Now that we’re waking up to frost on the ground and snow flurries, I suppose it’s time for me to make some kind of post about fall.

We’ve been so, so busy settling into the routine of our jobs and trying to work friend/family time in there, I haven’t had time to update here as much as I’d like. Yes, it’s cliche for a blogger to come crawling back to their site claiming to have been “so super busy, guys,” but here we are.

So what’s been going on over in Big Rapids lately?

Bryan started his job at Yoplait a couple weeks ago and I’m pretty sure he likes it. He’s working second shift (about 3-11 p.m.) and he’s a team leader. He basically watches different production lines and makes sure nothing goes wrong, but from the sounds of it, things go wrong quite a bit more than you might expect. If you get a chance, ask him about the Gogurt line and how complicated it is to get that yogurt into those little tubes. He’s so full of Yoplait trivia now, it’s kind of like talking to an episode of Food Network’s “Unwrapped.” And Yogurt Wednesday is pretty much awesome. With all this calcium, we’re gonna have the strongest bones ever!

My job is going well. Even though covering things like sex abuse and murder gets to be a little depressing, it’s nothing that can’t be fixed with a bottle of wine at the end of the day (kidding! maybe…). But the cool part about my job is that it gets me out into the community to meet people. And Big Rapids people are awesome! There are so many nice people in this tiny little town.  Whodah known?

Other than that, we’re just chillin’ and getting ready for the onslaught of holiday marrymaking. Joy to the world!

The past few weeks are probably better summed up in photos, so here’s a slideshow. Thanks for reading!
