We Could Close The Curtains, Pretend Like There's No World Outside

One day after a huge snowstorm I went outside to drive off in my car, but things didn't go as I had planned. My car is not suitable for driving in winter and unfortunately got stuck on a pile of snow not allowing the front wheel to touch the ground. After a half hour of scraping any snow out that I could, my frustrated, impatient self quit and decided to try again later. Two hours later my car was gone. The damn city stole my car from me. I proceeded to the impound lot only to find that 1700 people had also wanted their cars. Impatient me again left to return again the next day. After school I walked through parts of Minneapolis I had never been to before in hopes of getting my car back. $180 later it was returned to me. The man who brought me to my car told me a story about how he told a girl to watch out for the angry elephants and giraffes on the way to her car. She (a Minnesotian of course) asked to be escorted to her car because she didn't want to go alone. I got a good laugh out of that.

Here are some things I've been working that past couple of months. Sorry for the delays.

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 …
