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.

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

Our Wedding

Brooke and I aren't traditionalists. We didn't want to sit through a half-hour ceremony, but we also didn't think eloping was the answer. One thing that we did do was spend the night before the wedding in separate houses.   Even though Scott came with me to pick out my dress I still didn't want him to see me before the wedding.

I was like, merry my dad? What he meant to type, but autocorrect corrected for him was meet.  Since Brooke came over to the venue to help, I spent most of the rest of the day with Blake, Colin and Olger. We ate some Pair of Dice Pizza and

Mankato's Minneopa Waterfalls and Bison in Spring

  Another weekend, another hiking trip. This time Minneopa State Park. We started with the Hiking Club Trail . The Hiking Club is a great way to get the kids excited about our hikes. Rather than just going out for a hike they're searching for the secret password along the trail.   Where there's rocks Meadow will climb.
