Weekend Update

Hello Monday!  You don't seem so bad when I get to sleep in a few extra minutes, go to work in shorts and know that I get to leave by 1:00pm.  There may or may not be a long over due mani and pedi happening afternoon to celebrate.  And oh right, and it's a short week.  #winning

This weekend went by way to quickly, as always! The hubby had the opportunity to golf at Whistling Straights with his dad, which is conveniently located on the way up north.  They went up ahead early to play on Friday afternoon and  I picked up my mother-in-law after work. The timing worked out perfectly: about the time they were finishing golf, we were driving through and met them there for dinner.  I had never seen the grounds and they are gorgeous.  I had no idea such beautiful rolling hills existed in Wisconsin!

If you ever have the chance to stop and spend some time in Kohler, definitely put Whistling Straights on your list!  Even if you don't golf, it is worth stopping by for lunch or dinner.  The views are gorgeous and the food is out of this world!  I had the best bowl of clam chowder I've ever eaten.





Since it was freezing outside (#welcometowisconsinsummer), the gorgeous fireplace was warm and welcoming!


After sitting in hours of rush hour to get out of the Chicagoland area, I was excited to have a glass of wine.  The hubby was a good sport and let me have two and he drove the rest of the way north.


Saturday's project consisted of mulching part of the shoreline.  Of course dummy me only took a before picture and not an after.  But it looks a lot better.  Just fresh and cleaned up.  Of course, we didn't have enough mulch, so a trip to Home Depot was in order to get more.


Right near Home Depot, there happens to be on of the best places to get ice cream/custard.  So we stopped in for a little treat on our way back to the lake.


A few more shoreline projects and then I got to enjoy a few moments of sunshine on the dock late Saturday afternoon.  Mother nature is making this summer very challenging.  There have been more rainy days then nice days, which means most of the nice days are spent getting beginning of summer projects done instead of enjoying the lake.  But, that's part of having a lake house.  It takes work to enjoy it!  And I wouldn't have it any other way!


Saturday night was a quiet family dinner and a good night sleep.  Sunday.  It rained.  So we did some inside projects, got some laundry done and then drove home.  Of course about the time we were leaving to head home, it was GORGEOUS out.  Just give us a beautiful July Mother Nature!  Please!

How was your weekend?

  1. A lake house sounds absolutely dreamy! My goal one day is to live on a lake or river. My dad has a lake cabin though so for now that will do :-) And we recently re-mulched our house as well! It's amazing what a difference it makes. It's not fun to do, but so worth it.

    1. I hear ya! We would love to live on the water all of the time! But will settle for getting to visit it regularly. We need to re-mulch at home. We've been avoiding it and driving to the lake instead! Whoops. Thanks so much for stopping by!

  3. This not nice summer has been dragging out for too long around these parts too.

    Hopefully next weekend you're all clear!
