Weekend Recap: Girls Madison Weekend

Oh, Mondays… why do you get here so quickly!

Also, if you’re interested, I’ve been participating in Vlogmas so I’m (trying) to put up a YouTube video every day until December 25. Today’s video is my November Favorites!


Weekend Recap: Girls Madison WeekendFriday ended up being the best day. ❤️  Much needed after a crazy work week. I ended up texting me boss in the AM telling him I was going to work-from-home because I was just brain dead. I worked all day with Cora in my lap and logged off immediately at 4:30. Ben ran and got us Thai food and we watched the second Lord of the Rings movie. Once that was over, Ben played one of his video games that I like to watch and then I fell asleep.

Friday’s Vlogmas:


On Saturday I woke up, tried to start vlogging on my phone and my phone just shut down. NOT GOOD! I had to get to Madison to see my friend Lindsay and I couldn’t even get my damn phone to work! I was super stressed while I got ready for work while Ben tried to find another option for me. Finally I did some stupid update and it started to work. UGH Apple …

After a little commotion, I left about a half hour later than I had wanted, but set out on my way. I picked up Ben’s brother in the ‘burbs and dropped him off at UW Madison, then off to Lindsay’s I went. The trip too just over three hours and I finally got to see one my best friends that I haven’t seen in over a year!

Once I got to her place, we headed out to Cafe Hollander for brunch. I got a bloody mary and a quinoa skillet – the skillet wasn’t outstanding, but wasn’t bad either. Then a quick stop at Starbucks and we were on our way to Sun Prairie (right outside of Madison) to visit her boyfriend.

We started getting pretty hungry and headed over to Biaggi’s for dinner. We shared a bottle of wine and I had a gluten-free pasta dish, but I did fall into temptation and had bread as an appetizer. My stomach was SO bloated afterwards… ugh. But it was so good!

We then headed over to DSW and World Market before calling it a night.

Saturday’s Vlogmas:


We woke up pretty early with the dogs and spent the morning watching a few movies. Lindsay also made me an entirely GF breakfast that was SO good! I headed out around 1 pm, stopped at Qdoba to eat quick and then picked up Benjamin’s bro before heading back to the ‘burbs. I spent the rest of the evening hanging out with his family before heading back into the city.

Sunday’s Vlogmas:

It was SUCH a fun weekend and I missed seeing Lindsay so much! After a stressful week at work, it was just what I needed. However I also need a weekend just to sleep – that’ll be this coming weekend! 🙃

How was your weekend?
