A Very Boring Sunday

Scott is out of town in his hometown of Cudahy, WI this week, so again it's just me and kitty.

I went out the night before to meet up with some old friends from back home. I stayed out pretty late and slept in pretty darn late. 

 A lot of the food we got last week was gluten-free. I was a little skeptical about these gf oats, but they tasted like regular oats and cooked quickly.

I did add raspberries to naturally sweeten it. 

I replanted new seeds to the squares that didn't survive the transplants. Hopefully the garden will be full by end of summer.

I was worried today was going to be pretty lame with me just tackling my to do list. I had started reorganizing my baking cabinet when I recieved two text mesages asking me to cross the river over to St. Paul.
I met up with same crowd from the night before at Burger Moe's for lunch. I totally wasn't thinking (must still not be quite awake yet) and didn't take any photos during lunch. I quickly asked Katie to take a picture of Ann and I as we were leaving. 

 After lunch I met up with Cevonne to go wedding dress shopping. I'm glad she's excited about it or I'd never get it done. We walked around her neighborhood checking out different vintage and used clothing shops. 


I really liked this dress. Unfortunately it was a size too small, I couldn't lift my hands above my shoulders. My grandma is letting me use her dress if I want so I feel like I'd be betraying her by getting one that is two years newer than hers.

Back at Cevonne's she had me try hers on. I was suprised it fit seeing as she is 6 inches shorter than me. It's pretty, but not the look I'm going for.

We spent the rest of the evening looking up dresses online. I gave up on that and headed home. 

Later I picked up Scott from the Greyhound station. It's good to have him home again.

Yup.

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. Don't @ me for doing this, as the kids say. Our kitty has been havin

Fox Valley Thanksgiving 2022

As always, we made the trip to Little Chute and the Fox Valley for Thanksgiving. Since we don't eat Thanksgiving dinner until the evening. I suggested this year we drive on Thanksgiving day instead of leaving the night before.  First thing when we arrived, G.G. was already giving Meadow gifts. My mom is always spoiling her.   Then we were off to Brittany and Jeff's for Thanksgiving fun. Theo got the longest piece of cheese. Marina showing us her island on Animal Crossing.  I made some maple whipped cream just before everyone arrived. All the cousins wanted to do at first was watch each other game. Theo stayed with us when the kiddos finally started to play something other than Switch. Eventually Theo warmed up to playing with his cousins.  Look at this dumb picture. At least that's what G.G. would say. Chelsea surprised the kids with this cute cookie decorating kit that looks like Thanksgiving leftovers.  Theo just watched. Silly little guy. This cranberry bread that Britt
