Our annual trip to The Great Minnesota Get Together last Sunday was hot, humid, sometimes cloudy, sometimes sunny, and darn crowded by two in the afternoon, but who even cares when the smells of deep-fried everything are wafting through the air? The food!…
Our annual trip to The Great Minnesota Get Together last Sunday was hot, humid, sometimes cloudy, sometimes sunny, and darn crowded by two in the afternoon, but who even cares when the smells of deep-fried everything are wafting through the air? The food! OH the food. The summer desire of my heart. We ate and …

Darrin and I spent yesterday afternoon downtown at Brit’s Pub watching our beloved team Arsenal tie with Liverpool for their third Premiere League match. We found ourselves a corner table, ordered a side of “chips” to share, and imagined that we were somewhere in downtown London for the 90+ minutes of the game. Minneapolis’s blustery …

My not-so-baby of a baby sister is moving back to college this morning to start the last year of her undergraduate career. We said our goodbyes last night and thought that we might as well snap a handful of sister selfies to document the occasion. Because that’s what smart phones are all about, Charlie Brown. …

One of the trees outside our apartment window has begun to turn from green to yellowish-green, and I’m counting this color change as an official sign that fall is coming. I nearly bought a bottle of pumpkin spice creamer from the grocery store to…
One of the trees outside our apartment window has begun to turn from green to yellowish-green, and I’m counting this color change as an official sign that fall is coming. I nearly bought a bottle of pumpkin spice creamer from the grocery store to celebrate, but Darrin grimaced at the idea before deeming my “Fall Fever” …

Darrin and I crossed some sort of symbolic threshold in our marriage the other evening. We were at the grocery store, trying to determine what to bring to our friend’s dinner party, when we both looked at each other and said, “How about a vegetable tray?” Now, I don’t mind a good vegetable tray now …

Darrin and I did all that we could to avoid becoming Those People when it came to beer. I’m sure you’re well aware of Those People. Those People who snub their noses at beer that looks (and sometimes tastes) as clear as water. Those People who choose to…

I woke up the other morning with a monstrous headache that felt like my eyeballs were somehow burying their painful way into the back of my skull, and my sweet but medically minded husband diagnosed me on the spot: caffeine withdrawals. We’re out of coffee, here at the Beekman residence, and my gosh we’ve only …

Monday! The start to the last full week of August, and Darrin and I feel like we’ve spent most of August trying to figure out how July went by so fast. And now BAM. September. Like a cold smack of wind the face (see photo above). But onward and upward, as…

Floppy fall hats like this one from Old Navy make me wish that I was taking off on some cruise, leaning over the boat railing and waving goodbye with my floppy red hat to those left along the shoreline. Big boats seem to always pair nicely with big hats.…

Monday! This Monday marks the end to what was one incredibly busy weekend for us here on the Minneapolis home front. We hosted an eight-person Mario Kart tournament in our tiny two-person apartment, celebrated family birthdays, mingled at a family reunion, and sweated through nine innings of a humid baseball game. So hey there, Monday! …

You know you’re having a good start to your August when you’ve spent two out of the past four August nights visiting the local ice cream shops. Izzy’s Ice Cream is just a hop, skip, and a jump across the Stone Arch Bridge; Wilde Roast Cafe (and their…
You know you’re having a good start to your August when you’ve spent two out of the past four August nights visiting the local ice cream shops. Izzy’s Ice Cream is just a hop, skip, and a jump across the Stone Arch Bridge; Wilde Roast Cafe (and their amazing salted caramel gelato) is just down the street. …

Just a poor, married, graduate student living on love and Hamburger Helper in the heart of Minneapolis.
