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.

Backcountry Camping with Kids in Theodore Roosevelt National Park

Day 1  Back in May I stumbled upon Theodore Roosevelt National Park. I had no idea there was a National Park in North Dakota and that it was the northern end of the Badlands. Usually our summer vacations coincide with Scott's work trips. Since he didn't have any this summer I thought we should take advantage of actually taking a vacation. What, my workcations are always classics? I suppose a second real vacation this year wouldn't hurt. We definitely have more time than normal. As long as we took Covid-19  precautions and avoided people. We finally settled on a time to go. Blake joined us so we borrowed our dad's van so we could ride together. Scott had just driven from Michigan the day before. Blake had met my parents in Wisconsin to get the van and then drove from Duluth to pick us up. I offered to drive since I literally only drive twice a month.  I was still pretty tired from a long drive home. Since we were near Fergus Falls we had to stop by the abandoned state ho

Honeymoon: Madeline Island Without a Kayak? At Least We Brought Bikes.

We made it safely to Bayfield without getting attacked by any bears . I think that's because of my wily driving skills.

Two Years As Homeowners

I have to admit, being a homeowner is hard. There are a million things I want to do with this house. The two things that are keeping me from doing those things are money and time. I hate when people use the excuse "I don't have time" because really you do, you just put what you think are priorities first.  Were also not the handiest people. I have many projects waiting for the help of my dad. Like sanding our floors. I've never done anything like it before so it scares the crap out of me to try it. I can only hope that a year from now things will look a lot different and that I can maybe get a few things that I'd like to see done, get done.  And with that here are some progress photos from the last 2 years.  Our closet 2010 2012 2010 2012 Upstairs bathroom 2010 2011 2012 I hope this is finished before next year.
