Bowling and a Broken Camera on Emma's Birthday

I'm so excited because I'm finally starting to "show."

She really looks pregnant in "real life." 

Scott was going to make me french toast for my birthday but we didn't have milk or eggs so we put it off until today. 

We used a sweet bread we made a while back. It was a bit saccharine to me. 

After breakfast I made dishwasher soap. 

The past week or two I've been feeling the baby move. When it does karate on me I can see my stomach move. I love watching it do that.

I love to watch Brooke, watch the baby kick.

Today is Emma's birthday. I kind of think its funny that we look alike and I'm only 3 days older than her. Since we couldn't bowl on my birthday Emma thought we should go for hers. 

The dude at Elsie's thought we wouldn't want to play for an hour and then turned around. At that point we decided to find some place else to bowl.

Since Elsie's didn't work out we met up with them in Crystal at Doyle's Bowling & Lounge.

When I wasn't looking, little Olive accidentally dropped my camera. Not just any camera, but my good camera. The autofocus stopped working properly for both the body and the lens and the viewfinder didn't work properly. Seeing as I make all my money with this equipment, the next month will be interesting to say the least. 

After seeing the lanes at Bryant Lake bowl Olive was really excited to try it out. She was actually the only one of us to get a strike. 

I only beat Olive by a few points. That's how bad I am at bowling.

For dinner Emma suggested 50's Grill. 

We got there a little early and waited in the lobby.

When I got home I tested my camera with a few different lenses. Though most of the issue is the lens, autofocus was hesitant no matter what lens was attached. 

We then headed over to Tyler and Emma's for a long overdue game of Catan.

Still hopeful that it wasn't the camera body, I played with my old school manual focus lens. Anyways, it was great to get in some Catan action.

Emma had also picked up Sebastian Joe's ice cream earlier.

After having a malt at 50s Grill, I wasn't exactly ready for more ice cream.

Emma won as usual. She's the queen of Catan at this point.

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

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

Honeymoon: Did Someone Say Fudge? How to Avoid the 57 Fudge Shops on Mackinac Island

We had to wait an hour but we made it onto the next ferry. I couldn't keep my eyes off the Mackinac Bridge. One of the Star Line Ferries actually passes under it. Next time we go to Mackinac, probably with kids, we'll have to drive over it.
