Yes I'm Still Alive

Sorry for the lack of updates. One reason being that I'm never actually at my house anymore and I figured my life was too boring to write about. Well, up until today it was. I am no longer a schooless wonder. I won't get jealous whenever I drive by the U, because....I go to school now. Woo. But...at a school I didn't think I would be going to up until today. It was just an idea a week ago and today I was convinced this is the school for me. I'm going to the Art Institutes International Minnesota. Something I should of done a long time ago. Why did it take so long for me to realize I should go to art school like I originally planned. I'm actually stuck between the photography program and the baking and pastry program. I know two totally different fields, hopefully the winter semester will help me decide. I don't know I do love my cake.



C'mon who wouldn't want to eat that.

I've pretty much been working everyday now. My arm is better so I'm back to working at Menards. Being gone for 3 weeks was the best time ever. I hate it even more. Good thing I'll be going to school so I can finally quit.
Working at the mall is actually fun. I like everyone I work with plus celebrities come there. For example Dr. Phil, Nick Lache, the Minnesota Twins, Beyonce's mom and The Chariot shopped in my store. I was just told yesterday that I'm not allowed to ask off of work from Thanksgiving to January 7 or we have to quit, so my Christmas is going to be short and lonely this year.

We got another animal to add to our pet store. A cute little kitty with 6 fingers, we call him Hex.

Congratulations on your decision! I wish you luck with getting ready for school! You never told me that celebrities came into the mall! That's so exciting! We have to talk again soon...one of these days I'll make it up there.

Hi,
I am SO happy for you! I knew you would go for art. I knew it all along. I say cake as a hobby, Photography as a carrer. Call me. If you are not reading your book, I want it back, too.

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

I don't want summer to end

Today we went up to Medicine Lake to do some boating activites. Since I won't be able to make it up to my cottage this year I was glad I got to do that before summer ended. I really think I'm having the best summer ever. Well, I say that every year so I'm not sure, but this summer has been pretty great. Yep that's me kneeboarding. My first time too, I was pretty proud of myself. I'm working a lot now. 60 hours this week. It's good money, but now I won't be able to enjoy the rest of my summer. I don't have time to go the beach or for any bike rides anymore. Working at the mall of america isn't such a good idea either, I keep wanting to buy things. Gnarls Barkley was there a few days ago, so maybe I'll see some celebrities.

With Spring Comes Biking

Whenever daylight savings changes I flip the mattress. (I know I'm a little late) Every new season I change the duvet cover.  Scott actually helps me this time. Yup, I'm cool like that. I was a little worried we had too much dough so we got out every pan that could be used for muffins. I was wrong, we only needed two pans. By the time we actually eat "breakfast," at least that's what Brooke calls it, Peanut has already finished most of his Organmix. I know, we spoil the little runt. Speaking of Brooke's fascination with breakfast, she will not eat anything that resembles lunch for her first meal of the day. So, even on the laziest Sunday, breakfast comes before lunch. As you can see Brooklyn really loved her muffin-fast -- even if it was already 1 p.m. While I finish up some dishes Brooke cleans the kitchen. Did you know that Brooke is a cleaning expert (really, she'll clean your house or cook for you. H
