A Week in at the Condo

One of the main reasons we picked the condo was the awesome location. We get to be close to restaurants and shops in every direction, but we also will still be near big parks. 

On the first day that Brooke worked after the move Meadow and I explored nearby Lyndale Farmstead. I knew there was a sled hill, but didn't realize that main hill was behind the Wirth House.

Kind of funny that our house was by Theo Wirth Parkway and now we live by his house.

We hadn't brought our sleds, but we did have our ice skates.

It's been freezing the past few weeks, so when it warmed up on Wednesday, Meadow and I went for a walk over to Lake Harriet and the slumbering rose garden.

The balmy day had made the lake quite puddly, but nothing that was unsafe for a good frozen lake hike.

A few fisherman were enjoying the warm ice fishing weather.

We'll be going to this beach a lot with Meadow and the new baby.

The reason I got Meadow to go for our little adventure was a promised playground. All was good until when we went back. She did not want to take the bird sanctuary route. Well, at least the first half of the mini-adventure was a success.

 I get pretty worn out from unpacking and end up falling asleep putting Meadow to bed. So on Sunday I woke up first and already had breakfast by the time Scott woke up.

Meadow was still sleeping and when I went to check on her she was all cocooned in her blankets.

Meadow and I made some simple waffles for breakfast while Brooke Skyped with her mom.

Notice that our condo isn't full of boxes anymore? We're almost there!

We had gone to the library on Saturday and Meadow found a Wonder Woman dvd. She watched that while we did more work on the place.

We had also went to Ikea on Saturday and picked up a few things to store random stuff.

Our dining room is finally coming together. We made an art area for Meadow on one side. 

We didn't do much more this day. We finished the night with some lentil and spinach pasta. It was meh.

Not My Normal Thanksgiving

Due to work and school I wasn't able to go home for Thanksgiving, but I survived because my sister"s" came up to be with me. We made chicken instead of turkey. I made pie but the dog ate it. 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. It really stinks to be completly broke, I've never been this poor in my entire life. All my money is going towards rent which leaves me with absolutly nothing. I dream of the day my loan check comes. 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

  Some of Scott's friends from high school that he hasn't seen in like 7 years were stopping by later to see our house. We quickly cleaned up the place, breaking one of our favorite mugs on the way.
