    Enjoying Summer

    This week I’m taking a break from my usual recipe of the week. I’ve been slacking a bit on the blog posts lately, and that’s simply because I’ve been out enjoying summer. Minnesota’s summers are short lived, and once you get out and feel the warm air you don’t want to go back inside. Our summer’s are around three months, but they can be a bit longer if you end up with a mild spring and/or fall. This season was one of those seasons (so far) and for the first time in a long time I’ve actually enjoyed the hot air and humid days. Because of that, my blog hasn’t…

My commute has gone down 50 percent since we moved and I have a ton more time in the mornings and in the evenings to get to the gym, get to the grocery store, and all…

    Getting Ready to Party

    Fall officially begins on September 23 this year; the autumnal equinox.  For the past two years now I’ve been attending my boyfriend’s seasonal parties with the fall party being the biggest and the best.  Jake and his friends have been having these parties for the past four years or so and they’re the highlight of the seasons.  We’re having the party a few days early and I get to be a little more hands-on with the planning (yes, I’m all giddy on the inside about it), and today Jake and I start cleaning up his house and I did some shopping for the items we need. I started searching a few week…
