Our First Kingfield Farmers Market Sunday at the New Place

Since Brooke went back to work, I've been snuggling with these two every morning. Even with Brooke off the for the weekend, I couldn't help myself.

Theo loved looking at himself in the mirror one day so I brought it down again for him.

I made some big pancakes and tried making mine in a wok. None of them rose up this time, but mine had a wonderful eggy texture.

The key is to mix everything together right before adding it to the hot pan.

The other day I tried putting Theo in the bike trailer with the stroller attachment on. He fits pretty good, but no biking quite yet. We had to walk to the farmers market in neighboring Kingfield, so we used the stroller attachment.

We had wanted to use an infant seat in the trailer to take him for bike rides, but with the seat in there his little feet stick out.

I am really loving how walkable our new neighborhood is. Once Theo can go for bike rides we won't be using our car much except for long trips.

There wasn't much produce; likely because of the long winter. We got some bacon and eggs instead of a bunch of produce.

And some radishes.

We were walking back when Meadow saw the playground at MLK Park. I thought we should let our little rascal play for a bit.

It was actually chilly.

Our new place (I guess we've lived here 5 months, so it's not that new) has Peonies. They had already bloomed and started withering away, so I gave a few to Meadow.

Then Brooke organized the garage while I put on Brooke's new rear rack.


We've been cooking meals from the Symmetry Breakfast cookbook. It had been going pretty well until I attempted the kimchi tempura, but it failed miserably. The rest of the meal, Moco Loco, reminded me of an asian beef stroganoff. 

This book is great. All breakfast foods for this breakfast lover. 

The reason I had put racks on our bikes is that we got a Yepp Maxi Easyfit. I had planned on getting a Maxi Nexxt, which fits directly on most bike racks, but we're planning on getting a Yuba at some point. Yepp Maxis fit directly on their rack.

Anyways, long story short. We got this Yepp Maxi on Craiglist with two EasyFit adapters. I installed them, and after bit of troubleshooting, I was ready to take Meadow for a ride. She was so excited to ride around the block "in the street."

We really got this for Theo, but since he can't use it until he's 9 months old Meadow gets it for awhile. 

After Brooke and Meadow went for a ride, I put the Yepp back on my bike and we went for a little bike ride to Sebastian Joe's.

It's so easy to switch the seats to a different bike. I wish we had known about this when Meadow first started riding. 

We now live closer to the Linden Hills Seb Joe's. That means biking around Lake Harriet and up a few of said hills.

We are near so many ice cream shops that are walking or biking distance. Our old neighborhood only had Dairy Queen in the nearest suburb. 

And we were there.

Meadow wanted to eat at the shop, but I told her calmly that we had a cone for her at home.

And I delivered on that promise.

Money DOES Buy Happiness

I got a wake up call when I realized all the loans I took out for school actually went for school. I'm only working part-time at Menards now which is just enough to pay the rent and bills. My phase of being poor wasn't really a phase, but actually permanent. I took out another loan so I would have extra cash to feed me (being poor is the best diet). I won't see that money for another month which means no time off for a Christmas break. I have to wait a few more days to find out if I even get Christmas Eve off. This is by far the sadest Christmas ever for me. It doesn't even feel like Christmas. Only one house on my street put lights up, I'm used to everyone in my whole town putting up lights. Plus we don't have a tree or any decorations and we haven't had any snow yet. I did get a Christmas present from Menards, 55 dollars in Menards money and this. In two weeks someone I love and care about very deeply will be in London for 5 months and I only get to s

Over the River & Through the Woods to Grandmothers House We Clean

My mom had wanted us to come down to my grandparents home to clean for months. Unfortunately a busy summer had kept us away. We finally made it a week after our honeymoon ended. We slept at my parents home in Cudahy before heading down to Racine. We got home from our trip on Tuesday and left for Milwaukee on Thursday. It was almost like an extended vacation. Before leaving the cities we stopped and had dinner at Foxy Falafel. It was pretty good and I like that she uses sprouted chickpeas.  I never knew my grandparents on Poppyseed Tuska's side so Grandma and Grandpa Wojcik were a special part of my life. They both passed away last year after living nearly 90 wonderful years.  Their home was always a wonderfully warm and inviting place. The perfect place to spend your Christmas Eve in front of a fire place. Since it's going to be sold, Brooke and I took on the massive task of organizing and cleaning the home. When Scott told me his mom wanted us to c

Honeymoon: Did Someone Say Fudge? How to Avoid the 57 Fudge Shops on Mackinac Island

We had to wait an hour but we made it onto the next ferry. I couldn't keep my eyes off the Mackinac Bridge. One of the Star Line Ferries actually passes under it. Next time we go to Mackinac, probably with kids, we'll have to drive over it.
