Fantasy Football

ebb + flow :: do better

For the second year in a row, I’ve been roped into a Fantasy Football League with the Red Head and his co-workers. I’m, at best, a poor participant. Last week, I forgot to add a kicker to my lineup (apparently, this is a problem) and I told the Red Head ‘I’m going to do better.’ Here’s a public declaration to try and, at least, fill my entire lineup for the rest of the season. I’m all about little goals or should I say field goals? Ha!

ebb + flow :: paint time

Tomorrow! Tomorrow the Red Head and I close on our new house! It’s full of ugly tile, odd rooms, stained carpet and a bathroom that teleported straight from the 70s. Get excited to follow along as we make it ours, one paint stroke at a time.

ebb + flow :: dubai

Here’s a sentence I never thought I’d write: The Red Head and I just booked a trip to Dubai.

Huh? I’m just as shocked as you but when pals booked an around the world ticket that included some time in the incredible city we decided to crash their party! Any tips for staying cool in the desert in late August? I’m going to need them! More details to come as the big trip gets closer but the countdown is on! I’m pumped.

Chicago Bound

February 26, 2016

ebb + flow :: road trip

I’m clocking out a bit early today and hitting the road for Chicago! I’ll be there the next TWO weekends actually for various wedding activities and am pretty gosh darn excited. For this trip I’m bringing grey dog and the Red Head along so I’ll have some good company to help pass the time on the road. Them and, of course, some good snacks. I’ll try and catch you on Sunday for the wrap up and hope you have the best of weekends!

P.S. This is totally the type of hat/outfit I wear on the road. Ha!

Life Lately

February 22, 2016

ebb + flow :: life lately

The fact that the end of February is nearing has me in a tizzy. So much to do, so little time but we all know how that goes. I realized I hadn’t done a life dump (a la Instagram snaps) lately so I give you some recent scenes from my adventures and a little background on each:

ebb + flow :: gone

Goodbye, snowy Minnesota! Hello, Fort Myers Beach! Later this morning, the Red Head and I are skipping out of town with some pals for a long weekend of sunshine, cocktails, pool time and, I’m sure, some football (you can’t escape the Super Bowl no matter how far you travel!). We booked this trip so many months ago, I can’t believe it’s finally here. I’m hoping to truly unplug the next few days so no wrap up this week but I’ll be back mid-next week for more of the usual shenanigans. Have a good one, friends!

ebb + flow :: holiday at home

The next 36 hours are sure to hold a lot of excitement! There will be a Minnesota Thanksgiving feast, a late night shift at Mall of America, some shopping at midnight (gotta get those deals!) and a road trip to Illinois with the Red Head and puppy in tow. Once there, we’ll have continued Turkey Day celebrations with friends and family so, it’s safe to say, we have a lot to be thankful for! I’m going to take the next few days to soak it all in so ebb + flow will be radio silence until then. I hope you’re able to unplug a bit and kick of the holiday season with loved ones near and far!

Good Thoughts.

November 6, 2015

ebb + flow :: good thoughts

This date has been circled on the Erickson calendar for far too long. Early this morning the Red Head had some much needed shoulder surgery. Send good vibes for a speedy recovery, patience for me (my mom is the nurse, not me!) and some cooperative wi-fi because we’ve got plenty of Netflix to keep us busy. Catch you Sunday!

Triumphant Return

October 16, 2015

ebb + flow :: ISU

This photo is a *few* years old but I just had to bust it out of the archives because the Ericksons are making their triumphant return to Ames this weekend for the Iowa State/TCU game! I can’t remember the last time I was in town for a visit and I know for sure the last time I tailgated was as a student. Let’s hope I’ve still got it and can muster up the energy for a wrap up on Sunday. See you then!
