A Late Fall Bike Ride

We needed to go grocery shopping, but luckily we had some pancake mix leftover from our camping days.

We used our Nordic Ware pancake pans that feature funny shapes. You might be able to spot an emoji or three.

Meadow cleaned the living room so she could watch tv. She did this without asking, which was sweet, but we had plans.

Today was supposed to be in the 40's. I figured this was our last day to get in a bike ride. By the time Snow White got ready, we were ready to go.

I thought Brooke was crazy wanting to ride bikes, but I wasn't going to get any rides in any time soon.

When the sun came out it felt warm.

We decided to bike over to Minnehaha Falls and hike around there.

We made it all the way to falls and temp suddenly dropped.


It was a lot colder at this point and we were now ready for lunch.

We let the kids play first.

I let the kids play and Brooke begrudgingly agreed.



Poor little brother.

She would not stop.


Has to do everything Meadow does.

We decided to eat at Fat Lorenzo's and headed that way.

Meadow was ready for some 'za.

Theo suddenly decided he was too big for the high chair.

We drew pictures while waiting for our pizza pie.


I forgot how good their pizza is.

Big floppy crust is so underrated these days.

I had originally thought we'd bike over to St. Paul and get some ice cream over at Izzy's, but we never made it there. Meadow was sad about that, so she got some super chocolaty gelato at Fat Lorenzo's.

We headed back just before dark and watched Wreck It Ralph on Disney +.

Not a bad Fall day.

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

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.

Broken Bones and Labor Day

As you can see I am wearing a sling. Why you ask? Well it all started Thursday morning when I being the nice person that I am decided to help out Scottie and his roomates move into their new house. Everyone had gone back to their old house to get more stuff and I stayed behind to finish unpacking things out of my car. I was walking back to my car and thought it would be faster if I went in between a trailer and a van. Being the clumsy person that I am I somehow tripped in the process, ripping my jeans as well. Not thinking I had broken my arm I continued to carry things into to the house. My arm did hurt a little, but I thought it was no big deal. I had to leave for work. When I got home I noticed a huge bump on my elbow, I became worried at this point and called my mom. She said it was probably just bruised. I put ice on it as I was driving, when I got to the mall I saw the bump had gotten bigger. I was really concerned now so I thought I would go to first aid and see if someone the
