Milwaukee (and Boston) Vacation!

Apologies for the long hiatus.  I’ve been busier than expected and therefore sort of uninspired to write lately.  I spent the week before Christmas frantically crocheting and mailing gifts, and doing laundry and packing for a visit to Milwaukee!

So we arrived Christmas morning, and had a lovely Christmas dinner (complete with kielbasa of course!), and then opened presents after watching It’s a Wonderful Life.Image

We spent a lot of time in the cozy house relaxing, playing with the doggies, catching up, and munching on yummy things…


Got to visit the lovely Christmas lights, train and Nativity display in Pewaukee…


…FINALLY watched the Hobbit 2!! It exceeded expectations, that’s for sure. Incidentally, I also noticed that the movie theater we went to had the best popcorn ever. Perfectly buttery and salty, even at 930 in the AM 🙂

…Visited the Milwaukee Public Museum then went out for a delicious steakhouse dinner…

…Met up with an old friend….


…and then met her horse, Hans!


…Finally saw Holy Hill, which I had never seen in my 4 years of living in Milwaukee….


…Hung out with more old friends and had a fabulous time laughing together and catching up…


Husband had to go back to work on yesterday, so I extended my little vacation by trekking out to Boston for a play date with a couple of lovely ladies.  As per tradition, we started our visit with Georgetown Cupcakes where I had a delicious gingerbread cupcake with cream cheese frosting.  Then we shopped, got manicures (MiniLuxe on Newbury = best mani ever), and shopped some more.


The evening was finished off with delicious hot pot (perfect on a chilly night!) and a visit to my favorite Asian food court for custard buns and boba 🙂


It is always such a joy to see family and catch up with good friends.  What a great way to end the year!  Happy New Year everyone! 🙂
