We Swear This is the Last Time We're Going to the Farmers Market in 2012

Even though Scott said he was sick of crepes like two weeks ago he again made crepes for breakfast. 



It was really nice out today and even though we really didn't need any more vegetables we decided that today would be the last day to go to the farmers market for real.

Who can say no to brussels sprouts on the stalk?

As we got out of car we saw Emma running towards us. Good timing on our parts.

She totally scared me.

The farmers market had tons of squash, but I'm not a big fan of them. There are just too few recipes. It's got a place on our "we're sick of this list" that is topped by cucumbers.

It's pretty crazy to be getting farm fresh produce at the same time Christmas trees arrive at the market.


Afterwards we stopped by the Eastside Coop to pick up a few things.

A few things turned into a lot of things.

Our loot at the farmers market. Pie pumpkin, spinach, carrots, red cabbage, a bunch of kale, brussel sprouts and onions. All for only $19.

We've been eating vegan lately,  but not on purpose. We discussed getting chicken and saw that a rotisserie chicken was cheaper than buying a whole chicken. We also loaded up on cheese.

We ate the drumsticks for lunch with a side of the best string cheese we've ever had.

Scott had a photo shoot today and prepped for that. 

I'm shooting businesses for Google Business photos as part of my freelance routine. This time I shot Doc's Gym over on Penn and Lowry. I take typical editorial style photograhs and also create Street View tours of the businesses. I like doing the shoots, but getting clients takes a lot of leg work.

Tyler and Emma asked us if we wanted to come over for chili and games. I offered to make some gluten-free cornbread.

I did laundry on what may be the last day to hang stuff outside.

While Scott was gone I cleaned the kitchen.

In case you were wondering how my chalkboard jars turned out. Much easier to distinguish what is what.

I then snack on crackers and cheese.

When Scott got back we went to Babies R Us to do some Christmas shopping. 

Then we headed over to Tyler and Emmas.

My chili started out traditional.

Before I knew it I had a fiesta of a bowl. Avocados, yum!

We played with Olive after dinner and before she went to bed.

Then it was time to play Catan. Scott and I were completely lost after not playing in a long time.

They have the expansion pack for it and it makes the game overly complex.


About 20 minutes in the game Scott gave up hope of winning and quit. He entertained himself by reading the manual during the two hours he waited for our game to finish. I ended up winning which was the first time I ever won that game.

I feel like I always get caught in the middle of the board. There wasn't much of a chance for me, so I thought I'd study the game. I now know you can block intersections with a settlement. We'd never played that way. Next time I won't be such a sore loser.

Money DOES Buy Happiness

I got a wake up call when I realized all the loans I took out for school actually went for school. I'm only working part-time at Menards now which is just enough to pay the rent and bills. My phase of being poor wasn't really a phase, but actually permanent. I took out another loan so I would have extra cash to feed me (being poor is the best diet). I won't see that money for another month which means no time off for a Christmas break. I have to wait a few more days to find out if I even get Christmas Eve off. This is by far the sadest Christmas ever for me. It doesn't even feel like Christmas. Only one house on my street put lights up, I'm used to everyone in my whole town putting up lights. Plus we don't have a tree or any decorations and we haven't had any snow yet. I did get a Christmas present from Menards, 55 dollars in Menards money and this. In two weeks someone I love and care about very deeply will be in London for 5 months and I only get to s

Broken Bones and Labor Day

As you can see I am wearing a sling. Why you ask? Well it all started Thursday morning when I being the nice person that I am decided to help out Scottie and his roomates move into their new house. Everyone had gone back to their old house to get more stuff and I stayed behind to finish unpacking things out of my car. I was walking back to my car and thought it would be faster if I went in between a trailer and a van. Being the clumsy person that I am I somehow tripped in the process, ripping my jeans as well. Not thinking I had broken my arm I continued to carry things into to the house. My arm did hurt a little, but I thought it was no big deal. I had to leave for work. When I got home I noticed a huge bump on my elbow, I became worried at this point and called my mom. She said it was probably just bruised. I put ice on it as I was driving, when I got to the mall I saw the bump had gotten bigger. I was really concerned now so I thought I would go to first aid and see if someone the

Over the River & Through the Woods to Grandmothers House We Clean

My mom had wanted us to come down to my grandparents home to clean for months. Unfortunately a busy summer had kept us away. We finally made it a week after our honeymoon ended. We slept at my parents home in Cudahy before heading down to Racine. We got home from our trip on Tuesday and left for Milwaukee on Thursday. It was almost like an extended vacation. Before leaving the cities we stopped and had dinner at Foxy Falafel. It was pretty good and I like that she uses sprouted chickpeas.  I never knew my grandparents on Poppyseed Tuska's side so Grandma and Grandpa Wojcik were a special part of my life. They both passed away last year after living nearly 90 wonderful years.  Their home was always a wonderfully warm and inviting place. The perfect place to spend your Christmas Eve in front of a fire place. Since it's going to be sold, Brooke and I took on the massive task of organizing and cleaning the home. When Scott told me his mom wanted us to c
