Tacos and Hayden on Easter Sunday

Baby Bo-Dot has been moving like crazy and lets us feel its head and feet.

This is getting real folks.

While Scott was still in bed I made breakfast for myself. Since I assumed he wouldn't have time to eat and he doesn't like oatmeal, I didn't share.

Thanks honey. You're so considerate.

I starting prepping the bread before we headed to church. Scott almost didn't go because he was "too tired" to make it to the 11am service.

I didn't sleep well, lady.

As soon as we got back I shaped the bread.

We were having fried chicken sandwiches in a few days, so half of the dough was made into rolls.

Then Scott got to look for his Easter basket. This year is his last one since from now on it will just be for the kid(s).

I'll miss being a kid.

In the process of looking he takes down our Christmas wreath.

I was making sure the Easter basket wasn't hidden in the fake foliage.

He looked everywhere. 

I guess the pictures weren't good enough of him finding it, but he got a new kitchen timer and some candy.

Shaky over here must've had to much imaginary coffee.

Two of my pepper plants never sprouted. Even with the help of the seed warmer and greenhouse. I replanted them in hopes that they will sprout soon or we will have to buy pepper plants. 

My little seedlings are getting so big. I'm so glad I started them early.

Too bad we're having the longest winter ever. So much for getting ready early.

Then I finished prepping and baking the bread while we had leftovers for lunch.

This weeks bread was New York Deli Style Rye. Another sourdough as will all of the upcoming breads. I made a few rolls for our meal tomorrow night.

I had a headache and didn't want it to ruin my night later so I took a nap. Scott joined me since he had to "get up early" today.

I took naps in college all the time. With my self-employment perhaps I'm getting back in that habit.


Then Scott started prepping our Easter dinner.

Fish Tacos. Why not?

I was pretty proud of my multitasking, which included prepping salted cabbage, mashing guac and frying up the tortilla chips and batter cod.

Best Easter dinner if I do say so. Although, it was sad we didn't get to do Freaster this year.

Emma and Tyler were away. We're not sure if we will have a Freaster again. We'll see...

I was still full after dinner, but not Scott he had some of our homemade banana and chocolate cake ice cream.

I didn't want to get hungry when we went out. Plus, I really like ice cream.

For my birthday Scott had gotten me tickets to my favorite artist, Hayden. He only comes around once every 4 years, if that, so I was happy to get to see him again.

It was  a great show. Not a huge crowd with it being Easter, but he was great as always. It was perfect besides a few coked-out weirdos.

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.
