Happy Thanksgiving!!




We spent last Saturday afternoon wandering around a few antique shops in Minneapolis. While we managed to find a couple of fun Christmas gifts, this was the best thing we saw the whole day. Now if only we had $1200 to spare…

MN School: Duck, Duck, What?

We recently learned that Minnesotan’s play “duck, duck, grey duck” instead of “duck, duck, goose”. What? According to Wikipedia, Minnesota is the ONLY place this variation is played.

Sounds about right.

Late again…

In keeping with the theme of blogging well after things happen around here, I’m going to post a few pics from Halloween this year. For our annual party, Team┬áStein went as Wyldstyle, Emmet and the Piece of Resistance from the Lego movie.

For trick or treating on actual Halloween, Q went as Mike from Monster’s Inc.

All in all, Halloween 2014 was a success.

Where’s the beef?

I like to think that 99% of the time I’m awesome. 1% of the time I’m a complete idiot – we like to call that “spaghetti brain” and apparently it didn’t go away once I was un-pregnant. It is to blame for many a dumb moment for the past year. There was the time that I used cream of wheat instead of almond flour in muffins. That other time that I couldn’t remember how to do simple math. The day that I misplaced my glasses for 20 minutes before I realized that I was indeed wearing them. On my face.

And then there was the day a few weeks ago when I got sent to the store to buy steaks for dinner and came home with what I thought were 2 good-looking steaks but actually were 6 super-thin steaks intended for fajita making to go with our baked potatoes.

That’s what you get for sending a girl who hasn’t eaten beef in 3 years to pick out delicious steaks for dinner.
