, but we were pleasantly surprised by several of the plants. To view some of the photos of our flowers from the end of the summer, click here. Continue reading

If you notice that my symptoms don’t quite line up with your timeline, don’t worry! Apparently, twin pregnancies track about 6 weeks ahead of singleton pregnancies with respect to symptoms and measurements. At least that’s what my doctor says!
