Farmer's Market and Light Rail Fall Fun

We had to make it to the farmers market for one last trip this year. It's sad no one really goes anymore, but at least there's easy parking.

The last visit is often one of the best. Good prices and the crowds are nonexistent.



The kids each picked a little pumpkin.

Meadow need a circle. Theo was the perfect paper weight.

Theo has been obsessed with jack o lanterns. Every time he sees one he wants to go by it and look at it.

It's starting to get to me, but it's so cute.

This is the first weekend in a long time where we aren't going anywhere, we don't have any guests and no plans. We asked Meadow what she wanted to to do this weekend and she said take the light rail. 

So a ride on the light rail we did.


Theo looks like he likes the ride, but he wouldn't sit still. He kept wanting to walk around.

It's a long ride. Can't blame him.

Since we were going on the light rail we decided to go to the children's museum. We hadn't been in a while. 

We forgot how buys it gets on weekends.

The best time to go is on a Friday or Saturday after 5. Everyone starts to clear out.


Oh yeah, I cut my hair.

It's really cute on her.

Theo loved the four and under room.

Meadow and Brooke went down the slides while we stayed back.

We'll have to take him back again on his own.

He did not want a bib. Goof.

Meadow's favorite is the rock climbing area.

You get to be featured on a big TV.

Theo likes the water exhibits.


I was getting hungry, so we made our way out of the museum.

It was late and we we never had lunch. Of course we had to go to Mickey's Diner next door. The booths were all full so we sat at the counter. Meadow later told me she liked sitting here better so she could watch the cook.

I'm with you Meadow.

Theo was an old pro at the counter.

The cook was impressed by our well behaved children. They get a lot of the Children's Museum crowd.


That's me digging in and making sure Theo doesn't knock down our shake.

I'd never ordered their fried chicken. It was crispy and juicy. 10/10 I'd order it again.

Then back on the light rail.

Notice Theo not sitting next to me.

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
