We had quite the social calender this weekend starting with Friday night dinner. Our friends Charlie and Becca came over and the girls chatted while the boys cooked up some delicious food. I always look forward to dinners with these two not only because they are such a fun couple; but also because Charlie is such a great cook. Mike loves to whip up scrumptious meals too so when the two of them get together in the kitchen, we know its going to be a feast of food. This dinner was no different with grilled garlic California chicken, marinated grilled shrimp, fresh sweet corn, and sauteed zuchinni and squash. We finished the night off with pieces of chocolate and black forest cake. Sorry for the lack of pictures, I was having such a good time I forgot to get my camera out!
Saturday we went to Oconomowoc to visit our friend Sarah who was babysitting her nephew Daniel. It was so fun to see the two little ones interact! Later we headed back to Tosa and relaxed for a bit before getting ready to head down to Tosa Fest. Mike and I were volunteering for the 2nd year in a row as bartenders with our friend Meighan. This time I invited my friend Britanny from work as well. We had such a good time and may have made a possible love connection for my friend as well!
Sunday was a catch up day. I spent the day cleaning the house, doing laundry, and running errands. I finally got to some things that had been sitting around since the move. It feels good to get closer to being done with moving in.
While taking a break from cleaning I began perusing some of my favorite blogs; I found myself focusing on each blogs vacation entries and then daydreaming about our next vacation. I know you all are thinking “Didn’t you JUST go on your honeymoon?!” but I have always been a traveler and have a great love for it. There are so many places I want to see still and cannot wait to explore.
On the of my list for possible travels of 2012:
2) Thinking bigger- Paris- This one I haven’t shared with Mike yet, but being the history buff that he his I doubt it would take much convincing 🙂 I have always dreamed of going to Paris! Taking three years of French in high school didn’t help the matter either. The little cafes, the fashion, the beautful scenery, the art, the history, what isn’t there to love! It would take a lot of planning and saving but Paris in the spring would be so amazing! If not 2012 then hopefully 2013 🙂
