It's that cool and creepy time of year again, and Wendy and I couldn't be happier. With the changing of the seasons and arrival of beautiful fall foliage, October is our favorite month of the year. But for all October has to offer, I'd be remiss if I didn't say...

As we're still gathering our collective breaths from yesterday's arrival of Hurricane Sandy, we can't get too caught up on the semi disaster area that is our neighborhood. Why you ask? Because it's Pinterest Challenge time, Fall Edition.  Okay, okay, we're still going to be updating our Live Blogging post of...

Click to view latest update - Tuesday, October 30 at 4:30 PM  This is it, Hurricane Sandy is upon us. They've been calling this a historic and massive storm, and to not be fooled by its category 1 classification. We're starting to see what this is all about as the rain...

Here's a live look at hurricane Sandy from the front window of our house. Image automatically updates.Since moving into our house in January 2003 we've experienced many extreme weather events including several major blizzards (each of which was called "perhaps the storm of the century"), a few hurricanes, a derecho (yep,...

As you already know, simply by the fact that this blog exists, Wendy and I are more or less obsessed with DIY. Whether it's building a few shelves for our kitchen, or going total overkill on our tiny entry vestibule/front doors/French doors/etc, we truly feel that we can do just...

Halloween just so happens to be my all time favorite holiday, even inching out Christmas. Perhaps it's because I'm not pulling my hair out with thousands of other shoppers in pursuit of the perfect gift, or it may also be due largely to the fact that we don't have to deal with...

Wendy and I consider ourselves rather fortunate to live in the city we call home. In our eyes, there are so many different factors that make Old Town Alexandria special, but one of the items that we enjoy, and almost anyone who has enjoyed Old Town can agree with, the...

Wendy and I have long dreamed of an intimate wine bar area somewhere in our house. While I have grand plans for a hidden and climate controlled wine storage area and tasting bar in the basement (many years down the road), the small area we've created in the kitchen will...

In case you didn't see our post last week, we had our copper downspout ripped off of our house...literally. Unbeknownst to us, a thief showed up in the middle of the night and snatched our copper downspout in order to take it to a scrap metal yard. At about $6 per pound,...

I hope you'll forgive me for that bad early 2000's sitcom reference, but today we're talking ravens. Specifically, the avian Halloween decorations adorning the outside of our home. Each year we throw a costume party to celebrate my favorite holiday of the year. Last year I dressed up as Tippi Hedren's...

We have big news today, and much happier news than that of yesterday's gutter downspout theft! After roughly two months since we began our little kitchen upgrade with a fresh coat of paint, and after our kitchen upgrades seemingly spiraled out of control and turned into a major overhaul, we've...

Today's post is a little unique, primarily because today's post is actually going to be two posts. One from my perspective, and one from Alex's perspective. We both wrote the posts without the other knowing, so we figured we should go ahead and just share both of them. We hope...

Last month Wendy and I embarked on a whirlwind tour of Budapest, Vienna, and Prague in celebration of our 10th wedding anniversary. If you missed the first two posts on Budapest or Vienna, you should jump back to take a look at the wonderfully enjoyable time we were having. The...

It's a moment I've long been waiting for. Ever since we began our quick kitchen makeover earlier this summer, I've been excited for the day that I could accessorize the new shelves we planned to build above the wine bar. Now that the shelves have been built, painted and hung,...
