Lambeau Leaps

November 26, 2013

The traditional third wedding anniversary gift is supposed to be leather. Admittedly, Bobby and I had no idea that was the case when we decided a late November trip to Chicago and Green Bay would be our gift to one another this year, but it ended up working out perfectly. Why? Because there is no […]

Birthday Boy

September 14, 2012

Although we broke the tradition of visiting McCormick & Schmick’s for Karen’s Bobby’s birthday this year, we still managed to have an amazing celebration.

Green + Gold: The Super Bowl Champions Soup

February 9, 2011

I know it’s Wednesday, but my euphoria is still lingering. The Packers won the Super Bowl!!!!!!!! It was an amazing weekend. The game was certainly a thriller and, as always, I enjoyed watching the commercials. There were a few that I wasn’t a fan of (er…Groupon) but a lot that I really appreciated. I made […]

What Dreams Are Made Of

January 24, 2011

I apologize in advance if the Lizzie McGuire song is now stuck in your head. There are just some weekends where everything falls into place.
