Donut Walks are the Best Walks

Smoothie face cutie.

This kid gets in so much trouble, but he's darn cute.

Another snowstorm rolled through our parts. Unlike most Minnesotan's I wasn't surprised to see another one this winter.

It snows, like, every April, folks.

Our first stop was donuts at Bogart's, but we weren't sure if they'd have anything left.

Did we make it before the doughnuts sold out?

I guess we made it.

They must be making more because there never is this many at this time of the day.

Brooke was clearly happy to have her pick of donuts.

Of course Meadow picked sprinkles, but the donut started falling apart along the walk.

Next we walked over to Uptown.

Little buddy was getting sleepy.

We walked into Papersource because I thought Meadow would dig it.

 I knew she'd love this store.

We also went to CB2 to look at some couches and beds. Maybe this year will be the year we get adult furniture.

Meadow really wanted this mirror. The circle one in the pink rock.

Hint, hint, Aunt Jen.

We also stopped in H&M. Meadow got a different dress and I got a sweater.

The main reason for our walk was to go the library. 

Even with no stairs in our unit Theo is an old pro at getting up and down them.

Yup.

We went to Sotarol for lupper. I'd had the food truck before, but no one else had been here.

Meadow was excited to read her new books.

My sushi burrito was so good.

Still reading.

Meadow's shrimp fried rice was so good.




When we were walking back I saw that Mohn Electric was closing. How sad.

They helped us build our chandelier in our old house.

Lately Meadow has been asking for a pet. I found my old Tamagotchi while looking for something else and thought it would be perfect for Meadow.

One of our neighbors messaged me and asked if Meadow wanted a chicken suit. I said yes and picked it up.

Mending, movies and popcorn.

A few days later the weather warmed up and most of the snow melted. 

So, we went for a family bike ride.

Gotta love biking with the kiddos and this gal.

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

A Lovely Day

The time change didn't really affect me and I got up at my normal time. To Scott it meant sleeping in even later. While he was still asleep I worked on our meal planning and grocery list. Once I finally got up we were both ready to go grocery shopping. Brooke even had all the bags packed.   We tried to figure out somewhere to eat brunch. We had decided Bad Waitress when we remembered that the Lowry Cafe has breakfast and we hadn't been there in a long time. Brooke ordered the corned beef hash special. I got the mighty big Jordan breakfast. I was full for the rest of the day.  We mostly shop at the Seward Co-op even if it's halfway across town. Once the Lowry Bridge reopens we'll likely go to the Eastside Co-op more often. Via bike.  As always ,Brooke writes our dinner list on the chalkboard. According to Sprout Robot this week it's time to start tomato seeds. I like that their instructions come with little drawings.

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
