Strawberry Temptations

I've made my decision after giving it much thought and I have decided that I'm going to be a baker. My sweetooth convinced me that this could be an exciting job for me, plus I'll never be hungry. For the first time ever I am really excited to be going to school, I can not wait. When I was in 2nd grade I wanted to be a baker and in 8th grade we had to take a test on what our career is going to be by what our interests were and guess what mine was...cake decorator. So really I knew it all along that this was my future and it took me this long to figure it out. I'll be done in 2 years and then I'm off to Chicago..which is where I went this last weekend.





I already know where I want to live and I have ideas on places where I want to work. And someday I'll be making these...



My wonderful indian friend has come to visit me twice in the past week or so. I hope she comes around more, along with all the others.

I'm knitting the boyfriend a sweater. I'm a little afraid because every knitter knows what happens when you knit your boyfriend a sweater. For those of you who don't know, there is a curse that your relationship will end if you make one. I'm hopefull and it sure is taking me darn tootin long time.



I also made this a while ago, but never got around to taking any pictures. My first felting project too, I'm very proud of myself. I want to felt more things, but now with me starting school we'll see how much knitting I actually get done.



I quit Menards and they were devastated. Word spread fast, by 9:00 everyone in the whole store knew. They don't want me to leave, they're even offering me other positions. I never knew I made this much of an impact on that store. I might actually miss it.

Bu Bye Chicago, Hello Milwaukee

The morning after the wedding we had leftover bagels for breakfast.
...and Brooke looked out the window.
Haha that's not me, that's Emma. See what I mean? My own husband can't tell the difference. 
By the way did you know we had roommates in our hotel room?
I also ate leftover pie from the wedding. 

Despite having to be quiet at night we enjoyed sharing our room with Tyler, Emma and Olive. It was kind of like a big sleepover.
Then we had to check out and head to Pilsen for lunch.
Tyler had been talking up Nuevo Leone for a while now, so we skipped Burrito House this time.

Next time it's a must. That's two times in a row that I didn't go to Burrito House. 
Pilsen is one my favorite Chicago neighborhoods, so I was easily cajoled.
I'm not exactly sure how they do their laundry with the machine facing the window.


Tyler, Emma and Olive got lost or something, so we walked around for a bit.
Brooke really wanted to eat this hot dog, but I said "No, it's a paint…

Honeymoon: Did Someone Say Fudge? How to Avoid the 57 Fudge Shops on Mackinac Island

We had to wait an hour but we made it onto the next ferry.

I couldn't keep my eyes off the Mackinac Bridge. One of the Star Line Ferries actually passes under it. Next time we go to Mackinac, probably with kids, we'll have to drive over it.

Cottage for Harvey & Nolan's Birthday

Back to the cottage again. This time we enjoyed our tamales at a trailhead for ATV and snowmobile trails in Cameron.
La Loma is still the best tamale shop in all of the Twin Cities. Perfect to bring along on a drive to the cottage.
We decided to come up for Nolan and Harvey's birthday. We hadn't seen them since Thanksgiving and probably won't see them again until next summer. 
It seemed like the best time to spend some time with the Gostishas and Farbers. With school back in person in Wisconsin, we'll have to reevaluate when we can see Brooke's sisters. Covid sucks.
Since we hadn't seen Chelsea in a long time we had more birthday presents to exchange. Theo got a new water bottle. Back in February, when it was his birthday, Chelsea asked me what Theo wanted/needed for his birthday. We had recently lost his water bottle in Mexico so I suggested he needed a new one. I obviously forgot all about this conversation. Earlier today while grocery shopping Scott picked up a …
