Fun at the Fair!

I had never been to a fair as far as I can recall until I moved to Mesa County. I'm not a farm kid and as far as I knew, fairs were for farm kids. But in the past several years, my children have made me appreciate the Mesa County Fair more than I ever have and now I know that you … more

Let's Get Dirty

The squash that ate the garden

Check out this spaghetti squash. Julie from the Sentinel’s online department gave me a few seeds to try and I’m loving it. It’s a smaller squash, perfect for two people. I planted it on the side of one of the trellises my husband built and hoped it would climb up and … more

Breakfast for Dinner

Josh Groban vs. Elvis Presley? Yes.

It seems only fair that after a month of asking you to fill out our Greatest Love Song Ever bracket, that Rachel and I post ours. As you'll notice, we have pretty different tastes in music. I'm not sure Rachel had heard of Josh Groban before she met me. If she had, she … more

Getting Fat

  I've wanted to give fatbiking or snowbiking a shot for a while but last winter we had such good snow conditions the skis always took priority. After all, when you get back to back powder days all winter long, it would be rude not to take advantage of it. This year is a whole … more

Music On the Goe

From Concert Trips to Finding True Love, Music Always There
