Kitara is 11 Months Old!

It is hard to believe it, but we have been parents for 11 months.  This means that we will be celebrating Kitara’s first birthday NEXT MONTH.  It is almost impossible to believe.  For as long as I can remember, I have heard various parents speak about how fast time flies by and how quickly kids […]


Kitara is 9 Months Old

Alright, get ready for the cute-off.  I keep telling myself that I will work on having less baby-related posts, but, to be honest, she is the most important thing in my life anyway.  Consequently, you all get to hear all about her.    One of the neatest things about Kitara right now is that she […]


Trees Around the Yard

Thanks to the wonderful weather that we are currently having in TN, I have been spending my Labor Day Weekend outside working on our yard.  Even though we have been in this house for a little over a year, there is simply a ton of work to be done outside before I am ready to […]


Milestone Two: Shedding

In my previous post, I mentioned that it looked as if my boa was preparing to shed.  A couple of days had passed and Lilith’s eyes turned back into a deep black and nothing had happened.  Writing my prediction off as a novice mistake, I went about business as usual. Today, was Lilith’s scheduled feeding […]


Milestone one: The Feeding of the Boa

As a novice snake owner, there are a few different milestones that one has to face.  Of those milestones, one of the most interesting is the first feeding.  Feeding a snake can be a slightly tricky business, particularly for newly bought + young snakes.  A snake owner in this situation has quite a few different […]


A New Addition to Our Family

While I was working with my previous employer, I had a good friend, Tanya, who was into raising bearded dragons.  Besides having a really cool name, bearded dragons are awesome lizards that grow to ~1 ft in length.  Also, they are tame and can even be trained to ride shoulders, sit with their master, and, […]


Critters Again

Crystal and I were enjoying an evening on our front porch, reading and watching the puppies tear up our sparse grass.  As we were sitting there, I began to notice the sheer number of moths that were perched around my door and decided to take a few pictures.  They are pretty cool! Although the above […]


Critters Around the Yard

Lately, I have been spending quite a bit of time outside, trying to plant grass, moving downed trees, and doing the whole ‘yard’ thing.  For the life of me, I really don’t understand why I am going through all this pain as it seems like I am trying to create work for myself… :)  Anyway, […]


(wo)Man’s Best Friend(s)

Some of my fondest memories from growing up are those of my pet dogs.  Its seems as if I have always had an animal companion to greet me when I got home, play w/ me when I was outside, and to just be there when I was feeling a little down.  There is something wonderful […]


Flower Gardening 101

Crystal and I have been spending quite of bit of time working outside on improving the look and feel of our home.  Although I have never considered myself much of a ‘yard person’ (always felt like a rather pointless endeavor to me), I have to admit that I am really enjoying the process of setting […]
