Before and After Photos of our Home


Since our home is the best it's going to be while living here I thought I would share photos from when we first moved in and compare them to what our house looks like now.

The photos from 2010 are from when we first moved in so a lot of the rooms hadn't been put together yet.

Not much has changed to this room except it became Scott's office instead of our giant walk-in closet. I always thought we would do something with the walls, but I guess that never happened.

So long fish wallpaper and asbestos tile. Adding the white porcelain tile really brightened up the room.

This didn't change at all in the last 5 years. It's the only bright colored space in our house.

Mille Lacs for the Day

Yesterday I made yogurt and today it was ready to go in the fridge. 

Backcountry Camping with Kids in Theodore Roosevelt National Park

Day 1  Back in May I stumbled upon Theodore Roosevelt National Park. I had no idea there was a National Park in North Dakota and that it was the northern end of the Badlands. Usually our summer vacations coincide with Scott's work trips. Since he didn't have any this summer I thought we should take advantage of actually taking a vacation. What, my workcations are always classics? I suppose a second real vacation this year wouldn't hurt. We definitely have more time than normal. As long as we took Covid-19  precautions and avoided people. We finally settled on a time to go. Blake joined us so we borrowed our dad's van so we could ride together.

I'm pretty bad a keeping phone calls short. Since we both had off and it was nice out we decided to go apple picking. I was really worried we wouldn't make it this year with the wedding coming up fast. We decided to go to the Minnesota Harvest Apple Orchard near Jordan ( the city, not our neighb
