road trip + weekend

My brother moved to Illinois this week, and we've been planning a quick trip out to visit him and see him get installed at his new church for a year-long vicarage. Q is staying here for training exercises on base, so I'll be riding along with my parents and already have my bag stocked with new books from the library (very excited about this! ha).

My brother is a grad student living on his own for the first time (no more cafeteria food), so I've been helping him get started and figure out grocery shopping, etc. It's really fun because I finally have someone willing to listen to me ramble on about coupons, bargain shopping, and weekly meal planning.

I've started putting together a care package box for him with basic goods like paper towels and cereal, to save him from buying it at the pricey grocery store there (the only one within 30 miles of his small farm town). Cannot wait to give it to him and see his tiny apartment! Hope you have a great weekend.

What church will your brother be at?

Randomly, I am from Illinois and my husband and I got married (and attended) a Lutheran Miss. church in Chicago!

Have fun...and if you have any questions as to what to do or where to eat, let me know! Happy weekend!

Hey Stephanie, he is in Buckley but I dont't recall the name of the church yet!

Hi Jillian, most of the books are shown above...weekend sewing, printing by hand, and martha's sewing encyclopedia. All very good so far.

What a great sister you are! If he can't make it to the grocery store that often, tell him to buy a giant jar of peanut butter. It's filling + you can put it on just about anything, for any meal/snack. ;)
