On The Twenty-Second Day Of Advent We Saw An Old Friend

The next morning we had plans to meet up with our wedding officiator for breakfast. Meadow thought we were going to walk there.

We were going to Comet, so that wasn't possible. This guy loves Milwaukee.

Olger was a little late (had car troubles), but that smile showed up eventually.

We had some late breakfast.

We caught up on life. Olger is finishing up med school. I'm proud of this guy.

Olger had some chores to do, so we went our separate ways.

My cousin Katie is the head pastry chef at a new doughnut shop, Holey Moley Coffee and Doughnuts in the Third Ward. Of course we had to go check it out.


I got the S'mores doughnut.

Mine was egg nog flavor and very good.

After this Meadow took a nap while we finished Orange is the New Black. Then we, as in Scott, drove the five-ish hours to Grand Rapids.

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
