PBS Might be the Greatest Channel… Ever

Today is a snow day. It’s been coming down nonstop all day and we’ve been loving it. We celebrated while watching PBS and eating a cozy lunch on the couch. Wait until you see what we watched. I’ll give you a hint…

Do you recognize that hand and painting?

I mean, we all grew up with this show.

Can you guess?

Okay okay, I’ll tell you…

It’s flipping Bob Ross!! Andrew and I looked at each other, faces alight, and squealed at the same time. Not. Even. Joking. We watched and marveled at his typical Bob Ross jargon, painting skills, and general splendor.

My favorite part (other than his fro)?

Happy little trees!

Happy heart!  Tonight the giveaway is officially closed. I’ll announce the winner on Monday! Hopefully by then I’ll be able to get out of our drive way, through the snow and to Panacea to pick up the coffee! Can’t wait!

Our official site is live!

Oh, my goodness! I’ve been harboring this secret for far too long! It’s finally time to tell you guys, fox and owl is finally live!

Our official .com site is! Yes, I know I’m posting this at 3:45 in the morning and it’s totally Black Friday… but am I going shopping?


Am I up right now because I want to go shopping?


I’m merely still up because Andrew and I decided to bite the bullet and hit it tonight after dinner and here I am! Announcing that we’re live! So, do me a favor


Give us feedback! Let us know, do you dig the site? Do you like the layout? Is it too text heavy? Hook us up with your thoughts!

Holy Cuss! We’re so excited! We’re going to see the Punch Brothers tonight at
Pisgah Brewing Co! Leslie and Ryan turned us onto them during one of our weekly hangs at their house. I’ve never been to the Pisgah Brewing Co but, I’m so jazzed about checking out some micro-brews!

In the meantime I have a wee kitten cat that has somehow managed to climb up my shoe and into my pant leg. How is that even possible?

I think… possibly…. Angus is my favorite thing ever. Short of Andrew.

I’ve always liked yoga but it’s been forever since I’ve done it! With the whole getting married and moving into a place and switching jobs… I lost my routine. Andrew was asking me about it and so I looked up some stuff online and found my favorite videos again! So excited!

We watched a couple sequences and tried a few poses. He looked at me and said, “Okay I need a yoga mat.”


I’m so jazzed! Now we can do yoga together and keep in shape! Here is one of my favorite yoga flows. Enjoy!

Tuesday, why do you feel like Monday?

Oh, that’s right. It’s because of a super gnarley Monday, a late bedtime, and a crying kitten all night. Of course.

Man I’m tired! But I’m also really jazzed because two of our friends are coming for dinner tonight and I CAN’T WAIT! Other than family and very very very close friends that are practically family, this is the first pair of friends to come visit and have dinner. As of now we only have two chairs at our table so, we’re going to:
a) have a carpet picnic
b) go up in the field behind the house

Either way we’re making (what we consider) our signature dish and they are bringing wine and the dessert. Hooray!

I also found yet another project for us. It involves scrap wood, which we happen to have a lot of.

Whoa, huge picture and no way to fix it. Super, wordpress. So, what do you think? You dig? Cause, we do!

My birthday is coming up

My wee birthday is on Friday Saturday the 14th, I’ll be 24! I’m working on a 25 things to do before I’m 25 goal list. I think I may make a wee journal specifically for this little project! I love that the deadline is Friday, that makes me work faster and better.

I’ve been promising an update and haven’t done it and I’m sooo sorry! Since we’ve been back from honeymoon things have been super crazy and busy. I’ve been organizing rooms and throwing things away/sorting to give away, painting things and making them lovely, cleaning, laundry, etc. I just got my Brother sewing machine for the sewing class and I’m beyond excited to learn all about it and get started.

I have a meeting in about 20 minutes and I have some marketing work to do tonight but I’m going to post some photos of things we’ve been sprucing and photos from our honeymoon. Thanks for being patient!

Honeymoon Announcement

We have decided on Savannah Georgia! I’ve never been there but Andrew has spent a little time there. I am soooo excited! We’ll be down there for about a week and we’ll come home through Charleston, SC – my favorite city in the entire world – because A hasn’t spent much time there and I want to show him around. I swear, Charleston is like coming home before you get home! Wonderful!

I can’t wait to really see…

This lovely fountain

This Spanish Moss – I have a special attachment to it because my hair always looks like it in humid situations. I’m looking for new frizz control… any suggestions?

These lovely doorways – taking photos of doorways in cities is one of my favorites! Maybe there should be a photo series?

And of course, eating here. I love Paula Deen and I don’t think I get enough butter in my life!

We’re really excited. Thinking we’ll leave tomorrow and be gone for about a week! First time trying out – any ideas of where we can get good deals on hotels? Let me know in the comment section! Whew, I’m off to pack! Woohoo!

Oh, we are moving in this weekend!

It’s so nice to finally have our own lovely space! We have had the most wonderful support from our family and friends! So many great things have been donated to us – table and chairs & a couch. We’re just in the process of finding creative ways to store things in our kitchen – any creative storage suggestions? We need them! I’ll have pictures posted soon, we don’t have internet at our house yet so we’re going to random places to find it.

Happy weekend!
