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.

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 Tettegouche Camp Cabin and Roller Garden Brooke Birthday

Saturday It's become a yearly tradition to stay at a cabin for my birthday. Since Saturday night was the only night that worked for us this year, our locations to stay at were slim. We had casually checked places all week. We hoped to stay somewhere with snow, but all those places were far away or booked. We decided to wait to see what was available on Saturday.

Broken Bones and Labor Day

As you can see I am wearing a sling. Why you ask? Well it all started Thursday morning when I being the nice person that I am decided to help out Scottie and his roomates move into their new house. Everyone had gone back to their old house to get more stuff and I stayed behind to finish unpacking things out of my car. I was walking back to my car and thought it would be faster if I went in between a trailer and a van. Being the clumsy person that I am I somehow tripped in the process, ripping my jeans as well. Not thinking I had broken my arm I continued to carry things into to the house. My arm did hurt a little, but I thought it was no big deal. I had to leave for work. When I got home I noticed a huge bump on my elbow, I became worried at this point and called my mom. She said it was probably just bruised. I put ice on it as I was driving, when I got to the mall I saw the bump had gotten bigger. I was really concerned now so I thought I would go to first aid and see if someone the
