This afternoon I’m hitting the road and not stopping until I arrive at Governor Dodge State Park. That location can mean only one thing: annual girls’ camping trip! This is our eighth year of adventures and I’m having a hard time wrapping my head around it. One thing is for sure, though, there will be plenty of onion dip, pretzels, chips, campfires and laughs. Can’t wait!

I’m back in the great state of Minnesota after a long weekend in Colorado and what a wonderful weekend it was! Highlights included a visit to the Hot Springs, an evening in Breckenridge, a fresh coat of snow in Keystone, an attempt at snowshoeing, a pass over the Continental Divide, a Big Little Lies binge and quality time with a long-time friend. Weekends like that are good for the soul. Let’s hope that fresh mountain air can carry me through the busy weeks ahead!

My alarm is set for a VERY early time tomorrow but it’s for a great reason. I’m hopping on a plane and visiting the first friend I ever made at Iowa State! We met more than a decade ago and we’ve been long overdue for a weekend of catching up, taking in the mountains and peace. I’m signing off to soak it all up and I’ll catch you next week when I’m back to my normal altitude!

Many moons ago, I studied abroad in Rome and this weekend two of my roomies from that semester adventure are heading to Minneapolis! I am so, so pumped to show these gals the city, sip wine and reminisce while making some St.Patrick’s Day memories. See you on Sunday!

After the weather blunder last weekend I’ve postponed my Chicago trip and am hitting the road this afternoon! I’m ready for 36 hours with family, friends and some serious podcasting on the way there. Catch you Sunday!

Oh my word, a weekend in Florida was just what I needed! The last couple days with best friends, temperatures in the 80s and far too many Piña Coladas has left me feeling rejuvenated (and maybe with a lingering headache). The very full inbox this morning brought me back to Earth pretty quick but I’ll keep scrolling through my sunny pics when I need a little virtual Vitamin D boost!

Tomorrow is the day. The annual White Bear Lake Polar Plunge (check out this photo from 2014… ha!)and I am not mentally or physically ready. So, I’m heading into an evening of packing up warm clothes, thinking warm thoughts and enjoying some warm drinks. Let’s hope those carry me as we take the leap tomorrow. Brr!

My weekend starts now and I’m ready! There’s a little sporting event in town (ha!) and since I married into a family of golfers the Ryder Cup has become a must-see! I’m donning patriotic gear, grabbing a few cocktails and embracing the country club lifestyle for a few days. After that, it’s back to reality with some more house projects (painting all. the. things.) but a very exciting, spontaneous visit from my mom too! This is going to be a great weekend, I can just feel it. Hope you have the same!

Another weekend, another adventure. After a quiet birthday celebration, the Red Head and I are jetting to Wisconsin this weekend for a wedding celebration. One of my roommates from my Rome study abroad experience (8 years ago… what?!) is getting hitched! Now sure how the time went to fast, but I’m excited to see these two lovebirds tie the knot. Hopefully. I’ll catch you Sunday when I get back to town! Have a wonderful weekend, friends.

We are heading into our homestretch of weddings for the year (only four left!!) and I am particularly PUMPED about the one this weekend. My oldest pal (known the chica since I was three) is getting hitched! I’m so honored to stand by her side and watch her marry her match. I hope Chicago is ready for this wedding party. We’re coming!
