Farmers Market and our Friend's 40th

I made kale egg cups for breakfast.

Hey, we're actually home on a weekend. I had a wedding shoot on Saturday. We couldn't leave town this time.

Meanwhile Meadow watched Jenny Lewis videos.

She requested eggs without kale.

This'll do.

I had made chocolate chip cookies stuffed with Oreos on Friday. Brooke requested this. She only requests sweets once a year. So, I had to oblige.

These were a Pinterest fail, but still tasted good. Although a bit sweet.

Then we biked the new portion of the 26th Avenue Greenway to the farmers market.

Looking good. Only one more year until it's complete.

We happened to arrive with the rest of the bikers.

We let Meadow pick whatever she wanted. She chose purple cauliflower, lettuce and butternut squash.


Every time we go here there is this older Hmong woman selling toys. Meadow stops to look at them every time. This time we let her pick out a toy, she chose a mermaid. She couldn't stop looking at it and ran into a pole.

It was comical and sad at the same time.

And then it was time to go back home for a while.

Back at home we shredded cabbage for sauerkraut.

We bummed around for awhile until we met up with Shannyn and Brent (and their friends) at Betty Danger's for her birthday. She let us know she wasn't bringing her kids and we could if we wanted to.
We decided to try to find a sitter for Meadow. When that fell through she came anyway. I figured someone else would bring their kids.


Turns out we were the only ones with a kid. Ah well.

The women got to ride the ferris wheel.


Hey guys.

I've already rode it for hours (see the Street View shot at the link above).

I think we'll bring Brooke's parents here next time they're in town. We'll just have to find a sitter.

Meadow loved this place.

Supposedly the owner, who also owns Donnie Dirk's and Psycho Suzi's, hates kids. She shows that in an ode manner.

It was a perfect evening for being outside.

Happy Birthday, Shannyn! Hope you didn't mind Meadow crashing the party too much.

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

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

Over the River & Through the Woods to Grandmothers House We Clean

My mom had wanted us to come down to my grandparents home to clean for months. Unfortunately a busy summer had kept us away. We finally made it a week after our honeymoon ended. We slept at my parents home in Cudahy before heading down to Racine. We got home from our trip on Tuesday and left for Milwaukee on Thursday. It was almost like an extended vacation. Before leaving the cities we stopped and had dinner at Foxy Falafel. It was pretty good and I like that she uses sprouted chickpeas.  I never knew my grandparents on Poppyseed Tuska's side so Grandma and Grandpa Wojcik were a special part of my life. They both passed away last year after living nearly 90 wonderful years.  Their home was always a wonderfully warm and inviting place. The perfect place to spend your Christmas Eve in front of a fire place. Since it's going to be sold, Brooke and I took on the massive task of organizing and cleaning the home. When Scott told me his mom wanted us to c
