Now that all of these photos are in one post, I’m realizing I’ve depicted us as serious couch potatoes, Mrs. Potato included. Well, except Joe spent a significant time sweating in the heat with a chain saw on his week off while I wandered around taking photos… Continue reading Our week at the cabin via iPhone
All-inclusive resorts can almost ruin you for all future vacations. Every night we got the opportunity to try different cuisines at the resort’s restaurants (French, Japanese, Cajun, Mexican, seafood, etc.). Below are photos of one of our big group dinners. This one was at the the Japanese restaurant which was tasty as well… Continue reading A few nights in Mexico
These photos aren’t edited. The ocean is really that beautiful and all of my in-laws are really that ridiculously good-looking. (No pressure or anything!). They are also adventurous as Eric, Kim, Rachel, and her friend Katelyn were brave enough to try para sailing. I was only brave enough to frolic… Continue reading Beachin’
As difficult as it was to tear ourselves away from the pool and the bar, we managed a group outing to Playa del Carmen one morning to browse the touristy shops, buy souvenirs, and check out the selection of cheap prescription drugs (just kidding, we couldn’t find any this time). Joe failed… Continue reading Playa del Carmen
Hola amigos! I’ve decided that of all the uncertain things in life, I can declare one thing with certainty. Life dealt me the most amazing hand when it comes to family.

On Valentine’s Day, Joe pulled out the romantic big guns and told me that he had arranged a ski trip for us over the weekend in Duluth. I actually cried because I was so happy and excited. (I bet it’s really fun having an emotionally hysterical wife, right?) It had been three years since we had last gone skiing… Continue reading Duluth Part 1
Again, it really was a lovely lady getaway.
This week, we city/suburb ladies (meaning myself, Cece, my mom, and my Aunt Gina) met in Onalaska Wisconsin to stay at a bed and breakfast located on a farm. Mom and Aunt Gina are quite possibly the biggest animal lovers I know. If something furry needs a home, it always winds up at one of… Continue reading Rainbow Ridge Farms
Cinco de Mayo was also the grand finale of birthday week. I almost feel like I have reached some sort of personal life milestone by planning and preparing for this party and actually pulling it off! (Of course, with much help from my family, Joe, and Sarah!) My parent’s house hosted about 25 people on Saturday afternoon.… Continue reading The BIG first birthday party!
