Valentiens = Hearts

Today started off on a bad note. I was caring Meadow downstairs to make breakfast when I slipped halfway down. I landed on Meadow and she started crying. I thought for sure I had broken her leg. She was fine, but when I stood up I couldn't walk on my left foot.

Brooke thought she may have broken it, but after a conversation with Momma Gail we thought we'd wait it out. It turns out it was better by the next morning. I'm just happy neither of my babes got seriously hurt.

This sweetheart is a tough little gal. Her canines are coming in, which means her nose has been running for a week.

Seeing as it's Valentines I made us some heart shaped eggs.

Along with chocolate rye pancakes that tasted like cake. 

Meadow couldn't argue with cake for breakfast.

Meadow colored in some hearts while Scott cleaned up. 

I finished crocheting my heart garland.

All I wanted for Valentine's Day was some ice cream. So Sebastian Joe's it was.

Salty caramel for me and the usual Oreo for Brooke while Meadow took about a third of each our cones.

Since it was only 5 degrees we got a 30% discount.

Back at home it was time for lunch. Of course we ate it in a heart shaped bowl.

We only have one.

I needed to rest my foot so Meadow and I watched Charlie Brown's Valentines episode.


I made a heart-shaped bundt cake while Brooke prepped dough for Valentine's pizza.

This pan makes the perfect servings.

Meadow figured out how to get into the nook. She was writing on everything but the chalkboard so I helped her up to the real thing.

Even when I took the chalk away she didn't want to leave the nook.

Or stop drawing on everything.

I asked Emma if they wanted to join us for dinner. To go along with today's theme we had heart shaped pizzas.

This was a damn good Hallmark card appreciation day. The Fiala's always make for a good time.

Meadow is suddenly into hugging. 

After I gave Tyler a bunch of my old clothing I read Olive a story since she asked me. Brooke tried to catch this moment but was too slow. Nice try killer bee!

It was hard to do with one working foot.

Happy Valentines!

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

A Few Thoughts to Pass the Time

I'm sitting at the library, my new hang out besides random coffee shops. Class isn't for another 2 hours and I've finished all my homework. There's a guy running across holding his pants up and rush hour is just setting in. I never realized how weird Minnesotians actually are until I saw American Idol last night. They were doing auditions in Minneapolis, which Randy liked to call Minnehopeless. I thought it was just the culinary students that we're weird at my school, but no it's the whole state. The majority of the people that I know here are not actually from Minnesota, only one that truely is seems ok to me. Maybe I'm just like them but I don't want to admit it. School is alright. It keeps me busy. I like that some classes only have 10 students. Everyone in my Nutrition class eats healthy and reads the ingredient list but me. At least I get to take home everything I make in my baking class. Summer seems so far away. I need to find a place to l

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.
