Vive La Revolution

For the past 9 months or so I have been part of a committee/group called SkylightENSEMBLE. You can read more about it here. Being involved has allowed me to network, meet other young professionals, learn more about Skylight and musical theater in Milwaukee, usher, and volunteer my time. Needless to say, I am so glad I got involved.


This Friday we are having a party! If you are looking for something to do Friday night, please come! (And if you are already busy, change your plans!) I will be there, my husband will be there, as will other friends and family. What is better than a night out with friends, some good drinks and food, and dancing? I don't know about you, but I could use a night like that once a week.

If you need more information - leave me a comment or see my crazy Facebook wall. Here is the link to the event page and all the information you need to purchase tickets. I will leave you with this video about this event and the upcoming Skylight season from TMJ4.

A weekend of celebrations!

Last weekend we celebrated Stephen's birthday, the wedding of two of our friends, and Father's Day. We were exhausted by the end of the weekend--but what else are you going to do when your husband turns 28 and you are in your college town for the weekend? It could be our last St. Norbert wedding, so we lived it up. Living it up included sleeping very little and frequenting as many of our favorite De Pere establishments, like Bilotti's. Who doesn't want pizza at 2:30 in the afternoon? Or Erbs and Gerbs at 2:30 am?

It was also a weekend of catching up with old friends and old talents. Check out my husband Irish dancing at the reception. Did you know he could do that? Can't wait for Irish Fest!

I hope you are having lots of summer fun. I am looking forward to another weekend with good weather and good food.

Milwaukee County Parks

Disclaimer: I wrote this post Monday during my lunch and I ran out of time to post it. Hopefully it inspires you to get outside this weekend!

My husband and I spent a wonderful weekend outside. Although the temperature could have been a bit warmer, it was wonderful to be outside both Saturday and Sunday. In fact, I just realized that we visited 3 different Milwaukee County parks this weekend.

Saturday morning we ran through Lake Park and past the North Point Lighthouse. Saturday evening we visited Estabrook Park and Beer Garden with our friends Aaron, Emily, and Ziggy. Then on Sunday we met up with even more friends Andy, Megan, Tom, and Maria for some relaxation and Kubb at Veterans Park along the lake. (The link for Kubb takes you to the Wiki page, which if it is to be believed, states there is a yearly Kubb tournament in Madison every year. Sweet!)

As a renter and someone with a teeny, tiny yard, I appreciate the public park system. Especially when I have 3+ parks within a few miles of my home. Now if it would just warm up enough so I could visit one of our fine beaches, as well.

My park to do list:

  • Custard at Northpoint
  • Bradford Beach
  • Golf at Lake Park
  • Tour the Northpoint lighthouse
