Well, it was a busy weekend.
Kevin and I went up to the lake home on Friday night. I'm happy to report that no critters moved in since our last visit! Cleo ran around like a maniac and had fun slippin' around on the ice.
Saturday we hit a couple outlet stores in Wisconsin --- good to know they opened a Restoration Hardware Outlet near the Calvin Klein and Addias shops! I finally got a pair of winter boots --- yeah it's nearly the end of January, but we haven't had much winter weather yet. I'm sure it will be no suprise to those that know me, but I also bought a new pair of black Converse low tops.
On our way back to the lake we stopped at the famous Brat Stop. On all my trips to Wisconsin, I can't believe I've never Brat Stopped before. The brat platter was all I could have asked for...yummy Wisconsin sausage love! If you ever find yourself "behind the cheddar curtain" you must stop and check out this place...the people watching is amazing!
Sunday was a big day for Chicago football fans...ya, The Bears are going to the Superbowl --- without a shuffle this time.
We had the game on but it was a busy day starting to rehab the lake house. Kevin and his brother demo-ed the bathroom. Kevin's sister-in-law and I worked on removing wallpaper from this small stairwell --- which is NOT fun at all. Cleo was busy playing with her cousin, Baxter, and trying to dig in the garbage --- the usual.
The evening ended with yummy food at a local Polish restaurant --- pickle soup = delicious! And then some more cocktails back at the house (which is why I was a little "crusty" today.) We all spent the night --- I woke up at 5am to drive back to the city. It's only an hour drive, but I wanted to beat rush hour. I still can't believe that people actually do that commute on a daily basis. That would be my personal hell.
I also worked a bit on the second sleeve of my purple cardigan --- will this thing ever be done?! I'm so bored with this project and anxious to start something new. Knitting sweaters on small needles SUCKS. Even though it's a total pain, the end result is always nice. Once it's completed, I will forget what a pain in the ass it was to work on.
