2011 Better Late Than Never



 While looking through previous posts I'd written in the past I remembered how I used to make best and worst lists of the previous year. I thought I would do that again. Even if it's a month late.

Best of 2011 
1. Marrying the love of my life.
2. Getting a whole week off for vacation.
3. Cheesefest and Door County
4. Having 2 of my closest friends become new moms.

Worst of 2011
1. Witnessing a tornado. Something I hope to never experience again.
2. Not being able to go to California with Scott.
3. Spending all our holidays here without family. Although Freaster and Friendsgiving were fun.
4. Scott having to work Sundays.
5. Waiting many months for our freezer.
(There really wasn't many bad things this year)


Things I Look Forward to in 2012
1. A real honeymoon?
2. Going to Chicago for Scott's sisters wedding.
3. Joining our first CSA.
4. Camping in summer
5. Becoming a better bread baker.

The North Minneapolis Tornado of 2011

Brooke and the cat woke up only to look out the window, searching for the alley cat. An afternoon shift at the Best Buy. A normal morning. It started so peaceful. I'm not even supposed to work on Sundays. Something was off, Brooke was making good oatmeal. She had to take the car out to Long Lake. It wasn't going to be a normal day.

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…

Labor Day is Oh So Great at the Cottage. Even This Year.

We planned on skipping the cottage for Labor Day thinking a lot of people would be up. Turns out that wasn't the case. We decided to spend our first day going on a bike ride.

We each towed a kiddo behind us. 
Pulling a bike trailer on a single speed gets to you after a while. Scott wanted to keep going down Sheltered Valley Road. We joked we should add Theo's trailer to Meadow's tag-along.
It actually worked and wasn't half bad.
