Sweet Action Ice Cream

Sweet Action Ice Cream

Oh look, more photos from when we were on vacation in Colorado! I guess once we got home, no one ever did a photo dump from the camera. Anyhow, we were on a mission to visit all of the artisan ice cream places that we could find. This was Sweet Action Ice Cream, located in […]

Our marriage is of legal age

On October 3rd we celebrated our 18th wedding anniversary. Woah, 18 years! It seems like it was only yesterday that we were on our honeymoon in Door County and I was standing on a street corner in Fish Creek, looking at my husband out of the corner of my eye and realizing that he was […]

Mountain climbing: Rosalie Peak

While we were in Colorado we attempted to climb a mountain by taking Tanglewood Trail towards Rosalie Peak. We lost the trail about 2.5 miles up and while we had many GPS gadgets, we didn’t have a map. So we turned around at 10,841′ because I was not about to have a Blair Witch Project […]

Thursday 13: 13 days after the car accident

I am 13 days post car accident and feeling much better. Part of that is because I can see that the end is near, and part of that is because my ears stopped ringing about a week ago. Yesterday the insurance company finally had an adjuster look at the car and they have officially totaled […]

Vader Vacation has a dramatic ending

  It’s Tuesday and we returned from our vacation on Sunday night. I don’t even know where to begin, honestly, I don’t.

Vader Vacation: Colorado bound

We drove from Wisconsin to Colorado on Saturday morning in a straight shot. We left at 2:44 am which means by about 8 am I NEEDED coffee. Thankfully, there was a Starbucks exactly 2.4 miles away from where we had breakfast in Newton, Iowa. That is a painting on the side of a building, impressive […]

The time we stayed at Devil’s Head Resort

We live about 104 miles from Devil’s Head Resort in Merrimac, WI, which is where we were staying when we ran the Dances With Dirt Half Marathon a few weeks ago. I chose this hotel based the following: Camping as a kid has scarred me for life and have ZERO plans to ever sleep in […]

Cat on a hat

Does the Tooth Fairy visit kitty cats?

This is The Boog, his official name is Jasper, and he’s got a toothache. On Wednesday I took him to the vet to get his tooth checked out. He was very interested in the view out the window. He weighs 8 pounds, which isn’t surprising, he’s a tiny cat. Like, miniature kitty. If he was […]
