travel blog: madison, wisconsin

I decided that Sir Dave and I were due for a weekend away to relax, eat out and do some exploring. I have had several pals tell me that Madison is a super adorable place to visit with lots to do (and plenty of fried cheese curds to eat), so off we went! We stayed…

travel blog: london, england

Woops! I went to London three months ago and am finally getting around to posting about it, which is ridiculous, because it immediately became one of my very favorite places. It’s such a vibrant city, like there is a pulse to it you can feel just by being out and about. The food, the culture,…

Dave and I were in need of a late summer long weekend of peace and quiet. Unfortunately this need kicked in right as Riot Fest, a 3-day music festival we always attend, featuring bands like Iggy Pop & Motorhead was right around the corner. We go every year, so of course we bought tickets ages…

Sir Dave and I were lucky enough to go to Maine again this year for his family’s yearly reunion on Great Moose Lake. We have traveled all around Maine, but I’ve got to take a moment here to get pretty cheesy and say there is something magical about this place in particular. The history of…

travel: louisville + bourbon trail kentucky

Dave and I wanted to take a low-key-ish road trip and since we’ve done most of the Midwest we decided to head a bit south and hit up the Bourbon Trail. As usual with our vacations, we ate practically everything in sight and had a few (okay, LOTS) of drinks along the way. If you…

DUDES! I just had the absolute best long weekend in New Orleans with Sir Dave. This was a trip I booked last minute (and as a surprise to the hubby) when December was just totally nuts and the gloomy Chicago weather was getting me down. Check one off the 2015 bucket list! I have always…
