Random Acts of January

On Saturday Meadow suggested a trip to the library. I can't say no to that.

I don't know if she loves the library because of the books or the toys.

Hello old house.

Good to see it still standing.

After the library we went to the St. Paul's Midway neighborhood to pick out Meadow's new glasses.

After our drive home from Pearle Vision Meadow fell asleep in the car. When we got home Scott brought her upstairs to go back to sleep. Normally this never works, but it worked today. She had been sleeping for 2.5 hours when I went to go wake her up. 

Usually she is really crabby if I have to wake her up, but this time she just seemed really tired and felt warm. I checked her temperature and she had her first fever. By the next morning she was feeling a lot better.

On Sunday, Meadow and Scott read all her new books.

She was also well enough to climb on buffets.

Just so you know a learning tower is a blessing and curse. Your kid will figure out how to move it around and go places they probably shouldn't.

Meadow was treated to some raisins and Cheerios before breakfast was finished. We figured she was starving after hardly eating the night before.

Mmm...hmm, red flannel hash.

We texted Blake on Saturday asking if he wanted to come over for beer and taco dip.

Beer, taco dip and the Packers game. That last one you missed.

Surprisingly he said yes. I told Meadow he was coming so she made a fort in his honor.

Our bathroom remodel project has been on hiatus for a while now. A killer sale at Menard's got us to finally pick up the shower tile. It was such a good deal that I picked some up for the kitchen backsplash too.

Blake arrived with brandy and beer.

I had already brought out all of our weird liqueurs.

The rest of the day was football, snacks and booze.

Notice Meadow and I in the background. She made me read her books to her over and over all day.

After her first fever, she was enthralled by her thermometer. We're not sure how she figured out that it goes in her mouth, since we used her arm pit.

During halftime we made Brandy Alexanders. So, of course, we had to listen to Feist's "Brandy Alexander."

Meadow came over to lay on me and fell asleep. She must've still not be feeling well because this never happens.

After a Packer's victory we had leftover tacos. We had promised Blake fish tacos, but were just too damn lazy after the game.

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

I don't want summer to end

Today we went up to Medicine Lake to do some boating activites. Since I won't be able to make it up to my cottage this year I was glad I got to do that before summer ended. I really think I'm having the best summer ever. Well, I say that every year so I'm not sure, but this summer has been pretty great. Yep that's me kneeboarding. My first time too, I was pretty proud of myself. I'm working a lot now. 60 hours this week. It's good money, but now I won't be able to enjoy the rest of my summer. I don't have time to go the beach or for any bike rides anymore. Working at the mall of america isn't such a good idea either, I keep wanting to buy things. Gnarls Barkley was there a few days ago, so maybe I'll see some celebrities.

With Spring Comes Biking

Whenever daylight savings changes I flip the mattress. (I know I'm a little late) Every new season I change the duvet cover.  Scott actually helps me this time. Yup, I'm cool like that. I was a little worried we had too much dough so we got out every pan that could be used for muffins. I was wrong, we only needed two pans. By the time we actually eat "breakfast," at least that's what Brooke calls it, Peanut has already finished most of his Organmix. I know, we spoil the little runt. Speaking of Brooke's fascination with breakfast, she will not eat anything that resembles lunch for her first meal of the day. So, even on the laziest Sunday, breakfast comes before lunch. As you can see Brooklyn really loved her muffin-fast -- even if it was already 1 p.m. While I finish up some dishes Brooke cleans the kitchen. Did you know that Brooke is a cleaning expert (really, she'll clean your house or cook for you. H
