High Tide

This picture.

Final in this calendar series. Additionally, it's my least favorite. Too muddy. No one guessed this picture, but here is the good news: if you guessed at all, I'm sending you a calendar! Yay for you! Yay for us! Yay for everyone!

I know it's not the last illustration but...

You're looking at Dewalt's newest Drill Competition Champion at Home Depot. Fastest Dude to drill 5 screws in a row. Hands off Ladies...this handyman is taken. Additionally, he did NOT screw his finger into the board, as did another contestant.

Calendar Contest

We're feeling in the Holiday spirit! If you guess which image has been selected from below for the final piece of calendar art by 8am CST on Monday morning, I will send you three calendars in the mail to share with your lovely friends, and a silly note from me and Rach. (This is not chronological, so could be for any month of the year). Guess in the comments section: illustrated image will be up on Monday.

Also, if a friend indicates you've shared our blog with calendar for you
(limit one each person, let's not go overboard)!

I couldn't sleep last night.

Through a Dark Mirror, Dimly


My husband will tell you that I am my gender’s biggest critic.  I cringe at the thought of being swallowed into women’s events: at being surrounded by mindless prattle. Don’t get me wrong: I often enjoy myself once there, and am guilty of “loving her shoes”, but in general, the thought of entering into it is painful. Lots of...fluff.  The longer I am on this planet, the more I realize that I share my father’s loathe of small talk.  And, I realize that while some of my rough edges have gotten shaved off by life, in many ways I have become sharper. Not in the intellectual sense.

DIY: Memory Jars

Last year, I was looking to create gifts for my family that were meaningful and wouldn't break the bank. I also was itching to get crafty! These memory jars were so much fun to do and pretty well-received and appreciated. They just took a little more time than finding that video game on your bro's wish list. (Sorry, Paul.) ;)

Chi-Town Love.

Rachel sent this to me today. I'm betting it sings to you in the morning.

Favorite Andrew Bird song? This is mine.

A little love-

RM and KM

Night Lights


I like looking out the windows while trapped inside at work. Seeing the sun setting and knowing I will soon be both entering and leaving work in darkness... well, scenes like these are a comfort. They are a consolation prize that actually mean something to me.

Real thoughts after the jump...
