Red Wing 4 Shoes

I was supposed to go to Lake City this weekend to shoot some fall 360s for their tourism board. We were going to stay at a hotel and then go to the Red Wing shoe sale after. The leaves weren't changing colors, so we ended up just making plans to go to Red Wing.

I needed new boots and Scott said I couldn't get the ones from Target because they'll fall apart. Meadow's eating a donut?

I suppose she is. Now that I think about these were from Lindstrom. I had picked some donuts at their famed bakery.

Theo's sad he didn't get a donut?

I'm sure he got some sweets.

Before we could go we had to change out our summer for our winter clothing.

We have one small closet that Scott and I share so we trade out clothes seasonally. All my sweaters and long underwear were in our winter clothing bin.

I'm knitting Theo a sweater for Christmas. Luckily he won't remember that I had to try it on him to make sure it's fitting.

Meadow's happy because she graduated from the 5-point harness to using a regular seat belt.

When we got there the line was much longer than last year. Every few people leaving were warning that pickings were slim.

I didn't find anything except a pair of winter hiking boots, which Brooke thought were hideous.

They didn't have my first two choices. I ended up finding these in the men's section. Scott's embarrassed because they're the same pair he got last year. 

They are nice looking I suppose.

Afterwards we decided to check out Red Wing Brewery for pizza and brewskis.

Apparently this is where everyone goes after the shoe sale.

I mean craft beer + Red Wing Boots = hipsters heaven.



Everyone here under 40 was wearing Red Wing boots and red flannel.

Meadow got her house brewed root beer.

 The beef and horseradish  pizza was killer and the beer was good. Probably come back just for the pizza that uses the spent grains from the brewing process.

Definitely coming back.

We talked about going apple picking again. Our trip to the boot sale took a lot longer than planned. Luckily we passed a sign for a farm selling apples.

We nearly ran out of gas, but we ended up with a bunch of apples.

We made one last stop before heading home to get things for our Halloween costumes. Can you guess what we're going to be?

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

A Few Thoughts to Pass the Time

I'm sitting at the library, my new hang out besides random coffee shops. Class isn't for another 2 hours and I've finished all my homework. There's a guy running across holding his pants up and rush hour is just setting in. I never realized how weird Minnesotians actually are until I saw American Idol last night. They were doing auditions in Minneapolis, which Randy liked to call Minnehopeless. I thought it was just the culinary students that we're weird at my school, but no it's the whole state. The majority of the people that I know here are not actually from Minnesota, only one that truely is seems ok to me. Maybe I'm just like them but I don't want to admit it. School is alright. It keeps me busy. I like that some classes only have 10 students. Everyone in my Nutrition class eats healthy and reads the ingredient list but me. At least I get to take home everything I make in my baking class. Summer seems so far away. I need to find a place to l

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.
