Home, Work, Baby

Now that Meadow doesn't get up quite as often at night I'm not starving when I wake up. I'm okay with making breakfast for the sleepy bears. 

 Scott was still trying to sneak in a few more minutes of sleep and Meadow was ready to get out of bed.

 The cutest alarm clock that money can't buy.

 I made apple smiley and heart shaped pancakes with strawberries. 

 Meadow joined us for breakfast.

She's sitting in her Bumbo. So, no. She isn't some kind of super baby.

 Meadow wanted to watch Scott doing some work. 

I had to finish up painting the balcony before Minnesota was in permafrost mode. I'd been painting storm windows all week, so this was the logical next step.

 Then she watched me fold laundry. She's obsessed with rolling over. As soon as I put her down she immediately rolls over. 

 Now that Meadow has a bed in her room she takes naps in there and ends up sleeping longer and falls asleep easier (awesome). I get more me time while she sleeps, so I scrubbed my feet with sugar scrub. 

I went over to I-394 to shoot a development for a client. On the way back I checkd out outdoor lights. I'd like to get a pair that match for the balcony and the back door.

I also picked up few other necessities like candy corn.

 Scott came home to Meadow and I doing aerobics. 

 Since Meadow was a week old I've been reading to her. At first we could barely make it through one book before she got bored/wanted to eat. Now she makes it through one or two. 

Oh, yeah, I got a new camera on the way home from Mankato, a Nikon D800. We still have the D300 and D5000, but Brooke isn't used to using this camera. When using DX lenses you have to look at a rectangle within the viewfinder when in DX mode. She didn't realize and took this arty pic.

 We bugged Scott again when he got back.

 Scott complained that he didn't want to make dinner. I said I would if he watched baby. I had been playing with her all day and wanted to do something else. 

 Hot and Crunchy Chicken Cones.

I heard something outside. It was the neighbor kids collecting lady bugs (well more likely they were Asian Beetles, but the kids call them lady bugs). 

By the time we ate it was already dark out.

 Scott's annual dishes photo.

 After he cleaned the kitchen he decided to make a mess again and make brownie ice cream. 

I started with the brownies. I got the recipe from the How to Cook Everything app.

 It was my mom's birthday, so Meadow and I Skyped with her.

Mr. Mike even Skyped for a little while.

I spent the next couple hours making the chocolate ice cream, freezing the brownies and then combining the two. I couldn't wait to try some the next morning.

So cute seeing Meadow at the table next to Scott. She’s so tiny. I loved the smiley pancakes.

Aerobics – ha, ha.

Mille Lacs for the Day

Yesterday I made yogurt and today it was ready to go in the fridge. 

Not My Normal Thanksgiving

Due to work and school I wasn't able to go home for Thanksgiving, but I survived because my sister"s" came up to be with me. We made chicken instead of turkey. I made pie but the dog ate it. Morgan was wonderful and made everything. We were able to eat for 3 days. We did a lot of other things and I still managed to budget my money. It really stinks to be completly broke, I've never been this poor in my entire life. All my money is going towards rent which leaves me with absolutly nothing. I dream of the day my loan check comes. My battery in my camera died so I missed a lot of great photo opportunities. I got a new job doing stock at American Eagle. Menards found out before I told them. I've never seen my manager so sad. I did a lot of knitting during my "Thanksgiving break". I made a scarf for a girl at work and a washcloth for Brittany. I decided I'd model the scarf. I'm still working hard on Scott's sweater. I'm probab

Money DOES Buy Happiness

I got a wake up call when I realized all the loans I took out for school actually went for school. I'm only working part-time at Menards now which is just enough to pay the rent and bills. My phase of being poor wasn't really a phase, but actually permanent. I took out another loan so I would have extra cash to feed me (being poor is the best diet). I won't see that money for another month which means no time off for a Christmas break. I have to wait a few more days to find out if I even get Christmas Eve off. This is by far the sadest Christmas ever for me. It doesn't even feel like Christmas. Only one house on my street put lights up, I'm used to everyone in my whole town putting up lights. Plus we don't have a tree or any decorations and we haven't had any snow yet. I did get a Christmas present from Menards, 55 dollars in Menards money and this. In two weeks someone I love and care about very deeply will be in London for 5 months and I only get to s
