I have wanted to get some blogging done for a couple of days now. But Avery woke up with a fever on Saturday morning and has been crabby ever since. I have had a hard time getting much done while Jeremy has been at work. A paragraph here and there. It’s so hard getting anything done with a toddler climbing and crawling over you!
Without further ado: my weekend recap. Plus Monday. Bonus!
Saturday we got up bright and early (for a Saturday) and headed out to Chippewa Falls WI for a tour at the Lienie Lodge! Day drinking is my favorite. We were out celebrating my love, Elizabeth. It was her birthday this past Wednesday. Perfect reason to go and drink some beer from the source.
The tour was really cool. Since it was the weekend, none of the machines were operating. Our guide said it was nice because it was quiet enough that she didn’t need a microphone. But I think it might be cool to come during the week to see everything in operation.
After the tour we went in to the Lodge for a tasting. They had so many beers on tap. It was hard to choose the 4 to sample.
I had decided that I would sample things I might not be daring enough to buy at a bar or the store. But then they had these recipe card type things showing the mixes the bartender could make for you. Way to make my decisions more difficult!!
I think each mix was sampled by at least one person in our group. And I think we all had a tough time picking a favorite! I hope to go back sometime soon. Maybe in the fall when the seasonal beers change out.
Sunday I found these treasures in the paper.
I can not wait for the State Fair! We are going on Monday and I am using this guide to map out the day! And this Minnesota Explorer is awesome because it has everything listed that is happening in the fall. So I will have something to do every weekend, if I want. This heat wave is making me excited for the cooler weather. Plus, Caribou has their pumpkin drinks out. Yum!
Sunday afternoon we met up with my family at the pool. Avery still had a fever so she was crabby and didn’t have as much fun as she normally would have. But it was nice to get outside and in the sun for a little while.
Monday was a long day. Still dealing with Avery’s fever and crankiness. She has to be touching me at every second otherwise the tears would flow! It’s no fun feeling sick. Or teething. I don’t really know what’s going on.
But Monday night I was able to get out and get my hair cut. I always love the way I feel after getting a cut. So I took an awkward selfie.
I bought a new lipstick that I was nervous about. But I think I really like the color. And it didn’t dry out my lips either. So it’s a keeper.
I also got my Mug Swap 2013 package together. Ready to send out. If you follow me on Instagram, you got a peek at it. I know my partner doesn’t follow me there, but I have no idea who reads the blog, so I can’t post it here! I just hope she likes it!
I’m excited for a Blogger Happy Hour tonight. Excited and a little nervous. Still so many girls I only really know online. I feel like it’s the first day of school. I just hope everyone likes me. Or at least nobody hates me! Haha. I’m sure it will be a ton of fun.
I hope you all had a great weekend!
