Morgan, Holidazzle and Road Trip Reminiscing

While driving back to Wisconsin my friend Morgan stopped at our house for a couple of days. Of course I made my hash for breakfast.

Someday we're going to open a breakast place called hashtag. We just have to wait for that term to become passe.

Meadow had some books that needed to be returned. Morgan happily tagged along.

We've been going to the Pierre Bottineau Library over in Northeast quite a bit recently.

Afterwards we brought Morgan over to secret Target. 

Today's stock wasn't very impressive. We did get Meadow some new boots at least.

I was hoping for sweaters, but nothing really fit right.

When we got home we ate leftovers from the potluck we had hosted the night before for our neighborhood organization.

We never have snacks in our house so whenever they're in our sight we over indulge.

Then we met up with Shannyn, Brent and Eleanor at the Hollidazzle Market in Loring Park.

It was rather boring, but the German ornament tent was cool.

They needed to have less food and more crafty vendors.

The items were impressive to look at. I kept Meadow's mittens on to keep her from touching everything.

I guess Germans put pickle ornaments in their trees.

I was going to ice skate with Meadow, but I wussed out since I was the only one in our group who wanted to.

Since Morgan didn't have skates I didn't want her to feel left out.

No snow and and ice free Loring Park Pond. What a weird December thus far.

There was an ice luminary booth at the Hollidazzle Market. Morgan was interested in the icy globes so at home I showed her how I make them with Bundt pans.

Before going to bed we drank a bunch of local brews and watched a slideshow from our road trip to Albaquerque years back.

It was fun to relive memories and always fun to have Morgan around.

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.
