Marvelous Monday: Milwaukee Edition

Happy Monday everyone!  Maybe it’s the coffee, but it’s nice to be back in the swing of things this morning.  June has been a whirlwind of a month so far, but it has been so much fun!

This weekend was no exception, so it’s a great time for my first link-up to Katie’s Marvelous Mondays!

This weekend, my fiance and I headed up to Milwaukee.  Our first stop was the Milwaukee Public Market, which we had heard so many great things about.  It was adorable, but a little overwhelming.  So, we headed across the street to the market’s annex, which had a great restaurant with rooftop dining.  Enter brunch and beers!  I mean, it is Milwaukee, after all.

Next up, we drove to our hotel and checked in.  Much to my dismay, I found that we could have brought our dog!  I didn’t even think to check!  Oh well, she was off having more fun at Grandma’s.

Next up, we took a walk through town to do a little shopping.  On the trip back, we stopped at this cool outdoor bar right on the river.

Sure enough, though, the rain brought us inside to watch some World Cup.

By the time we got back to the hotel, we needed a nap!  🙂

Later on, we headed out to dinner.  The weather hadn’t been cooperating for most of the day, but, somehow, as soon as we left the restaurant, it was beautiful!  So, it was time for another walk, this time on the lake.

The next morning, we headed to New Berlin, a town outside of Milwaukee, for a long drive competition that Danny was participating in.

We hung out at the golf course all day for the competition, which was really cool to see.  I had a great time, because it felt good to be able to cheer him on.  He has been to many of my races and been cheering me on, so I was excited that the tables had turned.

He took third place and qualified for regionals!

What were the highlights of your weekend?

Ever been to a long drive competition?  What did you think?

  1. What a fun weekend, even if the weather wasn’t all that lovely! Glad you two still managed to have a lovely time. Big congrats to Chris on placing 3rd & advancing to regionals. Now, where will regionals take you? 🙂
