Antiques and Baby Baths

Meadow has been going to bed earlier since the time change. If I don't wake up before her I usually bring her into our room with us. Eventually she gets hungry and falls back asleep. 

Morning snuggles are the best.

The part she left out is that she leaves Meadow with me as a human alarm clock. I guess I can't complain. Look at that face!

After she fell asleep I had breakfast. Scott had lunch. 

Potato and cabbage soup with croutons. I ate too many croutons and felt naucious afterwards.

She has finally run out of disposables so we moved onto cloth diapers. We've had a few leaks, but  I think we've figured out how to stop them. 

I was planning on heading to Wayzata for another shoot, but the overcast weather turned it into a fun day with my two babes.

Now that she's wearing them I don't really notice the goofy prints. 

She would rather be in her diaper all day. 

We decided to put her in this little hooded outfit we got from Emma. It will sadly be the last time she will wear it. It's a bit small for chubby checkers.

We had no plans today and decided to go to Hunt and Gather since we hadn't been there in a long time. 

Meadow likes this place. 

These would've been great for our wedding.

I love that they have true antiques and goofy knickknacks.  Holy mini Bozo the Clown inflatable whatchamacallits!

Of course I wanted this Kmart-branded rangefinder, but I passed.

They had a few vintage books and toys. 

I think Meadow wanted this styrofoam doughboy for her room.

This was my favorite find. Brooke wasn't as into the Metrodome seat cushions.

I ended up getting Meadow a book on Paul Bunyan for $2. I didn't know he was born in Maine. 

I annoy Brooke about new camera equipment all the time. I don't think she believes in the adage that you have to spend money to make money. She should check out this guy's overindulgence.

Anyways I decided against any of their ancient lenses. I'll continue to shoot from 35-55mm (or in DX mode) on my quite good 17-55mm f/2.8 DX. It's not convenient, but it has good results.

Since we were heading back this way we stopped at Home Depot and Costco. We've recently become members at Costco as an early Christmas gift to each other. So far it's been helping us save money. 

Though most of the food we get from there is organic, I couldn't help but get some pork for sausages, carnitas and pulled pork.

I spent the next hour installing this light we got at Home Depot for above the kitchen sink. I had to cut the screws in order to make it work.

Then it was Meadow's favorite time of the day. Bath time!

I think she's too young for bath letters. We played with them nonetheless while she stuck 'em in her mouth.


After Meadow was asleep we watched an episode of Breaking Bad while I knitted her some mittens.

I want to see the mittens. I gotta check out this Hunt and Gather place sometime. I think you should have bought the dough boy. :)

Over the River & Through the Woods to Grandmothers House We Clean

My mom had wanted us to come down to my grandparents home to clean for months. Unfortunately a busy summer had kept us away. We finally made it a week after our honeymoon ended. We slept at my parents home in Cudahy before heading down to Racine. We got home from our trip on Tuesday and left for Milwaukee on Thursday. It was almost like an extended vacation. Before leaving the cities we stopped and had dinner at Foxy Falafel. It was pretty good and I like that she uses sprouted chickpeas.  I never knew my grandparents on Poppyseed Tuska's side so Grandma and Grandpa Wojcik were a special part of my life. They both passed away last year after living nearly 90 wonderful years.  Their home was always a wonderfully warm and inviting place. The perfect place to spend your Christmas Eve in front of a fire place. Since it's going to be sold, Brooke and I took on the massive task of organizing and cleaning the home. When Scott told me his mom wanted us to c

How Can We Make Life Less Boring?

This weeks bread is Ciabatta. Scott had made this a few summers ago so we thought we'd try a variation and add caramelized onions and herbs. Nothing like cutting onions in the morning.  I'm really hoping Peter Reinhardt will find our blog and see that I'm making everything in his book and want to do a movie with me. It'll be called Brooke and Peter. I'm also gunning for a movie once Mark Bittman passes away. OK, I'm not. That' just weird. We did make oatmeal raisin pancakes from Bittman's Food Matters cookbook. Oatmeal pancakes? Yes please! These turned out much better than the oatmeal raisin waffles we had a few months back. I tackled this darn puzzle again.  Peanut (our cat if you didn't already know) loves whining. Mostly he wants to go outside or in the basement. This time I gave in and he had some kind of deja vu to his alleycat youth. Scott played on his phone while Peanut played outside. We both t

7 Days Down, 158 Days To Go

Umm, well I ended up having a longer Christmas break than I had originally thought. It went really well until the last few days. I had dreaded this day since we met, I always knew it was going to come, but yet I ignored that it would ever happen. Saying goodbye to Scott was the hardest thing I've ever had to do. I've had to do that so many times last year and I still have to do it. If I can get through January and February and I think I will be ok, or so I keep telling myself. I took out a second loan and it got denied, so I'm still as poor as ever until I can figure out what I'm going to do. I'm so glad school starts next week, being alone all day is very hard. I left Scott Thursday night and headed back to Little Chute, which I was glad I did. We're having some family issues concerning my dad's business and the death of his friend. It tears me up to see him like this. I wish I could've stayed home longer. I pretty much did, I left home early Su
