    HAPPY FRIDAY, FRIENDS! TGIF, am I right? This week went by so fast (as usual). Nic and I were dog sitting his sister’s and her husband’s goldendoodle Mack, and we loved it. Being greeted by an excited pup running up to you when you get home everyday is a feeling that fills you with so much love. Dogs remind you of the simple joys like going on walks and just enjoying every single moment. I haven’t written a Friday Favorites post in a while, and that’s changing now! I’m planning on bringing this series back, featuring events of the week as well as fellow bloggers and blogs. Let’s get right into them! He…

Mimma’s Cafe Looking for delicious, authentic Italian food with a side of exceptional service (and amazing wine)? Your answer is Mimma’s Cafe in Milwaukee.

    Happy (end of the day) Friday, everyone! Today was such a full day and I didn’t have time to write my weekly Friday Favorites blog in the morning. However, that is no excuse! I could not leave you all without my weekly blog. Here are my (late) Friday Favorites! 11.54 Ok, I have to brag because you all know how much I love running. You all also know how my training has been all over the place lately. As you read yesterday, I wanted to run 9 miles to train for my half marathon. Well, today I ended up running 11.54 miles. THAT’S RIGHT! I was so beyond proud of myself because…

    Happy Friday! What a week it has been. This busy week has been full of adventure and new settings, so let’s jump right in to my Friday Favorites! Simplicity (with the help of Menards) Remodeling and decorating the condo has given me many ideas about simple changes that make a huge difference. Our cabinets are white and they all seemed to blend together. Not only that, but they were also very difficult to open. So, my mom found black knobs at Menards that literally changed the whole look of the kitchen! I couldn’t believe how such a small change made the room look entirely different. Exploring This week, a favorite of…

I have a few Friday Favorites that I want to share with you today (and preview future favorites, too)! 1. Shakespeare Last night, we made time in our busy schedules to go see A Midsummer Night’s Dream. I love Shakespeare and this show was incredible!

CRAFTS Oh I have some fun things ahead for you…

    Happy Friday, everyone! I don’t know about you, but this week seemed to fly by. It’s been a busy week with packing and getting ready for our move to Milwaukee! Packing, cleaning, renovations, getting furniture together… it’s an exciting (and hectic) time. And Friday means… my Friday Favorites! 1. Running Routine As my loyal readers now, I love to run. I was never in cross country or track in high school, but I always ran for fun. It’s a way to relieve stress, clear your mind and feel good. Running is always a favorite of mine. Lately, I have been so busy with work, packing, cleaning and getting ready for grad school and…

    Happy Friday, everyone! This Friday Favorites is short, but I hope you all like just as much. 1. Renovations!  I can’t believe it’s already time for renovations and painting in our new condo! Nic and I are moving in in August, and there is a lot of work to be done. Yesterday was the first time I saw the condo at night, and the view of the city lights was incredible. The condo overlooks the city on the right and the lake on the left. I can already picture having a cup of coffee with Nic in the morning watching the sunrise. And, of course, a glass or wine or beer at…

    Happy Friday! Oh, how I love this day. Let’s get right into my Friday Favorites! F Scott. Fitzgerald The beauty and honesty in F Scott. Fitzgerald’s words gives me shivers! He has always been one of my all time favorite authors, ever since I read The Great Gatsby. Today, he is one of my Friday Favorites. But, in reality, he’s my everyday favorite. Here are two of my favorite quotes. Quote 1 “She was beautiful, but not like those girls in the magazines. She was beautiful, for the way she thought. She was beautiful, for the sparkle in her eyes when she talked about something she loved. She was beautiful, for her…
