Friday night we went down to my parents farm, camped out, and spent Saturday enjoying the farm. From roasting marshmallows to riding the four wheeler, and bailing cornstalk bails, there’s always something fun to do on the farm. It all started with a camp fire. My brother and dad build us a nice fire so […]
We live outside the city because of views like this from our backyard. We see trees, not houses, we have a large yard for our daughter to run around in, and we have the ability to look up at night and see stars. It is quiet, it is spacious, and it is beautiful.
I’ll admit it, I’m not the most handy person. I like to think I am, but quite a few things are over my head, or I just haven’t tried them yet. However, I’ve been able to add a few new things to my handyman list. When we moved into our new house, the first thing we […]
I was pretty bummed out when Amazon closed all the Minnesota affiliate accounts last year. I didn’t make a lot of Amazon, but $10 here, $10 there adds up and gave me a bit of spending money.

I’m all for a good prank, but I’m not a fan of April Fools day. Most of the pranks aren’t funny, some are just mean, and they are all forced upon us whether we want them or not. It could be a long crabby day.
I don’t exercise and I’m not in shape. I’ve tried going to the gym before, but it doesn’t last. I even joined the push-up club at work; well for a few weeks. However, now I’m trying the 7 minute workout. If you haven’t heard of it, the exercise program is 12 different exercises that work […]
A conversation with a Twitter friend over who’s going to win the Super Bowl when neither of us know who’s playing.
Today I took the day off and Christi and I took Lily to Nickelodeon Universe in the Mall of America to have some fun. We had unlimited ride wristbands and we were taking advantage of the day. Lily loved the rides. We went on quite a few junior rides as she is only 4, but […]
