A Few Small Steps to Selling our House

Since today was going to be an all housework day we decided to do a picture an hour. Mostly because when we are working on something we forget to take pictures. 

8:19am I wake up first

9:21am I start cleaning the kitchen by doing dishes leftover from the day before.

10:23am Scott and Meadow finally wake up and make crepes.

It's been ages since we've made crepes, so why not.

11:24am I needed a haircut and beard trim before we cleaned up the bathroom.

I get back to decluttering and deep cleaning the kitchen.

Meadow watches tv.

12:31pm Still cleaning the kitchen.



Meadow gets herself some milk.

Scott finishes painting exterior trim.

After all these years, I finally have the exterior looking like I'd like it. One last coat on this window and we're ready to go.

1:33 pm Scott stands outside while Meadow plays in the yard.
Oh and Tyler is currently living in our driveway.

Actually I think I was painting the final coat of paint on the garage door.


I move on to deep cleaning the bathroom. Hello belly.

I wonder what could be in there.

2:35pm Meeting and signing papers with, Nate, our realtor. It's official this is really happening.

3:36pm Meadow and I drive to my work to get boxes for moving.

4:38pm Driving home with a car full of boxes. Meadow is back there somewhere.

5:41pm Meadow wraps up her markers in bubble wrap.

I move on to wiping down the hallway.

Scott cleans up the yard.

This is the first time I've weed whipped all year. With all of our road trips and house projects this summer we were lagging behind on yard work.

Leftover dinner break.

6:46pm Meadow makes forts with the boxes.

Scott finishes cleaning up the yard.

With not enough time to take pictures and rain was forecast for the rest of the week.

I move on to the guest room.

7:51 Meadow brushes her teeth.

We didn't' know what to do with this, so I found a how-to on painting and sealing a counter. The last remnant of our old yellow kitchen is gone.

8:54pm I do dishes again.

Scott puts Meadow to bed.

9:18pm I'm worn out. Early to bed. 
Good night Moon.

It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like...

While driving through the Linden Hills neighborhood with the trees all lit, Meadow said, "It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas. Oh that's what the song means!" Since it was the weekend after Thanksgiving we had to make that a reality. We decorated our little place with the Christmas decorations that made the cut in our downsize. You didn't think we'd get rid of our collection of nutcrackers? Did you? My good friend and realtor Nate invited us to his companies Christmas party. Meadow was super excited. Upon walking in they had her favorite cutouts for photo ops. Meadow was also super pumped to pick her own cookies. First we ate said cookies. While waiting for our turn to see Santa Meadow wrote him a letter. Both kids did great. Though none of them smiled. Nate later asked me, "Is Santa smiling?" Indeed he was not. We were number 87. I'm sure he was done with smiling by number 50.

Brooke's Always Productive Vol. 978

  Along with Meadow going back to school and needing masks, I also made her some headbands and attached buttons to hold the straps.  Perfect so her little ears don't get hurt. The kids requested Chocolate Rye Pancakes for this Valentine's breakfast. So sweet. In two ways. I guess Brooke got Meadow a Valentine's shirt. Nope, I got her the fleece lined leggings with hearts on the knees. She already had the shirt. Mmmm...the kids' favorite. You know it's cold outside when you can't see out the window.  Meadow was up to her crafty self and made Theo a batman mask. She made a wrong cut and patched it up otherwise it looks awesome. I made Brooke some peanut butter-peanut butter cup-chocolate ice cream for Valentine's day. It was delicious. When you live in a small place your bedroom becomes your sewing room. I also prefer sewing standing up.  I'm not sure if she's complaining, but I love our small footprint condo lifestyle. Do not miss our big old house. N

Sisters, a Brother and Walking Chicago

  Summer always seems to mean one thing: weddings. Whether I'm shooting or attending, we're bound to end up at a few every year.  This time around we were heading down to Chicago from my big sister Katrina's nuptials. I feel like all our vacations are centered around a wedding or something wedding related. I wish we could go on a vacation without having to worry about being somewhere.   It also means a few repetitive trips down I-94. There aren't nearly enough unique stops off the interstate. One outlier is Foster Cheese Haus , the only organic Wisconsin cheese shop I know of. Run by the folks behind Castle Rock Organic Farms , we always try to stop by. Unfortunately for us they were closed on Wednesdays, but at least we got to spy on their darling garden out front.    Brooke and I arrived in Necedah. We decided to stop at Brooke's sister Brittany's home along the way to cut the ride in half and get her dressed hemmed.   In
