i'm home..... five pounds heavier...

Hiiiiiiiiiii! I've missed you! I'm back from my amazing weekend with my college girlfriends. It feels great to be home, in my pjs, cuddling with Gus and catching up on your lives (through your blogs of course) but I loved every minute in Milwaukee.

In looking back at my pictures, apparently I took more of the food I ate than of me with my friends. Whoops. What can I say... I'm a girl from Wisconsin. We like our food fried, cheesy, and keep 'em coming.

We started the weekend by giving our sweet Erin a wee little baby shower since we couldn't make her official ones. She bawled at the clothing line of girls clothes. (always a hit!)
We spent the next day walking around Milwaukee.... first shopping (of course) and then hit the Zoo since they were having a 'Taste of...' of sorts where all the best restaurants were set up in the zoo for our consumption. OH. MAN. It was good. I won't list what I ate.... it's horrifying but here are a few pictures from our day.
The best, however, were fried cheese curds that night. (Don't judge) I have been dreaming of them for the last few months. They lived up to any and all expectations.
We wrapped up our weekend with a walk on the lake front, picnic in the park, and amazing dinner at Erica's favorite Italian restaurant in Milwaukee. I now present you with the 'Big Ass Canoli Martini' I think the picture speaks for itself.
Again, apologies for all the food pictures. Apparently I was really excited about what I was eating. Now I need to get excited about getting what I ate OFF my body.
Happy Monday!
PS - Don't forget about the giveaway! Ends tomorrow evening!!
