Dan and I had a wonderful week-end meeting up with my good bloggy and real life friend Jane aka (Blondie's Journal) and her husband Al. This was our second year in a row getting together and we have plans to meet up this summer too.
We'll have to start calling our get together same time next year~ lol!
Last December, we met in Galena, Illinois which is just over the Wisconsin border. This time we met in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin which is only 12 miles from the Illinois border.
Dan and I set out early because of a predicted snow storm. We drove to Madison, Wisc. Friday night and got a room. No snow on the way down but when we woke up there was lots of the fluffy white stuff on the ground.
Madison is only a 2 hour drive from us but it made our trip on Saturday a lot easier since we only had about 80 more miles to go.
And of course when bloggers get together there are presents! Look at the great stash that Jane got for little Ole me! Those mugs are just the cutest thing!
Then we headed over to meet the guys and partake of a little holiday cheer too!
After that, it was off to watch a local Holiday parade. BRR cold, but fun!
And then a delicious dinner, and back to our rooms to visit before turning in for the night.
We all had a wonderful time and can't wait for our next adventure!
Jane and Al are so much fun and it felt like we were old friends since we had met the previous year.
After arriving home, Dan and I rushed out to buy a tree. Normally we cut our own but since it was so cold and late in the day we decided to purchase one already cut.
I do need to get some better pics so I will post those later!
Take Care everyone and have a great week!
Just like the rest of you it seems like there is so much to do and so little time.
