My Bonnie Lies Over The Ocean

Today is the first day of spring, well it is only 30 degrees but for the first time in months I don't need to wear 8 layers of clothing to go outside.



Cevonne graced me with her beautiful presense for a few quick days. I realized I miss having a companion around. Someone I can spend all my time with. I'm ok with doing things alone, but I would rather have someone with me to share the experience. She came along with me to do the things I'd been putting off for some time. She knows what I'm talking about.

We took a romantic walk at Minnehaha falls. The frozen waterfall was so beautiful, I was in awe the whole time.



It felt like by the time she got here she had to leave. I wish all my friends could come here whenever they wanted. I get a little homesick thinking about it.

My baking teacher was angry at my class because we never listen when he talks. He made me stand in front of the class and tell a story while he sat in my spot. Well, I can't handle it when all attention is on me and my mind goes blank. I stood there and he says, tell us what you did last night. Normally I don't go out on Friday nights because I have class so early on Saturday mornings, but some girls that I worked with at the mall asked me to come out with them for happy hour. So I told the class I went out for a few drinks and got home late. I finished and everyone stared at me. My teacher asked how I felt, I said akward, so he let me sit down. Now my class thinks I'm like this bar hopping party girl. Ah well.

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 …
