I decided to bring back the photo diary. I enjoy looking back at the posts to see how I used to live my life.



As winter goes on the lazier I get on Sundays. Scott is worse then me, he is still in bed after I get up.



Scott had breakfast when we went out on Saturday to Mickey's. So we have brownies instead.



Just kidding. I have steel cut oats and a banana. I eat out of the pot to save on dishes.



Scott has chips and salsa.



Our shower has been broken for 2 weeks, this time the handle broke off.



We finally get dressed. It's warmer out in Minnesota so no long sleeved shirt today.



First we install our new doorbell.



Good thing there's an app for that.




Yay!



We head over to our local Menards. The store is closing so everything is super cheap.



We load up on things we might need.



We stop at a vintage pop up shop. It's the last day and everything is half off.



Then we head over to Home Depot for things Menards didn't have. Some &#$% stole our cart that had my reusable bag in it. I try not to get too upset in hopes that the person who took it used it for their purchases instead of a plastic bag.



We bought a bunch of seeds for our garden. I can't wait for spring.



We make dinner, aka breakfast.



Spinach and eggs. It looks like a mess but it was tasty.



I end the night by making chocolate heartlettes in honor of valentines tomorrow.

The tile artwork looks good against the red wall.

It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like...

While driving through the Linden Hills neighborhood with the trees all lit, Meadow said, "It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas. Oh that's what the song means!" Since it was the weekend after Thanksgiving we had to make that a reality. We decorated our little place with the Christmas decorations that made the cut in our downsize. You didn't think we'd get rid of our collection of nutcrackers? Did you? My good friend and realtor Nate invited us to his companies Christmas party. Meadow was super excited. Upon walking in they had her favorite cutouts for photo ops. Meadow was also super pumped to pick her own cookies. First we ate said cookies. While waiting for our turn to see Santa Meadow wrote him a letter. Both kids did great. Though none of them smiled. Nate later asked me, "Is Santa smiling?" Indeed he was not. We were number 87. I'm sure he was done with smiling by number 50.

Brooke's Always Productive Vol. 978

  Along with Meadow going back to school and needing masks, I also made her some headbands and attached buttons to hold the straps.  Perfect so her little ears don't get hurt. The kids requested Chocolate Rye Pancakes for this Valentine's breakfast. So sweet. In two ways. I guess Brooke got Meadow a Valentine's shirt. Nope, I got her the fleece lined leggings with hearts on the knees. She already had the shirt. Mmmm...the kids' favorite. You know it's cold outside when you can't see out the window.  Meadow was up to her crafty self and made Theo a batman mask. She made a wrong cut and patched it up otherwise it looks awesome. I made Brooke some peanut butter-peanut butter cup-chocolate ice cream for Valentine's day. It was delicious. When you live in a small place your bedroom becomes your sewing room. I also prefer sewing standing up.  I'm not sure if she's complaining, but I love our small footprint condo lifestyle. Do not miss our big old house. N

Sisters, a Brother and Walking Chicago

  Summer always seems to mean one thing: weddings. Whether I'm shooting or attending, we're bound to end up at a few every year.  This time around we were heading down to Chicago from my big sister Katrina's nuptials. I feel like all our vacations are centered around a wedding or something wedding related. I wish we could go on a vacation without having to worry about being somewhere.   It also means a few repetitive trips down I-94. There aren't nearly enough unique stops off the interstate. One outlier is Foster Cheese Haus , the only organic Wisconsin cheese shop I know of. Run by the folks behind Castle Rock Organic Farms , we always try to stop by. Unfortunately for us they were closed on Wednesdays, but at least we got to spy on their darling garden out front.    Brooke and I arrived in Necedah. We decided to stop at Brooke's sister Brittany's home along the way to cut the ride in half and get her dressed hemmed.   In
