A Minneapolis Farmers Market Visit and Not Much Else

Since having a farmers market in our neighborhood we haven't been to the big Minneapolis one all summer.

Meadow's also been getting braver at paying for things she wants.


We missed you Minneapolis Farmer's Market.

We picked up a lot of things on this trip.

We start every summer and fall grocery run by getting produce from one of the farmer's markets. Now that I had all the veggies we would need for more than a week I could figure out our meals for the next week or more.


One of the things we picked up at the market was this giant donut.

Meadow wanted her own and complained the whole way home. Once we were home she all about a piece of the big donut.

Theo was mad that he didn't get any. We ate the whole thing in one sitting.

Meadow and I decided to have a little daddy-daughter craft time. We did some watercolors together.

Then we bummed around the house all day.

I think Meadow and Theo watched Toy Story 2 for the fifth time in a a few weeks.

Little buddy loves when he does get to eat.

For dinner we had BLTs from our farmer's market finds.

We ended the night watching Toy Story 3.

I thought we'd never seen this one, but it turns out Brooke and I had watched years ago. At least Meadow was super excited about it.

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
