Life Lately

I have a long backlog of photos to share, but I feel like I'm finally starting to catch up on all that we've been up to. Although November was a month ago, here's a quick peek at all that we were up to!


Rain, cold, snow... it doesn't matter - John insists that we walk everywhere we go! This is the first time that we have lived in a walkable area (since college), so any time we want to go to breakfast, coffee, the grocery store, etc. John insists we all suit up and walk there. Jack honestly doesn't seem to mind to cold, but his mama would much prefer to be warm. :) But hey, at least it keeps me moving throughout my pregnancy!

Snowy walks to breakfast and coffee at Caribou.

John has taken the dogs hunting in northern Minnesota several times this year, and boy, there is a ton of snow there! Scout lives for hunting so she doesn't even notice the snow (and in fact, I think she much prefers it to the heat), but little Lily gets a little cold and shivery if she gets too cold and wet.

After a long weekend of hunting, these two girls sleep for the next few day - which I absolutely love! The best kind of bird dog is a tired one...

One of my favorite things about our new home is the front windows... and they are one of Jack's favorite things too! That boy could look out the windows and front door all day long - and we have lots of little hand prints to prove it. :)

Jack and I recently made a trip to see John at work and get lunch downtown. Jack had fun exploring the skywalks and getting to say "hi" to all the people who were walking around for lunch!

Eating out with my favorite lunch date (other than his dad, of course).

My mom, aunt and I (and Jack) recently went shopping in Stillwater, and we had a great time exploring all the shops and getting lunch. ...and Jack discovered his love for wrapping paper (just like his mom!).


  1. These pictures are great! I can't believe the snow (and cold) though!! How do you keep warm at all?! It seriously baffles me lol

  2. I'm so jealous of all the snow! Send some to NC!!
