Homeowners

As of about 11 am this morning, Casey and I are officially homeowners. Since the closing, we’ve continued to pack up boxes and made a trip to Lowes for paint, cleaning supplies, and other random items we’ll be needing. Tomorrow is the big moving day, so our 26-foot U-haul should get a good workout between […]

Moving on up…

I’m back, hopefully for a while this time! The Berberich family has a big change coming up in the near future – we’re moving! We made an offer on a house in Thompson on Friday, and on Saturday found out it was accepted. For those of you who aren’t familiar with the area, Thompson could […]

Congratulations Tera!

It’s once again time to exercise my brotherly right to brag up my younger sister. Tera has been running her own photography studio, Blessings Photography, out of her home for the last several years, specializing in newborns and kids. She’s got amazing talent, but what I really admire is her ability to naturally “just get” […]

An Amazing Christmas Gift

Last night Casey and I had our own private gift exchange at home since we didn’t want to haul around anything extra in our Mazda 3 this weekend than necessary. I ended up getting an amazing present from her: an acoustic guitar! I was shocked! I knew she was getting me one big present instead […]

I now have a […]

The First Weird Craving

Last night I witnessed Casey’s first weird pregnancy related craving: sliced cheese and pickles. She was even nice enough to offer me a bite of her snack, but I politely declined. What is it about pickles that pregnant women find so tasty?

Our First Ultrasound

Casey and I had our first ultrasound today! It was a lot of fun, but I guess that’s pretty easy for me to say. I wasn’t the one who had to drink half a gallon of water and then hold it for an hour and a half (although Casey toyed with the idea of having […]

Interesting Idea But…

Yesterday while grocery shopping at our local Super Target, Casey and I came across a new product in the produce department. It’s called the Grapple, and is supposed to combine “the sweet flavor of Concord Grapes” with “the delightful taste of a Washington Apple”. It’s supposed to be an apple that tastes like grapes – […]
