Davin and Dora are Having a Girl!


We were invited to a co-ed baby shower for an old-coworker-now-friend of Scott.

Davin and I worked for a few years at Geek Squad. Now we love to hang with him and his wife, Dora, and usually our other Geek Squad compadre Danny.

When we first arrived we played a break the ice game where we had to guess what name was pinned to our backs.

I think I was Barrack Obama. People were saying things like the worst and the best president. I couldn't figure it out, but now it makes so much sense.

Meadow was a hit right away.

We took a tour of the home with the owner. It's right on North Commons and the had the most amazing deco bathroom. The whole thing was tiled in black marble. There are some really awesome homes on our side of Minneapolis.

We ate lots of good food.

I loved the chicken tenders.

People kept offering to take Meadow off our hands. How could we say no?

She loves all the attention anyway.

I could go for one of these right now.

These were damn good.

I made Davin take a big bite for the camera. He's a good sport.

Their shower was also a gender reveal. I had guessed a girl before the party. Looks like Meadow will have another friend.

It's great that so many of our friends and family have had babies this year. I can't wait to meet Davin and Dora's little one.

Dora and her sister prepped diapers for guess the chocolate poo. Between taking pictures, I ate more chicken strips. This makes me want to make our take on hot and crunchy chicken cones (use rice krispies instead of corn flakes and add a tablespoon of paprika).

I had a lot of fun meeting new people. I hope they didn't get annoyed by all my picture taking. It's kind of my thing.


Meadow found a new best friend for the afternoon.


I skipped on guess the poo, but Brooke did pretty well.



I got all but one right.


Presents were opened after the chocolate-diaper game.



Then we played baby bingo based on what presents she opened. I won this round.

We all tried to cheat our way to bingo by guessing stuff they already got. Brooke had an unfair advantage of being a new mom. She remembers these things better than me.

Morgan Comes to Minneapolis and We Go to Southern Minnesota

I went to the monthly North Minneapolis Bicycle Advocacy council meeting w hile Brooke, Meadow and her friend Morgan went kayaking.

Another Marine on St. Crox-Stillwater Adventure

It's our favorite time of year: berry picking season. I think that's more of Brooke and Meadow thing, but I'll go along with it. Meadow has been asking to go for weeks. I'm not sure how she knew about it since she hasn't gone since she was a wee little one.  I made a giant breakfast before our adventure, plaintain and avocado toast, hash, eggs, cherries and strawberries. Lots and lots of blueberries as far as the eye can see. We went back to our go to berry picking farm, The Berry Patch. "Look a tiny one for me!" Meadow did an awesome job picking. She helped the whole time when she wasn't eating any. I complained and ate the whole time. We quit when the bucket was this high. Apparently we forgot that you pay by the bucket and not pint. We could have easily gotten another pint in there. As I was taking Meadow to the bathroom I noticed the raspberries looked really good. We decided at $5 a pint we would onl

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
