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.

Marina's Twin Cities Birthday Weekend

Our niece Marina was turing 11 and had one request: a weekend in Minneapolis with her favorite cousin, Meadow. Marina made these masks for them. You know this cat lover was excited.  We walked over to Kiniko Kids and they had a Ghibli cookbook.  Meadow wanted this mushroom hat.  Since ice skating season ended early we still wanted to get one last skate in.  Theo tried out his new skates, which needed some adjustments.

Brittany's Babyshower

We traveled to Wisconsin again, this time for my sisters baby shower. Luckily I have Friday afternoons off so we could leave by noon. We also picked up Brittany along the way. My mom made us dinner when we arrived and during dinner I discovered a Christmas present that wasn't given to me. Super cute cloth napkins.  Mama Gail made what Brooke and her siblings dubbed "craperole." It was some kind of pasta bake. I actually liked it. Brittany and I had gotten our pajamas on not realizing we picked out the same outfit. I can't wait until my belly is as big as hers. My parents are giving Brittany their old changing table. Jaspurr thought it was his bed. I thought it was a new TV stand. My dad thought he needed a diaper change. Now he's all clean. The next morning my dad made sausage and eggs for breakfast. Us girls had packed up and left for the shower before Scott woke up. I had to run off to Mr. Mike's shop to photograp

Backcountry Camping with Kids in Theodore Roosevelt National Park

Day 1  Back in May I stumbled upon Theodore Roosevelt National Park. I had no idea there was a National Park in North Dakota and that it was the northern end of the Badlands. Usually our summer vacations coincide with Scott's work trips. Since he didn't have any this summer I thought we should take advantage of actually taking a vacation. What, my workcations are always classics? I suppose a second real vacation this year wouldn't hurt. We definitely have more time than normal. As long as we took Covid-19  precautions and avoided people. We finally settled on a time to go. Blake joined us so we borrowed our dad's van so we could ride together. Scott had just driven from Michigan the day before. Blake had met my parents in Wisconsin to get the van and then drove from Duluth to pick us up. I offered to drive since I literally only drive twice a month.  I was still pretty tired from a long drive home. Since we were near Fergus Falls we had to stop by the abandoned state ho
