Sorry, sorry, I know it has been two weeks since my last post, we have been busy! We traveled to Wisconsin for over a week. Andy shot an amazing buck, which we had to take care of and get to the taxidermist to mount! He is beautiful, I am so proud of Andy for his hard work and time he put in!
Halloween and Taylor Swift… Great combination if you ask me! When we were in Wisconsin a few weeks ago we visited friends and family, while also hunting. We spent Halloween with some of our best friends in Eau Claire and of course listened to Taylor Swift’s new album 1989 on the drive, and on the long trip over from North Dakota too! Gotta love T-Swift! Andy was a part of the USA Drinking Team and I, all too fittingly, was Taylor Swift pretending to be Becky. In case you haven’t heard the story, definitely Google it.
It was a great night with great friends! I got to hang out in my old stomping grounds, but didn’t feel like a college kid, odd to think I graduated quite a while ago now… But it was fun to see so many friends and meet new ones too!
I also found out that I am a new Grand Big of a beautiful Grand Little. My Little Sister from our sorority Alpha Xi Delta has a new Little Sister of her own. I couldn’t be prouder to see my family grow and to celebrate with my Little the growth of our family!
While on our trip I got to spend some time with one of my best friends and her adorable munchkin who is a year old now (they grow up so fast)! It was great to be back in Appleton for the first time in three months. I haven’t been able to relax and catch up with her in a long time so it was great to visit and remember our time in Appleton. We also visited a friend’s new home and got to see some of our artwork put to use. We couldn’t bring everything on our move to North Dakota, unfortunately, so some of our items were donated to friends and Goodwill.
Getting to visit another one of my best friends was a surprise that I didn’t think I would be able to do during our vacation! I was able to attend her baby shower and see how gorgeous she is with her growing baby bump. She got to see little bit of the quilt I am making for her and little peanut as a gift. I love quilting and a gift of a homemade quilt is good luck! We really are missing being close to our best friends and this visit to Wisconsin showed us what we love and want to get back to. I was almost crying when we packed up the car to drive back to North Dakota… We will be back soon Wisconsin, for Thanksgiving!
Once we finally got back to North Dakota after the really long drive, we were greeted by snow… on November 2nd. Don’t get me wrong, I love snow and the beauty of winter, but it makes the wait for the holidays feel even longer when we get snow so early. I know I will be decorating this next week because it’s driving me crazy not to with the winter weather! Keep an eye out for that post.
