This summer, I decided to refinish our pantry/cupboard. It is an heirloom, passed down from Sarah's parents; her Dad had constructed it many, many years ago. We currently use it to store our cookbooks and serving-ware. Over time, the heritage piece has taken some abuse: scuffs, crayon marks, stab wounds that Sarah insists come from… Continue reading Andy and the Summer Pantry Upgrade Crusade
Sarah has always dreamed of having a surprise birthday party. So, for her 25th birthday, I gave her one. It was Tuesday, May 20, after I finished my last exam of the semester. I thought to myself, a very clever thought, "Since Sarah also likes the blog, I will make a surprise blog post about… Continue reading Sarah’s Surprise Birthday Party: A Behind the Scenes Look!
Well, Paleo February is several weeks behind us now. Non-Paleo (or possibly Anti-Paleo) March is well underway. What did we think? Did we love the experience? Did it leave us bitter and scarred? We both agreed that it was good. We picked up a few dietary insights that we will carry with us into the… Continue reading Paleo February: A Review and Reflections
The other day I was thinking. And then, Sarah thought it warranted a blog post. Since it is a snow day here, and class was cancelled, I figured I had time to work on it. Why was Jesus crucified? Jesus came, lived, and died to take away the sins of the world. When He died… Continue reading Why was Jesus Crucified? and How Can We See the Mission of the Church in the Nation of Israel?

I could go on, but I’m sure you get the idea. Part-way through Christmas break, I began to suspect that our holiday eating patterns were unhealthy. Not sure what tipped… Continue reading The Gala Premiere of Paleo February – An Andy Post
Yesterday was my birthday. [As a note, "Chapter One: The Birth of a Genius" is a quote from the Winnie the Pooh movie, which we watched last week and thoroughly enjoyed, not me flaunting my vanity.] Traditionally, I have a carrot cake to celebrate and Sarah generously agreed to carry on this ritual with me.… Continue reading The Carrot Cake Palooza (or) Celebrating Chapter One: The Birth of a Genius
Sarah has been telling me for a while now that I ought to write a blog post on how I do my online sales. She even suggested that it could be good advertising for my Ebay, Half.com, and Amazon accounts, and, now, Sarah's Ebay! (Feel free to click on those hyperlinks and buy anything you want. Lots… Continue reading Wrangling the Cash Cow (or How I Manage Online Sales)
I thought I would take a few moments to write on our blog about something near and dear to all of our hearts: what we are eating and what we are trying to eat. Our efforts to improve the health factor of our diet have been mentioned previously on this blog, and I assure you,… Continue reading On our diet…
Hello! Since the blog is entitled "Adventures of Our Own", I (with Sarah's encouragement) decided to write a post for myself. The subject: the search for a medical school and how I decided on the University of Pikeville. For those who don't know, I began applying to medical schools over the summer. In the fall, interview… Continue reading A Post from Andy, for Once
