Lay it on me people. Three hour car trip with a 7 month old and a two and a half year old. How is this going to go? What do I need to bring? DVDs? New toys? Benadryl? Lots and lots of Benadryl. Just kidding on the last one. But it all seriousness, any tips you have would be greatly appreciated. We are embarking on our annual family vacation to the Wisconsin Dells. A week of swimming, sun, adventures, laughing with family and, of course, cheese. I mean it is Wisconsin. [Read more…]
Have you ever been to one of those small plates, fancy shmancy restaurants? You know the ones I am talking about. The ones that think food is a piece of art and that 15 small bites served one plate at a time over the course of 15 hours for the mere price of $500 is what you, the diner, really wants. Well, forgive me, but I don’t think I am your kind of clientele. If I am spending $500 on something I would rather it be an entire new wardrobe or plane tickets to somewhere other than here. I will take my food cheap, ugly, and greasy. Paper plates or bowl? Yeah! Bring it on!
Also, most people I know go to those places for dinner and then end up going to a real food restaurant shortly after for a giant cheeseburger. If that were me, I would have just gotten the cheeseburger to start off with and, if I wanted to spend more money, I would spend it on a few fancy beers.
But, it is all about the experience, right? I mean that’s what people say. Once in a lifetime.
Can we talk about how annoying the phrase, “When it rains it pours” is? Like seriously! Number one, why does it have to rain in the first place, let alone pour? And yeah, yeah, yeah, I know rain allows beautiful things to grow and us to appreciate happy times. Blah, blah, blah. Is it possible to just maybe have a light drizzle as opposed to a full on torrential down pour? Maybe with a little rainbow at the end? [Read more…]
Well. It is confession time people. I know most of you have just moved on from Halloween and have maybe started planning your Thanksgiving dinner menu. I have given a teeny thought to Thanksgiving. I mean enough thought to make this warm salad and plan a giveaway for you guys. I also might bring a dessert to my in-laws dinner. My normal go-to is this cheesecake pie. But, seriously, that is all the thought about Thanksgiving I have done. [Read more…]
Summer is all about adventures. My five year old niece told me a few weeks ago, “It’s summer, Aunt Stefanie. You should come over any day because, like, every day we are going on so many adventures.” This mentality works out perfectly in our house because I have two antsy pants’ who cannot sit still. I am clearly talking about Mike and Andy. Weezer is my soul mate because we could sit on the couch all day…clearly it is not him!
Every morning Mike asks me, “So what are we doing today?” And every morning I roll my eyes and try to rack my brain for something to do. [Read more…]
