Our Clothes Are Too Old?

Breakfast was going to take longer than I had thought. I forgot to add in the time for roasting beets. Meadow gets super cranky/tantrum city if she doesn't eat right away so I tied her over with a banana.

Yesterday we spent the entire day running errands. Is this how normal people spend their Saturdays? The only time we have to go shopping is to get groceries, but yesterday we had to get a birthday gift, buy kitty food, go to the camera store, grocery shop and then we tried selling our clothes at three different stores. None of them would take our clothes because they were too "old" or "faded". Some of it was stuff I got before I was pregnant and no longer fit. I guess it will all have to be sold at the rummage sale.

When we started looking it them ourselves we thought the consignment shops were crazy. While some weren't too stylish many were quite cool still.


One of her favorite activities is turning the lights on and off and saying "on" "off".

I actually found a real recipe for Red Flannel Hash. I still want the Duluth Grill cookbook.

This is one of those dishes you know Meadow is going to pick through.

I liked the hash brown-style red flannel we had a few weeks back better, but this was quite good.

Meadow's naptime was a lazy one. We have pretty much given up on the idea on selling our house this year. When she woke up she caught me eating ice cream.

There isn't time before now and the time we'd have to put it in on the market. Maybe next year. Maybe never.

We introduced Meadow to Bernie Brewer. She thought he was really cool.


Instead of housework I have been focusing on getting rid of stuff. We had planned to do a lot of this for years. We had a few bags of items to donate so I suggested a trip to the thrift store.

There's a new Goodwill on University Avenue in St. Paul, so we went there.


After we got back from thrifting and grocery shopping Meadow did not want to go inside. She wanted to stay outside and play.

She's really trying to learn to jump.

It's more of a hop, but it's darn cute.

We got all this for only $6.00. I chose Goodwill on purpose because they give you a 25% coupon when you bring in a donation. It's funny how we don't really need anything anymore so thrifting has become mostly for Meadow. 

Meadow and I tried out the Hungry Hungry Hippos. I thought this would be an easy game for her to play, but she kept trying to steal all the balls by hand. 

I made a big batch of Thai-style coconut chicken soup.

It seemed weird and way too mushroom-y, but it wasn't too bad.

Gardening Mama (or How to Hang Out with High School Friends)

Some of Scott's friends from high school that he hasn't seen in like 7 years were stopping by later to see our house. We quickly cleaned up the place, breaking one of our favorite mugs on the way.

Sand Dunes State Forest

Out of the blue we decided we needed to go camping.Being only a few days after the fourth we decided to head to a state forest. Most state parks are booked this time of year, so the forests are good alternative.
On the way I got really hungry. We found a Culver's and ordered a small feast. Of course I got a blueberry malt and a bacon butterburger. The best of all malt flavors. Brooke and I shared cheese curds since she already ate leftovers.

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.
