weekend recap.

hi there and happy monday! how was your weekend?! 
i had a fantastic time in milwaukee with the girls (followed by a rough recovery). 

despite the gross weather (it was rainy, windy and v cold), we made the most out of our trip. we shopped in the third ward, grabbed burgers for dinner (my bacon blu cheese burger was ahhhmazing! i am still drooling thinking about it) and ventured out to two campus bars where we ran into some old friends and danced the night away :)

a few things i learned from our trip: 
-i'm really going to miss julie (brunette in the blue tank w no bangs) this summer- 
she's leaving tomorrow for a summer associate position in buffalo, ny. 
-i have a lot of school pride and i love to see how the campus is changing and becoming even more beautiful.
-red bull is dangerous and i should stop after one or two. 
-it pays to be childhood friends of the manager of a bar (jimmy pictured above).
-when in doubt print out directions for dinner (we got a little scenic tour of the town).
-when people talk about friendly people in the midwest they are probably talking about milwaukee.
-we all still have some pretty sweet dance moves.
-gyros taste pretty good at 3am.


how was your weekend? do you take trips with your friends?

xoxo, 
jillian

  9. in england, they dont let kids buy redbull. you have to be 18 to buy it. i guess because its like crack. makes sense.

  10. Aw this is so cute! My friends and I need to plan girl trips now that we've all graduated. And gyros really are the best food at 3 am! On my campus, restaurants don't close until 5 am usually so we always get the munchies at around 3, haha. :)

  14. I think trips with friends are essential in life!! I take at least one a year. We actually have an annual trip to North Carolina where a bunch of us rent a house during slow season. Its a blast and I look forward to it every year! The same group also tries to get together and go to a Dave Mathews Band Concert somewhere new. Its always a good time. Like I said, an essential in life:)

  19. Looks like you guys had a great time! I want to do something like that with my girlfriends before I move but I'm not sure if it can. It would have to involve a baby most likely but I love that baby so it's okay. I like Milwaukee, I need to go visit again!
