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.

Minneapolis Weekday Adventures and Apple Picking on the Weekend

Meadow returned to school this week. Our big 3rd grader.  We went to the inspection at our new house and afterwards walked over to Vo's for dinner. It's going to be nice having this place closer to us. One of our favorite places and now even closer. We left our house early midweek since our condo had it's inspection. While our condo was being inspected we went out for breakfast before school. I'd never been to Our Kitchen. We always ended up getting donuts from Bogarts across the street instead. It's always packed on the weekends. Was nice to get up early and get a table. Why hadn't Brooke insisted on taking us here. It's so good. Luckily we'll still live close by and stop by again. Note to self though, only order one pancake per kid. They're huge! We dropped Meadow off at school and walked over to the "Boblikin" woods as Theo calls it. A few days later we went apple picking. I am now all for the early apple picking. There's way less cr

We're Selling the Condo

We always knew our condo would be temporary. I could stay here forever but eventually Meadow and Theo will want their own space. Our next house will be a duplex with the other unit being rented out.  We had planned to keep the condo and rent it out too (and buy a duplex), but it wasn't quite working out with financing. Also realized we'd make a killing on selling the condo. Extra bonus: we'd get a nicer duplex with more cash down. We had been looking for places for the past 8 months, but houses are selling super fast in this market. If we actually want to make an offer we need to sell our place first. So today was spent getting the house ready. I've been working on the house every day since getting back from our week at the cottage. 12:00 Scott works in the kitchen I worked on deep cleaning the living room. So many toys hidden under the radiator.  Meadow ended up staying with my parents after we left the cottage. Theo was left on his own but I don't think he minded.

The Crews All Here: Labor Day 2021 at the Three Lakes Cottage

  We had a full house for Labor Day weekend this year. We started off said weekend with rummage sales and a trip to the new store in town, Little Dipper . We've been eyeing this place up all summer. They have classic Chicago Schwinn's for rent, seasonal flowers and an assortment of souvenirs and vintage items. It was pretty darling inside. The main reason we went was to get their Chain of Lakes puzzle. Blake had sent the historic map to the owner, so we had to get it.
