I had the most amazing food and art experience a few weeks ago at Demi in Minneapolis. For months, I tried to get reservations to celebrate my baby sister’s birthday. Demi opens reservations for the following month on the first of the previous month. So on May 1st, I tried to get a reservation forContinue reading “demi: wc whitney menu w/ temperance pairing”
We may have been too ambitious in our travels this week. In one day, we went from a remote island in Indonesia (Bintin) back to Singapore (easily the most modern city I’ve ever visited) to Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia. It was good to finally rest in our very nice hotel room at the Hilton. TheContinue reading “Weekend in Kuala Lumpur”
What do you do when you have just under $2000 in airline credit? You tag onto a trip that your family is already planning to take. Of course, they got their tickets for $600 and I got mine for $1300.
Today I finalized my master bathroom. The first picture on the left was the original floor plan. I really wanted a bathtub even though I can’t remember the last time I took a bathtub. It’s 6.75′ by 15′. Also, I thought it would be worth it for resale. I realized that even with Aria claimingContinue reading “Master bath finalized”
How cute! I found this post that I never posted when I was first pregnant with Aria. It’s sad that I weigh more now than I did when I was nine months pregnant with either of my kids. I sure was a cute pregnant lady though.
Yesterday I drove by the house and saw that the first floor walls had gone up. It really gave me a good feeling for the dimensions of the house on the inside. The house is not a big house but I almost felt like it was a little bit too big for us. Maybe withContinue reading “We have walls!!!”
I returned from my vacation to see that the construction crew had put the main floor on the house. I was pretty excited to see this. I have to admit though that I’ve had only sleepless nights since I’ve been back and I’m not sure if it’s still due to jet lag or if it’sContinue reading “We have a floor”
On our second day, we set our sights on Bintin Island, a very rough 50 minute ferry ride from Singapore. I’ve never really experienced motion sickness at all until this ride. Confident it would be fun to hop on a boat to a remote island I was sadly mistaken. Once through immigration, we were quicklyContinue reading “Bintin Island”
I still can’t get over how time zones affect travel. It is amazing to me that I left MSP on 8/28 in the afternoon and it is now 8/30 in the morning, but when I talk to my kids at home, it’s still 8/29 in the evening. The photo below is out my window atContinue reading “Destination: Singapore”
About three weeks ago the foundation to my future home was poured. Three city sized lots were bought by Cornerstone Homes to build new homes in an established neighborhood. The city newsletter claims that new homes come few and far between. My house is the second one being built. I was interested in the middleContinue reading “Fresh start flow”
