My Weekend in Instagram

I didn’t know what I wanted to write about today, but I realized that Instagram told a good chunk of the story.  Are there (large-ish) bits missing?  Sure.  But we’re playing a long game.

I had a bridal shower on Saturday at noon.  As I was running, it occurred to me that I needed to wear something…put together.  Because people dress up for those things, right?

So I dragged out this frock that I wore once for Passover and then promptly forgot about.


Shopping in your closet: It can be fun.

It’s from Sosie.  I ordered it last year, but I’m 99% positive that it’s this one.

At Dana’s shower, they had cookie-favors (surprise: I am always a fan).


Life lesson: If you eat anything that involves black frosting, it will turn your lips black a la red wine.

You know, just a tip from one friend to another.

And finally, the Four Firkins had a free beer tasting event on Saturday night.  They do complimentary tastings every weekend, but this one involved beer and cheese/chocolate which was just beyond phenomenal.

Michael was extremely on-point as he walked us through the different pairings and what we were meant to be experiencing.  Marcus and I did some beer/food pairing stuff on our first Wisconsin beer-stravaganza, but we haven’t had the opportunity since then.

This was a good welcome back into the fold.



I think when all was said and done (and we had to scamper back home for dinner!), Billy, Marcus and I had tried seven different beers, three different cheeses and two different chocolates.  And lest, I forget, a candied pecan.

We’re lucky to have such a great people nearby.

Today?  A snow day.  AKA The best end to the best weekend.
