House for Sale?

My early bird helper helping me prepare breakfast.

These two make getting up early a OK.

Lately Meadow has been waking up around 8:00.

Brooke thought she burnt the food. It turned out delicious.

She must think she's at the cottage.

We may be moving this summer, which means we have to get our house ready to sell. Our to do list is a lot longer than we originally thought.

We picked up a bunch of things to get the basement in better shape. According to the lead safe practices class I took I needed some thick plastic sheeting.

We also got basement wall paint, rubber baseboard and a few other things.

We didn't have any leftovers for lunch and we were all starving at Menards. So frozen pizza it is. 

The cardboard that came with the pizza turned out to be a bad tray.

 Once Meadow was down for a nap Scott and I got to work on the basement. We decided to work on one room at a time.

The first step was removing the old baseboard and vacuuming up any debris.

Meanwhile I started sorting through all the stuff we want to get rid of. My sisters want to do a rummage sale in the spring so I worked on pricing things. 

After spending all afternoon in the basement we made some veggie sushi.

I made some dessert sushi to finish off dinner. It's just a banana spread with peanut butter and rolled in rice krispies.

Meadow finished hers up while...

I had no idea you were thinking of moving. Do you know what area? Have you found something?

Bu Bye Chicago, Hello Milwaukee

The morning after the wedding we had leftover bagels for breakfast.
...and Brooke looked out the window.
Haha that's not me, that's Emma. See what I mean? My own husband can't tell the difference. 
By the way did you know we had roommates in our hotel room?
I also ate leftover pie from the wedding. 

Despite having to be quiet at night we enjoyed sharing our room with Tyler, Emma and Olive. It was kind of like a big sleepover.
Then we had to check out and head to Pilsen for lunch.
Tyler had been talking up Nuevo Leone for a while now, so we skipped Burrito House this time.

Next time it's a must. That's two times in a row that I didn't go to Burrito House. 
Pilsen is one my favorite Chicago neighborhoods, so I was easily cajoled.
I'm not exactly sure how they do their laundry with the machine facing the window.


Tyler, Emma and Olive got lost or something, so we walked around for a bit.
Brooke really wanted to eat this hot dog, but I said "No, it's a paint…

Honeymoon: Did Someone Say Fudge? How to Avoid the 57 Fudge Shops on Mackinac Island

We had to wait an hour but we made it onto the next ferry.

I couldn't keep my eyes off the Mackinac Bridge. One of the Star Line Ferries actually passes under it. Next time we go to Mackinac, probably with kids, we'll have to drive over it.

Cottage for Harvey & Nolan's Birthday

Back to the cottage again. This time we enjoyed our tamales at a trailhead for ATV and snowmobile trails in Cameron.
La Loma is still the best tamale shop in all of the Twin Cities. Perfect to bring along on a drive to the cottage.
We decided to come up for Nolan and Harvey's birthday. We hadn't seen them since Thanksgiving and probably won't see them again until next summer. 
It seemed like the best time to spend some time with the Gostishas and Farbers. With school back in person in Wisconsin, we'll have to reevaluate when we can see Brooke's sisters. Covid sucks.
Since we hadn't seen Chelsea in a long time we had more birthday presents to exchange. Theo got a new water bottle. Back in February, when it was his birthday, Chelsea asked me what Theo wanted/needed for his birthday. We had recently lost his water bottle in Mexico so I suggested he needed a new one. I obviously forgot all about this conversation. Earlier today while grocery shopping Scott picked up a …
