New scarf and Beans & Barley

After being sick all week, we finally got out of the house today and had some fun at Doors Open Milwaukee. More on that in a separate post.

I barely did anything yesterday because I pulled a muscle in my chest/back from coughing. Luckily, I felt much better when I woke up today and it only hurts a little. This virus is not leaving my body and it's maddening.

I was sporting a new infinity scarf from yala designs's made of viscose from bamboo and super soft! The only thing I will have to be careful about is washing it and the other items I ordered. They say to launder with gentle soap, but don't consider Woolite a gentle detergent.

my new Yala infinity scarf (bamboo)--love it!

Craig and I took a break from Doors Open mid-afternoon and went to Beans & Barley for lunch.

I wanted to choose something I normally wouldn't make at home or find anywhere else, so I ordered a Walnut Burger.

Here's the description from their menu: A seasoned walnut & cheese patty from Wisconsin's Historic Trempealeau Hotel. We serve the burger on a rustic sandwich bun, with mayonnaise, lettuce and tomato.

It was really delicious and a moist veggie burger. I loved the bun as well.

We both couldn't finish our meals and decided to bring half home. I loved that the boxes they gave us are reusable.

We hadn't been to Beans & Barley for a couple of years, so it was good to be back. I always enjoy checking out the attached market too.

  1. I'm obsessed with infinity scarves! I think I mostly like them because they're so easy to wear. Not gonna lie, I've gotten stressed over tying a scarf before ;)

  2. Beans & Barley was always on my "to try" list when I lived in MKE but I never made it there. Always heard great things about the food.

  3. I love beans! They are always super packed, so you know it's good! BTW, Love the scarf!
