Sisters and Neice Visit (or Chelsea Loves Shopping)

I found a pompom I made in my knitting bag. I thought Peanut might like to play with it. I guess he liked it too much. 

Too bad he tore it apart. The little bugger adored the thing and tore it to shreads.

Chelsea, Brittany and Marina came to visit for the weekend. Chelsea wanted to do some shopping and Brittany wanted to get out of the house. While everyone was still sleeping Chelsea and I had breakfast. 

I usually have Scott take my photo before I eat, but now a days my stomach doesn't really expand too much after eating. 

Chelsea and I left to go the Mall of America. Scott wanted to come with but he knows how slow Chelsea can be so he passed.

My sunday wouldn't be very fun at home, but at least Brittany and my little niece Marina were there to keep me company.

By the time I at lunch Brittany still hadn't awoke. So much for hanging with them.

With another April snowstorm our seedlings won't be hitting the garden until at least mid-May.

Chelsea told us she wanted ice cream and chocolate chip cookies when she came up. On Saturday I made Butterfinger ice cream and today I made some CCCs. 

Brittany and Marina watched me as I baked.

These Choco Chip Cookies turned out really good. The first time I over cooked and they were too salty. If you're going to follow that recipe, cut the salt in half.

Chelsea cuddled with Marina so Brittany could pump. We all took turns with Marina throughout the weekend so Brittany could take some breaks. 

Besides my belly bands I don't wear any maternity clothes. Lately clothes that fit me 2 weeks ago have become too short or tight so I figured I should probably get some new clothes. H&M didn't have anything on sale this time. I can't believe how much maternity clothes cost! I found one shirt and then found some long tank tops and a dress without an elastic band in the regular clothes area that were much cheaper. Hopefully with some of the clothes I have now I can make it through the next 3 months. 

Walking around at the mall all day really hurt my back. They all laughed at me while I did stretches on my exercise ball. 

I made veggie sushi with all kinds of fixings. This took me hours. 

I feel like all I did this weekend was cook for the four of them.

Apparently Chelsea doesn't roll her own sushi so we had to do it for her.

What a wuss.

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

A Few Thoughts to Pass the Time

I'm sitting at the library, my new hang out besides random coffee shops. Class isn't for another 2 hours and I've finished all my homework. There's a guy running across holding his pants up and rush hour is just setting in. I never realized how weird Minnesotians actually are until I saw American Idol last night. They were doing auditions in Minneapolis, which Randy liked to call Minnehopeless. I thought it was just the culinary students that we're weird at my school, but no it's the whole state. The majority of the people that I know here are not actually from Minnesota, only one that truely is seems ok to me. Maybe I'm just like them but I don't want to admit it. School is alright. It keeps me busy. I like that some classes only have 10 students. Everyone in my Nutrition class eats healthy and reads the ingredient list but me. At least I get to take home everything I make in my baking class. Summer seems so far away. I need to find a place to l

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.
