The Sun Sets on San Diego

Well, all good things must come to an end. The house went on the market and then the house was sold. Bags were packed, one last group of friends came to visit, and 3/4’s of the Wiktors said goodbye to the last San Diego sunset they’ll see for a while. After six years of fun…

Rewind

In a last ditch effort to get caught up on what filled our time during the last three months of 2013, here’s a quick photo rundown…

Summertime…

and the livin’s easy (sung to the tune of Sublime’s Summer Time). Our summer wasn’t quite so easy with the crazy busy schedule Phil was dealing with. The fact that it’s nearly November and I’m just now getting around to posting pictures from August is further evidence of that but alas, here we are! Although…

Wrapping Up Spring

Maybe it’s the May grey, June gloom SoCal weather but I can’t believe summer is right around the corner. Where is 2012 going? Spring found us busy with some small but important projects around the house and was rounded out by my parents’ visit for Sophia’s birthday. The first project was a minor kitchen renovation…

March Madness

Well not a lot of basketball per say but still a busy month at the Wiktor household. I was gone for a good portion of the month for work-related reasons but we made the most out of the time I was around. March saw a few things that have been sitting on the ToDo list…

Sunday Hello From Sophia

Sophia sure is a busy lady these days, but she decided to take a break from her Sunday activities and say hi! So what exactly is Sophia up to these days you ask? Take a look!

On the 504th day…

There were plants! A lime tree, an avocado tree, and an orange tree! And a bunch of others that won’t give us fruit but should keep the yard looking nice. One year, four months and sixteen days after we closed on our house we finally scratched the landscaping “to-do” off our list. I think the…

Pretzel-palooza

At the request of someone in the house who enjoys a good pretzel with his beer, the Wiktors decided to have a May-toberfest complete with beer from boots, sauerkraut, and of course, fresh hot pretzels. Utilizing the latest and greatest in pretzel making technology (Kitchen-aid mixer) and a recipe pilfered from someone’s food blog, we…

May Days

It’s hard to believe June is right around the corner and even harder to believe Sophia is a month old. In between the late night feedings, diaper changes and the occasional fussy period that comes along with a newborn, we were visited by two sets of grandparents. First, Bill and Elaine visited when Sophia was…

Great Expectations

Wow – the Wiktors have been slacking on their posts! Before things get really busy around here I thought it was time to catch up. I also happen to have some free time on my hands as I patiently wait for the arrival of some pretty important belated birthday gifts. The first part of 2011…
