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.

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 bit.
Brooke really wanted to eat this hot dog, but I said "No, it's a paint…

Sand Dunes State Forest

Out of the blue we decided we needed to go camping.Being only a few days after the fourth we decided to head to a state forest. Most state parks are booked this time of year, so the forests are good alternative.
On the way I got really hungry. We found a Culver's and ordered a small feast. Of course I got a blueberry malt and a bacon butterburger. The best of all malt flavors. Brooke and I shared cheese curds since she already ate leftovers.

Katrina and Dennis's Big Day!

I don't shoot nearly enough weddings. I'm just not good at the whole marketing aspect.The one's I end up photographing are, like this one, family or through the grapevine.
This time around I'm shooting my big (little) sister's wedding to Dennis, a man I respect immensely. I got to hang out with him a few times in Chicago and then a whole week in San Jose. I really looked forward to the bachelor party with the guys and wasn't disappointed.
While the women got ready and after I helped setup the venue I came back to hang with the dudes and ostensibly get dressed. As you can see above we drank some beer and booze and shot the shit.

My big brother, Colin, was the officiant and was really excited for his parking pass that was included with his ordination packet.
All the women involved in the wedding gathered into Katie's room to get our hair done. Olive was just there to entertain us.

And the bride is ready.
At some point we had to take taxis the mile or so up Wab…
