Just Checking In

I'll bet some of you wondered if I'd fallen off the face of the earth! Thought I'd scoop you in on what I've been up to.

***I had a post scheduled for Funny Monday, but I failed to set the date correctly, so hopefully you found something else to smile about yesterday? :)

***Here's one photo hint of what Kendall and I have been up to the past two days:

***We visited U.W. Eau Claire and the University of Minnesota in preparation for college applications in the fall. Kendall liked both schools a lot but really loved the urban feel of U of M. We're keeping a detailed table of all of the pros/cons/etc. for each of the colleges we visit. Two down, two or three more to go!

***We took a wrong turn on the way home tonight and almost paid a visit to U.W. Madison, too, but we're saving that one for another time :)

***I made food (before I left) for Kyle to eat while we were gone, as well as for the road trip. (Mr.4444 was out-of-town, too.) For what it's worth, this--

was deemed "delicious" by the entire 4444 family. (click on the photo a couple of times to get to the source)

***Left home alone to fend for himself for two days, Kyle's amused his friends with this Facebook post:

Acknowledging my tendency to look inside the full fridge and see nothing to eat, mom made me a "stuff to eat" list before she left. I think I'll keep her around:

I found the follow-up comments amusing (and just so you know, "Kyle K" is not my Kyle):

I love that I got credit for being an amazing mom when, in fact, I was just trying to make sure the leftovers got eaten before they went bad. (Don't you hate that?!)  

***By the way, the iced coffee is from The Pioneer Woman and is yummy.

***Six hour of driving/riding in a car today....I'm ready to crash (in a good way...straight to bed). 

What have you been up to?

  1. I'm pretty sure when selecting a school, it is VERY important for Kendall to remember these things:

    1) Badgers beat Gophers

    2) Red and White are MUCH prettier colors than burgundy and yellow

    3) U of M is WAY colder than UW

    Nope - - - I'm not a BIT prejudiced.


Your 2 cents...
