Over the weekend, Joe ran his third (I think?) race of the season and Cece participated in her first mud run! Maybe it’s the Olympics that has gotten to me, but I felt so very proud of both of them. Joe might as well have been taking a walk in the park instead of doing… Continue reading Monkey Run!
Is this real life?? In the past few weeks, we’ve had a couple of changes around here. For one, the weather situation has seriously improved. However, this is March in MN so it would surprise no one if we got a blizzard this week. I think March is so wonderful and weird in that spring… Continue reading Saturday Morning
I’m slightly embarrassed to admit that after nearly 12 years of living in the Twin Cities, I have not been to the Science Museum of Minnesota. However, it’s never too late to right a wrong! So, this past Saturday morning we took the girls and met their cousins at the museum. Here’s a small collection… Continue reading Science Museum
Howdy! As per usual, another fun-filled weekend occurred and I haven’t been able to sit down and focus to properly document all the good times. So, let’s rewind to last weekend. Last Saturday, Cece had her second dance recital complete with cowgirl hat and sassy square dance moves. Again, I’m super proud of her for… Continue reading It’s a Wonderful Weekend!
Hi, all! Look how happy we are that we survived January! (You know, just to be in the middle of a big old blizzard now.) BUT we aren’t letting all this crazy weather get us down. It’s Thursday, but I feel like we are still coming off a great weekend. Joe did not have to… Continue reading Greetings from February!
Last week may have been the most relaxing week of winter. With Cece out of school, Christmas being over, and no more planned activities we got to finally just relax at home instead of running around and enjoy the snow that had finally fallen. As you can see, we took the girls sledding a few… Continue reading Sledding and Snowmen
What a holiday season it has been! I can’t believe tomorrow is Christmas (and I REALLY can’t believe my shopping is done and holiday cards are out.) Below is the second half of my alleged“12 Dates of Christmas.” Date #7: Christmas Tree Shopping! Ok, so we actually have a perfectly sized artificial tree at home.… Continue reading The 12 Dates of Christmas (Part II)
Last year, a few bloggers that I follow were writing their versions of the “12 Dates of Christmas.” Many were actually going on 12 Christmas-themed dates with their significant other during December and taking magazine-quality pics to include in their posts. I think it would be seriously impressive if Joe and I were able to… Continue reading The 12 Dates of Christmas (Part I)
Over the weekend, we attended a wedding for a couple of rock stars. My friend and former teammate Rachel married her Jeff over the weekend in a seriously rocking fashion. The ceremony was at the Loring Pasta Bar and the reception was at the Varsity Theater which set the stage for an evening of… Continue reading Love Rocks
The end of summer is easier to accept when it also means RENAISSANCE FESTIVAL! The food, the romance, the fairies… there’s definitely a treat for every member of the family in ye old world. We managed to attend recently and it was indeed a day of whimsy and delight. This post it but a teeny… Continue reading Our Favorite Time of Year!
