Well. My weekend was an interesting one to say the least. Believe me, it was fun, but it was definitely a lot of new experiences for me! Here's why:
So I'm a girl originally from a Chicago suburb. I currently go to school in Wisconsin, America's Dairyland. I love it and it may or may not be related to my passion for all things cheesy (and to a lesser extent, dairy-y in general. Yogurt, milk, cottage cheese, ice cream... it's all good.). Basically, what it boils down to is that I am more of a "city girl" than a country girl and I'm
The boyfriend got into town on Friday night and he picked me up to go check out the cattle at the sale. I'm not sure what I was checking out exactly, so there's some room for progress in that area. We walked around, talked to some people, and decided we were starving so we headed to dinner. I am loving that we do fish frys every Friday - I can't get enough. Pretty much every one we've gone to has been delicious, but I have to say I'm partial to frys that have a very battered fish. I've been trying to establish a baseline for the frys by getting cod every time, but I have been told that I have to try a new type of fish next Friday (Well, okay then Mr. Bossypants). Everything after dinner was a low-key night, so I'll get to the exciting part: the sale!
Saturday was devoted to all things bovine. We got to the sale in the late morning and stayed there until the mid afternoon. It was the first time I've ever seen an auction, and it was definitely something else. A whole new way to shop, as I kept joking throughout the day (I hope that is as funny to everyone else as it was to me... Oops). I mostly followed the boyfriend around all day and tried not to get
Sunday.... Sunday was recovery day. I got to sleep in (hooray for not opening at work!) and then went to work in the afternoon. Once I got home I ate a copious amount of mac & cheese and proceeded to fall into a cheese-induced coma. All in all, it was a pretty good day.
So - hope you enjoyed this little glimpse into the life of the girl behind the blog! Like I mentioned earlier, I sucked at taking pictures (even on Instagram). Well, I guess I took a picture of a martini and my stack from Thursday night but that doesn't really fit in with the theme of the post... I'll do better next week, promise!
