Puppies, Pillows, & Stuff to Stitch

I have finally settled into my little role as "housewife" here in my new home. Its been a little odd not getting up to go to a "real" job everyday, but I am learning to relax and enjoy! I have time now (and a willing taste tester- thanks Geoff) to try all the Rachael Ray recipes I've had marked in her cookbook forever... so far, she has yet to steer us wrong! And I love having time to clean and decorate! And there really is something so satisfyingly simple about spending a Sunday outside with your honey working in the yard. So, in the interest of embracing homey-goodness, here are a few projects and books I want to delve into. I will, of course, share pics when I've completed something. Happy Sunday!
