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.

Morgan Comes to Minneapolis and We Go to Southern Minnesota

I went to the monthly North Minneapolis Bicycle Advocacy council meeting w hile Brooke, Meadow and her friend Morgan went kayaking.

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.

Not My Normal Thanksgiving

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.

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
