Brett Gets a New Car: The NeuConcept-Mobile


When we polled you on this site about what we should buy first after the wedding, most of you said that Brett should get a new car. Well, he finally did. It’s a sleek, sporty black Infinity G35. And most of you will be surprised to know that it is only slightly used (although he […]

Rainbows rock on!


8910 8895 I love rainbows. They are so amazing to me every time I see them. What a cool phenomenon…you can explain to me the science of a rainbow to me hundreds of times, but it will still never take away the magic. My eyes are glued to the beautiful translucent colors until the last […]

Snow Day!


9643 Only in St. Louis…winter was ushered in with a bang during the last day of November. Our weather went from mid-60’s to freezing in a matter of hours; snow and sleet hammered the entire state of Missouri. For me, I had a day and a half off work (thank you, NAED!). I am grateful […]

The New Baby Boomer Era

So in honor of the poopy diapers, I thought I’d post a few pics of a recent gathering with three little cuties. (I managed to overcome my child-avoiding tendencies for […]
