A Fall Garden Sunday (Damn you, Costco!)

Scott shot a wedding and was told I could come after he was done shooting. I put Meadow to bed and Emma came over so I could meet Scott. Let's just say I was pretty tired the next day.

After the wedding we sort of celebrated our fifth anniversary by going over to our favorite bar, the Aster Cafe. Brooke drank too much.

I made her a hangover cure breakfast: hash browns, eggs and bacon. Only I made twice as much hash browns than we needed.

Earlier this week we went to Costco to get our tires rotated. We mentioned our air pressure signal kept going off. It turns out we had a nail in our side wall.

I kind of figured there was a leak of some sort.

They put our spare on and said they would call us when a new tire came in. That was Wednesday and today is Sunday. Our plans to go apple picking were shot down. I guess we did have some yard work to do.

Digging up tulips turned into digging up a new side garden.

Brooke loves adding gardens. I only help because I love her.

Meadow had too much fun running in the dirt singing, "Squishy, squishy, squishy."

She also helped me gather some garden worms and a few nightcrawlers. Now we need to go fishing.

She then got a much deserved bath. 

I made beef lo mein for dinner. Brooke and Meadow loved it. I did a pretty good job at being a dad and husband today.

Since we had dinner early, I was pretty tired to do anything else we decided to watch a movie and have popcorn.

We watched The Little Prince.

We only got started, but it was so good that I had to put my phone down.

Another Marine on St. Crox-Stillwater Adventure

It's our favorite time of year: berry picking season. I think that's more of Brooke and Meadow thing, but I'll go along with it. Meadow has been asking to go for weeks. I'm not sure how she knew about it since she hasn't gone since she was a wee little one.  I made a giant breakfast before our adventure, plaintain and avocado toast, hash, eggs, cherries and strawberries. Lots and lots of blueberries as far as the eye can see. We went back to our go to berry picking farm, The Berry Patch. "Look a tiny one for me!" Meadow did an awesome job picking. She helped the whole time when she wasn't eating any. I complained and ate the whole time. We quit when the bucket was this high. Apparently we forgot that you pay by the bucket and not pint. We could have easily gotten another pint in there. As I was taking Meadow to the bathroom I noticed the raspberries looked really good. We decided at $5 a pint we would onl

Not My Normal Thanksgiving

Due to work and school I wasn't able to go home for Thanksgiving, but I survived because my sister"s" came up to be with me. We made chicken instead of turkey. I made pie but the dog ate it. Morgan was wonderful and made everything. We were able to eat for 3 days. We did a lot of other things and I still managed to budget my money. It really stinks to be completly broke, I've never been this poor in my entire life. All my money is going towards rent which leaves me with absolutly nothing. I dream of the day my loan check comes. My battery in my camera died so I missed a lot of great photo opportunities. I got a new job doing stock at American Eagle. Menards found out before I told them. I've never seen my manager so sad. I did a lot of knitting during my "Thanksgiving break". I made a scarf for a girl at work and a washcloth for Brittany. I decided I'd model the scarf. I'm still working hard on Scott's sweater. I'm probab
