Great start to the wknd...not!

Happy Friday!  My day started off swell; except that I realized I forgot the main part of my lunch, left over pulled pork, in the fridge.  I have a bun; but not meat…don’t you hate when that happens??

This weekend we’re headed up to Wisconsin to go to the family cabin of our friend’s who got married in October.  I absolutely love spending time with this couple and now they’re living in Iowa City for her job, so since we don’t get to see them often, Ben and I are both looking forward to some quality time with the four of us.  Well, make it five.  They’ve graciously told us to bring Oscar with.  I told her we couldn’t confirm the date until we checked with the boarder for Oscar and her response was “bring him with, it wouldn’t be the same without him to entertain us”, so yay! 

Plus, on the way back we’re going to stop in Milwaukee to see the kids from our wedding/that I babysit.  I haven’t been to their condo since a birthday party in 2010 (I think) and since then they’ve bought the third unit on the floor (so now they own 3 units on the floor, which means they own the entire floor).  The third unit used to be owned by a Milwaukee Brewers Player; yep that’s how insane ONE condo is, let alone owning three.   A portion of the third condo was turned into a gym with a stage for the kids to use as their playroom; so obviously Ben and I are pretty anxious to see what this all looks like…plus, obviously to see the family!

Little does Ben realize, there’s also the Pleasant Prarie Outlet Mall that I’m going to try to get us to stop at on the way home too :O)

PS- Does anyone else feel like they need this outfit from J Crew??

Although the skirt is actually long, I wish it were a mini!
(Although who am I kidding, I still couldn't afford to pay that
much for an impractical pink sequin mini anyways :O)


  1. Haha--it's always very difficult for me to convince my H to stop at the outlets when we drive to and from MKE. Have fun!

  2. Ha, I know! I think I'm going to have to volunteer to drive and then just take the exit :p. Thanks!
