6 Months and Counting

Yesterday was our 6 month anniversary. I can't believe it. These last 6 months have flown by. I have never had so much fun, felt so much love, and been so stressed all at once. My love for Mr. McB grows every day and I fall in love with him over and over.
Here are a few of my favorite memories with Mr. McB:

Our first Valentine's Day. Mr. McB bought be beautiful hot pink roses and this cow, Pinkie McRosie.

We both love West Virginia and enjoy the beauty of our wonderful state. I'm sad to leave in May.

NYC-how we love thee! You have been the place of so many special memories for us. Sitting at Rockefeller Center remembering our engagement.

Being honored to be best man and maid of honor at our friends' wedding.

Our rehearsal dinner. The air went out and it was the hottest day of the year. They say something always goes wrong with a wedding-this was our mess up.

Walking down the aisle as husband and wife!

I wanted to see the baby elephants-Mr. McB randomly took me. :)

My favorite season-fall. Mr. McB took me to a pumpkin patch to pick out my own pumpkin.

Mr. McB-I love you with everything that I am. You truly are my prince charming and dream come true.

Sweetest Guy In The World-MINE!

If I haven't mentioned it before, I have the sweetest husband in the world. He loves to baby me-most of the time ;). He has been especially wonderful since August. I know he is really busy and doesn't have a lot of time, but he has really been pulling his weight this last couple of months. I have such an awful and busy life right now. I work 44 hours a week, plus have two graduate classes at night. Therefore, I'm not home two nights of the week. On top of that, we travel a lot on the weekends. So, I haven't been the best housewife. I love being domestic and hope to do better at it starting the end of next week.

My point-Mr. McB always tries to make the best dinners for me. He is one of the best cooks I know. Now he has taken up my passion-baking. He made me rice krispie treats just b/c I wanted them. :)

Here is a good look at my cutie:

My Mess of a Life

The past couple of weeks have been really hectic. I've been trying to keep up with all the blogs I follow and also try to update this one. However, I haven't done the best of jobs.

Since November 3rd, I've had almost 600 3-page papers to grade. The joy of working for a university is the amount of work that must be completed on a deadline. I love my job, but the past couple of weeks have been so hectic.

Plus, my graduate classes are winding down. I have lots of work to do for my healthcare finance and nonprofit finance classes. Ugh! I can't wait for May to come. I just pray to God that I can get everything done and do well with this degree.

Also in this time, Mr. McB got a brand new job. He not works for the WVU Cancer Center with the medical director. Yay! Finally a job that revolves around the work he did for his maters degree. We can't wait to move-WV offers very few jobs in our field.

In an earlier blog, I requested prayer for Mr. McB's aunt as we rushed up to NYC to be with her. Well, she passed away. She had battled breast cancer for about 8 years and we are thankful that God put her at peace. However, the loss of a loved one is a hard thing to go through. I've lost two aunts to breast cancer and I've also lost my uncle, grandfather and two close family friends (like an aunt and uncle). I hope you will continue to pray for Mr. McB and his family. We are all in need of continued thoughts and prayers. This Thanksgiving was extremely hard for us since it was the first holiday without her.

After getting back from NYC, I got extremely sick for the next couple of days. Luckily, I'm feeling better now. I hate being sick and laying around. There was so much I could have done during those days I was sick.

Mr. McB did a fabulous job in putting together a surprise party for my birthday. The time wasn't the easiest for him, but he still showed me why I love him so much. We went out for my favorite dinner, Mexican. When we got to the restaurant, there was a huge table set up with many of my close friends.

Here are all the girls celebrating my birthday! Thanks girls! You're the best.

I also got some pretty fabulous gifts. Mr. McB got me some awesome scrapbooking stuff. I love to scrapbook, but I find it hard to take the time to do it. He got me some awesome stuff to make me take the time. :)

He got me this awesome Cutterbee in pink with some other Cutterbee things in pink. I love it all.

Mr. McB also got me a WVU vest. I love it and have already worn it a million times. What a great buy! :)

My bestests also got me great gifts. I received Sex and the City The Movie. If you haven't seen it, it is a must.

I also received a Vera Bradley Pink Elephant Cool Keeper. This was such a great buy. I have always been a breast cancer advocate and I love this pattern.

Mr. McB's BFF got me two pieces of Vera Bradley in Java Blue. I love getting Vera! :)

My actual birthday was less than exciting. Mr. McB and I drove into our hometown. The next day, we had dinner with my family. Dinner was terrible. I wanted to go to a steakhouse, but they could not get my steak right. Finally, I just stuck with eating my sweet potatoe. However, I have missed my family and I had a fine time, especially with my little cousin.

We then drove up to New Jersey for Mr. McB's aunt's memorial service. The service was nice, but it was a very hard and sad time. I did enjoy being with the other part of my family, who I haven't seen in ages.

Unfortunately, our car broke down on the way back and Mr. McB and I almost missed Thanksgiving. To make matters worse, my SIL would have missed her Thanksgiving too. However, God does provide and Mr. McB's dad sure was thinking. We got a U-Haul with a trailer and brought the car back home with us.

Since then life is getting back to normal. I will be a better blogger.

Hope you all had a blessed Thanksgiving.

Missing my BFF

I met my bff when working on my undergraduate degree. I sat down beside of her in class and we became instant best friends. I am not typically the one to like other girls and I usually keep my distance with people I meet, but we had an instant bond. Immediately, we became joined at the hip and continued to be like that for the next three years. Once we started graduate school, we became further and further apart. Even though I still love her like a sister, I miss my best friend.

Today, she took me out for a birthday lunch-my birthday is on Friday. It was so great to be able to sit down with her and chat. We try to do lunch on Wednesdays, but that has become less frequent with our uberly busy schedules.

To my bff and sister from another mister-I miss you!

Shaney-Thanks for the birthday lunch!

Prayers Needed

Mr. McB's aunt has been battling breast cancer for over 8 years. This weekend, her sickness has increased. We have traveled up to New York City to be with our family in this time of need. I am currently sitting in the Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center. Please pray for peace for our family and peace for James' aunt. Pray that she looks to our Lord and that her pain is diminished. Also, pray that we have safe travel back to our lives.

Joyce's Fine Jewelry, Uniontown, PA

I have always been a planner at heart. I was again thinking about my future in wedding planning and saw a commerical on TV. It was for our jeweler and family friends at Joyce's Fine Jewelry in Uniontown, PA.

Check out the beautiful ring David designed for me.

I love both my wedding band and my engagement ring, which were both designed by David at Joyce's Fine Jewelry. Everytime I go to their shop, I see amazing and unique jewelry I would love to purchase-funds are stopping me. :)

Mr. McB's ring was also purchased at Joyce's, but was not designed there.

Not only does David design jewelry for their store, but Joyce and David's son has just gotten back from gemology school and is now designing his own line of jewelry called Carbon 6.

If you are looking for new jewelry, stop by Joyce's Fine Jewelry in Uniontown. You will not only be pleased with their selection, but will also love your service with our wonderful friends.

A Great Meal with Mr. McB

Last night, Mr. McB made a simple, yet amazing meal. He made cheese tortellini with a butter garlic sauce.
He bought store tortellini filled with cheese and prepared the little bites of heaven as anyone would prepare tortellini. Then, he melted a stick of butter and mixed with garlic, olive oil and little slices of olives in a skillet. It was one of the best garlic butter sauces I've ever had. Not only was it amazing, but the meal was super quick and cheap to make.

Not a great day to be a Mountaineer....

This weekend involved some good and some bad.

My weekend was started by getting off a little early on Friday and working around our apartment. I wanted to get everything super clean-almost made it. :) I still have some winter clothes I got out of storage, but aren't put away and I still haven't filed everything as far as paperwork. Other than that, our apartment looks beautiful. :)

After Mr. McB got off work, we drove into our hometown with his brother. Their dad was going to be in town and we don't get to see him very often. The older Mr. McB got us all tickets to see the Trans Siberian Orchestra. What a great show! It was loud and the lights were bright, but we really enjoyed ourselves. I really enjoyed the first half with Christmas music and a Christmas story. The show was super long and I was super tired when we finally got to my parent's house.

We got up early Saturday morning to drive back home. It was game day at WVU. Mr. McB's dad came up to our place to go to the game with us. The older Mr. McB was a WVU alum and went to medical school here. I think he really enjoyed coming back to town and hanging out with us. We tailgated all afternoon-that is what happens when there is a WVU night game. Unfortunately, the game did not go like all expected. We almost came back, but blew it. :( What an awful night!

Yesterday, Mr. McB, his dad, his sister and brother, and I went to breakfast at IHOP. Our IHOP is the best I have ever had. I got to have my favorite, pumpkin pancakes. After breakfast, Mr. McB's dad left and Mr. McB and I went out running errands.

Overall, the weekend was busy, but I enjoyed seeing my father-in-law.

7 Minutes in Heaven

I've been tagged by Emily at Imperfect I love these kind of things.

1. I'm scared to graduate with my masters degree, but can't wait to actually be in the real world and away from a college town.

2. I always get mistaken for younger than I really am. I hate this! It's my biggest pet peeve. Yes, I have one degree already. Yes, I'm old enough to be married.

3. Although I am a professional student, I hate being labeled as a student. I work and have a real life-it isn't all fun and games.

4. I often fear I have something wrong with me or I'm inflicted with some awful disease. I'm such a worrier.

5. I'm whiny and often get mad at the drop of a hat. This is the main reason Mr. McB and I get into fights. I always want my way.

6. I love clothes, but grow tired of them soon after buying them. Ugh, the neverending battle.

7. I still own clothes I bought in junior high school. I was 13. I need to let go. :)

I'll tag:

Work Load

Obviously, I haven't been posting very often. My work load is over the top. I am grading papers for an Adventure WV class with over 600 students in it. This equals to be a little too much for me. Oh well, hopefully I'll be back in full swing soon. :)

Cutout Sugar Cookies

I am usually a good baker. I love baker and most of my baked items turn out very good. However, I've never been good at cutout sugar cookies. The other night I wanted to you my great Halloween cookie cutters and sprinkles and make sugar cookies. I couldn't remember how my mom used to make them, so I went to my trusty Better Homes and Garden Breast Cancer Edition cookbook.

They turned out terrible. The dough never did get hard enough to roll out-even with a whole night in the fridge. So, I made regular sugar cookies and they are very bland. Yuck! They look more like dog treats. Oh well, I'll not use that receipe again.

Anyone have a good receipe for cutout sugar cookies?


Although I love this time of year, I always get sick towards the end of October.

This is me-all day long!

Just got chills..

...and not from the cold outside.

I just happened to check out a blog and "I Will Be Here" by Steven Curtis Chapman was playing. Mr. McB prerecorded this song for our unity candle song at the wedding. Now I get chills every time I hear it. What a great husband! I just love him!

A good start to a truly fall morning


Welcome to fall. I wake up this morning to cold temperatures. This is nothing new, but I find out the temperatures are not going to increase much during the day. Welcome to fall!

Although I love fall, I have a hard time transitioning from summer to fall wear. Anyone else have this problem?

Today, I feel like I look too wintery, but I don't have a lot of outfits to wear during fall. Also, where we live, we have to park far away and walk a ways to work-this will be better once we move and I'm done with graduate school. So, I don't get to wear the cute trendy winter shoes. I have to stick with ugly flats or I'll bust my butt. :)

On a lighter note, I am having yummy coffee my boss brought in. She made coffee and brought in pumpkin creamer. I usually like my coffee black, but I can't resist the pumpkin creamer. :)

Stay warm!

A Perfect Fall Night

Monday night was an amazing fall night. Mr. McB and I got to spend the whole evening together-this doesn't happen very often since he has work and I have work and classes to finish up my Masters degree.

Mr. McB started off by picking me up at work. It is always nice to not have to fight the traffic with my P-O-S car. Unfortunately, there are too many people and not enough roads in our town. That's another topic for some other time.

Then, we made a quick run to Kroger. I love that our town bulit a brand new Kroger so close to our place. We picked up a couple of things and headed to our place.

For dinner, we had fried chicken, green beans, and fresh cauliflower. Although I love fried chicken, I never eat very much of it. So, my main dish was the yummy cauliflower we bought at the fall harvest festival for such a good price. I can't believe how much cauliflower we got for so cheap. We made half of it and had plenty. Even better, Mr. McB made a nice creamy cheese sauce to put over the steamed cauliflower. What a perfect fall dinner.

After dinner, we took our dog, Kona, on a walk through the neighborhood. She loves walks, but we don't get to take her on them very often.

When we got back, James put on Saw IV. I was the one who always liked scary movies, but recently I just can't watch them anymore. However, James has been in a scary movie mood. I've seen all of the Saw movies and this one was by far the most confusing. I was totally lost by the whole thing. Oh well! Anyone care to explain?

I'll end with a couple of pictures of fall.
Country Roads, Take Me Home....

Adorable gourds-but I love pumpkins more!

The entrance to our place. I love the bail of hay and mums. On the door is a Halloween wreath my mom and I made. We each have one and I think they are adorable.

Our adorable pup with the fall decor. She didn't want Daddy taking her picture.

The pumpkin Mr. McB carved. I need to carve mine, but I'm not very good at such things.

Happy Fall!

My Mild Obsession with Pumpkins

I don't know why, but I've always had a mild obsession with pumpkins. When I was little, I requested a pumpkin pie instead of a birthday cake. Since forever, I have loved October, fall and everything that comes with that time of year.

Mr. McB has been extra great this fall. We are both very busy, but he has made time for us to do special things together this season. It began with football season and watching our favorite team-WVU-at every home game and even on one away trip. Unlike a lot of girls, I like football. We have also been to a couple local high school games. Mr. McB coached baseball and one of his plays football. We've been to a couple of those games and been able to take advantage of the beautiful new high school stadium.

Then last weekend, Mr. McB took us to a local Italian restaurant for a nice dinner. Puglioni's is probably one of my favorite restaurants in our town and I got to enjoy a nice pasta dinner with their garlic butter sauce. It was excellent-since they use a lot of garlic and make their own pasta. I also love their bread with butter and fresh garlic poured over it. Yum! After the WVU game on Saturday, we traveled to our home town to be with family. For as long as I can remember, it has been a tradition for my mom, aunt and I to go to the Pumpkin Festival about 30 minutes from our hometown. I couldn't do without going this year. So Saturday night, we got to enjoy our favorite Mexican restaurant with my mom and the in-laws. Then Sunday, my mom and I headed to the Pumpkin Festival. My aunt and Mr. McB and the in-laws met us there. My aunt got us a great personalized giant candy corn to hang on our door and my mother-in-law got us a great smiling pumpkin for decorating. I enjoyed a loaded baked potato and some pumpkin ice cream at the festival. Mr. McB pretty much only enjoyed the food and the birds from the wildlife refuge.

This weekend, Mr. McB watched as I participated in the Homecoming Parade for work.

Then Saturday, we attended a tailgate by one of Mr. McB's BFFs. Lookup's-that is his name and he's 6'7"-parents were in town for the game and wanted to have a big tailgate party. We had a blast and luckily WVU won. Here are Lookup and his gf (also our good friend).

Then yesterday, Mr. McB took me to a Fall Harvest Festival at his favorite orchard. We had so much fun driving along looking at the beautiful leaves. I took pictures, but they don't do the beautiful scenery justice. We got to the festival and it was super crowded and hot, but we still had a blast. We went through a corn maze. Mr. McB found me....

Here is my adorable husband-Mr. McB.

We took an awesome hay ride to the pumpkin patch to pick out our favorite pumpkins.

Here we are picking out our pumpkins.

After yummy apple cider and pumpkin roll, we picked out various things we wanted from the fall harvest festival. I got a brown sugar and cinnamon covered apple. Yum!

On our way home, we stopped at an Italian restaurant. I was not that impressed. My eggplant was great, but it was not all it was supposed to be. Puglioni's is still my pick. :)

Thanks Mr. McB-for making my fall the best ever.

Although not properly displayed through the blogging world, I love to entertain. Entertaining friends and family is something I truly live for. Unfortunately, with work and graduate school, I have been unable to entertain as much as I would like.

Are you interested in entertaining? Check out this new book by Matthew Mead-available in bookstores all throughout the U.S. and Canada.

This book is a display of entertaining at its finest. Without all the expensive hoopla, Michael Mead shares a great way to entertain. Don't believe me? Check out Michael's website:

Now I'm off to begin planning my next entertainment venture-a fall/Halloween party. Don't these look nice and festive?

Now go check out that book and this great blog: :)


Recently, I've been branching out in the blogging world and reading more and more blogs. I love reading about people and their lives.

Today, I came across a giveaway at What a great blog and an even better giveaway.

Eat, Pray, Love

I finally finished reading "Eat, Pray, Love." I don't know how I feel about the book-didn't love it, but didn't hate it. Overall, I thought it was interesting and had a lot of good insight toward life and religion, but I didn't necessarily agree with Elizabeth Gilbert's persception of religion and her god. However, I did enjoy reading about her travels to the three Is-Italy, India and Indonesia, especially her account of falling in love. At times, the book seemed to be too in depth for the type of reading I was looking for, but her eloquent writing made me continue reading. In the end, I find Gilbert's "Eat, Pray, Love" an enjoyable book, but think I will stick to chick lit for the next read. Have you read it? What did you think?

I'm in love...

....with this outfit from Ann Taylor. If I had the money, I'd buy it all right now.

"Fall"ing in Love

Fall-my absolute favorite season.

Sometimes I have had second thoughts about my June wedding and wonder if maybe I should have waited until fall.

I can't wait to see more pumpkins and the changing of the leaves-one of West Virginia's truly glorious wonders.

I am usually even ready for fall and winter clothing-however, this season I'm not crazy about much.

Here is the highlights of what I like so far.

This coat from Newport News is pretty cute-however, I always hesitate about the belted waist. The waist is not my trimest of areas.
I'm loving the banded look from Target-however, I always feel pregnant in these styles-and I'm definitely not pregnant.

This tunic from Newport News would be super cute belted-it seems these looks I like will never work on me.
Although not a fan of this sweater, I'm digging the fall scrafs. I think they add something really cute to the outfit.
I just love the richness of fall and wish I could change my whole house decor for this time of the year-not rich enough for that yet. :)

Mr. McB's Recent Project

Have I mentioned that I have the best husband? Well, I do.

Getting married fairly young (early-mid 20s), Mr. McB and I have had to handle some hand-me-downs in our life-especially hand-me-down furniture. My mother-in-law was gracious enought to give us her old dressers. We have two matching pieces, but they were stained different colors and had old hardware. Needless to say, the dressers were not Mr. McB and my style.

We decided to refinish them and one day while I was at work, I come home to this.

Our dresser-stripped and sitting in the middle of our place. That evening-my life revolved around this.

The painting of our old furniture. I was thrilled for the process to be happening so soon.

After hours of painting and hours of letting the paint dry and lots of money and wedding gift cards spent on the perfect hardware, Mr. McB and I have beautiful, brand new dressers.

Our beautiful dressers (please ignore the dog blanket in the floor).

What do you think? Did Mr. McB do a good job?

Mr. McB loves....

After being tagged, but not directly, just as a newlywed....I decided to do a post on Mr. McB's loves.
