Life Lately | November 2018

Another month down and one left in 2018. This month has been as packed as the rest this fall and going into the winter my schedule is about to get worse. I don't think starting next year I will be doing these life lately posts anymore. And the number of blog posts I put out are going to be a lot less at least for the first two months while I'm doing a major project for work.…

Life Lately | September 2018

Is it really fall? Finally! I was getting so sick of summer. It's been so hot that you couldn't really do anything anymore. But now that's it's fall, I'm so excited to just enjoy the outdoors again. Also only one more month until Halloween, my favorite season ever!…

Life Lately | July 2018

This week started out with Pixie's fifth birthday, it's insane to think my little puppy is half way through her life or so. Which I'm kind of sad about, but she's my best friend so it was fun to celebrate her birthday. She got to have full run of the plush toy drawer that belongs to Winnie, which was something she really loved. I also gave her a spoonful of peanut butter with her favorite treat in the middle. Which is had a lot of fun with since the peanut butter was cold from being in the fridge beforehand. And it was a little hot outside so I'm sure that made it even better.…

My Week in Review

This last week, I’ve been touring various apartments both in downtown Minneapolis and out in the suburbs. And I grew up out of the city in the suburbs… and it’s going to stay like that. For several reasons: More apartment for less money. More utilities are covered, somehow I can’t…

My Week in Review

This last weekend I babysat my cousins two daughters. Now I didn't spend any of my teenage years babysitting like most people. There were no kids in my neighborhood, all my cousins may be older but they were in college, and my mom's friends didn't have kids. So there was no one to babysit and back then there wasn't an online site to offer your services. Now I took the course back then but I just never did anything with that certificate. So babysitting is a bit new to me. I've babysat one of girls before when she was one and a half... but never two. So this past weekend was a first. One of them is three and a half & the other is one and a few months. It was a lot of fun but my goodness are they a handful especially at bedtime. One had a cold and was teething so she was not happy about bed time, while the other was missing her parents and couldn't sleep with her sister crying in the other room. Luckily, we managed to get them to fall asleep.…

Life Lately | June 2018

Where did this month even go? It has just flown straight past us it seems like. I've been busy doing a lot of projects for at work and trying to find a place to move to in September. Since it's now finally the time where most places know if they are going to have open units when that time comes. And my search area is now limited to around Downtown Minneapolis. Is it the cheapest option? Not really but it's close to work, which is what I want at the moment. I'm tired of driving in traffic and the ever raising price of gas that is helping to destroy my budget. Granted I know it will be a small apartment and I could get a bigger one farther out of the cities and take a bus instead. But considering I've been living in a Harry Potter closet for almost a year, I think any size apartment will be plenty big for me.…

My Week in Review

When you read this, I am on vacation. I was supposed to be at a wedding right now in Montana for my big sorority sister... but due to car issues last month my travel expenses were destroyed so I couldn't make it to the wedding. Instead I'm spending the weekend around the state of Minnesota just having a bit much needed of me time. Plus Monday and Tuesday since I have those days off as well.…
