Dear Diary,


We were up late the night before and I worked a lot this week so I needed to sleep in today. Don't judge me.



I do my "homework" right away so I don't have to worry about it later.



Scott thinks this is a good idea too.



I didn't do dishes last night after dinner so I'm stuck doing them this morning.



Scott makes breakfast. He pulls out all our options for fillings.





Aebleskivers, bananas, and hot tea.



The floor is overdue for a sweeping.




A week before we moved into our house we noticed a dent in our car. A month ago we finally got a quote on how much it was going to cost to get fixed. When we found out it would be $800 dollars we decided to try to fix it ourselves. This is our second suction cup. The first one just scratched the paint. This one would work if it could catch on a flat surface. Maybe we'll try again another day.



We have lunch at Ikea. The meatballs are the only thing I can handle eating there.




We shop for new curtains and other things for the home. We almost bought the light on the right before we realized that although it was a good price it was too generic for us.




We go across the street to the MOA. Scott needed a new shirt for work. Which we didn't end up finding.




Next we head over to Target to get a curtain rod. Ikea didn't have one big enough to cover our windows. We looked at rugs too.



We go home to make dinner heat up our leftovers.



We also got more candles.



Jambalaya, breakfast burritos and a Lift Bridge Chestnut Hill beer.



We work late putting up our new curtains.



We'll finish with the pullbacks tomorrow.

Good Night.

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: Madeline Island Without a Kayak? At Least We Brought Bikes.

We made it safely to Bayfield without getting attacked by any bears.

I think that's because of my wily driving skills.

Katrina and Dennis's Big Day!

I don't shoot nearly enough weddings. I'm just not good at the whole marketing aspect.The one's I end up photographing are, like this one, family or through the grapevine.
This time around I'm shooting my big (little) sister's wedding to Dennis, a man I respect immensely. I got to hang out with him a few times in Chicago and then a whole week in San Jose. I really looked forward to the bachelor party with the guys and wasn't disappointed.
While the women got ready and after I helped setup the venue I came back to hang with the dudes and ostensibly get dressed. As you can see above we drank some beer and booze and shot the shit.

My big brother, Colin, was the officiant and was really excited for his parking pass that was included with his ordination packet.
All the women involved in the wedding gathered into Katie's room to get our hair done. Olive was just there to entertain us.

And the bride is ready.
At some point we had to take taxis the mile or so up Wab…
