I’m packing up, grabbing the big grey dog and heading to Chicago this weekend for a shower with my hometown friends and family. I am so, so excited to see everyone and hopefully they’re not too bummed to miss out on green beer…
Catch you next week!

One thing is certain: our house is not ready for two babies to arrive. BUT, we’re doing our best and after the next couple weekends of baby showers I’m sure we’ll feel a lot more prepared, potentially a bit overwhelmed and definitely perplexed as to how two small humans can require so much stuff. If I had to guess, I think we’ll also be feeling insanely lucky and loved. I’ve got two showers this weekend and another next weekend so the fun is just getting started! See you on the other side, friends.

I’ve become a person that wears slippers at home 90% of the time. I’m going to go back a few generations and blame my grandpa for the influence. He always wore his ‘slip slips’ around the house and I think he was definitely onto something.

For some reason my sister is spending her free weekend driving to Minnesota to paint, spackle, assemble baby stuff and put up with our chaos. Not quite sure what’s wrong with her but I sure am thankful!

This weekend brings a milestone birthday for a very special lady in my life so the family is packing up our winter gear and heading to Wisconsin for a good ol’ fashion get together! I’ve packed board games, extra layers, snacks, movies, some books and maybe some nonalcoholic wine (cheers!). I’ll catch you after our valiant return!

We’ve reached the time of year where I feel the need to post a tree photo as often as possible. It just feels right and I refuse to fight it. Do your weekend plans involve a Christmas tree? The only Christmas tree I’m worrying about this weekend is a gingerbread one. I’m building a gingerbread house with some cousins! I’ll likely eat more candy than help but it will be a blast nonetheless. Whatever you’re up to, have a great time, friends!

The tree at our home has been lit for a week already but we had a other very important trees to tend to this past weekend in Chicago. For over 20 years my family and I have spent the Saturday after Thanksgiving making ornaments out of birdseed, marshmallow, peanut butter, oranges, and more and then decorating a couple trees (one large, one small) at my dad’s cemetery. It’s easily one of my favorite traditions of the season and I’m so glad we were able to make the trip again this year. Hope those critters are feasting well right about now!

Anyone else readyyyy for this long weekend? My mom and sister are heading north for the weekend and we’ve got tons of options to keep us busy for a few days. State Fair? Lake Minnetonka? Farmer’s Market? Walker Sculpture Garden? The world is our oyster! I’m soaking up every second of this last summer weekend so I’ll catch you next week for our regular scheduled programming. Have a safe and happy holiday, friends!

After a week at home the Red Head and I are loading up the car for another family adventure. Our destination this time? Door County. Bring on the cheese, wine, nephew cuddles, beach time and family dinners. It’s going to be a wild few days!

After a wild week of house projects, late nights, early mornings and a dash of stress the Red Head and I are heading to Myrtle Beach for his annual family vacation! We’ll be soaking up the sun, swimming in the ocean (I’m the only one that ever goes in the water!), reading books, riding go karts (Red’s request) and checking out the sites before we’re back next week. I’ll see you then. Have a wonderful weekend!
