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.

Eureka! It's Thanksgiving!

For the first time in 2 years we were able to head home for Thanksgiving. I am so thankful this year that Scott isn't working retail. Especially with how ridiculously early stores are opening.  I'm thankful I'm working for myself . Luckily I had Wednesday off and Scott, well, he can have off whenever he wants. We made it out of the city with no traffic and came home in time for dinner.  I made that cake like 5 years ago in school (don't worry just the outside is real). I'm surprised my parents have still kept it even though its changing colors and covered in dust. Everytime we go to my parents house Scott always has to poke fun of my senior pictures. He's just jealous he didn't get to sit on a swing.  My mom had just gotten the upgraded version of Scott's phone. She had no idea how to use it, so Scott had to show her how. For the rest of the weekend I played the part of Geek Squad agent. Better than actually working at BBY.

Thanksgiving in the Valley

Thursday This year Brittany hosted Thanksgiving at her new house. We debated between going to Grand Rapids, Michigan (where my sister and mom live) and going to Little Chute (most of Brooke's family). With Grand Rapids being a 9 hour drive (no stopping), we opted for the 4 hour drive to her family. While getting ready for Thanksgiving I found these 30 plus year old German wines sitting in the garage. I guess they'd been sitting in Grandma Lungwitz's basement since then. We uncorked one of them for the night. I was all for it until my dad opened one and when I mentioned where it came from he made a face and exclaimed he would not drink it. My contribution for Thanksgiving this year was pumpkin shaped rolls. For the first time in 33 years we actually get to sit with the adults and the cousins were at the kids table. They were happy to have their own table. To our surprise Brooke's cousin Hayden showed up too. We always have a

Thanksgiving in Chicago with (Almost) the Whole Tuska Clan

Thursday After work on Wednesday we drove down to stay the night at Scott's parents house. When we arrived we learned the air mattress was already at Colin's place. Luckily we brought Meadow's travel toddler bed. Unfortunately that bed no longer stays inflated. We woke up, ate breakfast and drove the final 90 minutes to Chicago. For some reason I got the address wrong by a block. I stepped up to this modern home and thought aloud, "This can't be right." It turns out it was one more block to the east. When we arrived Meadow said, "We're here already?!" I guess she's not used to short drives. Then we found the right place. The story with their apartment is that the building was a single family home that started on fire. The inside was gutted after the fire and split into two units. Thank you Chicago for saving the building. While the food was being prepped we ate fancy meats and cheeses. My brother Colin was har
