You Can Still Garden in the Condo Life

Good morning, Theo!

Good morning Minneapolis.

When we moved in there was a bunch of plants in our stairway that were dead. We are assuming the previous owners of our unit left them there. I had always meant to replace them and finally got around to it. We did a mix of herbs, cactus, succulents and flowers.

We'll see if starting from seed works in there.

The last time I was at my parents my mom gave me her old set of weights. I've since started doing some arm workouts. Scott picks on me for doing this, but I feel like I've been very inactive since getting pregnant. 

She's probably right. I'd love to go on more bike rides, but it's hard with the newborn.

It seems that Meadow always wants to play something. We pretend that all of her Barbies are superheroes. 

The north side of our building has garden beds.

They were built by old residents without the new garden unit owners knowledge. Since then it's only been used by their unit.

The basement unit recently sold and since we are the only full time owners in the building it is now ours. Happy Mother's Day to me. 

Since this is the only patch we have to take care of I don't mind yard work this year.

I did clean up some other areas that needed tending while Brooke planted the garden.

We discovered a concrete slab next to the garage under a lot of dirt and weeds. It would be neat to turn this space into a sitting area since our condo lacks a yard.

We were all tired after being outside all morning.

Isn't it strange how baby's necks can turn?

I made an old recipe of ours, black bean and cream cheese enchiladas.

This must be because no one ever takes pictures of me.

Meadow and Theo did some tummy time. I have to admit I haven't been doing it as much with Theo. He just screams whenever I put him on his stomach.

That's probably why.

Okay okay I will pick you up.

Scott suggested going out for brunch buffet for Mother's Day. I said I would rather spend the money on some new clothes. So for the rest of the day I made Meadow a Wonder Woman crown.

She loved it so much.

Her new crown inspired us to play some more superheroes.  

Then we ended our day watching Dumbo. Every week we check out a Disney movie from the library. We hope to watch all of them.

Meadow was way more excited about this than this picture would make you think.

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. We could have easily gotten another pint in there. As I was taking Meadow to the bathroom I noticed the raspberries looked really good. We decided at $5 a pint we would onl

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
