Cevonne's A U Alumni Now

We've had a crazy ant invansion in our home. They keep popping up all over the place especially on our kitchen counters. 

I'm starting to wonder if they're hiding behind the backsplash.

I whipped up some homemade ant killer: sugar, water, borax and peanut butter. 

I also made bananas foster oatmeal. Scott really liked it the last time I made it. When I told him I made breakfast he said,"Ew! Oatmeal." Last time I make him breakfast. 

I'd have reacted differently if I had known it was banana fosters oatmeal.

I'm starting to have to get up at night to go to the bathroom. I do not like that. And my belly button is popping.

So cute.

The ants mostly hang out by our dirty dishes. It was Scott's turn and normally he'd just leave it for a few days but the ants grossed him out. 

I started eating the oatmeal and noticed a knife with peanut butter and  a million ants on it. I just had to do all the dishes.

My yearly photo of Scott doing dishes.

Har har.

It was supposed to rain later so I suggested we do some gardening. It was really hot and humid. The pregnancy heat was getting to me. I had to take a break every 10 minutes. I'm actually not looking forward to summer. 

This is so sad. Brooke loves summer. At least we got the garden prepped a good growing season.

Jose had planned a surprise graduation party for Cevonne at Gluek's downtown. There was also a Twins game going on so I suggested we not drive. My bike tire still needs to be changed so the bus we took. 

I had been pumping my tire the night before for a night ride with Ben when my pump broke. I had replaced her tube and everything. So, really, it's just a matter of getting a working pump. 

I wish we went here more often. It's a great old building in a downtown with too few of them.

Cevonne was so surprised and happy to see everyone that came out.


We got the whole back room just for her party. 

 Now Cevonne and I are both U grads.

This is them "acting natural".

This is me taking a photo from downtown alley. I'm a sucker for these shots.

While everyone else ordered drinks I sipped on some iced tea.

Poor babe. She's got to miss beer.

Cevonne was really excited to be done with school and thought she would celebrate with lots of shots. 

Cevonne's parents were nice enough to treat everyone to dinner. I had the sausage party.

And more shots.

This was getting real. 


She may have been a bit tipsy, but she cut the entire cake.

Hanson was clearly tired.

During the middle of the party the storm clouds opened up. While everyone else left in their cars, Scott and I waited in the rain for the bus back home.

We headed back on the road when we got home.

Some people were heading back over to Cevonne and JT's house for more partying. 

Cevonne had had enough partying I guess. 

Madeline was too excited with all the people there and didn't want to go to bed. She entertained us instead.

We watched the Billboard Awards, which really means I made fun of the pop tarts for a few hours.


Scott and I were hungry again so we went home and had leftovers.

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

Sushi Sunday Returns

Today I woke up before Scott and surprised him by making big pancakes. I was so excited, but I had to take a quick shower first. He didn't know I was making breakfast and woke up too late. He had to scarf it down before heading to work. I'm not going to complain that Scott had to work on a Sunday again. Yea it sucks, but I need to be more thankful that he has a job. It may not be the best he's had or the worst and the pay isn't phenomenal, but life isn't always fair. Instead of dwelling on the things I don't like I need to be more happy about the things in life that are great.  After he left I spent time on-and-off working on this puzzle. It's a lot easier to see the many colors when the suns out. I think I found about 3 more pieces.  Then I ordered more seeds online . Last year we figured we had enough, but then we realized we really want to grow kale and chard and popcorn. I know it's a little early to be getting excited abo

Mexico 2020 - Guanajuato

While planning our Mexico trip Scott discovered a city "nearby" that he said looked cool. He originally told me it was like an hour away.  I think I said a few hours away, but maybe. Except when we got our bus tickets it was actually 6 hours.  Sometimes you need to take a journey for a good adventure. Or something. We picked up this model bus for Theo at the bus station. Also he's claimed the Frida backpack.
