Weekend Recap: Nature Center visits, House Hunting and Indian food!

How was your weekend? I had a productive and fun one filled with two nature center visits!

Craig and I headed to the Apple Harvest Festival at Retzer Nature Center in Waukesha on Saturday afternoon. We went on a hayride, a guided hike and enjoyed sharing a slice of apple pie with ice cream and caramel on top.
We also did some house hunting while we were out in Waukesha County. I've found it is always best to drive around subdivisions and get a feel for them. That way I know what areas to keep focusing our search on. Things we love: hilly countryside courtesy of the glaciers, sidewalks since we take lots of walks, some mature trees near a subdivision and of course, a few places to shop and eat at nearby.

After a morning of cleaning (we're trying to weed out things in the house since we hope to move soon), we went on a walk mid-morning today and then I got ready to meet my friend Danielle.

We hiked Whitnall Park's pond and bug day was going on at Wehr Nature Center, so the place was packed! I was excited to find an adorable Little Free Library near the restroom at Wehr. Danielle loved seeing the waterfall at Whitnall Park for the first time. Besides getting a little off the beaten path and getting into some mud, we had a nice hike.
After a hike of over 6500 steps on my FitBit, we earned our delicious dinner at a fantastic Indian restaurant. I'm a Paneer Butter/Tikka Masala girl and Danielle gets the chicken version. It's hard to order something than our favorites. We got amazing coconut naan and mango lassis too.
I'm on the hunt for a replacement mop head and can't seem to find the one we need anywhere, so I stopped at Wal-mart on my way home. Nothing there either. I did get distracted by the Pioneer Woman's cute kitchen products though! The pretty painted bowls reminded me of ones you'd see at Anthropologie.
And this card is so my family (before I was born). I texted it to my mom! Four boys and two girls in the 70's, right before the baby (me) was born in 1980.
Now we're just watching the Packers game and relaxing a bit.

I need to go meal prep and get ready for the week! See ya!
