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.

Sand Dunes State Forest

Out of the blue we decided we needed to go camping. Being only a few days after the fourth we decided to head to a state forest. Most state parks are booked this time of year, so the forests are good alternative. On the way I got really hungry. We found a Culver's and ordered a small feast. Of course I got a blueberry malt and a bacon butterburger. The best of all malt flavors. Brooke and I shared cheese curds since she already ate leftovers.

A Tettegouche Camp Cabin and Roller Garden Brooke Birthday

Saturday It's become a yearly tradition to stay at a cabin for my birthday. Since Saturday night was the only night that worked for us this year, our locations to stay at were slim. We had casually checked places all week. We hoped to stay somewhere with snow, but all those places were far away or booked. We decided to wait to see what was available on Saturday.

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
