Happy Hour! – lets chat!


Hi, remember me?! The girl who used to post semi-regularly and has now been non-existent for the last 2 weeks?!

I’m linking up with Holly over at Osborn Extravaganza (have you seen her new cute little boy?! If not, go check him out!) for just a little bit of chit-chat today!

I thought i’d share a little bit of my life lately since I’ve been gone so long!

Our weekends have been insane and they won’t start clearing up until October… which makes me want to cry! I mean for real… didn’t I learn anything last summer with “saying no” to everything?! Ugh.. Alas.. this is what we’ve been up to:

We spent a weekend in Eau Claire for a golf tournament Logan was in… It was two days and he tied for 2nd out of 10 teams! Score!

While he golfed, I hung out with my Mama and SIL.

We’re only somewhat “matching” ha!

We went out for drinks at Cowboy Jacks – it’s new to EC and their atmosphere is really sweet on the river! We have them in the cities, but they don’t seem nearly as fun!

After drinks, we ate out at Milwaukee Burger and their cheese curds are always *heart eyes*!

We spent time at a few wineries as well that weekend! My favorite winery is Autumn Harvest in Chippewa Falls and it’s the only winery where I actually really liked EVERY wine I tried! My SIL was surprised since she felt the same way after trying some 🙂

I mean, for real… so often, I only like 1 of the wines and the others make me not so happy! Of course, after a few glasses I’m not as picky!  

Autumn Harvest had a Customer Appreciation Day going on and had little animals you could hold, pet and feed! The little piglets were only 5 days old and so sweet! We went to a few greenhouses that have cute little shops before heading to lunch with my Grandma at the mall – it’s the only place in EC that has Rocky Roccoco’s and i’m obsessed so we always need to stop by there!

I clearly haven’t seen sun in all that time we’ve been busy, huh??

We had our annual Crawfish Boil this past weekend and it was a hit as usual!

We had friends come from near and far! We were so excited to have these folks above visit for the day and night! Their little boy is seriously the sweetest. Even though we don’t see them as often as we’d like, he still loves being with us and snuggling 🙂 

We saw friends we haven’t seen all summer long!

We had my SIL in town for the whole weekend and it was so great to have some quality time with her the last few weekends! We watched movies on Sunday on the couch before she left (as well as rented one on Friday) and it was just so much fun! We’re already counting down until we see her again!The spread was huge per usual and it was just so nice to chat with everyone.  It’s fun to get everyone together and just eat some good food, play some fun games and drink some great Sangria 🙂 #priorities

Doesn’t that crawfish just look so yummy!? Thanks to Katie for remembering to take pictures 😉We don’t have our new siding up yet (in case you didn’t notice those pretty holes in the back) but hope to have it done soon!  We’re going with a whole different color so I’m excited to see how it turns out!
My SIL went to the Sculpture Garden in Minneapolis this past weekend as well. I’ve always heard about it (I think everyone has seen the spoon and cherry!!) but never been so we thought we’d give it a try!  I’m not going to lie… it wasn’t all that great! I thought there would be more sculptures but we did see a sweet Bride and Groom doing a first look 🙂

We went to breakfast at Eggy’s Diner right by the Garden and treated ourselves to some Mimosas!  Or in our case, champagne with a splash of OJ! 🙂

I’m hosting a Lips N’ Sips party tonight with my girlfriends and am excited for them to try out the product! When I first started selling it, one of my girlfriends (I’m looking at you, Meagan :)) suggested having a quick girls night so they could all give the colors a try and decide color(s) they love!


I started this little venture (you can read about it here) a few weeks ago and it’s insane how much has been selling! This product definitely speaks for itself and it helps when it’s something I believe in and love!

I got my SIL and MIL (amongst so many other!) hooked and my Mama is trying hers this weekend! If you’re interested in learning more or watching my Live videos – you can join my FB group here.

Hmm that’s been our life lately! I’m hoping to be back to regular blogging and will share about my Lips N’ Sips party tomorrow on the blog as one of my favorites from this week! 🙂

Thanks for sticking around through my delay in the blogging world!

      Girl…. I know… I kept thinking “Oh no, I need to put a post up!!” then something would happen and it would go on the back burner! So, I am back.. and should have another post up later today 🙂 We got his shorts at the US Open in June!! We saw them also in SC at the golf course though – kinda pricey (imagine that!) but they’re so fun!! I’ll find the brand for you so you can google them 🙂

    I’ve been wondering where you were?!?! You’re always doing fun stuff. The wineries look fun and I totally agree, after a few tastings they tend to get better and better. 😉 Those piglets…OMG be still my heart! You look fabulous as ever and I love the white ball/drop earrings. I’ve been debating on getting some and now I just might have to. XOXO

      Thanks for checking in!! I feel like I’ve been gone forever – and I miss you girls! We’re seriously too busy for our own good – I need to take a lesson out of your book and just say NO from now on! And for real.. you should get a pair of those earrings 🙂 I got them at Target for like $12?! From the Baublebar collection and I saw Charming Charlie has some too for cheap!
