The Friday 5+

Olympics I love the Olympics! I love seeing the best athletes kick ass. I love seeing people who have had to fight to get back to the level they once competed at. I love the opening ceremony with every team wearing matching outfits. And I love seeing countries represented that I’ve never heard of before. […]

It’s Friday. Here’s where I found joy this week. Art Shanty Project (Round 2) We visited the Art Shanty Project for the second weekend in a row. It was snowing and cold but such a fun way to embrace the Bold North. And it’s nice to take the dogs somewhere besides the dog park. Focus […]

Another Year, Another Birthday…and Goals!

With the new year comes a new birthday. I’m sure you’re thinking ‘well duh’. But mine is on January 9 so it’s pretty close to the start of a new year. I don’t make a big deal about my birthday. I don’t have a big party. I don’t celebrate all month long. I try to […]

Skol! The Vikings win against the New Orleans Saints last Sunday is still being talked about. Minnesota doesn’t have a great playoff record so the fact they won in such a spectacular fashion didn’t go unnoticed. I actually turned the channel right before the game winning play. I thought ‘this is so like the Vikings.’ […]

It’s a brand new year but what if I liked the old one?!

Happy 2018. It’s a brand new year but what if I liked the old one?! Sometimes it’s hard to say goodbye. That’s where I’m at right now. I’m still holding on to 2017. A lot of crappy things happened in 2017. We elected Donald Trump, a man that takes to Twitter to talk trash people […]

Perks of Being Ordained

I am an ordained minister. Say what?! I bet you didn’t know that about me. Today I’m going to share some of the perks of being ordained. But first, let’s talk about how I got there. Several years ago on a Sunday morning, I was unmotivated to get out of bed and go to church.  […]
