England, Scotland, Ireland, Oh My!

Corey and I returned last Thursday night from an 11-day trip to England, Scotland, Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland. It was our first experience traveling outside of the States, Mexico or Canada, and it was pretty amazing. I participated as a staff member for Kansas Farm Bureau and Corey joined me as a…

Thriftin’ in Manhappiness

I haveĀ  been majorly missing in action when it comes to my blog. Happy to say I am finished with my master’s degree program and now have a lot more time to devote to fun stuff. I was fortunate to take some time off this week and browse our unique thrift stores. I’m happy Manhattan…

It’s Friday! What makes this day even better? I have the whole day off PLUS Monday. WOO HOO! You know what makes it even better? The house got cleaned yesterday so me and Mr. Fry are enjoying the day in a spotless house. Can I say WOO HOO again!? I started the day working on…

It’s called a foot quilt!

Awhile ago I asked my Facebook buddies if they had any thoughts on how to make those things that go on the foot of beds above the comforter. I see them a lot in hotels. I remembered seeing a pattern for one somewhere, but then couldn’t find it. I made some time this evening to…

Girls just wanna have fun (translates into sewing)

Happy New Year my dear friends! Hope you had a fun and safe evening welcoming in the new year. Our googlies are back today and boy am I happy. Absence does make the heart grow fonder. Had great fun the last couple days. I taught a friend of mine to sew (scary thought that I’m…

Sushi and me

Hubsters and I ventured out on the town last night without any kids. I asked him if he was feeling adventurous. I think he was a little sad when he realized I was talking about trying the new sushi place in Manhappiness (Green Tea Sushi, 1120 Laramie St). I was so, so, so happy. He…
