Date Nights

Since Jeremy’s been working so many hours, it’s been a little tougher to stick with our regular date nights, though we have done a pretty good job of being home together at least one evening a week. This week we happened to have two big date nights, out and about town! Tuesday we went to […]


Part of History

“It doesn’t get a whole lot better than this.With Brett Favre playing like a man time forgot, Mike McCarthy making all the right moves and Greg Jennings reminding everyone what they’ve been missing, the Green Bay Packers outlasted the San Diego Chargers on Sunday in one of the greatest games played at Lambeau Field in […]

We started our weekend at Maynard’s on Lake Minnetonka for dinner out […]

Let’s Dish!

Jodie had a gift certificate for Let’s Dish! from Christmas, so last night she and Jane and I went to try it out.  What a great idea!  We could quickly prepare meals that then are frozen and can be made at home quite easily.  We could choose menu items for 4, 8 or 12 meals […]
