Sunday February 20, 2011



They've been saying for days we were going to have snowstorm today. I wake up to this. Cloudy but no snow yet.



As usual I get up before Scott.



Sunday's are Pick-On-Peanut days.



I start making breakfast.



While it bakes in the oven I get dressed.



It has started snowing so I figure its a sweater kind of day.



Mmm pannekoeken or BIG PANCAKE.



This is Scott's "why do you always have to take pictures of me face"



Because I say, I'm the only one taking pictures"



We have things to do snow or no snow. We stop at Theodore Wirth to look at a possible wedding venue.




We like what we see.





Then we go to our favorite antique store Hunt and Gather. Everything is 20% off this weekend. We find a few things to spruce up our house.




Since we were close by we go grocery shopping at the new Linden Hills Coop. Not to sound snobbish but we were disappointed with the stores lack of local items. The bulk section didn't have any noodles either. We probably won't be shopping here again.



I get the job of clearing snow off the car.



We bought a new chair for our living room at Hunt and Gather.



We have a late lunch. Leftovers from Crescent Moon, goat cheese on an epi baguette and a mandarin.



We decide to do more wedding planning. We looked up prices and caterers.



Scott then braves the blowing snow to go to CVS down the block.



He comes back and says "I hate those shades you can't see outside." And walks over and takes them down.



I work on the centerpieces.



while Scott does lazy man dishes.



Then we both watch TV. Me on my computer and him on the TV.



Then I receive a very exciting text message!



Scott prepares dinner: Spinach Cannelloni.



Lots of spinach in our dinner again.



We have dinner late. Because we're cheap and like to save on electricity we eat our dinners in candlelight.

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.
