I redeemed my free birthday drink at Starbucks on an Evolution Fresh sweet greens and lemon drink. It honestly wasn't my fave, but I knew it was healthy and drank it anyway.
I've been trying a few new Chobani flavors that I found at Target.
Also spotted at Target but not purchased yet-they are now selling Quinoa pasta there. I usually ordered this brand online in the past and I am excited I can pick it up at Target now.
Craig and I visited two sites on the Parade of Homes in Menomonee Falls and Delafield.
I can safely say I liked about 85% of the houses we saw. Most of them had white kitchens and wood trim throughout the house and I've grown to love this combination over the years.
Other things I loved:
Home gyms in finished basements--this yoga studio with a mirror made me envision future plans of starting my own personal training business in our house.
The sign below on the right pretty much sums me up. Yes, I'm a Virgo, but I am a messy one at times and I generally know where everything is, unless you mess up my piles.
A Wisconsin themed guest room made me smile.
Let's just say that I really know what we like in a house and it's going to be very difficult to find a somewhat older house that meets our needs. We've just started looking and it's not easy to find something with our style so far and we do not want to remodel.
I ate out so much in the last week and to be frank, I am pretty sick of it. One place we visited with my in-laws that we loved the atmosphere of was Kegel's Inn at 59th and National Avenue. It's been owned by the same Austrian family for about 90 years and I enjoyed trying to translate the German writing on the wall. Too bad it's not uber friendly for a vegetarian eater like me. I ordered the onion rings and had some items from Craig's fish fry plate.
Enjoyed breakfasts at home instead of rushing to eat like I do on work mornings. My mom gave me a Muesli morning bun that she found at Costco. I really enjoyed it.
Played with the kitties. I am seriously going to miss being away from them at work all day.
Spent time outside and enjoyed the last bits of summer--flowers, lots of walks, hikes, etc.
Finally went on a bike ride with Craig this morning from Greenfield Park onto part of the New Berlin trail. We didn't get on as many rides as I had wished we would this summer, but we have walked almost every single day.
My nephew Andy got married last weekend and we had a fun time in Port Washington enjoying their special day. The reception was at the Watermark at Shully's, which was gorgeous!
