Have you missed me?! It's been over a week since I've posted anything. With going on vacation, I got too busy to blog. I hate that! But I'm back & this week in Tuesday Talk with Jessica, I'm gonna talk about my Memorial Day weekend which started last Thursday.
I had originally just had Friday off but then decided to take a half day on Thursday to get Up North a little earlier & then just decided to take the whole dang day off as my cousin, Jennifer, was being induced that morning & I thought that I might be able to meet my new baby cousin before I ventured. By the time, she had him & got cleaned up & such, I was already an hour into my trip...believe me, if it would have been less, I probably would have turned around. But I headed up & was glad to get up there early.
We pretty much just hung out chitchatting, eating & such until it was time to hit the sack.
Friday, I took my grandmother into Minocqua to do our usual shopping/lunch date. I was so proud of my self, I went into my favorite sports store & only bought decals for the Captiva. When we hit up Minocqua Fudge, I ended up buying over two pounds of taffy. No jokes.
We spent the rest of the afternoon playing games in the camper & chatting. That night we went out for fish, stopped for some ice cream & came back to play some more games before going to bed.
Saturday, I made some French toast for breakfast & then we just hung out (seeing a pattern) until we had visits from my mom's ex-husband & my husband. Paul & I did get to take a walk down to the lake between rainstorms.
Then we headed off to the typical Wisconsinite thing for a Saturday night - a supper club for drinks & prime rib. I actually tried a Sloe Gin Fizz & liked it! :)
After dinner, I said goodbye to Paul as he headed home & me back to the campground with the grandparents. Again, we hung out & did some coloring in my adult coloring books & then headed off to bed with rain falling.
Sunday, we got things packed up & hit the road. I ended up stopping in Wausau for some Panera Bread all by myself. Since I didn't have any way to access Facebook from the campground, I checked that out while I enjoyed my bread, Mac & Cheese & Bear Claw. Yum! When I got home, I got unpacked, watched some Orphan Black & just relaxed.
Yesterday was the day, the day I would meet my new cousin! So, I got my butt outta bed, showered, ran a few errands, picked up lunch & headed to my cousin's for the day. I got to love up on my new cousin & the new big brother. It was a great day!
My new cousin, "T". I love, love, love him! I cannot tell you how long I snuggled with him yesterday but it was a long time. I really did not want to leave last night but I figured that since I had spent about six hours there, it was time to go home & get ready for the work week. I was/am so jealous that my cousin, Jennifer, & her husband are now off until July to spend time with their new addition. So awesome!
So, how was your Memorial Day weekend?
