Surfing Sunday 12.24

Merry Christmas Eve! 97% of the presents are wrapped, 50% of the house is clean, and I have 0% motivation to do anything other than snuggle on the couch and watch Christmas movies. Annie just spent the last 20 minutes telling me how sad she is that it’s already Christmas Eve because that means, “Christmas…

Eleven/Fifteen

Mike and I didn’t do anything big for our tenth wedding anniversary last year due to a variety of factors, but we swore we’d make up for it this year. After having a ridiculously busy fall, we desperately needed to get away for a few days, just the two of us. With our anniversary falling…

Surfing Sunday 12.17

I am writing this one in advance because Mike and I are away for our anniversary weekend! We’re staying at the historic Mission Inn in Riverside, California, which is famous for its amazing holiday light display. I love this time of year and I’m so glad we got married in December when everyone is feeling happy…

From Us To You

It’s time for our Sixth Annual $250 Amazon.com giveaway! Wow, six years already. Dang! 2017 was the longest/shortest year ever. I feel like the year flew by, but when I think about things that happened in, say, March, it feels like a million years ago. We Spohrs had a lot of highs and lows this…

The fires continue to rage here in Southern California. The fire closest to us, the Thomas Fire, is the largest, with over 155,000 acres burning or burned. The fire’s progress in our direction has been halted. It’s hard to say that I feel “lucky” for that, although I do, because so many others are threatened…

We’re Okay

I wish I had something better to write about (well, I do, we’ve had lots of fun stuff going on), but I am consumed with worry over the out-of-control wildfires that are ravaging my beloved Southern California. We are safe. We can see the smoke and flames from the Thomas Fire, which is scary, but…

Surfing Sunday 12.03

Writing this one in advance because I’m on a girls’ weekend! I put up our Christmas lights this week (with some help from my dad, thanks Dad!) and we finally put our Santa inflatable on the roof, something I’ve wanted to do since the day we bought it. I might have been a liiiiittle too…

How About Them Apples

The kids saw some TV show where the characters went apple picking, and ever since they’ve been begging us to take them. “We can pick apples and eat them and make pie let’s goooooo!” Our schedules have been so nuts this fall that we didn’t think it would happen. Buuuuut then we remembered that there…
