We started this blog in the summer of 2008 mostly for family and friends after we surprised them by running off to Canada to elope. Then we did our best to allow them to keep tabs on our 4,000+ mile road trip honeymoon. Since then we’ve each tried to blog more in this public space than our old friends-only online journals. We talk about being a couple married ladies raising a teenage boy, our crazy blended Brady Bunch family of pets, buying our first home, gardening, cooking badass vegetarian food, and so on and so forth.
In January of 2011, we challenged ourselves to eat on $5/person/day without resorting to the conventional “cheap food” traps, like ramen or 99 cent fast food meals. We made a bunch of delicious, cheap, relatively healthy food and tracked every penny. You can see all of the posts related to this project here.
CAST OF CHARACTERS
KRISTA (on our honeymoon in Arizona)
JESS (on our honeymoon in West Virginia)
LEVI (wearing his old Jambi t-shirt)
Okay, LEVI is actually taller than us both and in high school. Pictured here on our 2010 spring trip to NYC.
CASH, our needy and cold Italian Greyhound. He loves us, but he’d rather live near the equator.
CLEMENTINE, our “watch out or she’ll attempt accidental suicide by chocolate” Chihuahua. Cutest dog in the PNW.
JIMMY RABIES, our handsome tuxedo cat. He takes no shit, so watch out or he’ll pee on your bed.
ELSA, our adorable little Bengal. She’s not exactly the brightest bulb in the box, and it is endlessly amusing.
One of now two hives. We never did quite settle on names.
Pepper Walker, our barred Plymouth rock.
Ramona Rickettes. Intended to be a welsummer but we think we got a speckled sussex.
Lenora Frigid, our curious white leghorn.
Cry-Baby Walker, our buff orpington.
And last but not least, little Hatchet-Face, our runty little Easter Egger who battled back to health from a mysterious illness.
